  • DFS rates in RA/RAS/5q-, RCMD, RAEB-I/RAEB-II and acute myelocytic leukemia (AML) subgroups were 84.6%, 80.0%, 81.0%, 56.2%, respectively (P > 0.05).
  • DFS rates for percentages of blasts in bone marrow pre-transplant were 87.0%, 65.5%, 75.0% in < 5% blasts, 5% - 20% blasts, > 20% blasts subgroups, respectively (P > 0.05).
  • CONCLUSIONS: Since favorable clinical outcomes have been seen in all kinds of MDS by allo-HSCT, HSCT should be the first-line therapy for MDS.
  • No significant differences are found based on different stem cell donors and the percentages of bone marrow blasts pre-HSCT, unrelated or haploidentical donors should be important alternatives if there is no identical sibling available.
  • Chemotherapy before transplantation is not necessary except overt acute leukemia.

  • [Title] Alternating dose-dense chemotherapy in patients with high volume disseminated non-seminomatous germ cell tumours.
  • The aim of this phase II study was to assess the efficacy and toxicity of a dose-dense alternating chemotherapy regimen in this subset of patients.
  • Patients received a median of 2.5 courses (range 0.25 to five courses) of the BOP-CISCA-POMB-ACE regimen.
  • Forty-two patients (72.4%) had a complete response to therapy.
  • With a median follow-up time of 31 months, the 3-year progression-free survival rate was 71% (95% confidence interval, 60 to 84%) and the 3-year overall survival rate was 73% (95% confidence interval: 62 to 86%).
  • Early side effects included mainly grade 4 haematologic toxicity (neutropaenia in 79% of patients, thrombocytopaenia in 69%, anaemia in 22%), grade 4 stomatitis (19%), and four early deaths (7% of patients), at least partially related to toxicity.
  • Because outcomes with this regimen compare favourably with outcome after standard therapy, dose-dense chemotherapy should be further investigated in this subset of patients.

  • [Title] [Low dose all-trans retinoic acid and androgen therapy for patients with myelodysplastic syndrome].
  • To explore therapeutic efficacy of androgens and low dose all-trans retinoic acid (ATRA) for myelodysplastic syndrome (MDS) patients, 55 patients of MDS were observed, including 41 cases of refractory anemia (RA), 11 cases of refractory anemia with excess of blasts (RAEB), 2 cases of refractory anemia with excess of blasts in transformation (RAEB-t) and 1 case of chronic myeloic-monocytic leukemia (CMML).
  • In conclusion, danazol or stanazol in combination with low dose ATRA are partialy effective in therapy for patients with low-risk myelodysplastic syndrome.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • [Title] Cyclosporin A therapy for patients with myelodysplastic syndrome: multicenter pilot studies in Japan.
  • We examined the efficacy of cyclosporin A (CsA) in 50 patients with myelodysplastic syndrome (MDS) consisting from 47 of RA, 1 of RARS, and 2 of RAEB.
  • These patients showed various marrow cell types including hypo-, normo-, and hypercellularity.
  • The median CsA dose was 4.58mg/kg, and treatment responses were classified according to the International Working Group (IWG) criteria.
  • In the patients with RARS or RAEB, no efficacy was observed.
  • When we analyzed the correlation between the response to CsA therapy and the karyotype or HLA type, there were significantly more responders with good karyotype or DRB1*1501 than with intermediate/poor karyotypes or with other HLA types.
  • These results indicate the usefulness of CsA therapy for MDS patients with any marrow cellularity, especially for erythroid lineage and patients with good karyotype or DRB1*1501.

  • [Title] Phase II trial of CPT-11 in myelodysplastic syndromes with excess of marrow blasts.
  • We conducted a phase II trial of CPT-11 in 26 patients with high-risk MDS (RAEB 1: n = 4; RAEB 2: n = 9; MDS having progressed to AML: n = 10; CMML: n = 3) who could not receive anthracycline/cytarabine intensive chemotherapy.
  • Induction therapy consisted of four courses of CPT-11 given intravenously at 200 mg/m(2) every 2 weeks.
  • Patient characteristics were: median age, 71 (range 51-77); sex, (M/F), 21/5, median % marrow blasts cells, 13.5 (range 7-52).
  • Six patients stopped treatment after only one or two courses of CPT-11 due to severe infection (n = 2), progressive disease (n = 3), acute lysis syndrome with renal failure (n = 1).
  • Thus CPT-11 has an interesting activity in MDS with excess of blasts; toxicity is easily managed and most patients can be treated in the out-clinic setting.

