I. Determine the efficacy, in terms of disease progression, of high-dose cyclophosphamide and total body irradiation with T lymphocyte-depleted autologous peripheral blood stem cell or bone marrow rescue in patients with multiple sclerosis.
|Condition or disease||Intervention/treatment||Phase|
|Multiple Sclerosis||Drug: cyclophosphamide Drug: filgrastim Drug: methylprednisolone Procedure: Autologous Stem Cell Transplantation||Phase 1|
PROTOCOL OUTLINE: Following an induction course of cyclophosphamide IV, patients receive filgrastim (G-CSF) subcutaneously (SC) daily until the completion of peripheral blood stem cell (PBSC) harvesting. PBSCs are collected over several days. Patients who do not mobilize sufficient cells undergo bone marrow harvest. Harvested PBSCs or bone marrow then undergo T-lymphocyte depletion.
Patients receive cyclophosphamide IV over 1 hour on days -6 and -5 and methylprednisolone IV daily on days -4 to -1. Patients also undergo total body irradiation twice a day on days -4 to -1. Lymphocyte-depleted PBSCs or bone marrow is reinfused on day 0. Patients receive G-CSF SC daily beginning on day 0 and continuing until blood counts have recovered for 3 days.
Patients are followed at 1, 2, 3, 6, and 12 months and then annually for 5 years.
