The study will determine the maximal tolerated dose (MTD) of panobinostat administered in combination with a fixed dose of Vidaza (5-Azacitidine) in adult patients with MDS, AML or CMML.
The drug that will be used in this study is called Azacitidine. Azacitidine belongs to a group of drugs which may restore normal control in cancer cells by affecting the genes and protein...
This study will test an experimental combination of the drugs Mylotarg and 5-azacitidine in the hopes of finding a treatment that may be effective against Acute Myeloid Leukemia that has c...
A Study of ASP2215 (Gilteritinib), Combination of ASP2215 Plus Azacitidine and Azacitidine Alone in the Treatment of Newly Diagnosed Acute Myeloid Leukemia With FMS-like Tyrosine Kinase (FLT3) Mutation in Patients Not Eligible for Intensive Induction Chem
The purpose of this study is to determine the efficacy superiority of ASP2215 and/or ASP2215 plus azacitidine versus azacitidine as measured by overall survival (OS) and event-free surviva...
The treatment of older patients with acute myeloid leukemia that is secondary to previous myelodysplastic syndrome, myeloproliferative neoplasm, or prior cytotoxic exposure remains unsatis...
Myelodysplastic syndromes (MDS) encompass a diverse group of hematologic disorders characterized by ineffective and malignant hematopoiesis, peripheral cytopenias and significantly increased risk of p...
5-Azacitidine administered as a 7-day dosing regimen (7-0-0) is approved in high risk IPSS myelodysplastic syndrome (MDS) patients. Alternative regimens such as a 5-day (5-0-0) or 7-day with a weekend...
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.
To the authors' knowledge, few population-based studies to date have evaluated the association between location of care, complications with induction therapy, and early mortality in patients with acut...
A pediatric acute myeloid leukemia involving both myeloid and monocytoid precursors. At least 20% of non-erythroid cells are of monocytic origin.
A rare acute myeloid leukemia characterized by abnormal EOSINOPHILS in the bone marrow.
An acute myeloid leukemia in which abnormal PROMYELOCYTES predominate. It is frequently associated with DISSEMINATED INTRAVASCULAR COAGULATION.
An acute leukemia exhibiting cell features characteristic of both the myeloid and lymphoid lineages and probably arising from MULTIPOTENT STEM CELLS.
Clonal expansion of myeloid blasts in bone marrow, blood, and other tissue. Myeloid leukemias develop from changes in cells that normally produce NEUTROPHILS; BASOPHILS; EOSINOPHILS; and MONOCYTES.
