This is a Phase I, open-label, multi-center, dose-escalation study of lenalidomide in adult patients with newly diagnosed, relapsed or refractory acute myeloid leukemia. All patients will receive lenalidomide per oral daily (starting dose is 25 mg/d). Cohorts of 3 patients (to be expanded up to 6 if 1 dose-limiting toxicity (DLT) is observed among the first 3 patients) will be sequentially allotted to progressively higher dose levels of lenalidomide on the basis of the presence and severity of lenalidomide-related toxicity or lenalidomide related serious adverse reactions encountered in the first cycle. For the purpose of this study, patients' enrollment will continue until the maximum tolerated dose (MTD) will be determined and characterized.

RATIONALE: Biological therapies, such as lenalidomide, may stimulate the immune system in different ways and stop cancer cells from growing. PURPOSE: This phase II trial is studying how w...
Determine toxicity and remission rates of treatment with azacitidine and lenalidomide for patients with Acute Myeloid Leukemia
This phase I trial studies the side effects and best dose of lenalidomide when given together with cytarabine and idarubicin in treating patients with acute myeloid leukemia. Biological th...
The study aims to comprehensively analyze data from a large and unselected older AML population in the US, both treated and untreated. These data will widen understanding of treatment deci...
The goal of this clinical research study is learn if Revlimid® (lenalidomide) can help to keep AML patients in remission. The safety of this drug will also be studied.
Philadelphia chromosome positive acute myeloid leukemia (Ph+ AML) is a rare subtype of AML that is now included as a provisional entity in the 2016 revised WHO classification of myeloid malignancies. ...
Exposures to DNA-damaging drugs and ionizing radiations increase risks of acute myeloid leukemia (AML) and myelodysplastic syndrome (MDS).
Among 235 children with acute myeloid leukemia, 17 experienced 19 perianal infections. Among 12 episodes with definite abscess, 75% were severely neutropenic. Sixteen diagnostic imaging evaluations we...
Identifying and targeting oncogenic fusion genes have revolutionized the treatment of leukemia, such as PML-RARα fusion gene in acute promyelocytic leukemia. Here we identified an intrachromosomal fu...
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.
An acute myeloid leukemia in which abnormal PROMYELOCYTES predominate. It is frequently associated with DISSEMINATED INTRAVASCULAR COAGULATION.
An acute leukemia exhibiting cell features characteristic of both the myeloid and lymphoid lineages and probably arising from MULTIPOTENT STEM CELLS.
Clonal expansion of myeloid blasts in bone marrow, blood, and other tissue. Myeloid leukemias develop from changes in cells that normally produce NEUTROPHILS; BASOPHILS; EOSINOPHILS; and MONOCYTES.
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...
