Further study details as provided by Scripps Health:

Primary Outcome Measures:

  • Engraftment [ Time Frame: One year ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Evaluation of engraftment of donor stem cells by bone marrow examinations at days 30, 100, and 360 after transplant.

Secondary Outcome Measures:

  • Graft-versus-host disease [ Time Frame: One year ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Assess the incidence and severity of acute and/or chronic GVHD for patients transplanted on this protocol.

Estimated Enrollment: 50
Study Start Date: October 2001
Estimated Primary Completion Date: January 2015 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)


Assigned Interventions
Cladribine + melphalan

Cladribine + melphalan conditioning
Procedure: Nonmyeloablative Allogeneic Transplant

Cladribine 0.14 mg/kg/day for five days, melphalan 100 mg/m2 on one day

Total lymphoid irradiation conditioning
Procedure: Nonmyeloablative Allogeneic Transplant

Total lymphoid irradiation 100cGy/day times 10 days (Monday through Friday)


Ages Eligible for Study:   18 Years to 72 Years
Genders Eligible for Study:   Both
Accepts Healthy Volunteers:   No

Inclusion Criteria:

  1. Age > 55 years or
  2. Age < 55 and LVEF < 45% or creatinine clearance < 60 ml/min

Guidelines for Cladribine-Melphalan-based conditioning:

  • Bone Marrow Failure States Severe Aplastic Anemia (relapsed following immunosuppressive therapy) Paroxysmal Nocturnal Hemoglobinuria (poor prognostic features or hemosiderosis)
  • AML (first CR except for t(15;17), inv16, t(8,21); second CR; relapse failing second induction attempt)
  • ALL (first CR with at least one poor prognostic feature; second or greater CR; relapse failing reinduction attempt)
  • CML (chronic phase; accelerated phase; blast phase following reinduction attempt; 2nd chronic or accelerated phase following gleevec therapy
  • Hodgkin’s lymphoma (first or greater relapse)
  • Non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma
  • Aggressive Histology (includes T Cell NHL) Incomplete response to induction Second CR Sensitive or refractory relapse
  • Indolent Histology Second or greater relapse
  • Mantle Cell Lymphoma (any Stage – must have received induction chemotherapy)
  • Multiple Myeloma (10% residual plasmacytosis following anthracycline-based chemotherapy or residual disease following autologous transplant)
  • Waldenstrom Macroglobulinemia (must have failed either purine analogue-based chemotherapy (Fludara or 2CdA) or standard CVP therapy; hyperviscosity or cytopenias)

Guidelines for total lymphoid irradiation-based conditioning

  • MDS (RA, RARS)
  • CLL (Rai stage III or IV – must have received at least two different treatment regimens in the past)
  • Breast Cancer (symptomatic metastatic disease, who have failed standard chemotherapy)
  • Renal Cell Cancer (metastatic disease at multiple sites)
  • Malignant Melanoma (metastatic disease at multiple sites)
  • Sarcoma (all subtypes presently, unresectable metastatic disease)
  • Ovarian Cancer (stage III or IV, platinum insensitive disease, i.e. progression within 6 months of initial platinum chemotherapy)
  • Thymoma (unresectable disease)

Exclusion Criteria:

  1. Prior allogeneic stem cell or bone marrow transplant
  2. Current or past history of invasive mycotic infection
  3. Breast Feeding
