This study is a two-arm, interventional, prospective, open-label, multi-center clinical trial with randomized and non-randomized study groups to evaluate the safety and effectiveness of faecal microbiota transplantation (FMT) for the treatment of adult patients suffering from primary or recurrent Clostridium difficile infection (CDI), using a novel, standardized microbiota transplantation system.
This study will evaluate if an association exists between levels of blood flow through the pulmonary veins and the incidence of graft dysfunction post operatively.
Evaluate the association between donor soluble protein ST2 (sST2) serum levels and 30-day recipient mortality in order to improve graft screening.
Background: - Improved treatments for a variety of treatment-resistant, CD30-expressing malignancies including Hodgkin lymphoma, anaplastic large cell lymphoma, and other CD30- expressing lymphomas are needed. - T cells can be genetically modified to express chimeric antigen receptors (CARs) that specifically target malignancy-associated antigens. - Autologous T cells genetically modified to express CARs targeting the B-cell antigen C...
Arterial flushing is a standard recommendation in deceased donor liver transplantation but not in living donor liver transplantation due to the risk of arterial intimal injury and short cold ischaemia time. There is recent evidence on benefit of retrograde arterial perfusion using hepatic venous occlusion and its benefits on post transplant cholestasis. However there is no data on antegrade arterial flushing.
The purpose of this study is to further test islet cell transplant in patients who have had a kidney transplant. This study will also evaluate the safety and effectiveness of the anti-rejection medications used to prevent rejection after your islet cell transplant.
The purpose of the study is to investigate the safety and efficacy of oral vancomycin in patients with recurrent Primary Sclerosing Cholangitis (PSC) after liver transplantation. The primary endpoint is looking at the effect of the drug on liver function tests, an important surrogate of PSC disease activity at 12 weeks on treatment. Secondary endpoints include a decrease in liver function tests at 1 year, changes in bilirubin and adverse events. Effective treatment at the onset...
Patients with End Stage Kidney Disease (ESKD) require Renal Replacement Therapy (RRT) in order to survive, be it dialysis or kidney transplantation (KT). Of the two modalities, KT has been associated with better quality of life (QOL) [1-3], reduced morbidity and mortality[4, 5], and reduced healthcare costs. Studies in the US have shown that patients receiving tailored transplant education were more likely to complete the transplant evaluation [9, 14, 15]. For instance, pati...
This project intends to transplant the clinical grade human embryonic stem cells derived retinal pigment epitheliums into subretinal space of patients to treat dry age-related macular degeneration(dry-AMD).And we will assess the safety and efficacy of RPE transplants to treat dry AMD.
The purpose of this study is to establish an ultrasound mathematical model using acoustic radiation force impulse (ARFI) and contrast-enhanced ultrasonography (CEUS) for diagnosing the status of renal allografts.
The overarching goal of this five-year, phase II, randomized clinical trial is to improve poor long-term health outcomes in both adolescents and young adults (AYA) with either a kidney transplant (KT) or spina bifida (SB), respectively. More specifically, this study will focus on decreasing premature allograft loss in subjects with kidney transplant (KT) due to medication nonadherence and kidney damage in subjects with SB due to urinary non-continence. To achieve these goals, t...
This is a hypothesis-generating pilot study. The intent is to model the impact of perioperative practices on the gut microbiome and possibly associate these conditions with the final microbiome status (e.g., number of resistance genes and density associated with perioperative practices and preoperative microbiome status). Participants will include individuals who are having surgery to either receive or donate a kidney. To determine the diversity change of the intestinal microbi...
Improvement of event free survival of high-risk neuroblastoma patients by introduction of two additional topotecan containing chemotherapy cycles into the multimodal standard treatment (induction chemotherapy, megatherapy, radiation, surgery as indicated, and consolidation therapy).
