BMT CTN Research Samples Collections

The Blood and Marrow Transplant Clinical Trials Network (BMT CTN) supports investigators engaged in retrospective immunogenetic and immunobiologic studies in hematopoietic cell transplantation by making available numerous research sample and clinical data collections from our BMT CTN clinical trials.  The following protocol-specific links will provide investigators with the following resources:

  • Clinical protocols to review primary and secondary endpoints and other relevant clinical data collected in each trial.
  • Information regarding prospective research sample collection schedules, sample processing, and sample type storage.
  • Protocol-specific research sample collection summaries to facilitate initial assessments of available research samples for future ancillary study planning.
  • Overview of BMT CTN procedures for reviewing and approving ancillary study proposals and current proposal submission form.
