Working with many rare forms of blood disorders, the Stanford Hematology Program brings together a multispecialty team of experts dedicated to treating leukemia as well as other benign and malignant hematologic disorders.
Offering state-of-the-art chemotherapy protocols for leukemia and other hematologic malignancies, as well as working seamlessly with Stanford's highly-acclaimed Blood and Marrow Transplant Program, the Hematology Program strives to assure the best possible outcome for patients. Our goal is to improve the survival and quality of life of patients, and Stanford hematologists were instrumental in the development of the National Comprehensive Cancer Network (NCCN) guidelines for the management of hematologic malignancies.

Immunotherapy (also called biological therapy, biological response modifier therapy, or biotherapy) is designed to boost the body's immune system in order to fight cancer. The cells, antibodies, and organs of the immune system work to protect and defend the body against foreign invaders, such as bacteria or viruses. Doctors and researchers have found that the immune system might also be able to both determine the difference between healthy cells and cancer cells in the body, and to eliminate the cancer cells.
