RATIONALE: Monoclonal antibodies such as bevacizumab can locate cancer cells and either kill them or deliver cancer-killing substances to them without harming normal cells. Combining monoclonal antibody therapy with chemotherapy may be an effective treatment for hematologic cancer.
PURPOSE: Phase II trial to study the effectiveness of bevacizumab combined with cytarabine and mitoxantrone in treating patients who have hematologic cancer.
- Determine the clinical effectiveness of bevacizumab, cytarabine, and mitoxantrone in patients with poor-risk hematologic malignancies.
- Determine the toxic effects of this regimen in these patients.
- Determine whether this regimen can induce cell apoptosis in these patients.
- Determine the effects of bevacizumab on coagulation profiles in these patients.
OUTLINE: This is a multicenter study.
Patients receive cytarabine IV continuously over 72 hours on days 1-3, mitoxantrone IV over 30-60 minutes on day 4, and bevacizumab IV over 90 minutes on day 8 in the absence of disease progression or unacceptable toxicity. Patients achieving partial or complete remission may receive a second course of therapy beginning approximately 30 days after the completion of the first course.
Patients are followed until death.
PROJECTED ACCRUAL: A total of 12-45 patients will be accrued for this study within 1-3 years.
Primary Purpose: Treatment

Decitabine, Filgrastim, Cladribine, Cytarabine, and Mitoxantrone Hydrochloride in Treating Patients With Newly Diagnosed, Relapsed, or Refractory Acute Myeloid Leukemia or High-Risk Myelodysplastic Syndrome
This randomized phase I trial studies the side effects and best dose of decitabine when given together with filgrastim, cladribine, cytarabine, and mitoxantrone hydrochloride in treating p...

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...
t(12;22)(p13;q12) is a rare but recurrent chromosomal abnormality involving the ETS transcription factor ETV6 and meningioma 1 (MN1) genes. In this study, we analyzed the clinical, cytogenetic, and mo...
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 nitrogen mustard compound that functions as an ALKYLATING ANTINEOPLASTIC AGENT and is used in the treatment of CHRONIC LYMPHOCYTIC LEUKEMIA and NON-HODGKIN'S LYMPHOMA.
An anthracenedione-derived antineoplastic agent.
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.
Cancer is not just one disease but many diseases. There are more than 100 different types of cancer. Most cancers are named for the organ or type of cell in which they start - for example, cancer that begins in the colon is called colon cancer; cancer th...
