First Posted : March 4, 2015
Last Update Posted : July 29, 2022
The goal of this research study is to test a quality-of-life questionnaire called QUALMS-1 in patients with MDS.
This is an investigational study.
Up to 240 participants will be enrolled in this multicenter study. Up to 175 will take part at MD Anderson.
|Condition or disease||Intervention/treatment|
|Leukemia||Behavioral: QUALMS-1 Questionnaire Behavioral: FACT-An Questionnaire|
If you agree to take part in this study, you will be asked to complete questionnaires twice during your participation in the 2014-0112 study.
During your first treatment visit, you will be asked to complete the QUALMS-1 questionnaire and another questionnaire that asks about your well-being.
After your 4th cycle of treatment or when you stop receiving treatment, you will be asked to complete the QUALMS-1 questionnaire again and another questionnaire to rate any changes in your health since you started the study.
It should take about 20 minutes total to complete the questionnaires each time.
Information will also be collected from your medical record. This information will include the results of lab tests and other information relating to your health.
Length of Study Participation:
After you complete the questionnaires the second time, your participation in this study will be complete.

Quality of Life in Myelodysplasia Scale (QUALMS-1)
Participants complete the Quality of Life in Myelodysplasia Scale (QUALMS-1) and the Anemia Subset of FACT (FACT-An), instrument twice: at the start of treatment, and after four cycles or discontinuation of treatment, whichever comes first.
Behavioral: QUALMS-1 Questionnaire
Participants complete the QUALMS-1 during first treatment visit, and after 4th cycle of treatment or when treatment stops.
Other Name: Survey
Behavioral: FACT-An Questionnaire
Participants complete the FACT-An during first treatment visit, and after 4th cycle of treatment or when treatment stops.
Other Name: Survey
- Change in Quality of Life (QOL) [ Time Frame: 4 months ]Participants rate any change in their quality of life since enrollment using a 7-point Likert-type change rating scale, ranging from much better, to no change, to much worse. This change rating scale used to characterize the QUALMS-1's reliability compared to its first administration as well as its responsiveness.
