  • 10°C vs 4°C Lung Preservation RCT

    open to eligible people ages 18-80

    Despite lung transplantation (LTx) being the most effective treatment for end-stage lung disease, its success rate is lower than that of other solid organ transplantations. Primary graft dysfunction (PGD) is the most common post-operative complication and a major factor in early mortality and morbidity, affecting ~25% of lung transplant patients. Induced by ischemia reperfusion, PGD represents a severe and acute lung injury that occurs within the first 72 hours after transplantation, and has a significant impact on short- and long-term outcomes, and a significant increase in treatment costs. Any intervention that reduces the risk of PGD will lead to major improvements in short- and long-term transplant outcomes and health care systems. One of the main strategies to reduce the risk and severity of post-transplant PGD is to improve pre-transplant donor lung preservation methods. In current practice, lung preservation is typically performed by cold flushing the organ with a specialized preservation solution, followed by subsequent hypothermic storage on ice (~4°C). This method continues to be used and applied across different organ systems due to its simplicity and low cost. Using this method for the preservation of donor lungs, the current maximum accepted preservation times have been limited to approximately 6-8h. While the goal of hypothermic storage is to sustain cellular viability during ischemic time through reduced cellular metabolism, lower organ temperature has also been shown to progressively favor mitochondrial dysfunction. Therefore, the ideal temperature for donor organ preservation remains to be defined and should maintain a balance between avoidance of mitochondrial dysfunction and prevention of cellular exhaustion. In addition to that, safe and longer preservation times can lead to multiple advantages such as moving overnight transplants to daytime, more flexibility to transplant logistics, more time for proper donor to recipient matching etc. Building on pre-clinical research suggesting that 10°C may be the optimal lung storage temperature, a prospective, multi-center, non-randomized clinical trial was conducted at University Health Network, Medical University of Vienna and Puerta de Hierro Majadahonda University Hospital. Donor lungs meeting criteria for direct transplantation and with cross clamp times between 6:00pm - 4:00am were intentionally delayed to an earliest allowed start time of 6:00am and a maximum preservation time from donor cold flush to recipient anesthesia start time of 12 hours. Lungs were retrieved and transported in the usual fashion using a cooler with ice and transferred to a 10°C temperature-controlled cooler upon arrival to transplant hospital until implantation. The primary outcome of this study was incidence of Primary Graft Dysfunction (PGD) Grade 3 at 72h, with secondary endpoints including: recipient time on the ventilator, ICU Length of Stay (LOS), hospital LOS, 30-day survival and lung function at 1-year. Outcomes were compared to a contemporaneous conventionally transplanted recipient cohort using propensity score matching at a 1:2 ratio. 70 patients were included in the study arm. Post-transplant outcomes were comparable between the two groups for up to 1 year. Thus, intentional prolongation of donor lung preservation at 10°C was shown to be clinically safe and feasible. In the current study design, the investigators will conduct a multi-centre, non-inferiority, randomized, controlled trial of 300 participants to compare donor lung preservation from the time of explant to implant at ~10°C in X°Port Lung Transport Device (Traferox Technologies Inc.) vs a standard ice cooler. When eligible donor lungs become available for a consented recipient, the lungs will be randomized to undergo a preservation protocol using either 10°C (X°Port Lung Transport Device, Traferox Technologies Inc.) or standard of care. The primary outcome of the study is incidence of ISHLT Primary Graft Dysfunction Grade 3 at 72 hours. Post-transplant outcomes will be followed for one year.

  • Feasibility Study Using CLINIMACS® for Alpha/Beta T-Cell Depletion in Stem Cell Transplant

    open to eligible people ages up to 30 years

    Patients in need of an allogeneic hematopoietic cell transplant (HCT) are at risk of developing graft-versus-host-disease (GVHD). In certain clinical situations, the optimal approach to minimize the risk of GVHD is to perform ex vivo alpha-beta T-cell depletion of the donor cells. However, the CliniMACS® Device is FDA-approved only for a narrow indication. All other uses of ex vivo processed cells must be done under a feasibility study protocol.

