Azacitidine has proved prolonged overall survival in patients with high-risk MDS. Minor pilot studies have shown that treatment with Azacitidine can induce transfusion independency in previous transfusion dependent patients with low-risk MDS. This study will evaluate the effect of Azacitidine in transfusion dependent patients with low-risk MDS (IPSS low or int-1) or low risk CMML. Included patients should first have failed, or considered not being eligible to, treatment with EPO +/- G-CSF. Our hypothesis is that Azacitidine can lead to transfusion independency in this group of patients. Those patients who do not respond to treatment with Azacitidine alone, will be given treatment with the combination of Azacitidine and EPO where our hypothesis is that Azacitidine can restore sensitivity to EPO.

Azacitidine Combined to Epoetin Beta in International Prognostic Scoring System (IPSS) Low-risk and Intermediate-1 Myelodysplastic Syndrome (MDS) Patients, Resistant to Erythropoetin-stimulating Agents (ESA)
The study is aimed to treat low-risk MDS patients,who are dependent on red-blood cell transfusion due to disease-related anemia, and who have a proven resistance towards treatment with ery...
The goal of this clinical research study is to learn if CB-839 given in combination with azacitidine can help to control the disease in patients with myelodysplastic syndrome (MDS). The sa...
This study will evaluate the treatment combination of pevonedistat and azacitidine in the setting of DNA methyltransferase inhibitor(s) failure in patients with relapsed/refractory myelody...
The purpose of this study is to find out if treating people who have high-risk myelodysplastic syndrome (MDS) with 5-Azacitidine (Vidaza) prior to their allogeneic hematopoietic cell trans...
Our main objectives are to determine the optimal dose and schedule of plerixafor + G-CSF and azacitidine in patients with MDS and determine the safety and tolerability of plerixafor + G-CS...
Relapsing polychondritis (RP) is a rare autoimmune disorder, and myelodysplastic syndrome (MDS) is accompanied by RP at variable rates. Herein, we report a case with RP and MDS who responded dramatica...
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...
We evaluated the association of mutations in 34 candidate genes and response to azacitidine in 84 patients with myelodysplastic syndrome (MDS), with 217 somatic mutations identified by next-generation...
Azacitidine (AZA) is a nucleoside analog used for treatment of myelodysplasia and the prediction of AZA responsiveness is important for the therapy management.
Myelodysplastic syndromes (MDS) encompass a diverse group of hematologic disorders characterized by ineffective and malignant hematopoiesis, peripheral cytopenias and significantly increased risk of p...
Clonal myeloid disorders that possess both dysplastic and proliferative features but are not properly classified as either MYELODYSPLASTIC SYNDROMES or MYELOPROLIFERATIVE DISORDERS.
A pyrimidine analogue that inhibits DNA methyltransferase, impairing DNA methylation. It is also an antimetabolite of cytidine, incorporated primarily into RNA. Azacytidine has been used as an antineoplastic agent.
Condition with a variable constellation of phenotypes due to deletion polymorphisms at chromosome location 22q11. It encompasses several syndromes with overlapping abnormalities including the DIGEORGE SYNDROME, VELOCARDIOFACIAL SYNDROME, and CONOTRUNCAL AMOMALY FACE SYNDROME. In addition, variable developmental problems and schizoid features are also associated with this syndrome. (From BMC Med Genet. 2009 Feb 25;10:16) Not all deletions at 22q11 result in the 22q11deletion syndrome.
A myelodysplastic-myeloproliferative disease characterized by monocytosis, increased monocytes in the bone marrow, variable degrees of dysplasia, but an absence of immature granulocytes in the blood.
Rare congenital disorder with multiple anomalies including: characteristic dysmorphic craniofacial features, musculoskeletal abnormalities, neurocognitive delay, and high prevalence of cancer. Germline mutations in H-Ras protein can cause Costello syndrome. Costello syndrome shows early phenotypic overlap with other disorders that involve MAP KINASE SIGNALING SYSTEM (e.g., NOONAN SYNDROME and cardiofaciocutaneous syndrome).
A diagnostic test is any kind of medical test performed to aid in the diagnosis or detection of disease. For example: to diagnose diseases to measure the progress or recovery from disease to confirm that a person is free from disease Clin...
