The authors hypothesized that arsenic trioxide may augment the clinical activity of low-dose cytarabine in older patients with acute myeloid leukemia (AML), and they conducted a phase 1/2 study to determine the safety and efficacy of the combination. The results indicated that arsenic trioxide combined with low-dose cytarabine appeared to improve responses in elderly patients who had AML compared with either agent alone.
