AAML1831: A Phase 3 Randomized Trial for Patients with de novo AML Comparing Standard Therapy Including Gemtuzumab Ozogamicin (GO) to CPX-351 with GO, and the Addition of the FLT3 Inhibitor Gilteritinib for Patients with FLT3 Mutations


NCT Number:



Study Status:

Closed to Accrual, Study Active





This is a Phase 3 trial that will compare the efficacy of CPX-351 (a combination of 2 standard chemotherapy medicines - Daunorubicin and Cytarabine) compared to standard chemotherapy in the treatment of Acute Myelogenous Leukemia (AML). Patients will be randomly assigned by a computer to receive treatment with either CPX-351 treatment regimen or the standard chemotherapy regimen. In addition, if testing shows that a patient's AML has a specific gene change (FLT3), then those patients will be offered treatment with a new medicine (Gilteritinib) that targets the FLT3 gene change. For all patients who meet High risk criteria, they will be offered bone marrow transplant.

A complete blood count (CBC) of at least 1,000/uL circulating leukemic cells if a bone marrow aspirate or biopsy cannot be performed
  • Patient must also meet all eligibility criteria as outlined in the study protocol.
