|Brief Title ICMJE||Combination Chemotherapy in Treating Older Patients With Acute Myeloid Leukemia|
|Official Title ICMJE||A Randomised Study Comparing an Oral Regimen (Idarubicin and Etoposide) With an Intravenous Regimen (MAE) for Consolidation in Patients Over 55 Years With Acute Myeloid Leukaemia in First Complete Remission|
RATIONALE: Drugs used in chemotherapy use different ways to stop cancer cells from dividing so they stop growing or die. Combining more than one drug may kill more cancer cells. It is not yet known which combination chemotherapy regimen is more effective in treating older patients with acute myeloid leukemia.
PURPOSE: Randomized phase III trial to compare the effectiveness of two different combination chemotherapy regimens in treating older patients with acute myeloid leukemia in first remission.
OUTLINE: This is a randomized study. Patients are stratified according to number of courses of induction therapy required to achieve complete remission.
All patients receive induction chemotherapy consisting of idarubicin IV on days 1-3 and cytarabine IV over 12 hours on days 1-7. Patients receive 1-2 courses of induction chemotherapy to achieve complete remission.
Patients are randomized to one of two treatment arms for consolidation therapy after achieving complete remission.
Quality of life is assessed before each course of consolidation chemotherapy and 6-8 weeks after completion of therapy.
Patients are followed until death.
PROJECTED ACCRUAL: Approximately 400 patients will be accrued for this study.
