Pomalidomide After Combination Chemotherapy in Treating Patients With Newly Diagnosed Acute Myeloid Leukemia or High-Risk Myelodysplastic Syndrome

Purpose: 

This phase I trial studies the side effects and best dose of pomalidomide after combination chemotherapy in treating patients with newly diagnosed acute myeloid leukemia or high-risk myelodysplastic syndrome. Drugs used in chemotherapy, such as cytarabine, daunorubicin hydrochloride, and etoposide, 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. Pomalidomide may kill cancer cells by stopping blood flow to the cancer and by stimulating white blood cells to kill cancer cells. Giving more than one drug (combination chemotherapy) and pomalidomide may kill more cancer cells.
