Study Summary

This trial is testing a new, less intense immunosuppressive regimen to see if it can establish engraftment of donor hematopoietic cells while still being safe.

Who is the study for?
This trial is for people under 28 with certain immune disorders like DiGeorge Syndrome and Wiskott-Aldrich Syndrome. They must have normal organ function, a performance status of at least 40%, and a matched donor for cell transplant. People with HIV, uncontrolled infections, or who are pregnant/breastfeeding can't join.Check my eligibility
What is being tested?
The study tests whether a mix of drugs (alemtuzumab, fludarabine, thiotepa, melphalan) before a cell transplant can help the body accept new immune cells with manageable side effects in patients with immune deficiencies.See study design
What are the potential side effects?
Possible side effects include reactions to the drug infusion such as fever or chills; low blood counts leading to increased infection risk; liver issues; nausea; mouth sores; and fatigue.
