Autologous Stem Cell Collection and Reinfusion in Newly Diagnosed High Grade Gliomas

2016-11-30 15:45:28 | BioPortfolio


The investigators hypothesize that this study will show that sufficient lymphocyte stem cell can be harvested prior chemoradiation and be reinfused back after treatment, and at least 5 of the 10 patients (50%) will achieve an absolute increase of lymphocyte counts of 300 cells/mm^3 four weeks after stem cell reinfusion in high grade glioma patients.

Temozolomide, Carmustine, O6-Benzylguanine, Radiation Therapy, and an Autologous Stem Cell Transplant in Treating Patients With Newly Diagnosed Glioblastoma Multiforme or Gliosarcoma

RATIONALE: Giving chemotherapy and radiation therapy before a peripheral stem cell transplant stops the growth of cancer cells by stopping them from dividing or killing them. Giving colony...

Radiation Therapy, Chemotherapy, and Peripheral Stem Cell Transplantation in Treating Patients With Primitive Neuroectodermal Tumors

RATIONALE: Radiation therapy uses x-rays to damage tumor cells. Drugs used in chemotherapy use different ways to stop tumor cells from dividing so they stop growing or die. Peripheral stem...

Radiation Therapy in Treating Patients With Relapsed or Refractory Non-Hodgkin's Lymphoma Who Have Undergone Stem Cell Transplantation

RATIONALE: Radiation therapy uses high-energy x-rays to damage tumor cells. It is not yet known if giving radiation therapy after stem cell transplantation is more effective than stem cell...

Stem Cell Collection With Ofatumumab

The goal of this clinical research study is to learn if it is possible to collect stem cells after ofatumumab and chemotherapy treatment. This study will also evaluate side-effects, number...

Two Different Methods of Collecting Stem Cells For an Autologous Stem Cell Transplant in Treating Patients With Diffuse Large Cell Lymphoma

RATIONALE: It is not yet known which method of stem cell collection is best for patients undergoing an autologous stem cell transplant. PURPOSE: This randomized phase III trial is compari...

Current Indications, Techniques, and Imaging Findings of Stem Cell Treatment and Bone Marrow Transplant.

The role of stem cell therapy in the treatment of hematologic and nonhematologic conditions is ever increasing. A thorough knowledge of the applications of stem cells and transplant physiology is esse...

Lost in Translation: Preserving Satellite Cell Function with Global Translational Control.

Quiescence is highly regulated to preserve stem cell function. In this issue of Cell Stem Cell, Zismanov et al. (2016) show that P-eIF2α, a translational initiation factor, reinforces the quiescent ...

Enhanc(er)ing Skin Stem Cells.

In this issue of Cell Stem Cell, Rinaldi et al. (2016) find an unexpected role for the de novo DNA methyltransferases Dnmt3a and Dnmt3b in the regulation of enhancers. Their findings provide new insi...

To Serve and Protect: Hydrogels to Improve Stem Cell-Based Therapies.

Harsh environments within damaged and diseased tissues and limited retention and survival of injected stem cells pose major challenges for stem cell therapeutics today. Here, we discuss promising hydr...

Improving Stem Cell Therapeutics with Mechanobiology.

In recent years, it has become clear that mechanical cues play an integral role in maintaining stem cell functions. Here we discuss how integrating physical approaches and engineering principles in st...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Methods of implanting a CELL NUCLEUS from a donor cell into an enucleated acceptor cell. Often the nucleus of a somatic cell is transferred into a recipient OVUM or stem cell (STEM CELLS) with the nucleus removed. This technology may provide means to generate autologous diploid pluripotent cell for therapeutic cloning, and a model for studying NUCLEAR REPROGRAMMING in embryonic stem cells. Nuclear transfer was first accomplished with frog eggs (RANA PIPIENS) and reported in 1952.

The release of stem cells from the bone marrow into the peripheral blood circulation for the purpose of leukapheresis, prior to stem cell transplantation. Hematopoietic growth factors or chemotherapeutic agents often are used to stimulate the mobilization.

The malignant stem cells of TERATOCARCINOMAS, which resemble pluripotent stem cells of the BLASTOCYST INNER CELL MASS. The EC cells can be grown in vitro, and experimentally induced to differentiate. They are used as a model system for studying early embryonic cell differentiation.

Experimentation on STEM CELLS and on the use of stem cells.

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.
