This phase I clinical trial is studying the side effects and best dose of azacitidine when given together with mitoxantrone, etoposide phosphate, and cytarabine in treating patients with relapsed or refractory acute myeloid leukemia. Azacitidine may stop the growth of cancer cells by blocking some of the enzymes needed for cell growth. Drugs used in chemotherapy, such as mitoxantrone, etoposide phosphate, and cytarabine, work in different ways to stop the growth of cancer cells, either by killing the cells or by stopping them from dividing. Azacitidine may help mitoxantrone, etoposide phosphate, and cytarabine work better by making cancer cells more sensitive to the drugs.
I. To determine the maximum-tolerated dose of azacitidine when combined with salvage chemotherapy comprising mitoxantrone hydrochloride, etoposide phosphate, and cytarabine (MEC) in patients with relapsed or refractory acute myeloid leukemia (AML).
I. To define the qualitative and quantitative toxicities of azacitidine in combination with MEC with regard to organ specificity, time course, predictability, and reversibility.
II. To document the rate of complete remission (CR) and CR with incomplete blood count recovery (CRi) in patients treated with this combination of agents.
III. To determine the overall survival, relapse-free survival, and event-free survival of patients treated with this combination of agents.
IV. To evaluate the pharmacokinetics of azacitidine when given in combination with MEC in patients enrolled on this study. (Exploratory) V. To measure R2 down regulation, including changes in R2 target, AraCTP, and dNTP/NTP pools, of azacitidine when given in combination with MEC and to correlate these pharmacodynamic endpoints with clinical response. (Exploratory) VI. To evaluate hypomethylation, including DMNT1 expression, Sp1 expression, global DNA methylation, gene expression profiling, and microRNA expression profiling, of azacitidine when given in combination with MEC and to correlate these pharmacodynamic changes with clinical response. (Exploratory)
OUTLINE: This is a dose-escalation study of azacitidine.
Patients receive azacitidine IV over 30 minutes on days 1-8 and mitoxantrone hydrochloride IV over 10 minutes, etoposide phosphate IV over 30-60 minutes, and cytarabine IV over 6 hours on days 3-8 in the absence of disease progression or unacceptable toxicity. Treatment may repeat every 8 days for 1 additional course. Blood and bone marrow samples are collected at baseline and periodically during study for pharmacokinetic and pharmacodynamic studies.
After completion of study therapy, patients are followed up for 30 days.

High-dose therapy with BEAC conditioning compared to BEAM conditioning prior to autologous stem cell transplantation for non-Hodgkin lymphoma: no differences in toxicity or outcome. A matched-control study of the EBMT-Lymphoma Working Party.
A recent shortage of melphalan has prompted the use of alternatives to BEAM (BCNU, Etoposide, Cytarabine, Melphalan) conditioning for autologous stem cell transplantion (ASCT). The BEAC (BCNU, Etoposi...
Azacitidine (AZA) is a nucleoside analog used for treatment of myelodysplasia and the prediction of AZA responsiveness is important for the therapy management.
Mitoxantrone has been used to treat patients with aggressive multiple sclerosis (MS) for decades. We aimed to describe the effectiveness and adverse events over 10 years post-mitoxantrone in relapsing...
A semisynthetic derivative of PODOPHYLLOTOXIN that exhibits antitumor activity. Etoposide inhibits DNA synthesis by forming a complex with topoisomerase II and DNA. This complex induces breaks in double stranded DNA and prevents repair by topoisomerase II binding. Accumulated breaks in DNA prevent entry into the mitotic phase of cell division, and lead to cell death. Etoposide acts primarily in the G2 and S phases of the cell cycle.
Congener of CYTARABINE that is metabolized to cytarabine and thereby maintains a more constant antineoplastic action.
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)
An anthracenedione-derived antineoplastic agent.
Body of knowledge related to the use of organisms, cells or cell-derived constituents for the purpose of developing products which are technically, scientifically and clinically useful. Alteration of biologic function at the molecular level (i.e., GENETIC ENGINEERING) is a central focus; laboratory methods used include TRANSFECTION and CLONING technologies, sequence and structure analysis algorithms, computer databases, and gene and protein structure function analysis and prediction.
In a clinical trial or interventional study, participants receive specific interventions according to the research plan or protocol created by the investigators. These interventions may be medical products, such as drugs or devices; procedures; or change...
