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.

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...
Fanconi anemia is a rare genetic disease linked to bone marrow failure; a possible treatment is hematopoietic stem cell transplantation. Changes in the nutritional status of Fanconi anemia patients ar...
To evaluate the efficiency and safety of low intensity conditional regimen for children with Fanconi anemia (FA) receiving allogenic hematopoietic stem cells transplantation (allo-HSCT).Four patients ...
Fanconi anemia (FA) is an autosomal recessive, progressive bone marrow failure disorder characterized by congenital defects and marked cancer predisposition. Hematopoietic stem cell transplant is the ...
Fanconi anemia is a rare chromosome instability disorder with a highly variable phenotype. In the antenatal and neonatal periods, the diagnosis is usually suggested by the presence of typical congenit...
Individuals with Fanconi anemia (FA) have a high risk of developing myelodysplastic syndrome (MDS) and acute myeloid leukemia (AML), yet the secondary somatic mutations lending to these malignancies r...
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 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.
A Fanconi anemia complementation group protein that regulates the activities of CYTOCHROME P450 REDUCTASE and GLUTATHIONE S-TRANSFERASE. It is found predominately in the CYTOPLASM, but moves to the CELL NUCLEUS in response to FANCE 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...
