Phase I Study of Sequential Cord Blood Transplants
The purpose of this study is to determine the safety of sequential cord blood transplantation (2 cord blood units) for patients who have diseases that are capable of being cured by allogeneic stem cell transplant but do not have a matched family or volunteer unrelated donor.
Eligible patients will receive conditioning therapy with fludarabine 30 mg/m2/day x 6 days, melphalan 100 mg/m2/day x 1 day, rabbit antithymocyte globulin 1.5 mg/kg/day x 4 days. GVHD prophylaxis will consist of cyclosporine starting on day -1 and mycophenolate mofetil starting on day 0. Sequential cord blood units will be infused on Day 0.
Allocation: Non-Randomized, Control: Historical Control, Endpoint Classification: Safety/Efficacy Study, Intervention Model: Single Group Assignment, Masking: Open Label, Primary Purpose: Treatment

Transplantation of STEM CELLS collected from the fetal blood remaining in the UMBILICAL CORD and the PLACENTA after delivery. Included are the HEMATOPOIETIC STEM CELLS.
Blood of the fetus. Exchange of nutrients and waste between the fetal and maternal blood occurs via the PLACENTA. The cord blood is blood contained in the umbilical vessels (UMBILICAL CORD) at the time of delivery.
Transfer of HEMATOPOIETIC STEM CELLS from BONE MARROW or BLOOD between individuals within the same species (TRANSPLANTATION, HOMOLOGOUS) or transfer within the same individual (TRANSPLANTATION, AUTOLOGOUS). Hematopoietic stem cell transplantation has been used as an alternative to BONE MARROW TRANSPLANTATION in the treatment of a variety of neoplasms.
Transplantation of stem cells collected from the peripheral blood. It is a less invasive alternative to direct marrow harvesting of hematopoietic stem cells. Enrichment of stem cells in peripheral blood can be achieved by inducing mobilization of stem cells from the BONE MARROW.
Preparative treatment of transplant recipient with various conditioning regimens including radiation, immune sera, chemotherapy, and/or immunosuppressive agents, prior to transplantation. Transplantation conditioning is very common before bone marrow transplantation.
RATIONALE: Umbilical cord blood transplantation may be able to replace immune cells that were destroyed by the chemotherapy or radiation therapy that was used to kill cancer cells. PURPOS...
Umbilical cord blood is used as a source of hematopoietic stem cells for bone marrow reconstition in patients who would be potential candidates for a bone marrow transplant from an unrelat...
The purpose of this study is to determine if the administration of parathyroid hormone after a sequential dual umbilical cord blood transplant can improve the time to engraftment.
The objective of this trial is to assess the toxicity of thymus transplantation following unrelated umbilical cord blood transplantation. Emphasis will be placed on adverse events that ar...
The National Marrow Donor Program (NMDP) has established a system for registering, matching, and tracking unrelated donor cord blood units (CBUs) and transplant outcomes. Study subjects a...
In Korea, cord blood banking projects have been developed since 1996, and the 1st successful cord blood transplant was performed in 1998. Recently, "Cord Blood Management and Research Act" was legisla...
To determine whether a difference in donor source affects the outcome of transplantation for patients with primary myelofibrosis (PMF), a retrospective study was conducted using the national registry...
The transplantation of human umbilical cord blood cells (hUCBCs) has been shown to attenuate the unregulated activation of microglia in a rat model of cerebral palsy (CP). To investigate whether hUCBC...
Lymphomatosis cerebri (LC) is a rare form of primary central nervous system lymphoma (PCNSL). Little is known about cases of LC with spinal cord involvement. Among the 11 PCNSL patients treated in our...
