Seamless QOL (H-50286 )
Seamless Phase II-Phase III Randomized Clinical Trial to Identify and Confirm the Most Promising Novel Intervention to Alleviate Morbidity and Mortality after Allogeneic Hematopoietic Cell Transplantation Among Older, Medically Infirm, or Frail Patients with Hematological Diseases
This phase II/III trial studies the best approach in improving quality of life and survival after a donor stem cell transplant in older, weak, or frail patients with blood diseases. Patients who have undergone a transplant often experience increases in disease and death. One approach, supportive and palliative care (SPC), focuses on relieving symptoms of stress from serious illness and care through physical, cultural, psychological, social, spiritual, and ethical aspects. While a second approach, clinical management of comorbidities (CMC) focuses on managing multiple diseases, other than cancer, such as heart or lung diseases through physical exercise, strength training, stress reduction, medication management, dietary recommendations, and education. Giving SPC, CMC, or a combination of both may work better in improving quality of life and survival after a donor stem cell transplant compared to standard of care in patients with blood diseases.
Age requirements: Age 65 years or older
