Transplant Complications Working Party: Call for participation in three studies

Transplant Complications Working Party (TCWP)

TCWP Non interventional study: EASIX to predict alloSCT outcome.

PI:  Olaf Penack and Thomas Luft.

Primary objective: To estimate the prognostic ability of EASIX before conditioning (i.e. at the day of hospital admission for alloSCT), at day of transplantation, at day 14 and at day 28 on 1-year NRM.

Inclusion Criteria:
  • First alloSCT in children and adults with PBSCs (all donor types).
  •  Previous autoSCT is not an exclusion criterion.
  • Patients with acute leukemia, MDS, MPN or lymphoma (all disease stages).
  • Myeloablative and dose-reduced conditioning (all types of GVHD prophylaxis).

Expected study period: The inclusion period has been extended to May 31st 2020. Follow up will be till day +365 after alloSCT.

TCWP Non interventional study: Complications of T cell-repleted haploidentical stem cell transplantation with post-transplant cyclophosphamide.

PI: Grzegorz Basak.

Primary objective: To document incidence and frequency of infectious and non-infectious complications after posttransplant cyclophosphamide-based haploSCT.

Inclusion Criteria:
  • Adult patients (>=18y old at time of transplant).
  • Patients in whom T cell-replete haploidentical stem cell transplantation with posttransplant cyclophosphamide has been performed between November 2017 and December 2019.

Expected study period: 2017-2022 (registration: 1st November 2017- end of inclusion extended to 30th June 2020, 2 years follow up).

TCWP Retrospective study: Retrospective study on the incidence, severity, management and outcome of sinusoidal obstruction syndrome/ veno-occlusive disease of the liver in allogeneic haematopoietic stem cell transplantation in adult patients.

PI: Tapani Ruutu.

The landscape of sinusoidal obstruction syndrome / veno-occlusive disease of the liver (SOS/VOD) has changed considerably during the recent years. There have not been any satisfactory means to predict in an early phase which patients will develop severe SOS/VOD. Early prediction has become particularly important as effective treatment has become available, and early treatment has been shown to result in improved outcome.

Primary Objective: Objectives:

  • To determine the present incidence of SOS/VOD in adult patients
  • To evaluate the outcome of patients with SOS /VOD (survival, resolution of SOS/VOD), overall and in relation to the severity grade
  • To describe the treatments given for SOS/VOD, regarding the severity grade

Conduct of the study:

All allogeneic EBMT centers treating adult patients will be invited by the Paris data office to participate in the study.

The study period will be a fixed period of one year, year 2018.

The centers which agree to participate will be provided with a list of their adult allogeneic transplant patients transplanted in 2018. They will be asked to report which of the patients had SOS/VOD and which did not.

Patients who developed SOS/VOD are reported in detail. In addition to the routine EBMT reporting, the centers report on a specific MedB/C form the SOS/VOD risk factors, SOS/VOD prophylaxis, data of diagnostic procedures, treatment and outcome.

After the initial MedB/C report, later follow-up will be according to the routine EBMT reporting.

No reporting of data from patients who do not develop SOS/VOD is requested for the present study.

Study population: Adult patients with SOS/VOD.

  • Adults Patients transplanted in 2018·
  • Allo transplantation
  • SOS/VOD within 100 days post HSCT
  • All diseases

Study period: patients transplanted in 2018. The deadline for the retrospective data collection is extended till the 28th February 2020

TCWP prospective study: SFAST : A cross-sectional study on the Sexual Function of Adult Survivors and their partners 3 and 15 years Post allogeneic Stem Cell Transplantation

PI: Corien Eeltink 

Primary objective:  to explore sexual functioning of alloHCT survivors (and their partners) at 2-4 years post HCT & at 14-16 years post HCT.

Inclusion Criteria:
  • allogeneic SCT recipients (all diseases)
  • Age ≥18 years
  • 2 - 4 year or 14 - 16 years post transplantation at the time of data collection without major cognitive impairement
  • Able to read and write in English, French, German, Italian or Dutch.
