Nonprofit Overview

Causes: Health, Organ & Tissue Banks

Mission: Saving lives with cellular transplantation through science, service and support.

Programs: In 1987, the founders of national marrow donor program ("nmdp") made a commitment to increase access to transplants and to find people willing to donate and support research to extend and improve lives. Nmdp's mission statement - "saving lives through cellular transplantation - science, service and support" - captures and communicates the reason for nmdp's existence. Each year, the nmdp incurs program medical expenses related to matching unrelated donors with patients. In fiscal year 2014, more than 16,000 u. S. And international searches of the be the match registry were conducted on behalf of patients seeking a matching donor or cord blood unit. See schedule oapproximately 6,300 patients went on to receive a transplant. Since beginning operations, the nmdp has facilitated more than 68,000 marrow and cord blood transplants for patients who do not have a matching donor in their family.

the be the match registry provides the most diverse listing of potential donors and cord blood units in the world. With more than 12. 5 million potential donors and nearly 209,000 cord blood units, our growing registry is helping more patients than ever before get the transplant they need. In the united states, on average, 45,500 new potential donors join the registry each month, with more than 546,000 new potential donors joining in 2014.

the national marrow donor program (nmdp) conducts research through the cibmtr (center for international blood and marrow transplant research), a combined research program of the nmdp and the medical college of wisconsin. The cibmtr facilitates critical, cutting-edge research that has led to increased survival and an enriched quality of life for thousands of patients worldwide. The cibmtr is the research arm of the nmdp. Nmdp facilitates extensive research and scientific services for improving outcomes through clinical research. See schedule o. This work includes establishing and maintaining an extensive database for researchers, conducting observational studies, and planning and facilitating clinical trials that assess trends and therapies. During fiscal year 2014 approximately $32. 3 million was used to fund research programs to improve the marrow donation process and advance transplant science.

nmdp works with patient families, faith communities, corporations, colleges and universities, and other organizations to raise awareness about the opportunity to give patients hope by joining the registry, making a gift through be the match foundation ("btmf"), and volunteering. In addition, the nmdp is a leader in providing health care professionals with the education, resources and services they need to provide the best care for transplant patients.

The SEC accused Krishnan of at least 20 securities act violations during that period, including making false and misleading representations in Digi's public 10-K and 10-Q filings by vouching for the effectiveness of the company's internal controls and denying knowledge of fraud. http://www.startribune.com/business/171846361.html?refer=y
