  Purpose

We plan to investigate prospectively and simultaneously skin and blood DC subtypes, their donor/recipient origin and the correlation of DC reconstitution kinetics with treatment, clinical outcome and incidence of aGvHD in patients undergoing allogeneic hematopoietic stem cell transplantation.

Estimated Enrollment: 50
Study Start Date: January 2005
Estimated Study Completion Date: January 2010
Detailed Description:

Blood and skin DC reconstitution shall be investigated in patients affected by hematological diseases and receiving HLA-matched, mobilized peripheral blood stem cells from related or unrelated donors. We plan to simultaneously collect and process double biopsies, i.e. from graft versus host disease affected and non-lesional skin of patients at onset of acute graft versus host disease following allogeneic hematopoietic stem cell transplantation. Emigration assay, Chimerism analysis and immunohistochemistry will be performed.
