Researchers at the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center were approved to begin a trial to test whether a bone-marrow transplant from a healthy donor can cure patients with severe Crohn's disease by giving them a new immune system. The Crohn's Allogeneic Transplant Study's investigation team also includes the University of Washington, Seattle Children's and the Benaroya Research Institute.
