Assessment of Allogeneic Hematopoietic Cell Transplantation in Patients With Myelofibrosis

2016-10-18 02:08:21 | BioPortfolio


This observational study will compare outcomes of a prospectively-enrolled cohort of Hematopoietic Stem Cell Transplant (HCT) recipients with outcomes of a cohort of age-matched historical non-HCT controls. Patients undergoing alloHCT will receive HCT in a US transplant center and be reported to the Center for International Blood and Marrow Transplant Research (CIBMTR) using well-established CIBMTR report forms and data collection procedures as well as a study-specific supplemental form. Data on the historical non-HCT controls will be collected at 14 US academic centers. These centers will provide data on all consecutive patients with PMF, post-ET MF, or post-PV MF referred to their institutions between 2000 and 2012.


Patients with primary MF (PMF), post-essential thrombocythemia (ET) MF, or post-polycythemia vera (PV) MF, with intermediate-2 or high-risk disease as determined by the DIPSS, and aged ≥55 at the time of DIPSS assessment are eligible for this study. For the allogeneic HCT arm of the HLA-Matched Donor HCT Study, donors must be either 6/6 HLA-matched related donors, defined by Class I (HLA-A and -B) intermediate resolution or high resolution DNA-based typing and Class II (HLA-DRBI) at high resolution DNA-based typing (but not monozygotic twins), OR an 8/8 HLA-A, -B, -C, and -DRB1 at high resolution DNA-based typing matched unrelated donors; both peripheral blood stem cells and bone marrow grafts are allowed, and all conditioning regimen intensities and graph versus host disease (GVHD) prophylaxis regimens are allowed. For the Haploidentical Donor Study, donors must be haploidentical.

This study will target accrual of 650 patients receiving alloHCT, including approximately 225 receiving myeloablative conditioning. Participating centers are expected to provide data for approximately 2,400 patients to form the non-HCT historical control cohort.

Allogeneic Stem Cell Transplantation for Myelofibrosis

The goal of this clinical research study is to learn if using a combination of fludarabine, busulfan, and antithymocyte globulin (ATG) can help to control myelofibrosis in patients receivi...

Cyclophosphamide and Busulfan Followed By Donor Stem Cell Transplant in Treating Patients With Myelofibrosis

RATIONALE: Giving chemotherapy, such as cyclophosphamide and busulfan, before a donor stem cell transplant helps stop the growth of abnormal cells. It also helps stop the patient's immune ...

Effect of Azithromycin on Airflow Decline-Free Survival After Allogeneic Hematopoietic Stem Cell Transplant: The ALLOZITHRO Randomized Clinical Trial.

Bronchiolitis obliterans syndrome has been associated with increased morbidity and mortality after allogeneic hematopoietic stem cell transplant (HSCT). Previous studies have suggested that azithromyc...

The Impact of Splenectomy in Myelofibrosis Patients Prior to Allogeneic Hematopoietic Stem Cell Transplantation.

Performing a pre-transplant splenectomy in patients with myelofibrosis (MF) is a matter of debate, as while the procedure improves hematological recovery it may lead to severe morbidities. We retrospe...

Incidence and Outcome of Pericardial Effusion in Pediatric Patients After Hematopoietic Stem Cell Transplant: A Single-institution Experience.

Pericardial effusion (PE) is a known complication after hematopoietic stem cell transplant (HSCT). Limited data is currently available regarding the incidence and outcomes of PE in pediatric HSCT.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

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.

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.

A hematopoietic growth factor and the ligand of the cell surface c-kit protein (PROTO-ONCOGENE PROTEINS C-KIT). It is expressed during embryogenesis and is a growth factor for a number of cell types including the MAST CELLS and the MELANOCYTES in addition to the HEMATOPOIETIC STEM CELLS.

Clonal hematopoietic stem cell disorders characterized by dysplasia in one or more hematopoietic cell lineages. They predominantly affect patients over 60, are considered preleukemic conditions, and have high probability of transformation into ACUTE MYELOID LEUKEMIA.

Bipotential angio-hematopoietic stem cells that give rise to both HEMATOPOIETIC STEM CELLS and ENDOTHELIAL CELLS.
