Brief Summary:
Intravenous Busulfan (iv-Bu) is commonly used as part of preparation regimen for allogeneic hematopoietic stem cell transplantation for patients with acute leukemia. Though the pharmacokinetics data are available for population from America, Europe and Japan or Korea in Asia, there are no data in Chinese population. It is shown that high Bu concentration are associated with the toxicity such as veno-occlusion disease and lower concentration is correlated with reduced anti-leukemia effect, thus the monitoring of Bu and/or the strategy to achieve an optimal target Bu concentration are accepted to avoid toxicity while maintain the anti-leukemia effect which may overall improve the outcome of allo-SCT. Thus we conduct the pharmacokinetic study in Chinese population.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Acute Leukemia Drug: Busulfan Phase 2

Detailed Description:

All patients received intravenous Busulfan based conditioning regimen for allogeneic stem cell transplantation.

Intravenous Busulfan (iv-Bu) was given 1.6mg/kg twice daily for 4 days as in the conditioning regimen.

Blood samples were obtained after first and 7th dose of iv Bulsulfan.
