up to 25 Years old
This study is NOT accepting healthy volunteers
Inclusion Criteria:

• Diagnosis of severe form of EB characterized by collagen, laminin, integrin, keratin or plakin deficiency (by immunofluorescence staining with protein specific antibodies or Western blotting and by mutation analysis).
• Adequate organ function within 4 weeks of study registration defined as:
• Renal: glomerular filtration rate within normal range for age
• Hepatic: Hepatic: bilirubin, AST/ALT, ALP < 5 x upper limit of normal
• Pulmonary: adequate pulmonary function in the opinion of the enrolling investigator
• Cardiac: left ventricular ejection fraction ≥ 45%, normal EKG or approved by Cardiology for transplant
• Sexually active participants must agree to use adequate birth control for the during the study period (from before the start of the preparative chemotherapy through 1 year post-transplant)
• Available donor per section 5: targeted MFI < 1,000 (MFI exceeding 1000 must be approved by the PI and treatment team.)
• Voluntary written consent - adult or parent (with information sheet for minors, if applicable) prior to any research related procedures or treatment
Exclusion Criteria:

• beta 3 laminin JEB mutants
• Active untreated systemic infection at time of transplantation (including active infection with Aspergillus or other mold within 30 days)
• History of HIV infection
• Evidence of squamous cell carcinoma
• Pregnant or breast feeding. Females of child-bearing potential must have a negative pregnancy test prior to study registration as the agents administered in this study are Pregnancy Category C and D.
