Long-Term Follow-Up Program

Our Long-Term Follow-Up (LTFU) programs focus on patients who have undergone a bone-marrow or stem-cell transplant and immunotherapy treatment. Hutch physicians and researchers work with a patient’s primary care doctor to resolve medical problems and educate the patient about preventing and managing post-treatment issues.
