Active Myeloid Target Compound Decitabine and Cedazuridine in Combination with Itacitinib for the Treatment of Myelodysplastic/Myeloproliferative Neoplasm (MDS/MPN) Overlap Syndromes, ABNL-MARRO Study
Multiple Cancer Types
This phase I/II trial tests the safety, side effects, and best dose of decitabine and cedazuridine (ASTX727) in combination with itacitinib and how well they work in treating patients with myelodysplastic/ myeloproliferative neoplasm. Cedazuridine is in a class of medications called cytidine deaminase inhibitors. It prevents the breakdown of decitabine, making it more available in the body so that decitabine will have a greater effect. Decitabine is in a class of medications called hypomethylation agents. It works by helping the bone marrow produce normal blood cells and by killing abnormal cells in the bone marrow. Itacitinib may stop the growth of cancer cells by blocking some of the enzymes needed for cell growth. Giving decitabine and cedazuridine in combination with itacitinib may work better in treating patients with myelodysplastic/myeloproliferative neoplasm.
