The goal of this clinical research study is to learn if lenalidomide and darbepoetin alfa given together will help to control the need for transfusions in patients with low to intermediate risk Myelodysplastic Syndrome (MDS). The safety of this combination will also be studied.
Drug: Darbepoetin alfa
Endpoint Classification: Safety/Efficacy Study
Intervention Model: Single Group Assignment
Masking: Open Label
Primary Purpose: Treatment
||Phase II Study of Lenalidomide and Darbepoetin Alfa in Myelodysplastic Syndrome (Low to Intermediate-1 Risk Category Excluding 5q Deletion)
Primary Outcome Measures:
| Study Start Date:
| Study Completion Date:
| Primary Completion Date:
||July 2010 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Experimental: Lenalidomide + Darbepoetin alfa
Lenalidomide 10 mg/day orally days 1-21 and Darbepoetin alfa 200 mcg subcutaneously every 2 weeks of 28 day cycle
10 mg/day by mouth on days 1-21 of every 28 day cycle.
Drug: Darbepoetin alfa
200 mcg subcutaneously every 2 weeks of a 28 cycle.
- Erythropoiesis Stimulating Protein
|Ages Eligible for Study:
||18 Years and older
|Genders Eligible for Study:
|Accepts Healthy Volunteers:
- Understand and voluntarily sign an informed consent form.
- Age >/=18 years at the time of signing the informed consent form.
- Able to adhere to the study visit schedule and other protocol requirements.
- Have low or intermediate-1 IPSS risk category MDS (excluding 5q deletion)
- red blood cell (RBC) transfusion-dependent anemia defined as no transfusion free interval of >/= 56 consecutive days within the past 112 days.
- Eastern Cooperative Oncology Group (ECOG) performance status of 0-2 at study entry.
- Laboratory test results within these ranges: Serum creatinine </= 1.5 mg/dL ,Total bilirubin </= 1.5 mg/dL ,AST (SGOT) and ALT (SGPT) </= 3 x ULN, ANC >/= 500 /uL, Platelet count >/= 30,000/uL (untransfused)
- Disease free of prior malignancies for >/=2 years with exception of currently treated basal cell, squamous cell carcinoma of the skin, or carcinoma "insitu" of the cervix or breast
- Patients who are on epoetin alfa or darbepoetin prior to enrollment will be allowed to enroll if they have failed such therapy, failure defined as transfusion requiring despite >/= 6 weeks of epoetin alfa at dose of 40,000 units/week and darbepoetin alfa at dose of 150 mcg/ 2 week. No washout period will be necessary. Upon study entry patients receiving epoetin alfa will be switched over to darbepoetin.
- Females of childbearing potential (FCBP) must have a negative serum or urine pregnancy test with a sensitivity of at least 50 mIU/mL within 10-14 days prior to and again within 24 hours of prescribing lenalidomide and must either commit to continued abstinence from heterosexual intercourse or begin TWO acceptable methods of birth control, one highly effective method and one additional effective method AT THE SAME TIME, at least 4 weeks before she starts taking lenalidomide. FCBP must also agree to ongoing pregnancy testing.
- continued from #10 Men must agree to use a latex condom during sexual contact with a female of child bearing potential even if they have had a successful vasectomy.
- Clinically significant anemia owing to iron, B12, or folate deficiencies.
- Any serious medical condition, laboratory abnormality, or psychiatric illness that would prevent the subject from signing the informed consent form.
- Pregnant or breast feeding females. (Lactating females must agree not to breast feed while taking lenalidomide)
- Concomitant use of steroids will not be allowed unless used for premedication in preparation for transfusions, treatment of hypersensitivity reaction related to lenalidomide or any underlying medical condition other than MDS (e.g. Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD)).
- Any condition, including the presence of laboratory abnormalities, which places the subject at unacceptable risk if he/she were to participate in the study or confounds the ability to interpret data from the study.
- Use of any other experimental drug or therapy within 28 days of baseline.
- Known hypersensitivity to thalidomide.
- The development of erythema nodosum if characterized by a desquamating rash while taking thalidomide or similar drugs.
- Any prior use of lenalidomide.
- Concurrent use of other anti-cancer agents or treatments.
- Known positive for HIV or infectious hepatitis, type A, B or C.
- Hypersensitivity to darbepoetin or any component of the formulation (including polysorbate 80 and/or albumin);
- Uncontrolled hypertension
