This VIDAZA® Patient Registry is set up to collect real-world experience in the management of patients with myelodysplastic syndromes (MDS), Chronic Myelomonocytic Leukemia (CMML) or elderly patients with Acute myeloid leukemia (AML) ineligible for high dose chemotherapy, treated with VIDAZA® ® (azacitidine) in Austria. This registry will collect data in a retrospective as well as in a prospective manner at various sites in Austria. The aim is to gain valuable insights on both efficacy and toxicity of this drug in a routine clinical setting in patients with various comorbidities.

Condition Intervention
Chronic Myelomonocytic Leukemia
Myelodysplastic Syndromes
Acute Myeloid Leukemia
Other: non interventional

Further study details as provided by Arbeitsgemeinschaft medikamentoese Tumortherapie:

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Response evaluation [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    hematological response, marrow response, cytogenetic response (if data is available), quantification of reduced need for transfusions, median response duration

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Documentation of adverse events and toxicities
  • Number of treatment cycles
    inckusive days of treatment and dosage of azacitidine

  • Number and reasons of dose reductions
  • Uni/multivariate analysis of various factors known or thought to influence overall survival in order to establish prognostic markers
  • Establishment of a prognostic score specific for patients treated with azacitidine

Biospecimen Retention:   Samples With DNA

Biospecimen are collected prospectively on d1 of each cycle and in some cases also between the azacitidine cycles, after written informed consent has been provided. The aim is to establish a biobank of patient samples from patients treated with azacitidine, in order to have a meeningfull set of samples for future analysis of methylationstatus or mutationstatus of relevant genes, as well as to study potential changes in certain cellular subsets during and after treatment with azacitidine.
