2022 Pediatric Grand Rounds | Optimizing Outcome for Patients with Mismatched Unrelated Donors (MMUD) HCT for Malignant Hematological Disease
Hematopoietic stem cell transplants (HSCT) are standard of care for many patients with cancer, including subsets of patients with leukemia, myelodysplastic syndrome, lymphoma, benign hematological conditions, some genetic conditions, and some solid tumors. A barrier to offering transplant has been identifying a suitable donor, however, advances in graft versus host disease (GvHD) mitigation strategies have allowed for more aggressive donor-recipient matches.
The purpose of this lecture is to update pediatric oncologists on outcome data in utilizing post-transplant cyclophosphamide in GvHD mitigation and the impact on mismatched unrelated donor transplants.
City of Hope Pediatric Hematology/Oncology Physicians, Advance Practice Practitioners, City of Hope staff and research teams.
- Identify patients and disease subsets eligible for mismatched unrelated donors (MMUD) with post-transplant cyclophosphamide.
- Examine outcomes of patients who undergo MMUD with post-transplant cyclophosphamide.
- Integrate strategies to mitigate graft versus host disease (GvHD) in MMUD hematopoietic stem cell transplant (HSCT).
- Identify possible avenues to collaborate on future trials that encompass the adolescent and young adult (AYA) population.
- Discuss possible barriers and biases which may impact patient care (i.e., race, ethnicity, language, gender identity/orientation, age, socioeconomic status, attitudes, feelings, or other characteristics).
