Acute Myeloid Leukemia Clinical Trial
Total Marrow and Lymphoid Irradiation, Fludarabine, and Melphalan Before Donor Stem Cell Transplant in Treating Participants With High-Risk Acute Leukemia or Myelodysplastic Syndrome
This phase I studies the side effects and best dose of total marrow and lymphoid irradiation when given together with fludarabine and melphalan before donor stem cell transplant in treating participants with high-risk acute leukemia or myelodysplastic syndrome. Giving chemotherapy, such as fludarabine and melphalan, and total marrow and lymphoid irradiation before a donor stem cell transplant helps stop the growth of cells in the bone marrow, including normal blood-forming cells (stem cells) and cancer cells. When the healthy stem cells from a donor are infused into the patient they may help the patient's bone marrow make stem cells, red blood cells, white blood cells, and platelets.
I. To determine the maximum tolerated dose/recommended phase II dose (MTD/RP2D) of total marrow and lymphoid irradiation (TMLI) with fixed doses of fludarabine and melphalan (FM100) as a preparative regimen in patients undergoing allogeneic hematopoietic stem cell transplantation (alloHCT) and who are not eligible for standard myeloablative regimens, with either a matched donor (Arm A) or a haploidentical donor (Arm B).
II. To describe toxicities attributable to TMLI by dose level in patients treated under this regimen.
I. To evaluate the safety of the regimen, at each dose level, by assessing the following: type, frequency, severity, attribution, time course and duration of adverse events, including acute/chronic graft versus host disease (GVHD), infection and delayed engraftment.
II. To investigate the temporal effect of bone marrow residual damage in alloHCT patients after TMLI/FM100.
III. To estimate overall survival (OS), event-free survival (EFS), cumulative incidence (CI) of relapse/progression, and non-relapse mortality (NRM) at 100 days, 1 year and 2 years.
IV. Assess minimal residual disease (MRD) from bone marrow aspirates on days 30, 100, and 180 post-transplant and describe its relation to TMLI dose level and patient disease status.
V. To evaluate effect of TMLI/FM100 conditioning on immune reconstitution after alloHCT in patients receiving stem cells from matched or haploidentical donors.
OUTLINE: This is a dose-escalation study of TMLI.
Participants undergo TMLI twice daily (BID) on days -8 to -5, and receive fludarabine intravenously (IV) on days -4 to -2 and melphalan on day -2. Participants then undergo alloHCT on day 0.
After completion of study treatment, participants are followed up twice weekly for 100 days, twice monthly for 6 months, and then monthly or yearly for up to 2 years.

A pretreatment measured creatinine clearance (absolute value) of ≥ 60 ml/minute
Patients must have a serum bilirubin ≤ 2.0 mg/dl
Serum glutamic-oxaloacetic transaminase (SGOT) and serum glutamic-pyruvic transaminase (SGPT) ≤ 2.5 times the institutional upper limits of normal

PATIENT-SPECIFIC INCLUSION CRITERIA
Patients should have discontinued all previous intensive therapy, chemotherapy or radiotherapy for 2 weeks prior to commencing therapy on this study
NOTE: low dose chemotherapy or maintenance chemotherapy given within 7 days of planned study enrollment is permitted; these include hydroxyurea, 6-meraptopurine, oral methotrexate, vincristine, oral etoposide, and tyrosine kinase inhibitors (TKIs); FLT-3 inhibitors can also be given up to 3 days before conditioning regimen
All patients with prior radiation treatment to the lung, liver, and kidney will be excluded; for other scenarios of prior radiation treatment, up to 2000 cGY at 2 gray Gy per day will be allowed; inclusion of patients with previous radiation exposure will be determined based on the radiation oncologist MD evaluation and judgment
DONOR: Arm A: All candidates for this study must have an human leukocyte antigen (HLA) (A, B, C, and DR) identical sibling who is willing to donate primed blood stem cells (preferred) or bone marrow, or have a 10/10 (A, B, C, DR and DQ) allele matched unrelated donor; DQ or DP mismatch is allowed per discretion of the principal investigator
DONOR: Arm B: The recipient must have a related donor genotypically HLA-A, B, C and DRB1 loci haploidentical to the recipient; no HLA matched sibling or matched unrelated donor is available; DSA is allowed with desensitization done if recommended by donor selection committee (DSC) per City of Hope (COH) standard operating procedures (SOP)
DONOR: Both arms: All donors in both arms should be evaluated and approved by DSC
Having any uncontrolled illness including ongoing or active bacterial, viral or fungal infection
Receiving any investigational agents or concurrent biological, intensive chemotherapy or radiation therapy for the previous 2 weeks from conditioning
NOTE: low dose chemotherapy or maintenance chemotherapy given within 7 days of planned study enrollment is permitted; these include: hydroxyurea, 6-meraptopurine, oral methotrexate, vincristine, oral etoposide, and tyrosine kinase inhibitors (TKIs), FLT-3 inhibitors can also be given up to 3 days before conditioning regimen

Patients with other malignancies are ineligible for this study, other than non-melanoma skin cancers
The recipient has another medical problem or neurologic/psychiatric dysfunction which would impair his/her ability to be compliant with the medical regimen and to tolerate transplantation or would prolong hematologic recovery in which the opinion of the principal investigator would place the recipient at unacceptable risk
Patients may not have had a prior autologous or allogeneic transplant
Patients may not have received more than 3 prior lines of intensive chemotherapy, where the regimen intent was to induce remission
In the opinion of the principal investigator (PI), the participant has a condition that will preclude them from complying with study treatment
Women of child-bearing potential and men must agree to use adequate contraception (hormonal or barrier method of birth control or abstinence) prior to study entry and for six months following duration of study participation; should a woman become pregnant or suspect that she is pregnant while participating on the trial, she should inform her treating physician immediately

DONOR: Donor selection for both arms must be approved by the donor selection committee
DONOR: Evidence of active infection
DONOR: Medical or physical reason which makes the donor unlikely to tolerate or cooperate with growth factor therapy or leukapheresis
DONOR: Factors which place the donor at increased risk for complications from leukapheresis or granulocyte-colony stimulating factor (G-CSF) therapy could be harvested for bone marrow (BM) if safer for the donor and if approved by the principal investigator (PI)
