Trial Description

A phase III randomized multi-center study designed to compare the efficacy of crenolanib with
that of midostaurin when administered following induction chemotherapy, consolidation
chemotherapy and bone marrow transplantation in newly diagnosed AML subjects with FLT3
mutation. About 510 subjects will be randomized in a 1:1 ratio to receive either crenolanib
in addition to standard first line treatment of AML (chemotherapy and if eligible,
transplantation) (arm A) or midostaurin and standard treatment (arm B). Potentially eligible
subjects will be registered and tested for the presence of FLT3 mutation. Once the FLT3
mutation status is confirmed and additional eligibility is established, subject will be
randomized and enter into the treatment phase.
