Stem Cell Registry
The Finnish Stem Cell Registry recruits healthy voluntary stem cell donors for the Registry. Its close partners are the clinics of Helsinki and Turku University Central Hospitals in Finland and the Tartu Transplantation Center in Estonia. As no country is self-sufficient in terms of donors, graft deliveries require international collaboration. The Finnish Stem Cell Registry has a vast international network.
The Finnish Stem Cell Registry searches for compatible donors for patients in need of a stem cell transplantation in registers in Finland and other countries, arranges a health check-up for the chosen donor, and organises the graft collection and delivery to the hospital performing the transplantation.
Over the year 4,005 new members joined the Stem Cell Registry, bringing the number to 65,000. We supplied 110 grafts to patients, 79 to patients in Finland and 31 to patients treated in transplant centres abroad. Our couriers delivered 36 grafts to transplant centres.
