While more than 42,000 organ transplants were complete in 2022, there are still more than 100,000 people waiting on a transplant waitlist. Although there were fewer blood and bone marrow transplants completed in 2020 (more than 9,000), there are many risks – like graft-versus-host disease – that require attention post-transplant. With a long-stranding legacy in transplant, Sanofi remains committed to the community by identifying solutions that can help address their unmet needs.
