Experimental: All Patients
Toclizumab will be administered on Day 0. The administration of tocilizumab will be every 2 weeks for a total of 8 doses.
8 mg/kg IV, once every 1-2 weeks. The maximum dose per infusion should not exceed 800 mg.
Other Name: ACTEMRA®
- Number of Subjects With GVHD Who Are Tolerable to Tocilizumab After Having Failed Response to Glucocorticosteroid Treatment [ Time Frame: Day 28 ]Both subjects enrolled on this study experienced failed response to glucocorticosteroid treatment but were able to tolerate tocilizumab. We were unable to collect extensive data on these 2 subjects because they both died early on in the study due to disease complications.
- Disease-free Overall Survival at 100 Days, 6 Months and One Year From the Time of the First Tocilizumab Infusion. [ Time Frame: Approximately 1 year ]We were unable to evaluate disease-free survival at 100 days, 6 months and one year from the time of the first tocilizumab infusion. All subjects enrolled on this study died before this time point and the study closed to enrollment due to slow accrual.
- Toclizumab Response in Each Organ [ Time Frame: 1 year ]
- Effect of Toclizumab on Karnofsky Performance Status [ Time Frame: 1 year ]
