"Conclusions: SGI-110 is well tolerated at doses higher than BED which is established at 60 mg/m2 dailyx5 where average hypomethylation of ~25% was achieved. MTD estimated to be 90 mg/m2 dailyx5 for MDS and 125 mg/m2dailyx5 for AML patients. SQ administration of SGI-110 achieved efficient conversion to decitabine resulting in an improved PK profile over DAC IV. Clinical responses were observed in this heavily pretreated population and they seem to correlate with the extent of LINE-1 hypomethylation. Study is currently enrolling patients in the dose-expansion Phase 2 stage.
