- Age6-17 years oldNumber of Participants13Research GoalImprove Quality of LifeA small study found that blood or marrow transplant (BMT) may preserve intelligence in children with sickle cell disease.
- AgeN/ANumber of ParticipantsN/AResearch GoalIncrease AccessSome people with Medicaid insurance face delays or other problems getting blood and marrow transplant (BMT) for sickle cell disease.
- Age1-49 years oldNumber of Participants996Research GoalImprove SurvivalBlood or marrow transplant (BMT) can help people with severe sickle cell disease, but little was known about the best age for a person to get BMT or which type of donor is best.
- Age1 - 48 years oldNumber of Participants1,425Research GoalImprove SurvivalBlood or marrow transplant (BMT) can cure sickle cell disease for some people. Now, doctors can predict which people will benefit most from BMT.
- Age22 - 44 years oldNumber of Participants33Research GoalImprove Quality of LifeModerate-intensity exercise, like biking, swimming, or fast-paced walking, can help people with sickle cell disease make more blood vessels in their muscles. That’s according to new research.
- Age15 - 71 years oldNumber of Participants80Research GoalImprove SurvivalMany people don’t have a fully matched family or unrelated donor for a lifesaving blood or marrow transplant (BMT). Now, a new treatment may help more people have a safe mismatched BMT.
Lower income children with blood cancers are less likely to survive after blood and marrow transplantationAge0 - 18 years oldNumber of Participants3,749Research GoalImprove SurvivalChildren who have blood cancers are less likely to survive after transplant if their families are low-income compared to children from higher-income families, a new study found.
- AgeN/ANumber of ParticipantsN/AResearch GoalImprove SurvivalA group of doctors who specialize in blood and marrow transplants, or BMT, now recommend CAR T-cell therapy in some cases.
- AgeN/ANumber of ParticipantsN/AResearch GoalBe The Match Registry® overcomes COVID-19 challenges
- Age19-80 years oldNumber of Participants274Research GoalImprove SurvivalResearch showing that cells can be carefully frozen and stored for blood and marrow transplant (BMT) will save lives during the COVID-19 pandemic and beyond.
- Age25-50yrsNumber of Participants14Research GoalImprove Quality of LifeImprove SurvivalBlood and marrow transplant (BMT) sometimes affects hormones and sexual health.
A group of doctors, researchers, and patient advocates published a review of scientific research. They said that BMT sometimes causes problems with hormones and sperm. Also, BMT may cause graft-versus-host disease (GVHD) and secondary cancers that impact the penis, testes, and scrotum.
- Age0-81 years oldNumber of Participants2,456Research GoalImprove SurvivalThe largest study of its kind found that unlicensed umbilical cord blood is safe and effective for umbilical cord blood transplant (UCBT).
- AgeN/ANumber of ParticipantsN/AResearch GoalImprove Quality of LifeMost children who have had blood or marrow transplant (BMT) may need to delay returning to school until they have been fully vaccinated for COVID-19.
- Age18-38Number of Participants1,365Research GoalImprove Quality of LifeYoung adults who’ve had allogeneic blood and marrow transplant (BMT) are less likely to be employed than their peers.
- AgeN/ANumber of ParticipantsN/AResearch GoalImprove SurvivalBlood and marrow transplant (BMT) is helpful for older people, but only 5-10% of older people who need BMT get this lifesaving treatment.
