Mark “Yes” if the following statements are true for you:
Every person involved in the study (or their guardians) must be able to understand and agree to written consent; any child taking part in the study will need to assent as per the guidelines of the institution; if a non-English patient wishes to take part in the study, bilingual health services will be provided in the appropriate language whenever feasible.
A participant must be willing to comply with study and/or follow-up procedures, including being willing to be followed for one year post-HCT.
s, significantly improved leukemia-free survival outcomes in adult patients with first complete remission (CR) of acute myeloid leukemia (AML) compared with chemotherapy Allogeneic hematopoietic cell transplantation (allo-HCT) with high/intermediate resolution HLA donor allele matching increased leukemia-free survival outcomes in adult patients with first complete remission (CR) of acute myeloid leukemia (AML) compared with chemotherapy.
Females of childbearing potential and sexually active males must use contraception prior to study entry and for up to 90 days after HCT
The text tells us that people are allowed to have conditioning and immunosuppressive regimens according to the institutional guidelines.
A negative serum or urine beta-human chorionic gonadotropin (HCG) test within two weeks of registration is required for all female patients of childbearing potential.
The person has not been infected with the human immunodeficiency virus, the hepatitis C virus, or the hepatitis B virus and has tested negative for the presence of their DNA within the last two months.
The researchers plan to do a related, experimental transplant with a donor who shares three of six of the patient's HLA genes.
