A Phase I/II Study of Azacitidine, Venetoclax and Pevonedistat in Adults with Newly Diagnosed Secondary or Therapy-Related AML or Myelodyplastic Syndromes (MDS)
MD Anderson Study Status
Azacitidine, Pevonedistat, Venetoclax
This phase I/II trial studies the best dose of venetoclax when given together with azacitidine and pevonedistat and to see how well it works in treating patients with newly diagnosed acute myeloid leukemia. Drugs used in chemotherapy, such as azacitidine, work in different ways to stop the growth of cancer cells, either by killing the cells, by stopping them from dividing, or by stopping them from spreading. Venetoclax may stop the growth of cancer cells by blocking Bcl-2, a protein needed for cancer cell survival. Pevonedistat may stop the growth of cancer cells by blocking some of the enzymes needed for cell growth. Giving azacitidine, venetoclax, and pevonedistat may work better in treating patients with acute myeloid leukemia.
