Current use and outcomes of hematopoietic stem cell transplantation: The first Brazilian summary slides
Keywords:Data Management, Hematopoietic Stem Cell Transplant, CIBMTR, SBTMO, DBtC, Brazilian Summary Slides
Understanding the HSCT scenario in Brazil is challenging due to the lack of a national registry that allows the analysis of results. The partnership between the Brazilian Cellular Therapy and Bone Marrow Transplant Society (SBTMO) and the Center for International Blood and Marrow Research (CIBMTR) allowed the return of Brazilian data registered in the CIBMTR, through the Data Back to Center (DBtC), in a standardized and organized way. With this database it was possible to know the demographic data and the outcomes of transplants performed in Brazil. The spreadsheet was imported into the Power BI desktop, and functions and charts were created. Between 2008 and 2019, 7,264 transplants were reported to the CIBMTR from 24 Brazilian transplant centers. The partnership between SBTMO and CIBMTR, made the Brazilian registry possible and allowed the development of the first Brazilian Summary slides. Despite the difference in the number of cases and of follow-up time, the results in this study were similar to those presented in the US Summary Slides.
