Non-Therapeutic Protocol

NMDPD: National Marrow Donor Program: A Research Database for Allogeneic Unrelated Hematopoietic Stem Cell Transplantation

Type of Protocol/Clinical Study

Associated Stem Cell Transplant Studies


The National Marrow Donor Program (NMDP) is a network of Donor Centers, Cord Blood Banks, Apheresis Centers, Collection Centers and Transplant Centers throughout the United States and several international countries. These groups work together to provide “Hematopoietic Stem Cells” (HSC) to patients eligible for an unrelated stem cell transplant.

The purpose of this study is to collect information from the medical records of patients receiving an unrelated transplant. The NMDPs database contains information like age, race, sex, quality of life, and medical information about unrelated donor stem cell transplant recipients. Information in this research database may be helpful towards improving the results of future patients receiving transplants.



Only St. Jude patients accepted for unrelated transplant are eligible.
