rates of durable engraftment in patients [ Time Frame: day 42 ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
The primary study end point will be hematologic engraftment. Engraftment is defined as achieving ANC larger than or equal to 500 ul/mm3 of donor origin for three consecutive measurements on different days by day +42.

Umbilical Cord Blood Transplantation in Treating Patients With High-Risk Hematologic Cancer
A Pilot Study of Unrelated Umbilical Cord Blood Transplantation in Patients With High Risk Hematologic Malignancies

RATIONALE: Umbilical cord blood transplantation may allow doctors to give higher doses of chemotherapy or radiation therapy and kill more cancer cells.

PURPOSE: This phase II trial is studying allogeneic umbilical cord blood transplantation to see how well it works when given with chemotherapy or radiation therapy in treating patients with high-risk hematologic cancer.

OBJECTIVES:

  • Determine the rates of hematologic and immune reconstitution in patients with high risk hematologic malignancies who are undergoing high dose chemoradiotherapy followed by unrelated umbilical cord blood (UCB) transplantation.
  • Determine the incidence of graft-versus-host-disease in this setting.
  • Describe the incidence of recurrent disease in these patients post UCB transplant.
  • Describe the incidence of serious infections and secondary lymphoproliferative diseases following transplantation with UCB in these patients.
  • Determine specifically whether larger recipients can be durably engrafted with unrelated UCB, and determine whether nucleated cell or progenitor cell content of the graft is predictive of hematological engraftment.

OUTLINE: Patients may undergo a back-up peripheral blood stem cell collection prior to treatment.

Patients receive 9 fractions of total body irradiation (TBI) on days -9 to -5 followed by melphalan IV for three days on days -4 to -2 and antithymocyte globulin IV or methylprednisolone IV for three days on days -3 to -1. On day 0, patients receive umbilical cord blood infusion. If TBI is not tolerated, busulfan is substituted and administered orally every 6 hours for 4 days on days -8 to -5. Cyclosporine and methylprednisolone begin on day -2 and continue for 6 months.

Patients are followed at least monthly for 1 year, then every 6 months for the second year, and then annually thereafter.

PROJECTED ACCRUAL: There will be a maximum of 48 patients accrued into this study over 4 years.

DISEASE CHARACTERISTICS:

  • Histologically confirmed high risk malignancy including:

    • Acute nonlymphocytic leukemia (ANLL) after induction failure, or in first complete remission with high risk features including stem cell or biphenotypic classification (acute myeloid leukemia (AML) M0), erythroleukemia (AML M6), acute megakaryocytic leukemia (AML M7), cytogenic markers indicative of poor prognosis, or failure to achieve complete remission after standard induction therapy
    • Acute lymphocytic leukemia (ALL) or ANLL in second or subsequent remission
    • Chronic myeloid leukemia (CML) in chronic phase

      • CML with accelerated phase or blast crisis are eligible after reinduction chemotherapy converts disease to chronic phase
    • High risk ALL in first complete remission
    • Myelodysplastic syndrome with evidence of evolution to acute myeloid leukemia

      • Refractory anemia with excess blasts
      • Refractory anemia with excess blasts in transformation
    • Non-Hodgkin's lymphoma (NHL), ANLL, or ALL with recurrent disease after autologous stem cell transplantation
  • Must also meet all the following conditions:

    • No HLA-ABC/DR identical related bone marrow or UCB donor
    • No 5/6 antigen matched related bone marrow or UCB donor
    • Condition precludes waiting to search and find a donor in the National Marrow Donor Registry
