High-Dose Gemcitabine, Busulfan and Melphalan for Patients With Refactory Hodgkin's Disease
The goal of this clinical research study is to learn if the combination of gemcitabine, busulfan, and melphalan, when given before a stem cell transplant, can help to control refractory Hodgkin's disease. The safety of this study treatment will also be studied.
