RATIONALE: Drugs used in chemotherapy, such as azacitidine, work in different ways to stop the growth of cancer cells, either by killing the cells or by stopping them from dividing. Monoclonal antibodies, such as lintuzumab, can block cancer growth in different ways. Some block the ability of cancer cells to grow and spread. Others find cancer cells and help kill them or carry cancer-killing substances to them. Giving chemotherapy together with monoclonal antibodies may be a better way to block cancer growth.
PURPOSE: This phase II trial is studying the side effects and how well giving azacitidine together with lintuzumab works in treating patients with previously untreated myelodysplastic syndromes.
- To determine the complete response rate of the combination of lintuzumab and azacitidine in patients with myelodysplastic syndromes.
- To define the specific toxicities of this regimen.
- To determine the overall response rate.
- To determine the relationship between pretreatment expression of Syk and clinical response.
- To determine whether the investigational agents modulate Syk expression and to correlate drug-induced changes in Syk with response to treatment.
- To provide preliminary data on the biological activity of azacitidine as a demethylating agent (changes in target gene methylation and gene expression, DNMT1 protein expression, global methylation).
- To perform exploratory studies of azacitidine-triphosphate with global DNA methylation.
- To explore the biologic role of microRNA in determining clinical response to this regimen and achievement of the other pharmacodynamic endpoints.
OUTLINE: Patients receive azacitidine IV or subcutaneously once daily on days 1-7 and lintuzumab IV on days 2, 7, 15, and 22 (days 2 and 15 of course 1 only). Treatment repeats every 28 days for 6 courses in the absence of disease progression or unacceptable toxicity. Treatment modifications may apply according to response.
Blood and bone marrow samples are collected periodically for pharmacodynamic studies.
After completion of study treatment, patients are followed up for 5 years.

Azacitidine (AZA) is a nucleoside analog used for treatment of myelodysplasia and the prediction of AZA responsiveness is important for the therapy management.
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...
Myelodysplastic syndromes (MDS) encompass a diverse group of hematologic disorders characterized by ineffective and malignant hematopoiesis, peripheral cytopenias and significantly increased risk of p...
Leukemia is characterized as a kind of malignant clonal disease in hematological stem cells. The study showed an abnormal level of DNA methylation in leukemia cells, which further led to an abnormal e...
A replication-defective strain of Murine leukemia virus (LEUKEMIA VIRUS, MURINE) capable of transforming lymphoid cells and producing a rapidly progressing lymphoid leukemia after superinfection with FRIEND MURINE LEUKEMIA VIRUS; MOLONEY MURINE LEUKEMIA VIRUS; or RAUSCHER VIRUS.
A strain of Murine leukemia virus (LEUKEMIA VIRUS, MURINE) producing leukemia of the reticulum-cell type with massive infiltration of liver, spleen, and bone marrow. It infects DBA/2 and Swiss mice.
A strain of Murine leukemia virus (LEUKEMIA VIRUS, MURINE) arising during the propagation of S37 mouse sarcoma, and causing lymphoid leukemia in mice. It also infects rats and newborn hamsters. It is apparently transmitted to embryos in utero and to newborns through mother's milk.
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.

Cancer can occur in any of the tissues or organs in the head and neck. There are over 30 different places that cancer can develop in the head and neck area. Mouth cancers (oral cancers) - Mouth cancer can develop on the lip, the tongue, the floor...
Cancer is not just one disease but many diseases. There are more than 100 different types of cancer. Most cancers are named for the organ or type of cell in which they start - for example, cancer that begins in the colon is called colon cancer; cancer th...
