Hematopoietic Stem Cell Transplant for Sickle Cell Disease

This is a phase I/II study of patients with sickle cell disease. It aims to find out if people with sickle cell disease can be cured by changing their immune system before they have blood stem cell transplants. Doctors will give patients a new drug (fludarabine) to see if this drug changes patients immune system and reduces the patient's cells (host) from rejecting donor cells (graft) after the patient gets a Hematopoietic (blood) stem cell transplant.

Treosulfan Pharmacokinetics in Children Undergoing Allogeneic HSCT

Every year around 70 children affected by cancer or life-threatening genetic diseases undergo haematopoietic cell transplantation (HCT) within the Blood and Marrow Transplant (BMT) unit at Great Ormond Street Hospital (GOSH). One of the main goals of the BMT unit over the last decade has been to reduce the morbidity and mortality related to HCT, and the group has become a world-leader in pioneering less toxic transplants. Fixed high doses of chemotherapy drugs are gener...

Study to Compare the Pharmacokinetics of Tacrolimus in Adult Transplant Recipients Treated With Advagraf® or Prograf®

Comparison of tacrolimus blood levels in adults who have received a transplant and are taking either Prograf or Advagraf anti-rejection therapy immediately following surgery. This is followed by checking of safety and effectiveness for one year.

Randomized Open Label Study Evaluating the Coverage by Teleconsultation Versus Standard Follow-up of Renal Transplant Patients According to a Risk Score of Early Graft Failure (KTFS)

The main objective of this study is to optimize the coverage of renal transplant patients thanks to a personalized follow-up based on a risk score of early graft failure (KTFS, Kidney Transplant Failure Score), associated with teleconsultations.

Anti-Angiogenic Therapy Post Transplant (ASCR) for Relapsed and Refractory Pediatric Solid Tumors

The purpose of this research study is to determine whether taking either of two low dose drugs that would prevent new blood vessels from growing after stem cell transplant is feasible, and what the side effects of taking each of these drugs after autologous transplant might be. The reason the investigators are looking at these drugs is because one of the things that allows tumors to grow quickly is their ability to stimulate the growth of new blood vessels. By suppressing the...

Gene Expression in Liver Allograft Rejection and Recurrent Hepatitis C

Acute cellular rejection is relatively common after liver transplantation, typically does not affect graft survival, and is not associated with the development of chronic rejection. Acute cellular rejection is diagnosed when liver enzymes and/or liver function tests are elevated when compared to baseline. The only means of differentiating acute rejection from other liver pathologies is with a liver biopsy. However, even with this invasive diagnostic procedure, it may be difficu...

Scleroderma Treatment With Autologous Transplant (STAT) Study

This phase II trial studies how well giving cyclophosphamide and anti-thymocyte globulin together followed by peripheral blood stem cell transplant (PBSCT) and mycophenolate mofetil works in treating patients with systemic scleroderma (SSc). Stem cells are collected from the patient's blood and stored prior to treatment. To store the stem cells patients are given colony-stimulating factors, such as filgrastim (G-CSF) or chemotherapy (cyclophosphamide) to help stem cells move fr...

Vaccination With Tetanus and KLH to Assess Immune Responses.

The purpose of this study is to learn how the immune system works in response to vaccines. We will give the vaccines to subjects who have cancer but have not had treatment, and to patients who have had chemotherapy or stem cell transplant. Some patients will get vaccines while they are on treatments which boost the immune system (like the immune stimulating drug interleukin-2 or IL-2). Although we have safely treated many patients with immune boosting drugs, we do not yet kno...

To restore immunologic function and virus-free state in HIV-infected patients. Based on previous studies showing temporary improvement in immune function in HIV-infected patients using peripheral lymphocyte transfers and bone marrow transplantation, and based on studies documenting the antiretroviral effects of zidovudine (AZT) and interferon-alfa (IFN-A) as well as the preliminary test tube and patient studies suggesting anti-HIV effects of recombinant CD4-IgG, we propose to t...

A Study To Test An Anti-Rejection Therapy After Kidney Transplantation

Kidney transplantation is often successful. However, despite aggressive anti-rejection drug therapy, some patients will reject their new kidney. This study is designed to test two anti-rejection approaches. Two medications in this study are currently used in children, but there is no information regarding which drug is safer or more effective. Survival rates in renal transplantation are unacceptably low. Therefore, there is a need for an improved post-transplant treatment, ...

An Evaluation of IV Gamma Globulin As a Method to Improve Kidney Transplant Survival in Patients With End-Stage Renal Disease Who Are Highly Sensitized to Transplant Antigens

This study is designed to test the clinical and laboratory observations that suggest IVIG given before and after kidney transplant to patients who are sensitized (highly sensitive) to certain transplant antigens could result in reduced sensitization and reduced rates of kidney rejection. Some ESRD patients are highly sensitive to certain transplant antigens (foreign substances that activate the immune system) and must wait for a long time before a well-matched kidney bec...

Modified Bone Marrow Stem Cell Transplantation for Chronic Myelogenous Leukemia

This study will investigate the safety and effectiveness of a new stem cell transplant procedure for treating chronic myelogenous leukemia (CML). Transplantation of donated stem cells (cells produced by the bone marrow that mature into the different blood components-white cells, red cells and platelets) is a very effective treatment for CML. However, despite its success in a large number of patients, there is still a significant risk of death from the procedure. In addition,...
