Status: Recruiting
Diagnosis: Leukemia/MDS
NCT ID: NCT01489722 (View complete trial on
DFCI Protocol ID: 11-461


The purpose of this open label study is to evaluate the safety, tolerability, pharmacokinetics, and efficacy of AZD1208 in patients with recurrent or refractory Acute Myelogenous Leukemia (AML). This study will have two parts. In Part A, patients will receive escalating doses to identify the maximum tolerated dose (MTD). In Part B, the efficacy of the maximum tolerated dose will be evaluated in a expanded group of patients with selected biomarker.
