Patients enrolled on CIBMTR studies for indications under CED will sign a separate CMS consent form under the Research Database Protocol for participation in a CMS CED-approved study. These patients will be invited to participate in both the CMS CED study and the Research Database protocol. Patient participation in the CMS CED study is not dependent on their participation in the Research Database Protocol. Additional protocol or consent forms are not required for this study.
The Research Database protocol, CMS consent form, and CIBMTR/NMDP IRB approvals, can be found on the Observational Database and Protocol and Consent Forms page.
