The primary purpose is to determine the ability of CD34+ selection and T cell depletion using the CliniMACS® device to prevent severe acute graft-versus-host disease (GVHD) in patients receiving a stem cell transplant from an alternative (unrelated and mismatched related) donor. The secondary objectives include evaluation of engraftment, immune recovery, and post-transplant infections.
Patients requiring stem cell transplants for either malignant (cancerous) or non-malignant disease will be included in the study. The recipients will be grouped into one of two groups based on whether the donor is mismatched related (Cohort A) or unrelated (Cohort B). The patient will receive a conditioning regimen including chemotherapy drugs and/or total body irradiation based on the disease for which the transplant is performed.
A major issue in alternative donor (mismatched related and unrelated donor transplantation is the development of graft-versus-host disease (GVHD). Several clinical trials have shown that the use of T-cell depleted peripheral blood stem cells (PBSC) reduces GVHD in alternative donor transplants. The purpose of this study is to determine the ability of CD34 positive selection and T cell depletion using the CliniMACS® Device as the only GVHD prophylaxis to prevent severe acute GVHD in recipients of an alternative donor PBSC transplant. Mismatched related donors will match at least 3 of 6 HLA antigens (haplocompatible) and unrelated donors will match at least 6 out of 8 HLA antigens with the transplant recipient. The conditioning therapy including chemotherapy, anti-thymocyte globulin (ATG), +/- total body irradiation (TBI) will be based on the patient's diagnosis. The transplant recipient will be followed for 5 years after transplant for GVHD, engraftment, post-transplant infections, disease relapse, and overall survival. In addition, this study will serve as a platform for a companion study of therapy to accelerate immune recovery after transplant.

Myelofibrosis is associated with a wide variety of neoplastic and non-neoplastic bone marrow diseases, predominately myeloproliferative neoplasms and acute myeloid leukemia. The following case documen...
Acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL) in adults is an invariably aggressive and rare disease. Its treatment is based on the use of multidrug regimens, which have been improved since the 1970s. Few publis...
We undertook a single-center retrospective study to determine the relationship between CD9 and acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL).

To determine whether methylation differences between mostly fatal TCF3-HLF and curable TCF3-PBX1 pediatric acute lymphoblastic leukemia subtypes can be associated with differential gene expression and...
A pyrimidine nucleoside analog that is used mainly in the treatment of leukemia, especially acute non-lymphoblastic leukemia. Cytarabine is an antimetabolite antineoplastic agent that inhibits the synthesis of DNA. Its actions are specific for the S phase of the cell cycle. It also has antiviral and immunosuppressant properties. (From Martindale, The Extra Pharmacopoeia, 30th ed, p472)
A leukemia/lymphoma found predominately in children and adolescents and characterized by a high number of lymphoblasts and solid tumor lesions. Frequent sites involve LYMPH NODES, skin, and bones. It most commonly presents as leukemia.
A tyrosine kinase inhibitor and ANTINEOPLASTIC AGENT that inhibits the BCR-ABL kinase created by chromosome rearrangements in CHRONIC MYELOID LEUKEMIA and ACUTE LYMPHOBLASTIC LEUKEMIA, as well as PDG-derived tyrosine kinases that are overexpressed in gastrointestinal stromal tumors.
An acute leukemia exhibiting cell features characteristic of both the myeloid and lymphoid lineages and probably arising from MULTIPOTENT STEM CELLS.
A leukemia/lymphoma found predominately in children and young adults and characterized LYMPHADENOPATHY and THYMUS GLAND involvement. It most frequently presents as a lymphoma, but a leukemic progression in the bone marrow is common.
Organ transplantation is the moving of an organ from one body to another or from a donor site to another location on the patient's own body, for the purpose of replacing the recipient's damaged or absent organ. The emerging field of regenerative ...
