NCT00801489
First received: December 2, 2008
Last updated: June 12, 2017

  Purpose
The goal of this clinical research study is to learn if idarubicin can be added to the combination of fludarabine, cytarabine, and Neupogen (Filgrastim) without increasing the risk of side effects. This study will also look at whether the addition of idarubicin will increase the long-term chances of patients remaining disease free.

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Complete Response (CR) Rate and Toxicity Rate [ Time Frame: Weekly blood tests, bone marrow aspirate Days 18-24 and at 4 + 7 months, blood tests every 2-3 months for 2 years ]

    Response criteria recommended by the NCI and MDS International Working Group. Complete Response (CR): Peripheral blood counts, No circulating blasts, Neutrophil count ≥ 1.0 X 109/L, Platelet count ≥ 100 X 109/L, Bone marrow aspirate and biopsy, ≤5% blasts, No detectable auer rods, No extramedullary leukemia

    CRp: Response as in CR but platelets <100 X 109/L

    Partial response (PR): Peripheral blood counts, No circulating blasts, Neutrophil count ≥ 1.0 X 109/L, Platelet count ≥ 100 X 109/L, ≥ 50% reduction in bone marrow blasts over baseline



Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Event Free Survival [ Time Frame: 2 years ]
    Event free survival at 2 years defined as death and relapses.


Estimated Enrollment: 180

  Eligibility

Ages Eligible for Study:   18 Years and older   (Adult, Senior)
Sexes Eligible for Study:   All
Accepts Healthy Volunteers:   No
Criteria

Inclusion Criteria:

  1. Patients must have untreated AML, or high-risk MDS [refractory anemia with excess blasts, (RAEB), or RAEB "in transformation" (RAEB-t)] characterized by t(8;21), inv(16), or t(16;16).The presence of additional abnormalities is irrelevant.
  2. Age equal to or greater than 18 years (the safety of GO in patients <18 years is not determined and advantage of fludarabine, cytarabine, idarubicin-based regimen in CBF leukemias in children is not demonstrated).
  3. Patients must provide written consent.
  4. Because of the high possibility of CR in CBF leukemias, participants will not be excluded based on performance status.For patients with Eastern Co-operative Oncology Group (ECOG) performance status >/= to 3 the dosing schedule will be discussed with study chairman.
  5. Patients with organ dysfunction will not be excluded from the study. For patients with evidence of organ dysfunction (creatinine >/= 1.5, cardiac ejection fraction </= 50%, total bilirubin >/=2 and AST/ALT >/= 3 times ULN, dose adjustments/omissions will be made.
  6. Up to one cycle of prior induction therapy will be permitted to include patients in whom presence of "good-risk" cytogenetics was initially missed. If the patient is in remission from induction therapy, he/she will receive post-remission therapy. If the patient is not in remission then he/she will receive induction therapy.
  7. Patients of child bearing potential should practice effective methods of contraception.

Exclusion Criteria:

1) Pregnant and lactating females will be excluded since the safety of GO or FLAG + Ida in pregnancy and lactation is unknown.
