PURPOSE: Phase II trial to study the effectiveness of visilizumab in treating patients who have graft-versus-host disease following donor peripheral stem cell transplantation that has not responded to previous treatment.
- Determine the survival rate at 180 days after treatment with visilizumab (Nuvion) as second-line therapy in patients with glucocorticoid-refractory acute graft-versus-host disease after prior allogeneic hematopoietic stem cell transplantation.
- Determine the safety of this drug in these patients.
- Determine the clinical response in patients treated with this drug.
OUTLINE: This is a multicenter study.
Patients receive visilizumab (Nuvion) IV for 1-2 doses.
PROJECTED ACCRUAL: A total of 80 patients will be accrued for this study.
Primary Purpose: Supportive Care

This study reports the incidence, anatomic location, and outcomes of graft-versus-host disease (GVHD) at a single active intestine transplant center.
Graft-versus-host disease (GVHD) is a severe adverse effect that results from bone marrow or peripheral blood cells transplantation and has a high rate of mortality. About 50% of the patients are acco...

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.
An antibody is a protein produced by the body's immune system when it detects harmful substances, called antigens. Examples of antigens include microorganisms (such as bacteria, fungi, parasites, and viruses) and chemicals. Antibodies may be produc...
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 ...
