The purpose of this study is to assess the effects of the combination of all-trans retinoic acid in combination with one of two schedules of Bryostatin 1 in patients with myelodysplasia and acute myelogenous leukemia.
All patients receive all-trans retinoic acid at a dose of 150 mg/m2/day and patients are randomized to one of two schedules of Bryostatin 1.
Arm 1: Bryostatin 1 is administered at a dose of 60 mcg/m2 as a 30 minute intravenous (IV) infusion on days 8 and 22.
Arm 2: Bryostatin 1 is administered at a dose of 40 mcg/m2 as a 72 hour IV infusion starting on days 8 and 22.
Patients are assessed for response on day +50 with a bone marrow examination and patients with either a clinical response or stable disease receive further therapy.
Bryostatin 1 pharmacokinetic samples are to be drawn on days 1, 8 and 50 of each cycle.
Allocation: Randomized, Control: Uncontrolled, Endpoint Classification: Efficacy Study, Intervention Model: Parallel Assignment, Masking: Open Label, Primary Purpose: Treatment

Hypothesis: Combined treatment with valproic acid and ATRA can be used to achieve disease stabilization for a subset of patients with acute myelogenous leukemia (AML), and this effect can ...
Hypothesis: Differentiation induction therapy in acute myelogenous leukemia (AML) can be used to achieve disease control and stabilize peripheral blood counts in patients with acute myelog...
This is a study looking at all-trans retinoic acid in combination with standard induction and consolidation therapy in older patients with newly diagnosed acute myeloid leukemia (AML).
This trial is a study on all-trans retinoic acid in combination with induction and consolidation therapy as well as pegfilgrastim after consolidation therapy in younger patients with newly...
The goal of this clinical research study is to learn if starting arsenic trioxide (ATO) therapy on Day 1 rather than Day 10 is more effective in treating patients with newly-diagnosed acut...
Fatty acid oxidation dependency of leukemia cells has been documented in recent studies. Pharmacologic inhibition of fatty acid oxidation, thereby, displays significant effects in suppressing leukemia...
Life on Earth is constantly exposed to electromagnetic fields (EMFs) and the effects induced by EMFs on biological systems have been extensively studied producing different and sometimes contradictory...
Despite All-trans retinoic acid (ATRA) has transformed acute promyelocytic leukemia (APL) from the most fatal to the most curable hematological cancer, there remains a clinical challenge that many hig...
Endothelial progenitor cells (EPCs) play a critical role in neovascularization, which enhances proliferation under all-trans retinoic acid (ATRA) treatment. However, the effects of ATRA on the skin fl...
Hematopoietic stem cells (HSCs) are multipotent cells responsible for the maintenance of the hematopoietic system throughout life. Dysregulation of the balance between HSC self-renewal, death and diff...
A cytochrome P450 enzyme that resides in the ENDOPLASMIC RETICULUM. It catalyzes the conversion of trans-RETINOIC ACID to 4-hydroxyretinoic acid.
An important regulator of GENE EXPRESSION during growth and development, and in NEOPLASMS. Tretinoin, also known as retinoic acid and derived from maternal VITAMIN A, is essential for normal GROWTH; and EMBRYONIC DEVELOPMENT. An excess of tretinoin can be teratogenic. It is used in the treatment of PSORIASIS; ACNE VULGARIS; and several other SKIN DISEASES. It has also been approved for use in promyelocytic leukemia (LEUKEMIA, PROMYELOCYTIC, ACUTE).
Proteins in the nucleus or cytoplasm that specifically bind RETINOIC ACID or RETINOL and trigger changes in the behavior of cells. Retinoic acid receptors, like steroid receptors, are ligand-activated transcription regulators. Several types have been recognized.
A subtype of RETINOIC ACID RECEPTORS that are specific for 9-cis-retinoic acid which function as nuclear TRANSCRIPTION FACTORS that regulate multiple signalling pathways.
A rare acute myeloid leukemia characterized by abnormal EOSINOPHILS in the bone marrow.
Osteoporosis is a disease in which the bones become extremely porous, are subject to fracture, and heal slowly, occurring especially in women following menopause and often leading to curvature of the spine from vertebral collapse. Follow and track&n...
