Trial Information

A Phase II Study Of Induction With Daunorubicin, Cytarabine, And Cyclosporine All By Continuous IV Infusion For Previously Untreated Non-M3 Acute Myeloid Leukemia (AML) In Patients Of Age 56 Or Older


- Determine the safety and efficacy of cyclosporine, daunorubicin, and cytarabine in
older patients with previously untreated acute myeloid leukemia.

- Determine the frequency and severity of toxic effects of this regimen in these

- Determine, preliminarily, the frequency and prognostic significance of functional and
phenotypic P-glycoprotein expression and cytogenetics in patients treated with this

- Determine, preliminarily, the pharmacokinetic characteristics of this regimen in these

OUTLINE: This is a multicenter study.

- Induction therapy: Patients receive cyclosporine IV and daunorubicin IV continuously on
days 1-3 and cytarabine IV continuously on days 1-7. Patients who achieve complete
response (CR) after chemotherapy receive filgrastim (G-CSF) or sargramostim (GM-CSF) IV
or subcutaneously beginning on day 15 or 20 and continuing until blood counts recover.
Patients who maintain CR after 2 courses of induction therapy proceed to consolidation

- Consolidation therapy: Patients receive treatment as in induction therapy with
cyclosporine and daunorubicin on days 1-2 and cytarabine on days 1-5. Patients
achieving CR receive an additional course of chemotherapy beginning at least 14 days
after completion of the first course of cytarabine.

Patients are followed every 3 months for 1 year, every 6 months for 1 year, and then
annually for 3 years.

PROJECTED ACCRUAL: A total of 25-64 patients will be accrued for this study within 13