  • Immunosuppression Adjustment on COVID-19 Vaccination Response in Kidney Transplant Recipients

    open to eligible people ages 18 years and up

    Immunocompromised individuals, such as solid organ transplant (SOT) recipients are at high risk of COVID-19 associated complications and mortality. Retrospective studies so far have shown that a majority of SOT recipients did not develop appreciable anti-spike antibody response after a first, second, or even third dose of mRNA vaccine. Treatment with antimetabolites was associated with poor vaccine response. The goal of this study is 1) examine whether transient immunosuppression reduction improves the immune response to a third dose of SARS-CoV-2 mRNA vaccine in kidney transplant recipients and 2) to assess the safety of immunosuppression reduction before and after third dose SARS-CoV-2 mRNA vaccination.

  • Daratumumab and Belatacept for Desensitization

    open to eligible people ages 18-65

    Some kidney transplant candidates have a very low chance of getting a kidney transplant because their immune systems are "highly sensitized" to most kidney donors. Being "highly sensitized" means that they will likely have to wait a long time (more than 5 years) before an acceptable donor is found for them or, they never receive a compatible donor, and die on waitlist. The purpose of this study is to find out whether two drugs, daratumumab (Darzalex®), and belatacept (Nulojix®), can make these kidney transplant candidates less sensitized, and make it easier and quicker to find a kidney donor for them.

  • Identifying Best Approach in Improving Quality of Life and Survival After a Donor Stem Cell Transplant in Older, Medically Infirm, or Frail Patients With Blood Diseases

    open to eligible people ages 20 years and up

    This phase II/III trial studies the best approach in improving quality of life and survival after a donor stem cell transplant in older, weak, or frail patients with blood diseases. Patients who have undergone a transplant often experience increases in disease and death. One approach, supportive and palliative care (SPC), focuses on relieving symptoms of stress from serious illness and care through physical, cultural, psychological, social, spiritual, and ethical aspects. While a second approach, clinical management of comorbidities (CMC) focuses on managing multiple diseases, other than cancer, such as heart or lung diseases through physical exercise, strength training, stress reduction, medication management, dietary recommendations, and education. Giving SPC, CMC, or a combination of both may work better in improving quality of life and survival after a donor stem cell transplant compared to standard of care in patients with blood diseases.

  • AntiBKV as Treatment of BKV Infection in Kidney Transplant Recipients

    open to eligible people ages 18 years and up

    The purpose of this study is to evaluate the safety, tolerability, and efficacy of AntiBKV in reducing BKV DNAemia and progression to biopsy-confirmed BKVAN in kidney transplant recipients. This study has an operationally seamless phase II/III design. The phase II part will evaluate the safety of AntiBKV in kidney transplant recipients and establish antiviral proof of concept. The phase II part includes a dose-comparison part to generate additional PK and PD data of AntiBKV. The phase III part will assess the efficacy of AntiBKV in kidney transplant recipients. For both the phase II and phase III parts, participants will be randomized to receive either four doses of AntiBKV or four doses of placebo (every four weeks). In phase II, 60 participants will be first randomized (1:1) to receive either four doses of 1,000 mg of AntiBKV or placebo. In an additional dose-comparison extension, another 30 participants will be enrolled and randomized (1:1:1) to receive either four doses of 1,000 mg AntiBKV, four doses of 500 mg AntiBKV, or placebo. Based on a Day 141 analysis after phase II the sample size for the phase III part of the trial will be defined. Both the phase II and phase III parts will follow identical study assessments and schedules for participants. Eligible participants will receive an intravenous infusion of the investigational medicinal product (IMP) that will be administered four times at a four-week interval. For the first ten participants enrolled in the study, the infusion time will be at least 60 minutes. Provided there are no safety concerns observed with the first ten participants the duration of subsequent infusions will be at least 30 minutes. After administration of the final dose, participants will return as out participants for periodic safety, BKV DNAemia, and PK follow-up assessments until the end of the trial visits, 26 weeks post last IMP application. Regular kidney biopsies will be performed at baseline (prior to infusion) and on Day 141 (8 weeks after full dosing). An additional biopsy will be taken on Day 267 (optional) and if clinically indicated.

