Decitabine Maintenance in Elderly Acute Myeloid Leukemia Patients
The study aims at determining the feasibility of using maintenance Decitabine therapy following remission induction and consolidation in elderly Acute Myeloid Leukemia patients who are fit for aggressive therapy.
Primary: Safety and tolerability of the decitabine regimen in the post remission state.
- Disease-free survival - To determine the one-year disease-free survival in elderly patients with acute myeloid leukemia (AML) in complete remission treated with Decitabine as post-consolidation maintenance therapy.
- Overall survival

|Official Title:||A Pilot Study of Decitabine Maintenance in Elderly Acute Myeloid Leukemia Patients Who Can Tolerate Aggressive Therapy|
- Primary: Safety and tolerability of the decitabine regimen in the post remission state. [ Time Frame: 18 mos on treatment and one year followup thereafter ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
Patient will come to the infusion center for a one-hour infusion on three (3) consecutive days during a 28-day cycle. The 28-day cycle will be repeated for up to 18 months if tolerated or there is no evidence of loss of remission. Patient will receive maintenance therapy with the study drug Decitabine.
The Long-Term Follow-Up Schedule begins from the end of treatment. All patients who receive at least one dose of study drug will be followed for a minimum of one year. The maximum follow-up for all patients will be 5 years from the date of last enrolled patient.
- 1- Disease-free survival - [ Time Frame: One Year ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]To determine the one-year disease-free survival in elderly patients with acute myeloid leukemia (AML) in complete remission treated with Dectiabine as post-consolidation maintenance therapy.
