Tac Mini-MTX MMF Versus Tac MTX for GVHD Prevention


Brief description of study

This randomized clinical trial studies standard GVHD prophylaxis with tacrolimus and methotrexate compared to tacrolimus, mycophenolate mofetil and a reduced-dose methotrexate in patients with hematologic malignancies undergoing allogeneic hematopoietic cell transplant. Both mycophenolate mofetil and reduced-dose methotrexate, in combination with a calcineurin inhibitor, have been shown to be safe and effective in GVHD prevention with less toxicity than standard dose methotrexate. It is not yet known, however, whether this combination of mycophenolate mofetil and reduced-dose methotrexate with tacrolimus is more effective than tacrolimus and standard dose methotrexate in preventing GVHD.
