Radiation Injury Treatment Network (RITN)

Radiation Injury Treatment Network logo

The Radiation Injury Treatment Network® comprises of medical centers with expertise in the management of bone marrow failure which are preparing to care for patients with Acute Radiation Syndrome following a mass casualty disaster.

RITN plans to accomplish this:

–Before the disaster RITN hospitals develop treatment guidelines for managing hematologic toxicity among victims of radiation exposure and educate health care professionals about pertinent aspects of radiation exposure management through training and disaster exercises.
–During the disaster RITN hospitals provide comprehensive evaluation and treatment in an inpatient and outpatient setting for these victims; the RITN control cell helps to coordinate the response through sharing critical information about the disaster between DHHS-ASPR and RITN hospitals.
–After the disaster RITN hospitals collect patient treatment data for retrospective research through the Center for International Blood and Marrow Transplantation Research.

RITN is led by the US National Marrow Donor Program and American Society for Blood and Marrow Transplantation; made possible through a grant funded by the US Navy Office of Naval Research.
