Temperature, Heart and Respiratory Rate Investigation Along With Variability Evaluation and Serum Biomarkers (THRRIVES)

The purpose of this study is to find a way of detecting infection earlier in patients receiving bone marrow transplant. This is accomplished by continuous individualized monitoring of heart rate, respiratory rate and temperature variability in this patient population. The investigators are collecting data to determine whether or not subtle differences in heart rate, respiratory rate and temperature will help physicians to detect infection earlier in order to begin faster treat...

Brentuximab Vedotin (SGN-35) in Transplant Eligible Patients With Relapsed or Refractory Hodgkin Lymphoma

The purpose of this study is determine if 2 cycles of SGN-35 can be used instead of ICE prior to autologous stem cell transplant (ASCT) for relapsed and refractory HL. There are 2 steps to treating patients with relapsed or refractory HL. The first step is to shrink the lymphoma with chemotherapy. The chemotherapy regimen commonly used is called ICE. ICE is a combination of chemotherapy drugs: ifosfamide, carboplatin, and etoposide. The second step of treatment is to give high ...

Immunotherapy Following Reduced Intensity Conditioning and Allogeneic Stem Cell Transplant for Poor Risk CD30+ Hodgkin Lymphoma Patients

Patients with relapsed or refractory Hodgkin Lymphoma who are CD30+ will receive a standard of care reduced intensity regimen and an allogeneic stem cell transplant (from another person, related or unrelated). Following recovery, patients will receive a medication called Brentuximab Vendotin which is targeted against CD30+ cells. The study hypothesis is that this treatment will be safe and well tolerated in children and young adults.

Rheumatoid Arthritis:Tolerance Induction by Mixed Chimerism

Rheumatoid arthritis disease is believed to be due to immune cells, cells that normally protect the body and are now causing damage to the body. Risk of death is highest in people with twenty or more joints actively involved with disease, positive rheumatoid factor, an elevated sedimentation rate (laboratory measures of active inflammation), and patients with limitation of daily activities (trouble doing simple things like opening a carton of milk). In these high risk patients...

Hematopoietic Stem Cell Support in Vasculitis

The systemic vasculitis is a wide-ranging group of diseases that are characterized by the presence of blood vessel inflammation (1). Despite this common feature, each type of vasculitis has a unique variety of clinical manifestations that influences its degree of disease severity and ultimately its management. Immunosuppressive therapy forms the foundation of treatment for almost all forms of systemic vasculitis. The systemic necrotizing vasculitis (SNV) are a subset of vasc...

The influence of the two prevention concepts on the occurrence of direct and indire ct effects of active CMV infections will be compared. The anticipated time on st udy treatment is 3 months-1 year, and the target sample size is 100-500 indivi...

Evaluation of Sickle Cell Liver Disease

Background: - Sickle cell disease changes the shape of red cells. This makes them more likely to break down as they get stuck in small blood vessels. This leads to low red cell count and also damage to small blood vessels that supply many organs. One of the affected organs is the liver. Sickle cell disease and its treatment through blood transfusion can lead to significant liver damage. This disease also can cause the liver to regrow abnormally after damage. This can cau...

Vaginal Flora for Treatment of Bacterial Vaginosis

Bacterial vaginosis (BV) is the most common vaginal infection in women. It is caused by a vaginal bacterial imbalance. Treatment with antibiotics is the standard of care but there is a high rate of recurrence. Almost half of women successfully treated suffer a recurrence within three months. Complications include risk factors for premature birth, increased transmission of sexually transmitted diseases and higher risk for carcinoma of cervix. The investigators proposed study is...

Autologous CD19-specific T Cells Infusion

The goal of this clinical research study is to learn if an investigational type of gene transfer can be given reliably and safely in patients with advanced B-cell lymphoma. B cells are a type of white blood cell that fights infection and disease. Lymphoma is a type of cancer that affects the immune system, including B cells. The gene transfer involves drawing blood, separating out T cells (white blood cells that fight infection and disease), changing the T cells' DNA (genetic ...

Rituxan + BEAM and Auto Stem Cell Transplant for High Risk Lymphoma or Hodgkin's Disease

High-dose chemotherapy followed by autologous (the patient's own) peripheral blood (circulating blood) stem cell (cells that divide to form white cells, red cells and cells that help clot) transplantation is a conventional treatment for patients with lymphoma (cancer of lymph glands) and Hodgkin's disease (cancer of lymph glands) after first relapse (recurrence of disease). For patients who did not have a complete response after traditional chemotherapy, the chance is...