  • We administered a vitamin K2 analog, menatetrenone, at 45 mg daily to 23 patients with myelodysplastic syndrome (MDS): 13 patients with RA, 2 with RARS, 6 with RAEB and 2 with RAEB-T.
  • Six of the RA patients showed improvement of anemia (GR, 3 patients; PR, 3 patients).
  • RA patients who did not have a hypocellular bone marrow and were transfusion-independent tended to be responsive to vitamin K2 therapy in combination with vitamin D3 or anabolic steroids.
  • No adverse effect of vitamin K2 was observed, and the time required to obtain the hematological response was short, being 3 months on average.
  • We believe that vitamin K2 therapy has potential as a treatment for patients with MDS.

  • [Title] Prolonged administration of erythropoietin increases erythroid response rate in myelodysplastic syndromes: a phase II trial in 281 patients.
  • Treatment with recombinant human erythropoietin (rHuEpo) improves anaemia in approximately 20% of patients with myelodysplastic syndromes (MDS).
  • We investigated the potential advantage of a prolonged administration of rHuEpo to achieve higher erythroid response rates (RR) in 281 MDS patients: 118 with refractory anaemia (RA), 77 with refractory anaemia and ringed sideroblasts (RARS), 59 with refractory anaemia with excess of blasts and blast count < 10% (RAEB-I), and 27 with RAEB and blast count between 11-20% (RAEB-II).
  • Response to treatment was evaluated after 12 and 26 weeks of therapy.
  • The overall RR was 45.1%; the RR for RA, RARS, RAEB-I and RAEB-II were 48.3%, 58.4%, 33.8% and 13% respectively.
  • A significant increase in RR was observed at week 26 in RA, RARS and RAEB-I patients, as the response probability increased with treatment duration.

  • [Title] [Retrospective observation of curative effects on MDS refractory anemia with combination of all-trans retinoic acid, 1, 25-dihydroxyvitamin D3 and androgen].
  • This study was aimed to examine whether a combination of all-trans retinoic acid (ATRA), 1, 25-dihydroxyvitamin D(3) and androgen possesses the therapeutic value for the MDS-refractory anemia (MDS-RA), and to analyze the mechanisms in detail.
  • The remaining 33 cases (group B) were provided with vitamin supplementation, chalybeate drugs, and one or two of the combination.
  • The further treatment for 16 out of 62 patients (25.81%), 13 failures (10 deaths, 2 RAEB and 1 RAEB-T) and 3 transformations (M(2), M(3), M(5)) with a median survival interval of 26.25 months, were observed and interrupted for some reasons.
  • Furthermore, the disease progression was observed in 12 out of 33 patients (36.36%) with a median survival interval of 16 months, 9 failures (including 6 deaths, 2 RAEB and 1 RAEB-T) and 3 transformations (M(2), M(3), M(4)).
  • The following requirements, if were met, would be significant for prognosis: the combination regiment, no transformation, children, no complication, female, 90-120 g/L of hemoglobin concentration, normal cellular bone marrow and uni-cytopenias (P < 0.05).
  • Moreover, Cox regression showed that therapy, transformation and age are all the independent factors (P < 0.05).
  • It is concluded that the combination of above mentioned 3 drugs may be effective and safe treatment for the patients with MDS-RA.
  • Its relevant mechanisms can be involved in the combination, that elicits a wide range of pharmacological effects, such as differentiation, anti-tumor-promotion, anti-apoptosis, anti-angiogenesis, anti-cachexia and immunoregulation.

  • [Title] Clinicopathological characteristics of erythroblast-rich RAEB and AML M6a in children.
  • The distinction between RAEB, RAEB-T and AML M6a is difficult when erythroblasts in the bone marrow (BM) exceed 50%.
  • We analyzed 19 children (2 RAEB, 13 RAEB-T and 4 AML M6a) enrolled in a prospective pathological central review in Japan and divided them into two groups according to the myeloblasts percentage among non-erythroid cells in BM: group A (n = 8), 5-19% myeloblasts; group B (n = 11), 20% or more myeloblasts.
  • Six with group A and seven with group B treated with AML type chemotherapy achieved complete remission.
  • Five with group A and seven with group B undergoing SCT are alive at a median of 3 years after diagnosis.
  • Erythroblast-rich RAEB and AML M6a in children have similar characteristics and may belong to a single disease entity.

