Nijmegen breakage syndrome (NBS) is a DNA repair disorder characterized by combined immunodeficiency and a high predisposition to malignancies. HSCT appears to cure immunodeficiency, but remains challenging due to limited experience in long-term risks of transplant-associated toxicity and malignancies. Twenty NBS patients received 22 allogeneic HSCTs with TCRαβ/CD19+ graft depletion with fludarabine 150 mg/m, cyclophosphamide 20-40 mg/kg and thymoglobulin 5 mg/kg based conditioning regimens (CRs). Twelve patients additionally received low-dose busulfan 4 mg/kg (Bu group) and 10 patients (including 2 recipients of a second HSCT) treosulfan (Treo group) 30 g/m. Overall and event-free survival were 0.75 vs 1 (p = 0.16) and 0.47 vs 0.89 (p = 0.1) in the Bu and Treo groups, respectively. In the Bu group, four patients developed graft rejection, and three died: two died of de novo and relapsed lymphomas and one died of adenoviral hepatitis. The four living patients exhibited split chimerism with predominantly recipient myeloid cells and predominantly donor T and B lymphocytes. In Treo group, one patient developed rhabdomyosarcoma. There was no difference in the incidence of GVHD, viral reactivation, or early toxicity between either group. Low-dose Bu-containing CR in NBS leads to increased graft failure and low donor myeloid chimerism. Treo-CR followed by TCRαβ/CD19-depleted HSCT demonstrates a low level of early transplant-associated toxicity and enhanced graft function with stable donor chimerism.
