Vorinostat, Tacrolimus, and Methotrexate in Preventing GVHD After Stem Cell Transplant in Patients With Hematological Malignancies
A Pilot Trial of Vorinostat Plus Tacrolimus and Methotrexate to Prevent Graft Versus Host Disease Following Unrelated Donor Hematopoietic Stem Cell Transplantation
This pilot phase II trial studies how well giving vorinostat, tacrolimus, and methotrexate works in preventing graft-versus-host disease (GVHD) after stem cell transplant in patients with hematological malignancies. Vorinostat, tacrolimus, and methotrexate may be an effective treatment for GVHD caused by a bone marrow transplant.

PRIMARY OBJECTIVES:

I. To assess the safety and the feasibility of the addition of vorinostat to tacrolimus and methotrexate GVHD prophylaxis.

SECONDARY OBJECTIVES:

I. To determine day 100 grades 2-4 acute GVHD. II. To determine 1-year overall survival and relapse-free survival. III. To correlate plasma concentrations of inflammatory markers of acute GVHD. IV. To correlate protein acetylation in peripheral blood mononuclear cells before and after administration of vorinostat.

OUTLINE:

Patients receive vorinostat orally (PO) twice daily (BID) on days -10 to 100. Beginning on day -3, patients receive tacrolimus intravenously (IV) continuously or PO BID (or cyclosporine IV continuously or PO in patients unable to tolerate tacrolimus) with taper on days 100-180.Patients also receive methotrexate IV once daily (QD) on days 1, 3, 6, and 11.

After completion of study treatment, patients are followed up periodically for 1 year.

    • Intermediate-2 risk or high risk disease
    • Patients should have extinguished standard of care options prior to being considered for this trial
  • Chronic lymphocytic leukemia

    • Complete remission: the disease is completely absent and no relapse occurred prior to the preparative regimen; requires all of the following:

      • Nodular partial remission: complete response with persistent lymphoid nodules in bone marrow
      • Partial remission: reduction of more than 50% in the disease burden regardless of the number of lines of therapy received
  • Mature B cell malignancies

    • Patients should have extinguished standard of care options prior to being considered eligible for this trial
    • First complete remission (CR1) confirmed: complete disappearance of all known disease; the term "confirmed" is defined as a laboratory and/or pathological or radiographic determination.
    • CR1 unconfirmed (CRU1): complete disappearance of all known disease with the exception of persistent scan abnormalities of unknown significance; the term "unconfirmed" is defined as scan abnormalities of unknown significance that are not biopsied or otherwise evaluated
    • Second or subsequent complete remission (CR2+) confirmed: the recipient relapsed, then achieved complete absence of disease without radiographic evidence of disease
    • CR2+ unconfirmed: the recipient has achieved a second or subsequent complete response but has persistent radiographic abnormalities of unknown significance.

  • Life expectancy of greater than 6 months
  • Total bilirubin =< 2.5 mg% (unless from Gilbert's disease or disease-related)

  • Forced vital capacity (FVC) > 50%
  • Ejection fraction >= 50%
  • The effects of vorinostat on the developing human fetus are unknown; for this reason and because histone deacetylase inhibitor agents as well as other therapeutic agents used in this trial (e.g., tacrolimus and methotrexate) are known to be teratogenic, women of child-bearing potential and men must agree to use adequate contraception (hormonal or barrier method of birth control; abstinence) prior to study entry and for the duration of study participation; should a woman become pregnant or suspect she is pregnant while she or her partner is participating in this study, she should inform her treating physician immediately; men treated or enrolled on this protocol must also agree to use adequate contraception prior to the study, for the duration of study participation, and 4 months after completion of vorinostat administration
  • Ability to understand and the willingness to sign a written informed consent document
  • Patients must be able to swallow capsules/tablets

Exclusion Criteria:

  • Patients who are not a candidate for an unrelated donor allogeneic HSCT based on the current institutional bone marrow transplant (BMT) program clinical practice guidelines; organ function criteria will be utilized per the current institutional BMT program clinical practice guidelines; there will be no restriction to study entry based on hematological parameters
  • History of allergic reactions attributed to compounds of similar chemical or biologic composition to vorinostat
  • Patients undergoing a total body irradiation (TBI)-based conditioning regimen (TBI 1200 centigray [cGy])
  • Uncontrolled intercurrent illness including, but not limited to, ongoing or active infection, symptomatic congestive heart failure, unstable angina pectoris, cardiac arrhythmia, or psychiatric illness/social situations that would limit compliance with study requirements; patients still under therapy for presumed or proven infection are eligible provided there is clear evidence (radiographic findings and/or culture results) that the infection is well-controlled; patients under treatment for infection will be enrolled only after clearance from the Principal Investigator (PI)
  • Pregnant women are excluded from this study because vorinostat is a histone deacetylase inhibitor agent with the potential for teratogenic or abortifacient effects; because there is an unknown but potential risk for adverse events in nursing infants secondary to treatment of the mother with vorinostat, breastfeeding should be discontinued if the mother is treated with vorinostat
  • Patients with evidence of human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) seropositivity and/or positive polymerase chain reaction (PCR) assay, human T-lymphotropic virus (HTLV)1/HTLV2 seropositivity; the safety of allogeneic HSCT is not yet well-established for this population
  • Patients with evidence of hepatitis B or hepatitis C PCR positivity; hepatitis reactivation following myelosuppressive therapy can lead to fatal complications
  • Patients with a history of prolonged corrected QT interval (QTc) syndrome
  • Patients asking or who have had prior treatment with a drug like vorinostat (i.e., valproic acid) within the last 30 days
