The Blood & Marrow Transplant Information Network (BMT) formerly BMT Newsletter, is a non-profit organization established in 1990. It provides patient-friendly handbooks and a quarterly newsletter about bone marrow/peripheral stem cell and cord blood transplantation (BMT/PSCT). This is a medical procedure that may be used to treat certain diseases such as cancer, aplastic anemia, immune deficiency diseases, inborn errors of metabolism, and some brain tumors. Readership includes BMT/PSCT patients and survivors, their families and friends, patient support and information groups, medical personnel at BMT cancer centers, and insurance review personnel who handle such cases. BMT InfoNet links patients with survivors who can provide emotional support, maintains an online Directory of Transplant Centers in the US and Canada, an online Directory of Drugs used during transplant, and an online Resource Directory.
