Amifostine and High-Dose Combination Chemotherapy in Treating Patients With Acute Myeloid Leukemia or Chronic Myelogenous Leukemia
RATIONALE: Drugs used in chemotherapy use different ways to stop cancer cells from dividing so they stop growing or die. Chemoprotective drugs, such as amifostine, may protect normal cells from the side effects of chemotherapy.
PURPOSE: Phase II trial to study the effectiveness of amifostine and high-dose combination chemotherapy in treating patients with acute myeloid leukemia or chronic myelogenous leukemia.
Drug/Agent Toxicity by Tissue/Organ
Drug: amifostine trihydrate
Drug: mitoxantrone hydrochloride
|Study Design:||Primary Purpose: Supportive Care|
|Official Title:||Protocol for Treatment of Newly Diagnosed High Risk And Relapsed Acute Myeloid Leukemia and Blastic Crisis Chronic Myelogenous Leukemia With Ethyol and High-Dose Cytarabine + Mitoxantron Followed by Maintenance Phase Using Low-Dose ARA-C, rhGM-CSF, Pentoxifylline, Ciprofloxacin and Decadron|
|Study Start Date:||April 1998|
OBJECTIVES: I. Assess the effects of amifostine on the response to remission induction therapy and consolidation with cytarabine and mitoxantrone in patients with poor prognosis acute myeloid leukemia (AML), relapsed AML, and blastic phase chronic myelogenous leukemia (CML). II. Assess the effects of amifostine on the biology of AML and CML cells in vivo in this patient population.
OUTLINE: Patients receive treatment prior to induction therapy on protocols CYL 90-03 and CYL 97-59. Induction therapy consists of amifostine IV on days 1 and 5 and three times a week from days 6 to 28. Fifteen minutes after amifostine on days 1 and 5, patients receive cytarabine IV over 3 hours at hour 0 and hour 12 and mitoxantrone IV over 1 hour at hour 15. Patients who do not enter remission receive a second course of induction therapy. Patients with persistent AML following a second course are removed from the study. Patients who achieve a complete response (CR), clinical CR, or remission in bone marrow but without hematologic recovery or who return to myelodysplastic syndrome receive consolidation therapy. Consolidation therapy consists of amifostine IV on days 1 and 5 and then three times a week until blood counts recover or day 30, whichever comes first. Patients also receive cytarabine and mitoxantrone as in induction therapy. Patients receive a second course of consolidation therapy beginning 1 week after blood counts recover. After completion of consolidation therapy, patients are enrolled on protocol MDS 97-53.
PROJECTED ACCRUAL: A maximum of 50 patients will be accrued for this study.
