Chemotherapy Plus Peripheral Stem Cell Transplantation in Treating Patients With Advanced Hematologic Cancer

2014-08-27 03:58:21 | BioPortfolio

Summary

RATIONALE: Drugs used in chemotherapy use different ways to stop cancer cells from dividing so they stop growing or die. Peripheral stem cell transplantation may be able to replace immune cells that were destroyed by chemotherapy used to kill cancer cells.

PURPOSE: Phase I trial to study the effectiveness of chemotherapy plus peripheral stem cell transplantation in treating patients who have advanced hematologic cancer.

Description

OBJECTIVES: I. Determine the feasibility of allogeneic engraftment after unrelated matched allogeneic peripheral blood stem cell transplantation preceded by a nonmyeloablative, fludarabine based conditioning regimen in patients with advanced hematologic malignancies. II. Determine the toxicities of this regimen, especially graft versus host disease, in these patients.

OUTLINE: Patients receive fludarabine IV over 30-60 minutes on days -7 to -4, cyclophosphamide IV over 30 minutes on days -7 to -5, and cytarabine IV over 2 hours on days -4 and -3. Allogeneic peripheral blood stem cells are infused on day 0. Filgrastim (G-CSF) is administered IV over 1 hour or subcutaneously beginning on day 1 and continuing until blood counts recover. Patients are followed weekly until day 60 and then monthly for 10 months.

PROJECTED ACCRUAL: A total of 6 patients will be accrued for this study.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Transplantation of stem cells collected from the peripheral blood. It is a less invasive alternative to direct marrow harvesting of hematopoietic stem cells. Enrichment of stem cells in peripheral blood can be achieved by inducing mobilization of stem cells from the BONE MARROW.

Hematopoietic stem cells found in peripheral blood circulation.

The release of stem cells from the bone marrow into the peripheral blood circulation for the purpose of leukapheresis, prior to stem cell transplantation. Hematopoietic growth factors or chemotherapeutic agents often are used to stimulate the mobilization.

Congener of CYTARABINE that is metabolized to cytarabine and thereby maintains a more constant antineoplastic action.

Transplantation of STEM CELLS collected from the fetal blood remaining in the UMBILICAL CORD and the PLACENTA after delivery. Included are the HEMATOPOIETIC STEM CELLS.
