Primary Outcome Measures:

    IWG response criteria (2000) - CR: bone marrow evaluations show < 5% blasts; no dysplasia; normal maturation of all cell lines and peripheral blood shows hemoglobin ≥ 11 g/dL; neutrophils ≥ 1,500/mL; platelets ≥ 100,000/mL; 0% blasts; no dysplasia and PR: same as CR, except blasts decrease by ≥ 50% or lower French-American-British (FAB) classification of Myelodysplastic Syndromes.

  • Phase I and II: Number of Participants Who Experienced Adverse Events [ Time Frame: Up to 1.5 years after the last participant enrolled ]

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Phase I: Maximum Observed Plasma Concentration of Decitabine (Cmax) [ Time Frame: Before dosing (Pre-dose), 30 min, 60 min (end of infusion), 65 min, 75 min, 90 min, 120 min, 180 min, 240 min after the start of decitabine infusion on Day 1 and Day 5 of 28-Days Cycle 1 ]
  • Phase I: Area Under the Plasma Concentration-time Curve (AUC) [ Time Frame: Before dosing (Pre-dose), 30 min, 60 min (end of infusion), 65 min, 75 min, 90 min, 120 min, 180 min, 240 min after the start of decitabine infusion on Day 1 and Day 5 of 28-Days Cycle 1 ]

    IWG response criteria (2000) - CR: bone marrow evaluations (mCR) show < 5% blasts; no dysplasia; normal maturation of all cell lines and peripheral blood shows hemoglobin ≥ 11 g/dL; neutrophils ≥ 1,500/mL; platelets ≥ 100,000/mL; 0% blasts; no dysplasia; PR: same as CR, except blasts decrease by ≥ 50% or lower French-American-British (FAB) classification of Myelodysplastic Syndromes; HI: hemoglobin < 11 g/dL (erythroid); platelet < 100,000/mL; neutrophils < 1,000/mL.

  • Phase II: Median Time to Remission [ Time Frame: Up to 1.5 years after the last participant enrolled ]
    Median time required for the participants to achieve remission (complete remission+partial remission).

  • Phase II: Median Time to Improvement [ Time Frame: Up to 1.5 years after the last participant enrolled ]
    Median time required for the participants to achieve overall improvement (complete remission+partial remission+hematologic improvement)

  • Phase II: Median Duration of Remission [ Time Frame: Up to 1.5 years after the last participant enrolled ]
    Median time duration for which participants achieved remission (complete remission+partial remission).

  • Phase II: Median Duration of Overall Improvement [ Time Frame: Up to 1.5 years after the last participant enrolled ]
    Median time duration for which participants achieved overall improvement (complete remission+partial remission+hematologic improvement).

  • Phase II: Overall Improvement Rate: Number of Participants Who Achieved Complete Response (CR)+Partial Response (PR)+Hematological Improvement (HI) - as Per International Working Group (IWG) Response Criteria (2000) [ Time Frame: Up to 1.5 years after the last participant enrolled ]
    IWG response criteria (2000) - CR: bone marrow evaluations (mCR) show < 5% blasts; no dysplasia; normal maturation of all cell lines and peripheral blood shows hemoglobin ≥ 11 g/dL; neutrophils ≥ 1,500/mL; platelets ≥ 100,000/mL; 0% blasts; no dysplasia and PR: same as CR, except blasts decrease by ≥ 50% or lower French-American-British (FAB) classification of Myelodysplastic Syndromes. HI: hemoglobin < 11 g/dL (erythroid); platelet < 100,000/mL; neutrophils < 1,000/mL.

  • Phase II: Number of Participants With Cytogenic Response - as Per International Working Group (IWG) Response Criteria 2000 (Major/Minor) and IWG 2006 (Complete/Partial) [ Time Frame: Up to 1.5 years after the last participant enrolled ]
    IWG 2000 - Major: disappearance of cytogenetic abnormality; Minor: 50% or more reduction in abnormal metaphases. IWG 2006 - Complete: disappearance of the chromosomal abnormality without appearance of new ones; Partial: At least 50% reduction of the chromosomal abnormality.

Detailed Description:
This is an open-label (both physician and patient know the name and dosage of drug), multi-center study. This study consists of two parts, Phase I and Phase II. In Phase I, approximately 9 participants will be enrolled ie, 3 participants for dose level 1 (15 mg/m2 of JNJ-30979754) and 6 participants for dose level 2 (20 mg/m2 of JNJ-30979754). Once the tolerability of 20 mg/m2 is confirmed additional 30 participants will be included to receive 20 mg/m2 and approximate total participants in Phase II will be 36. This study will include screening period (within 14 days prior to the day of initial administration of Cycle 1) and dosing period (1 cycle consists of administration of study medication for first 5 consecutive days + rested for 23 days; ie, total 28 days). Cycles will be reapeated in participants in whom decitabine was expected to be effective. Safety evaluations will include assessment of adverse events, vital signs, body weight, clinical laboratory tests: hematology, blood biochemistry and urinalysis, cardiopulmonary function tests: ECG, chest X ray and oximeter analysis.
