Lymphocyte Infusion in Treating Patients With Relapsed Cancer After Bone Marrow or Peripheral Stem Cell Transplantation
RATIONALE: White blood cells from donors may be able to kill cancer cells in patients with cancer that has recurred following bone marrow or peripheral stem cell transplantation.
PURPOSE: Phase II trial to study the effectiveness of donated white blood cells in treating patients who have relapsed cancer following transplantation of donated bone marrow or peripheral stem cells.
Chronic Myeloproliferative Disorders
Gestational Trophoblastic Tumor
Multiple Myeloma and Plasma Cell Neoplasm
Testicular Germ Cell Tumor
Biological: peripheral blood lymphocyte therapy
|Study Design:||Primary Purpose: Treatment|
|Official Title:||Donor Lymphocyte Infusion (DLI) as Adoptive Immunotherapy for Relapse Malignancies After Allogeneic Hematopoietic Transplantation|
|Study Start Date:||August 1998|
|Study Completion Date:||February 2003|
OBJECTIVES: I. Offer donor lymphocyte infusion as adoptive immunotherapy in patients with relapsed malignancies after allogeneic bone marrow or peripheral blood stem cell transplantation and who are not eligible for other FHCRC protocols.
OUTLINE: Patients with rapidly progressive disease receive reinduction chemotherapy and radiotherapy prior to study therapy. Donor lymphocyte infusions (DLI) begin after recovery from chemotherapy or sooner, if clinically indicated. Patients receive 1 or more DLI from the original donor. Patients are followed monthly for 3 months, then every 3-6 months for 9 months.
PROJECTED ACCRUAL: An unlimited number of patients will be accrued for this study.
