Tacrolimus and MMF as Post Grafting Immunosuppression After Conditioning With Flu TBI for HLA Matched Family Donor


Brief description of study

Primary Objective: A. To determine whether stable allogeneic hematopoietic engraftment can be safely established in patients receiving a non-myeloablative allogeneic SCT from a matched sibling donor, with fludarabine and low-dose TBI, with pre- and post-transplant immunosuppression with tacrolimus and MMF. B. To evaluate the incidence of grade II-IV GVHD associated with this treatment.

Detailed Study Description

Conditioning regimen: 1. Days - 4 to -2: Fludarabine 30 mg/m2/day IV. 2. Day 0: TBI 2.0 Gy at 6-7 cGy/min from a linear accelerator, followed by stem-cell infusion. TBI will preferably be administered between 7:00 a.m. and 1:00 p.m. to avoid proximity to tacrolimus/MMF administration. Immunosuppression: Day -3: Start tacrolimus at 0.06 mg/kg PO BID. Day 0: Start MMF at 15 mg/kg PO b.i.d. from day 0 (PM dose only).

Clinical Study Identifier: NCT00304720
