Unrelated Umbilical Cord Blood Transplantation With Coinfusion of Mesenchymal Stem Cells

2014-08-27 03:15:03 | BioPortfolio


A pilot study to assess the feasibility of unrelated umbilical cord blood transplantation with coinfusion of third-party mesenchymal stem cells after myeloablative or nonmyeloablative conditioning in patients with hematological malignancies.

This is a multicenter single arm, phase I-II pilot study. The primary objective of this study is to determine the feasibility of UCB HSCT with co-infusion of third party mesenchymal stem cells as assessed by the treatment-related mortality at d100 after transplant.

Patient inclusion criteria:

Age 15-60 yrs Patients for whom allogeneic stem cell transplantation is the preferred treatment option, with the following hematological malignancies:acute myeloid leukemia, acute lymphoblastic leukemia, high risk myelodysplastic syndrome, advanced lymphoproliferative disorders, chronic myeloid leukemia (refractory or intolerant to second-line tyrosine kinase inhibitors), multiple myeloma Informed consent given Patient exclusion criteria Previous allogeneic transplant Progressive malignant disease Significant organ damage as a contraindication to allotransplantation Significant psychiatric or neurological disorder Uncontrolled viral, fungal or bacterial infection Pregnancy HIV positive Patients will receive either myeloablative or reduced intensity conditioning. One or 2 cord blood transplants will be transplanted, followed by infusion of a third-party mesenchymal stem cell transplant Adverse event reporting BHS transplant committee will establish a protocol review committee which will organize a central monitoring of the study. Within the context of allogeneic HSCTx many severe events are likely to occur.

Statistics and stopping rules The trial will be stopped at any time that there is reasonable evidence that the true rate of day +100 nonrelapse mortality exceeds 0.40. It is the intention to include an initial 20 patients.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Transplantation of STEM CELLS collected from the fetal blood remaining in the UMBILICAL CORD and the PLACENTA after delivery. Included are the HEMATOPOIETIC STEM CELLS.

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.

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.

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.

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.
