- Eligible Diseases
- Acute Myeloid Leukemia (AML): high risk CR1 (as evidenced by preceding MDS, high
risk cytogenetics, ≥ 2 cycles to obtain CR, erythroblastic or megakaryocytic
leukemia, FLT-3 ITD +; CR2+. All patients must be in CR as defined by
hematological recovery, AND <5% blasts by light microscopy within the bone marrow
with a cellularity of ≥15%.
- Very high risk pediatric patients with AML: Patients <21 years, however, are
eligible with (M2 marrow) with < 25% blasts in marrow after having failed one or
more cycles of chemotherapy.
- Acute Lymphocytic Leukemia (ALL): factor that define high risk CR1 include but
are not limited to cytogenetics demonstrating t(9;22), t (1:19), t(4;11), other
MLL rearrangements, hypodiploidy, or IKZF1 abnormalities), DNA index < 0.81, > 1
cycle to obtain CR or presence minimal residual disease (MRD). Patients in CR2+
are eligible. All patients must be in CR as defined by hematological recovery,
AND <5% blasts by light microscopy within the bone marrow with a cellularity of
- Very high risk pediatric patients with ALL: patients <21 years are also
considered high risk CR1 if they had M2 or M3 marrow at day 42 from the
initiation of induction or M3 marrow at the end of induction. They are eligible
once they achieved a complete remission.
- Chronic Myelogenous Leukemia excluding refractory blast crisis: To be eligible in
first chronic phase (CP1) patient must have failed or be intolerant to imatinib
- Plasma Cell Leukemia after initial therapy, who achieved at least a partial
- Myelodysplasia (MDS) requiring transplant as defined as: IPSS INT-2 or High Risk;
R-IPSS High or Very High; WHO classification: RAEB-1, RAEB-2; Severe Cytopenias:
ANC < 0.8, Anemia or thrombocytopenia requiring transfusion; Poor or very poor
risk cytogenetics based on IPSS or R-IPSS definitions; therapy-related MDS.
Blasts must be < 5% by bone marrow aspirate morphology.
- Chronic Lymphocytic Leukemia/Small Lymphocytic Lymphoma (CLL/SLL), Marginal Zone
B-Cell Lymphoma or Follicular Lymphoma are eligible if there was disease
progression/relapse within 12 of achieving a partial or complete remission.
Patients who had remissions lasting > 12 months, are eligible after at least two
prior therapies. Patients with bulky disease (nodal mass greater than 5 cm)
should be considered for de-bulking chemotherapy before transplant.
- Lymphoplasmacytic Lymphoma, Mantle-Cell Lymphoma, Prolymphocytic Leukemia, NK
cell malignancies are eligible after initial therapy in CR1+ or PR1+.
- Large Cell NHL > CR2/> PR2: Patients in CR2/PR2 with initial short remission (<6
months) are eligible.
- Lymphoblastic Lymphoma, Burkitt's Lymphoma, and other high-grade NHL after
initial therapy if stage III/IV in CR1/PR1 or after progression if stage I/II < 1
- Multiple Myeloma beyond PR2: Patients with chromosome 13 abnormalities, first
response lasting less than 6 months, or β-2 microglobulin > 3 mg/L, may be
considered for this protocol after initial therapy.
- Myeloproliferative Syndromes
- Organ Function Criteria Adequate organ function is defined as:
- Liver: AST and ALT < 5 x upper limit of normal and bilirubin < 3 x upper limit of
- Renal: Creatinine ≤ 2.0 mg/dl (adults) and estimated glomerular filtration rate
(GFR) ≥ 40 mL/min (pediatrics). Adults with a creatinine > 1.2 mg/dl or a history
of renal dysfunction must have estimated glomerular filtration rate (GFR) > 40
- Albumin > 2.5 g/dL
- Cardiac: Absence of decompensated congestive heart failure, or uncontrolled
arrhythmia and left ventricular ejection fraction > 35%.
- Pulmonary: DLCOcorr ≥ 40% predicted, and absence of O2 requirements. For children
that are not able to cooperate with PFTs, a pulse oximetry with or without
exercise should be attempted. If neither test can be obtained it should be
clearly stated in the physician's note.
- If recent mold infection (e.g. aspergillus) must have minimum of 30 days of therapy
and responsive disease and be cleared by Infectious Disease
- Females of child bearing potential and sexually active males must agree to use
adequate birth control during study treatment
- Voluntary written consent (adult or parent/guardian with presentation of the minor
information sheet, if appropriate)
- Pregnant or breast feeding. The agents used in this study include Pregnancy Category
D: known to cause harm to a fetus. Females of childbearing potential must have a blood
test or urine study within 14 days prior to registration to rule out pregnancy.
- Untreated active infection
- Active CNS disease
- Active HIV infection or known HIV positive serology
- Congenital bone marrow failure syndrome
- Previous irradiation that precludes the safe administration of an additional dose of
200 cGy of TBI
- CML in refractory blast crisis
- Intermediate or high grade NHL, mantle cell NHL, and Hodgkin disease that is
progressive on salvage therapy. Stable disease is acceptable to move forward provided
it is non-bulky.
- Multiple myeloma progressive on salvage chemotherapy
