Nintedanib, Idarubicin Hydrochloride, and Cytarabine in Treating Patients with Relapsed or Refractory Acute Myeloid Leukemia
This phase I / II trial studies the side effects of nintedanib, idarubicin hydrochloride, and cytarabine and to see how well they work in treating patients with acute myeloid leukemia that has come back or does not respond to treatment. Nintedanib may stop the growth of tumor cells by blocking the growth of new blood vessels necessary for tumor growth. Drugs used in chemotherapy, such as idarubicin hydrochloride and cytarabine, work in different ways to stop the growth of tumor cells, either by killing the cells, by stopping them from dividing, or by stopping them from spreading. Giving nintedanib, idarubicin hydrochloride, and cytarabine may work better in treating patients with acute myeloid leukemia.
