  Purpose

The purpose of this study is to determine how the body absorbs decitabine when taken orally in patients with Myelodysplastic Syndrome (MDS). Safety will also be assessed for this oral dose.

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Pharmacokinetic (PK) endpoints will be decitabine PK parameters: Tmax, Cmax, AUC0-inf, t1/2 and F. [ Time Frame: Cycle 1 on Days 1 & 2 from predose up to 6 hours after administration. ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Safety evaluations will include assessments of adverse events (AEs), medical history, physical examinations, vital signs measurements, use of concomitant medications, and laboratory assessments at baseline and throughout the study period. [ Time Frame: Up to 30 days after the last dose of decitabine. ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]

Estimated Enrollment: 30
Study Start Date: September 2009
Primary Completion Date: December 2010 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Arms Assigned Interventions
Experimental: 1 Drug: decitabine
Cohort 1: 30 mg oral on Day 1 and 20 mg/m^2 1-hour IV infusion on Days 2-5 of Cycle 1.
Other Name: Dacogen
Experimental: 2 Drug: decitabine
Cohort 2: 60 mg oral on Day 1 and 20 mg/m^2 1-hour IV infusion on Days 2-5 of Cycle 1.
Other Name: Dacogen
Experimental: 3 Drug: decitabine
Cohort 3: 120 mg oral on Day 1 and 20 mg/m^2 1-hour IV infusion on Days 2-5 of Cycle 1.
Other Name: Dacogen
Experimental: 4 Drug: decitabine
Cohort 4: 240 mg oral on Day 1 and 20 mg/m^2 1-hour IV infusion on Days 2-5 of Cycle 1.
Other Name: Dacogen

Detailed Description:

Cohorts are dosed sequentially, and escalation may stop before the 5th cohort is dosed. Each cycle will be approximately 4 weeks in length. Following Cycle 1, patients may receive an additional 4 follow-up cycles of decitabine. Cycles 2-5 will include a 20 mg/m^2 1-hour IV infusion of decitabine on Days 1-5 for all cohorts.

  Eligibility

Ages Eligible for Study:   18 Years and older
Genders Eligible for Study:   Both
Accepts Healthy Volunteers:   No
Criteria

Inclusion Criteria:

  1. Histologically confirmed de novo or secondary MDS.
  2. Age ≥ 18 years.
  3. Eastern Cooperative Oncology Group (ECOG) performance status of 0, 1, or 2.
  4. Adequate renal and hepatic function (creatinine ≤ 2.0 mg/dL, total bilirubin < 2.0 mg/dL, aspartate aminotransferase [AST] or alanine aminotransferase [ALT] < 3 times the upper limit of normal).
  5. Life expectancy of at least 6 weeks.
  6. If currently receiving 5 day decitabine regimen, patient must be scheduled to receive one more cycle of 5 day decitabine.
  7. Recovered from all toxic effects of all prior therapy before entry into this study.
  8. Women of childbearing potential and all men must agree to practice a medically approved form of contraception (one of the following must be used: condoms [male or female] with a spermicidal agent, diaphragm or cervical cap with a spermicidal agent, intrauterine device, hormonal contraception, abstinence) during the course of the study and up to 2 months following the last dose of decitabine.

Exclusion Criteria:

  1. Candidates for up front high dose induction chemotherapy. MDS patients who are scheduled to receive decitabine prior to a bone marrow transplant or stem cell transplant are allowed.
  2. History of treatment failure with decitabine.
  3. Received any experimental agent within the preceding 30 days prior to screening.
  4. Uncontrolled cardiac or pulmonary disease.
  5. History of intestinal surgery, pancreatic surgery, or gastric surgery.
  6. Any clinically relevant disease, disorder (including psychiatric disorders), or condition, in the opinion of the Investigator, which may interfere with the objectives of the study, especially with the gastrointestinal (GI) absorption of the study drug, and/or with the safety of the subject in the study.
  7. Current active colitis of any etiology (Clostridium difficile colitis, ulcerative colitis, Crohn's disease, etc.) or a recent (< 2 weeks) episode of colitis.
  8. Pregnant or lactating. Female patients of childbearing potential must have had a negative serum pregnancy test at screening and a negative urine pregnancy test on Day 1 prior to dosing.
  9. Known positive serology for human immunodeficiency virus (HIV).
  10. Active viral, fungal, or bacterial infection. No patient may enter the study unless infections have been fully treated.
