|Condition or disease||Intervention/treatment||Phase|
|AML||Drug: Etoposide Drug: Cytarabine Drug: Lenalidomide Drug: Mitoxantrone||Phase 2|
This research study is a Phase II clinical trial. Phase II clinical trials test the safety and effectiveness of an investigational intervention to learn whether the intervention works in treating a specific disease. "Investigational" means that the intervention is being studied.
The FDA (the U.S. Food and Drug Administration) has not approved lenalidomide for this specific disease, but it has been approved for other uses, including for patients with multiple myeloma and some patients with myelodysplastic syndrome. This treatment is investigational because it is not approved by the FDA for patients with AML. Lenalidomide is a chemotherapy that also modulates the immune system, and is in a category of drugs called immunomodulatory drugs or IMIDs. Some research studies suggest that lenalidomide may be effective in patients with AML. Since the investigators know that many patients who receive MEC chemotherapy alone have less than desired response rates and overall shorter periods of remission (time free from leukemia) after treatment, the investigators are studying whether the addition of lenalidomide to MEC improves upon typical responses.
The combination of MEC (mitoxantrone, etoposide, and cytarabine) is a standard treatment option, commonly used for relapsed or refractory acute myeloid leukemia.

Experimental: Lenalidomide and MEC chemotherapy
Lenalidomide is taken orally on a daily basis days 1-10. Mitoxantrone, Etoposide, and Cytarabine are administered intravenously on a daily basis for days 4 through 8 of the treatment. There is only one cycle of treatment in this study.
A Drug that interfere with the action of topoisomerase enzymes (topoisomerase I and II). Topoisomerase enzymes control the manipulation of the structure of DNA necessary for replication.
Other Name: Toposar
Cytarabine is an antimetabolite antineoplastic agent that inhibits the synthesis of DNA.
Other Name: Depocyt
It may act by inhibiting the growth of new blood vessels (angiogenesis) in tumors, enhancing the status of the immune system, or decreasing cytokine and growth factor production
Other Name: REVLIMID
It interfere with cell reproduction
Other Name: Novantrone
