chronic myeloleukemia
I have undergone several courses of chemotherapy for chronic myeloleukemia, without much effect. When I consulted Dr. Shapira, he offered me a protocol that included a newly developed drug that had not yet been approved in Russia. After the course of treatment, my blood tests finally came back to normal.

Specialization

Professor Shapira is an internationally recognized expert in the treatment of:

  • Leukemia;
  • myeloma;
  • lymphoma;
  • myelodysplastic syndrome (MDS).

Prof. Shapira is a world-renowned specialist in bone marrow transplantation, including in elderly patients.

When performing bone marrow transplants in adult patients, Prof. Michael Shapira and his colleagues utilize the most modern, innovative methods of medicine.

Education
  • Faculty of Medicine, Hebrew University of Jerusalem, Israel Clinical residency at the Department of Internal Medicine, Hadassah Medical Center, Israel
  • Specialization in Hematology in the Department of Bone Marrow Transplantation
Clinical experience
  • Graduated from the Faculty of Medicine at Hebrew University in 1990. Worked as a volunteer in the Israel Defense Forces (IDF). Specialized in internal medicine.
  • In 1999, he graduated with honors from Hebrew University. In the same year, he was hired as a senior physician in the Department of Bone Marrow Transplantation at Hadassah Ein Kerem Medical Center.

 

In parallel with his medical practice, he was involved in research, teaching and specialized in hematology.

Michael Shapira is the principal investigator in several clinical trials. During his time at the clinic, he developed and implemented new therapeutic and research techniques: hematopoietic stem cell transplantation in the elderly; the use of undifferentiated cells to restore organ function; and the treatment of graft versus host complications using innovative techniques including novel agents, special procedures and local therapies.

Research activities
  • Prof. Michael Shapira is Israel’s leading oncohematologist and author of the biggest breakthrough in the field of transplantology. The stem cell transplantation treatment he developed made this procedure possible for the elderly. Previously, the age of the patient was the main contraindication: in some cases, the procedure was prohibited if the patient was over 50 years old.

The professor’s methodology proved that several factors (general state of performance, active clinical problems, past medical and surgical history, eating habits) cumulatively influence the indications for transplantation. Only consideration of all prerequisites can provide an objective picture when prescribing a transplant procedure.

Thus, many patients, including those over 70 years of age, have undergone allogeneic transplantation of undifferentiated cells. Several innovative treatment protocols have been developed for this purpose and are used for transplantation in high-risk patients.

  • He has authored and co-authored 123 scientific articles in the fields of hematology and transplantation.
