Clinical Trials Using Cytomegalovirus pp65-Specific Cytotoxic T Lymphocytes
Clinical trials are research studies that involve people. The clinical trials on this list are studying Cytomegalovirus pp65-Specific Cytotoxic T Lymphocytes. All trials on the list are supported by NCI.
NCI’s basic information about clinical trials explains the types and phases of trials and how they are carried out. Clinical trials look at new ways to prevent, detect, or treat disease. You may want to think about taking part in a clinical trial. Talk to your doctor for help in deciding if one is right for you.
Trial of Third Party Donor Derived CMVpp65 Specific T-cells for The Treatment of CMV Infection or Persistent CMV Viremia After Allogeneic Hematopoietic Stem Cell Transplantation
The purpose of this study is to see how well transfusions of T-cells work in treating CMV. Tcells are a type of white blood cell that helps protect the body from infection. A transfusion is the process by which blood from one person is transferred to the blood of another. In this case, the T-cells are made from the blood of donors who are immune to CMV. The T-cells are then grown and taught to attack the CMV virus in a lab.
