BACKGROUND: There is currently little information on haploidentical hematopoietic cell transplantation (haplo-HCT) for T-lymphoblastic lymphoma (T-LBL). Data about peripheral blood stem cells (PBSC) as a reliable graft source for T-LBL treatment are lacking.
MATERIAL AND METHODS: T-LBL patients who underwent T cell-replete haploidentical peripheral blood hematopoietic cell transplantation (haplo-PBHCT) from July 2007 to January 2017 were retrospectively evaluated.
RESULTS: A total of 25 patients (age ≥15 years) with median age of 24 (range 15–51) years were enrolled. The median number of CD34+ cells infused was 5.0 (1.6–14.4) 106/kg. Sustained myeloid engraftment with full donor chimerism was achieved in all patients. The cumulative incidence of grades 2 to 4 acute graft-versus-host disease (GVHD) at day 100 was 24%. Two-year extensive chronic GVHD cumulative incidence was 20%. The 3-year overall survival rate for all patients was 70%. The median survival time of the complete remission (CR) group was better than that of the non-CR group (not reached vs. 9 m) (P<0.01). The relapse rate was 17% for patients who obtained CR and were given haplo-HCT as consolidation treatment.
CONCLUSIONS: This study indicates that haplo-PBHCT is a safe and effective method for the treatment of T-LBL.
