June 21, 1999 University of Rochester Cancer Center First to Participate in International Clinical Trial The trial compares the use of Extracorporeal Photopheresis (ECP) in conjunction with standard therapy versus standard therapy alone for the treatment of Chronic Graft vs. Host Disease. Jane Liesveld, M.D., Director of the Bone Marrow Transplant Unit is currently directing the trial which is sponsored by Therakos. During the trial the patient is treated with an instrument that exposes specific blood cells to ultraviolet light with the combination of medication. This is a process of removing and separating specific cells of the blood and returning all but the cells that need to be treated to the patient. After the blood is treated it is then returned to the patient. This procedure allows the patient to be treated with minimal side effects. "This treatment will potentially provide an additional means of controlling graft vs. host disease, a process that often impairs quality of life and functional capacity in patients who have undergone marrow transplantation," said Jane Liesveld, M.D., Director of Bone Marrow Transplant Unit.

DNA screening tool may be useful in tailoring treatments for cancer and other diseases
SEATTLE – Nearly half of all Americans carry a genetic mutation that to some degree interferes with their ability to metabolize folate, a B vitamin found in fruits, grains, and dark green, leafy vegetables. Also available in supplement form as folic acid, this important nutrient perhaps is best known for its role in preventing birth defects in the brain and nervous system. People with sluggish folate metabolism in general are at no greater risk for disease than the rest of the population. However, when exposed to a poor diet or certain drugs, these people can suffer significant clinical consequences, particularly if they are among the approximately 10 percent of Americans born with the most limited ability to process this nutrient. Cornelia Ulrich, Ph.D., and colleagues from the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center will report these findings in the July 1 issue of

Hutch to serve as global hub for HIV vaccine and prevention: Two new international networks build on years of Hutch research on AIDS Capping years of leader- ship in a multitude of HIV research projects, the Hutchinson Center will take center stage in two landmark, international HIV-vaccine and HIV-prevention projects. Both funded by the National Institutes of Health, the HIV Vaccine Trials Network and the HIV Prevention Trials Network will dramatically expand international research on HIV, the cause of AIDS. The HIV Vaccine Trials Network will provide a comprehensive, clinically based, worldwide network to develop and test preventive vaccines for the virus that has caused a global epidemic affecting an estimated 40 million people. “This represents the development of a new global international clinical trials network to speed the development of an HIV vaccine,” says Dr. Larry Corey, head of the Hutch’s infectious diseases program and professor at the University of Washington. Corey will direct the network’s core operations center, which will be located at the Hutch.

      France, 1988 - A team of doctors, including Dr. Eliane Gluckman , a member of the Cryobanks International S.A.M.B.A. performed the first human cord blood transplant into a child with Fanconi Anemia successfully. In 1991, a transplant was successfully performed on a child with chronic myelogenous leukemia. These initial accomplishments opened doors to use cord blood for situations where traditional bone marrow was routinely utilized.
      Since then, over 2,000 cord blood transplants have been performed. Cord blood has been used to treat malignancies such as Leukemias, Lymphomas (Hodgkin's Disease), Neuroblastoma, (Brain Tumor) and non-malignancies such as Sickle Cell Anemia, XLP Disease, SCIDS (Bubble-Boy Disease), Wiskott-Aldrich Syndrome, Beta-Thalessemia, Hunter's Syndrome, Fanconi Anemia, and Aplastic Anemia.

Regression of Advanced Kidney Cancer Seen With Allogeneic Stem Cell Transplantation Researchers at the National Institutes of Health (NIH) report that advanced kidney cancer, a disease notoriously resistant to therapy and usually fatal, can be completely or partially reversed in some patients with the use of blood stem cell transplants from a healthy sibling donor. Using this investigational approach, substantial and occasionally complete regression of widespread tumors was observed in the majority of 19 patients with treatment-resistant metastatic renal cell carcinoma who were treated at the National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute (NHLBI) Stem Cell Transplant unit. This Phase I/II study appears in the Sept. 14, 2000, issue of the New England Journal of Medicine Principal investigator and lead author of the paper, Richard Childs, M.D., of NHLBI's Hematology Branch said, "Considering that there are no current treatments that benefit patients who have not responded to conventional therapy, we are very encouraged by the early high response rate in our first group of patients treated, with a few patients remaining completely free of cancer more than two years from the initiation of therapy." According to Childs, the overall response rate of greater than 50 percent in patients with treatment-resistant disease is remarkable, considering that current first-line therapy is effective in less than 20 percent of cases. Three patients (16 percent) had total regression of all metastases and seven (38 percent) showed partial regression of disease.

