Phase II Study of Temozolomide in Previously Untreated Acute Myeloid Leukemia (AML)/Myelodysplastic Syndrome (MDS) Subjects Unsuitable for Standard Induction Therapy Exhibiting Low MGMT Expression
Allocation: Non-Randomized, Endpoint Classification: Efficacy Study, Intervention Model: Single Group Assignment, Masking: Open Label, Primary Purpose: Treatment
Clinical Response at the End of Temozolomide Induction
Complete Response (CR): < 5% blasts in normocellular bone marrow (BM); Absolute Neutrophil Count (ANC) > 1.0 x 10^9/L, platelets > 100 x 10^9/L, and no extramedullary disease. CR with incomplete platelet recovery (CRp): All the criteria of CR but with platelets < 100 x 10^9/L but ≥ 50 x 10^9/L and platelet transfusion independent. Morphologic leukemia-free state (MLFS): complete clearance of blasts from marrow and blood, but criteria for CR or CRp not met. Partial response (PR): decrease ≥ 50% BM blasts. Minimal Response (MR): decrease ≥ 25% but <50% BM blasts.
at the end of each cycle (approximately 4 weeks post start of cycle), up to a maximum 63 weeks
