A Study Using Tacrolimus, Sirolimus and Bortezomib as Acute Graft Versus Host Disease (GVHD) Prophylaxis in Allogeneic Peripheral Blood Stem Cell (PBSC) Transplantation
The purpose of this study is determine the highest dose of bortezomib, a new drug for graft-versus host disease prevention, that can be given in combination with sirolimus and Tacrolimus, without causing severe side effects. This research is being done because there is no treatment that is 100% effective in preventing graft versus host disease.
The goals of this study are to:
- Collect peripheral blood stem cells (PBSCs) from donors for transplant.
- Determine the largest possible dose of bortezomib that can be given to recipients with various blood cancers in a safe manner.
- Monitor the recipient for risk of infection or side affects associated with the transplant.
- Monitor the recipient for increased immunity following transplantation.

|Official Title:||A Phase I Study Using Tacrolimus, Sirolimus and Bortezomib as Acute Graft Versus Host Disease Prophylaxis in Allogeneic Peripheral Blood Stem Cell (PBSC) Transplantation|
- To evaluate the maximum tolerated dose (MTD) of bortezomib in combination with tacrolimus and sirolimus as GVHD prophylaxis in patients undergoing myeloablative allogeneic peripheral blood stem cell transplantation. [ Time Frame: Baseline through end of study ]
- To assess the toxicity of bortezomib [ Time Frame: Baseline through end of study ]

|Primary Completion Date:||July 2012 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)|
Administered intravenously on day 0 (a minimum of 6 hours post-infusion of PBSC), and on day +3. The following dose levels will be used:
Cohort 1 (3-6 pts): 1 mg/m2 on days 0 and +3
Cohort 2 (3-6 pts): 1.3 mg/m2 on days 0 and +3
Cohort 3 (3-10 pts): 1.6 mg/m2 on days 0 and +3
