- Determine the rate of treatment-free remission in young patients with severe autoimmune enteropathy treated with high-dose cyclophosphamide.
- Determine the toxic effects of this drug in these patients.
OUTLINE: Patients receive cyclophosphamide IV over 1 hour on days 1-4. Patients then receive filgrastim (G-CSF) IV or subcutaneously once daily beginning on day 10 and continuing for 3 days or until blood counts recover.
After completion of study treatment, patients are followed periodically for up to 1½ years.
