Federal government renews contract for collecting and maintaining national stem cell transplantation database
Date:11/1/2012

The Medical College of Wisconsin (MCW) Center for International Blood and Marrow Transplant Research (CIBMTR) successfully competed for, and was awarded, renewal of the Stem Cell Therapeutics Outcomes Database contract with the U.S. Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA). The CIBMTR administers the database as a key component of the national hematopoietic cell transplantation program. Hematopoietic stem cells are the cells responsible for continual regeneration of circulating blood cells throughout life; they are not embryonic stem cells.

The HRSA first awarded the contract to CIBMTR in 2006 to develop and maintain the national Stem Cell Therapeutic Outcomes Database (SCTOD), which is a standardized outcomes registry of allogeneic (related and unrelated donor cells) marrow and cord blood transplants performed in the United States. Funding for the first year of this new contract is $3.8 million, with an additional four years of negotiable funding.

The outcomes registry of the CIBMTR currently contains the status of 330,000 transplant recipients, as well as critical information to continually evaluate the operations of the national transplant program. All U.S. transplant centers that perform allogeneic marrow and cord blood transplants are required to provide patient outcomes data to the registry.

"CIBMTR is privileged to continue to operate the Outcomes Database on behalf of the C.W. Bill Young Cell Transplantation Program," said J. Douglas Rizzo, M.D., M.S., professor of medicine at MCW, associate scientific director at CIBMTR and principal investigator of the SCTOD. "CIBMTR delivers value by using the Outcomes Database to provide clinicians, scientists, patients and policymakers the information they need to make the best possible clinical decisions. It is a beneficial platform to expand important research to advance the field, plan clinical trials, facilitate quality improvement and perform studies on behalf of policym
