Pharmacological Study of Intravenous OTS167 in Patients With Refractory or Relapsed Acute Myeloid Leukemia, Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia, Advanced Myelodysplastic Syndromes, Advanced Myeloproliferative Neoplastic Disorders, or Advanced Chronic Myelogenous

The purpose of Phase I of this study is to test the safety and tolerability of the investigational drug, OTS167, and that of Phase II of this study is to confirm the potential response benefit of OTS167.

OTS167 is a maternal embryonic leucine zipper kinase (MELK) inhibitor which demonstrated antitumor properties in laboratory tests. It is being developed as an anti-cancer drug. In this study OTS167 will be administrated to patients with AML, ALL, advanced MDSs, advanced MPNs, or advanced CML.

Ruxolitinib Phosphate and Azacytidine in Treating Patients With Myelofibrosis or Myelodysplastic Syndrome/Myeloproliferative Neoplasm

This phase II trial studies how well ruxolitinib phosphate and azacytidine work in treating patients with myelofibrosis or myelodysplastic syndrome/myeloproliferative neoplasm. Ruxolitinib phosphate may stop the growth of cancer cells by blocking some of the enzymes needed for cell growth. Drugs used in
