A Study of Clofarabine for Older Patients With Newly Diagnosed Acute Myelogenous Leukemia (AML) (CLASSIC II)

2014-08-26 22:42:40 | BioPortfolio

Summary

Clolar (clofarabine injection) is approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for the treatment of pediatric patients 1 to 21 years old with relapsed acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL) who have had at least 2 prior treatment regimens.

This study will evaluate the efficacy of clofarabine in elderly patients with AML who may not benefit from or tolerate treatment with other chemotherapy drugs used in younger patients with AML (cytarabine and anthracyclines)

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

A rare acute myeloid leukemia characterized by abnormal EOSINOPHILS in the bone marrow.

An acute myeloid leukemia in which abnormal PROMYELOCYTES predominate. It is frequently associated with DISSEMINATED INTRAVASCULAR COAGULATION.

An acute leukemia exhibiting cell features characteristic of both the myeloid and lymphoid lineages and probably arising from MULTIPOTENT STEM CELLS.

Conditions in which the abnormalities in the peripheral blood or bone marrow represent the early manifestations of acute leukemia, but in which the changes are not of sufficient magnitude or specificity to permit a diagnosis of acute leukemia by the usual clinical criteria.

An acute myeloid leukemia in which 80% or more of the leukemic cells are of monocytic lineage including monoblasts, promonocytes, and MONOCYTES.
