Study Summary

This trial evaluates how two drugs, CPX-351 and enasidenib, work together to treat a type of leukemia. Together, they may be more effective than using just one.

Who is the study for?
This trial is for adults with acute myeloid leukemia (AML) that has returned after treatment. Participants must have an IDH2 gene mutation, be in relatively good health based on specific blood tests and organ function, and not have had certain other treatments or conditions that could interfere with the study.Check my eligibility
What is being tested?
The trial is testing a combination of two drugs: CPX-351 (a chemotherapy drug) and enasidenib mesylate (which blocks enzymes cancer cells need to grow). The goal is to see if using both drugs together works better than using them separately for treating AML with an IDH2 mutation.See study design
What are the potential side effects?
Potential side effects include typical chemotherapy-related issues like fatigue, nausea, hair loss, increased risk of infection due to low blood cell counts, liver problems indicated by elevated enzyme levels, as well as possible allergic reactions to the medications.

For what medical ailments is CPX-351, enasidenib mesylate prescribed?

"CPX-351, also known as enasidenib mesylate, is frequently prescribed to tackle infections. It has been demonstrated to be clinically effective for multiple myelocytic leukemias, meningeal leukemia and acute ureteric calculi."

Answered by AI

Are there multiple sites that oversee this research?

"This trial is being conducted across 4 sites: University of California San Francisco (San Francisco), UCLA / Jonsson Comprehensive Cancer Center (Los Angeles), and University of California San Diego (San Diego) as well as four other facilities."

Answered by AI

Have CPX-351 and enasidenib mesylate been trialed in other scientific experiments?

"Presently, there is a wealth of clinical trials focusing on Treatment (CPX-351, enasidenib mesylate), with 66 of them in the late stages phase 3. Out of the 13525 locations operating trials for this medication, some are located near Bronx, New york."

Answered by AI

Can applicants still join this experiment?

"According to clinicaltrials.gov, recruitment for this trial has already been completed. Initially posted on April 12th 2019 and last updated September 26th 2023, the study is no longer recruiting patients; however there are 1,708 other active trials seeking volunteers at present."

Answered by AI

To what extent can CPX-351, enasidenib mesylate be detrimental to patients?

"A score of 2 was assigned to Treatment (CPX-351, enasidenib mesylate) due to its Phase 2 nature; some safety data exists but efficacy is yet unconfirmed."

Answered by AI
