test

A Randomized Phase III Trial Comparing the Frequency of Major Erythroid Response (MER) to Treatment with Lenalidomide (Revlimid) Alone and in Combination with Epoetin Alfa (Procrit) in Subjects with Low- or Intermediate-1 Risk Myelodysplastic Syndrome (MDS) and Symptomatic Anemia

Conditions

Myeloid and Monocytic Leukemia

What is the purpose of this trial?

This randomized phase III trial studies lenalidomide to see how well it works with or without epoetin alfa in treating patients with myelodysplastic syndrome and anemia. Lenalidomide may stop the growth of myelodysplastic syndrome by blocking blood flow to the cell. Colony stimulating factors, such as epoetin alfa, may increase the number of immune cells found in bone marrow or peripheral blood. It is not yet known whether lenalidomide is more effective with or without epoetin alfa in treating patients with myelodysplastic syndrome and anemia.
