Cellular and Engineered Tissue Therapies Survey
Have you treated patients in 2013 with cellular or engineered tissue therapies (i.e., any clinical treatment based on living cells excluding DLI, donor lymphocyte infusions, and hematopiietic stem cells for hematilogical reconstitution)?
If so please complete the simple survey form (pdf or excel format) and send it to Helen Baldomero as soon as possible by E mail: Helen.firstname.lastname@example.org or by fax: + 41 61 265 2735 and help have an effective impact on the scientific, clinical and regulatory aspects of cellular tissue therapy.
Background to the survey
In 2008, 5 societies joined forces to establish a survey on "novel cellular therapies":
- the Tissue Engineering & Regenerative Medicine Society, European Chapter (TERMIS-EU),
- the International Society of Cellular Therapy, European Section (ISCT-Europe),
- the International Cartilage Repair Society, European Section (ICRS),
- the European group for Blood and Marrow Transplantation (EBMT) and
- the European League Against Rheumatism (EULAR).
The survey is designed to establish a comprehensive, quantitative map of patients being treated in Europe with cellular and engineered tissue therapies and also integrates the original EBMT activity survey capturing hematopoietic stem cells transplants in Europe. The report includes the number of treated patients, without any reference to their clinical outcome, information on specific cells types, processes and delivery modes in use.
A yearly publication presents the data, summarizes the trends and lists in the appendix the names of the participating teams.
If you know of any team that is performing such therapies please forward this webpage to them and encourage them to participate.
Need help to complete the form?
The guidelines for reporting data (updated) indicate what information is needed in each part of the form. Please read them carefully before completing the survey.
If you want to submit the form electronically, please save the file to your desktop and remember to save it again after completing the data fields. It will help us if you name the file NCT Survey 2013 and then add the name of your institution at the end of the file name. Attach the form to an email and send it to email@example.com.
Thank you for contributing to the success of this program and to a more transparent development of the field!
