Sirolimus as Treatment of Steroid-Refractory or Steroid-Dependent Chronic Graft-Versus-Host Disease
A Phase II Trial of Sirolimus as Treatment of Steroid-Refractory or Steroid-Dependent Chronic Graft-Versus-Host Disease

To study the effectiveness of an immunosuppressive drug, sirolimus in the treatment of chronic graft versus host disease in combination with prednisone.

The purpose of this trial is to study the effectiveness of an immunosuppressive drug, sirolimus, in the treatment of chronic graft versus host disease in combination with prednisone. Graft versus host disease (GVHD) is a common complication in patients who have received blood or marrow transplantation from a related or unrelated donor. Chronic GVHD occurs approximately 100 days after transplantation and is the result of the donor immune system recognizing the patient's tissues as foreign and creating harmful effects on the patient';s organs. We hope the use of sirolimus will decrease the significant disabling effects and deaths caused by chronic GVHD.

Interventional
Phase 2
Allocation: Non-Randomized
Endpoint Classification: Safety/Efficacy Study
Intervention Model: Single Group Assignment
Masking: Open Label
Primary Purpose: Treatment
  • Graft vs Host Disease
  • Blood and Marrow Transplant (BMT)
  • Drug: Sirolimus
    Patients will receive sirolimus at 2 mg/day orally with monitoring of trough drug levels weekly for 2 weeks to achieve trough drug levels 7-12 ng/ml.
  • Drug: Prednisone
    Prednisone therapy will remain at the dose the patient received at the time sirolimus was begun.
Experimental: sirolimus arm
Interventions:
  • Drug: Sirolimus
  • Drug: Prednisone

Inclusion Criteria:- Histologically-confirmed active chronic GVHD >100 days following allogeneic bone marrow/peripheral blood/umbilical cord blood transplantation that has failed prior therapy. In the event that histological confirmation poses undue risk, clinical evaluation is sufficient.

  • Women must have a negative pregnancy test before sirolimus administration and women of child-bearing potential agree to use a medically acceptable contraceptive throughout the treatment period and for 3 months after discontinuation of sirolimus. Any woman becoming pregnant during the treatment period must discontinue the use of sirolimus.
  • Absolute neutrophil count (ANC) >1000/mm^3, unless receiving G-CSF to maintain neutrophil count >500/mm^3
  • Discontinuation of cyclosporine or FK506 at the time of initiating sirolimus with cyclosporine trough level <100 mg/dl and FK506 level < 5 mg/dl
  • Karnofsky performance score > or = 50 during pre-study screening
  • Written, signed, and dated informed consent

Exclusion Criteria:- Uncontrolled systemic infection

  • Unstable disease states (i.e., hepatic failure, ventilatory-dependent respiratory failure, etc.)
