Phase II Clinical Trial Incorporating Alemtuzumab (Campath-1H) in Combination With FK506 and Methylprednisolone for Treatment of Severe Acute Graft vs Host Disease


OBJECTIVES:

Primary

- Determine the 4-week rate of complete response in patients with severe acute
graft-vs-host disease (GVHD) treated with alemtuzumab, tacrolimus, and
methylprednisolone within 100 days after undergoing allogeneic stem cell
transplantation.

Secondary

- Determine the best response at 4 and 12 weeks in patients treated with this regimen.

- Determine 6-month survival of patients treated with this regimen.

- Determine the rate of infectious complications in patients treated with this regimen.

- Determine rate of chronic GVHD in patients treated with this regimen.

OUTLINE: This is an open-label, single-blind, multicenter study.

Patients receive methylprednisolone IV on days 1-3 and then orally or IV on days 4-14;
tacrolimus IV continuously on days 1-7 and then orally once or twice daily on days 8-180,
followed by a taper in the absence of chronic graft-vs-host disease; and alemtuzumab IV over
2 hours on days 4-6, 18, and 32. Treatment continues in the absence of unacceptable toxicity
or the development of serious infection.

After completion of study treatment, patients are followed at 2 and 4 weeks.

PROJECTED ACCRUAL: A total of 9-34 patients will be accrued for this study within 8-12
months.
