Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Number of Participants in Different Categories of Treatment Emergent Adverse Events for the Extension Period [ Time Frame: 43- 68 months ]
    Participant counts for a variety of subsets of treatment emergent adverse events (TEAEs)during the extension study period (43-68 months). Subsets include participants counts for serious TEAEs, serious TEAEs that the investigator evaluated as releated to treatment, TEAEs leading to discontinuation of therapy, or a dose reduction, or a dose interruption.


Enrollment: 40
Study Start Date: April 2007
Study Completion Date: September 2009
Primary Completion Date: September 2009 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Arms Assigned Interventions
Experimental: Azacitidine
Azacitidine (study drug) plus best supportive care.
Drug: Azacitidine
Azacitidine was injected subcutaneously (SC) for 7 days. The 7-day dosing was repeated every 28 days with dose adjustments allowed. The initial dose during the primary study was 75mg/m^2/day.
Other Name: AZA

Detailed Description:

At the conclusion of study AZA PH GL 2003 CL 001 (NCT00071799), eligible participants could be enrolled in an optional extension phase in order to continue treatment with azacitidine until it became commercially available; the continued treatment was for ethical and safety reasons only and not to provide additional efficacy data.

During the extension phase, participants were treated based on 28-day cycles and monitored for hematologic, nonhematologic, and renal toxicities. Recommended monitoring procedures included complete blood count with differential and platelets at least once each cycle prior to dosing and as needed, bone marrow biopsy and aspirate as clinically indicated, and additional tests or more frequent monitoring at the investigator's discretion based on the patient's clinical status. The azacitidine dose could be modified for toxicities. Laboratory data were not collected during the extension phase.
