Myelodysplastic/Myeloproliferative Syndromes

Treosulfan + Fludarabine + TBI for Allo HCT for AML and MDS (FHCRC-2272)
Conditioning With Treosulfan, Fludarabine And Escalating Doses of TBI for Allogeneic Hematopoietic Cell Transplantation in Patients With Acute Myeloid Leukemia (AML) and Myelodysplastic Syndrome (MDS)
Status Conditions Phase Study ID
Closed Acute Myeloid Leukemia (AML)
Myelodysplastic Syndromes (MDS) Myeloproliferative Syndromes (MPD)
Phase II FHCRC-2272

The purpose of this study is to look at the effects, good or bad, of an experimental combination of low-dose total body irradiation (TBI) and chemotherapy drugs, given prior to stem-cell transplantation, in patients with high-risk acute myeloid leukemia (AML) or myelodysplastic syndrome (MDS).

The chemotherapy drugs used in this research study are treosulfan and fludarabine. These drugs will be given along with low-dose total body irradiation (TBI). Study participants will then undergo a donor bone-marrow or peripheral-blood stem-cell transplant.

Participants will receive treatment at the Seattle Cancer Care Alliance (SCCA) and at the University of Washington Medical Center (UWMC).

Treatment on this study will last about 3 ½ months. We would like to do long-term follow-up by calling each study participant on the telephone once a year to see how he or she is doing.