  • Structured Program of Exercise for Recipients of Kidney Transplantation

    open to eligible people ages 50 years and up

    Older patients with end- stage kidney disease (ESKD) are at very high risk for functional impairment. Kidney transplantation (KT) has the potential to ameliorate the detrimental effects of ESKD on physical activity and functional status. However, KT alone may not meet the full extent of this potential, particularly for older or more impaired adults. In fact, activity declines immediately post-KT and fails to return to expected levels even 5 years post-KT. Older patients waitlisted for KT (most of whom are on dialysis) are therefore reliant on their pre-KT levels of exercise, which are also predictive of post-KT mortality. "Prehabilitation" has been used in other surgical populations to minimize functional loss, and a structured exercise program may be beneficial in the pre- KT setting. However, few waitlisted patients are able to participate in typical exercise interventions due to barriers such as severe fatigue. Older patients have additional barriers such as further mobility impairment and requiring substantial caregiver support. Therefore for older living donor kidney transplant candidates, it is necessary to address issues such as specifics of coaching, timing, and importantly, incorporate caregiver participation. The overall objective of this proposal is to adapt a previously developed 8- week, home- based, structured exercise program among older (≥50 years) dialysis patients awaiting living donor KT, with a focus on caregiver involvement. The investigators will trial the exercise program as compared to usual care. The investigators will then pilot the refined intervention in a total of 72 patient-caregiver dyads, 48 of whom will undergo the proposed intervention (24 with caregiver participation, 24 without). The primary outcomes for the pilot will be change in physical performance and activity from baseline to after the intervention, along with measurements of exploratory quality of life outcomes. In addition, the investigators will measure these same outcomes at 3- months post KT to evaluate for a durable effect of the intervention. An additional post-transplantation outcome of interest will be number of days hospitalized within 3 months of transplantation.

  • Desensitization of Chronic Kidney Disease in Adult Patients in Need of a Kidney Transplant Who Are Highly Sensitized to Human Leukocyte Antigen

    open to eligible people ages 18-70

    The primary objective of the study is to assess the safety and tolerability of REGN5459 (Part A) or REGN5458 (Part B) as monotherapy in patients with chronic kidney disease (CKD) who need kidney transplantation and are highly sensitized to human leukocyte antigen (HLA). The secondary objectives of the study are to determine/assess the following for REGN5459 (Part A) or REGN5458 (Part B): - Dose regimen(s) that result in a clinically meaningful reduction of anti-HLA alloantibody levels - Effect on calculated panel-reactive antibody (cPRA) levels - Time to maximal and clinically meaningful reduction in anti-HLA alloantibody levels - Duration of the effect of study drug on the reduction of anti-HLA alloantibodies - Effect on circulating immunoglobulin (Ig) classes (isotypes) - Pharmacokinetics (PK) properties - Immunogenicity

  • Combined Kidney and Blood Stem Cell Transplant From a Brother or Sister Donor

    open to eligible people ages 18 years and up

    The purpose of this study is to find out if an investigational treatment will allow kidney transplant recipients to better accept their new kidney and stop immunosuppressive medicines. This study is for kidney transplant recipients who receive a kidney from a sibling donor. The investigational treatment is started after kidney transplant. It begins with a regimen of a drug called rabbit anti-thymocyte globulin (rATG) combined with radiation therapy (known as total lymphoid irradiation, or TLI) to the lymph nodes and spleen. This is followed by an infusion of blood stem cells, which will be donated by the same sibling who donated their kidney. Researchers think that this treatment allows immune cells from the donor and recipient to live side by side, a condition referred to as "mixed chimerism." Mixed chimerism may help create a state of "tolerance" in kidney transplant recipients in which all immunosuppressive medications can be stopped without rejection of the transplanted kidney. This study will test whether (1) the investigational treatment will allow patients to stop immunosuppressive medications after their kidney transplant and (2) if the treatment impacts the rate of kidney rejection and the side effects of immunosuppressive medications.

