The study is a Phase III, randomized double blind, placebo controlled, and trial evaluating the addition of MMF vs. placebo to systemic corticosteroids as initial therapy for acute GVHD. The primary endpoint will be GVHD free survival at Day 56 post randomization.
Corticosteroids have been used as primary therapy for acute GVHD for many years. Historical published and unpublished data from Johns Hopkins, M. D. Anderson, University of Michigan and others defined an expected 35%-53% complete response (CR) at Day +28 of corticosteroid therapy for previously untreated patients with acute GVHD.
BMT CTN study 0302 (NCT00224874)was a randomized Phase II study evaluating etanercept, mycophenolate mofetil, denileukin diftitox or pentostatin in addition to corticosteroids. The results of that study suggested that mycophenolate mofetil produced the highest rates of CR at Day 28 and overall survival, supporting its evaluation in a Phase III study. Day 56 GVHD-free survival for the four treatment arms (all combining corticosteroids with one of the four study drugs) ranged from 39-71% across the four study arms.

Extracorporeal photopheresis (ECP) is a second-line therapy for steroid-refractory chronic graft-versus-host disease (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.
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...
