You are invited to be in this research study. Being in this research study is
voluntary – you don’t have to be in this research study to get treated. If you
decide not to be in the study your doctor will still take care of you.
The goal of this study is to see whether the type of match you have with the
donor effects how well the transplant works. Specifically, the research doctor is
interested in seeing whether bone marrow matched for a chemical called KIR
effects whether you are more likely or less likely to be cured, or more likely or
less likely to have side effects.
About 1 tablespoon of blood will be drawn from you (by a needle, or through your
central line) to test for KIR on your blood cells and donor blood cells before the
transplant. Your nurse of doctor will draw four more samples of blood to test for
KIR at 1 month, 3 months, 6 months, and one year after the transplant. This
extra blood will be drawn when you are having other blood tests done.
We will also get some medical information from your records and hospital chart.
The main risk of being in this research is from the extra blood tests. If a needle is
used, then there is a risk of pain or bruising, or infection. There is also a chance
that the information we collect about you could be found out by people outside
the study.
