The purpose of this study is to evaluate the OS, RFS, and TRM after HCT with low-dose total body irradiation, fludarabine, and busulfan conditioning.

Clinical Details

Official title: Prospective Phase II Clinical Trial of Myeloablative Conditioning Regimen With Fludarabine and Busulfan Plus 400 cGy Total Body Irradiation for Hematologic Malignancies

Study design: Allocation: Non-Randomized, Endpoint Classification: Safety/Efficacy Study, Intervention Model: Single Group Assignment, Masking: Open Label, Primary Purpose: Treatment

Primary outcome: progression free survival

Secondary outcome: relapse of primary disease, overall survival, and occurrence of acute/chronic GVHD

Detailed description: Conventional allogeneic hematopoietic cell transplantation (HCT) for patients with hematological malignancies involves conditioning with high doses of systemic chemo/radiation therapy such as cyclophosphamide (CY) plus 1200 or 1000 cGy total body irradiation (TBI; CY/TBI) or busulfan (Bu) / CY (BuCy). Unfortunately, such regimens have been associated with significant toxicities, limiting their use to otherwise healthy, relatively young patients. Recently, Fludarabine plus 4 day dose of busulfan (FluBu4) containing myeloablative regimen has been introduced successfully without increasing transplant-related mortality (TRM). To improve transplant outcomes without increasing the risk of recurrence, Russell et al introduced 400cGy of TBI with antithymocyte (ATG, 4. 5mg/Kg) into FluBu4 regimen with successful outcomes.
