About cGVHD

Chronic GVHD (cGVHD) is a common complication following hematopoietic cell transplantation (HCT). In cGVHD, transplanted immune cells (graft) attack the patient’s cells (host), leading to inflammation and fibrosis in multiple tissues. Approximately 14,000 patients in the United States are living with cGVHD, and approximately 5,000 new patients are diagnosed with cGVHD per year[1].
