A Phase III Randomized Study of Oral Sapacitabine in Elderly Patients with Newly Diagnosed Acute Myeloid Leukemia
This Phase 3 study assesses two drug regimens as the initial treatment of patients who are
at least 70 years of age and have newly diagnosed acute myeloid leukemia (AML) for whom the
doctor does not recommend the use of standard intensive treatment or the patient has decided
not to receive standard intensive treatment after being fully informed about its benefits
and risks by his/her doctor. The two drug regimens are sapacitabine administered in
alternating cycles with decitabine, or decitabine alone. The purpose of the study is to
learn which drug regimen is more likely to keep AML in check as long as possible.
