Summary

RATIONALE: Lithium carbonate may be an effective treatment for intestinal graft-versus-host disease caused by a donor stem cell transplant. PURPOSE: This clinical trial is studying lithium carbonate in treating patients with acute intestinal graft-versus-host-disease after donor stem cell transplant.

Clinical Details

Official title: A Pilot Study to Evaluate the Potential Efficacy of Lithium Carbonate for Stimulation of Intestinal Recovery In Patients With Acute GVHD

Study design: Endpoint Classification: Efficacy Study, Intervention Model: Single Group Assignment, Masking: Open Label, Primary Purpose: Supportive Care

Primary outcome:

Functional recovery

Mucosal anatomic recovery

Tolerability as assessed by NCI CTCAE v2.0

Secondary outcome:

Chronic GVHD

Recurrent or progressive malignancy

Non-relapsed mortality

Survival

Relapse/progression-free survival

Detailed description: PRIMARY OBJECTIVES: I. To evaluate the effects of lithium on functional and mucosal anatomic recovery in the small or large bowel of patients with acute GVHD. II. Functional recovery will be evaluated according to changes in clinical manifestations of gastrointestinal GVHD. III. Mucosal anatomic recovery will be evaluated by review of results from clinically indicated endoscopic evaluations. SECONDARY OBJECTIVES: I. To assess the tolerability of lithium administration in allogeneic HCT recipients. OUTLINE: Patients receive oral lithium carbonate once or twice daily. Treatment continues for up to 8 weeks in the absence of disease progression or unacceptable toxicity.

Eligibility

Minimum age: 18 Years. Maximum age: 75 Years. Gender(s): Both.

Criteria:

Inclusion Criteria:

- Patient with a diagnosis of severe intestinal GVHD that is not improving at any time

after initial treatment with glucocorticoids for at least 7 days are eligible for enrollment; measures indicating severity of GVHD will include: a) persistent diarrhea with average daily stool volumes > 500 mL per day; or b) persistent hemorrhage that is detectable by visual inspection of the stool

- Patients with denuded mucosa caused by GVHD are eligible for enrollment, regardless

of prior treatment for acute GVHD; denuded mucosa is defined as loss (i. e., erosion or sloughing) of the epithelium in: a) at least one-third of the surface area in a 30 cm colonic segment (i. e., rectosigmoid, descending or transverse colon); or b) at least one fifth of the surface area of the second portion of the duodenum, as estimated by endoscopic evaluation; denuded mucosa must be documented by images of the duodenum and colon and by histologic evaluation of the colon

- All subjects must provide written informed consent with the use of forms approved by

the FHCRC IRB Exclusion Criteria:

- Significant renal dysfunction (estimated creatinine clearance < 30 mL/min)

- Persistent or recurrent malignancy

- Secondary malignancy

- Patients who had autologous or syngeneic marrow transplantation

- Presence of any cause of intestinal symptoms or ulceration other than GVHD

- Patients with any psychological, familial, sociological or geographical condition

potentially hampering compliance with the study protocol will be excluded
