Clinical Department & Center



As medical care has become more specialized over the years, the presence of our department in the university hospital has also become increasingly important.  
There are many blood diseases. Our department covers all of them, and participates in many nationwide research team projects to successfully advance basic and clinical research.   
We cooperate with many affiliated hospitals specializing in blood diseases and strive to improve the medical care for these diseases.   
Patients with any concerns about hematologic diseases are encouraged to visit our department without hesitation. We will help you find the treatment you need.


Medical care system

We provide hematopoietic tissue transplant therapy, including bone marrow transplantation, and chemotherapy for patients with hematopoietic malignancies, such as acute myelogenous leukemia, acute lymphoblastic leukemia and malignant lymphoma. We also provide medical care for idiopathic thrombocytopenic purpura, aplastic anemia, blood coagulation disorders including hemophilia, and other general hematologic diseases, as well as HIV infection. For more information, please see the department’s website.

Treatment policy

Our department is actively involved in hematopoietic tissue transplant therapy, including bone marrow transplantation, as curative treatment for leukemia, malignant lymphoma, myelodysplastic syndrome, adult T cell leukemia, aplastic anemia, etc., and performs living unrelated transplantations as often if not more often than living related transplantations as an official facility accredited by the Japan Marrow Donor Program.   
We strive for the radical cure of hematopoietic malignancy, which used to be called a fatal disease.
