Haploidentical Allogeneic Transplant w/Post Transplant Infusion of Regulatory T-cells (BMT Protocol 204)

2014-07-23 21:11:04 | BioPortfolio

Summary

When a match related or matched unrelated donor is not available a Haploidentical donor (parent, sibling or child)is immediately available. The challenges associated with haploidentical HCT include increased risk of GVHD, graft rejection and impaired immune reconstitution. This trial will evaluate the safety and feasibility of simultaneous administration of conventional T cells and regulatory T cells after haploidentical allogeneic hematopoietic cell transplantation to overcome these challenges.

Stem Cell Transplant With Specially Treated Cells in Treating Patients With Acute Leukemia

An autologous peripheral stem cell or bone marrow transplant may be able to replace blood-forming cells that were destroyed by chemotherapy. Using stem cells or bone marrow cells that are ...

Filgrastim-Treated Donor Peripheral Stem Cell Transplantation in Treating Patients With Acute Leukemia

RATIONALE: Transplanted peripheral stem cells can sometimes be rejected by the body's tissues. Treating donor peripheral stem cells with filgrastim may increase the number of donor white b...

Donor Peripheral Stem Cell Transplant in Treating Patients With Relapsed Acute Myeloid Leukemia

RATIONALE: Giving chemotherapy before a donor peripheral blood stem cell transplant helps stop the growth of cancer cells. It also helps stop the patient's immune system from rejecting the...

Clofarabine and Melphalan Before Donor Stem Cell Transplant in Treating Patients With Myelodysplasia or Acute Leukemia in Remission

This phase II trial studies how well clofarabine and melphalan before a donor stem cell transplant works in treating patients with a decrease in or disappearance of signs and symptoms of m...

Fludarabine and Cyclophosphamide Followed by Peripheral Stem Cell Transplant in Treating Patients With Leukemia or Lymphoma

RATIONALE: Giving chemotherapy drugs, such as fludarabine and cyclophosphamide, before a donor peripheral blood stem cell transplant helps stop the growth of cancer cells. It also helps st...

Leukemia cells impair normal hematopoiesis and induce functionally loss of hematopoietic stem cells through immune cells and inflammation.

Bone marrow (BM) failure is often seen in leukemia patients, indicating an abnormal hematopoietic process. However, hematopoiesis in leukemic milieus is largely unknown. In the present study, we utili...

Regulation of DNA methylation and tumor suppression gene expression by miR-29b in leukemia patients and related mechanisms.

Leukemia is characterized as a kind of malignant clonal disease in hematological stem cells. The study showed an abnormal level of DNA methylation in leukemia cells, which further led to an abnormal e...

Nucleostemin silencing induces differentiation and potentiates all-trans-retinoic acid effects in human acute promyelocytic leukemia NB4 cells via autophagy.

Here, we report that targeting Nucleostemin (NS), a recently discovered stem cells-enriched gene, by a specific small interference RNA (siNS), decreases the rate of proliferation of acute promyelocyti...

Immunotherapy for acute myeloid leukemia (AML): a potent alternative therapy.

The standard therapy of AML for many years has been chemotherapy with or without stem transplantation. However, there has not been any tangible improvement in this treatment beyond induction through c...

K562 chronic myeloid leukemia cells modify osteogenic differentiation and gene expression of bone marrow stromal cells.

Bone marrow (BM) microenvironment plays an important role in normal and malignant hematopoiesis. As a consequence of interaction with the leukemic cells, the stromal cells of the bone marrow become de...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Specialized stem cells that are committed to give rise to cells that have a particular function; examples are MYOBLASTS; MYELOID PROGENITOR CELLS; and skin stem cells. (Stem Cells: A Primer [Internet]. Bethesda (MD): National Institutes of Health (US); 2000 May [cited 2002 Apr 5]. Available from: http://www.nih.gov/news/stemcell/primer.htm)

An acute leukemia exhibiting cell features characteristic of both the myeloid and lymphoid lineages and probably arising from MULTIPOTENT STEM CELLS.

Clonal hematopoetic disorder caused by an acquired genetic defect in PLURIPOTENT STEM CELLS. It starts in MYELOID CELLS of the bone marrow, invades the blood and then other organs. The condition progresses from a stable, more indolent, chronic phase (LEUKEMIA, MYELOID, CHRONIC PHASE) lasting up to 7 years, to an advanced phase composed of an accelerated phase (LEUKEMIA, MYELOID, ACCELERATED PHASE) and BLAST CRISIS.

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.

Bone-marrow-derived, non-hematopoietic cells that support HEMATOPOETIC STEM CELLS. They have also been isolated from other organs and tissues such as UMBILICAL CORD BLOOD, umbilical vein subendothelium, and WHARTON JELLY. These cells are considered to be a source of multipotent stem cells because they include subpopulations of mesenchymal stem cells.
