Combination Chemotherapy Followed By Donor Bone Marrow or Umbilical Cord Blood Transplant in Treating Children With Newly Diagnosed Juvenile Myelomonocytic Leukemia

RATIONALE: Giving chemotherapy drugs, such as R115777, isotretinoin, cytarabine, and fludarabine, before a donor bone marrow transplant or an umbilical cord transplant helps stop the growth of cancer cells. It also helps stop the patient's immune system from rejecting the donor's stem cells. When the healthy stem cells from a donor are infused into the patient they may help the patient's bone marrow make stem cells, red blood cells, white blood cells, and platelets. PURP...

Selective T-Cell Depletion to Reduce Graft-Versus-Host-Disease in Patients Receiving Stem Cell Transplantation to Treat Leukemia, Lymphoma or Myelodysplastic Syndromes

This study will evaluate the safety and effectiveness of stem cell transplantation in which the donors T lymphocytes (a type of white cell) have undergone "selective depletion." Certain patients with cancers of the blood undergo transplantation of donated stem cells (cells produced by the bone marrow that mature into the different blood components-white cells, red cells and platelets) to generate new and normally functioning bone marrow. In addition to producing the new bone m...

Combination Chemotherapy and Peripheral Stem Cell Transplant in Treating Patients With Relapsed Hodgkin's Lymphoma

RATIONALE: Drugs used in chemotherapy use different ways to stop cancer cells from dividing so they stop growing or die. Peripheral stem cell transplant may allow the doctors to give higher doses of chemotherapy drugs and kill more cancer cells. It is not yet known which combination chemotherapy regimen given before peripheral stem cell transplant is more effective in treating relapsed Hodgkin's lymphoma. PURPOSE: This randomized phase III trial is comparing different regimens...

Surveillance of Fungal Infections in Bone Marrow/Stem Cell and Organ Transplant Recipients

This study will collect data on the incidence (rate of occurrence) of fungal infections in recipients of bone marrow, stem cell or organ transplants. The data will provide information needed to develop strategies for prevention and early treatment of fungal infections in these patients. Any patient receiving bone marrow transplantation, peripheral stem cell transplantation or solid organ transplantation is eligible for this study. The survey will be conducted over a 3-...

Stem Cell Gene Therapy to Treat X-Linked Severe Combined Immunodeficiency (XSCID)

This is a clinical trial of gene therapy for X-linked severe combined immunodeficiency (XSCID), a genetic disease caused by defects in a protein called the common gamma chain, which is normally on the surface of immune cells called lymphocytes. XSCID patients cannot make T lymphocytes, and their B lymphocytes fail to make essential antibodies for fighting infections. Without T and B lymphocytes patients develop fatal infections in infancy unless they are rescued by a bone mar...

Melphalan, Fludarabine, and Alemtuzumab Followed by Peripheral Stem Cell Transplant in Treating Patients With Hematologic Cancer

RATIONALE: Giving low doses of chemotherapy, such as melphalan and fludarabine, and a monoclonal antibody, such as alemtuzumab, before a donor bone marrow or peripheral blood stem cell transplant helps stop the growth of cancer cells. It also stops the patient's immune system from rejecting the donor's stem cells. The donated stem cells may replace the patient's immune system and help destroy any remaining cancer cells (graft-versus-tumor effect). Sometimes the transplanted cel...

Peripheral Stem Cell Transplant in Treating Patients With Multiple Myeloma

RATIONALE: Peripheral blood stem cell transplant using stem cells from the patient or a donor may be able to replace immune cells that were destroyed by chemotherapy used to kill tumor cells. The donated stem cells may also help destroy any remaining cancer cells (graft-versus-tumor effect). PURPOSE: This phase II trial is studying how well autologous peripheral stem cell transplant followed by donor peripheral stem cell transplant works in treating patients with multiple ...

Stem Cell Transplantation to Treat Leukocyte Adhesion Deficiency

This study will investigate the safety and effectiveness of a modified stem cell transplant procedure for treating leukocyte adhesion deficiency (LAD). LAD is an inherited blood disorder of leukocytes (infection-fighting white blood cells) that leaves patients vulnerable to life-threatening infections. Transplantation of donated stem cells (cells produced by the bone marrow that mature into blood cells) can improve the immune system of patients with LAD. However, this procedure...

Combination Chemotherapy With or Without Filgrastim Before Surgery, High-Dose Chemotherapy, and Radiation Therapy Followed by Isotretinoin With or Without Monoclonal Antibody in Treating Patients With Neuroblastoma

RATIONALE: Colony-stimulating factors such as filgrastim may increase the number of immune cells found in bone marrow or peripheral blood and may help a person's immune system recover from the side effects of chemotherapy. Combining chemotherapy with peripheral stem cell transplant may allow the doctor to give higher doses of chemotherapy drugs and kill more tumor cells. Monoclonal antibodies can locate tumor cells and either kill them or deliver tumor-killing substances to the...

