  Purpose

The purpose of this study is to evaluate the potential clinical benefit of pre-emptive cytomegalovirus (CMV)-specific adoptive cellular therapy following T cell depleted allogeneic hematopoietic stem cell transplantation (HSCT) for reducing recurrent CMV reactivation.

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Cytomegalovirus (CMV) specific immune reconstitution [ Time Frame: First two months ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Primary endpoint will be the peak number of circulating Cytomegalovirus (CMV)-reactive T cells within the first two months, after single positive cytomegalovirus PCR result (or post adoptive cell therapy infusion)
