Stem Cell Transplant Complete for Yale’s Schwartz

Yale’s Mandi Schwartz received the long-awaited stem cell transplant Wednesday in a 32-minute procedure at Seattle Cancer Care Alliance’s inpatient transplant unit at the University of Washington Medical Center.

Yale’s athletic department confirmed the procedure in a post on a site dedicated to Schwartz’s battle with acute myeloid lymphoma.

The next step is engraftment, when the transplanted stem cells start to grow in her bone marrow and manufacture new blood cells and immune cells, according to the post.
