Use of Existing Fibroblast Cells to Convert to Induced Pluripotent Stem Cells

Induced pluripotent stem cells potentially may be useful in the future as an unlimited source of cells for transplantation. The major goal of the project is to develop human iPS cells from existing lines of fibroblasts that were originally donated as clinical grade feeders for the development of clinical grade hESCs. The clinical grade feeders were developed from aborted fetuses, foreskin and umbilical cord.

Study of Decitabine Alone or in Combination With Valproic Acid and All-trans Retinoic Acid in Acute Myeloid Leukemia

AML of the older patient constitutes a major unmet clinical need since the large majority will not be found eligible for induction chemotherapy. Reasons for this decision include host factors (comorbidities, reduced performance status, functional limitations due to age), leading to often poor tolerance of repeated chemotherapy courses and the unfavorable biology underlying this disease in older patients. Low dose Decitabine has shown very promising efficacy in high-risk MDS and...

Randomized Comparison Angioplasty Outcomes at Hospitals With and Without On-site Cardiac Surgery

Angioplasty is a procedure which opens blocked heart arteries using balloons and/or stents. Most U.S. states and all national heart organizations require that angioplasty be done only at hospitals that can also perform open heart surgery. The reason for this is that there is a risk that angioplasty can cause injury to the heart artery that might require open heart surgery to fix. Open heart surgery is a backup in case it is needed. The risk that open heart surgery will be need...

Open-label Study to Evaluate Safety of Multiple Courses of IM Alefacept During Treatment of Chronic Plaque Psoriasis

An extension study to evaluate safety and tolerability of up to 3 additional courses of IM alefacept in patients with chronic plaque psoriasis who have been previously treated with 1 or 2 courses of IM alefacept.
