About this trial:
For many patients diagnosed with blood disorders, a marrow transplant, cord blood transplant or PBSC infusion may provide hope for remission. Once a patient has found a donor match, he or she begins a transplant preparative regimen. This often involves patients receiving high doses of chemotherapy and radiation, which destroys diseased cells in the patient’s body and blood-forming cells in bone marrow to make room for new cells. These high doses of chemotherapy and radiation may cause severe side effects.
The study will collect blood-forming cells (stem cells) from your bloodstream that will be used to make an investigational product being developed to see if it may help protect cancer patients from infections.
You must meet certain requirements to participate in this study.
