Overall center survival
Patient survival information for this center
This center's actual 1-year survival results are similar to the expected rate for this center.
The survival information we have for this center includes ONLY:
- Patients who had their FIRST ALLOGENEIC transplant (cells from a related or unrelated donor/cord blood) during 2018, 2019, 2020, and
- Who had their transplant at a U.S. transplant center, and
- Who had follow-up information provided by the transplant center for analysis
For this center, we have survival information for 111 patients.
The actual 1-year survival of these patients is 80.2%.
Compared to similar patients transplanted at all centers in the U.S., we expect that the 1-year survival for patients at this center to be in a range between 67.7% and 83.0%.
