  Purpose

This phase II trial studies the side effects and best dose of total-body irradiation when given together with fludarabine phosphate followed by a donor peripheral stem cell transplant in treating patients with myelodysplastic syndromes (MDS) or myeloproliferative disorders (MPD). Giving low doses of chemotherapy, such as fludarabine phosphate, and total-body irradiation before a donor peripheral blood stem cell transplant helps stop the growth of cancer cells. Giving chemotherapy or radiation therapy before or after transplant also stops the patient's immune system from rejecting the donor's stem cells. The donated stem cells may replace the patient's immune cells and help destroy any remaining cancer cells (graft-versus-tumor effect). Sometimes the transplanted cells from a donor can also make an immune response against the body's normal cells. Giving cyclosporine and mycophenolate mofetil after the transplant may stop this from happening.

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Decrease of incidence of HCT failure to less than 20% [ Time Frame: At 200 days ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    HCT failure will be defined as graft rejection (defined as < 5% donor T-cell chimerism) or disease progression within 200 days of transplant. 80% confidence intervals will be used.


Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Rate of relapse/progression in patients with MPD or MDS-RA and those with CMML or MDS-RAEB [ Time Frame: 5 years ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Evidence of disease progression will be an indication for therapeutic intervention. Defined as any evidence by morphologic or flow cytometric evaluation of the bone marrow aspirate of an incremental increase in 5% blasts in MDS/CMML; defined as any evidence of blastic transformation in agnogenic myeloid metaplasia/atypical CML; and defined as progressive erythrocytosis, thrombocytosis, or evidence of leukemic transformation in polycythemia vera and essential thrombocythemia. 80% confidence intervals will be used.

  • Probability of progression-free survival in patients with MPD or MDS-RA and those with CMML or MDS-RAEB [ Time Frame: 5 years ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    80% confidence intervals will be used.

  • Kinetics of donor engraftment in peripheral blood and whole bone marrow [ Time Frame: 1 year post-transplant ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Assessed by mixed or full donor chimerism. Mixed chimerism will be defined as the detection of donor T-cells (CD3+) and granulocytes (CD 33+), as a proportion of the total T-cell and granulocyte population, respectively, of greater than 5% and less than 95% in the peripheral blood. Full donor chimerism is defined as >= 95% donor CD3+ T-cells.

  • Incidence of infections [ Time Frame: 5 years ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]

II. The probability of progression free survival (PFS) in patients with MPD or MDS-RA and those with CMML or MDS-RAEB.

III. The kinetics of donor engraftment.

IV. The incidence of infections.

OUTLINE: This is a dose-escalation study of total body irradiation (TBI).

NONMYELOABLATIVE CONDITIONING REGIMEN: Patients receive fludarabine phosphate intravenously (IV) on days -4 to -2 and undergo TBI on day 0.

PERIPHERAL BLOOD STEM CELL (PBSC) TRANSPLANTATION: Patients undergo filgrastim (G-CSF)-mobilized PBSC infusion after TBI on day 0.

IMMUNOSUPPRESSION:

Matched Related Donor: Patients receive cyclosporine orally (PO) twice daily (BID) on days -3 to 56, followed by a taper until day 180. Patients also receive mycophenolate mofetil (MMF) PO BID beginning 4-6 hours after transplantation on day 0 and continue until day 27.

Unrelated Donor: Patients receive cyclosporine PO BID on days -3 to 100, followed by a taper until day 180. Patients also receive MMF PO three times daily beginning 4-6 hours after transplantation on day 0 and continue until day 40, followed by a taper until day 96.

After completion of study treatment, patients are followed periodically.
