|Condition or disease||Intervention/treatment||Phase|
|Acute Myelogenous Leukemia Myelodysplastic Syndrome||Drug: Preparative Regimen Biological: Intravenous Recombinant Human IL-15 (rhIL-15)||Phase 1|
Once the MTD/MED for IL-15 is determined, this cohort will be expanded to a total of 19 patients. The primary goal of this extended phase will be to establish a correlation of the clinical endpoint, CRp defined as leukemic clearance (< 5% marrow blast and no peripheral blood blasts) and neutrophil recovery without platelet recovery, with in vivo expansion.
Patients achieving a complete remission and neutrophil recovery (ANC > 500) for at least 4 weeks will be considered for allogeneic transplant to prolong remission independent of this study.
All patients, including those who go on to transplant, will be followed to determine disease free survival, treatment related mortality, and time to relapse.

Experimental: IL-15 Patients with AML
Adults with Refractory or Relapsed Acute Myelogenous Leukemia (AML) treated with preparative regimen and Intravenous Recombinant Human IL-15 (rhIL-15)
Drug: Preparative Regimen
Fludarabine 25 mg/m^2 x 5 days start day -6, Cyclophosphamide 60 mg/kg x 2 days on day -5 and -4 (*if < 4 months from prior transplant, omit day -4 dose)
Biological: Intravenous Recombinant Human IL-15 (rhIL-15)
IL-15 at assigned dose (0.25, 0.5, 0.75 1, 2 and 3 mcg/kg for 3 to 6 patients) intravenously (IV) over 30 minutes once a day beginning day +1 and continuing for 12 doses
Other Name: IL-15
- Maximum Tolerated/Minimum Efficacious Dose [ Time Frame: Day 42 ]Determine the maximum tolerated, minimum efficacious dose (MTD/MED) of recombinant human IL-15; dose limiting toxicity (DLT) occurring during the first 42 days after the NK cell infusion; MED = if 2 of 3 patients or 4 of 6 patients has an in vivo NK cell count >2500, then dose escalation with cease as it will be in the range of a biologic dose which may achieve the goal of in vivo expansion without pushing IL-15 doses higher to toxicity.
- Incidence of Expansion of Natural Killer Cells [ Time Frame: Day 14 after Infusion ]defined by measuring an absolute circulating donor-derived NK cell count of >100 cells/μl in the patient's peripheral blood by day +14 after the NK cell infusion.
- Treatment Related Mortality (TRM) [ Time Frame: Day 1 of Treatment until Day of Death ]In the field of transplantation, toxicity is high and all deaths without previous relapse or progression are usually considered as related to transplantation.
- Rate of CRp [ Time Frame: Day 28-42 ]defined as leukemia clearance (< 5% marrow blasts and no peripheral blood blasts) and neutrophil recovery without platelet recovery.
