NMDP Radiation Injury Treatment Network

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.

2020 Events and Information

  • National Alliance for Radiation Readiness Radiation (NARR) Training Modules for Public Health published
    • Radiation emergencies require an all-hazards response with necessary additions to protect responders and receivers, limit health impacts and save lives. Due to their high threat/low probably nature, public health preparedness planners often focus resources elsewhere. Throughout these training modules, subject matter experts (SMEs) will walk you through the radiation-specific issues that should be considered before and during the four phases of response. These SMEs are members of the National Alliance for Radiation Readiness (NARR) and represent public health, healthcare and emergency management.
