- Registry operational information available on: https://share.wmda.info/x/d4JGE
- Update January 21, 2021 DKMS-BMST registry is accepting search requests from international registries as usual.
- CT-process: DKMS-BMST recommend a Health & Availability Check (HAC) instead of requesting a CT. A HAC request includes a donor health history questionnaire as well as an information session with the donor. Please be aware that a CT testing has to be performed before transplantation. Therefore, for donors without regular CT, a CT + Workup request (CT/WU-Combo) has to be requested, where CT samples are then taken in addition to the pre-collection samples on the day of donor’s physical examination.
- Work-up requests: DKMS-BMST registry currently accepts work-up requests as usual. Routine medical examination of donors is carried out including risk evaluation of COVID-19 exposure. The transplant center will be notified immediately if any ineligibility has been determined
