  Purpose
This phase II trial studies how well sirolimus, cyclosporine and mycophenolate mofetil works in preventing graft-vs-host disease (GVHD) in patients with hematologic malignancies undergoing donor peripheral blood stem cell (PBSC) transplant. Giving chemotherapy and total-body irradiation before a donor peripheral blood stem cell transplant helps stop the growth of cancer cells. It may also stop the patient's immune system from rejecting the donor's stem cells. When the healthy stem cells from a donor are infused into the patient they may help the patient's bone marrow make stem cells, red blood cells, white blood cells, and platelets. Sometimes the transplanted cells from a donor can make an immune response against the body's normal cells. Giving total-body irradiation together with sirolimus, cyclosporine, and mycophenolate mofetil before and after transplant may stop this from happening.

Detailed Description:

PRIMARY OBJECTIVES:

I. To determine whether the incidence of acute GVHD grades II-IV can be reduced to less than the historical rate of 70% with the triple-immunosuppressant combination of cyclosporine (CSP)/mycophenolate mofetil (MMF) with sirolimus in human leukocyte antigens (HLA) class I or class II mismatched related or unrelated donor hematopoietic cell transplantation (HCT) using nonmyeloablative conditioning. The evaluation will be carried out separately among class I and class II mismatched patients.

SECONDARY OBJECTIVES:

I. To evaluate the incidence of non-relapse mortality before day 100.

II. To evaluate the incidences of grades III-IV acute GVHD.

OUTLINE:

CONDITIONING: Patients receive fludarabine phosphate intravenously (IV) over 30 minutes on days -4 to -2. Patients also undergo total-body irradiation on day 0.

TRANSPLANTATION: Patients undergo allogeneic peripheral blood stem cell transplantation.

IMMUNOSUPPRESSION: Patients receive sirolimus orally (PO) once daily (QD) on days -3 to 180 with taper to day 365; cyclosporine PO twice daily (BID) on days -3 to 150 with taper to day 180; and mycophenolate mofetil PO thrice daily (TID) on days 0-30 and then BID to day 100 with taper to day 150.

After completion of study treatment, patients are followed up at 6 months and every year thereafter.

  • DONOR: Related or unrelated volunteer donors who are mismatched with the recipient within one of the following limitations:

    • Mismatch for one HLA class I antigen with or without an additional mismatch for one HLA-class I allele, but matched for HLA-DRB1 and HLA-DQ, OR
    • Mismatched for two HLA class I alleles, but matched for HLA-DRB1 and HLA-DQ, OR
    • HLA class I HLA-A, -B, -C allele matched donors allowing for any one or two DRB1 and/or DQB1 antigen allele mismatch
  • DONOR: HLA-matching must be based on results of high resolution typing at HLA-A, -B, -C, -DRB1, and -DQB
  • DONOR: If the patient is homozygous at the mismatch HLA class I locus or II locus, the donor must be heterozygous at that locus and one allele must match the patient (i.e., patient is homozygous A*01:01 and donor is heterozygous A*01:01, A*02:01); this mismatch will be considered a one-antigen mismatch for rejection only
  • DONOR: Donors are excluded when preexisting immunoreactivity is identified that would jeopardize donor hematopoietic cell engraftment; this determination is based on the standard practice of the individual institution; the donor should be excluded if any of the flow cytometric B and T cell cytotoxic cross match assays are positive

  • Corrected diffusion capacity of carbon monoxide (DLCO) < 40%, total lung capacity (TLC) < 40%, forced expiratory volume in one second (FEV1) < 40% and/or receiving supplementary continuous oxygen
  • The FHCRC PI of the study must approve of enrollment of all patients with pulmonary nodules
  • Patients with clinical or laboratory evidence of liver disease would be evaluated for the cause of liver disease, its clinical severity in terms of liver function, and the degree of portal hypertension; patients will be excluded if they are found to have fulminant liver failure, cirrhosis of the liver with evidence of portal hypertension, alcoholic hepatitis, esophageal varices, a history of bleeding esophageal varices, hepatic encephalopathy, uncorrectable hepatic synthetic dysfunction evinced by prolongation of the prothrombin time, ascites related to portal hypertension, bridging fibrosis, bacterial or fungal liver abscess, biliary obstruction, chronic viral hepatitis with total serum bilirubin > 3 mg/dL, or symptomatic biliary disease

  • DONOR: Donor (or centers) who will exclusively donate marrow
  • DONOR: Donors who are HIV-positive and/or, medical conditions that would result in increased risk for G-CSF mobilization and harvest of PBSC
  • DONOR: Patients who are homozygous at the mismatched HLA class I locus or II locus, the donor is excluded if homozygous at the mismatched locus (i.e., patient is homozygous A*01:01 and donor is homozygous A*02:01); this type of mismatch is considered a two-antigen mismatch and is not allowed