  • [Title] Treatment of relapse after allogeneic bone marrow transplantation with reduced intensity conditioning (FLAG +/- Ida) and second allogeneic stem cell transplant.
  • Fludarabine-containing 'non-myeloablative' chemotherapy followed by further allo SCT may offer more rapid and effective disease control.
  • We report 14 patients with relapse after allo SCT for acute leukaemia [seven acute myeloid leukaemia (AML), five acute lymphoblastic leukaemia (ALL)] or refractory anaemia with excess blasts in transformation (RAEB-t, n = 2) treated with fludarabine, high-dose cytosine arabinoside (ara-C) and granulocyte colony-simulating factor (G-CSF) with (n = 10) or without (n = 2) idarubicin (FLAG +/- Ida) or DaunoXome (FLAG-X) (n = 2) and second allo SCT from the original donor.
  • Transplants were well tolerated with no treatment-related deaths.
  • The major complication was graft-versus-host disease (GvHD, acute >/= grade II-2 cases, chronic - eight cases, two limited, six extensive) although there have been no deaths attributable to this.
  • FLAG +/- Ida and second allo SCT is a safe and useful approach and may be more effective than DLI in the treatment of acute leukaemias relapsing after conventional allo SCT.

  • [Title] Treatment of anaemia in myelodysplastic syndromes with prolonged administration of recombinant human granulocyte colony-stimulating factor and erythropoietin.
  • Treatment with recombinant human erythropoietin (rhEPO) improves anaemia in approximately 20% of the patients with myelodysplastic syndromes (MDS).
  • Recent reports suggest that a combination treatment with rhEPO plus recombinant human granulocyte colony-stimulating factor (rhG-CSF) given for up to 18 weeks may result in a higher erythroid response rate than with rhEPO alone.
  • We investigated the potential advantage of an even more prolonged schedule of combined rhG-CSF and rhEPO treatment to obtain and maintain stable responses.
  • In a phase II study, 33 patients with MDS [17 with refractory anaemia (RA), eight with RA with ringed sideroblasts (RARS), eight with RA with excess blasts (RAEB) with bone marrow blast counts less than 20%] were scheduled to receive at least 36 weeks of combined therapy with rhG-CSF and rhEPO.
  • Seventeen of 28 evaluable patients demonstrated an erythroid response [61%; 95% confidence interval (CI) 41-78] after 12 weeks of treatment.
  • Seven of these responses developed between week 12 and week 36, whereas two initially responding patients became refractory.
  • The cytokine therapy was generally well tolerated.
  • After 1 year and 2 years of continuous combined treatment, 50% of the initially included patients showed a continuing response.
  • Our results suggest that a prolonged combination treatment with rhG-CSF and rhEPO is highly effective in achieving a stable and long-lasting erythroid response in many patients with MDS and low blast count.

