A Phase III Randomized Trial for Patients with de novo AML using Bortezomib (IND# 58443, NSC# 681239) and Sorafenib (BAY 43-9006, IND# 69896, NSC# 724772) for Patients with High Allelic Ratio FLT3 ITD


Are you eligible to participate in this study?

You may be eligible for this study if you meet the following criteria:

  • Conditions: Acute Myeloid Leukemia
  • Gender: Male or Female

Inclusion Criteria:

  • Patients must be newly diagnosed with de novo acute myelogenous leukemia
  • Patients with previously untreated primary AML who meet the customary criteria for AML with ≥ 20% bone marrow blasts as set out in the 2008 World Health Organization (WHO) Myeloid Neoplasm Classification are eligible
    • Attempts to obtain bone marrow either by aspirate or biopsy must be made unless clinically prohibitive; in cases where it is clinically prohibitive, peripheral blood with an excess of 20% blasts and in which adequate flow cytometric and cytogenetics/fluorescent in situ hybridization (FISH) testing is feasible can be substituted for the marrow exam at diagnosis
  • Patients with > 20% bone marrow blasts are eligible if they have:
    • A karyotypic abnormality characteristic of de novo AML (t(8;21)(q22;q22), inv(16)(p13q22) or t(16;16)(p13;q22) or 11q23 abnormalities
    • The unequivocal presence of megakaryoblasts, or
    • Biopsy proven isolated myeloid sarcoma (myeloblastoma; chloroma, including leukemia cutis)
  • Patients with any performance status are eligible for enrollment
  • Prior therapy with hydroxyurea, all-trans retinoic acid (ATRA), corticosteroids (any route), and IT cytarabine given at diagnosis is allowed; hydroxyurea and ATRA must be discontinued prior to initiation of protocol therapy; patients who have previously received any other chemotherapy, radiation therapy or any other antileukemic therapy are not eligible for this protocol
Exclusion Criteria:
  • Patients with any of the following constitutional conditions are not eligible:
    • Fanconi anemia
    • Shwachman syndrome
    • Any other known bone marrow failure syndrome
    • Patients with constitutional trisomy 21 or with constitutional mosaicism of trisomy 21

    Note: enrollment may occur pending results of clinically indicated studies to exclude these conditions

  • Patients with any of the following oncologic diagnoses are not eligible:
    • Any concurrent malignancy
    • Juvenile myelomonocytic leukemia (JMML)
    • Philadelphia chromosome positive AML
    • Biphenotypic or bilineal acute leukemia
    • Acute promyelocytic leukemia
    • Acute myeloid leukemia arising from myelodysplasia
    • Therapy-related myeloid neoplasms Note: enrollment may occur pending results of clinically indicated studies to exclude these conditions
  • Pregnancy and breast feeding
  • Female patients who are pregnant are ineligible
  • Lactating females are not eligible unless they have agreed not to breastfeed their infants
  • Female patients of childbearing potential are not eligible unless a negative pregnancy test result has been obtained
  • Sexually active patients of reproductive potential are not eligible unless they have agreed to use an effective contraceptive method for the duration of their study participation
