Donor Stem Cell Transplant in Treating Young Patients With Acute Myeloid Leukemia With Monosomy 7, -5/5q-, High FLT3-ITD AR, or Refractory or Relapsed Acute Myelogenous Leukemia


Killer Immunoglobulin-like Receptor (KIR) Incompatible Unrelated Donor Hematopoietic Cell Transplantation (SCT) for AML With Monosomy 7, -5/5q-, High FLT3-ITD AR, or Refractory and Relapsed Acute Myelogenous Leukemia (AML) in Children: A Children`s Oncology Group (COG) Study


Giving chemotherapy before a donor stem cell transplant using stem cells that closely match the patient`s stem cells, helps stop the growth of cancer cells. It also stops the patient`s immune system from rejecting the donor`s stem cells. The donated stem cells may replace the patient`s immune cells and help destroy any remaining cancer cells (graft-versus-tumor effect). Sometimes the transplanted cells from a donor can also make an immune response against the body`s normal cells. Giving antithymocyte globulin before transplant and cyclosporine, tacrolimus, and methotrexate before and after transplant may stop this from happening.


This phase II trial is studying donor stem cell transplant to see how well it works in treating young patients with acute myeloid leukemia with monosomy 7, -5/5q-, high FLT3-ITD AR, or refractory or relapsed acute myelogenous leukemia.
