SURPASS: A Randomized, Double-Blind, Multicenter Study of the Efficacy, Safety, and Tolerability of Brincidofovir Versus Valganciclovir for the Prevention of Cytomegalovirus (CMV) Disease in CMV Seropositive Kidney Transplant Recipients (BCV CMV vGCV)
• To compare the efficacy of brincidofovir (BCV) to valganciclovir (vGCV) for the prevention of CMV disease in kidney transplant recipients who are CMV seropositive pretransplant and received antilymphocyte induction therapy
Patients enrolled on this study will have received a stem cell transplant. After a transplant, while the immune system grows back the patient is at risk for infection. Some viruses can stay in the body for life, and if the immune system is weakened (like after a transplant), they can cause life-threatening infections. CMV can cause serious infections in patients with weak or suppressed immune systems. It usually affects the lungs, causing a very serious pneumonia, but it can a...
RATIONALE: Bortezomib may stop the growth of cancer cells by blocking some of the enzymes needed for cell growth. Giving chemotherapy drugs, such as fludarabine phosphate and melphalan, and total marrow irradiation before a donor peripheral blood stem cell transplant helps stop the growth of cancer cells and 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 patien...
Background: Renal transplant recipients have a greater risk of morbidity and mortality primarily due to cardiovascular disease when compared to the general population. Cardiovascular disease is responsible for 50% to 60% percent of deaths amongst renal transplant population and death from cardiovascular disease is a leading cause of functioning graft loss. Physical activity is an effective form of secondary prevention in existing cardiovascular disease reducing all-caus...
This observational study will evaluate renal function in patients who underwent renal allograft transplantation and are started on combined immunosuppressive treatment containing CellCept (mycophenolate mofetil). Eligible patients will be followed for 12 months following transplantation.
The purpose of this study is to find out if getting a blood stem cell transplant with donor stem cells given over several days is better than getting a blood stem cell transplant with donor stem cells given over 1 day. 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.
RATIONALE: Monoclonal antibodies can locate cancer cells and either kill them or deliver cancer-killing substances to them without harming normal cells. Drugs used in chemotherapy use different ways to stop cancer cells from dividing so they stop growing or die. Combining chemotherapy with peripheral stem cell transplant may allow the doctor to give higher doses of chemotherapy drugs and kill more cancer cells. PURPOSE: This phase II trial is studying how well monoclonal antib...
The purpose of this study is to evaluate the safety and tolerability associated with the combination of ATRA/celecoxib/itraconazole as maintenance therapy given after an autologous stem cell transplant in relapsed multiple myeloma patients.
This study will determine the highest dose of the experimental drug ON 01910.Na that can safely be given to patients with the bone marrow disorder myelodysplasia (MDS) and patients with refractory AML with trisomy 8. In this disease, the bone marrow can make some blood cells, but very few of these cells are released into the blood for use in the body. ON 01910.Na is an experimental drug that inhibits a protein called cyclinD1that is important for keeping MDS cells alive. In la...
The primary goal of this multicenter study is to determine the safety and feasibility of a Bone Marrow Transplantation (BMT) in young adults with severe sickle cell disease (SCD) using a reduced toxicity conditioning regimen consisting of busulfan (Bu)/ fludarabine (Flu)/ anti-thymocyte globulin (ATG). A two-component design will be used for this study. The first component will be restricted to patients who have an HLA-identical sibling donor. Five patients will be enrolled du...
The goal of this clinical research study is to learn whether higher doses of stem cells can help to decrease the symptoms that occur after melphalan. Another goal of the study is to see how the dose of infused stem cells affects the levels of certain proteins in your blood. Researchers also want to learn how the dose of stem cells that you receive affects the quality of your life during the weeks after the transplant procedure.
The proposed protocol will involve the replacement of the trachea using a synthetic bioengineered scaffold seeded with autologous mononuclear cells as an intraoperative solution for patients with with benign and malignant laryngo-tracheal diseases or other terminal conditions of the trachea. Tracheal transplant is indicated as the only therapeutic alternative in cases where instrumental, endoscopic and other evaluations show that the length of residual healthy airways (a...
