Sponsor Dana-Farber Cancer Institute
Collaborator National Cancer Institute (NCI)
Start date February 2000

RATIONALE: Bone marrow transplantation may be able to replace immune cells that were destroyed by chemotherapy or radiation therapy used to kill tumor cells. Sometimes the transplanted cells can make an immune response against the body's normal tissues. Treatment of the donor bone marrow with the patient's white blood cells and a monoclonal antibody may prevent this from happening.

PURPOSE: Phase I trial to study the effectiveness of bone marrow transplantation with specially treated bone marrow in treating patients who have hematologic cancer that has not responded to previous therapy.

Eligibility Criteria

Male or female participants up to 40 years old.

DISEASE CHARACTERISTICS: Any of the following hematologic malignancies or bone marrow failure syndromes: Acute myelogenous leukemia after induction failure, in relapse, or in second or greater complete remission (CR) Acute lymphocytic leukemia after induction failure, in relapse, in second or greater CR, or in first CR with t(9;22), t(8;14), or t(4;11) Non-Hodgkin's lymphoma (intermediate or high grade) that has failed to achieve CR with at least 2 induction regimens, in relapse, or in second or greater CR Multiple myeloma with poor prognostic features (elevated beta-2 microglobulin or high labeling index) Hodgkin's disease in relapse or that failed to achieve CR after 2 chemotherapy regimens Congenital or acquired bone marrow failure that is poorly responsive to or intolerant of current therapy Myelodysplastic syndrome of all subtypes except refractory anemia No Fanconi's anemia Patients must have a haploidentical donor and meet the following criteria: Likely to have clinical deterioration and rapid disease progression during an unrelated donor search OR Already had an unproductive donor search OR Ineligible for or has refused autologous transplant Lack an HLA A, B, DR, and DQ matched related donor (evaluated via both genotype and phenotype) Lack an HLA A, B, and DR matched unrelated donor (evaluated via both genotype and phenotype) A new classification scheme for adult non-Hodgkin's lymphoma has been adopted by PDQ. The terminology of "indolent" or "aggressive" lymphoma will replace the former terminology of "low", "intermediate", or "high" grade lymphoma. However, this protocol uses the former terminology. PATIENT CHARACTERISTICS: Age: 40 and under Performance status: ECOG 0-2 OR Lansky 50-100% for patients under 16 years Life expectancy: At least 12 weeks Hematopoietic: Blood differential count with greater than 25% blasts at time of leukapheresis Hepatic: ALT and AST no greater than 5.0 times upper limit of normal (ULN) Bilirubin no greater than 2 times ULN unless due to Gilbert's syndrome or hemolytic anemia Renal: Creatinine less than 2 times ULN Cardiovascular: Adequate cardiac function for age Pulmonary: Adequate pulmonary function for age Other: Not pregnant or nursing Negative pregnancy test Fertile patients must use effective contraception for 1 month prior to study until at least 2 months after study No active uncontrolled infection HIV negative PRIOR CONCURRENT THERAPY: Biologic therapy: No prior bone marrow transplant No other concurrent monoclonal antibody therapies or ex vivo T-cell depletion therapies Chemotherapy: See Disease Characteristics Endocrine therapy: Not specified Radiotherapy: Not specified Surgery: Not specified

Additional Information

Official title A Phase I Open-Label, Safety Study of Haploidentical Bone Marrow Transplantation (BMT) After Ex Vivo Treatment of Bone Marrow With Anti-B7.1 and Anti-B7.2 Antibodies
Description OBJECTIVES: I. Determine if patients with refractory, high risk hematologic malignancies or bone marrow failure who receive HLA haploidentical bone marrow treated with anti-B7 antibody have normal engraftment. II. Determine if these patients are free of hyperacute graft versus host disease (GVHD), defined as grade D GVHD in the first 10 posttransplant days, when treated with this regimen. III. Determine if these patients have an acceptable incidence of life threatening grade D GHVD in the first 50 posttransplant days following this treatment regimen. IV. Determine the safety and tolerability of this treatment regimen in this patient population. OUTLINE: This is a multicenter study. Patients undergo leukapheresis to collect white blood cells which are incubated with donor bone marrow cells in the presence of anti-B7.1 and anti-B7.2 antibodies for 36 hours. Patients receive total body irradiation twice daily on days -6 to -3, cyclophosphamide IV daily on days -2 and -1, and methylprednisolone IV every 12 hours for a total of 4 doses on days -2 to 0. Patients are infused with the treated donor bone marrow on day 0. Patients then receive methotrexate IV on days 1, 3, 6, and 11 and leucovorin calcium IV 24 hours after each dose of methotrexate every 6 hours for 3-8 doses each time. Patients also receive cyclosporine IV or orally twice daily on days -2 to 100. Patients are followed every 2 months for 1 year. PROJECTED ACCRUAL: A total of 20 patients will be accrued for this study.
