Full TitleHematopoietic Cell Transplantation Using Treosulfan-Based Conditioning for the Treatment of Bone Marrow Failure Diseases (BMT CTN) (NMDP)
Chemotherapy is given as part of a “conditioning regimen” before a person with bone marrow failure receives a stem cell transplant. In this study, researchers want to see if adding the chemotherapy drug treosulfan to the conditioning regimen will cause fewer complications and result in a more successful transplant than standard chemotherapy without treosulfan. Other studies using treosulfan show that it causes less damage to organs while being strong enough for transplanted stem cells to grow.
Participants in this study will receive treosulfan with the drugs fludarabine and rATG before stem cell transplantation. These medications are given intravenously (by vein).
Who Can Join
To be eligible for this study, patients must meet several requirements, including:
