    • Does not include: Other types of twins or HLA-identical siblings (see below).
  • HLA-identical sibling:
    • Includes: Non-monozygotic (dizygotic, fraternal, non-identical) twins. Occurs when two eggs are fertilized by two different sperm cells at the same time. This category also includes siblings who aren’t twins, but have identical HLA types. The patient and donor will be allele-level matched at HLA-A, B, C, and DRB-1.
    • Does not include: Half-siblings (report as “HLA matched other relatives” if their HLA is a match, or “mismatched relative” if it does not match).
  • HLA-matched other relative:
    • Includes: All blood-related relatives, other than siblings, who are HLA matched (e.g., parents, aunts, uncles, children, cousins, half-siblings). The patient and donor will be allele-level matched at HLA-A, B, C, and DRB1.
    • Does not include: Adoptive parents/children or stepparents/children who are HLA matched.
  • HLA-mismatched relative:
    • Includes: Siblings who are not HLA-identical and all other blood-related relatives who have at least one HLA mismatch (e.g., parents, aunts, uncles, children, cousins, half-siblings). This includes haploidentical donors. The patient and donor will be allele-level mismatched at one or more loci (HLA-A, B, C, or DRB1).

  • Creatinine clearance or serum creatinine must not have worsened by ≥ 25% over baseline
    If only serum creatinine is obtained, an estimated creatinine clearance can be calculated using the following formula:
    Estimated Creatinine Clearance = [(140 – Age (years)) * Weight (kg)] / [72 * Serum Creatinine (mg/dL)]
    The calculation should be multiplied by 0.85 for women.

February 2019

Date Manual Section Add/Remove/Modify Description
2/27/19 2116: PCD Post-HCT Add Added (in red below) additional instruction for question 61:
However, bisphosphonate therapy (e.g., Zometa) should not be reported as planned therapy since it is universally administered to myeloma patients. Additionally, supportive care such as Denosumab (e.g., Prolia) should not be reported as planned therapy.
2/27/19 2402: Disease Classification Add Added (in red below) additional instruction for question 277:
Question 277: Was a PET (or combination PET / CT) scan performed? (at last evaluation prior to the start of the preparative regimen / infusion)
Report “Yes” and go to question 278 if a PET scan was performed within three months prior to the start of the preparative regimen / infusion. Combination PET / CT may also be reported, but a CT scan alone should not be captured here. Centers may report a PET scan performed during the most recent line of therapy so long as it is the most recent scan and was done within noted period. Report “No” and go to question 283 if a PET scan was not performed within this period.
2/27/19 Appendix J: Reporting Comorbidities Remove Removed (struck out below) incorrect instruction for reporting Cerebrovascular disease comorbidities:
Any history of:
  • Trasient ischemic attack
  • Cerebrovascular accident / stroke
  • Subarachnoid, hemoorhage: do not include subdural, epidural, or intraparenchymal hemorrhage
2/27/19 2402: Disease Classification Add Added (in red below) additional instruction for question 165:
Indicate the number of times the recipient has been in the disease phase reported in question 163.
2/27/19 2006: Hematopoietic Stem Cell Transplant (HCT) Infusion Add Added additional instruction (in red below) regarding T-Cell depletion under questions 73-95:
T-Cell depletion: T-cell depletion removes some or all of the T cells in an effort to minimize GVHD. Methods of T-cell depletion include antibody affinity column, antibody-coated plates, antibody-coated plates and soybean lectin, antibody + toxin, immunomagnetic beads, CD34 affinity column plus sheep red blood cell resetting, and T-cell receptor alpha / beta depletion.
2/27/19 2400: Pre-TED Modify Modified (removed text is struck out below, updated text is in red) the instructions for question 52 on where to report cellular therapy product data for products that are not intended to achieve hematopoietic engraftment.
If infusions of additional cells (not intended to produce engraftment) were given prior to the HCT being reported (i.e., prior to clinical day 0), the cells must be reported as a product on the Pre-TED Form (Form 2400, question 51) and on a separate Cellular Therapy Infusion Product Form (Form 4006 4003). If the additional cells were infused post-HCT, for any reason other than a subsequent HCT, they should be reported as a DCI on the appropriate follow-up form. Reporting the additional cells (given pre-HCT and not intended to produce engraftment) on the Form 4006 4003 is the only mechanism the CIBMTR has in place to collect this data and ensure that the quality assurance data is reported to cord blood banks, if applicable.
2/27/19 2556: Myelofibrosis Pre-HCT Data and 2557: Myelofibrosis Post-HCT Data Remove Removed text referencing the CMS study for Myelofibrosis. The 2556 and 2557 are required for all patients with Myelofibrosis, not just patients enrolled in the CMS study. The titles of the forms have already been changed to remove CMS study from the title.
2/1/2019 Cellular Therapy Manuals Modify Added clarification (in red below):
What cellular therapies to report and when:
  1. Cellular therapy given in context of HCT (e.g. co-infusion, DLI/DCI): When a cellular therapy is given in context of a transplant, such as a co-infusion with an HCT or a DLI/DCI post-HCT, these infusions need to be reported to the CIBMTR. This includes both autologous and allogeneic products, such as cell stored prior to an allogeneic HCT used for treatment of graft failure.
  2. Cellular therapy given with a prior HCT (e.g. CAR T-cell therapy for treatment of relapse): When a cellular therapy (e.g. CAR T-cell therapy) is given and there is a prior HCT, reporting these infusions are voluntary at this time.
  3. Stand-alone cellular therapy (no prior HCT) (e.g. CAR T-cells): reporting these infusions are voluntary at this time*.
    *Reporting of commercial products infusions (i.e. Kymriah, Yescarta) is strongly encouraged.

