A bone marrow transplant involves taking healthy immune cells from one person (the "donor") and putting them inside someone with CGD (the "host"). After a successful bone marrow transplant, the person with CGD now has an immune system that can fight off infections. Learn more.
A CGD patient’s blood stem cells are collected and a correct version of the gp91-phox gene is inserted into the stem cells. The CGD patient undergoes chemotherapy before the cells are intravenously infused into the patient. After the transplant, the stem cells are able to produce new white blood cells that can fight off infection. Learn more.
