Summary: SARS-CoV2 has become a pandemic disease putting an enormous burden on health care systems around the world. A considerable amount of patients require intensive care treatment for Covid-19 associated pneumonia. At this point there is no specific treatment, apart from supportive intensive care treatment protocols for severe COVID-19 disease.The latest reports describe massive hyperinflammation in so...
Who is this study for: Adult patients with Hemoglobinopathy, Cytopenia, Hemophagocytic Lymphohistiocytosis, Primary Immunodeficiency, Metabolic Disorders, or any disorder requiring a Hematopoietic Stem Cell Transplant
Summary: In this study, the investigators test 2 dose levels of thiotepa (5 mg/kg and 10 mg/kg) added to the backbone of targeted reduced dose IV busulfan, fludarabine and rabbit anti-thymocyte globulin (rATG) to determine the minimum effective dose required for reliable engraftment for subjects undergoing hematopoietic stem cell transplantation for non-malignant disease.
Summary: This study hypothesizes that a reduced intensity immunosuppressive preparative regimen will establish engraftment of donor hematopoietic cells with acceptable early and delayed toxicity in patients with immune function disorders. A regimen that maximizes host immune suppression is expected to reduce graft rejection and optimize donor cell engraftment.
