A Phase III Randomized, Multicenter Trial Comparing Sirolimus/Tacrolimus With Tacrolimus/Methotrexate as Graft-versus-Host Disease (GVHD) Prophylaxis After HLA-Matched, Related Peripheral Blood Stem Cell Transplantation (BMT CTN #0402)

The study is designed as a phase III, randomized, open label, multicenter, prospective, comparative trial of sirolimus and tacrolimus versus tacrolimus and methotrexate as graft-versus-host disease (GVHD) prophylaxis after human leukocyte antigen (HLA)-matched, related, peripheral blood stem cell transplantation in individuals with hematologic cancer. Participants will be stratified by transplant center and will be randomly assigned to the sirolimus/tacrolimus or tacrolimus/methotrexate arms at a 1:1 ratio.

Ages Eligible For Study:

2 Years - 60 Years

Inclusion Criteria

- 6/6 HLA-matched sibling, defined by Class I (HLA-A and B) serologic typing (or higher resolution) and Class II (HLA-DRBI) molecular typing, who is willing to donate peripheral blood stem cells, and meets institutional criteria for stem cell donation. The donor must be medically eligible to donate stem cells, according to individual transplant center criteria.
