Phase 3 Study of US-ATG-F to Prevent Moderate to Severe Chronic GVHD in Adult Acute Myeloid Leukemia, Acute Lymphoid Leukemia, and Myelodysplastic Syndrome Patients After Allogeneic Stem Cell Transplantation From Unrelated Donors
Trial status: Open for Enrollment
Why is this study being done?
This study is randomized, prospective, double-blind, placebo-controlled, phase 3 study evaluating the prevention of moderate to severe chronic GVHD in patients undergoing bone marrow or peripheral blood stem cell transplantation from matched, unrelated donors for acute leukemia and myelodysplastic syndrome during the first year after transplant.
Patients meeting all the inclusion and none of the exclusion criteria will be randomized (1:1). All patients will receive premedication and study drug 3 days prior to transplantation.
