(PBMTC 13-TLEC) Natural History and Biology of Long-Term Effects Following Hematopoietic Cell Transplant for Childhood Hematologic Malignancies
This is a prospective non-therapeutic study, assessing the long-term toxicity of pediatric HCT for hematologic malignancies. This study is a collaboration between the Pediatric Blood and Marrow Transplant Consortium (PBMTC), the Center for International Blood and Marrow Transplant Research (CIBMTR), the National Marrow Transplant Program (NMDP) and the Resource for Clinical Investigation in Blood and Marrow Transplantation (RCI-BMT) of the CIBMTR. The study will enroll pediatric patients who undergo myeloablative HCT for hematologic malignancies at PBMTC sites. The study examines the hypothesis that survivors of pediatric HCT are at risk for late organ toxicity and they will have identifiable biomarkers present within the first two years following HCT which will be predictive for late adverse outcomes allowing for early identification of patients at risk.
