Brief Summary:

Constitutional mutations of genes involved in telomere repair and maintenance are responsible for "telomeropathy" (" Congenital Dyskeratosis "). Attrition of telomeres promotes cell senescence and genetic instability. The penetrance and severity of organ damage (pulmonary, hematological, liver, and neurological) is variable, depending on the gene involved, the generation concerned (anticipation phenomenon) and also environmental factors.

In cases of bone marrow failure, the only curative treatment is hematopoietic stem cell transplant, often limited by pulmonary and / or hepatic involvement or the absence of a suitable HLA match donor. The pulmonary phenotype is most often that of idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis. In severe forms, a lung transplant is proposed in the absence of contraindications. Anti-fibrotic treatments are not very effective or not evaluated. The observed decrease in the vital capacity of these patients is 300 ml / year, abnormally high compared to idiopathic forms. Evolution without transplant is in both situations rapidly unfavorable; the prognosis after lung or marrow transplant is also worse than that of similar transplants without telomeres disease.

Danazol has been used for over 4 decades in acquired and constitutional bone marrow failure in the absence of a therapeutic alternative. In telomeropathy, retrospective data on small cohorts indicate a haematological response rate of 60-70%. A prospective study in the United States recently showed a haematological response at 1 year in 78% of cases (10 of 12 evaluable patients) with stabilization of vital capacity. Retrospective data (unpublished) on patients treated in France have shown more side effects and more frequent treatment interruptions and eventually weaker haematological response rate. This study aim to evaluate the benefit of danazol at 12 months on the clinical response.
