RATIONALE: Drugs used in chemotherapy, such as mitoxantrone hydrochloride, cytarabine, etoposide, and idarubicin, work in different ways to stop the growth of cancer cells, either by killing the cells or by stopping them from dividing. Everolimus may stop the growth of cancer cells by blocking some of the enzymes needed for cell growth and by blocking blood flow to the cancer. Giving everolimus together with combination chemotherapy may kill more cancer cells.
PURPOSE: This phase I trial is studying the side effects and best dose of everolimus when given together with mitoxantrone hydrochloride, cytarabine, etoposide, and idarubicin in treating older patients with newly diagnosed acute myeloid leukemia.
- To determine the maximum-tolerated dose of everolimus in combination with standard remission-induction therapy comprising mitoxantrone hydrochloride, cytarabine, and etoposide followed by consolidation therapy comprising idarubicin, cytarabine, and etoposide in older patients with newly diagnosed acute myeloid leukemia.
- To determine the safety profile of this regimen in these patients.
- To determine the anti-leukemic activity (complete remission rate [complete remission and complete remission with incomplete blood count recovery]) following one or two induction courses.
OUTLINE: This is a multicenter, dose-escalation study of everolimus.
- Standard remission-induction therapy: Patients receive mitoxantrone hydrochloride IV over 30 minutes on days 1, 3, and 5; cytarabine IV continuously on days 1-7; etoposide IV over 1 hour on days 1-3; and oral everolimus once a day on days 1-21. Patients with partial remission (PR) receive a second induction course, beginning 7-17 days after completion of induction course 1. Patients with complete remission or complete remission with incomplete blood count recovery (CR/CRi) after induction therapy proceed to consolidation therapy; patients who have failed to achieve PR after induction course 1 or a CR/CRi after induction course 2 are removed from study.
- Consolidation therapy: Beginning within 3 weeks from CR/CRi documentation, patients receive idarubicin IV over 30 minutes on days 1, 3, and 5; cytarabine IV continuously on days 1-5; etoposide IV over 1 hour on days 1-3; and oral everolimus once a day on days 1-10. Patients may receive another course of the consolidation therapy, beginning at least 4 weeks after initiation of consolidation therapy course 1.
After completion of study treatment, patients are followed up once a month for 1 year, every 3 months for 1 year, and then periodically thereafter.

Cytarabine is a conventionally used chemotherapeutic agent for treating acute myeloid leukemia (AML). However, chemoresistance, toxic side-effects and poor patient survival rates retard the efficacy o...
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)
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 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.
