Fifteen treatment centers for haemophilia in northwestern Germany are conducting a multi-center study for monitoring and documenting the ambulatory treatment of this severe bleeding disorder. The data from this study are col1ected in a hierarchical data base under the data base management system IMS and retrieved using a descriptive query language. The DBMS proves to be a valuable tool to support such a study. The design of and the requirements for specialized DBMS for statistical studies are investigated.
