    At Akron Children’s Hospital, Akron, Ohio we also give cells hub to hub. In the past, all blood products were given hub to hub, but we now only give stem cells and bone marrow hub to hub.  We do not administer CAR cells here.

    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?
