To determine the maximum tolerated dose and schedule of decitabine when administered as maintenance therapy after allogeneic hematopoietic stem cell transplantation (alloHSCT) performed for AML or high-risk MDS.
- To determine the safety and tolerability of decitabine as maintenance therapy after alloHSCT.
- To determine the rates disease relapse, 1-year disease-free survival, and overall survival.

The goal of this clinical research study is to compare how well 2 different dosing schedules of decitabine may help control AML. Decitabine is designed to damage the DNA (the genetic mate...
The purpose of this study is to compare the results in older patients who have newly diagnosed or secondary acute myeloid leukemia (AML) and who are to either receive decitabine or patient...
This phase I trial studies the side effects and best dose of AR-42 when given together with decitabine in treating patients with acute myeloid leukemia. AR-42 may stop the growth of cancer...
In this open-label, prospective clinical trial, the investigators enrolled acute myeloid leukemia (AML) patients after consolidation therapy. Patients with minimal residual disease (MRD) r...
This pilot clinical trial studies potential genetic markers which might be used to predict which patients with acute myeloid leukemia or myelodysplastic syndromes respond to decitabine. Th...
Decitabine is widely used in the treatment of acute myeloid leukemia (AML) in elderly patients. Low-dose Vitamin C has also been indicated to induce DNA demethylation at the cellular level. However, l...
Nowadays, the regular recommended dose of decitabine for the treatment of myelodysplastic syndrome (MDS) is 20 mg/m2/day for 5 consecutive days with a relatively high incidence of treatment-related mo...
The current therapy for elderly patients with high-risk myelodysplastic syndromes (MDSs) remains unsatisfactory. Decitabine, which has been approved to treat MDS, cannot eliminate malignant clones of ...
Acute myeloid leukemia (AML) associated with Down syndrome (DS-AML) is a unique entity of AML with superior treatment response and overall survival compared with children with non-DS-AML. Despite good...
Myelodysplastic syndromes (MDS) encompass a diverse group of hematologic disorders characterized by ineffective and malignant hematopoiesis, peripheral cytopenias and significantly increased risk of p...
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.
Organ transplantation is the moving of an organ from one body to another or from a donor site to another location on the patient's own body, for the purpose of replacing the recipient's damaged or absent organ. The emerging field of regenerative ...
Bioinformatics is the application of computer software and hardware to the management of biological data to create useful information. Computers are used to gather, store, analyze and integrate biological and genetic information which can then be applied...
