Question 7: Did the recipient receive a subsequent HCT since the date of last report?
Indicate whether the recipient received a second (or third, etc.) hematopoietic stem cell infusion. Hematopoietic stem cells are defined as mobilized peripheral blood stem cells, bone marrow, or cord blood. The source of the hematopoietic stem cells may be allogeneic unrelated, allogeneic related, or autologous. For more information on how to distinguish infusion types (example: HCT versus DCI), see Appendix D.
If the recipient has received a subsequent HCT since the date of the last report, ensure the date of actual contact reported in question 1 is the date immediately prior to the start of the preparative regimen for the subsequent HCT. If no preparative regimen was given, report the date prior to infusion.
Question 8: Date of subsequent HCT
Report the planned or actual date of the subsequent HCT infusion. If the planned date is reported and changes, this field will need to be updated to reflect the actual date of subsequent HCT infusion. If multiple days of infusion are planned, report the first.
Question 9: What was the indication for subsequent HCT?
Indicate the reason for the subsequent HCT (check only one).
- Additional stem cells are required because the hematopoietic recovery indefinitely declined after the initial hematopoietic recovery or hematopoietic recovery was deemed insufficient or too slow for survival following previous high-dose therapy and HCT. If autologous cells are infused for this reason, this is considered autologous rescue; in this case, reporting will continue under the prior HCT date and a new Pre-TED form is not required.
- Additional stem cells are required because of the persistent presence of disease pre and post-transplant (i.e., complete remission was never achieved following the previous transplant).
- Additional stem cells are required because of relapsed primary disease (i.e., complete remission was achieved pre or post-transplant, but the disease relapsed following the previous transplant).
- Additional stem cells are given as defined by the protocol for a subsequent transplant/infusion. This transplant is not based upon recovery, disease status, or any other assessment.
- Additional stem cells are required because the recipient has developed a new malignancy. This does not include a transformation or progression of the original malignancy for which the recipient was transplanted (refer to question 407 for more information). If “new malignancy” is selected, also complete questions 407-449.
- In the case of a stable, mixed donor chimerism, the infusion of additional cells (usually lymphocytes and not mobilized stem cells) is typically classified as a DCI. Verify with the transplant physician that the cells given should be reported as a subsequent transplant and that stable, mixed chimerism is the reason for the transplant. However, in the case of declining chimerism – when the percentage of donor cells is sequentially decreasing on several studies, indicating possible impending graft failure – additional stem cells are required. Usually the donor chimerism has fallen below 30-50%.
- If additional stem cells are given for a reason other than the options listed, select “other” and complete question 10.
Question 10: Specify other indication
Specify the indication for subsequent HCT.
Question 11: Source of HSCs (check all that apply)
Report the stem cell source(s) of the recipient’s subsequent HCT. All allogeneic sources, and autologous sources with indication other than “graft failure / insufficient hematopoietic recovery”, will require another Pre-TED form to be completed for the subsequent HCT.
Question 12: Has the recipient received a cellular therapy since the date of last report? (e.g. DCI)
Indicate whether the recipient received a cellular therapy for any reason within the reporting period. The most common type of post-HCT cellular therapy would be a donor cellular infusion (DCI) or donor lymphocyte infusion (DLI). These infusions are not intended to promote hematopoiesis. If the recipient received additional cells due to engraftment issues, or if they received an infusion of unmanipulated CD34+ cellular product (stimulated peripheral blood stem cells, bone marrow, or cord blood), report as a subsequent HCT rather than a cellular therapy. For more information on how to distinguish infusion types (example: HCT versus DCI), see “Appendix D.
A DCI is a form of cellular therapy that uses cells from the original donor, and is commonly used to create a graft-versus-leukemia / tumor (GVL / GVT) effect. The recipient does not receive a preparative regimen prior to receiving the donor cells because the purpose of a DCI is to activate the immune system rather than repopulate the marrow. The recipient may, however, be given therapy prior to the infusion for the purpose of disease control. The types of cells used in a DCI include, but are not limited to: lymphocytes, unstimulated peripheral blood mononuclear cells, dendritic cells, and / or mesenchymal cells.
Other forms of cellular therapy may include cytotoxic T-lymphocytes (CTLC) to treat infections or chimeric antigen receptor T-cells (CAR T-cells) to treat persistent, progressive or recurrent disease.
Question 13: Date of cellular therapy
Report the date of cellular therapy infusion. If multiple infusions were received in the reporting period, report the earliest. If infusions are continuing from a previous instance of DCI, only report in the period during which the first infusion was received.
