The aim of this study to evaluate the safety and efficacy of a nonmyeloablative conditioning regimen for allogeneic hematopoietic stem cell transplantation (HSCT) in pediatric patients with sickle cell disease (SCD) who have a matched related major ABO-incompatible donor. The nonmyeloablative regimen will use alemtuzumab, total body irradiation (TBI) and sirolimus for immune suppression. This study will expand the access of HSCT for patients with SCD who are currently not eligible because of donor restrictions.
The purpose of this study is to determine occurrence of pure red cell aplasia in a group of participants with chronic renal insufficiency and with resistance criteria to epoetin alfa treatment.The investigational product is producted by Bio-Manguinhos / Fiocruz (BIO-EPO) and it is provided by the Unified Health System.
This study will determine the safety and possibility of giving the amino acid, leucine, in patients with Diamond Blackfan anemia(DBA)who are on dependent on red blood cell transfusions. The leucine is expected to produce a response in patients with DBA to the point where red blood cell production is increased. Red cell transfusions can then be less frequent or possibly discontinued. The investigators will study the side effects, if any, of giving leucine to DBA patients. Leucine levels of leucine will be obtained at baseline and during the study. The drug leucine will be provided in capsule form and taken 3 times a day for a total of 9 months.
The purpose of this study is to estimate the incidence rate of pure red cell aplasia (PRCA; aplastic anemia) mediated by erythropoietin (EPO) antibodies in patients who are receiving subcutaneous (s.c.) epoetin alfa (polysorbate 80 formulation) for the treatment of anemia associated with chronic renal failure (CRF), and to compare this incidence rate to the incidence rate with s.c. exposure to other currently marketed recombinant erythropoietin products (epoetin alfa, epoetin beta, darbepoetin alfa), with adjustment of duration for which the drug is given to the patient. The study will also examine the impact of the pattern of using mixed s.c. exposure to multiple erythropoietin products occurring in this patients, and the impact of the time from which the treatment is started to the onset of PRCA.
Bone marrow failure syndromes (BMFS) are rare disorders characterized by dysfunctional hematopoietic stem cells, which give rise to all red and white blood cells. The deficiency of blood cells, or cytopenia, caused by this malfunction leads to an assortment of diseases and disorders, all of which are characterized as BMFS. Because these diseases are rare, conducting research on them is difficult, and standards of treatment for most BMFS have yet to be developed. This study will collect clinical and laboratory data from people with BMFS to identify the characteristics and biological markers associated with these diseases over time. This information will assist doctors and researchers to develop better therapies and diagnostic tests that will help improve the management of BMFS and cytopenias.
The purpose of this study is to evaluate the ability of peginesatide to increase and maintain increased hemoglobin levels in participants with chronic kidney disease (CKD) (either not on dialysis, receiving regular hemodialysis or peritoneal dialysis, or following renal transplant) with confirmed antibody-mediated pure red cell aplasia (PRCA).
This study will test whether the immune-suppressing drug rituximab can increase blood counts and reduce the need for transfusions in patients with moderate aplastic anemia, pure red cell aplasia, or Diamond Blackfan anemia. These are rare and serious blood disorders in which the immune system turns against bone marrow cells, causing the bone marrow to stop producing red blood cells in patients with pure red cell aplasia and Diamond Blackfan anemia, and red blood cells, white blood cells and platelets in patients with aplastic anemia. Rituximab is a laboratory-made monoclonal antibody that recognizes and destroys white blood cells called lymphocytes that are responsible for destroying bone marrow cells in these diseases. The drug is currently approved by the Food and Drug Administration for treating patients with B-cell non-Hodgkin lymphoma, a disease of white blood cells.
The purpose of this study is to collect historical occurrences of risk factors that are potentially associated with the development of anti-erythropoietin (EPO) antibody positive pure red cell aplasia (PRCA) in participants with chronic kidney disease who have been recently treated with epoetin alfa (EPREX).
The purpose of this study is to investigate the relationship of anti-erythropoietin antibodies to the clinical course and outcome of pure red cell aplasia (PRCA) in participants currently or previously treated with recombinant human erythropoietin.
The purpose of this study is to record the number of participants with chronic renal disease who are receiving treatment with epoetin alfa or other recombinant erythropoietins who develop pure red cell aplasia (PRCA, a rare form of anemia) during the study period.
