The main objective of this study is to assess the biological activity of elacytarabine in combination with idarubicin in patients with acute myeloid leukaemia who has failed the first course of a remission-induction treatment with cytarabine (ara-C). In addition, the correlation between hENT1 (human equilibrative nucleoside transporter 1) and overall survival will be studied.
Elacytarabine (CP-4055) is a pro-drug of ara-C currently used in the treatment of patients with acute myeloid leukaemia. Patients with nucleoside transporter deficiency (hENT1) seem to have less benefit from cytarabine compared to those with a high expression of the transporter. Preclinical studies indicate that elacytarabine is independent of this transporter. Therefore, patients with low expression of hENT1 and treated with elacytarabine are anticipated to have a better outcome compared to patients treated with ara-C. The main objective of this study is to assess the biological activity of elacytarabine in combination with idarubicin in patients with acute myeloid leukaemia. In addition, the correlation between hENT1 (human equilibrative nucleoside transporter 1) and overall survival will be studied. Patients will be treated with elacytarabine plus idarubicin independent of their hENT1 status. Determination of the patients' hENT1 expression level will be done retrospectively. This study will also explore the safety profile of elacytarabine in combination with idarubicin.

Acute myeloid leukemia (AML) is a highly heterogeneous disease. MicroRNAs function as important biomarkers in the clinical prognosis of AML.
A pediatric acute myeloid leukemia involving both myeloid and monocytoid precursors. At least 20% of non-erythroid cells are of monocytic origin.
A rare acute myeloid leukemia characterized by abnormal EOSINOPHILS in the bone marrow.
