Treatment of Chronic Graft Versus Host Disease With Arsenic Trioxide


Brief description of study

This study aims to evaluate the early chronic GvHD events (first line therapy), if the addition of arsenic trioxide to standard therapy with corticosteroids, with or without cyclosporine, will be effective in controlling chronic GvHD and to reduce the duration of corticosteroid therapy

Detailed Study Description

Graft-versus-host disease (GvHD) is the most common long-term complication in patients who underwent allogeneic transplantation.

First-line therapy for chronic GVHD is based on immunosuppressive agents (corticosteroids with or without cyclosporine) achieving satisfactory response in around 30% of patients.

This is a prospective, national, multicenter, non-randomized Phase II study that will include a total number of 24 patients in which, trioxide d'arsenic will be administrated at 0,15mg/kg/day.

Clinical response will be evaluated based on the Working Group Report 2015, published by the National Institute of Health Consensus.

Follow-up visits will be weekly for four weeks (ATO cycle), every two weeks from second to third month of ATO treatment, every month from the fourth to sixth month of ATO treatment and every 3 months, at 9 months and 12 months (final visit).
