Present research in Stem Cell Transplantation concentrates on improving transplant result with immune controls making use of cell therapy and lymphocyte development factors. Stem cell transplantation offers the chance of cure for leukemia patients through an one-of-a-kind graft-versus-leukemia GVL impact gave by an immune response of the donor graft versus the patient's leukemia. GVHD can be controlled with minimizing the resistance of the graft and while transplants for leukemia can now be performed with significant security, deadly viral infections and disease regression still minimize the success of SCT as a treatment for leukemia. A clinical trial showing the security of infusions of virus specific lymphocyte infusions to avoid several virus infections has been finished and a test of leukemia specific T cell mixtures is now being created. An emerging concept from this work is that leukemia cells develop numerous methods to turn off the immune response that might otherwise effectively remove the leukemia. The study team medical professional will review the condition of the patient and determine if they are eligible. The patient obtains immunosuppressive therapy with succeeding IV transfer of stem cells from the donor. The patient is required to go to research brows through at days 0, 100, 6m, 18m and 24 m.
