Description: Contains data collected on recipients of autologous bone marrow and peripheral blood stem cell transplants -- those in which a portion of the patient's own blood or bone marrow is removed before, and returned to them after, high dose radiation and/or chemotherapy. Over 380 institutions in the United States, Canada, Mexico, and South America participate. About 65% of auto- transplants performed in these regions are reported to the ABMTR. The present database includes information for more than 66,000 patients transplanted. Nearly 4,500 new patients are registered yearly.
