Abstract:

During this period, the National Marrow Donor Program used grant funds to support activities directed toward the following goals. 1 Enhance an already effective system which rapidly identifies and tracks the availability of matched donors for patients requiring marrow transplants. 2 Increase the total number and racial diversity of NMDPs volunteer donor file and provide HLA-DR typing on as many donors as possible in an effort to reduce patient search time and costs. 3 Perform HLA typing of the donorrecipient samples stored in NMDPs research sample repository, and compare the detailed molecular typing results with patient outcome data to determine the correlation between post- transplant outcome and degree of HLA match.
