Between February 1993 and November 1997, 62 patients with severe aplastic anaemia (SAA), acute myeloid (AML), acute lymphoid (ALL), or chronic myeloid leukaemia (CML) as well as two patients with NHL underwent allogeneic marrow transplantation (BMT) from HLA-identical or one-antigen mismatched sibling or unrelated donors. Patients received preparative regimens according to the baseline disease. Patients with SAA were conditioned with ATG/Cy (2 cases) and TAI/Cy (3 cases), AML, ALL and NHL with TBI/Cy (21 cases including two retransplantations) and CML with Mitobronitol/Ara-C/Cy except two patients conditioned traditionally with Bu/Cy. For GVHD prevention, patients received cyclosporin-A (CsA) with short course methotheraxe according to the Seattle protocol. Significantly better overall survival rates were associated with the Mitobronitol (DBM)/Ara-C/Cy conditioning regarded the patients as a whole. Autologous stem cell transplantation (bone marrow and/or peripheral blood) were performed in ten cases including 2 AML, 4 non-Hodgkin's lymphoma (NHL), 3 Hodgkin's disease (HD) and 1 patient with multiple myeloma (MM). Patients with AML and two patients with NHL were conditioned with TBI/Cy and the others with BEAM combined chemotherapy. Eight out often patients are leukaemia- or lymphoma-free survivors. One patient relapsed having conventional chemotherapy and interferon maintenance therapy. One patient died in a rapid relapse five months post-BMT.
