    Vidaza, at some point, seems to run its course and the blast cells begin increase in number. With that said, has anyone had success with a combination of Vidaza and Venetoclax? I’ve had great luck with Vidaza for over almost three years. Now, I’m finding that I must come up with another cocktail to once again get my numbers looking a little better! Curious in Dallas! I have signed up for the MDS FOUNDATION FORUM here in Dallas on November 9,2019. Remember…everyones different!

    As far as I know Venetoclax hasn’t been approved for MDS yet. It has been approved for AML. My husband has been in a clinical trial since November 2018 receiving Vidaza for 7 days and Venetoclax for 14 days with 3 week breaks in between. He is considered in remission because his blasts have dropped down to <2. His WBC and platelets drop in between treatements but come right back up with treatment. I’m a little concerned though because his hemoglobin was staying right around 11 but in the passed few months we are seeing that drop down into the 9’s.