January 2019

Date Manual Section Add/Remove/Modify Description
1/25/2019 4003: Cellular Therapy Product Modify Version 2 of the 4003: Cellular Therapy Product section of the Forms Instruction Manual released. Version 2 corresponds to revision 2 of the Form 4003.
1/25/2019 2900: Recipient Death Modify Version 3 of the 2900: Recipient Death section of the Forms Instructions Manual released. Version 3 corresponds to revision 4 of the Form 2900.
1/25/2019 2018: LYM Pre-Infusion Modify Version 4 of the 2018: Lymphoma Pre-Infusion Data section of the Forms Instruction Manual released. Version 4 corresponds to revision 5 of the Form 2018.
1/24/2019 4100: Cellular Therapy Essential Data Follow-up Modify Added examples (in red below) in question 33 on when to use “previously reported” option:
If a new malignancy is reported, please complete the Subsequent Neoplasms Form 3500 to answer questions specific to the new malignancy. The option of ‘Previously reported’ should only be used if the same new malignancy instance has already been reported on a F3500. See examples below. If there is a question regarding use of this option, please contact your CIBMTR CRC.
Example 1. Recipient develops a new malignancy at day +68. It is reported at the time the 100-day form 4100 is completed. Question 33 should be answered as ‘yes’ and the form 3500 should be completed to report all new malignancy information.
Example 2. Recipient develops a new malignancy at day +68 and had received a commercial CAR-T product. Per protocol, the new malignancy should be reported at the time of knowledge of the new malignancy. The form 3500 should be created as an unscheduled form in FormsNet3 and completed in a timely manner. No other new malignancy develops during the 100-day reporting period. When the 100-day form 4100 is completed, question 33 should be answered as ‘previously reported’.
Example 3. Recipient develops a new malignancy at day +68 and had received a commercial CAR-T product. Per protocol, the new malignancy should be reported at the time of knowledge of the new malignancy. The form 3500 should be created as an unscheduled form in FormsNet3 and completed in a timely manner. Another new malignancy develops at day +100. It is decided to report the 2nd new malignancy on the 100-day form 4100 since it is due. Question 33 should be answered as ‘yes’ to create another form 3500.
1/17/2019 4100: Cellular Therapy Essential Data Follow-Up Modify Added (in red below) clarification on how hypogammaglobulinemia is documented:
Report the date (YYYY-MM-DD) in question 126 when the hypogammaglobulinemia was documented by either a physician/health care provider or determined by lab results. If the hypogammaglobulinemia continues from a prior reporting period, report the original diagnosis date as the onset date and override the error.
Example 1. The recipient developed hypogammaglobulinemia at day +22 which was reported on the 4100 day 100 form. The lab results continue to show IgG levels < 600 mg/dl during the 6 month reporting period. Report the original diagnosis date on the 4100 6 month form and override the error.
1/17/2019 4000: Cellular Therapy Essential Data Pre-Infusion Remove Removed the following blue note box instruction (struck out below) for questions 250 to 252 functional status. Functional status should be reported for every indication.
These questions are for malignant disease indications or relapsed, persistent, or progressive disease only.