Transplants With Unlicensed Preserved Cord Blood

Background: - Cord blood transplants can treat cancers and other diseases in children and adults. The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) requires cord blood to be collected and stored under certain safety standards. However, most available cord blood units were collected before the FDA set these standards. These units may not meet FDA standards, but they do meet similar standards set and followed by the National Marrow Donor Program (NMDP). Cord blood units that do ...

Ultra-Low Dose IL-2 Therapy as GVHD Prophylaxis in Haploidentical Allogeneic Stem Cell Transplantation

Background: - Stem cell transplantation from a partially matched donor can lead to graft-versus-host disease (GVHD). Researchers want to learn how to improve these transplantations. Objective: - To see if very low doses of Interleukin-2 after a partially matched transplantation prevent GVHD. Eligibility: - Recipients: age 18 65, with certain bone marrow or lymphatic system diseases and an available family member with partial tissue match. ...

Efficacy of Collagen-elastin Dermal Substitute in the Treatment of Loss of Cutaneous Substances With Skin Grafts

In reconstructive surgery , most losses of cutaneous substance require the use of a thin skin graft . This technique allows epidermization of the defect by applying a thin layer of autologous epidermis. It does not reconstitute the injured skin. Transplants cause retractile scars, adherent to the deep plan, that may require revision surgery . Since a decade , dermal matrices are mainly used in burned skin centers . The collagen -elastin matrix has the advantage to set up in the...

Evaluation Study of Brentuximab Vedotin in Pre-transplant Induction and Consolidation for Relapsed or Refractory HL

Most patients suffering from Hodgkin's lymphoma (HL) can be successfully treated with standard chemo- and/or radiotherapy. However, in patients with refractory disease/relapsing after first line of therapy, conventional-dose chemotherapy regimens induce low remission rates, with long-term disease free survival not higher than 10% of patients. High-dose chemotherapy followed by autologous stem cell transplantation (ASCT) has become the standard treatment for these patients. Thi...

PRevention Of BLeeding in hEmatological Malignancies w/ Antifibrinolytic Agents

STUDY BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE: Patients with hematological malignancies (blood-related cancers) often develop thrombocytopenia (low platelet count), which can be made worse by cancer treatment. Preventive (prophylactic) platelet transfusion remains the standard of care for thrombocytopenic patients. However, bleeding remains a significant problem in these patients, affecting approximately 20% of patients with acute myeloid leukemia and 34-58% of hematopoietic stem cell t...

Mismatched Donor Lymphocyte Infusions for Relapsed Disease Following Allogeneic Stem Cell Transplantation

Patients receiving allogeneic stem cell transplantation for hematological malignancies who suffer a relapse of their disease post-transplant have limited treatment options and a poor prognosis. With the exception of patients with chronic leukemias who may achieve prolonged remissions after donor lymphocyte infusions (DLIs), treatments using either chemotherapy or a DLI achieve less than a 10% median survival beyond 6 months. Most of these patients die of progressive leukemia, u...

Melphalan and Amifostine Followed By One or Two Autologous or Syngeneic Stem Cell Transplants and Maintenance Therapy in Treating Patients With Stage II-III Multiple Myeloma

RATIONALE: Giving chemotherapy drugs, such as melphalan, work in different ways to stop the growth of cancer cells, either by killing the cells or by stopping them from dividing. Chemoprotective drugs, such as amifostine, may protect normal cells from the side effects of chemotherapy. Giving chemotherapy with a peripheral stem cell transplant once or twice, using stem cells from the patient or an identical brother or sister, may allow more chemotherapy to be given so more cance...

Monitoring Natural Killer Cells in Multiple Sclerosis Patients Treated With Fingolimod

Data on fingolimod effects on NK cells are so far conflicting. A longitudinal study on fingolimod treated kidney transplant patients showed that NK cells were not influenced in any of the treatment groups. However, more recent reports indicate an increased frequency of NK cells in peripheral blood and CSF of MS patients treated with fingolimod and a relative reduction of immature CD56bright NK cells in fingolimod-treated MS patients. It has been demonstrated that the expression...

Safety Study of Gene Modified Donor T-cells Following TCR Alpha Beta Depleted Stem Cell Transplant

This study will evaluate pediatric patients with malignant or non-malignant blood cell disorders who are having a blood stem cell transplant depleted of T cell receptor (TCR) alfa and beta cells that comes from a partially matched family donor. The study will assess whether immune cells, called T cells, from the family donor, that are specially grown in the laboratory and given back to the patient along with the stem cell transplant can help the immune system recover faster af...
