Farhad Ravandi, MD, from the University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center, Houston, TX, provides an overview of the pilot Phase II study (NCT02464657) of cytarabine, idarubicin and the PD-1 inhibitor nivolumab for young patients with newly diagnosed acute myeloid leukemia (AML). Dr Ravandi highlights the early data, including response rates and follow-up data, suggesting that this therapeutic approach is feasible and warrants further evaluation in future studies.
