  • Undergoing Donor Stem Cell Trans
  • PURPOSE: This phase II trial is studying how well giving total-body irradiation together with cyclophosphamide works in treating patients who are undergoing donor stem cell transplant for hematologic cancer and other diseases. (clinicaltrials.gov)
  • This randomized phase III trial is studying tacrolimus, methotrexate, and sirolimus to see how well they work compared to tacrolimus and methotrexate in preventing graft-versus-host disease in young patients who are undergoing donor stem cell transplant for intermediate-risk or high-risk acute lymphoblastic leukemia in second complete remission and high risk acute lymphoblastic leukemia in first remission.

  • HSCT
  • and for patients of any age undergoing HLA-mismatched familial donor HSCT (BuFluATG conditioning): Patients receive busulfan IV once daily on days -7 and -6, fludarabine phosphate IV over 30 minutes once daily on days -7 to -2, anti-thymocyte globulin IV over 4 hours once daily on days -3 to -1, and methylprednisolone IV over 30 minutes once daily on days -4 to -1.

  • The most significant disease affecting risk however is not genetically linked - patients with acquired cystic disease of the kidney requiring dialysis are 30 times more likely than the general population to develop RCC. (wikipedia.org)
  • In recent times, cell therapy using human material has been recognized as an important field in the treatment of human disease. (wikipedia.org)
  • In 1998 the largest study on the disease was a retrospective review with fifty-one patients. (wikipedia.org)
  • Occupational therapy can help patients finding alternative ways for common movements which would otherwise be restricted by their disease. (wikipedia.org)
