Cord Blood Transplant With OTS for the Treatment of HIV Positive Hematologic Cancers

2019-09-13 02:15:37 | BioPortfolio


This phase II trial studies the side effects of a cord blood transplant using OTS and to see how well it works in treating patients with human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) positive hematologic (blood) cancers. After a cord blood transplant, the immune cells, including white blood cells, can take a while to recover, putting the patient at increased risk of infection. OTS consists of blood stem cells that help to produce mature blood cells, including immune cells. Drugs used in chemotherapy, such as fludarabine, cyclophosphamide, and thiotepa, work in different ways to stop the growth of tumor cells, either by killing the cells, by stopping them from dividing, or by stopping them from spreading. Total body irradiation is a type of whole-body radiation. Giving chemotherapy and total-body irradiation before a cord blood transplant with OTS may help to kill any cancer cells that are in the body and make room in the patient's bone marrow for new stem cells to grow and reduce the risk of infection.


OUTLINE: Patients are assigned to 1 of 2 regimens.

REGIMEN A: Patients receive fludarabine intravenously (IV) over 30 minutes on days -8 to -6, cyclophosphamide IV on days -7 to -6, and undergo total body irradiation (TBI) twice daily (BID) on days -4 to -1. Patients then undergo umbilical cord blood transplant on day 0. Between 4-24 hours after transplant completion, patients receive umbilical cord blood-derived hematopoietic CD34-positive progenitor cells IV over 5-10 minutes in the absence of disease progression or unacceptable toxicity.

REGIMEN B: Patients receive fludarabine IV over 30-60 minutes on days -6 to -2, cyclophosphamide IV on day -6, thiotepa IV over 4 hours on days -5 to -4, and undergo TBI once daily (QD) on days -2 to -1. Patients then undergo umbilical cord blood transplant on day 0. Between 4-24 hours after transplant completion, patients receive umbilical cord blood-derived hematopoietic CD34-positive progenitor cells IV over 5-10 minutes in the absence of disease progression or unacceptable toxicity.

After completion of study treatment, patients are followed up at 28, 80, and 180 days, and then at 1 and 2 years.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Irradiation of one half or both halves of the body in the treatment of disseminated cancer or widespread metastases. It is used to treat diffuse metastases in one session as opposed to multiple fields over an extended period. The more frequent treatment modalities are upper hemibody irradiation (UHBI) or lower hemibody irradiation (LHBI). Less common is mid-body irradiation (MBI). In the treatment of both halves of the body sequentially, hemibody irradiation permits radiotherapy of the whole body with larger doses of radiation than could be accomplished with WHOLE-BODY IRRADIATION. It is sometimes called "systemic" hemibody irradiation with reference to its use in widespread cancer or metastases. (P. Rubin et al. Cancer, Vol 55, p2210, 1985)

Irradiation of the whole body with ionizing or non-ionizing radiation. It is applicable to humans or animals but not to microorganisms.

A very toxic alkylating antineoplastic agent also used as an insect sterilant. It causes skin, gastrointestinal, CNS, and bone marrow damage. According to the Fourth Annual Report on Carcinogens (NTP 85-002, 1985), thiotepa may reasonably be anticipated to be a carcinogen (Merck Index, 11th ed).

Precursor of an alkylating nitrogen mustard antineoplastic and immunosuppressive agent that must be activated in the LIVER to form the active aldophosphamide. It has been used in the treatment of LYMPHOMA and LEUKEMIA. Its side effect, ALOPECIA, has been used for defleecing sheep. Cyclophosphamide may also cause sterility, birth defects, mutations, and cancer.

The total amount of a chemical, metal or radioactive substance present at any time after absorption in the body of man or animal.
