RESULTS

Found (126) clinical trials

The goal of the OPTIMAL study is to gradually reduce anti-rejection medication(s) in liver transplant recipients over a period of time until the medication(s) are stopped. This is called immunosuppression withdrawal. As part of the OPTIMAL study, investigators will also do blood and liver biopsy tests to see whether they ...

Phase N/A

The main focus of this study is to develop blood and/or urine tests that will help to detect early signs of rejection in people who have had a liver transplant. Researchers will examine blood, urine, and tissue samples and try to identify markers for certain conditions such as rejection, response ...

Phase N/A

Combination Chemotherapy With or Without Peripheral Stem Cell Transplantation Radiation Therapy and/or Surgery in Treating Patients With Ewing's Sarcoma

OBJECTIVES: Primary - Compare the event-free and overall survival of patients with tumor of the Ewing's family treated with standard induction chemotherapy comprising vincristine, dactinomycin, ifosfamide and etoposide (VIDE) followed by consolidation chemotherapy comprising vincristine, dactinomycin, and ifosfamide versus high-dose busulfan and melphalan (Bu-Mel) followed by autologous peripheral blood stem ...

Light-Emitting Diode Therapy in Preventing Mucositis in Children Receiving Chemotherapy With or Without Radiation Therapy Before Bone Marrow Transplantation

OBJECTIVES: - Compare the incidence and severity of oral mucositis in children undergoing NASA-developed light-emitting diode (LED) therapy during a pre-transplantation myeloablative conditioning regimen (chemotherapy with or without radiotherapy) and continuing through the post-bone marrow transplantation (BMT) phase versus LED therapy during the post-BMT phase only. OUTLINE: This is a ...

Delayed CNI-based Immunosuppression With Advagraf After MELD-based Liver Transplantation

The MELD-score (model of end stage liver disease) was designed to estimate the prognosis after TIPS (transjugular intrahepatic porto-systemic shunt). Nowadays it is the key-score for patients awaiting a liver graft and consists of serum-creatinine, serum-bilirubine and the INR-ratio with values between 6-40. The MELD-based liver allocation follows the sickest ...

Phase N/A

Immunization Anti HLA in the Liver Transplant Recipients (DSATH)

Humoral rejection, related to immunization of the patient against the graft, is diagnosed by the presence of DSA. This serious complication, responsible for dysfunction and graft loss in kidney and heart transplant, is treated by strengthening the immunosuppressive treatment. Humoral rejection is poorly characterized in liver transplantation, but might explain ...

Phase N/A

Mobilization of Mesenchymal Stem Cells During Liver Transplantation

Mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) are a known immune modulator with significant immunosuppressive effects. MSCs have emerged as a promising frontier in human clinical trials. MSCs have been shown to be non-immunogenic making them capable of transplantation across allogeneic barrier. These qualities make MSCs an ideal candidate to study if they ...

Phase N/A

Umbilical Cord Blood for Stem Cell Transplantation in Treating Young Patients With Malignant or Nonmalignant Diseases

OBJECTIVES: Primary - Determine the impact of the use of umbilical cord blood as a source of hematopoietic stem cells for children with life-threatening oncologic, hematologic, or genetic/metabolic disorders in need of a stem cell transplant. - Compare the incidence of graft-versus-host disease in patients receiving cord blood transplants in ...

Phase

Prophylaxis With Caspofungin in High-Risk Liver Transplantation

This is a non-comparative, open, multisite prospective estimation study to evaluate the efficacy and safety of caspofungin in the prophylactic treatment of adults who have received an orthotopic liver transplant and are at high risk of developing an invasive fungal infection. It is expected that the proportion of high-risk liver ...

Immunity Against Varicella in Pediatric Orthotopic Liver Transplantation Recipients

VZV vaccine given to pediatric liver transplant recipients at least one year after transplantation if tehy fulfill inclusion criteria and give informed consent.
