(the PI is no longer work at Hadassah)
Multi-institutional randomized phase III trial of a non-myeloablative preparative regimen with fludarabine and busulfex with or without anti-lymphocyte antibodies (monoclonal humanized Campath-1H administered s.c. or polyclonal rabbit anti-T lymphocyte antibodies (ATG), combined with low dose and short course cyclosporine A (CSA) and methotrexate (MTX) as the sole agent for prevention of graft-vs-host disease (GVHD) for patients with acute myelogenous leukemia or myelodysplastic syndrome undergoing allogeneic stem cell transplantation from an HLA compatible donor.
Phase III Trial of a Non-myeloablative Preparative Regimen With Fludarabine and Busulfan With or Without Anti-lymphocyte Antibodies (Campath-1H or ATG) for Patients With Acute Myelogenous Leukemia or Myelodysplastic Syndrome Undergoing Allogeneic Stem Cell Transplantation From an HLA Compatible Donor
Study Start Date

To determine the efficacy of s.c. Campath-1H or ATG in decreasing the incidence and severity of acute and chronic GVHD in patients with AML and MDS treated with non-myeloablative stem cell transplantation.
Secondary Outcome Measures
Investigate the role of different conditioning regimens on:
Infection, engraftment relapse rate and disease free survival.

Patients must have an HLA compatible donor willing and capable of donating peripheral blood stem cells (first choice) or bone marrow progenitor cells using conventional techniques and blood lymphocytes if indicated (HLA compatible defined as 5/6 or 6/6 matched related or 10/10 molecular matched unrelated donor (A,B,C,DR,DRB1).
Donor contraindication (HIV seropositive confirmed by Western Blot, Hepatitis B antigenemia).
Evidence of bone marrow disease.
Unable to donate bone marrow or peripheral blood due to concurrent medical condition.
