A Phase I/II Study of Azacitidine, Venetoclax, and Gilteritinib for Patients with Acute Myeloid Leukemia or High-Risk Myelodysplastic Syndrome with an Activating FLT3 Mutation
MD Anderson Study Status
Azacitidine, Gilteritinib, Venetoclax
This phase I/II trial studies the side effects and best dose of gilteritinib and to see how well it works in combination with azacitidine and venetoclax in treating patients with FLT3-mutation positive acute myeloid leukemia, chronic myelomonocytic leukemia, or high-risk myelodysplastic syndrome/myeloproliferative neoplasm that has come back (recurrent) or has not responded to treatment (refractory). 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. Gilteritinib may stop the growth of cancer cells by blocking some of the enzymes needed for cell growth. Giving azacitidine, venetoclax, and gilteritinib may work better compared to azacitidine and venetoclax alone in treating patients with acute myeloid leukemia, chronic myelomonocytic leukemia, or myelodysplastic syndrome/myeloproliferative neoplasm.
