Brief Summary:
Chemotherapy drugs use different ways to stop cancer cells from dividing so they stop growing or die. Zosuquidar may help daunorubicin and cytarabine kill more cancer cells by making cancer cells more sensitive to the drugs. It is not yet known whether daunorubicin and cytarabine are more effective with or without zosuquidar in treating acute myeloid leukemia.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Leukemia, Myeloid Drug: Zosuquidar Drug: Daunorubicin Drug: Cytarabine Phase 1 Phase 2

Detailed Description:


Phase I:

To Evaluate the safety of different doses of zosuquidar.

Phase II:

This study is designed to study the safety and effectiveness of zosuquidar when given with daunorubicin and cytarabine in newly diagnosed AML patients.
