We are evaluating the efficacy of the association of Low dose Cytarabine in association with Bortezomib in the treatment of patients diagnosed with high risk Myelodysplastic syndromes. Our aim is to decrease transfusion requirements and if possible induce a complete or at least a partial remission.

Estimated Enrollment: 39
Study Start Date: June 2006
Estimated Study Completion Date: June 2006
Detailed Description:

Four cycles of treatment are proposed at 28 day intervals in an ambulatory setting

Cycle 1 :

  • Cytarabine 10 mg /m2/day subcutaneous injection for 14 days
  • Bortézomib 1,5mg/m2 days 1,4,8,11

Cycles 2, 3, 4 :

  • Cytarabine 20 mg /m2/j subcutaneous injections for 14 days
  • Bortézomib 1,5mg/m2 days 1,4,8,11

Bone marrow aspirates are evaluated just before the first cycle, after the second and after the fourth cycles

Responding patients may continue the treatment for 2 further cycles
