RATIONALE: Drugs used in chemotherapy, such as flavopiridol, work in different ways to stop the growth of cancer cells, either by killing the cells or by stopping them from dividing.
PURPOSE: This phase I trial is studying the side effects and best dose of flavopiridol in treating patients with relapsed or refractory acute myeloid leukemia, acute lymphoblastic leukemia, or chronic myelogenous leukemia.
- Determine the maximum tolerated dose of flavopiridol in adult (stratum 1) and pediatric (stratum 2) patients with relapsed or refractory acute myeloid leukemia, acute lymphoblastic leukemia, or chronic myelogenous leukemia in blast crisis.
- Determine the qualitative and quantitative toxic effects of this drug, in terms of organ specificity, time course, predictability, and reversibility, in these patients.
- Determine, preliminarily, the clinical activity of this drug in these patients.
- Determine the plasma and cellular pharmacokinetics of this drug in these patients.
- Determine the pharmacodynamics of this drug in these patients.
- Correlate drug-induced apoptosis of acute leukemia cells in vitro with clinical response in patients treated with this drug.
- Correlate inflammatory cytokine levels with pharmacokinetics, pharmacodynamics, and laboratory and clinical parameters of treatment in patients treated with this drug.
OUTLINE: This is a dose-escalation study. Patients are stratified according to age group (adult [≥ 18 years] vs pediatric [1-17 years]).
Patients receive flavopiridol IV over 30 minutes followed by a 4-hour infusion on days 1-3. Treatment repeats every 21 days for up to 6 courses in the absence of unacceptable toxicity or disease progression.
Cohorts of 3-6 patients receive escalating doses of flavopiridol until the maximum tolerated dose (MTD) is determined. The MTD is defined as the dose preceding that at which 2 of 3 or 2 of 6 patients experience dose-limiting toxicity.
Patients are followed every 2 months for 1 year and then every 6 months for 4 years.
PROJECTED ACCRUAL: A total of 88 patients will be accrued for this study within 1-24 months.

This is a multicenter, open-label, study of alvocidib in previously treated chronic lymphocytic leukemia patients. Primary objective of the study is to determine overall response rate. T...
An open-label, dose-escalation study to assess the safety and pharmacokinetics (PK), to determine the dose limiting toxicity (DLT) and the recommended Phase 2 dose (RPTD), and to assess th...
This phase I trial studies the side effects and best dose of lenalidomide when given together with alvocidib in treating patients with relapsed or refractory B-cell chronic lymphocytic leu...
The purpose of this Phase I study is to determine the safety and tolerability including the maximum dose (MTD) and dose-limiting toxicities (DLTs) of alvocidib when administered over a ran...
More effective treatment options for elderly acute myeloid leukemia (AML) patients are needed as only 25-50% of patients respond to standard-of-care therapies, response duration is typically short, an...
Extracellular vesicles (EV) are nano-sized membrane enclosed vehicles that are involved in cell-to-cell communication and carry cargo that is representative of the parent cell. Recent studies have hig...
To report on a case of therapy-related acute monocytic leukemia(t-AML) with t(11;17) (q23;q21)/MLL-AF17q after successful treatment for acute promyelocytic leukemia(APL) with t(15;17) (q22;q21)/PML-RA...
Leukemia cutis is uncommon in patients with acute lymphoblastic leukemia. It typically presents with dermal papules or subcutaneous nodules, with no epidermal or upper papillary dermal involvement on ...
Measurable residual disease (MRD) has prognostic importance for patients with acute myeloid leukemia (AML). How leukemia providers incorporate MRD into routine practice remains undefined.
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.
