Phase II Study of Idarubicin, Cytarabine, and Vorinostat With High-Risk Myelodysplastic Syndrome (MDS) and Acute Myeloid Leukemia (AML)
The goal of this clinical research study is to find the highest safe dose of vorinostat that can be given in combination with idarubicin and ara-C for the treatment of AML and high-risk MDS.
Once the highest safe dose is found, researchers will then try to learn if this combination treatment can help to control AML and high-risk MDS in newly diagnosed patients. The safety of this treatment combination will also be studied.
Acute Myeloid Leukemia (AML)
Myelodysplastic Syndrome (MDS)
|Study Design:||Endpoint Classification: Safety/Efficacy Study
Intervention Model: Single Group Assignment
Masking: Open Label
Primary Purpose: Treatment
|Official Title:||Phase II Study of Idarubicin, Cytarabine, and Vorinostat in Patients With High-Risk MDS and AML|
- Progression Free Survival (PFS) [ Time Frame: Baseline to disease progression, up to 18 treatment cycles (4-6 week cycle) ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]Progression-free survival defined as time from date of randomization to first occurrence of having documented disease progression or death due to any cause, whichever comes first. Progression based on tumor assessments according to Response Evaluation Criteria in Solid Tumors (RECIST).
- Participant Response [ Time Frame: Monitoring with each 4 week cycle, up to 18 cycles of treatment ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]Response assessed according RECIST: Complete Response (CR) defined as normalization of marrow (< 5% blasts) and of peripheral blood counts (neutrophil count > 1.109/L, platelet count > 100 x 109/L). Partial response (PR) defined as for CR in terms of peripheral counts but with reduction of marrow blasts by >50% compared to pretreatment values but above <5%. CRp = CR, but platelets <100 x 109/L. Progressive disease defined as increase of blasts to > 10% after an initial response.
