Abstract

Hypomethylating drugs are useful in the management of Myelodysplastic syndromes, but  there are only few reports on chronic myelomonocycitic (CMML) leukemia patients. We describe our experience in 3 CMML patients treated with azacitidine. Two patients obtained partial response after 4 treatment cycles with only minor toxicity and are in continuous partial response, with stable peripheral blood counts, at 29 and 30 cycles from treatment start.

Keywords

CMML, 5-azacytidine
