    We infuse hub to hub for stem cell/bone marrow infusion. We have not yet started CAR infusion but plan to very soon, so I am also interested what other institutions do as well.  Thanks so much!

    At my institution we generally give cell therapy products including (BM, PBSC, and CAR T-cells) hub-to-hub to prevent damage to the cells. I was wondering if anyone could comment on whether their institution gives HSCT and CAR cells through a Clave, T-cap, or other blue connector or if your institution removes the cap and infuses cell therapy products hub-to-hub as we do?
