Mobilization of Stem Cells With G-CSF for Collection From Patients With Diamond-Blackfan Anemia

This study will provide information needed to develop more effective treatments for patients with Diamond-Blackfan anemia (DBA). Current treatments include steroids, such as prednisone, and blood transfusions. These treatments have potential long-term risk and side effects, including osteoporosis and impaired growth from steroids or iron overload from transfusions. In addition, as patients reach adulthood, they can develop acute leukemia or bone marrow failure. The only cur...

Chemotherapy and Peripheral Stem Cell Transplant With or Without Monoclonal Antibody Therapy in Treating Patients With Non-Hodgkin's Lymphoma

RATIONALE: Drugs used in chemotherapy work in different ways to stop the growth of tumor cells, either by killing the cells or by stopping them from dividing. Peripheral stem cell transplant may be able to replace immune cells that were destroyed by the chemotherapy. Monoclonal antibodies, such as rituximab, can block tumor growth in different ways. Some block the ability of tumor cells to grow and spread. Others find tumor cells and help kill them or carry tumor-killing substa...

Chemotherapy Followed by Peripheral Stem Cell or Bone Marrow Transplant Compared With Chemotherapy Alone in Treating Patients With Small Cell Lung Cancer

RATIONALE: Drugs used in chemotherapy use different ways to stop tumor cells from dividing so they stop growing or die. Giving chemotherapy with peripheral stem cell transplant or bone marrow transplant may allow the doctor to give higher doses of chemotherapy drugs and kill more tumor cells. It is not yet known whether high-dose chemotherapy plus peripheral stem cell or bone marrow transplant is more effective than chemotherapy alone in treating small cell lung cancer....

This study will examine the relationship between bacterial products in lung infections in cystic fibrosis and disease severity. It will examine plasma and lung tissue from cystic fibrosis patients. Patients with cystic fibrosis and having certain genetic characteristics, who are between 9 and 65 years of age and any cystic fibrosis patient undergoing lung transplantation at INOVA Fairfax Hospital in Fairfax, Virginia, may be eligible for this study. Patients who cannot...

Patterns and Natural History of Insulin Secretion in Islet Cell Transplant Recipients and Controls

This grant is to study patients that have received a kidney transplant AND an Islet Cell transplant and to discover how the transplant is functioning. We will seek to have several patients who have had a kidney transplant but do NOT have either type of diabetes. These patients will serve as the "control group" since they will also be on immunosuppressive medications but are not affected by abnormal blood sugars. This will allow investigators to develop an understanding of ho...

Paclitaxel/Cyclophosphamide and High-Dose Melphalan/Etoposide Plus Peripheral Stem Cell Transplantation in Treating Patients With Stage IIIB Inflammatory Breast Cancer

RATIONALE: Drugs used in chemotherapy, such as paclitaxel, cyclophosphamide, melphalan, and etoposide, work in different ways to stop the growth of tumor cells, either by killing the cells or by stopping them from dividing. Giving chemotherapy with a peripheral stem cell transplant may allow more chemotherapy to be given so that more cells are killed. PURPOSE: This phase I/II trial is studying the side effects of giving paclitaxel, cyclophosphamide, melphalan, and etoposide to...

Islet Cell Transplantation Alone and CD34+ Enriched Bone Marrow Cell Infusion in Patients With Diabetes Mellitus: Steroid-Free Regimen

The goal of islet cell transplantation in Type 1 diabetics is to provide those affected with constant normal blood glucose levels, thereby reducing or eliminating altogether the need for injected insulin. This normalization may prevent or slow progression of diabetic complications, result in a healthier lifestyle, and lead to a better quality of life. Participants who meet the inclusion criteria will undergo an extensive screening process which typically includes a series of b...

Combination Chemotherapy With or Without Peripheral Stem Cell Transplant in Treating Children With Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia

RATIONALE: Giving combination chemotherapy before a donor peripheral 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. 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. PURPOSE: This phase II trial is studying how well combination chemotherapy with or witho...

Steroid Withdrawal in Pediatric Kidney Transplant Recipients

The purpose of this study is to examine the effects of withdrawing steroids on graft rejection and kidney functions in kidney transplant recipients. Graft survival has improved in recent years in children with kidney transplants. One bad side effect of steroid maintenance therapy has been growth retardation. Doctors believe steroids might be safely withdrawn in patients that are receiving other maintenance therapies. If steroids are removed, children might catch up in their gr...

Pediatric Kidney Transplant Without Calcineurin Inhibitors

The purpose of this study is to see the effect of using drugs other than calcineurin inhibitors to improve the rate of kidney transplant failure. Kidney transplantation can help children with end-stage kidney disease. However, it has been difficult to find treatment for donor graft rejection that does not have a lot of side effects. Researchers hope to find treatments (immunosuppressants) with fewer side effects. One approach is to avoid using calcineurin inhibitors and to try...

p450 Mediated Lung Toxicity

The purpose of this project is to do cross species comparisons of the metabolism and toxicity of a number of toxicants which require metabolism for toxicity. All of the toxicants in question are encountered by humans in the workplace, through lifestyle choices (cigarette smoking) and as a result of environmental contamination. The high incidence of pulmonary diseases in the human population means that it will be difficult if not impossible to determine whether humans are at r...

Combination Chemotherapy With or Without Radiation Therapy and Peripheral Stem Cell Transplant in Treating Children With Hodgkin's Lymphoma

RATIONALE: Drugs used in chemotherapy use different ways to stop cancer cells from dividing so they stop growing or die. Radiation therapy uses high-energy x-rays to damage tumor cells. Peripheral stem cell transplant may be able to replace immune cells that were destroyed by chemotherapy. PURPOSE: This phase II trial is studying how well combination chemotherapy regimens with or without radiation therapy or peripheral stem cell transplant works in treating children with...

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...

Chemotherapy and Biological Therapy With or Without Bone Marrow or Peripheral Stem Cell Transplant in Treating Patients With Chronic Myelogenous Leukemia

RATIONALE: Giving chemotherapy, such as hydroxyurea, cytarabine, idarubicin, and etoposide before a donor bone marrow transplant or 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. Interferon alfa may interfere with the growth of cancer cells and slow the growth of cancer.
