1. To evaluate the safety of orally administered Lactobacillus plantarum strains 299 and 299v, a probiotic, in patients undergoing allogeneic myeloablative HSCT, as measured by incidence of Lactobacillus plantarum bacteremia.
- To investigate the feasibility of administering Lactobacillus plantarum 299 and 299v to children and adolescents undergoing HSCT.
- To describe the overall incidence of bacteremia in HSCT patients who have been administered Lactobacillus plantarum.
- To describe the overall incidence of acute graft versus host disease (GVHD) in HSCT patients who have been administered Lactobacillus plantarum.
|Condition or disease||Intervention/treatment||Phase|
|Hematopoietic Organs; Disorder||Drug: Lactobacillus plantarum strains 299 and 299v||Phase 1|
|Study Type :||Interventional (Clinical Trial)|
|Actual Enrollment :||31 participants|
|Intervention Model:||Single Group Assignment|
|Masking:||None (Open Label)|
|Primary Purpose:||Supportive Care|
|Official Title:||A Limited Institution Pilot Trial Evaluating the Safety of Administering the Probiotic, Lactobacillus Plantarum, to Children and Adolescents Undergoing Allogenic Hematopoietic Stem Cell Transplantation (HSCT) - A Pilot Study|
|Study Start Date :||February 2010|
|Actual Primary Completion Date :||October 2014|
|Actual Study Completion Date :||October 2014|
Experimental: Lactobacillus plantarum
There is a single intervention arm in this study. Target accrual for the intervention is 30 subjects. Subjects receive supplementation with Lactobacillus plantarum strains 299 and 299v.
Drug: Lactobacillus plantarum strains 299 and 299v
Patients will receive a daily dose of Lactobacillus plantarum: 1 x10^8 CFU/kg/day. This supplement will be supplied in sachets of powder and will be mixed in water (certain water-based liquid) that is no warmer that 37o C.
Colony forming units (CFU)
Other Name: Probiotics
- Number of Lactobacillus Plantarum Bacteremia Infections [ Time Frame: 36 days (day -7 to +28 of HSCT) ]
- Adherence With the Prescribed Dose, Measured as the Percentage of Prescribed Probiotic Doses [ Time Frame: 22 days (day -7 to +14 of HSCT) ]To determine the feasibility of administration of L. plantarum 299 and 299v. The treatment is considered feasible for a patient if he/she received at least 50% of the probiotic dose (>= 11 days of treatment).
- Number of Non-lactobacillus Infections [ Time Frame: 36 days (day -7 to +28 of HSCT) ]To determine incidence of bacteremia in HSCT patients who have been administered lactobacillus plantarum.
- Number of Acute Graft Versus Host Disease (GVHD) Events in HSCT Patients Who Have Been Administered Lactobacillus Plantarum [ Time Frame: Up to Day +100 of HSCT ]
