Salsalate, Venetoclax, and Decitabine or Azacitidine for the Treatment of Acute Myeloid Leukemia or Advanced Myelodysplasia/Myeloproliferative Disease

Clinical Trial: NCT04146038

Purpose: 

This phase II trial studies the side effects of salsalate when added to venetoclax and decitabine or azacitidine in treating patients with acute myeloid leukemia or myelodysplasia/myeloproliferative disease that has spread to other places in the body (advanced). Drugs used in chemotherapy, such as salsalate, venetoclax, decitabine, and 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.

Study Date: 
Thu, 10/31/2019 to Sun, 05/22/2022
Bone Marrow Disease(s): 
  • acute myeloid leukemia (AML)
  • chronic myelomonocytic leukaemia (CMML)
  • myelodysplastic syndromes (MDS)
  • myeloproliferative neoplasms (MPN)
Intervention: 
CYCLE 1: Patients receive salsalate PO BID until completion of cycle 1. 24-48 hours later or concurrent with salsalate, patients begin to receive decitabine IV for 10 days or azacitidine IV for 7 days. Starting 24 hour after salsalate, patients also receive venetoclax PO continuously until completion of cycle 1. CYCLE 2: Patients receive decitabine IV for 5 days or azacitidine IV for 7 days, salsalate PO BID, and venetoclax PO continuously. Cycles repeat every 28 days in the absence of disease progression or unacceptable toxicity.
