A Study Comparing Non Myeloablative (Flu-TBI) and Reduced Intensity (FLU-BU-ATG) Conditioning in Allogenic Transplantation
This study is a prospective comparison between 2 popular regimens based on reduced intensity or non-myeloablative approaches to define the optimal myeloablative and/or immu-nonsuppressive association for reduced intensity conditionings (RIC).
Flu-Bu-ATG (Study A) associated Fludarabine (30mg/m²/5 days), Oral Busulfan (8 mg/kg over 2 days) and Thymoglobuline (2.5 mg/m²/1day).
Flu-TBI (Study B) consisted of Fludarabine (25mg/m²/ 3 days) and 2 Gy total body irradiation (TBI).
A randomization of 2 phase study according to the methodology developed by Liu et al (Liu, 1993 and 2001) for the evaluation of multiple innovative approaches.
Primary endpoint is one year overall survival (OS). Stopping rules included excessive engraftment failure and trans-plant related mortality ratio. Data are yearly reviewed by an independent safety review board (ISRB).
Inclusion criteria are patients presenting a hematological malignancy, eligible for non myeloablative allo stem cell transplantation (SCT), aged between 18 and 65, with a suitable HLA identical sibling. All patients and donors are included after giving written informed consent.
Protocol was submitted and accepted by the ethical committee and the AFFSSAPS cellular therapies committee (national agency).

Nephelometry And Turbidimetry
Chemical analysis based on the phenomenon whereby light, passing through a medium with dispersed particles of a different refractive index from that of the medium, is attenuated in intensity by scattering. In turbidimetry, the intensity of light transmitted through the medium, the unscattered light, is measured. In nephelometry, the intensity of the scattered light is measured, usually, but not necessarily, at right angles to the incident light beam.
The adjustment of the eye to variations in the intensity of light. Light adaptation is the adjustment of the eye when the light threshold is increased; DARK ADAPTATION when the light is greatly reduced. (From Cline et al., Dictionary of Visual Science, 4th ed)
CONFORMAL RADIOTHERAPY that combines several intensity-modulated beams to provide improved dose homogeneity and highly conformal dose distributions.
A pteridine derivative present in body fluids; elevated levels result from immune system activation, malignant disease, allograft rejection, and viral infections. (From Stedman, 26th ed) Neopterin also serves as a precursor in the biosynthesis of biopterin.
A centrally acting antihypertensive agent. The drug lowers both systolic and diastolic blood pressure by activating the central nervous system alpha-2 adrenoreceptors, which results in reduced sympathetic outflow leading to reduced vascular tone. Its adverse reactions include dry mouth, sedation, and constipation.
The purpose of this study is to determine if a reduced intensity (RI) (non-myeloablative) chemoimmunotherapy followed by Allogeneic Stem Cell Transplantation AlloSCT (matched family donors...
This is a study to explore the use of a reduced intensity transplant conditioning regimen. A conditioning regimen is the treatment that is given to prepare a body for the new bone marrow t...
Unrelated matched donor (cord blood, bone marrow or peripheral blood) allogeneic stem cell transplantation (UDAlloSCT) with either myeloablative or reduced intensity conditioning will be w...
The purpose of this study is to determine whether a reduced intensity conditioning regimen for stem cell transplant with donor cells will allow the donor cells to be effective without caus...
The purpose of this study is to evaluate the feasibility and efficacy of reduced-intensity allogeneic stem cell transplantation (RIST) with RIC regimen in children with neuroblastoma who h...
The relative contributions of B lymphocytes and plasma cells during allograft rejection remain unclear. Therefore, the effects of B cell depletion on acute cardiac rejection, chronic renal rejection,...
Due to the highly variable nature of predation risk, prey animals need to continuously collect information regarding the risk posed by predators. One question that ensues is how long to use this infor...
Allograft thrombosis is a devastating early complication of renal transplantation that ultimately leads to allograft loss. We report here on our experience of nine cases of immediate re-transplantatio...
Introduction: Polyoma BK virus (BKV) has recently been identified to cause renal allograft dysfunction, which manifests as polyomavirus-associated nephropathy (PVAN). However, the presence and level o...
Thirty myelofibrosis patients (21 males, nine females) with relapse (n = 27) or graft-rejection (n = 3) after dose-reduced allografting underwent a salvage strategy including donor lymphocyte infu...
