A Phase 1b/2 Study of Pinometostat in Combination With Standard Induction Chemotherapy in Newly Diagnosed Acute Myeloid Leukemia With MLL Rearrangement


Leukemia, other

Phase I

What is the purpose of this trial?

This phase Ib/II trial studies the side effects and best dose of pinometostat and how well it works with standard chemotherapy in treating patients with newly diagnosed acute myeloid leukemia and a type of genetic mutation called MLL gene rearrangement. Pinometostat may stop the growth of cancer cells by blocking some of the enzymes needed for cell growth. Drugs used in standard chemotherapy, such as daunorubicin hydrochloride and cytarabine, work in different ways to stop the growth of cancer cells, either by killing the cells, by stopping them from dividing, or by stopping them from spreading. Giving pinometostat with standard chemotherapy may work better at treating acute myeloid leukemia.
