Further study details as provided by Fondazione Italiana Sindromi Mielodisplastiche Onlus:

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • To assess the activity of decitabine in the treatment of CMML [ Time Frame: 24 months ]
    Activity will be evaluated as percentage of patients achieving complete or partial remission according to the International Working Group response criteria in myelodysplasia

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • to assess the activity of decitabine in the treatment of CMML in terms of overall survival, time to leukemic transormation, response duration in terms of time to relapse after CR, PR, time to disease progression, ecc [ Time Frame: 24 months ]

Estimated Enrollment: 41
Study Start Date: April 2010
Estimated Study Completion Date: June 2017
Primary Completion Date: December 2011 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Arms Assigned Interventions
Experimental: Decitabine
Eligible patients will recieve Dacogen 20mg/m2 in 1 hour iv infusion for 5 days every 28 days (1 cycle)plus Best Supportive Care.A total of 6 courses is planned.
Drug: Decitabine
Decitabine will be administered at a dose of 20 mg/m2 infused over a 1 hour period once daily for 5 consecutive days. The totale amount per course is 100 mg/m2. Cycles will be administered every 4 weeks (1 cycle of 28 days).It is recommented that patients be treated for a minimum of 4 cycles.
