CLINICAL OBSERVATIONS, INTERVENTIONS, AND THERAPEUTIC TRIALS Graft versus host disease prophylaxis with low-dose cyclosporine-A reduces the risk of relapse in children with acute leukemia given HLA-identical sibling bone marrow transplantation: results of a randomized trial

Abstract

Leukemia relapse is a major cause of treatment failure for patients with acute leukemia given allogeneic bone marrow transplantation (BMT). This study evaluated whether a reduction of the dosage of cyclosporine-A (Cs-A) used for graft versus host disease (GVHD) prophylaxis could reduce relapse rate (RR) in children with acute leukemia given BMT.
