Descriptive Information
Brief Title  ICMJE Dasatinib for Immune Modulation After Donor Stem Cell Transplant for Hematologic Malignancies
Official Title  ICMJE Phase I/II Study of Dasatinib in Recipients of Allogeneic Stem Cell Transplantation for Hematologic Malignancies.
Brief Summary This study uses a drug called dasatinib to produce an anti-cancer effect called large granular lymphocyte cellular expansion. Large granular lymphocytes are blood cells known as natural killer cells that remove cancer cells. Researchers think that dasatinib may cause large granular lymphocyte expansion to happen in patients who have received a blood stem cell transplant (SCT) between 3 to 15 months after the SCT. In this research study, researchers want to find how well dasatinib can be tolerated, the best dose to take of dasatinib and how to estimate how often large granular lymphocytic cellular expansion happens at the best dose of dasatinib.
Detailed Description This is a phase I, dose-escalation study followed by a phase II study.
Study Type  ICMJE Interventional
Study Phase  ICMJE Phase 1
Phase 2
Study Design  ICMJE Intervention Model: Single Group Assignment

  • Myelodysplastic Syndrome
  • Lymphoid Leukemia
Intervention  ICMJE
  • Drug: Dasatinib
    Patients receive dasatinib PO every day (QD) for 6 months.
    Other Names:
    • BMS-354825
    • Sprycel
  • Other: laboratory biomarker analysis
    Correlative studies
Study Arms  ICMJE Experimental: Dasatinib
This is a phase 1 dose escalation study, using a standard 3+3 design. Dasatinib is administered orally once daily in the outpatient setting. Patients who are day 100-180 post transplant will be eligible. The treatment will be started as close to day 100 as possible. The range of days is provided to ensure that patients have recovered from toxicities associated with ASCT and are not deemed ineligible if they were recovering from any toxicity associated with ASCT at day 100.The starting dose of dasatinib is 20 mg daily. The increment of dose escalation is 20 mg per dose level. Thus, there will be 5 dose levels (20 mg, 40 mg, 60 mg, 80 mg and 100 mg, respectively) with 3 patients in each cohort. Patients will continue on dasatinib for 6 months.
  • Drug: Dasatinib

  • Dasatinib use prior to ASCT is allowed
  • Performance status >= 60%
  • Presence of large granular lymphocyte (LGL) clone prior to enrollment will not be an exclusion criterion if the LGL clone is < 25% of T cell population
