Comparing flavopiridol with ara-C and mitoxantrone (FLAM) to traditional chemotherapy used to treat newly diagnosed AML of ara-C and daunorubicin (7+3).

Clinical Details

Official title: Timed Sequential Therapy (TST) With Alvocidib (Flavopiridol), Ara-C and Mitoxantrone (FLAM) Versus "7+3" for Newly Diagnosed Acute Myelogenous Leukemia (AML)

Study design: Allocation: Randomized, Endpoint Classification: Safety/Efficacy Study, Intervention Model: Single Group Assignment, Masking: Open Label, Primary Purpose: Treatment

Primary outcome: The rate of complete remission (CR) after 1 cycle of induction therapy

Secondary outcome:



Detailed description: The purpose of this research study is to compare two different chemotherapy regimens to try to find out which way might be safer and/or more effective against Acute Myelogenous Leukemia (AML). This is a Phase II study. Phase II studies are designed to examine whether specific drugs or drug combinations have activity against a specific type of cancer. The combination of flavopiridol with ara-C and mitoxantrone (FLAM) is an experimental combination for treating newly diagnosed AML with high risk features. In this study the flavopiridol, ara-C and mitoxantrone is being compared to traditional chemotherapy used to treat newly diagnosed AML of ara-C and daunorubicin (7+3).
