The Asia-Pacific Blood and Marrow Transplantation Group (APBMT) was initiated in 1990. We are involved in hematological stem cell transplantation, cell therapy, and related therapies, sharing their information and cooperating with basic and clinical research in the Asia-Pacific region. In 2000, APBMT planned to have a transplantation-case registry system as a symbol of the group’s unity and initiated APBMT Registry (consisting of annual Activity Survey and annual Outcome Registration) in 2006. Since then, we have performed the yearly activity survey 16 times, and you can see their results through our website. In 2009, APBMT became one of the Worldwide Network for Blood and Marrow Transplantation (WBMT) founding members. As of August 2019, APBMT comprises 22 countries/regions and is expanding its activities through the Annual Congresses, Activity Survey / Outcome Registry, and the official journal (Blood Cell Therapy).
