Yttrium-90-labeled Daclizumab With Chemotherapy and Stem Cell Transplant for Hodgkin s Lymphoma

Background: - Hodgkin s lymphoma (HL) is a highly treatable cancer. However, if HL does not respond to chemotherapy or returns after chemotherapy, further treatments often are not successful. - Some HL cells have a molecule called CD25 on the surface. Daclizumab is a drug that can detect CD25 on cells. In a treatment study for HL that did not respond to chemotherapy, daclizumab plus a radioactive atom called Yttrium 90 helped kill these HL ce...

Mismatched Family Member Donor Transplantation for Children and Young Adults With High Risk Hematological Malignancies

Blood and marrow stem cell transplant has improved the outcome for patients with high-risk hematologic malignancies. However, most patients do not have an appropriate HLA (immune type) matched sibling donor available and/or are unable to identify an acceptable unrelated HLA matched donor through the registries in a timely manner. Another option is haploidentical transplant using a partially matched family member donor. Although haploidentical transplant has proven curative i...

Hematopoietic Stem Cell Transplant for Sickle Cell Disease

This is a phase I/II study of patients with sickle cell disease. It aims to find out if people with sickle cell disease can be cured by changing their immune system before they have blood stem cell transplants. Doctors will give patients a new drug (fludarabine) to see if this drug changes patients immune system and reduces the patient's cells (host) from rejecting donor cells (graft) after the patient gets a Hematopoietic (blood) stem cell transplant.

Antithymocyte Globulin, Clofarabine, and Rituximab in Treating Patients After an Unsuccessful Stem Cell Transplant

RATIONALE: Antithymocyte globulin, clofarabine, and rituximab may stop the patient's immune system from rejecting the donor's stem cells when they do not exactly match the patient's blood. The donated stem cells may replace the patient's immune cells and help destroy any remaining cancer cells (graft-versus-tumor effect). Sometimes the transplanted cells from a donor can also make an immune response against the body's normal cells. Giving antithymocyte globulin before transplan...

Pulsed Perfusion for Marginal Kidneys

Trends in organ donor pool are characterized by an increasing age and a shift towards cerebrovascular diseases as primary causes of death. As a result, donors older than 60 years nowadays represent more than one fourth of the entire donor pool in Italy. This, along with an increasing number of patients on the waiting list for transplantation, prompted a growing use of organs from subjects older than 60 years that would have been considered unsuitable years ago. To improve graft...

Busulfan, Cyclophosphamide, and Melphalan or Busulfan and Fludarabine Phosphate Before Donor Hematopoietic Cell Transplant in Treating Younger Patients With Juvenile Myelomonocytic Leukemia

This randomized phase II trial studies how well giving busulfan, cyclophosphamide, and melphalan or busulfan and fludarabine phosphate before donor hematopoietic cell transplant works in treating younger patients with juvenile myelomonocytic leukemia. Giving chemotherapy before a donor hematopoietic transplant helps stop the growth of 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 in...

Safety Study of ADV-specific T-cells in Paediatric Patients Post Allo-HSCT

Human Adenovirus-specific T-cells can persist and augment impaired adenovirus immune response post allogeneic haematopoietic stem cell transplant, and reduce the requirement for antiviral therapy without toxicity or increasing the occurrence of Graft Versus Host Disease. This is a Phase I/IIa open-label safety study, assessing the effects of administering adenovirus-specific T-cells (Cytovir ADV) to paediatric patients post haematopoietic stem cell transplant.

Confocal Fluorescence Microscopy of the Human Airways in Diagnostics of Lung Transplantation

Bronchoscopy-guided tissue sampling is a central technique in many diseases including diagnosing and staging lung cancers, diagnosing interstitial lung diseases, and acute and/or chronic rejections following lung transplantation. Confocal fluorescence microscopy is a novel technique used for real-time microscopic imaging of proximal and distal airways, microvessels, and inflammatory cells. We hypothesize that confocal fluorescence microscopy images of airways and alveolar stru...
