Bone Marrow Transplant

I 131 Monoclonal Antibody BC8, Chemotherapy, TBI, and a Donor Bone Marrow Transplant for Advanced Acute Leukemia MDS (FHCRC-2186)
Hematopoietic Bone Marrow Transplantation for Patients with High-Risk Acute Myeloid Leukemia (AML), Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia (ALL), or Myelodysplastic Syndrome (MDS) using Related HLA-Mismatched Donors: A Trial Using Radiolabeled Anti-CD45 Antibody Combined with Immunosuppression Before and After Transplantation
Status Conditions Phase Study ID
Closed Leukemia
Myelodysplastic Syndromes
Phase I FHCRC-2186
The purpose of this study is to learn more about an experimental, two-part treatment for patients with advanced acute myeloid leukemia (AML), acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL), or high-risk myelodysplastic syndrome (MDS). This study will look at the effects, good or bad, that this combined treatment has on the body and leukemia or MDS. The study will also help us determine the highest dose of radiation we can give safely. The two parts of the treatment are:

• targeted radiolabeled antibody therapy, followed by

• bone marrow transplant from a related, mismatched donor

The type of bone marrow transplant in this study has been used before to treat leukemia, MDS and other similar diseases. It has been effective in getting the donor’s stem cells to “take hold” in the recipient, but many patients relapse (the disease returns) after transplant. We want to find out if using the radiolabeled antibody before the transplant will reduce the number of patients who relapse after transplant.

Participants will receive treatment as outpatients at the Seattle Cancer Care Alliance (SCCA) and as inpatients at the University of Washington Medical Center (UWMC). The radiation used in the study requires participants to stay in a “radiation isolation” room at UWMC for about 5 to 10 days.

Participants in this study will need to be in Seattle for about 4 months. This includes about 3 weeks from the start of study participation until the bone marrow transplant, and then about 3 months of follow-up after the transplant.
