RATIONALE: Bone marrow transplantation may be able to replace immune cells that were destroyed by chemotherapy used to kill tumor cells. Sometimes the transplanted cells can make an immune response against normal tissues. Methotrexate and cyclosporine may prevent this from happening.
PURPOSE: Phase III trial to study the effectiveness of treatment with methotrexate and cyclosporine after bone marrow transplantation to provide protection against acute graft-versus-host disease.
OBJECTIVES: I. Determine the efficacy of a combination of methotrexate and cyclosporine, administered after grafting, to prevent the development of acute graft versus host disease (GVHD) in patients undergoing allogeneic bone marrow transplantation.
OUTLINE: Patients receive methotrexate IV on days 1,3,6, and 11. Patients also receive cyclosporine IV twice a day until the patient is eating, then it is administered orally twice a day. Cyclosporine begins on day -1 and continues until day 180. The dose is reduced beginning on day 50.
PROJECTED ACCRUAL: Accrual will continue until further notice.
Primary Purpose: Supportive Care

Human Herpesvirus-6B (HHV-6B) Reactivation is a Risk Factor for Grade 2-4 Acute Graft-Versus-Host Disease (aGVHD) after Hematopoietic Stem Cell Transplantation (HCT): a Systematic Review and Meta-Analysis.
Graft-versus-host disease (GVHD) is an important cause of morbidity and mortality following allogeneic hematopoietic cell transplantation (HCT). Many studies have suggested that HHV-6B plays a role in...
Although day 100 survival among allogeneic hematopoietic cell transplantation (HCT) recipients has improved over time, longer-term survival remains a challenge. The aim of this study was to identify p...
Poor graft function (PGF) is a severe complication of allogeneic haematopoietic stem cell transplantation (allo-HSCT). Murine studies have demonstrated that effective haematopoiesis depends on the spe...
Techniques for the removal of subpopulations of cells (usually residual tumor cells) from the bone marrow ex vivo before it is infused. The purging is achieved by a variety of agents including pharmacologic agents, biophysical agents (laser photoirradiation or radioisotopes) and immunologic agents. Bone marrow purging is used in both autologous and allogeneic BONE MARROW TRANSPLANTATION.
Agents that destroy bone marrow activity. They are used to prepare patients for BONE MARROW TRANSPLANTATION or STEM CELL TRANSPLANTATION.
The transference of BONE MARROW from one human or animal to another for a variety of purposes including HEMATOPOIETIC STEM CELL TRANSPLANTATION or MESENCHYMAL STEM CELL TRANSPLANTATION.
Transfer of HEMATOPOIETIC STEM CELLS from BONE MARROW or BLOOD between individuals within the same species (TRANSPLANTATION, HOMOLOGOUS) or transfer within the same individual (TRANSPLANTATION, AUTOLOGOUS). Hematopoietic stem cell transplantation has been used as an alternative to BONE MARROW TRANSPLANTATION in the treatment of a variety of neoplasms.
Immunological rejection of leukemia cells following bone marrow transplantation.
Osteoporosis is a disease in which the bones become extremely porous, are subject to fracture, and heal slowly, occurring especially in women following menopause and often leading to curvature of the spine from vertebral collapse. Follow and track&n...
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 ...
In a clinical trial or interventional study, participants receive specific interventions according to the research plan or protocol created by the investigators. These interventions may be medical products, such as drugs or devices; procedures; or change...
