The purpose of this study is to determine whether a reduced intensity conditioning regimen followed by allogeneic stem cell transplantation from related or unrelated donors is a feasible and effective treatment for patients with primary myelofibrosis.

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Transplant-related mortality by day +100 and by one year post-transplant, hematopoietic recovery by day +100 post-transplant, myeloid and T-cell chimerism by day +100 posttransplant, toxicity of the regimen acc. to Bearman scale [ Time Frame: Follow-up until day +1095 ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • VOD-Staging and VOD-Grading acc. to the McDonald-scale, incidence of GvHD, overall survival post-transplant, disease-free survival post-transplant [ Time Frame: Follow-up until day +1095 ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]

Enrollment: 106
Study Start Date: January 2003
Estimated Study Completion Date: June 2010
Estimated Primary Completion Date: June 2010 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Intervention Details:
    Procedure: allogeneic HSCT
    dose-reduced conditioning

Ages Eligible for Study:   18 Years to 70 Years
Genders Eligible for Study:   Both
Accepts Healthy Volunteers:   No

Inclusion Criteria:

  • Disease: Histologically proven Myelofibrosis with myeloid metaplasia/MMM defined as per the Italian Consensus Conference on MMM diagnosis with either primary MMM or secondary to Polycythaemia vera or essential thrombocythaemia with

    • "intermediate risk" or "high risk" score according to the Lille Scoring System
    • OR "low risk" score according to the Lille Scoring System with constitutional symptoms (fever, night sweat, weight loss > 5% of body weight)
    • OR "high risk" score according to the Cervantes score
  • Age:

    • Patients between 50 and 70 years of age and no limited life expectancy for other reasons than MMM
    • Patients under 50 years of age who are not eligible for a standard myeloablative conditioning, (e.g., because of prior autologous stem cell, history of severe infections like fungal infections, history of cardiac toxicity or other reasons according to the treating physician)
  • HLA compatible or identical donor, related or unrelated (one mismatch allowed)
  • Written informed consent of the patient

Exclusion Criteria:

  • Positive search for bcr-abl on blood.
  • Serious irreversible renal, hepatic, pulmonary or cardiac disease
  • Central nervous involvement
  • Positive serology for HIV
  • Pregnant or lactating women
  • Patients with a life-expectancy of less than six months because of another debilitating disease
  • Serious psychiatric or psychological disorders
