Official Title

A Multicenter Access and Distribution Protocol for Unlicensed Cryopreserved Cord Blood Units (CBUs) for Transplantation in Pediatric and Adult Patients With Hematologic Malignancies and Other Indications

Brief Overview

This study is an access and distribution protocol for unlicensed cryopreserved cord blood units (CBUs) in pediatric and adult patients with hematologic malignancies and other indications.

Description

Principal Investigators:
The principal investigators (PIs) will be transplant physicians at all participating U.S. transplant centers.
Study Design:
This study is an access and distribution protocol for unlicensed cryopreserved cord blood units (CBUs) in pediatric and adult patients with hematologic malignancies and other indications.
Primary Objective:
The primary objective of this study is to examine the incidence of neutrophil recovery of ≥500/mm3 after cord blood transplantation in a multi-institution setting using CBUs that are not Food and Drug Administration (FDA) licensed.
Secondary Objectives:
In patients receiving a non-licensed CBU:
- Assess incidence of transmission of infection
- Assess incidence of serious infusion reaction
- Determine 1 year overall survival after cord blood transplantation
- Assess cumulative incidence of acute graft vs. host disease (GVHD) grades II to IV and grades III to IV
- Assess cumulative incidence of chronic GVHD
- Determine platelet engraftment of >20,000 mcL and >50,000 mcL

Eligibility

Inclusion Criteria:
- Disorders affecting the hematopoietic system that are inherited, acquired, or result from myeloablative treatment
- Signed informed consent (and signed assent, if applicable) obtained prior to study enrollment
- Pediatric and adult patients of any age
Exclusion Criteria:
- Patients who are receiving only licensed CBUs
- Cord blood transplant recipients at international transplant centers
- Patients who are enrolled on another IND protocol to access the unlicensed CBU(s)
- Patients whose selected unlicensed CBU(s) will be more than minimally manipulated
