Connecting Stem Cell Donors to Patients during Covid-19 Pandemic
COVID-19 created many challenges for cell therapy patients, collection sites, transplant centers, couriers, and donor registries. The National Marrow Donor Program (NMDP) is now releasing some of the first data detailing the pandemic’s impact on transplant centers and donor registries, and the steps that have helped bring hope to so many patients this past year. NMDP’s Be The Match® connects 467 organizations and transplant centers around the world.
Remarkably, the number of unrelated donor (URD) grafts infused at domestic transplant centers following the initial phase of COVID-19 was only 4% less than the same time period one year earlier!
Discover the supply chain methods NMDP employs to ensure the safe delivery of unrelated donor (URD) products to patients around the world. Register now for ideas to enhance your facility.
