Four decades of stem cell transplantation for Fanconi anaemia in the Netherlands.

This article presents the haematopoietic stem cell transplantation (SCT) results of the complete Dutch Fanconi anaemia (FA) patient cohort. Sixty-eight Dutch FA patients have been transplanted since 1972. In total, 63 (93%) patients engrafted, 54 after first SCT and 9 after second SCT. Fludarabine (FLU)-based conditioning was associated with decreased graft failure (odds ratio 0·21, P = 0·01), decreased early mortality (hazard ratio 0·25, P = 0·01) and improved 5-year overall survival (FLU 87·8% [standard error (SE) 5·1%] versus non-FLU 59·3% [SE 9·5%], P = 0·01). Late mortality was mainly caused by squamous cell carcinoma. Twenty-two patients were treated with the current Dutch FA conditioning regimen (FLU 150 mg/m(2) and cyclophosphamide 30 mg/kg ± anti-thymocyte globulin - no irradiation). Stem cell donors were matched related (n = 8) or alternative donors (n = 14). Stable engraftment after first SCT was achieved in 19 (86%) patients. At a median follow-up of 3·9 years 20 (91%) patients are alive. Our study provides a unique overview of a nation-wide SCT cohort illustrating the major improvements in treatment regimen and patient outcome in recent years. It shows that a non-irradiation and busulfan-free conditioning regimen can be used successfully, also in alternative donor SCT. Furthermore, it underlines the importance of late cancer screening and comprehensive care for this complex disorder.
