Acute myeloid leukemia (AML) is a cancer of the blood and bone marrow. Although a blood stem cell transplant from a healthy donor can help, sometimes relapse of the disease may occur. A clinical trial led by Nirali N. Shah, M.D., M.H.Sc., Lasker Clinical Research Scholar in the Pediatric Oncology Branch, is researching a stem cell therapy to reduce potential relapse for AML. The trial will take place at the NIH Clinical Center in Bethesda, Maryland, and there is no cost for participation.
