RATIONALE: Studying samples of bone marrow and blood from patients with cancer in the laboratory may help doctors predict how well patients will respond to treatment.

PURPOSE: This research study is studying biomarkers in bone marrow and blood samples from older patients with acute myeloid leukemia treated with cytarabine-based therapy.

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Proportion of patients achieving a complete response to induction chemotherapy [ Time Frame: 1 month ]

Enrollment: 200
Actual Study Start Date: July 8, 2010
Study Completion Date: August 8, 2010
Primary Completion Date: August 8, 2010 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Detailed Description:



  • To validate a pre-specified proteomic classifier to predict the likelihood of complete response (CR) to cytarabine-based induction chemotherapy in older patients with non-M3 acute myeloid leukemia.


  • To identify signaling nodes associated with risk of relapse among these patients who achieve a CR to induction chemotherapy.

OUTLINE: This is a multicenter study.

Previously collected bone marrow and peripheral blood samples are analyzed to validate the association of a pre-specified proteomic signature with clinical response via flow cytometry.
