Phase III, Multicenter, Randomized, Trial of CPX-351 (Cytarabine:Daunorubicin) Liposome Injection Versus Cytarabine and Daunorubicin in Patients 60-75 Years of Age With Untreated High Risk (Secondary) AML

The purpose of this study is to learn more about the experimental study drug, CPX-351, in patients who are newly diagnosed with high risk (secondary) Acute Myelogenous Leukemia (AML) and have not received any treatment for the disease. CPX-351 is a formulation of a fixed combination of the two anti-tumor drugs, cytarabine and daunorubicin

Stanford is not currently accepting new patients for this trial. You may want to check to see if other locations are recruiting.
