The Duke Hemostasis & Thrombosis Center is a multidisciplinary program devoted to improving the care of patients with bleeding and clotting disorders through innovative basic and clinical research efforts. The Center was formed in 2001, when it was selected by the Centers for Disease Control & Prevention to be one of eight pilot Hemostasis & Thrombosis Centers in the United States . Leadership of the program includes faculty in Hematology, Maternal-Fetal Medicine, Pediatric Hematology, and Cardiology. Ongoing clinical research trials are investigating the optimal 'dose' of platelets for replacement therapy, the role of inherited hypercoagulable states in intrauterine growth restriction, and therapeutic strategies for patients with end-stage renal disease and recurrent vascular access occlusions.