  • ARINA-1 in the Prevention of Bronchiolitis Obliterans Progression in Participants With Bilateral Lung Transplant

    open to eligible people ages 18-75

    The goal of this clinical trial is to compare ARINA-1 plus Standard of Care vs Standard of Care alone. The main question it aims to answer are: - Evaluate the effectiveness of ARINA-1 in preventing bronchiolitis obliterans syndrome (BOS) progression in participants with a bilateral lung transplant - To evaluate the effectiveness of ARINA-1 on improving quality of life decline and preventing or delaying the use of augmented immunosuppression in participants with pre-BOS relative to SOC. Participants will have clinic visits at screening, randomization (day 1) and weeks 4, 12, 18, and 24. After week 24, participants will have clinic visits at weeks 32, 40, and 48. Participants will also have a telehealth visit on day 2 and phone calls to assess adverse events (AEs), serious adverse events (SAEs), and review patient education will occur during weeks 5, 8, 36, and 44.

  • TEE and Dysphagia in Lung Transplantation

    open to eligible people ages 18 years and up

    The primary outcome of this study is dysphagia (difficulty swallowing) on postoperative speech and swallow evaluation following lung transplantation. Transesophageal echocardiography (TEE) (creates pictures of the heart from inside the participants body) is routinely performed for all lung transplantations at the University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA) and it is the standard of care. Patients are randomized to two groups. The intervention group would limit the number of TEE clips (# pictures taken) per case. The control group would leave the number of TEE clips to the discretion of the attending anesthesiologist. The investigators hypothesize that reduction in TEE imaging during lung transplantation will reduce dysphagia.

  • Treosulfan-Based Conditioning Regimen Before a Blood or Bone Marrow Transplant for the Treatment of Bone Marrow Failure Diseases (BMT CTN 1904)

    open to eligible people ages 1-49

    This phase II trial tests whether treosulfan, fludarabine, and rabbit antithymocyte globulin (rATG) work when given before a blood or bone marrow transplant (conditioning regimen) to cause fewer complications for patients with bone marrow failure diseases. Chemotherapy drugs, such as treosulfan, work in different ways to stop the growth of tumor cells, either by killing the cells, by stopping them from dividing, or by stopping them from spreading. Fludarabine may stop the growth of cancer cells by blocking some of the enzymes needed for cell growth. rATG is used to decrease the body's immune response and may improve bone marrow function and increase blood cell counts. Adding treosulfan to a conditioning regimen with fludarabine and rATG may result in patients having less severe complications after a blood or bone marrow transplant.

  • TRANSPIRE: Lung Injury in a Longitudinal Cohort of Pediatric HSCT Patients

    open to eligible people ages up to 24 years

    Hematopoietic stem cell transplant (HSCT) is an effective but toxic therapy and pulmonary morbidity affects as many as 25% of children receiving transplant. Early pulmonary injury includes diffuse alveolar hemorrhage (DAH), thrombotic microangiopathy (TMA) interstitial pneumonitis (IPS) and infection, while later, bronchiolitis obliterans is a complication of chronic GVHD associated with severe morbidity and mortality. Improved diagnosis and treatment of pulmonary complications are urgently needed as survival after HSCT improves, and as HSCT is increasingly used for non-malignant disorders such as sickle cell disease. Currently, there are large and important gaps in the investigator's knowledge regarding incidence, etiology and optimal treatment of pulmonary complications. Moreover, young children unable to perform spirometry are often diagnosed late, and strategies for monitoring therapeutic response are limited. This is a prospective multi-institutional cohort study in pediatric patients undergoing allogeneic hematopoietic stem cell transplantation (alloHSCT). Assembly of a large prospective uniformly screened cohort of children receiving HSCT, together with collection of biological samples, will be an effective strategy to identify mechanisms of lung injury, test novel diagnostic strategies for earlier diagnosis, and novel treatments to reduce morbidity and mortality from lung injury after transplant.

