Clofarabine Plus Cytarabine Versus Conventional Induction Therapy And A Study Of NK Cell Transplantation In Newly Diagnosed Acute Myeloid Leukemia
The purpose of this study is to see if we can improve the remission and survival rates for children with AML/MDS and the ways that fungal infections are diagnosed in patients withAML/MDS. We also will study the effects of clofarabine, sorafenib and valproic acid in high risk patients and how leukemia cells react to chemotherapy during treatment.
Stanford is currently accepting patients for this trial.
