Clinical research is at the heart of all medical advances, identifying new ways to prevent, detect or treat disease. If you have a bone marrow failure disease, you may want to consider taking part in a clinical trial, also called a research study.

The National Myelodysplastic Syndromes Natural History Study Spotlight

Status(es): Recruiting
Study Date(s): Friday, April 1, 2016 to Wednesday, September 1, 2021

Trial of the Combination of Bortezomib and Clofarabine in Adults With Relapsed Solid Tumors Spotlight

Status(es): Recruiting
Study Date(s): Wednesday, August 6, 2014 to Friday, August 31, 2018
Disease(s): myelodysplastic syndromes (MDS)
Age Group: 18 years and older
This is an open-label Phase I trial. The starting dose of clofarabine will be 1 mg/m2 administered intravenously on days 1 through 5 of a 21-day cycle; bortezomib will be administered at 0.8 mg/m2 subcutaneously on days 1 and 4 of a 21-day cycle. Dose escalation will follow a 3+3 design, with dose limiting toxicities defined during cycle 1. Dose escalation will proceed in cohorts comprised of two separate groups of patients (one group of patients with solid tumor/lymphoma and one group of patients with MDS), with at least 1 from each group, until hematologic DLT or the second grade 2...
