    At UCSF Benioff Children’s Hospital Oakland, we go hub to hub, or hub to syringe.

    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?
