Fludarabine, Cytarabine, Filgrastim and Idarubicin in Core Binding Factor (CBF) Leukemias
The goal of this clinical research study is to learn if idarubicin can be added to the combination of fludarabine, cytarabine, and Neupogen (Filgrastim) without increasing the risk of side effects. This study will also look at whether the addition of idarubicin will increase the long-term chances of patients remaining disease free.

Experimental: Fludarabine + Cytarabine + Idarubicin + G-CSF
G-CSF = Filgrastim or Neupogen
30 mg/m^2 intravenously days 1, 2, 3, 4, and 5 (infusion time approximately 30 minutes). Post-Remission Therapy will consist of 3 days rather than 5 days.
Other Name: Fludara®Drug: Cytarabine
2 g/m^2 intravenously over 4 hours daily days 1, 2, 3, 4, and 5; each infusion begins 3.5 hours after completion of that day's fludarabine infusion - Post-Remission Therapy will consist of 3 days rather than 5 days.
Other Names:Drug: G-CSF (Filgrastim, Neupogen)
5 mcg/kg body weight (rounded off to the nearest number) starting day-1 till recovery of absolute neutrophil count (ANC) to 1.0 x 109/L or above. (G-CSF will be started on day 2 for patients with presenting WBC count > 10 x 109/L. Post-Remission Therapy will consist of 4 days rather than 5 days.
Other Names:Drug: Idarubicin
6 mg/m2 by vein over 30 minutes to be given immediately after fludarabine administration on Days 3 and 4. Idarubicin will be administered as in induction cycle, in one post-remission cycle (from cycle 3-6). Idarubicin will be given immediately after fludarabine administration on Days 2 and 3.
Other Name: Idamycin
