Full description

This is single-center, open-label, prospective study of telmisartan for the prevention of acute GVHD in approximately 60 subjects undergoing allogeneic HCT for treatment of a hematologic malignancy. Subjects will receive 160 mg Micardis brand telmisartan once daily, starting 2 days prior to HCT (day -2). Once the patient is discharged post-HCT, treatment will continue through Day +98 post-HCT for a total of 101 days. After treatment discontinuation on or before day +98 post-HCT, subjects will be followed for up to 6 months for primary and secondary endpoints.

Inclusion criteria

Diagnosis of:

  • Acute myeloid or lymphoid leukemia in remission,
  • Myelodysplastic syndrome,
  • Chronic lymphoid leukemia,
  • Non-Hodgkin lymphoma,
  • Hodgkin lymphoma,
  • Chronic myeloid leukemia in chronic or accelerated phase,
  • Myeloproliferative disorder, or
  • Multiple myeloma
  • Undergoing allogeneic HSC transplantation from a related or unrelated donor matched at least at 7 of 8 of the HLA-A, -B, -C, and DR loci ("8/8" or "7/8" match)

Undergoing allogeneic HSC transplantation after a myeloablative TBI-, busulfan-, or (non-myeloablative) melphalan-based pre-transplant conditioning regimen. Regimens for transplantation will include at one of the following agents, given in conjunction with fludarabine or cyclophosphamide:

  • Busulfan 130 mg/m2 iv daily x 2 (reduced intensity) or 4 days
  • TBI 150 cGy bid x8 doses (1200 Gy)
  • Melphalan 140 mg/m2. (Although melphalan is not a myeloablative regimen, it results in clinically significant mucositis and patients receiving this medication will be of considerable interest in the analysis of these data.)
  • Male or female patient age 18 years or older
  • Karnofsky performance status > 70% at time of initiation of pre-transplant conditioning
  • Transplantation-specific co-morbidity score of <5 at time of initiation of pre-transplant conditioning
  • Patients taking antihypertensive medications (including telmisartan) are eligible but the patient must discontinue treatment at least 48 hours prior to first dose of study medication
  • Capable of giving informed consent and having signed the informed consent form

Exclusion criteria

  • Inability to provide informed consent
  • Subjects with known heart failure, advanced renal impairment requiring renal replacement therapy, or liver failure although these patients would most likely not be eligible for HCT.
  • Subjects taking ACE inhibitors, potassium supplements, or spironolactone (or any other potassium-sparing diuretics) who cannot discontinue use prior to initiation of study treatment OR who require a high-potassium diet
  • Patient unable to discontinue current hypertension medication for medical or other reasons for two days prior to starting telmisartan
  • Chronic symptomatic hypotension, volume depletion.