Donor Peripheral Stem Cell Transplant in Treating Patients With Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia

RATIONALE: Giving low doses of chemotherapy, such as fludarabine, and radiation therapy before a donor peripheral blood stem cell transplant helps stop the growth of cancer cells. It also stops the patient's immune system from rejecting the donor's stem cells. The donated stem cells may replace the patient's immune system and help destroy any remaining cancer cells (graft-versus-tumor effect). Giving an infusion of the donor's T cells (donor lymphocyte infusion) after the trans...

Evaluation of Efficacy and Mechanisms of an Antiinflammatory Intervention for Chemotherapy Related Mucosal Injury

Stomatitis is defined as inflammation of the mucous membranes of the oral cavity and oropharynx characterized by tissue erythema, edema, and atrophy, often progressing to ulceration. Stomatitis is a biologically complex, multifactorial, treatment-related oral condition experienced by many oncology patients, which often leads to a cascade of negative sequelae including oropharyngeal pain, critical treatment alterations or cessation, and decreased quality of life. The optimal tre...

The Effects of Music Therapy-Based Stress Reduction on Bone Marrow Transplant Recipients

The purpose of this study is to determine the effects of music therapy-based relaxation stress/reduction strategies on the frequency/severity of toxic side-effects of marrow ablative chemotherapy and the timing of immune reconstitution in patients undergoing bone marrow/stem cell transplantation.

Immune Response to Cytomegalovirus

This study will evaluate immune responses against cytomegalovirus (CMV). About 80 percent of adults have been exposed to this virus. CMV typically remains dormant (inactive) in the body, causing no problems. In people with immune suppression, however, the virus can become reactivated and cause life-threatening pneumonia. The knowledge gained from this study may be useful in developing ways to improve immune responses to CMV in stem cell transplant recipients. Healthy nor...

Study Comparing the Safety and Efficacy of BMS-224818 to Cyclosporine, in Patients Receiving a Kidney Transplant, When Used in Combination With CellCept, Simulect, and Corticosteroids.

The purpose of this study is to see if BMS-224818 treatment will be as efficacious as cyclosporine at preventing acute rejection, and a superior safety / tolerability profile (better kidney function, better blood pressure, less lipid problems, less diabetes mellitus, etc.)

Prophylaxis Trial in High Risk Allogenic Stem Cell Transplant Recipients With Graft Vs. Host Disease (COMPLETED)

This trial is in high risk patients to determine the safety, tolerance and efficacy of posaconazole (POZ) vs. fluconazole in the prophylaxis against development of invasive fungal infections (IFI).

Fludarabine and Total-Body Irradiation Followed By Donor Peripheral Stem Cell Transplant in Treating Patients With Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia or Chronic Myelogenous Leukemia That Has Responded to Treatment With Imatinib Mesylate, Dasatinib, or Nilotinib

RATIONALE: Giving imatinib mesylate, dasatinib, or nilotinib low doses of chemotherapy, such as fludarabine, and radiation therapy before a donor peripheral blood stem cell transplant helps stop the growth of cancer cells. It also stops the patient's immune system from rejecting the donor's stem cells. The donated stem cells may replace the patient's immune system and help destroy any remaining cancer cells (graft-versus-tumor effect). Giving an infusion of the donor's T cells ...

Study Comparing Conversion to Sirolimus vs. Continued Use of Calcineurin Inhibitors in Kidney Transplant Recipients

The purpose of this study is to determine the effect of conversion from calcineurin inhibitor to sirolimus based therapy on renal function.

To determine the safety and maximum tolerated dose of Mylotarg as part of a reduced-intensi...

A Trial of Skeletal Targeted Radiotherapy Using Holmium-166-DOTMP in Patients With Multiple Myeloma

Multiple myeloma is a disease that resides primarily in the bone and has shown to be sensitive to radiation. Administration of a radiotherapy agent that targets the bone, such as Holmium-166-DOTMP, in conjunction with melphalan and an autologous stem cell transplant, may improve the patient's chance of responding to treatment. The purpose of this study is to determine the amount of Holmium-166-DOTMP that localizes in the bone and in normal organs, and to evaluate the safety a...

Pilot Study: Effects of G-CSF on T Cell Function

This study will evaluate changes in T cells-infection-fighting white blood cells of the immune system-in people given a drug called G-CSF before donating stem cells (immature bone marrow cells) for transplantation. Originally, bone marrow cells were obtained using a needle inserted into the hipbone of the donor. However, when it was discovered that immature bone marrow cells also circulate in the blood, scientists began to develop techniques to collect quantities of these cells...

Alemtuzumab, Total-Body Irradiation, and Fludarabine Followed By Donor Peripheral Stem Cell Transplant in Treating Patients With Hematologic Cancer

RATIONALE: Giving chemotherapy and total body irradiation before a donor peripheral blood stem cell transplant helps stop the growth of cancer cells. It also helps stop the patient's immune system from rejecting the donor's stem cells. Also, monoclonal antibodies, such as alemtuzumab, can find cancer cells and either kill them or deliver cancer-killing substances to them without harming normal cells. When the healthy stem cells from a donor are infused into the patient they may...
