Allogeneic Stem Cell Transplantation, Severe Homzygous 0/+Thalassemia or Sever Variants of Beta 0/+ Thalassemia, THALLO

Patients have severe beta-thalassemia or one of the thalassemia variants. Thalassemia is a hereditary disease in which the bone marrow produces abnormal red blood cells that have a shorter life span than normal red blood cells. Because of that, the patient has chronically low red blood cell numbers (anemia) and need regular blood transfusions to help the patient feel better and to help prevent damage to important organs such as the heart. The following treatments are currently ...

A Study of Belimumab in the Prevention of Kidney Transplant Rejection

Kidney transplantation is the best treatment for many patients with kidney failure. Sometimes a transplanted kidney is rejected by the patient's immune system. Many types of immune system cells, including B cells, are active in rejection. B cells produce antibodies against anything the body sees as non-self, like germs or a transplanted kidney. Most medicines that help prevent transplant rejection affect cells other than B cells. Belimumab is a medication used to treat a diseas...

Intensity-Modulated Radiation Therapy, Etoposide, and Cyclophosphamide Followed By Donor Stem Cell Transplant in Treating Patients With Relapsed or Refractory Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia or Acute Myeloid Leukemia

We want to find out which procedure over will result in improved recovery of blood and immune function after transplant. When donor stem cells are given over various days in mice, the blood and immune system recovery is quicker.

Bortezomib in Late Antibody-mediated Kidney Transplant Rejection

Late antibody-mediated rejection (AMR) after kidney transplantation is defined as a separate rejection entity. So far, no appropriate treatment has been established for this rejection type. One promising strategy could be the targeting of alloantibody-producing plasma cells. There is now accumulating evidence that the proteasome inhibitor Bortezomib may substantially affect the function and integrity of non-malignant alloantibody-secreting plasma cells. The impact of this compo...

Marrow Mesenchymal Cell Therapy for Osteogenesis Imperfecta: A Pilot Study

Osteogenesis imperfecta (OI) is a genetic disease for which there is currently no known cure. OI causes the osteoblasts (bone-forming cells in the body) to grow poorly, which slows the growth of children with the disease and causes their bones to bend and break easily. Some forms of osteogenesis imperfecta may cause severe disability and even death. In previous research studies performed at St. Jude, it was found that children treated with bone marrow transplant (infusion of he...
