  Purpose

This phase II trial is studying the side effects and how well giving combination chemotherapy together with dasatinib works in treating patients with newly diagnosed acute myeloid leukemia. Drugs used in chemotherapy, such as daunorubicin hydrochloride and cytarabine, work in different ways to stop the growth of cancer cells, either by killing the cells or by stopping them from dividing. Dasatinib may stop the growth of cancer cells by blocking some of the enzymes needed for cell growth. Giving combination chemotherapy together with dasatinib may kill more cancer cells.

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • 30 Day Survival Rate [ Time Frame: 30 days ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Percentage of participants who were alive 30 days after starting induction treatment.


Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Event-free Survival [ Time Frame: Up to 10 years ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]

    Event free survival (EFS) is defined as the time from registration to failure to achieve complete remission (CR), relapse after CR is attained or death, whichever comes first. The median EFS with 95% CI was estimated using the Kaplan-Meier method,

    Complete remission (CR) is defined as: disappearance of all clinical and/or radiologic evidence of disease. Neutrophil count > 1.0 x 10^9/L and platelet count > 100 x 10^9/L, and normal bone marrow differential (< 5% blasts).


  • Complete Response Rate [ Time Frame: Up to 10 years ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]

    Percentage of participants who achieve a CR.

    CR is defined in the above outcome measure.


  • Cumulative Incidence of Relapse [ Time Frame: Up to 10 years ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Cumulative Incidence of Death [ Time Frame: Up to 10 years ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Disease-free Survival [ Time Frame: Up to 10 years ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Disease free survival (DFS) is defined as the time from achievement of CR to relapse or death, whichever comes first. The median DFS with 95% CI was estimated using the Kaplan-Meier method.

  • Overall Survival [ Time Frame: Up to 10 years ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Overall survival (OS) is defined as time from registration to death. The median OS with 95% CI was estimated using the Kaplan-Meier method.


Enrollment: 61
Study Start Date: December 2010
Primary Completion Date: July 2013 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Arms Assigned Interventions
Experimental: Treatment (daunorubicin hydrochloride, cytarabine, dasatinib)

INDUCTION THERAPY (course 1): Patients receive daunorubicin hydrochloride IV on days 1-3, cytarabine IV continuously over 168 hours on days 1-7, and dasatinib PO once daily on days 8-21. Patients with responsive disease on day 21 undergo consolidation therapy, and patients with non-responsive disease on day 21 (bone marrow cellularity ≥ 20 % and leukemia blasts ≥ 5%) receive a second course of induction therapy.

INDUCTION THERAPY (course 2): Patients receive daunorubicin hydrochloride IV on days 1-3, cytarabine IV continuously over 120 hours on days 1-5, and dasatinib PO once a day on days 6-19. Patients achieving complete response receive consolidation therapy.

CONSOLIDATION THERAPY: Patients receive high-dose cytarabine IV over 3 hours on days 1, 3, and 5, and dasatinib PO once daily on days 6-26. Treatment repeats every 28 days for 4 courses in the absence of disease progression or unacceptable toxicity. Patients in complete remission receive continuation therapy.

Detailed Description:

PRIMARY OBJECTIVES:

I. To assess the safety and tolerability of dasatinib with intensive induction therapy (daunorubicin hydrochloride and cytarabine), consolidation chemotherapy (high-dose cytarabine), and as single agent in maintenance therapy in patients with newly diagnosed core-binding factor acute myeloid leukemia (AML).

SECONDARY OBJECTIVES:

I. To assess clinical outcomes such as event-free survival (EFS), complete response rate (CR), cumulative incidence of relapse (CIR), cumulative incidence of death (CID), disease-free survival (DFS), and overall survival (OS) of patients treated with these regimens.

II. To describe the frequency and severity of adverse events of patients treated on this study during induction, consolidation, and continuation therapy.

III. To describe the interaction of pretreatment disease and patient characteristics including morphology, cytogenetics, immunophenotype, molecular genetic features, white blood cell count and hemogram, and performance status on clinical outcomes.

OUTLINE: This is a multicenter study.

INDUCTION THERAPY (course 1): Patients receive daunorubicin hydrochloride IV on days 1-3, cytarabine IV continuously over 168 hours on days 1-7, and dasatinib orally (PO) once daily on days 8-21. Patients with responsive disease on day 21 undergo consolidation therapy, and patients with non-responsive disease on day 21 (bone marrow cellularity ≥ 20 % and leukemia blasts ≥ 5%) receive a second course of induction therapy.

INDUCTION THERAPY (course 2): Patients receive daunorubicin hydrochloride IV on days 1-3, cytarabine IV continuously over 120 hours on days 1-5, and dasatinib PO once a day on days 6-19. Patients achieving complete response receive consolidation therapy.

CONSOLIDATION THERAPY: Patients receive high-dose cytarabine IV over 3 hours on days 1, 3, and 5, and dasatinib PO once daily on days 6-26. Treatment repeats every 28 days for 4 courses in the absence of disease progression or unacceptable toxicity. Patients in complete remission receive continuation therapy.

CONTINUATION THERAPY: Patients receive dasatinib PO on days 1-28. Treatment repeats every 28 days for 12 courses in the absence of disease progression or unacceptable toxicity.

After completion of study therapy, patients are followed up every 2 months for 2 years, every 3 months for 2 years, and then every year for a up to 10 years.