  • Belumosudil to Block Chronic Lung Allograft Dysfunction (CLAD) in High Risk Lung Transplant Recipients

    Sorry, not yet accepting patients

    The purpose of this study is to see if taking the study drug, Belumosudil, for 52 weeks in addition to your usual care and medication, will prevent Chronic Lung Allograft Dysfunction (CLAD) in participants who have a lung biopsy that shows evidence of rejection or inflammation to the transplanted lung(s). For this study, biopsies that show evidence of Acute Rejection (AR), Lymphocytic Bronchiolitis (LB), Organizing Pneumonia (OP) or Acute Lung Injury (ALI) are referred to as "Qualifying Biopsies"; patients who had evidence of one or more of these conditions on a recent biopsy are eligible for enrollment in this study. Belumosudil is an investigational drug that blocks a molecule in the body that reduces inflammation and scarring and may play a role in the development and progression of CLAD. Belumosudil is a drug approved by the FDA to treat adults and children 12 years and older with chronic graft-versus-host disease (cGVHD), a condition with some similarities to CLAD. The primary objective it to determine the efficacy of treatment with Belumosudil + maintenance immunosuppression (IS) versus placebo + maintenance IS on preventing the subsequent development of probable or definite CLAD, lung retransplant, or death.

  • Combination Chemotherapy, Autologous Stem Cell Transplant, and/or Radiation Therapy in Treating Young Patients With Extraocular Retinoblastoma

    Sorry, in progress, not accepting new patients

    This phase III trial is studying the side effects and how well giving combination chemotherapy together with autologous stem cell transplant and/or radiation therapy works in treating young patients with extraocular retinoblastoma. Giving chemotherapy before an autologous stem cell transplant stops the growth of tumor cells by stopping them from dividing or killing them. After treatment, stem cells are collected from the patient's blood and/or bone marrow and stored. More chemotherapy is given to prepare the bone marrow for the stem cell transplant. The stem cells are then returned to the patient to replace the blood-forming cells that were destroyed by the chemotherapy. Radiation therapy uses high energy x-rays to kill tumor cells. Giving radiation therapy after combination chemotherapy and/or autologous stem cell transplant may kill any remaining tumor cells.

  • Induction Therapy Including 131 I-MIBG and Chemotherapy in Treating Patients With Newly Diagnosed High-Risk Neuroblastoma Undergoing Stem Cell Transplant, Radiation Therapy, and Maintenance Therapy With Isotretinoin

    Sorry, in progress, not accepting new patients

    This pilot clinical trial studies induction therapy followed by iobenguane I 131 and chemotherapy in treating patients with newly diagnosed high-risk neuroblastoma undergoing stem cell transplant, radiation therapy, and maintenance therapy with isotretinoin. Radioisotope therapy, such as iobenguane I 131, releases radiation that kills tumor cells. Drugs used in chemotherapy, such as carboplatin, etoposide phosphate, busulfan, and melphalan, work in different ways to stop the growth of tumor cells, either by killing the cells or by stopping them from dividing. A peripheral stem cell transplant may be able to replace blood-forming cells that are destroyed by iobenguane I 131 and chemotherapy. Giving radioisotope therapy, chemotherapy, and peripheral stem cell transplant may kill more tumor cells.

