Type: Drug study, Phase 3
16 Participants
This study will compare the effectivenses of an investigational drug called crenolanib with midostaurin (RYDAPT®). It will be used in newly diagnosed acute myeloid leukemia patients with FLT3 mutations.

“Acute myeloid leukemia” (AML) is a cancer of the white blood cells. “Mutations” occur when the genetic code is changed or damaged. “FLT3” is an abbreviation for the part of genetic code, also called a “gene” called “FMS-like Tyrosine Kinase 3”. The gene for FLT3 is changed from normal (mutated) in the leukemia cells of about 1 in 3 patients with acute myeloid leukemia.

Crenolanib is an investigational product, which means that it has not yet been approved by the FDA. Crenolanib is a pill that is taken by mouth three times a day. Crenolanib is a type of drug known as a Tyrosine Kinase Inhibitor (TKI). TKI is a pharmaceutical drug that inhibits tyrosine kinases, that is activated in cancer. This study is researching the potential of experimental crenolanib compared with midostaurin (RYDAPT®).
