The purpose of this study is to see if bortezomib (Velcade) is effective in the treatment of refractory cGVHD.
Graft vs. host disease represents the most formidable problem following allogeneic hematopoietic stemm cell transplantation for hematological diseases. Chronic graft-versus-host disease (cGVHD) is the most serious and common long-term complication of this treatment in patients surviving more than 100 days. Some patients are requiring immunosuppressive therapy for years. cGVHD is associated with a high degree of morbidity and mortality and remains a major cause of late death. When standard treatment with steroids is ineffective or poorly tolerated, effective therapeutic options are limited. Patients with uncontroled cGVHD with initial therapy including systemic steroids respond poorly to second line options .
Some patients treated with bortezomib to control multiple myeloma after bone marrow transplantation have shown improvement in 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.
