II. Determine the efficacy of this treatment regimen in this patient population.
III. Evaluate the effect of this treatment regimen on bone marrow progenitor cell proliferation and peripheral blood mononuclear cell apoptosis in these patients.
This is a dose escalation study.
Patients receive amifostine IV over 3-5 minutes three times a week for three weeks.
Cohorts of 3 patients receive one of three dose levels of amifostine. The maximum tolerated dose is defined as the dose preceding that at which 2 of 6 patients experience dose limiting toxicity.
Patients are followed weekly for 3 weeks.

RATIONALE: Studying samples of bone marrow from patients with Fanconi anemia and from healthy participants in the laboratory may help doctors learn more about changes that occur in DNA and...
The purpose of this research study is to evaluate the safety of the drug Etanercept (Enbrel) and to determine if this drug can help in the treatment of early bone marrow failure in patient...
RATIONALE: Collecting and storing samples of tumor tissue from patients with Fanconi anemia to test in the laboratory may help the study of cancer in the future. PURPOSE: This laboratory ...
This is a single institution, open-label, single arm pilot study of Metformin in patients with Fanconi Anemia (FA) and cytopenias with the primary endpoint of hematologic response. This st...
The purpose of this research study is to determine whether an experimental drug called AMD3100 used in combination with another medication called G-CSF is safe and can help to increase the...
USP48 May Be Potential Therapeutic Target in Fanconi Anemia: Inactivation of USP48 reduced chromosomal instability of Fanconi anemia defective cells and highlights a role for this enzyme in controlling DNA repair.
Fanconi anemia (FA) is associated with an increased risk of developing head and neck squamous cell cancer (HNSCC) and presents a treatment dilemma due to concerns of increased toxicities from chemothe...
A unique consanguineous family with 2 genomic instability disorders, Fanconi anemia and ataxia telangiectasia, revealed exceptional combinations of null mutations in the FANCA and ATM genes. Two sibli...
Fanconi anemia (FA) is a complex tumor-prone disease defined by an entangled genotype and phenotype. Despite enormous efforts in the last 20 years, a comprehensive and integrated view of the disease i...
Fanconi anemia (FA) is a rare genetic disease usually characterized by bone marrow failure and congenital malformations. The risk of development of malignancies in the oral cavity of FA patients, such...
A Fanconi anemia complementation group protein that undergoes PHOSPHORYLATION by CDC2 PROTEIN KINASE during MITOSIS. It forms a complex with other FANCONI ANEMIA PROTEINS and helps protect CELLS from DNA DAMAGE by genotoxic agents.
A Fanconi anemia complementation group protein that is the most commonly mutated protein in FANCONI ANEMIA. It undergoes PHOSPHORYLATION by PROTEIN KINASE B and forms a complex with FANCC PROTEIN in the CELL NUCLEUS.
A Fanconi anemia complementation group protein that contains an N-terminal DNA-binding region and seven, C-terminal, WD REPEATS. It is an essential factor in HOMOLOGOUS RECOMBINATION DNA REPAIR through its interactions with BRCA2 PROTEIN; RAD51 RECOMBINASE; and BRCA1 PROTEIN. It functions as a molecular scaffold to localize and stabilize these proteins at homologous recombination sites. Mutations in the PALB2 gene are associated with FANCONI ANEMIA complementation group N; type 3 PANCREATIC NEOPLASMS; and susceptibility to BREAST CANCER.
A diverse group of proteins whose genetic MUTATIONS have been associated with the chromosomal instability syndrome FANCONI ANEMIA. Many of these proteins play important roles in protecting CELLS against OXIDATIVE STRESS.
An E3 UBIQUITIN LIGASE that plays a key role in the DNA damage response pathway of FANCONI ANEMIA PROTEINS. It is associated with mono-ubiquitination of FANCD2 PROTEIN and the redistribution of FANCD2 to nuclear foci containing BRCA1 PROTEIN.
Osteoporosis is a disease in which the bones become extremely porous, are subject to fracture, and heal slowly, occurring especially in women following menopause and often leading to curvature of the spine from vertebral collapse. Follow and track&n...
Blood is a specialized bodily fluid that delivers necessary substances to the body's cells (in animals) – such as nutrients and oxygen – and transports waste products away from those same cells. In vertebrates, it is composed of blo...
