Short Title AMLSG 15-10
Id KN/ELN LN_AMLSGU_2011_399
Trialgroup AMLSG Ulm
Type of Trial multicentric, randomized, open-label
Phase Phase III
Disease Acute myeloid leukemia(AML) AML all subtypes without FAB M3
Stage of Disease de novo/non-treated - Therapy concepts for specific genotypes - >= 60 years
Molecular Marker NPM1
  • Evaluation of overall survival after treatment with low-dose cytarabine and etoposide with or without all-trans retinoic acid (ATRA) in patients with acute myeloid leukemia (AML) and nucleophosmin-1 (NPM1) mutation ineligible for intensive treatment
  • Evaluation of efficacy based on complete remission (CR) rates, event-free survival (EFS), and cumulative incidences of relapse and deaths in CR
Inclusion Criteria
  • Patients with confirmed diagnosis of acute myeloid leukemia according to the World Health Organization (WHO) classification (including de novo AML, t-AML and s-AML)
  • Presence of NPM1 mutation as assessed in one of the central AMLSG reference laboratories.
  • Age > 60 years. There is no upper age limit.
  • No prior chemotherapy for leukemia except hydroxyurea to control hyperleukocytosis if needed for up to 10 days during the diagnostic screening phase.
  • Signed written informed consent
  • Men must give their informed consent that they do not father a baby and must use a latex condom during any sexual contact with women of childbearing potential, even if they have undergone a successful vasectomy while on therapy and for 3 month after the last dose of chemotherapy.
  • WHO performance status ≤ 3
  • Patients not eligible for intensive chemotherapy according to at least one of the following criteria
  • - HCT-CI Score >2 (see Appendix F)
  • - Patient¡¯s decision
  • - age ≥ 75 years
Exclusion Criteria
  • All other AML subtypes, in particular those AML with other recurrent genetic changes (according to WHO 2008):
  • - AML with t(8;21)(q22;q22); RUNX1-RUNX1T1
  • - AML with inv(16)(p13.1q22) or t(16;16)(p13.1;q22); CBFB-MYH11
  • - AML with t(15;17)(q22;q12); PML-RARA (or other translocations involving RARA)
  • - AML with t(9;11)(p22;q23); MLLT3-MLL (or other translocations involving MLL)
  • - AML with t(6;9)(p23;q34); DEK-NUP214
  • - AML with inv(3)(q21q26.2) or t(3;3)(q21;q26.2); RPN1-EVI1
  • No consent for registration, storage and processing of the individual diseasecharacteristics and course as well as information of the family physician and all other treating physicians about study participation
  • Bleeding disorder independent of leukemia
  • Uncontrolled infection
  • Known positive for HIV, HBV or HCV
  • Organ insufficiency (creatinine >1.5x upper normal serum level; bilirubin, AST or ALP >2.5x upper normal serum level, not attributable to AML; heart failure NYHA III/IV; severe obstructive or restrictive ventilation disorder)
  • Severe neurological or psychiatric disorder interfering with ability of giving an informed consent
  • Patients with a ¡°currently active¡± second malignancy other than non-melanoma skin cancers. Patients are not considered to have a ¡°currently active¡± malignancy if they have completed therapy and are considered by their physician to be at less than 30% risk of relapse within one year.
