  • Filgrastim-Mobilized Stem Cells for Transplantation Using Unrelated Donors
  • The purpose of the study is to: - Establish and evaluate a system for collection of filgrastim-mobilized peripheral blood stem cells from National Marrow Donor Program donors (NMDP) donors - Assess the safety among NMDP donors of filgrastim administration and PBSC leukapheresis - Assess the safety and efficacy of filgrastim-mobilized PBSC in unrelated donor hematopoietic stem cell transplant recipients - Determine the acceptability of stem cell donation by filgrastim stimulated apheresis in normal donors

  • Standard of Care vs. Bortezomib in Graft-Versus Host Disease After Hematopoietic Stem Cell Transplant
  • This research study is a Phase II clinical trial. Phase II clinical trials test the effectiveness of an investigational drug to learn whether the drug works in treating a specific cancer. "Investigational" means that the drug is still being studied and that research doctors are trying to find out more about it-such as the safest dose to use, the side effects it may cause, and if the drug is effective for treating different types of cancer. It also means that the FDA has not yet approved bortezomib to treat or prevent graft-versus-host disease. Bortezomib is approved by the FDA to treat other human malignancies. Bortezomib is a drug that has an anti-cancer effect that involves inhibiting cell growth and causing cell death. This drug has been used in other research studies, and information from thos other research studies suggests that bortezomib may help to lower the risk of GVHD after allogeneic stem cell transplantation in patients who have matched unrelated, unmatched related or unrelated donors in this research study. Allogeneic stem cell transplantation is a procedure in which selected blood cells taken from your sibling or unrelated donor are given to you. Lower doses of chemotherapy drugs are given before the donor cells are infused in a process known as reduced-intensity conditioning. Stem cell transplant destroys cancer in two ways: The conditioning regimen destroys cancer cells and teh immune cells from the donor can recognize cancer cells and kill them. A common problem after stem cell transplant is graft-versus-host disease (GVHD). The word "graft" refers to the donor blood cells that you will receive during your transplant. The word "host" refers to the person (in this case, you) receiving the cells. GVHD is a complication of transplantation where the donor graft attacks and damages some of your tissues. GVHD can cause skin rash, intestinal problems such as nausea, vomiting or diarrhea. GVHD may also damage your liver and cause hepatitis or jaundice. GVHD may also increase your risk of infection. After stem cell transplant, all patients receive prophylactic medications against GVHD. In this research study we are studying the safety and effectiveness of preventing GVHD using bortezomib treatment in combination with other drugs versus standard of care prophylaxis (tacrolimus + methotrexate). If you take part in this study, there is a 33% chance you will receive any one of the following GVHD prevention treatments: - tacrolimus + methotrexate (standard of care GVHD prophylaxis) - bortezomib + tacrolimus + methotrexate - bortezomib + sirolimus + tacrolimus Sirolimus, tacrolimus and methotrexate are drugs that suppress the immune system to try to prevent GVHD.

  • National Marrow Donor Program Long-Term Donor Follow-Up
  • This is an observational study of unstimulated bone marrow (BM) and filgrastim-mobilized peripheral blood stem cell (PBSC) donors. The primary goal is to evaluate the hypothesis that the incidence of targeted malignant, thrombotic and autoimmune disorders after unrelated hematopoietic stem cell donation are similar between unstimulated BM and filgrastim-mobilized PBSC donors.
