CD34+ stem cell selection in children, adolescents and young adults receiving partially matched family donor or matched unrelated adult donor allogeneic bone marrow or peripheral blood stem cell transplant will be safe and well tolerated and be associated with a low incidence of serious (Grade III/IV) acute and chronic graft versus host disease (GVHD).
The selection of CD34+ cells is associated with the simultaneous depletion of T cells that are responsible for severe acute and chronic graft versus host disease (GVHD). Successful engraftment is reported in adult patients with malignant and non-malignant disease who received CD34+ selected stem cells from HLA-matched or mismatched mobilized peripheral blood (PBSC) or bone marrow.
Selected patients defined in the eligibility criteria will enrolled on this study. Patients will receive one of either full intensity or reduced intensity regimen based on the patient's disease status, organ function and performance and determined by the PI and will have peripheral blood undergo CD34 selection.

This research study investigates the benefits and possible risks of adding both etanercept (Enbrel) and ECP (extracorporeal photopheresis) to the conventional preventative (or prophylactic...
The purpose of this study is to determine if a reduced intensity (RI) (non-myeloablative) chemoimmunotherapy followed by Allogeneic Stem Cell Transplantation AlloSCT (matched family donors...
The purpose of this study is to compare safety and efficacy of reduced-intensity conditioning and myeloablative conditioning regimens prior to HSCT in high-risk AML/MDS pediatric and young...
The prognosis for older individuals with acute myelogenous leukemia (AML) has been historically poor, with 2 year disease-free survival rates < 20% reported. Younger patients with AML in f...
This is a study to explore the use of a reduced intensity transplant conditioning regimen. A conditioning regimen is the treatment that is given to prepare a body for the new bone marrow t...
To identify non-inferiority trials within a cohort where the experimental therapy is the same as the active control comparator but at a reduced intensity and determine if these non-inferiority trials ...
The opening-closing alternations of the mouth were viewed as the articulatory basis of speech rhythm. Such articulatory cycles have been observed to highly correlate with the intensity curve of the sp...
The aim of this study was to test the hypothesis that reduced pre-exercise carbohydrate (CHO) availability potentiates fat oxidation after an exhaustive high-intensity exercise bout. Eight physically ...
Behavioral studies investigating facial expression recognition during development have applied various methods to establish by which age emotional expressions can be recognized. Most commonly, these m...
Suspended solids (SS) and phosphorus (P) losses in rainfall generated runoff can lead to the deterioration of surface water quality. Simulated rainfall experiments were conducted to investigate the ef...
Chemical analysis based on the phenomenon whereby light, passing through a medium with dispersed particles of a different refractive index from that of the medium, is attenuated in intensity by scattering. In turbidimetry, the intensity of light transmitted through the medium, the unscattered light, is measured. In nephelometry, the intensity of the scattered light is measured, usually, but not necessarily, at right angles to the incident light beam.
CONFORMAL RADIOTHERAPY that combines several intensity-modulated beams to provide improved dose homogeneity and highly conformal dose distributions.
The adjustment of the eye to variations in the intensity of light. Light adaptation is the adjustment of the eye when the light threshold is increased; DARK ADAPTATION when the light is greatly reduced. (From Cline et al., Dictionary of Visual Science, 4th ed)

The audibility limit of discriminating sound intensity and pitch.
Pediatrics is the general medicine of childhood. Because of the developmental processes (psychological and physical) of childhood, the involvement of parents, and the social management of conditions at home and at school, pediatrics is a specialty. With ...
Osteoporosis is a disease in which the bones become extremely porous, are subject to fracture, and heal slowly, occurring especially in women following menopause and often leading to curvature of the spine from vertebral collapse. Follow and track&n...
