High-dose chemotherapy and autologous stem cell transplantation (ASCT) is the current standard of care for relapsed non-Hodgkin lymphoma (NHL) and Hodgkin lymphoma (HL). Conditioning regimens with high-dose carmustine have been associated with idiopathic pneumonitis syndrome. We, therefore, created a modified alternative TECAM conditioning regimen, consisting of etoposide, thiotepa, cytarabine, cyclophosphamide, and melphalan.

Name: Clinical lymphoma, myeloma & leukemia
The aim of our study was to evaluate the efficacy and toxicity of TECAM (thiotepa, etoposide, cyclophosphamide, cytarabine, and melphalan) and BEAM (carmustine, etoposide, cytarabine, and melphalan) c...
High-dose therapy with BEAC conditioning compared to BEAM conditioning prior to autologous stem cell transplantation for non-Hodgkin lymphoma: no differences in toxicity or outcome. A matched-control study of the EBMT-Lymphoma Working Party.
A recent shortage of melphalan has prompted the use of alternatives to BEAM (BCNU, Etoposide, Cytarabine, Melphalan) conditioning for autologous stem cell transplantion (ASCT). The BEAC (BCNU, Etoposi...
The optimal intensity of myeloablation with a reduced-toxicity conditioning regimen to decrease relapse rate after allogeneic stem-cell transplantation without increasing transplant-related mortality ...
Thiotepa Based Intensified Reduced-Intensity Conditioning Adult Double-Unit Cord Blood Hematopoietic Stem Cell Transplantation Results in Decreased Relapse Rate and Improved Survival Compared to Transplantation Following Standard Reduced-Intensity Conditioning: a Retrospective Cohort Comparison.
The "Minnesota" reduced intensity conditioning (RIC) cord-blood transplantation (CBT) regimen (standard-RIC) of fludarabine (Flu, 200mg/m), cyclophosphamide (Cy, 50mg/kg), and 200cGy or 300cGy total b...
Carmustine (BCNU)-Etoposide-Citarabine-Melphalan (BEAM) chemotherapy is the standard conditioning regimen for autologous stem cell transplantation (ASCT) in lymphomas. Owing to BCNU shortages, many ce...
Study is designed to explore whether the introduction of Thiotepa, to the pre autologous stem-cell transplantation (ASCT) conditioning will reduce toxicity and thus improve outcome followi...
In the United States, thiotepa has been utilized in reduced intensity conditioning regimens for alternative donor courses (double umbilical cord blood transplant (dUCBT) and haplo-identica...
The purpose of this study is to evaluate the efficacy and toxicity of busulfan, etoposide, cytarabine and melphalan (BuEAM) including iv busulfan instead of BCNU of standard BEAM as a cond...
Lymphoma is a malignant blood disease sensitive to chemotherapy. In case of relapse after first-line treatment, high-dose chemotherapy conditioning followed by autologous hematopoietic ste...
The purpose of this study is to evaluate the safety and efficacy of Melphalan and BUCY+VP-16 myeloablative conditioning regimens in multiple myeloma undergoing autologous hematopoietic ste...
A semisynthetic derivative of PODOPHYLLOTOXIN that exhibits antitumor activity. Etoposide inhibits DNA synthesis by forming a complex with topoisomerase II and DNA. This complex induces breaks in double stranded DNA and prevents repair by topoisomerase II binding. Accumulated breaks in DNA prevent entry into the mitotic phase of cell division, and lead to cell death. Etoposide acts primarily in the G2 and S phases of the cell cycle.
A very toxic alkylating antineoplastic agent also used as an insect sterilant. It causes skin, gastrointestinal, CNS, and bone marrow damage. According to the Fourth Annual Report on Carcinogens (NTP 85-002, 1985), thiotepa may reasonably be anticipated to be a carcinogen (Merck Index, 11th ed).
Congener of CYTARABINE that is metabolized to cytarabine and thereby maintains a more constant antineoplastic action.
An alkylating nitrogen mustard that is used as an antineoplastic in the form of the levo isomer - MELPHALAN, the racemic mixture - MERPHALAN, and the dextro isomer - MEDPHALAN; toxic to bone marrow, but little vesicant action; potential carcinogen.
Preparative treatment of transplant recipient with various conditioning regimens including radiation, immune sera, chemotherapy, and/or immunosuppressive agents, prior to transplantation. Transplantation conditioning is very common before bone marrow transplantation.

Organ transplantation is the moving of an organ from one body to another or from a donor site to another location on the patient's own body, for the purpose of replacing the recipient's damaged or absent organ. The emerging field of regenerative ...
