Study Summary

This trial is testing a new way to prepare for a bone marrow transplant that may be less intense and have fewer side effects.

Who is the study for?
This trial is for children and young adults under 21 with non-cancerous blood, bone marrow, or metabolic disorders. They must have a matched donor for bone marrow or umbilical cord blood transplant and be in good health otherwise. Pregnant individuals, those with HIV, or active infections cannot participate.Check my eligibility
What is being tested?
The study tests a new transplant conditioning regimen that uses Campath (an immunosuppressive drug), Fludarabine (a chemotherapy agent), and Melphalan (another chemotherapy) to prepare patients' bodies to accept donor cells without fully destroying their own bone marrow.See study design
What are the potential side effects?
Potential side effects may include immune system suppression leading to increased infection risk, reactions related to the infusion of drugs, organ inflammation due to strong medications used in the treatment plan, and general symptoms like fatigue.

Frequently Asked Questions

These questions and answers are submitted by anonymous patients, and have not been verified by our internal team.

Is this study still open to new participants?

"That is correct, the online information indicates that this research is looking for more subjects. This trial was first advertised on December 1st 2001 and updated October 12th 2021. The aim is to have 220 people enrolled at 20 different hospitals or clinics."

Answered by AI

What is the projected class size for this trial?

"That is accurate. The latest information on clinicaltrials.gov reveals that this trial, which was first announced on December 1st 2001, is still looking for participants. They need to enroll 220 patients from 20 different locations."

Answered by AI

What is the purpose of this clinical trial?

"The purpose of this 100-day clinical trial is to evaluate the major toxicities of a new transplant treatment. Secondary outcomes include immune reconstitution, T cell function, B cell function, and incidence of acute graft-versus-host disease. Finally, the time to neutrophil and platelet engraftment will be measured."

Answered by AI

Is this trial being held in more than one state?

"In addition to All Children's Hospital in Saint Petersburg, Florida, Louisiana State University in New Orleans, Louisiana, and St. Louis University in Saint Louis, Oklahoma, this clinical trial is also enrolling patients at 20 other locations."
