Cladribine Based Induction Therapy With All-Trans Retinoic Acid and Midostaurin in Relapsed/Refractory AML

2014-07-23 21:08:21 | BioPortfolio

Summary

This study will evaluate the investigational drug Midostaurin in various doses given with ATRA and CLAG chemotherapy. Midostaurin is a FLT3 inhibitor that is activated or overexpressed in a significant proportion of AML patients. Research has shown that midostaurin and drugs like midostaurin may work better in combination with chemotherapy, like CLAG. CLAG is a combination of cladribine, cytarabine, and G-CSF which is approved by the FDA and used to treat AML.

Description

The main purpose of this study is to gather information about the use of a drug called midostaurin when given with ATRA and CLAG chemotherapy. Midostaurin is an investigational drug. It is a drug that inhibits FLT3 that is mutated or overexpressed in a significant proportion of AML patients. Research has shown that midostaurin and drugs like midostaurin may work better in combination with chemotherapy, like CLAG. ATRA is known to promote myeloid differentiation and has also been shown to augment cancer cell death in combination with chemotherapy. CLAG is a combination of cladribine, cytarabine, and G-CSF which is approved by the FDA and used to treat AML. This study will look at how safe this combination is, how you tolerate the treatment, and to see what dose of midostaurin is appropriate.

ZYH005, a novel DNA intercalator, overcomes all-trans retinoic acid resistance in acute promyelocytic leukemia.

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...

Midostaurin in indolent systemic mastocytosis patients: an open-label phase 2 trial.

This is the first report on a trial using a Kit D816V targeting drug in indolent systemic mastocytosis. The results indicate midostaurin to be effective in reducing symptom severity and improving qual...

New synergistic combinations of differentiation-inducing agents in the treatment of acute promyelocytic leukemia cells.

Acute promyelocytic leukemia (APL) was considered to be one of the most lethal forms of leukemia in adults before the introduction of the vitamin A metabolite all-trans retinoic acid (ATRA). Surprisin...

The impact of oral arsenic and all-trans-retinoic acid on coagulopathy in acute promyelocytic leukemia.

The aim of our study was to evaluate the impact of oral arsenic (the realgar-indigo naturalis formula, RIF) and all-trans retinoic acid (ATRA) on coagulopathy in acute promyelocytic leukemia (APL) com...

Reduced RAR-β gene expression in Benzo(a)Pyrene induced lung cancer mice is upregulated by DOTAP lipo-ATRA treatment.

Molecular targeted therapy for specific genes is an emerging research. Retinoic Acid Receptor (RAR-β) is a key tumor suppressor which is found to be lost drastically during much cancer progression. W...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Form of leukemia characterized by an uncontrolled proliferation of the myeloid lineage and their precursors (MYELOID PROGENITOR CELLS) in the bone marrow and other sites.

Myeloid-lymphoid leukemia protein is a transcription factor that maintains high levels of HOMEOTIC GENE expression during development. The GENE for myeloid-lymphoid leukemia protein is commonly disrupted in LEUKEMIA and combines with over 40 partner genes to form FUSION ONCOGENE PROTEINS.

The phase of chronic myeloid leukemia following the chronic phase (LEUKEMIA, MYELOID, CHRONIC-PHASE), where there are increased systemic symptoms, worsening cytopenias, and refractory LEUKOCYTOSIS.

Clonal hematopoetic disorder caused by an acquired genetic defect in PLURIPOTENT STEM CELLS. It starts in MYELOID CELLS of the bone marrow, invades the blood and then other organs. The condition progresses from a stable, more indolent, chronic phase (LEUKEMIA, MYELOID, CHRONIC PHASE) lasting up to 7 years, to an advanced phase composed of an accelerated phase (LEUKEMIA, MYELOID, ACCELERATED PHASE) and BLAST CRISIS.

A pediatric acute myeloid leukemia involving both myeloid and monocytoid precursors. At least 20% of non-erythroid cells are of monocytic origin.
