Brief Summary:
Patients who have a gastrointestinal acute Graft versus host disease (GVHD) received a first-line standard treatment of corticosteroids. For patients who do not respond or progress after an initial response have a high mortality. There is an interest in identifying effective second line therapy for these patients corticosteroid-resistant acute GVHD. Fecal microbiota transfer might be a beneficial treatment in this clinical situation with a poor prognosis and limited therapeutic options.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase

Estimated Enrollment : 32 participants
Intervention Model: Single Group Assignment
Masking: None (Open Label)
Primary Purpose: Other
Official Title: Treatment of Steroid Refractory Gastro-intestinal Acute Graft-versus-Host disEase afteR AllogeneiC Hematopoietic Stem celL Transplantation With fEcal Microbiota tranSfer
Actual Study Start Date : August 13, 2018
Estimated Primary Completion Date : September 2019
Estimated Study Completion Date : September 2020


Arm Intervention/treatment
Experimental: treated patients
Treated with Fecal Microbiota Transfer (FMT)
Drug: fecal microbiota transfer
transfer of fecal microbiota from healthy donor to the patients




Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Efficacy of FMT in the treatment of Steroid Refractory -Gastro-intestinal Acute GVHD (SR-GI-aGVHD) at D28 post inclusion [ Time Frame: up to 4 weeks post inclusion ]
    Proportion of patients achieving GI and overall GVHD response by D28, defined as Complete response (CR) or Very Good Partial Response (VGPR)


Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Safety of FMT in patients with SR-GI-aGVHD [ Time Frame: through study completion, an average of six months ]
    The overall safety of the study will be evaluated with the incidence of all Adverse Events (AEs) and Serious Adverse Events (SAEs) (frequency, grade, relationship) throughout the study period

  2. Number of patients with infectious disorders [ Time Frame: through study completion, an average of six months ]
    Evaluation of FMT activity on infectious disorders

  3. Number of multidrug resistant bacteria in faeces [ Time Frame: through study completion, an average of six months ]
    Evaluation of FMT activity on multidrug-resistant bacteria (MDRB) carriage

  4. Number of patients with Chronic GVHD [ Time Frame: through study completion, an average of six months ]
    Chronic GVHD expression

Criteria

Inclusion Criteria:

  • Patients who develop a first episode of Stage 3 or 4 Gastro-intestinal Acute Graft-versus-Host (GI-aGVHD) with gut predominance (Przepiorka D, 1995), resistant to a first line therapy with steroids (lack of improvement after 5 days or progression after 3 days of treatment with corticosteroids at 2 mg/Kg methylprednisolone equivalent dose) (SR GI-aGVHD)
  • Age ≥ 18 years old
  • Allogeneic Hematopoietic stem cell transplantation (Allo-HSCT) with any type of donor, stem cell source, GVHD prophylaxis or conditioning regimen
  • Patients able to have a minimum of 12 hours discontinuation of systemic antibiotics in order to perform the allogeneic FMT
  • Signature of informed and written consent by the subject or by the subject's legally acceptable representative

Exclusion Criteria:

  • Grade IV hyper-acute GVHD
  • Late onset aGVHD
  • Overlap chronic GVHD

  • Pregnancy: positive urinary or blood test in female of childbearing potential; lactation; absence of effective contraceptive method for female of childbearing potential
  • Other ongoing interventional protocol that might interfere with the current study primary endpoint.
