Pipeline Integrating Gut Metagenome Data, Host Immunogenetic Characteristics and Clinical Gut Inflammatory Biomarkers

2016-10-21 04:08:21 | BioPortfolio

Summary

The combined analysis of microbiome, immunological parameters and host genetics in patients has potential for applying personalized approaches of prevention, diagnostics or therapy in the future. However, the acquisition and analysis of these patient characteristics in a scientifically sound, technically reliable, cost-effective, practicable and future-oriented fashion are a far from trivial task. Therefore the objectives of the study are (i) to optimize a sample and data acquisition and analysis pipeline that fulfills these criteria (using samples from healthy volunteers); (ii) validate the pipeline in a cohort of children undergoing stem cell transplantation, yielding information on host immuno-genetics, gut immune function and the human gut microbiome; (iii) deduct the most critical parameters for host-microbiome interplay from this complex dataset.

Unrelated Stem Cell Transplantation for Adults With Hematopoietic Disorders

This study performs HLA matched stem cell transplantation from unrelated donors in adults who require stem cell transplantation but do not have a matched related donor available. The incid...

Chemotherapy and Peripheral Stem Cell Transplantation in Treating Patients With Multiple Myeloma

RATIONALE: Drugs used in chemotherapy use different ways to stop cancer cells from dividing so they stop growing or die. Peripheral stem cell transplantation may be able to replace immune ...

Peripheral Stem Cell Transplantation in Treating Patients With Multiple Myeloma or Other B-Cell Cancers

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

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.
