Thymoglobulin and Total Lymphoid Irradiation for Hematologic Malignancies
1. To determine whether the primary endpoint: the composite success rate, defined as the proportion of patients who are alive at day 100; and are without grade 3-4 Graft versus Host Disease (GVHD); and are without grade 4 toxicity (unrelated to infection); and have engrafted, is likely to be at least 40%.
- To determine the cumulative incidence of chronic graft versus host disease.
- To determine the overall and disease free survival.

- Composite Success Rate [ Time Frame: Baseline to Day 100, assessment at Day 100 ]Defined as the proportions of the patients who are alive at day 100, are without Grade 3-4 Graft Graft-versus-host disease (GVHD), without Grade 4 toxicity (unrelated to infection) and have engrafted. Toxicity grades according to Common Toxicity Criteria (CTC) Common Terminology Criteria for Adverse Events (CTCAE), version 3.0.
