Question 57: What was the primary indication for performing treatment with cellular therapy?

From the list provided, select the primary indication for which the recipient is receiving the cellular therapy.

If the indication is in the list below and the cell therapy is being given with HCT or post-HCT, no additional consent is required from the patient per CIBMTR. Please confirm with your local IRB:

  • GVHD prophylaxis (with HCT)
  • GVHD treatment (post-HCT)
  • Immune reconstitution (post-HCT)
  • Infection prophylaxis
  • Prevent disease relapse (post-HCT)
  • Suboptimal donor chimerism (post-HCT)

The Disease Classification (2402) Form will come due if the indication is reported as Malignant hematologic disorder, Non-malignant disorder, or Solid tumor. This allows CIBMTR to capture disease specific information for cellular therapy utilizing an existing form to maintain consistency in data collection.

If the recipient is receiving post-HCT cellular therapy (e.g., DCI) for relapsed, persistent, or progressive disease, the indication should be recorded as Malignant hematologic disorders and complete a new Disease Classification (2402) form for the disease that has relapsed / persisted / progressed. This will capture / confirm the diagnosis and reporting the disease status prior to the DCI.

Question 58: Date of diagnosis:

If the primary indication for the cellular therapy is cardiovascular disease, musculoskeletal disease, neurologic disease, ocular disease, pulmonary disease, infection treatment or other indication, report the diagnosis date of the primary indication. The diagnosis date for malignant hematologic disorder, non-malignant disorder or solid tumor will be captured on the Disease Classification (2402) form.

Report the date (YYYY-MM-DD) of the first pathological diagnosis (e.g., bone marrow or tissue biopsy) of the disease for which the patient is receiving cellular therapy. Enter the date the sample was collected for examination. If the indication is infection, report the date of diagnosis as the collection date for the first positive microbiology culture. If the diagnosis was determined at an outside center, and no documentation of a pathological or laboratory assessment is available, the dictated date of diagnosis within a physician note may be reported. Do not report the date symptoms first appeared.

If the recipient was diagnosed prenatally (in utero) or if the indication is a congenital disorder, report the date of birth as the date of diagnosis.

If the exact pathological diagnosis date is not known, use the process described in General Instructions, General Guidelines for Completing Forms.

Question 59-61: Specify cardiovascular disease:

If cardiovascular disease is the indication for cellular therapy, indicate the specific disease. If Other cardiovascular disease is selected, specify the other cardiovascular disease in question 60. If Other peripheral vascular disease is selected, specify the other peripheral vascular disease in question 61.

Report “induced cardiomyopathy” as Heart failure (non-ischemic etiology) (703).

Question 62-63: Specify musculoskeletal disorder:

If musculoskeletal disorder is the indication for cellular therapy, indicate the specific disorder. If Other musculoskeletal disorder is selected, specify the other musculoskeletal disorder in question 63.

Question 64-65: Specify neurologic disease:

If neurologic disease is the indication for cellular therapy, indicate the specific disease. If the specific disease is not explicitly listed, select the broad category for the primary indication for infusion.

If Other neurologic disease is selected, specify the other neurologic disease in question 65.

Question 66: Specify ocular disease:

If ocular disease is the indication for the cellular therapy, specify the ocular disease. Examples include treatment of glaucoma or photoreceptor degeneration

Question 67-68: Specify pulmonary disease:

If pulmonary disease is the indication for the cellular therapy, specify the pulmonary disease. If Other pulmonary disease is selected, specify the other pulmonary disease in question 68.

Question 69-75: Specify the organism for which the cellular therapy is being given to treat:

If infection treatment is the indication for the cellular therapy, indicate the organism(s) being treated in questions 69-75.

From Table 1 entitled “Codes for Commonly Reported Organisms”, select the code corresponding to the identified organism as indicated on the microbiology report, laboratory report, or other physician documentation. Report the code in the boxes provided on the form.

Fungal infections: Note the inclusion of Pneumocystis (formerly found under parasites). The most commonly found fungal infections are Candida (C. albicans), Aspergillus (A. fumigatus), and Fusarium sp.

Viral infections: Caused by exposure to a new virus or reactivation of a dormant virus already present in the body. The most common viral infections are due to HSV (Herpes Simplex Virus), and CMV (Cytomegalovirus). If the site of CMV is the lung, confirm whether the patient had interstitial pneumonitis rather than CMV pneumonia.