Clinical Tissue Transplantation Organ and tissue transplantation has advanced from an experimental procedure used only in life-threatening, emergency procedures to the treatment of choice for a wide range of clinical conditions. It includes transplants for life-enhancement as well as the traditional lifesaving. The table at the right lists the most commonly transplanted tissues (except blood). The various tissues present the surgeon with different challenges. For example, failure of liver transplants is more often due to vascular complications and blood seepage than from rejection. Graft vs. host disease Most bone marrow transplants are done on patients who are immune deficient, either naturally (eg, a genetic defect) or artificially (eg, cytotoxic drug and radiation treatment of cancer). This means the patient does not have a functioning immune system to reject the transplant. However, the transplant does contain immunologically competent cells to reject the recipient! This situation is called graft vs. host disease (GvH) and is probably the greatest problem in the use of bone marrow transplants, affecting 50-70% of marrow recipients. Stimulated Th1 cells produce cytokines that generate inflammatory reactions in the skin, liver, and GI tract. It can lead to liver failure and GI hemorrhage. Promising efforts are being made to "purge" the donor bone marrow of T cells, so they are not available to attack the host. However, some evidence shows that a low level GvH may be beneficial in some situations. In artificially immunosuppressed individuals, a few donor lymphocytes may overwhelm any remaining host T cells and prevent graft rejection.

MINNEAPOLIS 03/27/98 - Amy Strelzer Manasevit's wish to improve the lives of patients who receive bone marrow transplants comes true today when The Marrow Foundation and the National Marrow Donor Program® (NMDP) announce the first two Amy Strelzer Manasevit Scholars. Dr. Stephanie Lee of the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute in Boston, and Dr. Paul Orchard of the University of Minnesota in Minneapolis were selected, through a competitive process, to receive the two-year research grants. The doctors will receive their awards at a special presentation held as part of the Annual Meeting and Scientific Assembly of the American Society for Blood and Marrow Transplantation (ASBMT) in Miami Beach, Fla. Working in collaboration with The Marrow Foundation and the NMDP, Amy's family created the "Amy Strelzer Manasevit Scholars Program for the Study of Post-Transplant Complications" to carry out her wishes after she died of complications following an unrelated marrow transplant. Dr. Stephen Forman, head of the marrow transplant program at City of Hope National Medical Center in Duarte, Calif. chaired the new program's prestigious awards committee. Forman says, "This first-of-its-kind research initiative will fund six Scholars who will be engaged in basic research leading to clinical solutions for post-transplant complications to improve long term survival rates and the quality of life for transplant recipients."

Bone Marrow Transplantation
Over the past two decades, allogeneic bone marrow transplantation (BMT) has evolved from an experimental procedure reserved for patients with refractory leukemia into a rapidly expanding area of clinical investigation that offers potential cure for patients with aplastic anemia, acute and chronic leukemia, breast cancer, and selected types of lymphoma. The objective of BMT is to provide a healthy stem cell population that will differentiate into blood cells to replace deficient or pathologic cells of the host. Intensive preparative regimens, effective graft-vs.-host disease (GVHD) prophylaxis, treatment with cyclosporine-based regimens, and improvements in supportive care (eg, antibiotics, herpesvirus and cytomegalovirus prophylaxis) have brought significant improvements in long-term disease-free survival in patients undergoing BMT. Cytokine treatment after BMT (eg, with colony-stimulating factor) is being tested to see if engraftment can be improved or accelerated. Indications: Patients with acute myeloid or lymphoblastic leukemia may benefit from BMT. Patients with acute myeloid leukemia transplanted in first remission can now expect an approximately 50 to 60% likelihood of long-term disease-free survival. Similar probabilities are also achievable after transplantation of adults with acute lymphoblastic leukemia in first remissions. Probability of relapse correlates with remission status at the time of the transplant, ranging from 20% in first remission to 60% with more advanced disease. Long-term survival for patients with chronic myelocytic leukemia who receive BMT in the phase of remission is 60 to 70%.
