OUTLINE: This is a phase I, dose-escalation study of mitoxantrone and sorafenib tosylate followed by a phase II study.
INDUCTION: Patients receive mitoxantrone hydrochloride intravenously (IV) over 60 minutes on days 1-3 and sorafenib tosylate orally (PO) twice daily (BID) on days 10-19 in the absence of disease progression or unacceptable toxicity. Patients also receive filgrastim subcutaneously (SC) once daily (QD) on days 0-5, cladribine IV QD over 2 hours on days 1-5, and cytarabine IV QD over 2 hours on days 1-5 in the absence of disease progression or unacceptable toxicity. Patients achieving partial remission (including MRD positive [pos] CR, CR with incomplete platelet recovery [CRp], and CR with incomplete count recovery [CRi]) or persistent AML may receive up to 2 cycles of induction therapy per the discretion of the treating physician.
POST-REMISSION: Patients receive sorafenib tosylate PO BID on days 8-27 or 3 days prior to next cycle of treatment, whichever occurs first. Patients also receive filgrastim subcutaneously SC QD on days 0-5, cladribine IV QD over 2 hours on days 1-5, and cytarabine IV QD over 2 hours on days 1-5 in the absence of disease progression or unacceptable toxicity. Patients achieving MRDneg CR may receive up to 4 cycles of post-remission therapy. Patients achieving disease response (MRDpos CR, CRi/CRp, or persistent disease) may receive up to two induction cycles and 1 cycle of post-remission therapy with mitoxantrone hydrochloride omitted in cycle 3. If they then enter MRDneg CR, they can proceed with up to a total of 4 cycles of post-remission therapy.
MAINTENANCE THERAPY: Patients achieving MRDneg CR may receive maintenance therapy of sorafenib tosylate PO BID for up to 1 year.
After completion of study treatment, patients are followed up every 3 months for up to 5 years.
