GVHD prophylaxis to prevent severe (grade III-IV) acute GVHD in recipients of
alternative donor (mismatched related donor and unrelated donor) hematopoietic stem
cell transplants.

Avalos, Belinda 
To determine the maximal tolerated dose (MTD) and/or tolerable dose of escalating doses of clofarabine starting from 20mg/m2/day to 40mg/m2/day from Day 1 to Day 5 in combination with mitoxantrone 12mg/m2/day on Day 3-6 as reinduction therapy for children, adolescents and young adults with poor risk refractory/relapsed acute leukemia or high grade NHL.
