Reduced Intensity Conditioning Versus Myeloablative Conditioning for Acute Myeloid Leukemia or Myelodysplastic Syndrome (BMT CTN 0901)
NCT ID: NCT01339910
(View complete trial on ClinicalTrials.gov)
DFCI Protocol ID: 12-039
The study is designed as a Phase III, multicenter trial comparing outcomes after allogeneic hematopoietic stem cell transplantation (HCT) for acute myeloid leukemia (AML) or myelodysplastic syndrome (MDS) between patients receiving myeloablative conditioning (MAC) versus reduced intensity conditioning (RIC) regimens.
