Activity Levels in Bone Marrow Transplant Patients

Study Purpose

Participants in this study will be receiving a bone marrow transplant. This study is designed to evaluate correlations between activity levels and length of stay, quality of life, and hand grip strength.

Recruitment Criteria

Accepts Healthy Volunteers

Healthy volunteers are participants who do not have a disease or condition, or related conditions or symptoms

Study Type

An interventional clinical study is where participants are assigned to receive one or more interventions (or no intervention) so that researchers can evaluate the effects of the interventions on biomedical or health-related outcomes.

An observational clinical study is where participants identified as belonging to study groups are assessed for biomedical or health outcomes.

Searching Both is inclusive of interventional and observational studies.

Eligible Ages 18 Years - 99 Years
Gender All

Patients who will be receiving a bone marrow transplant are eligible for this study

Trial Details

Trial ID:

This trial id was obtained from, a service of the U.S. National Institutes of Health, providing information on publicly and privately supported clinical studies of human participants with locations in all 50 States and in 196 countries.


Phase 1: Studies that emphasize safety and how the drug is metabolized and excreted in humans.

Phase 2: Studies that gather preliminary data on effectiveness (whether the drug works in people who have a certain disease or condition) and additional safety data.

Phase 3: Studies that gather more information about safety and effectiveness by studying different populations and different dosages and by using the drug in combination with other drugs.

Phase 4: Studies occurring after FDA has approved a drug for marketing, efficacy, or optimal use.

Bone Marrow Transplant
Additional Details

Participants in this study will be receiving a bone marrow transplant. Participants will be given actigraphs to wear around their waists starting 3 weeks prior to bone marrow transplants until they are discharged from the hospital. Participants will be asked to complete quality of life questionnaires and hand grip tests at three separate time points during their hospitalizations. All data gathered from these activities will be compared with patients' activity levels gathered from the actigraphs both before and during the hospitalization. This study is designed to determine the relationship between activity levels and length of stay, quality of life, and hand grip strength.
