The combination of chemotherapy and radiation described in the study is considered 'low intensity.' Although the chemotherapy agents used in this study and for transplant are FDA approved, the chemotherapy treatment and conditioning regimens or combinations listed in this consent are not yet FDA approved.
The CliniMACS device is FDA approved for one type of T cell depletion (positive selection of the stem cells) but not approved yet for other type of T cell depletion, which is being studied on this protocol. This pilot study, along with other studies will serve as the basis for FDA approval, if outcomes are favorable.
