Myelodysplastic Syndrome clinical trials at UC Davis
5 research studies open to eligible people

  • A Study of Experimental Combination Treatment Versus Azacitidine For Acute Myeloid Leukemia or Myelodysplastic Syndrome

    open to eligible people ages 60 years and up

    This randomized phase II/III trial studies how well azacitidine with or without nivolumab or midostaurin, or decitabine and cytarabine alone work in treating older patients with newly diagnosed acute myeloid leukemia or high-risk myelodysplastic syndrome. Drugs used in chemotherapy, such as azacitidine, decitabine, and cytarabine, work in different ways to stop the growth of cancer cells, either by killing the cells, by stopping them from dividing, or by stopping them from spreading. Immunotherapy with monoclonal antibodies, such as nivolumab, may help the body's immune system attack the cancer, and may interfere with the ability of tumor cells to grow and spread. Midostaurin may stop the growth of cancer cells by blocking some of the enzymes needed for cell growth. Giving azacitidine with or without nivolumab or midostaurin, or decitabine and cytarabine alone may kill more cancer cells.

  • A Study of Experimental FT-2102 in Patients With Acute Myeloid Leukemia or Myelodysplastic Syndrome (types of blood system cancer)

    “This study will evaluate the safety, efficacy, PK, and PD of FT-2102 as a single agent or in combination with azacitidine or cytarabine.”

    open to eligible people ages 18 years and up

    This Phase 1/2 study will evaluate the safety, efficacy, PK, and PD of FT-2102 as a single agent or in combination with azacitidine or cytarabine. The Phase 1 stage of the study is split into 2 distinct parts: a dose escalation part, which will utilize an open-label design of FT-2102 (single agent) and FT-2102 + azacitidine (combination agent) administered via one or more intermittent dosing schedules followed by a dose expansion part. The dose expansion part will enroll patients in up to 5 expansion cohorts, exploring single-agent FT-2102 activity as well as combination activity with azacitidine or cytarabine. Following the completion of the relevant Phase 1 cohorts, Phase 2 will begin enrollment. Patients will be enrolled across 8 different cohorts, examining the effect of FT-2102 (as a single agent) and FT-2102 + azacitidine (combination) on various AML/MDS disease states.

  • A Study of Experimental Treatment With Ibrutinib and Lenalidomide in Patients With Myelodysplastic Syndrome

    “This is a study of combined medication treatment for patients with Myelodysplastic Syndrome.”

    open to eligible people ages 18 years and up

    This phase I trial studies the side effects and best dose of ibrutinib when giving together with lenalidomide in treating patients with myelodysplastic syndrome. Ibrutinib may stop the growth of cancer cells by blocking some of the enzymes needed for cell growth. Drugs used in chemotherapy, such as lenalidomide, work in different ways to stop the growth of cancer cells, either by killing the cells, by stopping them from dividing, or by stopping them from spreading. Giving ibrutinib and lenalidomide may work better in treating patients with myelodysplastic syndrome.

  • A Study of Experimental Treatment with OrcaGraft for Allogeneic (donor) Transplant in Hematologic Malignancies (blood cancers)

    open to eligible people ages 18-65

    This study will evaluate the safety, tolerability, and efficacy of engineered donor grafts ("OrcaGraft") in participants undergoing myeloablative allogeneic hematopoietic cell transplant transplantation for hematologic malignancies.

  • Response-Based Chemotherapy to treat newly diagnosed Acute Myeloid Leukemia /Myelodysplastic Syndrome patients with Down syndrome

    “Response-based chemotherapy separates patients into different risk groups according to how they respond to the first course of treatment”

    open to eligible people ages up to 3 years

    This phase III trial studies response-based chemotherapy in treating newly diagnosed acute myeloid leukemia or myelodysplastic syndrome in younger patients with Down syndrome. Drugs used in chemotherapy work in different ways to stop the growth of cancer cells, either by killing the cells, by stopping them from dividing, or by stopping them from spreading. Response-based chemotherapy separates patients into different risk groups and treats them according to how they respond to the first course of treatment (Induction I). Response-based treatment may be effective in treating acute myeloid leukemia or myelodysplastic syndrome in younger patients with Down syndrome while reducing the side effects.
