CLINICAL TRIAL SUMMARY

MDACC Study No:2006-0018 (clinicaltrials.gov NCT No: NCT00288626)
Title:A Phase II Study of High-Dose Immunosuppressive Therapy (HDIT) Using Carmustine, Etoposide, Cytarabine, and Melphalan (BEAM) + Thymoglobulin, and Autologous CD34+ Hematopoietic Stem Cell Transplant (HCT) for the Treatment of Poor Prognosis Multiple Sclerosis
Principal Investigator:Uday Popat
Treatment Agent:Antithymocyte Globulin; Autologous CD34+ Hematopoietic Progenitor Cells; Carmustine; Cytarabine; Etoposide; Melphalan
Study Status:Closed
Study Description:The goal of the screening portion of this study is to evaluate your disease
condition and find out if you are eligible to take part in the main study. The
screening evaluation in some cases may change your diagnosis, or confirm the
diagnosis you have previously received. Specific testing on organs such as
your lungs, heart, and brain will be done to confirm that you do not have any
medical abnormalities that would increase your risk from the transplant.
