Abstract

The role of allogeneic blood or marrow transplantation (alloBMT) for peripheral T cell lymphoma (PTCL) remains to be defined. There is growing interest in reduced-intensity conditioning (RIC) regimens and/or utilization of human leukocyte antigen haploidentical (haplo) grafts given concerns about treatment-associated toxicities and donor availability. We reviewed the outcomes of 44 consecutive, related donor alloBMTs for PTCL performed at Johns Hopkins Hospital from 1994 to 2011, including 18 RIC/haplo alloBMTs. Patients receiving RIC (n = 24) were older, with median age of 59 years (range, 24 to 70), than patients receiving myeloablative conditioning (MAC, n = 20), with median age of 46 years (range, 18 to 64), P = .01. The median age at RIC/haplo alloBMT was 60 years. The estimated 2-year progression-free survival (PFS) was 40% (95% confidence interval [CI], 26% to 55%) and overall survival (OS) was 43% (95% CI, 28% to 59%). In older patients (≥60, n = 14), the estimated 2-year PFS and OS were 38% (95% CI, 18% to 79%) and 45% (95% CI, 24% to 86%), respectively. On unadjusted analysis, there was a tendency toward superior outcomes for alloBMT in first remission versus beyond first remission, with an estimated 2-year PFS of 53% (95% CI, 33% to 77%) versus 29% (95% CI, 9% to 45%), P = .08. On competing risk analysis, the 1-year cumulative incidence of relapse was 38% for MAC/HLA-identical alloBMTs and 34% for RIC/haplo alloBMTs. Estimated 1-year nonrelapse mortality was 10% for MAC and 8% for RIC (11% for RIC/haplo alloBMT). On unadjusted landmark analysis, patients with acute grade II-IV or chronic graft-versus-host disease (GVHD) had a 17% probability of relapse (95% CI, 0% to 39%), compared with 66% (95% CI, 48% to 84%) in patients without GVHD, P = .04. Utilization of RIC and alternative donors expands treatment options in PTCL to those who are older and unable to tolerate high-dose conditioning, with outcomes comparable with approaches using myeloablative regimens and HLA-matched donors. AlloBMT may be appropriate in first remission in select high-risk cases.
