Masking: Open Label
Primary Purpose: Treatment
|Official Title:||Study of Oral Clofarabine Plus Low-dose Cytarabine in Previously Treated AML and High-Risk MDS Patients at Least 60 Years of Age|
- Safety, according to the National Cancer Institute (NCI) Common Terminology Criteria v3.0, as assessed by the MTD of clofarabine when given together with cytarabine [ Time Frame: Occurring by day 30 ]Dose limiting toxicity (DLT) consists of grade 3-4 non-hematologic toxicity at least possibly related to study drug. Exceptions include neutropenic fever; drug-related fever; alopecia; anorexia; inadequately treated nausea, vomiting and/or diarrhea; and grade 3/4 increase in ALT, AST, or bilirubin recovering to < grade 2 by 7 days. Prolonged grade 2 myelosuppression lasting longer than 49 days in patients who don't proceed to additional cytotoxic therapy is considered a DLT. The MTD or recommended phase II dose is the highest dose level at which no more than 1 patient out of 6 experiences DLT.
- Overall response [ Time Frame: Every 3 months for 2 years and then annually for 3 years ]
- Duration of response [ Time Frame: Every 3 months for 2 years and then annually for 3 years ]
- Time to treatment failure [ Time Frame: Every 3 months for 2 years and then annually for 3 years ]
- Overall survival [ Time Frame: Up to 5 years ]
|Study Start Date:||November 2008|
|Primary Completion Date:||December 2012 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)|
Experimental: Treatment (chemotherapy)
Patients receive clofarabine PO QD on days 1-5 and low-dose cytarabine SC BID on days 1-10 or SC QD on days 1-14. Treatment repeats every 21-28 days for up to 4 courses in the absence of disease progression or unacceptable toxicity.
Other Names:Drug: cytarabine
I. To estimate the maximum tolerated dose (MTD) of oral clofarabine when given with LDAC (cytarabine) in patients age >= 60 with previously treated AML or high risk MDS.
I. To determine the response rate, disease-free survival (DFS), and overall survival (OS) after therapy with oral clofarabine and LDAC for previously treated AML or high-risk MDS.
OUTLINE: This is a phase I, dose-escalation study of clofarabine followed by a phase II study.
Patients receive clofarabine orally (PO) once daily (QD) on days 1-5 and low-dose cytarabine subcutaneously (SC) twice daily (BID) on days 1-10 or SC QD on days 1-14. Treatment repeats every 21-28 days for up to 4 courses in the absence of disease progression or unacceptable toxicity.
After completion of study treatment, patients are followed up every 3 months for 2 years and then annually for 3 years.
