RATIONALE: Beclomethasone may be effective in treating patients who have graft-versus-host disease of the gastrointestinal tract.
PURPOSE: Compassionate use of beclomethasone in treating patients who have graft-versus-host disease of the gastrointestinal tract that has not responded to previous therapy.
- Provide beclomethasone dipropionate to patients with gastrointestinal graft-versus-host disease refractory to standard therapy or with a contraindication to systemic steroids.
- Minimize the serious side effects associated with systemic steroid use in these patients.
OUTLINE: Patients receive oral beclomethasone dipropionate 4 times daily for 28 days in the absence of graft-versus-host disease progression or unacceptable toxicity. Patients may then receive a second course for 31 days if symptoms of graft-versus-host disease persist. Patients may receive up to 4 treatments (1 or 2 courses each) per year.
PROJECTED ACCRUAL: A total of 24-45 patients will be accrued for this study within 3 years.

Extracorporeal photopheresis (ECP) is a second-line therapy for steroid-refractory chronic graft-versus-host disease (cGVHD).
An immunological attack mounted by a graft against the host because of tissue incompatibility when immunologically competent cells are transplanted to an immunologically incompetent host; the resulting clinical picture is that of GRAFT VS HOST DISEASE.
The clinical entity characterized by anorexia, diarrhea, loss of hair, leukopenia, thrombocytopenia, growth retardation, and eventual death brought about by the GRAFT VS HOST REACTION.
The immune responses of a host to a graft. A specific response is GRAFT REJECTION.
The survival of a graft in a host, the factors responsible for the survival and the changes occurring within the graft during growth in the host.
Manipulation of the host's immune system in treatment of disease. It includes both active and passive immunization as well as immunosuppressive therapy to prevent graft rejection.
