Acute myeloid leukemia (AML) is a clonal disease caused by genetic mutations in Hematopoietic stem progenitor cells. Unfortunately, advanced age (>60 years old) is considered to be one of the most important adverse prognostic factors for AML, and older patients are unable to tolerate high-dose chemotherapy, due to various complications and organ dysfunction. Based on the results of the previous research, we will carry out the pretreatment regimen of decitabine + cytarabine in elderly patients with AML who have achieved disease treatment through induction therapy, and continue the transplantation program of unrelated-blood cord blood. By assessing the patient's DFS,OS,RFS and safety to determine whether the regimen is suitable for the consolidation treatment of elderly acute myeloid leukemia, further clarify the efficacy of this regimen compared with traditional consolidation therapy, and initially confirm the effect of combined with unrelated cord blood transplantation in the treatment of acute myeloid leukemia.


A prospective,Multicenter,open,single-arm clinical study.The research process is divided into three phases: the screening phase, the treatment phase, and the follow-up phase. The treatment phase includes pre-transplant pretreatment, cord blood transplantation, and consolidation therapy.
