Primary Outcome Measures:
  • To evaluate tralsplant-related mortality after haploidentical hematopoietic stem cell transplantation using TCRαβ-depleted graft [ Time Frame: 1 year posttransplant ]

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • To assess engraftment and graft failure [ Time Frame: 28 days posttransplant ]
  • To estimate the risk of acute GVHD [ Time Frame: 100 days posttransplant ]
  • To estimate the incidence of relapse [ Time Frame: 100 days and 1 year post-transplant ]
  • To estimate the incidence and severity of chronic GVHD [ Time Frame: 1 year posttransplant ]
  • To estimate the overall survival [ Time Frame: 1 year posttransplant ]
  • To estimate the incidence of bacterial, fungal and viral infection [ Time Frame: 100 days and 1 year posttransplant ]
  • To estimate the reactivation rate of CMV, EBV [ Time Frame: 100 days and 1 year posttransplant ]
  • To evaluate the immune reconstitution of T, B, and NK cells [ Time Frame: days 7, 14, 21, 28, 60, 90, 180, 270, and 365 days post-transplant ]
  • To evaluate the lineage-specific chimerism using flow cytomery of CD3+, CD19, CD56, TCR αβ, and TCRγδ at pre-transplant [ Time Frame: days 7, 10, 14, 21, 28, 60, 90, 180, 270 and 365 post-transplant ]
  • To assess event free survival [ Time Frame: 1 year posttransplant ]
