Brief Summary:


I. Determine the effectiveness of moderate dose cyclophosphamide and radiotherapy in terms of improving survival and reducing the morbidity following allogeneic bone marrow transplantation in patients with myelodysplastic syndrome and acute leukemia related to Fanconi's anemia.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Fanconi's Anemia Myelodysplastic Syndromes Leukemia, Nonlymphocytic, Acute Leukemia, Lymphocytic, Acute Drug: cyclophosphamide Procedure: Allogeneic Bone Marrow Transplantation Not Applicable

Detailed Description:


Patients receive cyclophosphamide IV over 1-2 hours on day -6 through -3 and total body radiotherapy on day -1. Patients undergo allogeneic bone marrow transplantation on day 0.

Study Type : Interventional  (Clinical Trial)
Primary Purpose: Treatment
Study Start Date : March 2000
