Trial Information

Evaluation of Immunoregulatory Cells in Hematopoietic Stem Cell Transplant (HSCT)


The investigators' hypothesis is that the graft-versus-tumor effect can be enhanced while
minimizing the complications of graft-versus-host disease (GVHD) by determining the
qualitative and quantitative changes in T regulatory cells throughout the transplant
process. Their understanding of this can lead to new treatment strategies and improved
clinical therapeutic implications.
