Abstract:

The Autologous Blood and Marrow Transplant Registry ABMTR is a voluntary organization of 260 autotranspiant centers that contribute clinical data on consecutive autotranspiant recipients to a Statistical Center at the Medical College of Wisconsin. The ABMTRs database includes information for more than 16,500 women receiving autotransplants for breast cancer. According to data reported to the ABMTR, breast cancer is the most common indication for blood and marrow transplantation allogeneic or autologous in North America. This contract facilitated numerous enhancements to the ABMTRs clinical database, statistical support services and informational programs. These include collection of socioeconomic and clinical data on women receiving autotrausplants for breast cancer and institutional data on centers doing transplants, streamlining data entry and management, development of appropriate statistical techniques for analyzing posffransplant data, and expansion of programs to provide access to collected data for patients, physicians and others involved in caring for women with breast cancer.
