Our Doctors

Care and Treatment of Amyloidosis

Treatments

Because amyloidosis diagnoses are relatively uncommon, most clinicians have little experience taking care of patients with the disease. Many patients therefore prefer to receive care (or a second-opinion) at an amyloid center (such as Stanford), where patients with the disease are commonly cared for, and a treatment team experienced with the disease is present.

While there is no cure for amyloidosis, treatment therapies can effectively manage amyloid signs and symptoms. Specific treatment options vary based on the type of amyloidosis.

These include:

Amyloidosis medication therapy

Using a combination of steroid and chemotherapy drugs.

Chemotherapy and bone marrow transplant in amyloidosis

Strong doses of chemotherapy followed by a bone marrow transplant to restore the body's bone marrow cells.

Heart transplant

A surgical option to treat advanced heart failure, a condition that occurs when the heart can't pump enough oxygenated blood to meet the needs of the body's organs.

Liver transplant

A surgical procedure performed to replace a diseased liver with a healthy liver from either a deceased or a living donor.
