Bone Marrow and Cord Blood Donation and Transplantation

A bone marrow or cord blood transplant (also called a BMT) replaces a patient's diseased cells with healthy blood-forming cells so that the patient can live a longer, healthier life. The blood-forming cells (stem cells) used for transplant can come from the patient (autologous) or from a relative or unrelated donor (allogeneic). Learn about:

Data about Bone Marrow and Cord Blood Transplantation

The SCTOD stores data about marrow and cord blood transplants and provides information for research to improve patient outcomes.
