Summary of "Influence of donor type (sibling vs matched-unrelated donor vs haplo-identical donor) on outcomes after clofarabine-based reduced-intensity conditioning allograft for myeloid malignancies."

Clofarabine-based reduced-intensity conditioning (RIC) regimens are well-established schedules for allograft in patients with myeloid malignancies. A retrospective study was conducted including all adults allografted in our department with such a regimen and disease with the aim to assess whether or not the donor type (matched sibling (MSD), unrelated (MUD), or haploidentical (haplo)) impacted outcomes. Between October 2009 and February 2018, 118 patients met the inclusion criteria. Thirty-six, 55 and 27 patients respectively received a graft from a MSD, MUD or haplo donor. Peripheral blood stem cells (PBSC) were the source of graft for all patients. The median age of the whole cohort was 62 years old (range: 20-73) and the median follow-up was 31 months (range: 4.5-106). All patients engrafted except 1 haplo recipient. Neutrophils (>0.5 10/L) and platelets (50 10/L) recoveries were significantly delayed in the haplo-group (p=0.0003; and p<0.0001) compared to MSD and MUD. Acute grade 2-4 or 3-4 graft versus host disease (GVHD) incidences were similar between the three groups as well as the incidence of moderate or severe chronic GVHD. Also, similar 2-year overall survival (OS, 64.7% vs 73.9% vs 60.2%, p=0.39), disease-free survival (DFS, 57.7% vs 70.9% vs and 53.6%, p=0.1) and GVHD-relapse free survival (37.9% vs 54.3% vs 38.9%, p=0.23) were observed between MSD vs MUD vs haplo groups. The same was true when considering only acute myeloid leukemia (AML) cases. In multivariate analysis, the type of donor remained independent of outcomes in this series while myelodysplastic syndrome (vs AML), high disease-risk index and older donor (>=50 years) were associated with lower OS and DFS. These data suggest that haplo-identical donors are an acceptable alternative for patients receiving a clofarabine-based RIC PBSC allograft for myeloid malignancies who lack a MSD or a MUD.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

A mismatch between donor and recipient blood. Antibodies present in the recipient's serum are directed against antigens in the donor product. Such a mismatch may result in a transfusion reaction in which, for example, donor blood is hemolyzed. (From Saunders Dictionary & Encyclopedia of Laboratory Medicine and Technology, 1984)

The transfer of lymphocytes from a donor to a recipient or reinfusion to the donor.

The transfer of erythrocytes from a donor to a recipient or reinfusion to the donor.

The transfer of leukocytes from a donor to a recipient or reinfusion to the donor.

The transfer of blood platelets from a donor to a recipient or reinfusion to the donor.
