Brief Summary:
This study will evaluate the efficacy of uproleselan (GMI-1271), a specific E-selectin antagonist, in combination with chemotherapy to treat relapsed/refractory AML, compared to chemotherapy alone. The safety of uproleselan when given with chemotherapy will also be investigated in patients with relapsed/refractory AML

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Overall survival [ Time Frame: 5 years ]
    Time from the date of randomization into the study to the date of death.

Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Rate of severe oral mucositis [ Time Frame: up to 60 days ]
    Incidence of severe oral mucositis experienced in patients after treatment.

  2. Overall response rate [ Time Frame: Up to 60 days ]
    Proportion of subjects who achieve a complete remission [CR] or CR with partial recovery [CRh] of blood counts

Other Outcome Measures:
  1. Event-free survival [ Time Frame: 2 years ]
    Time from date of randomization into the study to the date of treatment failure, relapse, or death from any cause; whichever occurs first.

  2. Duration of remission [ Time Frame: 2 years ]
    Time from date of first documented remission to date of relapse or death from any cause, whichever occurs first.

  3. Adverse events [ Time Frame: up to 5 months ]
    Frequency, severity, and relatedness of adverse events.

  4. Pharmacokinetic exposure (amount of uproleselan in the blood) [ Time Frame: up to 6 days ]
    The amount of uproleselan in the blood over time.
