RATIONALE: Tacrolimus and mycophenolate mofetil may be an effective treatment for graft-versus-host disease caused by donor stem cell transplantation.
PURPOSE: This phase II trial is studying how well giving tacrolimus together with mycophenolate mofetil works in preventing acute graft-versus-host disease in patients who are undergoing donor stem cell transplantation for advanced hematologic cancer.
|Condition or disease||Intervention/treatment||Phase|
|Chronic Myeloproliferative Disorders Graft Versus Host Disease Leukemia Lymphoma Multiple Myeloma and Plasma Cell Neoplasm Myelodysplastic Syndromes Myelodysplastic/Myeloproliferative Diseases||Drug: mycophenolate mofetil Drug: tacrolimus||Phase 2|
- Determine the efficacy of tacrolimus and mycophenolate mofetil in preventing acute graft-vs-host disease in patients with advanced hematologic malignancies undergoing allogeneic peripheral blood stem cell transplantation.
- Determine the safety of this regimen in these patients.
OUTLINE: This is a non-randomized study.
Patients receive tacrolimus IV continuously or orally twice daily on days -1 to 60 followed by a taper to day 180. Patients also receive mycophenolate mofetil IV over 2 hours or orally twice daily on days 0-60 followed by a taper to day 180. Treatment is discontinued at day 180 in the absence of graft-vs-host disease.
Patients are followed for survival.
PROJECTED ACCRUAL: A total of 5-25 patients will be accrued for this study.
