Patient Survival Information for this Center

University of Miami - Adults


This center's actual 1-year survival results are similar to the expected rate for this center.

The survival information we have for this center includes ONLY:

  1. Patients who had their FIRST ALLOGENEIC transplant (cells from a related or unrelated donor/cord blood) during 2010, 2011 and 2012, and
  2. Who had their transplant at a U.S. transplant center, and
  3. Who had follow-up information provided by the transplant center for analysis

For this center, we have survival information for 81 patients.

The actual 1-year survival of these patients is 70.0%.

Compared to similar patients transplanted at all centers in the U.S., we expect that the 1-year survival for patients at this center to be in a range between 57.8% and 77.4%.

Survival by Patient's Age, Disease Type and Stage after Related Donor Transplantation

This report is based on first allogeneic transplants performed between January 2009 and December 2011 using related donors. It only includes patients with known survival status at 1-year post-transplant. In some cases, patients may have been alive at last reported follow-up that was less than one year. Those patients have not been included in this report. The first number represents the number of patients alive at one year post transplant. The second number is a total number of transplanted patients in that particular group.
