|Condition or disease||Intervention/treatment||Phase|
|Genetic Disorders Sickle Cell Anemia||Procedure: Busulfan, Cyclophosphamide, BMD||Phase 2|
The trial proposed is a single armed phase II treatment protocol designed to examine the engraftment,toxicity and graft-versus-host disease following a novel cytoreductive regimen including cyclophosphamide and Busulfan for the treatment of patients with Severe Sickle Cell Anemia,Thalassemia, and Diamond Blackfan Anemia using stem cell transplants derived from HLA-genotypically identical siblings.
Patients will be conditioned for transplantation with cyclophosphamide (50 mg/kg/day x 4 days), and busulfan [(if < 4 years of age 1 mg/kg 4 times per day x 4 days), (if > 4 years of age 0.8 mg/kg 4 times per day x 4 days)]. Patients will receive Methotrexate & Cyclosporin-A for prophylaxis against GvHD and GCSF to promote engraftment.
The preferred source of stem cells from related HLA-matched related donors will be unmodified bone marrow stem cells.
