HLA-haploidentical Hematopoietic Stem Cell Transplantation for Children and Adolescents With Acute Leukemia, Myelodysplastic Syndrome and Solid Tumors
RATIONALE: Conditioning with total body irradiation (TBI) and fludarabine, cyclophosphamide and anti-thymocyte globulin may induce the engraftment cross the immunologic barrier in the setting of HLA-haploidentical allogeneic hematopoietic cell transplantation. In addition, T-cell depletion may contribute to prevent developing severe acute graft versus host disease (GVHD) in haploidentical transplantation.
PURPOSE: This phase I/II trial is to evaluate the safety and efficacy of TBI, fludarabine, cyclophosphamide and antithymocyte globulin with T-cell depleted graft from haploidentical donors in treating patients with acute leukemia and myelodysplastic syndrome.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions
Irradiation of one half or both halves of the body in the treatment of disseminated cancer or widespread metastases. It is used to treat diffuse metastases in one session as opposed to multiple fields over an extended period. The more frequent treatment modalities are upper hemibody irradiation (UHBI) or lower hemibody irradiation (LHBI). Less common is mid-body irradiation (MBI). In the treatment of both halves of the body sequentially, hemibody irradiation permits radiotherapy of the whole body with larger doses of radiation than could be accomplished with WHOLE-BODY IRRADIATION. It is sometimes called "systemic" hemibody irradiation with reference to its use in widespread cancer or metastases. (P. Rubin et al. Cancer, Vol 55, p2210, 1985)
Irradiation of the whole body with ionizing or non-ionizing radiation. It is applicable to humans or animals but not to microorganisms.
Rho(d) Immune Globulin
Immunizing agent containing IMMUNOGLOBULIN G anti-Rho(D) used for preventing Rh immunization in Rh-negative individuals exposed to Rh-positive red blood cells.
The total amount of a chemical, metal or radioactive substance present at any time after absorption in the body of man or animal.
External or interstitial irradiation to treat lymphomas (e.g., Hodgkin's and non-Hodgkin's lymphomas) and lymph node metastases and also some autoimmune diseases, such as rheumatoid arthritis.
Phase I Pilot Study of Total-Body Irradiation, Anti-Thymocyte Globulin and Cyclophosphamide Followed By Syngeneic or Autologous Peripheral Blood Stem Cell Transplantation in Patients With Multiple Sclerosis
OBJECTIVES: I. Determine the toxicity of total-body irradiation, anti-thymocyte globulin, and cyclophosphamide followed by syngeneic or autologous peripheral blood stem cell (PBSC) transpl...
The study proposes the use of Fludarabine, Busulfan, Anti Thymocyte Globulin Rabbit (ATG) and Total Body Irradiation as a preparative regimen before hematopoietic stem cell transplant from...
RATIONALE: Giving chemotherapy and total body irradiation before a donor bone marrow transplant helps stop the growth of cancer and abnormal cells and helps stop the patient's immune syste...
RATIONALE: Giving chemotherapy and total-body irradiation before a donor umbilical cord blood stem cell transplant helps stop the growth of abnormal cells. It also helps stop the patient's...
RATIONALE: A peripheral stem cell transplant may be able to replace blood-forming cells that were destroyed by chemotherapy and radiation therapy, or that have become cancer. Sometimes the...
We previously reported that reduced intensity conditioning (RIC) regimen with fludarabine, BU and 2.5 mg/kg of rabbit anti-thymocyte globulin (r-ATG) was effective but associated with a high rate of...
In reduced intensity, allogeneic stem cell transplantation from unrelated donors (u-RIST), graft-versus-host disease (GVHD), graft failure, and non-relapse mortality (NRM) are persistent problems. Alt...
We report two patients with chronic granulomatous disease (CGD). The first patient presented with granulomatous colitis and pulmonary aspergillosis, and the second patient with liver abscess and restr...
Rabbit anti-thymocyte globulin (Thymoglobulin) effectively treats transplant rejection but induces anti-rabbit Ab responses, which limits routine readministration. Aiming to tolerize anti-rabbit respo...
