Phase I/II Study of DFP-10917 in Patients With Acute Leukemia
The safety and scientific validity of this study is the responsibility of the study sponsor and investigators. Listing a study does not mean it has been evaluated by the U.S. Federal Government.
Read our disclaimer for details.
The purpose of this study is to determine the safety and efficacy of DFP-10917 given via continuous 7 or 14 day infusion to patients with acute leukemias (AML or ALL).

Phase 1Phase 2
This study will determine the safety and efficacy of DFP-10917 in patients with AML or ALL. The Phase I dose-escalation portion of the study will determine the highest tolerable dose and regimen (7 or 14 day continuous infusion) based on safety data in patients with refractory or relapsed AML or ALL. The phase II portion will investigate the safety and efficacy of DFP-10917, at the dose and regimen to be determined in the Phase I portion, in patients with refractory or relapsed AML.

Ages Eligible for Study:
18 Years and older (Adult, Older Adult)
Sexes Eligible for Study:
Accepts Healthy Volunteers:
Patients must have pathologically-confirmed acute leukemia, refractory or relapsed after standard therapy for the disease or for which conventional systemic chemotherapy is not reliably effective or no effective therapy is available Phase II Only: Patient must have histologically or pathologically confirmed diagnosis of AML based on WHO classification that is refractory after standard therapy, or for which conventional systemic chemotherapy is not reliably effective, or no effective therapy is available. Patients aged 60 years or older with newly diagnosed AML who are not eligible for, or who refuse, standard care are also eligible.
Aged ≥ 18 years.
ECOG Performance Status of 0, 1 or 2.
Adequate clinical laboratory values (i.e., plasma creatinine <= 1.5 x upper limit of normal (ULN) for the institution, bilirubin <=1.5 x ULN, alanine transaminase (ALT) and aspartate transaminase (AST) <= 2.5 x ULN).
Absence of CNS involvement by leukemia.
Absence of uncontrolled intercurrent illnesses, including uncontrolled infections, cardiac conditions, or other organ dysfunctions.
Signed informed consent prior to the start of any study specific procedures.
Women of child-bearing potential must have a negative serum or urine pregnancy test. Male and female patients must agree to use acceptable contraceptive methods for the duration of the study and for at least one month after the last drug administration.
The interval from prior treatment to time of study drug administration is < 2 weeks for cytotoxic agents or < 5 half-lives for noncytotoxic agents. Exceptions: Use of hydroxyurea is allowed before the start of study and may be administered up to day 5 of the first cycle.
Any >grade 1 persistent clinically significant toxicities from prior chemotherapy.
Extensive prior radiotherapy to more than 30% of bone marrow reserves, or prior bone marrow/stem cell transplantation.
Any concomitant condition that in the opinion of the investigator could compromise the objectives of this study and the patient's compliance.

Patient has acute promyelocytic leukemia (APL).
Patients with known HIV, HBV or HCV infection (note: testing for these infections is not required).
Documented or known clinically significant bleeding disorder.
