Skeletal Muscle Perfusion With LVAD

Advanced heart failure (when the heart pump fails) is associated with symptoms such as shortness of breath and extreme fatigue. Some of these symptoms are simply due to failure of the pump, however abnormal regulation of blood flow to the muscles of the body is also a potential mechanism. Left ventricular assist devices are mechanical pumps used to compensate for patients with failing hearts either as a bridge to heart transplant or as long term therapy. Whether or not these pu...

Allogeneic Transplantation For Severe Osteopetrosis

The purpose of this research is to explore what we believe may be a safer and more effective means of performing stem cell transplantation in patients with Osteopetrosis, using chemotherapy and radiation designed to bring about engraftment and lessen transplant mortality. Prior multi-institutional data in past studies found that approximately 30% of Osteopetrosis patients do not engraft. Therefore, in this study, we utilize a reduced intensity design of pre-transplant drugs t...

HSCT for Patients With Fanconi Anemia Using Risk-Adjusted Chemotherapy

The purpose of this study is to determine whether the use of lower doses of busulfan and the elimination of cyclosporine will further reduce transplant-related side effects for patients with Fanconi Anemia (FA). Patients will undergo a transplant utilizing mis-matched related or matched unrelated donors following a preparative regimen of busulfan, fludarabine, anti-thymocyte globulin and cyclophosphamide.

Stem Cell Transplant for Hematological Malignancy

The purpose of this study is to develop a standard of care treatment using allogeneic stem cells for patients with cancers of the blood. The protocol was revised to reflect that this study is considered "treatment guidelines", rather than a research study.

Chemotherapy and Unrelated Donor Stem Cell Transplantation for Patients With Cancers of the Blood and Immune System

Background: Major problems with stem cell transplantation (SCT) for cancer treatment are a lack of suitable donors for patients without an HLA tissue-matched sibling and graft-versus-host disease (GVHD), a serious side effects of immune-suppressing chemotherapy that is given to bring the cancer under control before SCT. In GVHD, the patient s immune system attacks the transplanted donor cells. This study will try to improve the results of SCT from unrelated HLA-matche...

Infusion of T-Regulatory Cells in Kidney Transplant Recipients (The ONE Study)

This research study is for patients who are going to receive a kidney transplant from a living donor. After kidney transplantation, it is necessary for transplant recipients to take "immunosuppressive drugs". These drugs work by preventing the body's immune cells from attacking and "rejecting" the new kidney. Taking these drugs long-term may also cause harm to the transplanted kidney. Therefore, the transplant community is very interested in finding ways to decrease immunosupp...

Immunotherapy Study in Borderline Resectable or Locally Advanced Unresectable Pancreatic Cancer

Unfortunately, despite the best clinical efforts and breakthroughs in biotechnology, most patients diagnosed with pancreatic cancer continue to die from the rapid progression of their disease. One primary reason for this is that the disease is typically without symptoms until significant local and/or distant spread has occurred and is often beyond the chance for cure at the time of the diagnosis. The lack of any treatment to substantially increase long term survival rates is re...