  • Lenalidomide in Treating Patients With Multiple Myeloma Undergoing Autologous Stem Cell Transplant

    Sorry, in progress, not accepting new patients

    This randomized phase III trial studies lenalidomide to see how well it works compared to a placebo in treating patients with multiple myeloma who are undergoing autologous stem cell transplant. Giving chemotherapy before a peripheral blood stem cell transplant helps kill any cancer cells that are in the body and helps make room in the patient's bone marrow for new blood-forming cells (stem cells) to grow. After treatment, stem cells are collected from the patient's blood and stored. More chemotherapy is then given to prepare the bone marrow for the stem cell transplant. The stem cells are then returned to the patient to replace the blood-forming cells that were destroyed by the chemotherapy. Biological therapies, such as lenalidomide, may stimulate or suppress the immune system in different ways and stop cancer cells from growing. Giving lenalidomide after autologous stem cell transplant may be an effective treatment for multiple myeloma.

  • Lung Transplant READY CF 2: A Multi-site RCT

    Sorry, not currently recruiting here

    Lung transplant is an option for treating end-stage lung disease in cystic fibrosis (CF). In the United States, more people with CF and low lung function die each year than undergo lung transplant. More than half of people with CF who die without a lung transplant were never referred for consideration. Patient preference not to undergo lung transplant may account for 25-40% of decisions to defer referral. Rates of death without transplant are higher for people with CF who are members of marginalized communities, including those with Black race, Hispanic ethnicity, or low socioeconomic status. Increasing awareness of lung transplant among people with CF, and promoting understanding of the risks and benefits of transplant, can potentially reduce the number of people with CF who die without a lung transplant. The CF Foundation (CFF) lung transplant referral guidelines were developed to optimize the timing of referral for lung transplant. These guidelines recommend annual conversations with people with CF once their forced expiratory volume in one second (FEV1) is <50% predicted. Considering lung transplant as a treatment option before it is medically needed will allow more time to learn about lung transplant and address any barriers to lung transplant that may exist. Investigators are interested in understanding how people with CF use lung transplant educational resources and how one prepares for having discussions and/or making decisions about lung transplant as a treatment option for advanced CF. The purpose of this study is to test whether a research website improves patient preparedness for discussions about lung transplant. Investigators also aim to understand whether there are unique factors that affect people with CF from communities with decreased access to transplant ("communities of concern"). Study involvement will span 6 months and study activities will involve the following: - Four Zoom research sessions (15-30 minutes each) - Survey assessments - Access to a research website that contains educational resources about lung transplant - Audio recording of a routine CF clinic visit to determine if and how lung transplant is discussed between a participant and his/her/their CF doctor

  • Phage Therapy for Recurrent UTIs in Kidney Transplant Recipients

    Sorry, not yet accepting patients

    This proposal will take an important first step in the study of phage therapy for treatment of recurrent urinary tract infection (rUTI) in female kidney transplant recipients (KTR); a common condition that is associated with increasing multidrug resistance, sickness, loss of kidney function and death. The investigators will conduct a randomized phase I/II pilot clinical trial of targeted phage therapy versus placebo in asymptomatic female KTR with a history of rUTI due to Escherichia coli and Klebsiella pneumoniae to assess safety, tolerability, and feasibility of this approach, possible efficacy, and changes in the gut and urinary microbiome during the 180 days of the study. This highly innovative and impactful proposal will provide proof of concept data and also inform the design of a subsequent larger phase III clinical trial of phage therapy for rUTI treatment in KTR and will have broad downstream effects within the fields of infectious diseases and transplantation.

  • Lenalidomide, Bortezomib, Dexamethasone vs High-Dose Treatment With SCT in MM Patients up to Age 65

    Sorry, in progress, not accepting new patients

    In this research study, we are looking to explore the drug combination, lenalidomide, bortezomib and dexamethasone alone or when combined with autologous stem cell transplantation to see what side effects it may have and how well it works for treatment of newly diagnosed multiple myeloma. Specifically, the objective of this trial is to determine if, in the era of novel drugs, high dose therapy (HDT) is still necessary in the initial management of multiple myeloma in younger patients. In this study, HDT as compared to conventional dose treatment would be considered superior if it significantly prolongs progression-free survival by at least 9 months or more, recognizing that particular subgroups may benefit more compared to others.

