The HLA Registry
From its inception, the mission of The HLA Registry has been to help patients with leukemia, aplastic anemia and other potentially fatal blood diseases in their searches to find unrelated, compatible donors. Thanks to the combined efforts of The HLA Registry and many caring people, the registry is responsible for registering more than 200,000 potential donors in its data base and for more than 600 bone marrow and stem cell transplants.

Our Mission is to help miracles happen.

The HLA Registry at Community Blood Services
Headquartered in Oradell, New Jersey, the Registry assists patients with potentially fatal blood diseases, such as leukemia and aplastic anemia, in finding compatible unrelated donors for life-saving bone marrow transplants.

The HLA Registry is one of the world's leading independent bone marrow donor registries. A member of the National Marrow Donor Program (NMDP), a network of 100 donor centers throughout the United States, it is the largest non-governmental donor center in the United States and has more than 200,000 potential donors registered in the NMDP’s data base. The HLA Registry actively recruits donors from all over the United States and, in particular, from the northeastern region of the country. Donors with diverse racial and ethnic backgrounds are especially needed.

The HLA Registry has helped hundreds of families to search for donors, and its successful matches of patients with donors have resulted in more than 1,000 transplants since The HLA Registry’s inception.
