Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Percentage of participants without any red blood cell (RBC) transfusion during any consecutive 8 week period [ Time Frame: During study (approximately 2 years) ]

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Number of Participants with Adverse Events (AEs) [ Time Frame: During study (approximately 2 years) ]
  • Percentage of participants without any red blood cell (RBC) transfusion during any consecutive 24 week period [ Time Frame: During study (approximately 2 years) ]
  • Time to the 8-week RBC transfusion independence (TI) [ Time Frame: During study (approximately 2 years) ]
  • Duration of RBC TI [ Time Frame: During study (approximately 2 years) ]
  • Percentage of Participants with hematologic improvement [ Time Frame: During study (approximately 2 years) ]
  • Percentage of Participants with Complete remission (CR) or Partial remission (PR) as Per International Working Group (IWG) Response Criteria 2006 [ Time Frame: During study (approximately 2 years) ]
  • Overall survival [ Time Frame: During study (approximately 2 years) ]
  • Progression Free Survival (PFS) [ Time Frame: During study (approximately 2 years) ]
    Progression free survival will be assessed as the time interval from study Day 1 to the first date of disease progression or death from any cause, whichever occurs first. As per IWG criteria disease progression is defined as: at least one of the following: at least 50 percent (%) decrement from maximum response levels in granulocytes or platelets; reduction in hemoglobin by greater than or equal to (>=) 1.5 gram per deciliter (g/dL); transfusion dependence.

  • Time to Progression to Acute Myeloid Leukemia [ Time Frame: During study (approximately 2 years) ]
  • Percentage of Participants with Transfusion [ Time Frame: During study (approximately 2 years) ]
  • Amount of Transfusions [ Time Frame: During study (approximately 2 years) ]
  • Percentage of Participants receiving any myeloid growth factors [ Time Frame: During study (approximately 2 years) ]
  • Maximum Observed Plasma Concentration (Cmax) [ Time Frame: During study (approximately 2 years) ]
  • Area under the drug concentration-plasma time curve from time zero to last measurable concentration (AUC0-t) [ Time Frame: During study (approximately 2 years) ]
  • Percentage of Participants with antibodies to imetelstat [ Time Frame: During study (approximately 2 years) ]
  • Medical Resource Utilization Data in Part 2 [ Time Frame: During study (approximately 2 years) ]
  • Assessment of Functional Assessment of Cancer Therapy- Anemia-Related Effects (FACT-An) in Part 2 [ Time Frame: During study (approximately 2 years) ]
    The Functional Assessment of Cancer Therapy Anemia (FACT-An), is included in order to provide an assessment of the subject's functional status, well-being, and symptoms over time.

  • Assessment of EuroQol 5 Dimension Questionnaire (EQ-5D-5L) in Part 2 [ Time Frame: During study (approximately 2 years) ]
    The EQ-5D-5L is a generic measure of health status. EQ-5D-5L is a 5 item questionnaire that assesses 5 domains including mobility, self-care, usual activities, pain/discomfort and anxiety/depression plus a visual analog scale rating "health today" with anchors ranging from 0 (worst imaginable health state) to 100 (best imaginable health state).

  • Assessment of Quality of Life in Myelodysplasia Scale (QUALMS) in Part 2 [ Time Frame: During study (approximately 2 years) ]
    The QUALMS is a 38-item measure that assesses health-related quality of life for patients with MDS. Thirty-three items are used to calculate the total score, as well as the 14 item physical burden (QUALMS-P), 3-item benefit-finding (QUALMS-BF), and 11-item emotional burden (QUALMS-E) subscales.

  • Assessment of Participant Global Impression of Change (PGIC) in Part 2 [ Time Frame: During study (approximately 2 years) ]
    The Participant Global Impression of Change (PGIC) is a single-item questionnaire designed to provide an overall assessment of treatment from the participant's perspective since the start of the study. It is measured on a 7-point scale, where 1=very much improved and 7=very much worse. A participant is considered a responder if they have a response of "very much improved" or "much improved".

  • Change From Baseline in QTc Interval at Day 1 of Part 2 [ Time Frame: Baseline and Day 1 ]
    Change from baseline in QTc interval by Fridericia's correction method (ΔQTcF) will be assessed in part 2.

Detailed Description:
This is a Phase 2/3, multicenter study of imetelstat that consists of 2 parts. Part 1 is an open‐label, single-arm design to assess the efficacy and safety of imetelstat. Approximately 55 participants will be enrolled in Part 1, including the expansion cohort, and be followed-up for safety, hematologic improvement and reduction in transfusion requirement. Part 2 of the study will be initiated if data from Part 1 are supportive of a satisfactory benefit/risk profile. Part 2 is a double‐blind, randomized design to compare the efficacy of imetelstat with placebo. Approximately 170 eligible participants will be randomized in a 2:1 ratio to receive either imetelstat or placebo, respectively. Each part of the study will consist of 3 phases: a Screening phase (up to 28 days); a treatment phase; and a post-treatment follow-up phase which will continue until death, lost to follow-up, withdrawal of consent, or the End of the Study (whichever occurs first). The End of the Study is defined as 2 years after the study entry of the last participant or anytime the sponsor terminates the study, whichever comes first.
