People with acute Graft versus Host Disease (GVHD are asked to participate in a research study being conducted by Montefiore Medical Center

Phase N/A

G-CSF Moblized Peripheral Harvest for Poor Engraftment After Stem Cell Transplantation

Poor graft function (PGF) is a common complication after allogeneic stem cell transplantation, which was associated with high mortality. The pathogenesis fo PGF was poorly understood. Infusion of donor peripheral cell harvest was effective for some patients with PGF in our preliminary study.The peripheral cell harvest was aphaeresis on the ...

Phase N/A

Topical Vitamin D in Acute Graft Versus Host Disease of the Skin

Acute skin GVHD affects about one third of pediatric and adult transplant recipients. Chronic GVHD (cGVHD) affects 40-60% of adult patients who have undergone allogeneic HSCT. It is a major cause of non-relapse mortality and morbidity. Systemic prednisone is the first-line treatment for cGVHD; however, about one-half of all patients ...

Phase N/A

Vulvovaginal Graft Versus Host Disease (VV-GVHD) in Women Who Underwent Transplantation Before and After Menarche

The phenomenon of vulvovaginal graft versus host disease (VV-GVHD) following hematopoietic stem cell transplantation (HSCT) was first described in 1982 [Corson]. It is characterized by vulvovaginal inflammation, scarring, adhesions and might end with complete vaginal obliteration. Hematopoietic stem cells source for the allogeneic transplantation was found to affect the incidence ...

Phase N/A

Dendritic Cells in Patients With Acute or Chronic Skin Graft Versus Host Disease

Dendritic cells (DCs) serve as sentries for the immune system. DCs recognize foreign compounds (antigens) in the body, which they internalize and process. When DCs uptake foreign antigens, they migrate to secondary lymphoid organs, where the processed antigens are presented to T cells. Various DC subsets with unique cell lineages, ...

Phase N/A

The Influence of TaKeTiNa Music Therapy Traditional Chinese Acupuncture and Clown Theatrical Performance on Quality of Life and the Therapeutic Process of Patients Undergoing Allogenic Stem Cell Transplantation

The allogenic stem cell transplantation (aSCT) is still the only curative approach for many hematological diseases. Despite new therapeutic developments in the past few years, the therapy-associated mortality rate is around 20%. Patients develop a Graft versus Host Disease (GvHD) in 30-70% of the cases, some with persistent, severe progression ...

Phase N/A

Changes in the Gut Microbiota of Patients Undergoing Allogeneic Stem Cell Transplantation (COLLECT)

Documentation of patient is performed by using the web-based survey platform www.ClinicalSurveys.net which was set up by researchers of the University Hospital of Cologne. This survey platform enables an optimal performance in epidemiological, observational, and interventional trials and is characterized by layered access security and frequent data backup. It has ...

Phase N/A

Chronic GVHD Response Measures Validation

The purpose of this study is to develop and validate endpoint measures that can accurately determine whether patients are responding to treatment for chronic Graft-versus-Host Disease (GVHD). Hopefully, this will also lead to being better able to predict which patients will respond to what therapies.

Phase N/A

Ocular Surface Disease in Chronic Graft-Versus-Host Disease (GVHD) Patients

Dry eye is a multi-factorial disease that is frequently encountered in ophthalmological practice. Common dry eye symptoms include eye irritation, heaviness of the eyelids, blurred vision and light sensitivity (1). The worldwide prevalence of dry eye is generally high (2-4). In Asia, dry eye may affect up to 22% of ...

Phase N/A

Prevention of GVHD in Patients Treated With Allogeneic SCT: Possible Role of Extracorporeal Photophoresis

Allogeneic stem cell transplantation represents the only available long-term control and possible cure of a number of hematological malignancies. A major obstacle to this treatment is the development of graft-versus-host disease (GVHD), affecting the majority of transplanted patients to some extent. Today, combinations of various cytotoxic and immunosuppressive drugs are ...
