PURPOSE: Phase I/II trial to study the effectiveness of RevM10-treated stem cells plus chemotherapy and peripheral stem cell transplantation in treating patients who have HIV-related non-Hodgkin's lymphoma.
OBJECTIVES: I. Determine the safety of infusion of RevM10 or RevM10/polAS transduced hematopoietic stem cells (HSC) in addition to high dose chemotherapy and standard peripheral blood stem cell support in patients with HIV-1 related non-Hodgkin's lymphoma. II. Determine gene marking of lymphocytes and myeloid cells in peripheral blood, bone marrow, and/or lymph nodes after infusion of RevM10-HSC or RevM10/polAS-HSC in these patients. III. Determine the antiretroviral effect of this treatment in these patients.
OUTLINE: This is a multicenter study. Patients receive mobilization therapy and undergo leukapheresis according to a standard protocol. High dose chemotherapy is administered on days -7 to -1, also according to a standard protocol. On day 0, autologous hematopoietic stem cells transduced with genes RevM10 or RevM10/polAS are infused. Unmodified autologous peripheral blood stem cells are reinfused on day 1. Patients are followed daily for 2 weeks, weekly for 2 weeks, monthly for 1 year, then annually thereafter.
PROJECTED ACCRUAL: Approximately 15 patients will be accrued for this study within 14 months.
Primary Purpose: Treatment
RevM10 gene, RevM10/polAS gene, in vitro-treated peripheral blood stem cell transplantation, peripheral blood stem cell transplantation

The purpose of the study is to investigate in vivo whether a high-dose vitamin D3 oral bolus (2000 micrograms) produces marked vitamin D receptor target gene expression response and whethe...
The purpose of this study is to see if it is safe and effective to use gene therapy to treat non-Hodgkin's lymphoma (NHL) in HIV-positive patients. Stem cell transplantation is a procedur...
This study will look for new types of gene changes that may be related to cancer in some patients. Some gene changes (mutations) are passed on from parents to offspring (child). Other gene...

The aim of our study was to investigate possible associations between three SNPs: rs4673 in the CYBA gene; rs1041740 in the SOD1 gene; and rs1001179 in the CAT gene, and type 1 diabetes (T1D) or diabe...
Gene therapy - from idea to reality Gene therapy was originally proposed 45 years ago, but it is only during the last 5-10 years that significant clinical benefit has been demonstrated. Gene therapy i...

Gene correction at specific target loci provides a powerful strategy to overcome genetic diseases. Here we aimed at using an in vitro model for canine hemophilia B containing a single point mutation i...
The GENETIC RECOMBINATION of the parts of two or more GENES resulting in a gene with different or additional regulatory regions, or a new chimeric gene product. ONCOGENE FUSION includes an ONCOGENE as at least one of the fusion partners and such gene fusions are often detected in neoplastic cells and are transcribed into ONCOGENE FUSION PROTEINS. ARTIFICIAL GENE FUSION is carried out in vitro by RECOMBINANT DNA technology.
The number of copies of a given gene present in the cell of an organism. An increase in gene dosage (by GENE DUPLICATION for example) can result in higher levels of gene product formation. GENE DOSAGE COMPENSATION mechanisms result in adjustments to the level GENE EXPRESSION when there are changes or differences in gene dosage.
The introduction of new genes into cells for the purpose of treating disease by restoring or adding gene expression. Techniques include insertion of retroviral vectors, transfection, homologous recombination, and injection of new genes into the nuclei of single cell embryos. The entire gene therapy process may consist of multiple steps. The new genes may be introduced into proliferating cells in vivo (e.g., bone marrow) or in vitro (e.g., fibroblast cultures) and the modified cells transferred to the site where the gene expression is required. Gene therapy may be particularly useful for treating enzyme deficiency diseases, hemoglobinopathies, and leukemias and may also prove useful in restoring drug sensitivity, particularly for leukemia.
The use of techniques that produce a functional MUTATION or an effect on GENE EXPRESSION of a specific gene of interest in order to identify the role or activity of the gene product of that gene.
The in vitro fusion of GENES by RECOMBINANT DNA techniques to analyze protein behavior or GENE EXPRESSION REGULATION, or to merge protein functions for specific medical or industrial uses.

Cancer is not just one disease but many diseases. There are more than 100 different types of cancer. Most cancers are named for the organ or type of cell in which they start - for example, cancer that begins in the colon is called colon cancer; cancer th...
