Clinical Transplant-Related Long-term Outcomes of Alternative Donor Allogeneic Transplantation
Age: Birth - 66+
Healthy Subjects: No
Study Phase: N/A
Recruitment Status: Recruiting
Start Date: June 14, 2019
End Date: March 01, 2025
The purpose of this study is to determine if a search strategy of searching for an HLA-matched unrelated donor for allogeneic transplantation if possible then an alternative donor if an HLA-matched unrelated donor is not available versus proceeding directly to an alternative donor transplant will result in better survival for allogeneic transplant recipients within 2 years after study enrollment.
Inclusion Criteria: Patients fulfilling the inclusion criteria will be eligible for enrollment in this study. Of those who consent, only patients who lack a suitable HLA-identical or 1 allele or antigen mismatched related donors are evaluable. Patients with an HLA-identical sibling or 1 allele or antigen mismatched family member donor are evaluable as long as the center deems the family member donor as unsuitable for other reasons. Patients may co-enroll with other interventional or observational studies.
1. Patients of all ages with AML, ALL, MDS, NHL, HL, AA, or SCD are eligible.
2. Any planned conditioning regimen and GVHD prophylaxis approach is eligible.
3. Patients must be considered suitable allogeneic transplant candidates at the time of enrollment based on medical history, physical examination, and available laboratory tests. Specific testing for organ function is not required for eligibility but, if available, these tests should be used by the treating physician to judge transplant suitability.
4. Patient and physician must intend to proceed with allogeneic HCT within the next 6 months if a suitable donor is identified.
5. Center plans to follow the algorithm for alternative donor identification: (a) for subjects who are Very Likely to find a MUD, attempt to identify a matched unrelated donor; (b) for a subjects who are Very Unlikely to find a MUD, proceed expeditiously to a haploidentical, cord blood or mismatched unrelated donor.
6. Signed informed consent, and assent if applicable. Consent may be signed prior to completion of family typing but patients will only be considered evaluable upon confirmation that there is no suitable HLA-identical or 1 allele or antigen mismatched related donor available.
1. Prior allogeneic HCT (prior autologous transplant is allowed)
2. Previous formal unrelated donor search
