Is allo-SCT first line option for AA if sibling donor available?
First Line BMT vs IST N = 2,479 Better 10 year survival in BMT group vs IST Favorable predictors : – Younger age- Transplant after 1996 – Matched sibling donor- Short diagnosis-transplant interval – No irradiation SAA-WP, BMT. Haematologica. 2007; 92:11-18
First Line BMT vs IST Meta analysis; N= 26 Non-RCT; N=7,955 ; Heterogeneity of non RCT studies did not justify a pooled estimate Peinemann F et al. Plos One. 2011;6(4):e18572.
First-line Treatment Strategy Results of MSD HSCT have improved overtime Results of IST seem to be unchanged during the past decade IST HSCT EBMT Database
BMT vs IST Quality Adjusted Analysis in Aplastic Anemia BMT (n=52) or IST (n=155) Survival, event-free survival, and Q- TWiST (Time without symptom and toxic ity) are similar BMT-treated patients had longer periods free from symptoms, while IST-treated patients needed closer medical care, transfusion support, and medications Viollier R, et al. Ann Hematol Jan;8 4(1): BMT IST BMT
TOX = treatment-related toxicity TRANS = transfusion dependency PR = partial remission CLON = secondary clonal disorder GVHD = extensive chronic graft-versus-host disease (GvHD) Viollier R, et al. Ann Hematol Jan;8 4(1): BMT vs IST Quality Adjusted Analysis in Aplastic Anemia
Can We Improve The Result of MSD HSCT?
Factors Predicting HSCT Outcome Age Interval from diagnosis to transplantation Conditioning Bone marrow cell dose Stem cell source
Allogeneic HSCT in SAA Improved outcomes were seen overtime Less so, in the last decade with OS rates close 80% Young patients less than 20 years have best outcome Those over 50 years do poorest Those with years have intermediate outcome <20 vs 21-30p< vs 31-40p= vs 41-50p= vs >50p=0.005
HLA-identical Sibling HSCT in age > 40 years Retrospective; n=23; median age = 49 (40-68) High dose Cy + horse ATG; BMSC = 21, PBSC = 2; CSA+MTX Acute GVHD 30%; Chronic GVHD 26% Risk of early TRM: documented infection within 1 mo Median FU 9.1 yr ( ) Seattle, Sangiolo D et al. Biol Blood Marrow Transplant Oct;16(10): OS 65%
Impact of Age on Outcomes After BMT Toronto, Gupta V et al. Haematologica. 2010;95(12): Acute GVHDChronic GVHD Overall Survival N = 1,307

In non-RCT, Cy + ATG is well tolerated and effective in heavily pretreated aplastic anemia patients Lower incidence of chronic GVHD Overall survival 88% with long term follow-up Cy/ATG as Conditioning Kahl et al. Br J Haematol Sep;130(5): Storb R et al. Biol Blood Marrow Transplant. 2001;7(1): Year after HSCT
ATG in Conditioning Regimen
ATG is a favorable predictor of outcome both for BM and PB; especially for patients >20 years ATG reduces chronic GvHD (and its consequence, BOS) ATG improves survival ATG in Conditioning Regimen Bacigalupo A et al.Biol Blood Marrow Transplant. 2006;12:
A randomized controlled study No difference in graft failure, GVHD and survival The addition of ATG to conditioning regimen did not significant improve outcome Cy vs Cy/ATG as Conditioning Champlin RE et al. Blood. 2007;109: P = 0.44

Fludarabine Based as Conditioning in Patients over 30 years Retrospective; n = 30; median 46 (31- 66) BMSC = 20, PBSC = 10 Reduced incidence of graft failure (0 vs 11 %, p = 0.09) No difference in GVHD Higher probability of overall survival when adjusting for recipient’s age Maury S et al.

Conclusion (1) HSCT in younger patients give better outcome HSCT may be performed in patients age years with comparable outcome to those age below 40 years Early transplant improves survival Previous IST seems to have less effect on survival Standard conditioning is high dose cyclophosphamide with or without ATG Fludarabine based conditioning gives better outcome in patients age over 30 years
Conclusion (2) Marrow cell dose of x10 8 /kg is most appropriate to be transplanted BMT is the standard therapy PBSC should not be performed because of more incidence of GVHD and having a neagtive impact on survival and quality of life Cyclosporin and short course methotrexate is the standard GVHD prophylaxis
