A PHASE IB/II STUDY TO EVALUATE THE SAFETY AND EFFICACY OF VISMODEGIB IN RELAPSED/REFRACTORY ACUTE MYELOGENOUS LEUKEMIA (AML) AND RELAPSED/REFRACTORY HIGH-RISK MYELODYSPLASTIC SYNDROME (MDS)
This study will assess the safety and efficacy of vismodegib in patients with relapsed/refractory acute myelogenous leukemia (AML) and relapsed/refractory high-risk myelodysplastic syndrome (MDS). Patients in Cohort 1 will receive single-agent vismodegib 150 mg orally daily. In Cohort 2, patients will receive vismodegib 150 mg orally daily in combination with cytarabine 20 mg subcutaneously for 10 days. Anticipated time on study treatment is until disease progression, intolerable toxicity, or patient withdrawal of consent.
Stanford is not currently accepting new patients for this trial. You may want to check clinicaltrials.gov to see if other locations are recruiting.
