RATIONALE: GTI-2040 may stop the growth of cancer cells by blocking the enzymes necessary for cancer cell growth. Drugs used in chemotherapy, such as cytarabine, use different ways to stop cancer cells from dividing so they stop growing or die. Giving GTI-2040 together with cytarabine may kill more cancer cells.
PURPOSE: This phase I trial is studying the side effects and best dose of GTI-2040 and high-dose cytarabine in treating patients with refractory or relapsed acute myeloid leukemia.
- Determine the maximum tolerated dose and recommended phase II dose of GTI-2040 and high-dose cytarabine in patients with relapsed or refractory acute myeloid leukemia.
- Determine the therapeutic response in patients treated with this regimen.
- Determine the pharmacokinetics of this regimen in these patients.
OUTLINE: This is a dose-escalation study. Patients are stratified according to age (under age 60 vs age 60 and over). Patients are assigned to 1 of 2 strata.
- Stratum I (under age 60): Patients receive GTI-2040 IV continuously on days 1-6 and high-dose cytarabine IV over 2 hours twice daily on days 2, 4, and 6.
- Stratum II (age 60 and over): Patients receive GTI-2040 IV continuously on days 1-6 and high-dose cytarabine IV over 4 hours once daily on days 2-6.
In both strata, treatment continues in the absence of unacceptable toxicity.
Cohorts of 3-6 patients per stratum receive escalating doses of GTI-2040 and high-dose cytarabine 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.
PROJECTED ACCRUAL: A total of 6-51 patients will be accrued for this study within 2-16 months.
Primary Purpose: Treatment

This is a Phase II trial conducted at multiple centers for evaluation of the pharmacodynamic activity and the overall response rate contributed by the combination agents of GTI-2040 and Hi...
RATIONALE: Drugs used in chemotherapy, such as GTI-2040, work in different ways to stop the growth of cancer or abnormal cells, either by killing the cells or by stopping them from dividin...
The purpose of this study is to test the safety and effectiveness of combining a drug known as Lovastatin to the chemotherapy drug cytarabine. Lovastatin is currently used to lower blood ...
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...
This study will compare the overall survival (OS) between treatment groups of patients treated with vosaroxin and cytarabine versus patients treated with placebo and cytarabine.
The combination of intermediate-dose cytarabine plus mitoxantrone (IMA) can induce high complete remission rates with acceptable toxicity in elderly patients with acute myeloid leukemia (AML). We pres...
The incidence of cytarabine-induced pericarditis is rare. So far, only a few cases have been reported worldwide.
The current standard of care for the treatment of patients with newly diagnosed acute myeloid leukemia (AML) is an anthracycline plus cytarabine. Both anthracyclines and cytarabine have been associate...
We previously reported that the anti-malarial drug quinacrine has potential to be repositioned for treatment of acute myeloid leukemia (AML). As a next step towards clinical use, we assessed the effic...
This retrospective analysis compared anthracyclines (as part of an induction regimen) in 128 newly diagnosed FLT3-ITD-mutated AML patients. Induction regimens comprised high-dose daunorubicin (HD-DN; ...
A pyrimidine nucleoside analog that is used mainly in the treatment of leukemia, especially acute non-lymphoblastic leukemia. Cytarabine is an antimetabolite antineoplastic agent that inhibits the synthesis of DNA. Its actions are specific for the S phase of the cell cycle. It also has antiviral and immunosuppressant properties. (From Martindale, The Extra Pharmacopoeia, 30th ed, p472)
Congener of CYTARABINE that is metabolized to cytarabine and thereby maintains a more constant antineoplastic action.
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.
