RATIONALE: Drugs used in chemotherapy use different ways to stop cancer cells from dividing so they stop growing or die. Combining chemotherapy with donor bone marrow transplantation may allow the doctor to give higher doses of chemotherapy drugs and kill more cancer cells.
PURPOSE: Phase II trial to study the effectiveness of busulfan and cyclophosphamide followed by bone marrow transplantation in treating patients who have acute myelogenous leukemia or myelodysplastic syndrome.
|Condition or disease||Intervention/treatment||Phase|
|Leukemia Myelodysplastic Syndromes Myelodysplastic/Myeloproliferative Diseases||Drug: busulfan Drug: cyclophosphamide Procedure: allogeneic bone marrow transplantation Procedure: bone marrow ablation with stem cell support Radiation: radiation therapy||Phase 2|
- Determine the remission duration, disease-free survival, and overall survival of patients with acute myelogenous leukemia in remission or early relapse or myelodysplastic syndrome treated with high-dose busulfan and cyclophosphamide followed by allogeneic bone marrow transplantation.
OUTLINE: Patients receive oral high-dose busulfan every 6 hours for 14-16 doses on days -9 to -6, followed by high-dose cyclophosphamide IV over 1 hour on days -5 to -2. Allogeneic bone marrow is infused on day 0.
Patients who have already had 1 transplant receive high-dose cyclophosphamide IV on days -6 and -5, total body irradiation twice a day on days -4 to -1, and allogeneic bone marrow infusion on day 0.
All patients receive prophylaxis for graft versus host disease.
Patients are followed every 6 months for at least 2 years.
PROJECTED ACCRUAL: A total of 25-40 patients will be accrued for this study.
