I. Determine the maximum tolerated dose (MTD) of metformin (metformin hydrochloride) in combination with cytarabine in relapsed/refractory AML.
II. Define the dose limiting toxicity (DLT) of metformin in combination with cytarabine in relapsed/refractory AML.
I. Remission rate. II. Overall survival (OS). III. Disease-free survival (DFS). IV. Length of remission.
OUTLINE: This is a dose-escalation study of metformin hydrochloride in combination with Cytarabine.
Patients receive metformin hydrochloride orally (PO) twice daily (BID) on days 1-15 and cytarabine intravenously (IV) over 3 hours BID on days 4-10.
After completion of study treatment, patients are followed up every 3 months for 2 years and then every 6 months for 5 years.

- Evaluate toxicity by assessing the adverse events of metformin and cytarabine [ Time Frame: Checked daily during administration of cytarabine and at least 2x weekly following therapy until desired blood counts acheived (maximum 15 days) ]To determine the maximum tolerated dose (MTD) by assessing the adverse events of metformin in combination with cytarabine in evaluating toxicity. Assessments will occur daily during cytarabine administration and at least twice weekly following treatment until blood count recovery.
- Study treatment dose toxicity will be evaluated by measurement of adverse events experienced while on treatment [ Time Frame: Checked daily during administration of cytarabine and at least 2x weekly following therapy until desired blood counts acheived (maximum 15 days) ]Determination of Dose Limiting Toxicity (DLT) as evidenced by adverse events due to toxicity from study treatment
- Remission rate [ Time Frame: Every 3 months for 2 years, and then every 6 months for 5 years post-treatment ]Patients will be evaluated for remission status in response to therapy.
- Overall survival [ Time Frame: Every 3 months for 2 years, and then every 6 months for 5 years post-treatment ]Patients will be followed-up with from the initiation of study treatment until progression of disease or for up to 5 years, whichever comes first.
- Disease-free survival [ Time Frame: Every 3 months for 2 years, and then every 6 months for 5 years post-treatment ]Evaluation of Disease-Free Survival will defined as the time from the initiation of study treatment until the time of disease relapse.
- Length of remission [ Time Frame: From date of remission of disease to date of relapse (maximum of 5 year follow-up) ]Patients will be followed-up with to determine Remission length which is defined as the time from attainment of remission to relapse of disease.
- Bone marrow and blood samples will be taken prior to study treatment to determine number of leukemic progenitor cells [ Time Frame: At baseline prior to study treatment ]
- Immunoblotting [ Time Frame: At baseline prior to study treatment ]Bone marrow and/or blood samples taken prior to initiation of treatment will be used in Immunoblotting studies to observe enzyme and protein activity.
- Identical immunoblotting [ Time Frame: At baseline prior to study treatment ]Identical immunoblotting studies may also be performed using blood samples taken prior to start of treatment.
