Basic Information

Recruitment status Complete
Health condition(s) or Problem(s) studiedmyelodysplastic syndrome
Date of first enrollment31/08/2016
Target sample size100
Countries of recruitmentJapan
Study typeInterventional
Intervention(s)The peripheral blood of patients is collected before administration of darbepoetin alfa, and DNA is extracted. The presence of gene mutations is then analyzed, mainly on highly frequent gene mutations (e.g. SF3B1, TET2, SFRS2, ASXL1, DNMT3A, RUNX1, U2AF1) on the panel of 104 genes in a previous report (Ogawa S, et al. Leukemia 2014) using next-generation sequencing method. Darbepoetin alfa at a dose of 240 microgram per body is administered every 7 days for 16 times in total. Effect of darbepoetin alfa is observed up to 16 weeks and it is statistically analyzed whether the presence of specific gene mutation affects the effectiveness or not.

Outcome(s)

Primary OutcomeCorrelation between highly frequent gene mutations and hematological improvement according to IWG criteria 2006 (HI-E) to darbepoetin alfa until 16 weeks after the initiaion of treatment.
Secondary Outcome1. Minor response to darbepoetin alfa until 16 weeks after the initiation of treatment in blood transfusion dependent patients. 2. Major response to darbepoetin alfa until 16 weeks after the initiation of treatment in blood transfusion dependent patients. 3. Hematological improvement according to IWG criteria 2003 (HI-E) by darbepoetin alfa until 16 weeks after the initiation of treatment in blood transfusion independent patients. 4. Variety and frequency of gene mutations observed in all subjects. 5. Correlation between decreased cell lineages (erythrocytes, leukocytes, platelets) and types of gene mutations. 6. Analysis on mortality and progression to AML from 16 weeks to 1 year after the initiaion of treatment. 7. Correlation between highly frequent gene mutations and interval to achievement of the first hematological improvement according to IWG criteria 2006 (HI-E) after the initiaion of treatment.
