Study Design:

Allocation: Non-Randomized, Endpoint Classification: Safety/Efficacy Study, Intervention Model: Single Group Assignment, Masking: Open Label, Primary Purpose: Treatment

Outcome Measure:

Major and Overall Hematologic Response (MaHR and OHR)

Outcome Description:

MaHR=best confirmed response of complete hematologic response (CHR) or No Evidence of Leukemia (NEL). Criteria for MaHR are specified in Outcome Measure 2. OHR=best confirmed response of MaHR or minor HR (MiHR). MiHR= <15% blasts in bone marrow and <15% blasts in peripheral blood (PB); <30% blasts + promyelocytes in bone marrow and <30% blasts + promyelocytes in PB; <20% basophils in PB; no extramedullary disease other than spleen and liver. Confirmed hematologic response=response confirmed ≥4 weeks after first documented event with no concomitant use of anagrelide or hydroxyurea.

Outcome Time Frame:

Baseline (within 72 hours of therapy start); Cycle 1/Day 1; Weekly during Cycle 1 and 2; After every 2nd cycle during Cycles 3+; at end of treatment
