Bayard L. Powell, MD, Section Chief of Hematology and Oncology and Director of Leukemia Services at Wake Forest University Baptist Medical Center, discusses using the mitochondrial metabolism inhibitor CPI-613 in combination with high-dose cytarabine and mitoxantrone for relapsed or refractory acute myeloid leukemia (AML).

The results of the recent phase I study look promising. The combination has been effective, with 54% of patients showing a response and no increased toxicity occurring from the addition of CPI-613. The combination was particularly beneficial for patients over 60 and patients with poor risk cytogenetics, says Powell.
