This is a research study to find out if the study drug called BEAM-101 is safe and effective in the treatment of patients with severe Sickle cell disease (SCD). The study drug, BEAM-101 is a new investigational (experimental) therapy that is the first in human use of this drug.
The study medication uses patients' own stem cells that are harvested through apheresis (process where blood is removed, stem cells collected and blood is returned), changed by genetic modification, and transplanted back into the individual through intravenous infusion to treat severe SCD.
Participation in this study is expected to last approximately 24 months, starting at time of screening, through the collection of cells, transplantation of study drug, and 15-month follow-up period. Study visits during the screen and mobilization period will vary depending on the cell collection process, in other words, the mobilization and collection period could be 3 separate visits to harvest adequate stem cells. Subjects are then hospitalized for the conditioning period, transplantation of study drug and engraftment period (when blood counts return to normal). The follow up visits after discharge from the hospital will be monthly for the first 6 months, then every other month until 24 months post transplant period.
At the end of the 24 months, all participants will be asked to enroll in the long-term extension study for a duration of 13 years making the total follow-up period of 15 years.
This is a randomized study to test a smartphone app that a pharmacist will use to help kidney transplant patients track their medications, blood pressures, and blood sugars if they have diabetes. The goal of this study is to improve care and outcomes in kidney transplant patients and, in particular, help African American patients have better outcomes after transplant.
The purpose of this study is to find out if there is a difference in how well the standard MUSC cytomegalovirus (CMV) prevention medicine works, compared to a different medicine, in preventing CMV infections in kidney transplant recipients who are at risk for this type of infection, while also assessing the tolerability of these two regimens. The two medication regimens being compared are valganciclovir (FDA approved to prevent and treat CMV infection) vs maribavir (FDA approved to treat CMV infection) plus acyclovir (FDA approved to prevent HSV infection).
This study is for patients that have had hematopoietic stem cell transplants and/or have been donors. The purpose of this study is to see how well transplant works in adults with a MMUD using stem cells from a donor's blood, and in children with a MMUD using stem cells from a donor's bone marrow.This study treatment does not include any investigational drugs. The medicines and procedures in this study are standard for transplant. Participants can expect to be on this study for approximately 1 year.
This research study is being done to determine whether it is safe to give a kidney transplant from a donor with hepatitis C to a patient without hepatitis C. This study is looking for participants in need of a kidney transplant who are willing to accept a kidney from a patient with hepatitis C.
This is a research study to find out if a study drug called EDIT-301 is safe and effective in treatment of patients with severe Sickle Cell Disease (SCD). The EDIT-301 study medicine is a new investigational therapy, which in this case means this is first-in-human use of this study drug. This study medication uses patients' own stem cells, modifies the cells with genetic modification, and transplants them back to the patient (by infusion) to treat SCD.
Participation in this study is expected to last approximately 30 months, including time for screening, collection of cells, transplant, and a 24 month follow-up period after transplant. At the end of that 24 month follow-up, the participant will be asked to participate in an additional long-term follow-up study, totaling 15 years of post-transplant follow-up.
The primary purpose of this registry is to evaluate the feasibility and clinical validation of LiverCare in liver transplant recipients, as part of post-transplant surveillance. LiverCare is an investigational panel test that includes 6 components: 1. AlloSure Liver 2. AlloMap Liver 3. AlloHeme Liver 4. iBox Liver 5. HistoMap Liver 6. AlloID. AlloSure Liver is a research test used to measure donor-derived cell free DNA in Liver transplant recipients. AlloMap Liver is a research gene expression profile test using peripheral blood to establish immune activity and is currently undergoing clinical evaluation and development. iBox Liver is an analytic platform that predicts organ outcomes after transplant using a software algorithm based on information from your medical records and is currently undergoing clinical evaluation and development. AlloHeme Liver is a diagnostic test to measure donor and recipient DNA in the blood. HistoMap Liver is a tissue-based gene expression test using tissue collected from standard of care biopsies to establish immune profiles within the organ and is currently undergoing clinical evaluation and development. AlloID is a blood test that will quantify the presence of more than 100 pathogens including standard post-transplant infectious disease screening such as Cytomegalovirus (CMV), Epstein-Barr virus (EBV), adenovirus, Human Herpesvirus 6 (HHV-6) and viral hepatitis.
