Survey of cellular therapy and regenerative medicine in Europe - Patients Treated in 2015

Dear colleagues,


We continue to collect data to establish a comprehensive, quantitative map of patients being treated in Europe with cellular and engineered tissue therapies (i.e. any clinical treatment based on living cells excluding DLI, donor lymphocyte infusions, and hematopoietic stem cells for hematological reconstitution). The survey is supported by 5 international organisations, namely EBMT, ICRS, IFATS, ISCT and TERMIS.


Previous survey reports which include the number of treated patients, without any reference to clinical outcomes, information on specific cell types, processes and delivery modes in use as well as an appendix listing active teams together with the survey form and guidelines can be found on the TERMIS website, http://www.termis.org/chapters_eu_novel.php


If, in 2015, you treated patients in Europe with cellular or engineered tissue therapies and would like to see your name listed among the 150 or so participating teams, please complete the survey form (on the TERMIS website at the link above) and send it no later than April 30th 2016 to Helen Baldomero in the EBMT Activity Survey Office, either by Email: Helen.baldomero@usb.ch or by fax: +41 61 265 2735


We strive to make the results available to the scientific community much earlier than in past editions in order to combine the reports for patients treated in 2014 and 2015. We therefore kindly ask you to comply with the set deadline. Please do not forget to identify in the questionnaire to which of the 5 supporting societies, if any, you belong.


As always, if you know of any group that is performing such therapies please forward this message to them and encourage them to participate. This will help to have a much more effective impact on the scientific, clinical and regulatory aspects of this continually evolving sector of cellular and engineered tissue therapies.


Thank you and with our best regards
