TRIAL Relapsed AML 2001/01: a randomised phase III study on the treatment of children and adolescents with refractory or relapsed acute myeloid leukaemia (AML)
DOI 10.1186/ISRCTN94206677
ClinicalTrials.gov identifier
EudraCT number
Public title TRIAL Relapsed AML 2001/01: a randomised phase III study on the treatment of children and adolescents with refractory or relapsed acute myeloid leukaemia (AML)
Scientific title
Acronym Relapsed AML 2001/01
Serial number at source NTR136
Study hypothesis Addition of liposomal daunorubicin (DaunoXome®) to fludarabine, ara-C and granulocyte colony-stimulating factor (G-CSF) (FLAG) in the first reinduction course will result in improved treatment response with acceptable toxicity and without increased cardiotoxicity.

Patient information material
Target number of participants 400
Interventions Addition of liposomal daunorubicin (DaunoXome®) to FLAG in reinduction course I.
Primary outcome measure(s) Percentage of BM blasts greater than 20% after course I, determined 4 - 6 weeks after the start.
Secondary outcome measure(s) 1. Toxicity, focusing on but not limited to bone marrow aplasia, mucosal toxicity and cardiotoxicity
2. Efficacy as determined by day 14 BM blasts, time to PB clearance of blasts, CR rate after two courses of chemotherapy, % of patients that underwent SCT, overall survival, event-free survival and disease-free survival
3. Clinical and cell biological features, and overall outcome of the entire cohort of patients with relapsed AML that has been registered in the time period of patient accrual (also including patients that were not treated according to this protocol)
