|de Novo Myelodysplastic Syndromes Previously Treated Myelodysplastic Syndromes Secondary Myelodysplastic Syndromes||Drug: azacitidine Biological: etanercept||Phase 1 Phase 2|
|Study Design:||Intervention Model: Single Group Assignment
Masking: None (Open Label)
Primary Purpose: Treatment
|Official Title:||Therapy of Myelodysplastic Syndrome (MDS) With Azacitidine Given in Combination With Etanercept: A Phase I/II Study.|
- Frequency of Hematologic Responses, as Defined by International Working Group (IWG) Criteria [ Time Frame: Up to 2 years ]Count of participants with a hematologic improvement (erythroid, platelet, or neutrophil response), assessed at 3 months.
|Study Start Date:||April 2005|
|Primary Completion Date:||October 2008 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)|
Experimental: Treatment (chemotherapy, chemoprotection)
Patients receive etanercept SC twice weekly during weeks 1 and 2 and azacitidine SC or IV over 10-40 minutes on days 1-7. Treatment repeats every 28 days for at least 3 courses. Treatment continues in the absence of disease progression or unacceptable toxicity.
Given SC or IV
Other Names:Biological: etanercept
I. Determine the frequency of hematologic responses in patients with MDS to 5-aza (azacitidine) plus etanercept.
II. Determine the efficacy of 5-aza combined with etanercept in patients with low or intermediate (int)-1 risk who fail to respond to anti-thymocyte globulin (ATG) plus etanercept and for the purpose of this trial are considered as having progressive or "more advanced" disease.
III. Correlate results of ex vivo/in vitro studies on phenotypic, cytogenetic and functional disease characteristics with in vivo treatment responses, to identify parameters that are associated with a high probability of response.
Patients receive etanercept subcutaneously (SC) twice weekly during weeks 1 and 2 and azacitidine SC or intravenously (IV) over 10-40 minutes on days 1-7. Treatment repeats every 28 days for at least 3 courses. Treatment continues in the absence of disease progression or unacceptable toxicity.
