PURPOSE: Phase I trial to study the effectiveness of bone marrow and peripheral stem cell transplantation in treating patients who have hematologic cancer.
- Determine the toxicity of unmanipulated bone marrow augmented with CD34+ enriched peripheral blood stem cells in patients with hematologic malignancies undergoing allogeneic transplantation.
- Evaluate this treatment regimen in terms of kinetics of hematopoietic engraftment, infection, severity of graft-vs-host disease, relapse rate, and cost effectiveness in this patient population.
OUTLINE: Patients undergo allogeneic transplantation comprising unmanipulated bone marrow with filgrastim (G-CSF)-mobilized, CD34+ enriched peripheral blood stem cells on day 0.
Patients receive graft-vs-host disease prophylaxis comprising cyclosporine IV over 24 hours on day -1 and methylprednisolone IV or oral prednisone daily on days 7-65. Patients also receive G-CSF subcutaneously daily until blood counts recover.
Patients are followed weekly for 3 months, at 6 months and 1 year, and then annually for 5 years.
PROJECTED ACCRUAL: A total of 30-60 patients will be accrued for this study.

OBJECTIVES: I. Provide curative immunoreconstituting allogeneic bone marrow transplantation for patients with primary immunodeficiencies. II. Determine relevant outcomes of this treatme...
RATIONALE: Bone marrow from donors may be able to treat patients with severe aplastic anemia and patients whose bodies have rejected previous bone marrow transplantation. PURPOSE: Phase I...
RATIONALE: Bone marrow transplantation may be able to replace immune cells that were destroyed by chemotherapy or radiation therapy used to kill cancer cells. PURPOSE: Randomized phase II...
RATIONALE: Bone marrow that has been treated to remove certain white blood cells may reduce the chance of developing graft-versus-host disease following bone marrow transplantation. PURPO...
RATIONALE: Drugs used in chemotherapy use different ways to stop tumor cells from dividing so they stop growing or die. Combining chemotherapy with bone marrow transplantation may allow th...
Human recombinant G-CSF reduces the duration of neutropenia following HLA-identical allogeneic bone marrow transplantation. However, its use remains controversial due to the risk of increasing the inc...
Paroxysmal nocturnal hemoglobinuria (PNH) often develops secondary to other bone marrow failure (BMF) disorders, especially aplastic anemia (AA). Patients with the AA/PNH syndrome may require treatmen...
Comparative analysis of calcineurin-inhibitor-based methotrexate and mycophenolate mofetil-containing regimens for prevention of Graft-versus-Host Disease after reduced intensity conditioning allogeneic transplantation.
The combination of calcineurin inhibitor (CNI) such as tacrolimus (TAC) or cyclosporine (CYSP) with methotrexate (MTX) or with mycophenolate mofetil (MMF) has been commonly used for Graft-versus-Host ...
Although donation of bone marrow (BM) or peripheral blood stem cells (PBSC) from children to family members undergoing allogeneic transplantation are well-established procedures, studies detailing lev...
Techniques for the removal of subpopulations of cells (usually residual tumor cells) from the bone marrow ex vivo before it is infused. The purging is achieved by a variety of agents including pharmacologic agents, biophysical agents (laser photoirradiation or radioisotopes) and immunologic agents. Bone marrow purging is used in both autologous and allogeneic BONE MARROW TRANSPLANTATION.
Agents that destroy bone marrow activity. They are used to prepare patients for BONE MARROW TRANSPLANTATION or STEM CELL TRANSPLANTATION.
The transference of BONE MARROW from one human or animal to another for a variety of purposes including HEMATOPOIETIC STEM CELL TRANSPLANTATION or MESENCHYMAL STEM CELL TRANSPLANTATION.
Transfer of HEMATOPOIETIC STEM CELLS from BONE MARROW or BLOOD between individuals within the same species (TRANSPLANTATION, HOMOLOGOUS) or transfer within the same individual (TRANSPLANTATION, AUTOLOGOUS). Hematopoietic stem cell transplantation has been used as an alternative to BONE MARROW TRANSPLANTATION in the treatment of a variety of neoplasms.
Preparative treatment of transplant recipient with various conditioning regimens including radiation, immune sera, chemotherapy, and/or immunosuppressive agents, prior to transplantation. Transplantation conditioning is very common before bone marrow transplantation.
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...
Organ transplantation is the moving of an organ from one body to another or from a donor site to another location on the patient's own body, for the purpose of replacing the recipient's damaged or absent organ. The emerging field of regenerative ...
