This study is for patients that have been diagnosed with Acute Myeloid Leukemia. The investigational drug used in this study is Uproleselan. The purpose of this study is to compare the event-free survival (EFS) of daunorubicin, cytarabine plus uproleselan versus daunorubicin and cytarabine in subjects ≥ age 60 with previously untreated acute myeloid leukemia. Participants can expect to receive treatment for up to 5 months and followed for up to 5 years after study completion.
This study is for adult male and female patients with previously untreated acute myeloid leukemia (AML). The purpose of this study is to compare the effects, good and/or bad of three drug combinations. The first combination is the standard treatment of daunorubicin plus AraC. The second combination is another standard treatment of idarubicin plus AraC. The third combination will add the drug vorinostat to the standard IA therapy. The study team wants to see if the study treatments will get rid of leukemia cells and keep them from coming back for patients who may benefit from stem cell transplant. They also want to find stem cell transplant donors for patients who might benefit from a transplant according to standard practice, beginning at the time patients register for the study. Participants will be asked to take induction treatment for 1-2 months. If a participant gets consolidation, it could take from 1-4 months. Participants may go on to transplant any time in the next year after he/she goes into remission. After participants are finished with the study treatment, the study doctor will ask them to visit the office for follow-up exams for at least 5 years from the time they go into remission.
The primary purposes of this study are to:
•Provide access to cord blood units for recipients whose best choice for a cord blood unit(s) do not meet all FDA standards, but do meet standards set by the NMDP on this study.
•Assess how well and how quickly blood counts return to normal after transplant in recipients on this study.
