This trial is active, not recruiting.
|Conditions||stem cell leukemia of unclear lineage, graft versus host disease|
|Sponsor||University of Kansas|
|Start date||June 2010|
|End date||September 2015|
|Trial size||21 participants|
|Trial identifier||NCT01174940, 12047|
To study the effect of ECP with Uvadex® in conjunction with a standard myeloablative conditioning regimen on the incidence of acute and chronic GvHD in patients undergoing an allogeneic related or unrelated BMT or PBSC transplant, for treatment of hematologic or lymphoproliferative malignancies.
|Intervention model||single group assignment|
Presence/absence of grade II-IV acute Graft versus Host Disease (aGVHD)
time frame: 100 days after transplant
proportion of patients who develop chronic Graft versus Host Disease (cGVHD) and experience relapse of primary disease.
time frame: 365 days after transplantation
Male or female participants at least 18 years old.
Inclusion Criteria: - Patients are eligible if they have a diagnosis of one of the following hematologic or lymphoproliferative malignancies for which a treatment option would be an allogeneic BMT or PBSC transplant: - acute myelogenous leukemia - chronic myelogenous leukemia - acute lymphocytic/blastic leukemia - chronic lymphocytic leukemia - myelodysplastic syndrome - non-Hodgkin's lymphoma (expected survival > 60 days) - Hodgkin's disease (expected survival > 60 days) - Patients who are candidates for a standard allogeneic BMT or patients who are candidates for a standard allogeneic PBSC transplant. - Patients must have a suitable HLA- molecular matched (8/10 or more) related or unrelated donor. - Patients must be physically and psychologically capable of undergoing a BMT or PBSC transplant and the attendant period of strict isolation. - Patients must test negative for human immunodeficiency virus (HIV). - Patients must present no evidence of active ongoing infection. - Patients must have adequate renal, hepatic, pulmonary, and cardiac function to enable the patient to tolerate the extracorporeal volume shifts associated with ECP, as determined by the physician's clinical judgment. - Platelets ≥ 20,000/cmm. - Patients ≥ 18 years of age. - Weight ≥ 40 kg (88 lb). - Systolic Blood Pressure ≥ 90 mm Hg after the patient has been in a sitting position for five minutes. - Women of childbearing potential must agree to use a reliable method of birth control for the duration of the study. - Patients must be willing to comply with all study procedures. - Signed and dated informed consent must be obtained prior to conducting any study procedures. The parent or legal guardian of a minor must also provide written informed consent. Exclusion Criteria - Patients who have received a prior allogeneic BMT or PBSC transplant. - Hypersensitivity or allergy to psoralen (methoxsalen). - Contraindication to radiation, cyclophosphamide, CSA, Busulphan or MTX. - Hypersensitivity or allergy to both heparin and citrate products. (If hypersensitive or allergic to only one of these two products, exclusion does not apply if the other product is strictly used for the patient.) - Patients whose treatment requires donor lymphocyte infusion up to day 100 post-transplant. - Participation in another clinical trial for prevention of GvHD within 7 days prior to patient enrollment or concurrent participation in any other clinical study. - Active gastrointestinal bleeding. - Females who are pregnant or lactating. - Previous treatment with ECP.
|Official title||A Study of Extracorporeal Photopheresis With UVADEX® in the Setting of a Standard Myeloablative Conditioning Regimen in Related or Unrelated Donor Hematopoietic Stem Cell Transplantation for the Prevention of Graft Versus Host Disease|
|Principal investigator||Sunil Abhyankar, MD|
|Description||This study is to test the concept that using ECP treatment prior to and after an allogeneic bone marrow transplant (BMT) or peripheral blood stem cell (PBSC) transplant will prevent the development of GvHD. This study is not designed to detect a specific treatment effect. However, some statements about the outcome of the study are possible. A sample size of n = 21 patients could detect a statistically significant difference between the expected rate of GvHD in an untreated population, 60%, and our hypothesized rate, 30%, for the matched-unrelated recipients. This calculation is based on a one-sample, two-sided chi-square test at the 5% level of significance with 80% power. Patients will receive ECP from day -10 and day -8 before transplant and then from day of engraftment absolute neutrophil count (ANC>500) until day 90 after transplant. Patients who enter the study will receive a BMT or PBSC transplant from a donor who is matched unrelated (8/10 to 10/10 match). Rates of acute GvHD and chronic GvHD that occur in patients are 50-70% for the matched-unrelated donor transplant. The choice of sample size is 21 patients. The analysis will determine if there are favorable trends for a treatment effect. Comparison on survival, and rates of acute and chronic GvHD will be made with historical controls who have undergone similar myeloablative transplant from an unrelated donor.|