Most participants with a relapsed or refractory non-Hodgkin's lymphoma that receive an autologous transplant are likely to suffer a relapse because standard myeloablative preparative regimens are unable to produce a cure. The majority of these participants do not have a stem cell donor available, are too frail to undergo an allogeneic transplant, or refuse an allograft. Historically these participants with high risk non-Hodgkin's lymphoma have had a very poor outcome. To...
Allogeneic hematopoietic stem cell transplantation (HSCT) is capable of definitive cure of acute leukemias. The most important post-transplant complication is graft vs host disease (GVHD) which can be substantially decreased by the addition of anti-T lymphocyte globulin (ATG-Grafalon) to the standard GVHD prophylaxis (cyclosporin and methotrexate) without any increase in relapses and infections (Kroger et al NEJM 2016, ClinicalTrials.gov number, NCT00678275). In the ATG_familys...
This research study is evaluating a psychological intervention for caregivers of patients undergoing stem cell transplantation. Phase 1 will include a qualitative phase to refine the intervention to specifically target the needs of caregivers Phase 2 of the trial will transition to an interventional randomization clinical trial
Local ablative treatment of Hepatocellular Carcinoma is performed primary on patients not eligible for liver transplant or liver resection. At our Hospital two different methods are used: Microwave ablation, where the tumor cells are heated up and killed, and Irreversible electroporation, where the tumor cells are exposed to an electrical field and nano-pores are formed in the cell membranes and the cells go into apoptosis (programed cell death). Previous studies have shown ef...
The primary objective of this study is to establish that single dose vitamin A supplementation is feasible and safe in pediatric and young adult bone marrow transplant recipients until day +30 (± 7 days) after hematopoietic stem cell transplantation.
This study is designed to determine feasibility of using a continuous glucose monitor in pediatric, adolescent and young adult hematopoietic stem cell transplant (HSCT) recipients, and to identify the incidence and risk factors for malglycemia in primary admission for pediatric, adolescent and young adult HSCT patients as well as to characterize the relationship between outcomes and malglycemia in this population.
The aim of this study is to determine if amiloride, a diuretic drug, is capable of increasing renal salt excretion, lowering blood pressure and inhibiting uPA in kidney transplant recipients with proteinuria compared to normoalbuminuric transplant patients.
This phase II trial studies the how well donor stem cell transplant works in treating patients with high risk hematologic malignancies. Giving total-body irradiation and chemotherapy before a donor stem cell transplant helps stop the growth of cells in the bone marrow, including normal blood-forming cells (stem cells) and cancer cells. It may also stop the patient's immune system from rejecting the donor's stem cells. When the healthy stem cells from a donor are infused into th...
Our trial try to eradicate digestive tract colonization of patient harboring Extreme Drug Resistant (XDR) bacteria by performing a fecal transplantation.
There is good evidence that randomizing C. difficile NAAT(+), toxin(-) patients to non-treatment represents an ethically tolerable risk-benefit, even in cancer patients and hematopoetic stem cell transplant (HSCT) recipients. Actually, detection of free toxin in the stool was the standard of care for the diagnosis of C. difficile infection (CDI) from 1983 through 2010. Since then, NAAT became the standard diagnostic test for over 60% of US hospitals (National Healthcare Safety ...
Based on the need to improve outcomes post second autologous stem cell transplant (ASCT) for multiple myeloma (MM) and the benefits seen of maintenance treatment following initial ASCT, the natural next step is to evaluate maintenance/continuation therapy following second ASCT. Pomalidomide is active against MM cells refractory to both bortezomib and lenalidomide, making it an ideal choice for continuation therapy following second ASCT. Adding elotuzumab may increase efficacy ...
The purpose of the proposed research study is to evaluate whether bone marrow transplant patients prefer the Stanford letter advance care planning tool to the standard Advance directive. Completion of advance care planning prior to BMT is very important, but not often done. The investigators believe that the Stanford Letter will be preferred by patients and will allow them to feel more comfortable and share more of their wishes with family members and the medical team.
