Title   Vorinostat and Azacitidine in Treating Patients With Myelodysplastic Syndromes or Acute Myeloid Leukemia
Description   The purpose of this trial is to study the side effects and best dose of vorinostat and azacitidine in treating patients with myelodysplastic syndromes or acute myeloid leukemia.

Vorinostat may stop the growth of cancer or abnormal cells by blocking some of the enzymes needed for cell growth.

Drugs used in chemotherapy, such as azacitidine, work in different ways to stop the growth of cancer or abnormal cells, either by killing the cells or by stopping them from dividing.

Giving vorinostat together with azacitidine may kill more cancer or abnormal cells.
Eligibility Criteria   To be eligible for this study, patients must meet several criteria, including but not limited to the following:

* Patient must be 18 Years and older

-Refractory anemia (RA)