  • [Title] Refractory anaemia with excess of blasts (RAEB): analysis of reclassification according to the WHO proposals.
  • The French-American-British (FAB) classification assigns patients with myelodysplastic syndromes to the category of refractory anaemia with excess blasts (RAEB) if they have a medullary blast count of 5-20%, and/or a peripheral blast count of 2-5%.
  • The new World Health Organization (WHO) classification subdivides RAEB into RAEB I with a medullary blast count < or =10% and a peripheral blast count < or =5% and RAEB II with >10% medullary and/or >5% peripheral blasts.
  • RAEB II is also diagnosed if Auer rods are present.
  • In 558 patients, we analysed these subtypes of RAEB in terms of haematological characteristics, karyotype anomalies and prognosis.
  • RAEB I was diagnosed in 256 and RAEB II in 302 patients.
  • In the RAEB II group, 22% of patients had >5% peripheral blasts or the presence of Auer rods.
  • The median survival was 16 months for RAEB I as compared with 9 months for RAEB II.
  • No significant differences were identified between the RAEB subtypes with respect to clinical, morphological, haematological and cytogenetic parameters.
  • The survival data support the WHO reclassification of RAEB based on peripheral and medullary blast counts and Auer rods.
  • The WHO classification is useful for diagnosis and provides risk stratification, supported by cytogenetic data for clinical decision making, identifying those RAEB patients with an unfavourable prognosis who should be offered chemotherapy or stem cell transplantation.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • METHODS: Sixty-two MDS patients, 48 with RA, 2 of RAS, 9 with RA with excess of blasts (RAEB), 2 with RAEB-transformation (RAEB-t ), and 1 with chronic myelogenous-monocytic leukemia (CMML) according to the FAB subtype standard, received stanazolol (6 mg/d) or danazol (600 mg/d) and low dose all-trans-retinoic acid (ATRA 10 mg/d).
  • Three months later the treatment was discontinued on 22 patients that showed ineffective and 2 more patients withdrew from the treatment due to exacerbation.
  • The remaining 36 patients were treated according to the original protocol, and the doses of these 2 drugs were reduced by half until the condition was exacerbated.
  • RESULTS: After 6 months of treatment, complete remission (CR) was seen in 1 patient, partial remission (PR) in 6 patients, and hematologic Improvement (HI) in 19 of the 60 patients evaluated with a response rate of 43.3% (26/60) in all patients, 50% (24/48) in RA/RAS group, and 16.7% (2/12) in RAEB/RAEB-t/CMML group.
  • There were not significant differences in cellularity, dysplastic hematopoiesis, and myeloblast before and after treatment among the RA/RAS patients.
  • After 12 months of treatment, CR was seen in 1 patient, PR in 7, and HI in 9, with a response rate of 28.3% (17/60) in all patients, 35.4% (17/48) in the RA/RAS group, and 0% (0/12) in the RAEB/RAEB-t/CMML group.
  • Adverse effects were mild and did not require discontinuance of the therapy.
  • The survival time of the 19 patients in the RA group that responded well to treatment was 54 months (41, 66), significantly longer than that of the 20 patients without good outcomes [23 months (13,32), chi2=4.72, P=0.025].
  • CONCLUSION: Effective, economic, and safe, stanozolol or danazol with low-dose all-trans-retinoic acid improves the life quality and prolongs the survival time of the MDS patients who respond well.

  • Voriconazole is a new triazole active orally and parenterally that recently proved effective in the treatment of invasive aspergillosis and in empirical antifungal therapy for persistently febrile neutropenic patients.
  • We report our experience with voriconazole in seven children with invasive aspergillosis, i.e., four girls and three boys with a median age of 5 (range 2-13) years affected by acute lymphoblastic leukemia (3), acute myeloid leukemia (2), refractory anemia with excess of blasts (1), and severe aplastic anemia (1).
  • First-line therapy in all patients was liposomal amphotericin B (AmBisome) administered at a dosage of 3-5 mg/kg day.
  • The voriconazole treatment was well tolerated.
  • Three patients are alive and well 6, 5, and 4 months after the diagnosis of aspergillosis.
  • Voriconazole appears to be an effective salvage treatment for invasive aspergillosis in pediatric patients, with good responses in patients who recover from neutropenia or are not relapsing.

  • [Title] [Curative effects of cyclosporin A therapy upon myelodysplastic syndrome].
  • OBJECTIVE: To evaluate the efficacy of cyclosporin A (CsA) in treatment of myelodysplastic syndromes (MDS).
  • METHODS: Thirty-three patients with MDS, including refractory anemia (RA, n = 24), refractory anemia with ringed sideroblasts (RAS, n = 2), and refractory anemia with excess blasts (RAEB, n = 7), 23 males and 10 females, aged 46 (6 approximately 71), hospitalized in 4 CsA, grade 3 hospitals in Beijing who failed to respond to folic acid and vitamin B12, received CsA 3 approximately 5 mg x kg(-1)x d(-1), 2 times per days, taken orally in 2 separate doses for at least 3 months (2 approximately 27 months).
  • During the course of treatment the dosage was adjusted according to the CsA blood concentration and curative effect.
  • RESULTS: After 3 months of the treatment, the hematological improvement (HI) was observed in 18 of the 32 evaluative patients (56.3%) by the criteria of the International Working Group (IWG).
  • CONCLUSION: Improving the clinical manifestations and lengthening the survival time, CsA therapy is effective in the patients with RA or RAEB, and both hypoplastic bone marrow and hyperplastic bone marrows respond to the therapy.
  • CsA therapy is potentially the most effective therapy for MDS.
