  Purpose
The goal of this clinical research study is to learn if cyclophosphamide given after busulfan and fludarabine can help to prevent graft versus host disease (GVHD - a condition in which transplanted tissue attacks the body into which it is transplanted) in patients receiving a stem cell transplant. The safety of this drug combination will also be studied.

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Cumulative Incidence of Grade II to IV Acute GVHD [ Time Frame: 100 days post transplant ]
    Graft Versus Host Disease (GVHD) defined as grade 2 to 4 GVHD within first 100 days post transplant. Death or disease progression before diagnosis of GVHD were considered competing risks in the estimation of the incidence of acute GVHD.

  • Cumulative Incidence of Grade III to IV Acute GVHD [ Time Frame: 100 days post transplant ]
    Graft Versus Host Disease (GVHD) defined as grade 3 to 4 GVHD within first 100 days post transplant. Death or disease progression before diagnosis of GVHD were considered competing risks in the estimation of the incidence of acute GVHD.

  • Day-100 Treatment-Related Mortality [ Time Frame: 100 days post transplant ]
    Treatment-Related Mortality (TRM) was estimated from the date of transplant using the cumulative incidence method to account for competing risks. Disease progression or relapse death were considered competing risk for TRM.


Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Rate of Engraftment [ Time Frame: From engraftment to 60 days post transplant ]
    Engraftment defined as the evidence of donor derived cells (more than 5%) by bone marrow chimerism studies in the presence of neutrophil recovery by day 28 post stem cell (SC) infusion. Engraftment date is the first day of three (3) consecutive days that the ANC exceeds 0.5 x109/L. Delayed engraftment is defined as the evidence of engraftment beyond day 28 post SC infusion achieved after the administration of therapeutic (high dose) hematopoietic growth factors.

  • 2-year Progression-Free Survival [ Time Frame: First 25-35 days post transplant and then every 3 months for a maximum of 2 years ]
    Progression-free survival (PFS) is defined as the interval between day of transplant and day of death or disease progression.

  • 2-year Overall Survival [ Time Frame: First 25-35 days post transplant and then every 3 months for a maximum of 2 years ]
    Overall Survival (OS) is defined as the interval between day of transplant and day of death.
