Farnesyl transferase inhibitor (lonafarnib) in patients with myelodysplastic syndrome or secondary acute myeloid leukaemia: a phase II study


Although an activating mutation of Ras is commonly observed in myelodysplastic syndrome (MDS), the role of Ras in the natural history of MDS remains largely unknown. We prospectively studied efficiency and tolerance of lonafarnib, a compound able to inhibit Ras signalling pathway through an inhibition of farnesyl transferase, in patients with MDS or… (More)
