We retrospectively analyzed allogenic stem cell transplantation (allo-SCT) outcomes in 82 patients with AML or MDS were conditioned with fludarabine, idarubicin, intravenous-busulfan and cytarabine (FIBA) or busulfan and cyclophosphamide (BuCy). Compared to BuCy regimen, reduced intensity conditioning (RIC) with FIBA was associated with a lower incidence of severe acute GVHD, lower NRM and a similar relapse rate. There was no significant difference in the 3 year overall survival (OS), but this is possibly due to the limited number of patients. The FIBA regimen is promising to replace BuCy regimen because of better security and similar relapse rate.
