Myelodysplastic Syndrome Clinical Trial
Comparing Two Diets in Patients Undergoing HSCT or Remission Induction Chemo for Acute Leukemia and MDS (UF-BMT-LDND-101)
This is an open-label, two-arm, phase III non-inferiority trial to evaluate the safety of a liberalized hospital diet inclusive of fresh fruits and vegetables to a neutropenic diet in patients with prolonged neutropenia. Both cohorts and diets will adhere to the hygiene and common sense advice listed in the FDA-endorsed food safety guidelines.
Age 18 years or older

Allogeneic or autologous HSCT for any indication. For patients undergoing reduced intensity conditioning, only those regimens in which the expected neutropenia is â‰¥ 7 days are permitted and the patient must reside in the hospital
Expected duration of neutropenia of â‰¥ 7 days
Use of anti infectives for treatment of active systemic infections within 7 days prior to initiation of study diet
Untreated major infection at presentation
Patients with uncontrolled invasive fungal infection (defined as those who have not completed at least 6 weeks of treatment; or who are symptomatic with two CT scans, at least 1 week apart showing uncontrolled disease at the time of initiation of study diet)
Uncontrolled HIV, Hepatitis B and C infection
