NCT00372593 (Clinical Trial / Gemtuzumab Ozogamicin)

Study Title
Combination Chemotherapy With or Without Gemtuzumab in Treating Young Patients With Newly Diagnosed Acute Myeloid Leukemia (NCT00372593)

Trial Description
Drugs used in chemotherapy work in different ways to stop the growth of cancer cells, either by killing the cells or by stopping them from dividing. Monoclonal antibodies, such as the antibody-drug conjugate gemtuzumab ozogamicin (Mylotarg®; Pfizer/Wyeth-Ayerst Laboratories), can block cancer growth in different ways. Some block the ability of cancer cells to grow and spread. Others find cancer cells and help kill them or carry cancer-killing substances to them.

Giving combination chemotherapy together with gemtuzumab ozogamicin may kill more cancer cells. It is not yet known whether combination chemotherapy is more effective with or without gemtuzumab in treating patients with newly diagnosed acute myeloid leukemia.

This randomized phase III trial is studying combination chemotherapy and gemtuzumab ozogamicin to see how well they work compared with combination chemotherapy alone in treating young patients with newly diagnosed acute myeloid leukemia.

This trial is sponsored by Children’s Oncology GroupNational Cancer Institute (NCI). [1]
