The hypothesis of this study is that 5-aza and lenalidomide act synergistically in MDS and AML patients with chromosomal abnormalities involving monosomy 5 or del5q. Therefore, this phase ...
RATIONALE: Lenalidomide may stop the growth of cancer cells by blocking blood flow to the cancer. Lenalidomide may also stimulate the immune system in different ways and stop cancer cells ...
This trial is designed to explore a modified dose and schedule of azacitidine in order to more effectively address the needs of patients with low-risk myelodysplastic syndromes (MDS), i.e....
The objectives of this trial are to evaluate the safety, tolerability, maximum tolerated dose (MTD), pharmacokinetics and preliminary efficacy of volasertib in two dosing schedules of intr...
This study is a phase I, open-label, single-arm, dose escalation trial to determine the safety and activity of lenalidomide combined with lintuzumab in patients with MDS. Small groups of 3...
Relapse is the main cause of treatment failure after allogeneic stem cell transplant (alloSCT) in acute myeloid leukemia (AML) and myelodysplastic syndromes (MDS). Injectable azacitidine can improve p...
Azacitidine (AZA) is a nucleoside analog used for treatment of myelodysplasia and the prediction of AZA responsiveness is important for the therapy management.
Lenalidomide treatment in lower risk myelodysplastic syndromes-The experience of a Czech hematology center. (Positive effect of erythropoietin ± prednisone addition to lenalidomide in refractory or relapsed patients).
Lenalidomide therapy represents meaningful progress in the treatment of anemic patients with myelodysplastic syndromes with del(5q). We present our initial lenalidomide experience and the positive eff...
Myelodysplastic syndromes (MDS) encompass a diverse group of hematologic disorders characterized by ineffective and malignant hematopoiesis, peripheral cytopenias and significantly increased risk of p...
Thrombocytopenia is among the strongest predictors of decreased survival for patients with myelodysplastic syndromes (MDS) across all prognostic risk groups. The safety and efficacy of CC-486 (oral az...
Clonal myeloid disorders that possess both dysplastic and proliferative features but are not properly classified as either MYELODYSPLASTIC SYNDROMES or MYELOPROLIFERATIVE DISORDERS.
These growth factors comprise a family of hematopoietic regulators with biological specificities defined by their ability to support proliferation and differentiation of blood cells of different lineages. ERYTHROPOIETIN and the COLONY-STIMULATING FACTORS belong to this family. Some of these factors have been studied and used in the treatment of chemotherapy-induced neutropenia, myelodysplastic syndromes, and bone marrow failure syndromes.
Clonal hematopoietic stem cell disorders characterized by dysplasia in one or more hematopoietic cell lineages. They predominantly affect patients over 60, are considered preleukemic conditions, and have high probability of transformation into ACUTE MYELOID LEUKEMIA.
Neoplasms located in the blood and blood-forming tissue (the bone marrow and lymphatic tissue). The commonest forms are the various types of LEUKEMIA, of LYMPHOMA, and of the progressive, life-threatening forms of the MYELODYSPLASTIC SYNDROMES.
Group of rare congenital disorders characterized by impairment of both humoral and cell-mediated immunity, leukopenia, and low or absent antibody levels. It is inherited as an X-linked or autosomal recessive defect. Mutations occurring in many different genes cause human Severe Combined Immunodeficiency (SCID).
