NMDP Radiation Injury Treatment Network
The Radiation Injury Treatment Network® (RITN) provides comprehensive evaluation and treatment for victims of radiation exposure or other marrow toxic injuries.
Many of the casualties with radiation injury will be salvageable but require outpatient and/or inpatient care. Recognizing this, the US National Marrow Donor Program (NMDP), US Navy and American Society for Blood and Marrow Transplantation (ASBMT) collaboratively developed RITN, which comprises of medical centers with expertise in the management of bone marrow failure, stem cell donor centers and umbilical cord blood banks across the US.
The goals of RITN are:
- to develop treatment guidelines for managing hematologic toxicity among victims of radiation exposure,
- to educate health care professionals about pertinent aspects of radiation exposure management,
- to help coordinate the medical response to radiation events, and
- to provide comprehensive evaluation and treatment for victims at participating centers.
