PURPOSE: This phase II trial is studying how well PXD101 works in treating patients with relapsed or refractory acute myeloid leukemia or older patients with newly diagnosed acute myeloid leukemia.
- Evaluate the response rate (complete response and partial response) in patients with acute myeloid leukemia treated with PXD101.
- Evaluate the overall survival of these patients.
- Evaluate the duration of response in these patients.
- Evaluate the toxicity of this drug in these patients.
- Evaluate molecular response to PXD101.
OUTLINE: This is a multicenter study.
Patients receive PXD101 IV over 30 minutes on days 1-5. Treatment repeats every 21 days for 6-12 months in the absence of disease progression or unacceptable toxicity.
Blood and bone marrow samples are obtained before and after study treatment for laboratory studies.
After completion of study treatment, patients are followed periodically for 1 year.
PROJECTED ACCRUAL: A total of 37 patients will be accrued for this study.

RATIONALE: Belinostat and bortezomib may stop the growth of cancer cells by blocking some of the enzymes needed for cell growth. Giving belinostat together with bortezomib may kill more ca...
This is a Phase 1, open-label, nonrandomized study to determine the PK profiles of belinostat in patients with relapsed/refractory solid tumors or hematological malignancies who have heter...
This phase I trial is studying the side effects and best dose of belinostat when given together with isotretinoin in treating patients with metastatic or unresectable solid tumors. Belinos...
The purpose of this study is to assess efficacy and safety of belinostat in combination with carboplatin and paclitaxel in patients with previously untreated carcinoma of unknown primary.
This is a Phase I dose escalation study of PXD101 administered orally. Oral belinostat will be given once or twice daily at various dosing schedules to patients with solid tumors. Doses wi...
Spray dried dispersions (SDDs) are an important technology for enhancing the oral bioavailability of poorly water-soluble drugs. To design an effective oral SDD formulation, the key rate-determining s...
Galectins are carbohydrate-binding proteins and these have very high affinity for β-galactoside containing glycoproteins and glycolipids. Amongst sixteen types of galectin, the role of galectin 1, 3,...
Myeloid leukemia cutis is the terminology used for cutaneous manifestations of myeloid leukemia.
Exposures to DNA-damaging drugs and ionizing radiations increase risks of acute myeloid leukemia (AML) and myelodysplastic syndrome (MDS).
A replication-defective strain of Murine leukemia virus (LEUKEMIA VIRUS, MURINE) capable of transforming lymphoid cells and producing a rapidly progressing lymphoid leukemia after superinfection with FRIEND MURINE LEUKEMIA VIRUS; MOLONEY MURINE LEUKEMIA VIRUS; or RAUSCHER VIRUS.
A strain of Murine leukemia virus (LEUKEMIA VIRUS, MURINE) producing leukemia of the reticulum-cell type with massive infiltration of liver, spleen, and bone marrow. It infects DBA/2 and Swiss mice.
A strain of Murine leukemia virus (LEUKEMIA VIRUS, MURINE) arising during the propagation of S37 mouse sarcoma, and causing lymphoid leukemia in mice. It also infects rats and newborn hamsters. It is apparently transmitted to embryos in utero and to newborns through mother's milk.
A chronic leukemia characterized by a large number of circulating prolymphocytes. It can arise spontaneously or as a consequence of transformation of CHRONIC LYMPHOCYTIC LEUKEMIA.
A lymphoid leukemia characterized by a profound LYMPHOCYTOSIS with or without LYMPHADENOPATHY, hepatosplenomegaly, frequently rapid progression, and short survival. It was formerly called T-cell chronic lymphocytic leukemia.
