UBMT17044 / HBO-UBC / Omar AljitawiResearch Question:
Will the use of hyperbaric oxygen (HBO) therapy prior to the UCB transplant improve
the stem cell homing, and subsequently, the engraftment?
Basic Study Information
Purpose:Location: University of Rochester Medical Center
The UCB transplant is a type of stem cell transplant used to treat cancer of the blood
or lymph glands. The UCB transplant has advantages over other types of transplants
such as ease of obtaining the umbilical cord blood, absence of donor risks, reduced
risks of contagious infections, and the availability for immediate use. The UCB transplant
is also associated with a lower incidence of graft versus host disease, or GvHD (in
GvHD, the transplanted graft attacks the recipient organs).
