Registries

Cancer registries are databases of cancer information that is used in research. They offer people the chance to participate in research that helps find new cancer treatments and cures. Registries also give researchers valuable data on how cancer works.

The OHSU Adult Blood and Bone Marrow Transplantation Program belongs to the Center for International Bone Marrow Transplant Registry (CIBMTR).

The CIBMTR’s mission is to help make blood and marrow transplants more successful. It contributes to knowledge of stem cell transplants. The CIBMTR is a unique source of data and statistical expertise for doctors and scientists. Its database has information on more than 220,000 people who have had blood and marrow transplants. These data, and statistical help from the CIBMTR, have led to the successful completion of hundreds of studies to improve transplants. The data and statistical assistance from the CIBMTR have helped doctors make medical decisions and patients to live longer, healthier lives.
