About the center
The Hematopoietic Stem Cell (HSC) Transplant Program at CHLA was started in 1983. Since then, 2,000 HSC autologous and allogeneic related and unrelated transplants have been performed using bone marrow, PBSC and cord blood for lympho/hematopoietic diseases and solid tumors.
This center has been performing allogeneic transplants since 1983 and has been an NMDP/Be The Match transplant center since April 1989.

- Patients who had their FIRST ALLOGENEIC transplant (cells from a related or unrelated donor/cord blood) during 2017, 2018, 2019, 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 131 patients.
The actual 1-year survival of these patients is 77.8%.
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 78.4% and 90.4%.

Treatments may be similar for diseases within a group. It might be helpful to look at centers that have done transplants for a specific disease and centers that have done transplants for any corresponding broad disease categories.
Centers are not required to report autologous transplants so the numbers might be incomplete.
