Brief Summary:
Infections are a major life-threatening complication in patients with myelodysplastic syndrome (MDS) or acute myeloid leukaemia (AML). Currently there is no guidelines about antibacterial prophylaxis to prevent infections in patients with myelodysplastic syndrome or acute myeloid leukaemia. The investigators will conduct a randomized prospective study to evaluate the benefit of prophylactic antibacterial by levofloxacin on febrile episode in Azacytidine treated patients (MDS and AML).

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Myelodysplastic Syndromes Acute Myeloid Leukemia Drug: Levofloxacin Phase 3

Detailed Description:

This is a randomized prospective study with 2 arms to evaluate the efficacy of Levofloxacin prophylaxis in Azacytidine treated patients (MDS and AML) Levofloxacin will be given 500mg/d p.o. for the first three cycles of Azacytidine in patients randomized in arm antibacterial prophylaxis. In control arm patients will not received levofloxacin.

The expected duration of subject participation is one year after randomization.

  6. carbapenem and glycopeptide consumption in both two arms [ Time Frame: 3 years ]
    consumption of carbapenem and glycopeptide during inclusion period and comparison with the 3 previous years

  7. death causes [ Time Frame: one year ]
    index of death causes in each arms

  8. toxicity profile (adverse event) [ Time Frame: one year ]
    toxicity will be established with description of adverse event in both two arms
