A Study of Oral Clofarabine in Adult Patients With Myelodysplastic Syndromes (MDS)

This study will be used to determine the maximum tolerated dose of oral clofarabine when administered daily for 14 consecutive days repeated every 21 days.

Decitabine and Clofarabine in Higher Risk Myelodysplastic Syndromes (MDS)

The goal of this clinical research study is to learn if sequential administration of decitabine and clofarabine can help to control myelodysplastic syndrome (MDS) better than decitabine al...

Clofarabine, Cytarabine, and Thymoglobulin for Allogeneic Transplantation

This study will test the combination of clofarabine, cytarabine, and thymoglobulin as a non-myeloablative conditioning regimen for patients with myelodysplastic syndromes or acute myeloid ...

Oral Clofarabine Study in Patients With Myelodysplastic Syndrome

The goal of this clinical research study is to learn if clofarabine given by mouth on a weekly schedule can help to control Myelodysplastic Syndrome (MDS). The safety of clofarabine given...

Evaluation of bone marrow microenvironment could change how myelodysplastic syndromes are diagnosed and treated.

Myelodysplastic syndromes are a heterogeneous group of clonal hematopoietic disorders. However, the therapies used against the hematopoietic stem cells clones have limited efficacy; they slow the evol...

Disordered Immune Regulation and its Therapeutic Targeting in Myelodysplastic Syndromes.

Immune dysregulation is a defining feature of myelodysplastic syndromes (MDS). Recently, several studies have further defined the complex role of immune alterations within MDS. Herein, we will summari...

Myelodysplastic Syndromes: Laboratory Workup in the Context of New Concepts and Classification Criteria.

This review provides a comprehensive update of myelodysplastic syndromes (MDS) and their diagnostic criteria, with emphasis on novel concepts and state-of-the-art laboratory workup, including multipar...

Inflammatory disorders associated with trisomy 8-myelodysplastic syndromes: French retrospective case-control study.

We report cases of myelodysplastic syndrome/myeloproliferative neoplasms (MDS/MPN) with trisomy 8 associated with inflammatory and autoimmune diseases (IADs).

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

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.

Conditions resulting from abnormalities in the arteries branching from the ASCENDING AORTA, the curved portion of the aorta. These syndromes are results of occlusion or abnormal blood flow to the head-neck or arm region leading to neurological defects and weakness in an arm. These syndromes are associated with vascular malformations; ATHEROSCLEROSIS; TRAUMA; and blood clots.
