Disease-Specific HCT Indications and Outcomes Data
New outcomes data and research has defined which patients can benefit from hematopoietic cell transplant (HCT) and when this therapy is best applied. HCT offers a potential cure for blood cancers, such as leukemia and lymphoma, and other life-threatening diseases.
HCT Data Trends
Overall volume trends and indications for transplantation are presented in the figures below. The data show autologous and allogeneic HCT volume, age trends and disease indications for transplant.
Data in this section have been prepared by the CIBMTR® (Center for International Blood and Marrow Transplant Research®). The CIBMTR is a research collaboration between the National Marrow Donor Program® (NMDP)/Be The Match® and the Medical College of Wisconsin.

HCT Consultation Timing Guidelines
The National Marrow Donor Program® (NMDP)/Be The Match® and the American Society for Transplantation and Cellular Therapy (ASTCT) have jointly developed guidelines for transplant consultation and referral timing based on disease characteristics.  The National Comprehensive Cancer Network Clinical Practice Guidelines (NCCN Guidelines®) were consulted when developing these guidelines and are a valuable tool for determining risk stratification. 
Our guidelines highlight disease categories that include patients at risk for disease progression and who should be referred for a consultation for autologous or allogeneic transplantation.

Clinical Trials Search and Support
The NMDP/Be The Match offers the Be The Match® Jason Carter Clinical Trials Search and Support (CTSS) program, which can provide clinical trial navigation to your patients. The CTSS Program was created to help people with blood cancers or blood disorders and their families find and join clinical trials.
