How a Large Database of “Real World” Clinical Data Improved the Outcomes of Blood and Bone Marrow Transplantation

The Center for International Blood and Marrow Transplant Research (CIBMTR) began collecting and analyzing clinical data on hematopoietic stem cell transplants in 1972, just 4 years after the first successful bone marrow transplants were done. Over the past four decades, data from this outcomes registry has led to changes that both expanded access to this therapy and increased survival. Linking these data with analyses of bio-specimens and using it to plan and implement clinical trials provided some of the most impactful and practice-changing information for the field. As tools to collect and analyze large amounts of data become both more sophisticated and more accessible, lessons from the CIBMTR on how to use real world data to advance science and clinical care are increasingly relevant.
