ClinicalTrials.gov Identifier: NCT01770158
Recruitment Status :
(Recruitment goal cannot be achieved any more as only 8 patients have been recruited since start of the study in 2012.)
This is a non-interventional multi-center study (NIS) in adult patients with AML in first complete remission with measurable minimal residual disease (MRD). Patients are eligible when gene status was already determined for previous induction and consolidation therapy of AML and showed carrier of NPM1, CBFβ-MYH11, or MLL-AF9 mutation. The study objective is to observe the impact of pre-emptive therapy with histamine dihydrochloride (HDC) and interleukin-2 (IL-2) with regard to assess leukemia-free survival/time to relapse and to monitor MRD level trend over time. HDC and IL-2 are approved drugs for AML patients in first complete remission. Therapy is administered for 10 treatment cycles as outlined in the Summary of Product Characteristics.

Ages Eligible for Study:
18 Years and older (Adult, Older Adult)
Sexes Eligible for Study:
Accepts Healthy Volunteers:
Adult patients with acute myeloid leukaemia (AML) in first remission following completion of consolidation therapy and concomitantly treated with interleukin-2 (IL-2) which will receive treatment with CEPLENE® for the first time. Patients are eligible when gene status was already determined for previous induction and consolidation therapy of AML and showed carrier of NPM1, CBFβ-MYH11, or MLL-AF9 mutation.
Patient eligibility criteria in accordance to the summary of Product Characteristics:
Patients with confirmed diagnosis of acute myeloid leukemia according to the World Health Organization (WHO) classification (including de novo AML, t-AML and s-AML) in first complete remission (defined as less than 5% blasts in a normocellular bone marrow assessed prior to the treatment start)
AMLSG BiO participation incl. favourable opinion
Presence of NPM1 mutation, CBFB-MYH11 or MLL-AF9 fusion genes as assessed in one of the central AMLSG reference laboratories.
Measurable MRD values (non-negative values after consolidation therapy or increase in values over the threshold during follow-up in complete remission)
The patient must be informed of the observation and written informed consent regarding data privacy obtained.
Consent for registration, storage and processing of the individual disease-characteristics and course as well as information of the family physician and all other treating physicians about observation participation
No continuing systemic treatment with clonidine, steroids, and/or H2 receptor blocking agents.
