The goal of this clinical research study is to find the highest tolerable dose of oxaliplatin combined with fludarabine plus cytarabine that can be given to patients with Acute Myeloid Leukemia (AML) or High-Risk Myelodysplastic Syndromes (MDS). Once the highest tolerable dose of oxaliplatin in this drug combination is found, the next goal of the study will be to learn the safety and the ability of the drug combination to control the disease.

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Number of Participants With Objective Response [ Time Frame: After 2 months ]
    Objective response: Complete Response/Remission (CR) defined as a bone marrow with 5% or fewer blasts and peripheral blood count with an absolute neutrophil count of 10^9/Liters or more and platelet count of 100*10^9/Liters or more; Complete Response with Platelets/remission without platelet recovery (CRp) defined as a complete response except for a platelet less than 100*10^9/Liters and transfusion independent; and Partial Response/Remission defined as peripheral blood count recovery as for CR with decrease in marrow blasts >/= 50% and not more than 6-25% abnormal cells in the marrow.

Inclusion Criteria:

  • Histologically or cytologically confirmed relapsed or refractory acute myeloid leukemia (AML) or high-risk myelodysplastic syndrome.
  • Performance status 0-2 (Zubrod scale).
  • Serum creatinine equal or less than 1.3 mg/dL or creatinine clearance > 40 mL/min.
  • Bilirubin </= 2 mg/dL; serum glutamic oxaloacetic transaminase (SGOT) or Serum glutamic pyruvic transaminase (SGPT) </= 3 times the Upper Limit of Normal (ULN) for the reference lab unless due to leukemia or congenital hemolytic disorder (for bilirubin).
  • Written informed consent.

Exclusion Criteria:

  • No untreated or uncontrolled life-threatening infection.
  • No oxaliplatin, fludarabine, or cytarabine intolerance.
  • No pregnancy or lactation. Female patients of childbearing potential (including those < 1 year post-menopausal) and male patients must agree to use contraception.
  • No chemotherapy or radiation therapy within 4 weeks of study entry. Hydroxyurea is allowed prior to starting therapy in the setting of rapidly proliferating disease.
  • No other medical condition, including mental illness or substance abuse, deemed by the Investigator to be likely to interfere with a patient's ability to sign informed consent or cooperate and participate in the study or to interfere with the interpretation of the results.
