About NIH/National Heart, Lung and Blood Institute ~ Hematology Branch

The Hematology Branch at the National Heart Lung and Blood Institute conducts clinical research studies on a number of hematologic diseases including aplastic anemia, myelodysplasia, chronic autoimmune thrombocytopenic purpura, multiple myeloma, and T-large granular lymphocytic leukemia. The Hematology Branch also has a strong interest in evaluating individuals with fanconi�s anemia, paroxysmal nocturnal hemoglobinuria, and post-hepatitis aplastic anemia for possible novel therapies. For individuals to be admitted to the NIH Clinical Center, they must be referred by a physician and meet specific protocol requirements. There is no charge for medical care at the Clinical Center since patients are participating in research studies. In most instances, patients are expected to pay the costs of their travel and local lodging.
