 SCTOD Requirements

​The Stem Cell Therapeutic and Research Act of 2005 requires U.S. transplant centers to submit outcomes data on all allogeneic transplants, both related and unrelated, when either the donor or the recipient resides in the United States, or if the collection or infusion takes place in a U.S. center. The contract to manage this outcomes database, named the Stem Cell Therapeutic Outcomes Database (SCTOD), was awarded to CIBMTR in 2006.

SCTOD reporting requirements

SCTOD reporting requirements vary depending on a center’s location, the origin of the transplanted graft and the type of transplant performed:
Recipient data are considered part of the SCTOD if they meet one of the following criteria:
  • Allogeneic transplant occurs at a United States transplant center
  • Stem cell collection is performed within the United States
  • Cord blood unit is obtained from a cord blood bank within the United States
Recipient data are not considered part of the SCTOD if they meet one of the following criteria:
  • Recipient receives an autologous transplant
  • Transplant does not occur in the United States and the stem cells are collected outside of the United States
  • Cord blood unit is obtained from a cord blood bank outside of the United States and the transplant occurs outside of the United States

Implementation of SCTOD

Two important initiatives undertaken by CIBMTR to help transplant centers meet SCTOD data collection and submission requirements include:
  • FormsNet™ 2 - An electronic data collection application
  • AGNIS® - An automated system to electronically exchange data between transplant center databases and FormsNet
