Phase I-II Study of Idarubicin, Cytarabine, and Sorafenib (BAY43-9006)
A primary goal of this clinical research study is to find the highest safe dose of sorafenib that can be given in combination with idarubicin and Ara-C for the treatment of acute myelogenous leukemia (AML) and high-risk, myelodysplastic syndrome (MDS).
Once the highest safe dose is found, researchers will then try to learn if this combination treatment can help control AML and high-risk MDS in newly diagnosed patients. The safety of this treatment combination will also be studied.

|Official Title:||Phase I-II Study of Idarubicin, Cytarabine, and Sorafenib (BAY43-9006), an Oral VEGF, RAF and FLT3 Inhibitor, in Patients With High-risk MDS and AML|
- Maximum Tolerated Dose (MTD) [ Time Frame: Twice a week for first two 28 day cycles ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]MTD is dose level where grade 3-4 sorafenib-attributable toxicity in <2 of 6 participants. Dose-Limiting Toxicity graded according to the NCI Common Toxicity Criteria version 3.0.
- Number of Participants With Complete Response [ Time Frame: Baseline to 2 years or disease progression. ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]Complete response was defined by the presence of < 5% blasts in the bone marrow (BM) with > 1 x 10^9/L platelets in the peripheral blood (PB).
