Azacitidine Plus Lenalidomide Combination in Elderly Patients With Previously Treated AML and High-Risk MDS (VIREL2 Trial)

Primary Objective: - Determine the lack of disease progression (CR/CRi/PR/HI rate) after 6 cycles of treatment with the combination of azacitidine plus lenalidomide in previously treated patients with Acute Myeloid Leukemia (AML) and high-risk Myelodysplastic Syndromes (HR-MDS). Secondary Objective: - Determine the 42-day survival after treatment with this combination in elderly patients with previously treated AML/HR-MDS patients
