Purpose: 

The study is designed as a three arm randomized Phase III, multicenter trial comparing two calcineurin inhibitor (CNI)-free strategies for Graft-versus-Host Disease (GVHD) prophylaxis to standard tacrolimus and methotrexate (Tac/Mtx) in patients with hematologic malignancies undergoing myeloablative conditioning hematopoietic stem cell transplantation.

Intervention: 
Procedure: Unmanipulated Bone Marrow Graft with Tacrolimus/Methotrexate Unmanipulated BM grafts will be administered on Day 0 to all patients according to individual institutional guidelines after appropriate processing and quantification has been performed by the local laboratory. Stem cells are administered through an indwelling central venous catheter. If infusion occurs over two days, Day 0 is the day the last infusion is completed. Procedure: Mobilized CD34-selected Peripheral Blood Stem Cell graft Mobilized CD34-selected PBSC grafts will be administered on Day 0 to all patients according to individual institutional guidelines after appropriate processing and quantification has been performed by the local laboratory. Stem cells are administered through an indwelling central venous catheter. If infusion occurs over two days, Day 0 is the day the last infusion is completed. Procedure: Unmanipulated Bone Marrow Graft with Cyclophosphamide Unmanipulated BM grafts will be administered on Day 0 to all patients according to individual institutional guidelines after appropriate processing and quantification has been performed by the local laboratory. Stem cells are administered through an indwelling central venous catheter. If infusion occurs over two days, Day 0 is the day the last infusion is completed. Drug: Cyclophosphamide Mesna will be given in divided doses IV 30 min pre- and at 3, 6, and 8 hours post-cyclophosphamide or administered per institutional standards. Mesna dose will be based on the cyclophosphamide dose being given. The total daily dose of Mesna is equal to 80% of the total daily dose of cyclophosphamide. Cyclophosphamide 50 mg/kg will be given on Day 3 post-transplant (between 60 and 72 hours after marrow infusion) and on Day 4 post-transplant (approximately 24 hours after Day 3 cyclophosphamide). Cyclophosphamide will be given as an IV infusion over 1-2 hours (depending on volume). Other Name: Cytoxan® Drug: Tacrolimus Tacrolimus will be given orally or intravenously per institutional standards starting Day -3. The dose of tacrolimus may be rounded to the nearest 0.5 mg for oral formulations. Subsequent dosing will be based on blood levels, with a target of 5-15 ng/ml. If patients are on medications which alter the metabolism of tacrolimus (e.g. azoles), the initial starting dose and subsequent doses should be altered as per institutional practices. Tacrolimus taper can be initiated at a minimum of 90 days post HSCT if there is no evidence of active GVHD. The rate of tapering will be done according institutional practices but patients should be off tacrolimus by Day 180 post HSCT if there is no evidence of active GVHD. Other Names: Prograf® FK506 Drug: Methotrexate Methotrexate will be administered at the doses of 15 mg/m2 IV bolus on Day +1, and 10 mg/m2 IV bolus on Days +3, +6 and +11 after hematopoietic stem cell infusion. The Day +1 dose of methotrexate should be given at least 24 hours after the hematopoietic stem cell infusion. Dose reduction of MTX due to worsening creatinine clearance after initiation of conditioning regimen, high serum levels or development of oral mucositis is allowed according to institutional practices. Leucovorin rescue is allowed according to institutional practices. Other Name: MTX
