Results of prospective randomized phase III study of the EBMT (Ricmac trial) dose-reduced versus standard conditioning followed by allogeneic stem cell transplantation for patients with myelodysplastic syndrome

(European Society for Blood and Marrow Transplantation) The EBMT announces the results from the RICMAC trial, published in the Journal of Clinical Oncology on Tuesday 2 May 2017. These results show evidence that reduced-intensity conditioning regimen (RIC) result in at least a 2-year relapse-free survival and overall survival similar to standard conditioning regimen (MAC) in patients with MDS or secondary acute AML.

CONCLUSION: This case describes the first reported concurrent DIIHA and DIIT due to TMP-SMX-induced antibodies in an HSCT patient. DIIHA and DIIT can present a diagnostic challenge in the setting of intermittent medication dosing. PMID: 28905389 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

Allogeneic stem cell transplant (ASCT) with HLA matched donors is increasingly used for older patients with AML/MDS. It remains unclear if haploidentical transplantation (haploSCT) is a suitable option for older patients with this disease. We analyzed 43 patients with AML/MDS (median age 61 years) who underwent a haploSCT at our institution. All the patients received a fludarabine-melphalan-based reduced-intensity conditioning regimen and post-transplant cyclophosphamide-based GVHD prophylaxis. Except one patient who had early death, the remaining 42 patients (98%) engrafted donor cells.

Rationale: Myeloid sarcoma (MS) and leukemia cutis (LC) are extramedullary tumors comprising myeloid blasts. They can occur de novo or concurrently with hematological disorders, usually acute myeloid leukemia (AML). AML chemotherapy is generally the initial therapy for MS and LC, and hematopoietic stem cell transplantation (HSCT) can be considered as additional therapy. However, treatment for older patients who are unable to continue intensive chemotherapy is not currently standardized. Patient concerns: A 71-year-old Japanese woman was diagnosed with multiple MSs associated with myelodysplastic syndrome (MDS), using bone...

Allogeneic hematopoietic stem cell transplantation (AHSCT) is a successful treatment modality for AML and MDS. Information on transplant outcomes among older patients is limited because of concern of adverse transplant-related mortality (TRM) and poor overall survival (OS).

Allogeneic transplantation is the only curative therapy for the Myelodysplastic Syndromes (MDS). Older prognostic systems such as the IPSS and IPSS-R can help determine the appropriateness of allogeneic stem cell transplantation (SCT), however the incorporation of molecular genetic profiling in MDS can allow us to refine our decision making process – not only to help decide who should undergo SCT, but how they should undergo SCT.
