This slide set was developed by the Committee on Education of the American Society for Blood and Marrow Transplantation (ASBMT) in conjunction with the Center for International Blood and Marrow Transplant Research (CIBMTR) and the National Marrow Donor Program (NMDP)/Be The Match®. The field of hematopoietic cell transplantation (HCT) has grown increasingly complex with expanding applications and donor options. A major component of a successful transplant outcome is appropriate and timely referral of patients for transplant consultation.

A contributing factor to successful transplant outcomes is appropriate and timely referral of patients for transplant consultation. Reference the 2017 Recommended Timing for Transplant Consultation guidelines for the latest disease-specific HCT referral timing recommendations published jointly by the NMDP/Be The Match® and ASBMT. 

This slide set was developed to address advances in HCT and optimal timing of referral. It includes the following sections:

  • Utilization of HCT by donor source and numbers of transplants
  • Data on non-malignant and malignant hematologic diseases for which transplant is commonly utilized including
    • Recommended timing of referral
    • Landmark trials per disease
    • Survival trends for each disease


NOTE: The slide set, consisting of a library of more than 100 slides to choose from, may be used in part (use only the sections you wish) but the slides themselves may not be altered.
