Centralized Cord Blood Registry to Facilitate Unrelated Cord Blood Transplantation

The safety and scientific validity of this study is the responsibility of the study sponsor and investigators. Listing a study does not mean it has been evaluated by the U.S. Federal Government. Read our disclaimer for details. Identifier: NCT00737516
Recruitment Status : Completed
First Posted : August 19, 2008
Last Update Posted : June 21, 2013
Information provided by (Responsible Party):
National Marrow Donor Program

Brief Summary:
The National Marrow Donor Program (NMDP) has established a system for registering, matching, and tracking unrelated donor cord blood units (CBUs) and transplant outcomes. Study subjects are donors who enroll through collaborating cord blood banks. This study creates uniform collection, screening, testing and storage requirements for cord blood units. The purpose of standardization is to improve efficiency in the selection of cord blood units for transplantation.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Leukemia Lymphoma Myelodysplastic Syndromes Biological: HPC, Cord Blood Phase 2

Detailed Description:
The NMDP Cord Blood registry is organized as a network of member cord blood banks and transplant centers whose interactions are managed by the NMDP's Center for Cord Blood. Banks agree to comply with uniform collection, screening, testing and storage requirements. Upon approval of membership, cord blood banks submit detailed information on each stored CBU for registration into a proprietary computer system. A transplant center, working on behalf of potential recipients, submits search requests to the NMDP and receives electronic reports detailing potentially suitable CBUs. From these reports, the transplant center selects a CBU(s) for further testing, which includes at a minimum confirmation of the CBUs Human Leukocyte Antigen (HLA) typing data. Upon final selection of the desired CBU for transplantation, arrangements are made for timely shipment of the unit to the transplant center. Following transplantation, recipient outcome data are submitted by the transplant center for addition to the study database.