This is a prospective randomized controlled study to evaluate feasibility and safety of early steroid withdrawal after 6mg/kg vs 4.5mg/kg Thymoglobulin induction therapy in kidney transplantation. Patients are enrolled from June, 2015 for 24 months. They are randomized to either 6mg/kg or 4.5mg/kg Thymoglobulin induction group. Steroid withdrawal is done within one week after kidney transplantation for all the patients. Maintenance immunosuppressants are Tacrolimus and Mycophen...
The main purpose of this study is to assess whether early integration of palliative and supportive care services in care of patients hospitalized for hematopoietic stem cell transplantation (HSCT) can improve patients' and family caregivers' quality of life and mood.
The purpose of this study is to evaluate the effectiveness of Bortezomib when added to standard chemotherapy medicine(s) for treatment of Multiple Myeloma.
The goal of this clinical research study is to learn if an infusion of white blood cells (called T cells) that have been genetically changed is safe to give patients who have received an UCBT. Researchers want to learn if these genetically changed T-cells are effective in attacking cancer cells in patients with advanced B-cell lymphoma or leukemia after they have received an UCBT, how long the changed T-cells stay in the body, and if adding them to standard transplant could im...
This study will compare kidney function in kidney transplant patients following treatment with various combinations of Zenapax, CellCept, corticosteroids, and Neoral (Cyclosporine). The anticipated time on study treatment is 6-12 months, and the target sample size is 500+ individuals.
This is a non-interventional cohort study to assess a novel assay to detect excessive or insufficient immunosuppression from the drug tacrolimus in lung transplant recipients. The assay measures mean residual expression (MRE) of genes downstream of NFAT, a transcription factor regulated by tacrolimus. The investigators will assess whether MRE levels identify subjects at risk for rejection (insufficient immunosuppression) or infection (excessive immunosuppression).
This study will evaluate the safety, tolerability, and antiviral efficacy of ledipasvir/sofosbuvir (LDV/SOF) fixed-dose combination (FDC) for 12 or 24 weeks in adults with chronic genotype 1 or genotype 4 hepatitis C virus (HCV) infection who have had a kidney transplant.
The goal of this clinical research study is to compare how well two different schedules of giving busulfan with fludarabine and cladribine before a stem cell transplant in patients with AML or MDS may help to control the disease. The safety of this drug combination will also be studied.
This phase I trial studies the highest possible dose of central memory enriched T cells that can be given following standard stem cell transplant before unmanageable side effects are seen in patients with B-cell non-Hodgkin lymphoma that has returned after previous treatment. A T cell is a type of immune cell that can recognize and kill abnormal cells of the body. Central memory enriched T cells will be made from a patient's own T cells that are genetically modified in a labora...
The goal of this research is to test if the conditioning regimen, fludarabine and total body irradiation (FluTBI), can lead to a safer and more effective stem cell transplant treatment regimen for ALL patients older than 40 years of age and/or younger patients with high risk medical conditions. The primary objective is to establish the efficacy of allo HCT in older ALL patients using myeloablative FluTBI conditioning regimen. The investigators are also assessing the safety and ...
Transplant recipients have to take anti-rejection medications to prevent their immune system (the body's natural defense system against illness) from rejecting their new kidney. Most patients who get a kidney transplant must take these anti-rejection medications for the rest of their lives, or for as long as the kidney continues to work. Taking standard anti-rejection medications for a long time can cause serious side effects, including kidney damage. There would be a benefi...
The purpose of this study is to attempt to eliminate the necessity of immunosuppressive therapy for HLA-identical sibling Kidney Transplants, examine cellular chimerism of donor hematopoietic stem cell (DHSC) lineages for pairs to demonstrate immunologic unresponsiveness, and to investigate the safety and efficacy of the treatment regimen including withdrawal of immunosuppression after one year post-transplant for those recipients having received DHSC infusions.
The purpose of Phase 1b of the study is to determine the maximum tolerated dose (MTD) of oprozomib in combination with melphalan and prednisone (OMP). The purpose of Phase 2 of the study is to estimate the overall response rate (ORR) and complete response rate (CRR) of the OMP combination.
