Abstract Text Targeting aberrant tyrosine kinase activity may impact clinical outcome in acute myeloid leukemia (AML). We conducted a phase I study of the tyrosine kinase inhibitor midostaurin with bortezomib alone and in combination with chemotherapy in patients with AML. Patients on dose levels 1 and 2 (DL1 & 2) received midostaurin 50 mg bid and escalating doses of bortezomib (1 to 1.3 mg/m2). Patients on DL3 or higher received midostaurin and bortezomib following chemotherapy with mitoxantrone, etoposide, cytarabine (MEC). None of the patients enrolled to DL1 & 2 had dose-limiting toxicities (DLTs) or a clinical response. Among patients enrolled to DL3 or higher, DLTs were peripheral neuropathy, decrease in ejection fraction and diarrhea. A 56.5% CR rate and 82.5% overall response rate (CR + CR with incomplete neutrophil or platelet count recovery) were observed. The midostaurin/bortezomib/MEC combination is active in refractory/relapsed AML, but is associated with expected drug-related toxicities (NCT01174888).


  • Case insensitive filtering will display rows where any text in any cell matches the filter term
  • Simple literal full or partial string matches
  • Separate multiple filter terms with a spaces, order doesn't matter (a b c and c b a are equivalent )
  • Filtering will only apply to rows that are already loaded on the page, filtering has no impact on query parameters
  • Use quotes to match a longer phrase which contains spaces "mtor c1483f"


  • Generally, the default sort order for tables is set to be first column ascending, however, specific tables may set a different default sort order.
  • Click on any column header arrows to sort by that column
  • Hold down the Shift key and click multiple columns to sort by more than one column, be sure to set ascending or descending order for a given column, before moving on to the next column.
