Peripheral blood stem cells (PBSCs) collected following stimulation with filgrastim are commonly used for autologous hematopoietic transplants. PBSCs are also now being used for some syngeneic and allogeneic hematopoietic transplants involving HLA-matched sibling donors. However, many issues remain unanswered about the use of PBSCs for allogeneic transplants and the effects of filgrastim on healthy individuals. The purpose of this study is to determine the effectiveness of filgrastim stimulated PBSCs in hematopoietic cell transplants involving unrelated donors and to determine the effects of this donation process on unrelated stem cell donors.
This study establishes and evaluates a system to supply peripheral blood stem cell (PBSC)products for use in unrelated donor hematopoietic stem cell (HSC) transplantation. The protocol describes processes for donor identification, education and evaluation. Procedures for administration and monitoring of the stem cell mobilizing agent filgrastim are included. The study also describes procedures for the collection of PBSC products by leukapheresis and includes provisions for indefinite donor follow-up.

Healthy People Programs are a set of health objectives to be used by governments, communities, professional organizations, and others to help develop programs to improve health. It builds on initiatives pursued over the past two decades beginning with the 1979 Surgeon General's Report, Healthy People, Healthy People 2000: National Health Promotion and Disease Prevention Objectives, and Healthy People 2010. These established national health objectives and served as the basis for the development of state and community plans. These are administered by the Office of Disease Prevention and Health Promotion (ODPHP). Similar programs are conducted by other national governments.
Governmental guidelines and objectives pertaining to public food supply and nutrition including recommendations for healthy diet and changes in food habits to ensure healthy diet.
Surgical reinnervation of a denervated peripheral target using a healthy donor nerve and/or its proximal stump. The direct connection is usually made to a healthy postlesional distal portion of a non-functioning nerve or implanted directly into denervated muscle or insensitive skin. Nerve sprouts will grow from the transferred nerve into the denervated elements and establish contact between them and the neurons that formerly controlled another area.
Process of evaluating the health of a patient and determining if they are healthy enough for surgery.
