This is a repository to store blood and stem cell samples for future research.
Hematopoietic Stem Cell Transplantation
Graft vs Host Disease
|Study Design:||Observational Model: Case-Only
Time Perspective: Prospective
|Official Title:||Repository for Study: Evaluation of Immunoregulatory Cells in Hematopoietic Stem Cell Transplant (HSCT)|
|Study Start Date:||April 2003|
|Study Completion Date:||April 2008|
Our Hypothesis is that the graft-versus-tumor effect can be enhanced while minimizing the complications of GVHD by determining the qualitative and quantitative changes in T regulatory cells throughout the transplant process. Our understanding of this can lead to new treatment strategies and improved clinical therapeutic implications.
