This study was conducted to determine the efficacy and safety of DA-3030 (a recombinant methionyl human granulocyte colony-stimulating factor, rhG-CSF), after remission induction chemotherapy, in patients with acute myelogenous leukemia (AML).
After the remission induction chemotherapy, with idarubicin (12 mg/m2/day for 3 days) and cytarabine (200 mg/m2/day for 7 days), 26 patients with newly diagnosed AML were assigned to receive DA-3030 (200mug/m2/day), starting 24 hours after the completion of the remission induction chemotherapy, until their neutrophil count recovered to greater than 1, 000/muL for 3 consecutive days.
The median time from the initiation of the chemotherapy to the neutrophil recovery of 1, 000/muL was 21 days (range, 12~41). Treatment with DA-3030 was not associated with significant adverse side effects. The most frequently reported side effects were musculo-skeletal pain (13%) and headache (13%).
The DA-3030 is a safe rhG-CSF for the treatment of neutropenia after remission induction chemotherapy in patients with AML.
