- Hematopoietic stem cell transplantation (HSCT) is a curative therapy for severe aplastic anemia (SAA); however, the optimal conditioning regimen for HSCT with an unrelated donor has not yet been defined. A previous study using a fludarabine (FLU), cyclophosphamide (Cy), and antithymocyte globulin (ATG) conditioning regimen (study A: 50 mg/kg Cy once daily i.v. on days -9, -8, -7, and -6; 30 mg/m(2) FLU once daily i.v. on days -5, -4, -3, and -2; and 2.5 mg/kg of ATG once daily i.v. on days -3, -2, and -1) demonstrated successful engraftment (100%) but had a high treatment-related mortality rate (32.1%). Therefore, given that Cy is more toxic than FLU, we performed a new phase II prospective study with a reduced-toxicity regimen (study B: 60 mg/kg Cy once daily i.v. on days -8 and -7; 40 mg/m(2) FLU once daily i.v. on days -6, -5, -4, -3, and -2; and 2.5 mg/kg ATG once daily i.v. on 3 days). Fifty-seven patients were enrolled in studies A (n = 28) and B (n = 29), and donor type hematologic recovery was achieved in all patients in both studies. The overall survival (OS) and event-free survival (EFS) rates of patients in study B was markedly improved compared with those in study A (OS: 96.7% versus 67.9%, respectively, P =.004; EFS: 93.3% versus 64.3%, respectively, P =.008). These data show that a reduced-toxicity conditioning regimen with FLU, Cy, and ATG may be an optimal regimen for SAA patients receiving unrelated donor HSCT.
