Dexamethasone to Prevent Oral Chronic Graft-versus-Host Disease

Prevention of oral chronic graft verusu host disease (GVHD) by topical agents is an attractive strategy because it would potentially avoid the adverse effects associated with systemic immunosuppression. Topically administered dexamethasone solution is a commonly used agent for the prophylaxis of oral inflammatory conditions including GVHD. However, the efficacy and ...

Phase

Donor Peripheral Blood Stem Cell Transplant in Treating Patients With Hematologic Cancer or Other Disease

OBJECTIVES: - Determine the overall survival rate at day 200 in patients with hematologic cancers or other diseases who undergo allogeneic peripheral blood stem cell transplantation using the CliniMACS® CD34 Reagent System for T-cell depletion followed by delayed T-cell add-back. - Determine the safety of this regimen, in terms of ...

Phase

Treatment of Refractory (Acute or Chronic) Graft-Versus-Host Disease by the Infusion of Expanded in-Vitro Allogenic Mesenchymal Stem Cell

This is a multicenter, single dose study of allogenic mesenchymal stem cell (1-2 x 10^6 MSC/Kg recipient´s bodyweight). MSC will be infused, by a central venous catheter, to patients diagnosed with GVHD refractory to first-line or subsequent treatment. All patients will receive the same treatment. MSC suspension will be obtained ...

Phase

Dendritic Cells in Patients Following Allogeneic Hematopoietic Stem Cell Transplantation

Blood and skin DC reconstitution shall be investigated in patients affected by hematological diseases and receiving HLA-matched, mobilized peripheral blood stem cells from related or unrelated donors. We plan to simultaneously collect and process double biopsies, i.e. from graft versus host disease affected and non-lesional skin of patients at onset ...

Phase N/A

Early Diagnosis of Aspergillosis in Patients at High Risk of Fungal Infection Caused by Treatment for Hematologic Cancer or Other Disease

OBJECTIVES: Primary - Determine the test characteristics of galactomannan (GM) ELISA using serum and bronchoalveolar lavage fluid (BALF) collected from patients at high risk of invasive fungal infection. - Determine the test characteristics of aspergillus PCR using blood and BALF samples collected from these patients. - Evaluate the role of ...

Phase N/A

Basiliximab for the Treatment of Acute Graft-versus-host Disease After Allogeneic Stem Cell Transplantation

Graft-versus-host disease (GVHD) contributes substantially to transplant-related morbidity and mortality. Steroids remains first line therapy for acute GVHD but there is currently no consensus on second line therapy for those in whom steroids have been ineffective. Basiliximab has been shown to be a safe and effective immunosuppresant in the prevention ...

Phase N/A

Mycophenolate Mofetil for the Prophylaxis of Graft-versus-host Disease in High Risk Allogeneic Stem Cell Transplantation

There is a significant (50-80%) risk of acute graft-versus-host disease(GVHD) and early mortality (30%) associated with high risk stem cell transplantation (SCT) such as that from a matched unrelated donor or HLA-mismatch sibling. Mycophenolate mofetil (MMF) has been shown to be an effective and safe immunosuppressant in the prevention and ...

Phase N/A

Measurements of Resting Energy Expenditure in Patients With or at Risk of Developing Graft Versus Host Disease

Chronic Graft versus Host Disease (GVHD) is an important cause of morbidity and mortality in patients undergoing allogeneic bone marrow and hematopoietic progenitor cell transplantation. In adults, it has been shown that patients with acute or chronic GVHD have an increase in their resting energy expenditure (REE), likely as a ...

Phase N/A

Development and Validation of a Symptom Scale for Children With Chronic Graft-Versus-Host Disease

A large number of children with cGVHD have to deal with many years of a disfiguring and painful chronic illness with the side effects of long term steroid use. The number of stem cell transplants done in children is only growing given that we are now transplanting patients with a ...
