To Determine the Role of Adding Campath-1H or ATG Given In-vivo in Addition to Fludarabine and Low Dose Busulfex on Outcome in Patients Treated With Reduced Intensity Conditioning
Multi-institutional randomized phase III trial of a non-myeloablative preparative regimen with fludarabine and busulfex with or without anti-lymphocyte antibodies (monoclonal humanized Campath-1H administered s.c. or polyclonal rabbit anti-T lymphocyte antibodies (ATG), combined with low dose and short course cyclosporine A (CSA) and methotrexate (MTX) as the sole agent for prevention of graft-vs-host disease (GVHD) for patients with acute myelogenous leukemia or myelodysplastic syndrome undergoing allogeneic stem cell transplantation from an HLA compatible donor.
Acute Myeloid Leukemia
Drug: Campath-1H /ATG
|Study Design:||Allocation: Randomized
Intervention Model: Parallel Assignment
Masking: Open Label

|Official Title:||Phase III Trial of a Non-myeloablative Preparative Regimen With Fludarabine and Busulfan With or Without Anti-lymphocyte Antibodies (Campath-1H or ATG) for Patients With Acute Myelogenous Leukemia or Myelodysplastic Syndrome Undergoing Allogeneic Stem Cell Transplantation From an HLA Compatible Donor|
- To determine the efficacy of s.c. Campath-1H or ATG in decreasing the incidence and severity of acute and chronic GVHD in patients with AML and MDS treated with non-myeloablative stem cell transplantation.
- Investigate the role of different conditioning regimens on:
- Infection, engraftment relapse rate and disease free survival.
