Study Title

A Pilot Study of CPX-351 (Vyxeos) for Transplant Eligible, Higher Risk Patients with Myelodysplastic Syndrome


This is a pilot and feasibility study of transplant eligible, higher risk myelodysplastic syndrome (MDS) patients to determine the safety and tolerability of a lower -dose and higher-dose CPX-351 regimen, with secondary objectives including complete remission (CR) rates and proportion of patients proceeding to transplant.


The primary objective for this study was to establish the MTD for CPX-351 and determine the recommended Phase II dose using a single induction course administering doses on Days 1, 3, and 5, by 90 minute infusion.




CPX-351 (Vyxeos)

Inclusion Criteria

  • Diagnosis of myelodysplastic syndrome (MDS) with an IPSS-R score of Intermediate, High or Very High (see Appendix A) AND ≥ 5% myeloblasts in the bone marrow.
  • Age 18-70 years.
  • ECOG performance status ≤ 2 (see Appendix B)
  • Adequate renal and hepatic function as defined per protocol.
  • Left ventricular cardiac ejection fraction ≥ 50% by echocardiography or MUGA.
  • Deemed by the treating physician to be a suitable candidate for cytotoxic induction therapy and an alloHCT candidate at the time of enrollment.
  • Women of childbearing potential and men must agree to use adequate contraception (hormonal or barrier method of birth control, abstinence) prior to study entry and continuing until 30 days after the last study treatment.

  • Exclusion Criteria

  • Prior treatment for MDS with disease-modifying therapy (conventional or investigational) (i.e. hypomethylator therapy, lenalidomide, or prior AML-like induction therapy intended for the therapy of MDS). Use of prior growth factor and ESA support is permitted.
  • Currently receiving any other investigational agents.
  • A history of allergic reactions attributed to compounds of similar chemical or biologic composition to CPX-351 or other agents used in the study.
  • Uncontrolled intercurrent illness including, but not limited to, ongoing or active infection, symptomatic congestive heart failure, unstable angina pectoris, or cardiac arrhythmia.
  • History of Wilson's disease or other copper-metabolism disorder.
  • Pregnant and/or breastfeeding. Women of childbearing potential must have a negative pregnancy test within 14 days of study entry.
  • Known active viral infection with human immunodeficiency virus (HIV), hepatitis B virus (HBV), or hepatitis C virus (HCV). Patients who are seropositive because of hepatitis B virus vaccine are eligible. Patients who are seropositive for HCV but have a negative viral load are also eligible provided that the patient has completed a course of therapy for HCV.
