Study Description
Brief Summary:
The main purposes of the AIDA protocol are to test the role of intermittent maintenance therapy with ATRA, standard maintenance chemotherapy with methotrexate and 6-mercaptopurine of both in PCR negative patients at the end of the consolidation phase and to evaluate the role of allogeneic or autologous bone marrow transplantation in PCR positive patients at the end of the consolidation phase.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment
Leukemia Drug: all-trans retinoic acid (ATRA)

Outcome Measures

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. To assess the role of maintenance therapy with ATRA, chemotherapy or both in PCR negative patients at the end of the consolidation phase.

Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. To assess the role of allogeneic or autologous bone marrow transplantation in PCR positive patients at the end of the consolidation phase
  2. To evaluate the role of maintenance therapy with ATRA and chemotherapy in PCR positive patients at the end of the consolidation phase not eligible for a BMT procedure
  3. To assess the efficacy, in terms of CR rate, and toxicity of an induction treatment combining ATRA with Idarubicin
