Indications Table


BSBMTCT Indications for Adult BMT

David Marks (chair), Jenny Byrne, Charlie Craddock, Steve Devereux, Judith Marsh, Ghulam Mufti, Tony Pagliuca, Steve Robinson, John Reilly, John Snowden, Linda Evans, and Nigel Russell.

The aim was to provide an up to date indications table for transplanters, referring haematologists and purchasers recognising that the EBMT table is out of date and may not apply to UK practice. Several rarer diseases are not covered but will be added subsequently.

Members of the committee worked in their specific areas of expertise but all members had an opportunity to review and comment on the final table. This table will require updating regularly. Comments are welcomed.

The BSBMT executive has agreed that members of the indications table committee will form a ‘virtual’ Adjudication Committee. Where there are disputes about funding or the indication is not listed in the table this group will provide rapid access to impartial expert advice about whether a proposed transplant procedure is appropriate and in keeping with mainstream UK practice. Transplant physicians are asked to contact the chair of the committee at:
