Recording date: April 7, 2022


When selecting an optimal graft source for a patient, DPB1 matching is an important piece of the puzzle. This webinar highlights the clinical relevance of two models—DPB1 TCE groups and DPB1 expression levels—and the impact of DPB1 matching on transplant outcomes.

You will see case examples that demonstrate how these evidence-based selection recommendations are applied in MatchSource®, including how to avoid filtering out good donors when using DPB1 filters.

Learning Objectives

During this webinar, you will gain a better understanding of how to:

  • Recognize the impact of DPB1 matching on transplant outcomes
  • Practice selection of adult unrelated donors for HCT using evidence-based research
  • Use filters in MatchSource to refine the donor search results based on the National Marrow Donor Program (NMDP)/Be The Match and CIBMTR® (Center for International Blood & Marrow Transplant Research®) Selection Guidelines
