Abstract : During this period, the National Marrow Donor Program (NMDP) used grant funds to support activities directed toward the following goals: 1. Enhance an already effective system which rapidly identifies and tracks the availability of matched donors for patients requiring marrow transplants. 2. Increase the total number and racial diversity of the NMDP's volunteer donor file and provide HLA-DR typing on as many donors as possible in an effort to reduce patient search time and costs. 3. Perform HLA typing of the donor/recipient samples stored in the NMDP's research sample repository, and compare the detailed molecular typing results with patient outcome data to determine the correlation between post- transplant outcome and degree of HLA match.
