The C.W. Bill Young Cell Transplantation Program (Program), also called the Be the Match Registry®, reports statistics about the registry annually. The registry is a listing of potential marrow donors and donated cord blood units. The donor registry also includes cord blood units from the National Cord Blood Inventory. Physicians search the registry to find blood-forming cells that closely match their patients’ cells so they can get the transplant they need.
The registry is operated under Federal contracts by the National Marrow Donor Program®.
