Bone Marrow Transplant
• 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.
