The purpose of this study is to evaluate the feasibility and efficacy of reduced-intensity conditioning allogeneic HCT followed by prophylactic dose-escalating DLIs in patients with higher risk MDS.

Condition Phase
Myelodysplastic Syndrome Phase 2

Study Type: Observational
Study Design: Observational Model: Case-Only
Time Perspective: Prospective
Official Title: Reduced-intensity Conditioning Allogeneic Hematopoietic Cell Transplantation Followed by Prophylactic Dose-escalating Donor Lymphocyte Infusions in Higher Risk Myelodysplastic Syndrome

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • relapse incidence,duration of remission [ Time Frame: 4years ]
    The efficacy of the treatment will be measured in terms of relapse incidence and duration of remission (the primary endpoints). The hematopoietic cell donors in the study will include HLA-matched sibling, HLA-matched unrelated donors, and HLA-mismatched familial donors.

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • engraftment, donor chimerism, secondary graft failure,GVHD [ Time Frame: 4 years ]
    •This study will evaluate engraftment, donor chimerism, secondary graft failure, acute and chronic graft-versus-host disease (GVHD), immune recovery, infections, non-relapse mortality, progression-free survival (PFS), and OS.

Biospecimen Retention:   None Retained
This clinical trial will use busulfan, fludarabine, thymoglobulin and methylprednisolone for conditioning therapy, and cyclosporine and methotrexate for prevention of GVHD. All drugs had been previously accepted for administration to human in respective indication and there is no need to further evaluate the efficacy and the safety of each drug separately. Dose-escalating DLI is also widely accepted procedure after allogeneic HCT.

Estimated Enrollment: 20
Study Start Date: November 2010
Estimated Study Completion Date: October 2014
Estimated Primary Completion Date: October 2012 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Detailed Description:

GVHD prophylaxis

  • Cyclosporine 1.5 mg/kg i.v. q 12 hrs beginning on d-1 and changed to oral dosing (with twice the i.v. dose) when oral intake is possible. Tapered beginning between d+30 and d+60.
