2-3 antigens mismatched BMT were performed on 32 children without a matched sibling donor. In the light of previous in vitro studies, which suggested a role of Vincristine and Methilprednisolone ex vivo treatment in modulating alloreactivity of T cells, bone marrow was treated with such a pharmacological cocktail before being infused. Acute GVHD 2° to 4° degree occurred in 46% of cases, chronic GVHD in 28%, graft failure in 13%. There was no significant difference between 2- and 3-antigens mismatched BMT as far as GVHD and graft failure are concerned.
