Study Summary

This trial is testing a new way to give an allogeneic HCT, which is a transplant of blood-forming cells from a donor. This new method uses a myeloablative preparative regimen, which is a way to kill cancer cells, followed by a post-transplant graft-versus-host disease (GVHD) prophylaxis regimen.

Who is the study for?
This trial is for people with various blood disorders like leukemia, lymphoma, and myelodysplasia who are in remission or have high-risk features. They must be under 60 years old with good organ function and HIV+ patients need an undetectable viral load. Pregnant women, those with active infections or certain types of cancer that aren't responding to treatment can't join.Check my eligibility
What is being tested?
The study tests a bone marrow transplant (HSCT) using either total body irradiation (TBI) or a chemo regimen for those who can't have more radiation. It's followed by drugs to prevent graft-versus-host disease. The goal is to see how well these treatments work for severe blood disorders.See study design
What are the potential side effects?
Possible side effects include damage to organs from radiation or chemotherapy, increased risk of infections due to immune suppression, reactions from the transplant itself, and complications related to medications used after the transplant.

Frequently Asked Questions

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

Has the HSCT with TBI Regimen been officially sanctioned by the FDA?

"Our team at Power assessed the safety of Hematopoietic Stem Cell Transplantation with Total Body Irradiation as a 2, due to there being data in support of its security but not efficacy."

Answered by AI

Is the study currently recruiting participants?

"Clinicaltrials.gov affirms that this research project is currently recruiting participants, having first been listed on March 30th 2018 and most recently updated April 12th 2022."

Answered by AI

What is the uppermost limit of participants enrolled in this experiment?

"Affirmative. Clinicaltrials.gov's records demonstrate that this trial, initially posted on March 30th 2018, is still actively seeking enrollees. 300 individuals must be recruited from a single location for the study to commence."
