In this randomized trial, patients in the chemotherapy-alone arm will receive placebo plus 1 of 2 chemotherapy regimens — mitoxantrone, etoposide, and cytarabine (MEC) or fludarabine, cytarabine, and idarubicin (FAI). Patients in the uproleselan arm will receive uproleselan in combination with MEC or FAI.

The primary endpoint is overall survival. Secondary endpoints include the rate of severe oral mucositis and overall response rate.

To be eligible for this study, patients must have a confirmed diagnosis of relapsed/refractory AML, be 18 to 75 years of age, and have no more than 1 prior stem cell transplant. For a complete list of eligibility criteria, please refer to the reference.
