Thalassemia Research and Care at UCSF Benioff Children's Hospital Oakland
Dear patients, families, friends, and providers:
Along with patient care, medical research is a primary focus at the Comprehensive Thalassemia Center at UCSF Benioff Children’s Hospital Oakland. Each year we publish a special edition of the Perspectives newsletter which focuses on research studies being conducted for thalassemia. We hope this is a useful tool in keeping patients, families and the extended medical community abreast of current research, as well as in educating the community on thalassemia itself. Patients—-all of the studies mentioned here are optional. If you are interested in participating in a study or have questions, please talk to your medical care provider.
