The goal of this clinical research study is to test the safety of giving clofarabine in combination with busulfan, followed by an allogeneic (from a donor) stem cell transplant, in patient...
This study will test the combination of clofarabine, cytarabine, and thymoglobulin as a non-myeloablative conditioning regimen for patients with myelodysplastic syndromes or acute myeloid ...
The study hypotheses is that the introduction of dose escalated thiotepa, in substitution to busulfan or melphalan, will reduce toxicity after allogeneic transplantation while improving di...
RATIONALE: Giving chemotherapy, such as clofarabine, melphalan, and thiotepa, before a donor stem cell transplant helps stop the growth of cancer or abnormal cells. It also helps stop the ...
Allogeneic Stem Cell Transplant With Clofarabine, Busulfan and Antithymocyte Globulin (ATG) for Adult Patients With High-risk Acute Myeloid Leukemia/Myelodysplastic Syndromes (AML/MDS) or Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia (ALL)
Clofarabine is known to have a stronger anti-tumor effect than Fludarabine and has shown its efficacy in treating aggressive acute leukemias. In addition, evidence is that it is well-toler...
The optimal intensity of myeloablation with a reduced-toxicity conditioning regimen to decrease relapse rate after allogeneic stem-cell transplantation without increasing transplant-related mortality ...
Sequential Conditioning with Thiotepa in T-Cell Replete Hematopoietic Stem Cell Transplantation for the Treatment of Refractory Hematological Malignancies: Comparison with Matched Related, Haplo-Mismatched and Unrelated Donors.
The results of conventional allogeneic stem cell transplantation (SCT) in refractory hematological malignancies are poor. Sequential strategies have shown promising results in refractory acute myeloid...
Busulfan is commonly used as a conditioning regimen before hematological stem cell transplantation (HSCT). There is a big inter-individual variability in busulfan exposure and the narrow therapeutic i...
Adenovirus (ADV) reactivation can cause significant morbidity and mortality in children after allogeneic stem cell transplantation. Antiviral drugs can control viremia, but viral clearance requires re...
Pre-transplantation serum ferritin (SF) has been considered to be a potential prognostic biomarker in patients undergoing allogeneic hematopoietic stem cell transplantation (allogeneic HSCT), but this...
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.
The transfer of STEM CELLS from one individual to another within the same species (TRANSPLANTATION, HOMOLOGOUS) or between species (XENOTRANSPLANTATION), or transfer within the same individual (TRANSPLANTATION, AUTOLOGOUS). The source and location of the stem cells determines their potency or pluripotency to differentiate into various cell types.
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 MESENCHYMAL STEM CELLS between individuals within the same species (TRANSPLANTATION, HOMOLOGOUS) or transfer within the same individual (TRANSPLANTATION, AUTOLOGOUS).
Transplantation of stem cells collected from the peripheral blood. It is a less invasive alternative to direct marrow harvesting of hematopoietic stem cells. Enrichment of stem cells in peripheral blood can be achieved by inducing mobilization of stem cells from the BONE MARROW.
