Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Number of Participants Who Achieved Overall Response [ Time Frame: 1 year ]

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Best Response and Overall Improvement [ Time Frame: 1 year ]
    Overall Improvement = complete remission + marrow complete remission + partial remission + hematologic improvement (CR+mCR+PR+HI)


Enrollment: 99
