Age minimum: 15years-old
Age maximum: 69years-old
Gender: Male and Female
Health Condition(s) or Problem(s) studied
Refractory hematologic disorders, including 1. Acute myelogenous leukemia 2. Acute lymphoblastic leukemia 3. Myelodysplastic syndrome 4. Chronic myelogenous leukemia 5. Malignant lymphoma 6. Aplastic anemia
For GVHD prophylaxis, MMF is administered 4-6 h after allo-SCT at a dose of 1000 mg i.v. (diluted to a concentration of 6 mg/ml using 5% Dextrose, over 2 h) thrice daily (or twice daily in the case of cord blood transplantation) from day 0 to day 10 (for up to 14 days). Thereafter, patients are changed to p.o. MMF at the same dose and interval. After day 31, the dose tapers depending on individual risk factors for GVHD.
Blood samples (2 ml) for PK analysis are collected in EDTA tubes at 0, 0.5, 1, 2, 4, 8, and 12 h after the morning dose on days 2 and 9 during i.v. MMF administration and at 0, 1, 2, 4, 8, and 12 h on day 16 during p.o. MMF administration.
Total mycophenolic acid (MPA) levels are quantified by reverse-phase HPLC.
After quantification, non-compartmental analyses of total MPA concentration time data are conducted to estimate the AUC.
Primary Outcome(s)
1. PK analysis of i.v. MMF, and comparison of PK parameters between i.v. and p.o. MMF
2. Grade of treatment-related toxicity by using i.v. MMF
Secondary Outcome(s)
1. Time to hematopoietic recovery
2. The cumulative incidence and severity of acute GVHD until day 100
3. Overall survival and progression-free survival at day 100 and 1-year after allo-SCT
4. Drug interaction studies with MMF
