The purpose of this randomized, two-arm, open-label expansion phase study is to collect preliminary efficacy data of panobinostat at the recommended phase II dose (RPIID) level in combination with azacytidine (5-Aza) versus an active control arm 5-Aza alone. This randomized phase II part allows also collecting safety data of panobinostat in combination with 5-Aza in comparison to single-agent 5-aza.

Bone Marrow Disease(s):
- myelodysplastic syndromes (MDS)
Drug: Panobinostat (LBH589) and 5-Azacytidine Each dose of panobinostat should be taken with 240 mL of water. Patients should be instructed to swallow the capsules whole and not chew them. If the patient forgets to take his/her dose during the morning on a scheduled treatment day then the missed dose should be taken on that same day within 12 hours. After more than 12 hours, that day's dose should be withheld, and the patient should wait to take panobinostat until the next scheduled treatment day. The patient should then continue treatment with the original dosing schedule. The days when panobinostat and 5-Aza are scheduled together (Day 3 and Day 5 of a treatment cycle), panobinostat should be administered approximately 30 min prior to 5-Aza. Drug: 5-Azacytidine
