Transplant Outcomes & Data

Collecting and analyzing data about patients who have received a bone marrow or umbilical cord blood transplant is helpful for physicians as well as patients and their families. The outcomes and data on this website show transplant results from two registries.

The cells for transplant may be from:

  • The patient (autologous)
  • A patient’s sibling or another family member (related allogeneic)
  • A volunteer donor (unrelated allogeneic)

The cells for transplant can be collected from bone marrow, peripheral blood, or umbilical cord blood (after a baby is born).

  • Transplant Outcomes includes reports of patient outcomes and other information about transplants using autologous, related allogeneic, and unrelated allogeneic donors from the transplant outcomes registry of the C.W. Bill Young Cell Transplantation Program, also called the Stem Cell Therapeutic Outcomes Database. Transplants in these reports were performed at transplant centers in the United States.

Three reports can be tailored to your information needs.

    • Patient survival
    • The number of transplants performed at a specific transplant center
    • The number of transplants performed for a specific disease

The transplant outcomes registry is a database of information about bone marrow and umbilical cord blood transplants. This information is used for research to guide clinical decisions and identify ways to improve transplant outcomes. The transplant outcomes registry is managed under a Federal contract by Center for International Blood and Marrow Transplant Research®.

  • Donor Registry Transplant Data are annual statistics about transplants using only unrelated allogeneic donors from the donor registry of the C.W. Bill Young Cell Transplantation Program, also called the Be the Match Registry®; the donor registry also includes cord blood units from the National Cord Blood Inventory. Transplants facilitated through the donor registry were performed at transplant centers throughout the world.

These charts and graphs show the total number of transplants performed as well as the numbers of transplants by:

    • Diagnosis
    • Patient age
    • Patient race and ethnicity
    • Cell source

The donor registry is a listing of potential donors and donated cord blood units. Physicians search the donor registry to find blood-forming cells that closely match the patient’s cells. The donor registry is operated under Federal contracts by the National Marrow Donor Program®.
