Summary

Relapse remains a principle cause of treatment failure for patients with aggressive lymphoma after autologous transplantation. Non-myeloablative allogeneic transplantation allows patients to receive an infusion of donor cells in an attempt to induce a graft versus lymphoma effect. This study will assess the feasibility, safety and efficacy of the combination of autologous stem cell transplantation followed by non-myeloablative transplantation for patients with poor-risk aggressive lymphoma.

peripheral blood stem cell transplant
Donor PBSC will be infused intravenously beginning on Day 0. The minimum total CD34+ cell dose will be 2 x 10^6 CD34+cells/kg of recipient's actual body weight with a maximum dose of 8 x 10^6/kg of recipient's actual body weight
tacrolimus FK506
Tacrolimus (FK506) will be given orally at a dose of 0.05 mg/kg PO BID starting day -3.
sirolimus Rapamycin
Sirolimus (rapamycin) will be given orally at a dose of 12 mg times one on day -3 and then the dose shall be 4 mg by mouth daily starting on day -2. The dose may then be adjusted according to serum levels at the discretion of the treating physician
methotrexate
Methotrexate will be administered once daily on days 1, 3, and 6 as an IV bolus over 15 minutes at a dose of 5 mg/m2

Additional Information

Official title Sequential Myeloablative Autologous Stem Cell Transplantation Followed by Allogeneic Non-Myeloablative Stem Cell Transplantation for Patients With Poor Risk Lymphomas
Principal investigator Yi-Bin A Chen, MD
Description This is a phase II clinical trial investigating the feasibility, and efficacy of sequential autologous stem cell transplant followed by non-myeloablative allogeneic transplant for patients with poor risk lymphoma. Patients will be enrolled onto the trial when eligible and undergo standard high-dose chemotherapy with the combination with busulfan, cyclophosphamide, and etoposide followed by autologous stem cell transplant. After recovery of counts and clinical status, patients will then proceed to non-myeloablative allogeneic stem cell transplant using a fully matched related or unrelated donor.
