A Randomized, Double-blind, Placebo-controlled Trial to Evaluate Palifermin (rHuKGF) in the Reduction of Acute Graft Versus Host Disease in Subjects With Hematologic Malignancies Undergoing Allogeneic Marrow/PBPC Transplantation

The main purpose of this study is to evaluate the effect of palifermin versus placebo in the reduction of severe acute graft versus host disease (GVHD) and severe oral mucositis.
