Haploidentical SCT is the therapeutic modality for patients lacking an HLA-identical donor. RIC ensures good tolerability and safety, and early stable full donor chimerism with a potential GvT effect. Since 2001 we have performed 44 haplo-transplantations from relatives in 38 pts with poor prognostic malignancies: 9 AML, 4 ALL, 4 CML, 5 JMML, 1 MDS, 3 NHL, 7 NBIV, 4 EWS, and 1 melanoma. The RIC regimen included Fludarabine 180 mg/m2, and ATG 40 mg/kg in combination with Busulfan 8 mg/kg (n=31) or Treosulfan 30000 mg/m2 (n=7). The PBSC with a median number of 6.3 (2–12.5) х106 CD34+cells/kg were infused after incubation in vitro with vincristine and methylprednisolone. T-depletion was not performed. GvHD prophylaxis consisted of short methotrexate and cyclosporine A or tacrolimus.

Three pts with leukemia progression at the time of SCT didn’t recover and died. Four pts with JMML/MDS rejected and relapsed in the first 2 mos after SCT. Thirty-three pts (82.5%) recovered with full donor chimerism. The incidence of acute GvHD was gr. I–II, 22 pts (64%), gr III, 6 pts (18%), and gr. IV, 0%. Acute GvHD was successfully treated with steroids and ATG. The incidence of chronic GvHD was 52% (mainly extensive). Five pts were regrafted (4 JMML/MDS, 1 CML). Two of them engrafted, and one of them is alive and disease-free at 3 years. Nine pts are alive and well with a median follow-up of 41 (8.1–88.5) mos, 20 pts died from relapse, 2 pts died from acute GvHD, and 7 pts from chronic GvHD and infections. The relapse rate at 1 yr was 75% and 33% for solid tumor and leukemia/lymphoma pts. DFS and EFS were 54% and 22% with a median follow-up of 45 and 25 mos for hematological malignancies vs. 20% and 8% at 10 and 8 mos in pts with solid tumors, respectively.

Haploidentical transplantation following reduced-intensive conditioning is feasible and safe if an appropriate GvHD prophylaxis is given. This strategy is applicable to very high-risk and potentially incurable patients if no conventional donor is available.
