In 2009, the St. Baldrick's Foundation awarded a grant to the Pediatric Blood and Marrow Transplant Consortium (PBMTC) to construct a clinical trials infrastructure that would allow high-quality, appropriately monitored, multi-center pediatric trials. This grant,awarded in 2010, moves that project further towards its goals of: 1) increasing safety for pediatric patients after transplant by using a new medicine that has been shown in adults to treat leukemia with lower toxicity, 2) reducing relapse by giving immune therapy before and after transplant to leukemia patients, and 3) exploring the feasibility of new cellular therapy approaches aimed at preventing relapse.
