Differentiating agents + low-dose chemotherapy in the management of old/poor prognosis patients with acute myeloid leukemia or myelodysplastic syndrome.


13-cis retinoic acid + (OH)2 vitamin D3 + low-dose 6-thioguanine and cytarabine were tested in 26 patients with acute myeloid leukemia (AML) and in 4 patients with myelodysplastic syndrome (MDS) (median age 72.5), ineligible for standard chemotherapy. The response rate was 50%, with 27% complete remission. The median survival of the whole group and responders was 7.5 (1-47+) and 16.5 months (3.5-47+), respectively.
