Study Start Date: April 2003
Study Completion Date: April 2008
Detailed Description:

The investigators' hypothesis is that the graft-versus-tumor effect can be enhanced while minimizing the complications of graft-versus-host disease (GVHD) by determining the qualitative and quantitative changes in T regulatory cells throughout the transplant process. Their understanding of this can lead to new treatment strategies and improved clinical therapeutic implications.