  • Standard-Dose Combination Chemotherapy or High-Dose Combination Chemotherapy and Stem Cell Transplant in Treating Patients With Relapsed or Refractory Germ Cell Tumors

    Sorry, in progress, not accepting new patients

    This randomized phase III trial studies how well standard-dose combination chemotherapy works compared to high-dose combination chemotherapy and stem cell transplant in treating patients with germ cell tumors that have returned after a period of improvement or did not respond to treatment. Drugs used in chemotherapy, such as paclitaxel, ifosfamide, cisplatin, carboplatin, and etoposide, work in different ways to stop the growth of tumor cells, either by killing the cells, by stopping them from dividing, or by stopping them from spreading. Giving chemotherapy before a stem cell transplant stops the growth of cancer cells by stopping them from dividing or killing them. Giving colony-stimulating factors, such as filgrastim or pegfilgrastim, and certain chemotherapy drugs, helps stem cells move from the bone marrow to the blood so they can be collected and stored. Chemotherapy is then given to prepare the bone marrow for the stem cell transplant. The stem cells are then returned to the patient to replace the blood-forming cells that were destroyed by the chemotherapy. It is not yet known whether high-dose combination chemotherapy and stem cell transplant are more effective than standard-dose combination chemotherapy in treating patients with refractory or relapsed germ cell tumors.

  • Ibrutinib Before and After Stem Cell Transplant in Treating Patients With Relapsed or Refractory Diffuse Large B-cell Lymphoma

    “Targeted chemotherapy/placebo for relapsed (returned after a period of improvement) or refractory (does not respond to treatment) lymphoma”

    Sorry, in progress, not accepting new patients

    This randomized phase III trial studies ibrutinib to see how well it works compared to placebo when given before and after stem cell transplant in treating patients with diffuse large B-cell lymphoma that has returned after a period of improvement (relapsed) or does not respond to treatment (refractory). Before transplant, stem cells are taken from patients and stored. Patients then receive high doses of chemotherapy to kill cancer cells and make room for healthy cells. After treatment, the stem cells are then returned to the patient to replace the blood-forming cells that were destroyed by the chemotherapy. Ibrutinib is a drug that may stop the growth of cancer cells by blocking a protein that is needed for cell growth. It is not yet known whether adding ibrutinib to chemotherapy before and after stem cell transplant may help the transplant work better in patients with relapsed or refractory diffuse large B-cell lymphoma.

  • Zevalin Before Stem Cell Transplant in Treating Patients With Non-Hodgkin Lymphoma

    “Is radioimmunotherapy before a donor peripheral blood stem cell transplant an effective treatment for non-Hodgkin's Lymphoma?”

    Sorry, in progress, not accepting new patients

    This phase II trial studies how well ibritumomab tiuxetan before donor peripheral blood stem cell transplant works in treating patients with relapsed or refractory non-Hodgkin lymphoma. Giving rituximab, antithymocyte globulin, and total-lymphoid irradiation (TLI) before a donor peripheral blood stem cell transplant helps stop the growth of cancer cells and helps stop the patient's immune system from rejecting the donor's stem cells. Also, radiolabeled monoclonal antibodies, such as ibritumomab tiuxetan, can find cancer cells and carry cancer-killing substances to them without harming normal cells. When the healthy stem cells from a donor are infused into the patient they may help the patient's bone marrow make stem cells, red blood cells, white blood cells, and platelets. Sometimes the transplanted cells from a donor can make an immune response against the body's normal cells. Giving rituximab, antithymocyte globulin, and TLI before the transplant together with cyclosporine and mycophenolate mofetil after the transplant may stop this from happening. Giving a radiolabeled monoclonal antibody before a donor peripheral blood stem cell transplant may be an effective treatment for non-Hodgkin lymphoma.
