This is a single-arm, single-site run-in phase (six subjects) followed by a multicenter continuation phase (114 subjects), Phase IV study. Eligible subjects will be receiving CPX-351 as their usual medical care administered according to FDA approval, as a condition for participation.


This is an open-label, non-randomized study of a non-drug intervention in subjects receiving CPX-351 as their usual medical care administered according to its FDA approval. The study intervention is the application of a prescribed outpatient care model, including a nurse teacher educational program and quality of life surveys for both subjects and caregivers, in subjects who meet medical and logistical criteria. Induction therapy and medical follow-up are performed without prophylactic admission to an inpatient facility.
