Aim: To analyze allo-HSCT outcomes in adolescents and adults with AML and to identify the main prognostic factors.

Patients and methods: We analyzed the outcome for 104 patients with AML who received allo-HSCT from matched related (n=41) and unrelated (n=63) donors. The median age was 29 (range 15–68) years. Ninety-one (88%) patients had de novo AML, and 13 (12%) had secondary AML. Thirty-three patients (32%), 31 (30%), and 40 (38%) patients were in CR1, CR2/CR3 and non-remission stage respectively. In 71 cases cytogenetic analysis was performed: 10 (10%) patients belonged to favorable, 47 (45%) to intermediate, and 14 (13%) to the unfavorable prognosis group. Thirty-three (32%) and 71 (68%) patients received myeloablative conditioning (MAC) and non-myeloablative conditioning (NMC) respectively. The hematopoietic stem cell sources were bone marrow (BM) in 40 (38%), and peripheral blood stem cells (PBSC) in 64 (62%) patients.

Results: Patients with CR1, CR2/3 and not in remission had the following 5-year overall survival (OS): 51%, 28%, and 14% after HSCT from matched related donors (p=0.0008); 60%, 23%, and 7% after HSCT from matched unrelated donors (p=0.0093). Patients in CR1 had 67% and 53% 5-year OS after MAC and NMC (p=0.6788) respectively. There was a trend to better OS in patients receiving BM graft than in PBSC recipients (67% vs. 53%, p=0.3766). The incidence of grade 3–4 acute GVHD was borderline higher after unrelated allo-HSCT than after related allo-HSCT (35% vs. 20%, p=0.068). The cumulative incidence of extensive GVHD was 9.8% and 38.4% after related and unrelated allo-HSCT respectively (p=0.01). The main cause of death after related allo-HSCT was disease progression (67%).

Conclusions: Remission status remains the main prognostic factor in AML patients receiving allo-HSCT. Patients without remission at the time of allo-HSCT have an extremely poor prognosis. Moreover our data indicate rather poor allo-HSCT results in CR2/CR3. Conditioning regimen intensity or stem cell source have no influence on allo-HSCT outcomes. OS is similar in patients receiving related and unrelated donor allo-HSCT due to a higher relapse mortality rate in the first group and higher non-relapse mortality rate in the second one. Further studies are required for risk-adapted allo-HSCT for AML in early disease stages.
