Cellular ara-CTP pharmacokinetics, response, and karyotype in newly diagnosed acute myelogenous leukemia.


We evaluated relationships between ara-CTP pharmacokinetics in myeloblasts, response, and karyotype in 147 patients with newly diagnosed AML treated on three protocols each initiated by a 3 g/m2 ara-C dose given over 2 h. Area under the curve of ara-CTP concentration times time (AUC) or peak ara-CTP concentration after this dose did not predict response or… (More)
