Children's Hospital is part of the UPMC family.
The purpose of the National Marrow Donor Program (NMDP) is to study ways to improve unrelated donor transplants and to ensure that all people in need of a transplant have access to the treatment. To pursue this goal, the NMDP will collect demographic and medical information on recipients of an unrelated donor marrow, blood stem cell or cord blood transplant. By collecting and studying the cells and plasma of donors and recipients, researchers may learn more about improving the tissue matching between unrelated donors and their recipients. More than 29,000 individuals have contributed to the NMDP Research Sample Repository.
Patients that are scheduled to receive or have previously received bone marrow, blood stem cells, or cord blood from an unrelated donor, as facilitated by the NMDP, will be asked to participate.
Boys: All ages
Girls: All ages
Prior to transplant, a blood sample will be collected for the NMDP research repository. In addition, the clinical outcomes will also be provided to the NMDP registry. All data and samples are handled to maintain patient confidentiality.
