Table 5

Time frame of donor searches run from 1.1.2010 to 31.8.2012 for transplanted patients with different search probability estimates.

(1)For 98/99 high probability searches a 10/10 matched donor could be identified with a mean duration of 56 days (20–208), a transplant date was not (yet) available for 18 patients, 5 patients declined transplantation, 6 patients died, 1 relapsed, 1 was transplanted abroad, 1 was transplanted with a haplo-identical donor.
