The purpose of this study is to provide access to Midostaurin and gather additional safety data on the combination of Midostaurin and standard of care for adult patients with newly diagnosed Fms-like tyrosine kinase receptor (FLT3) mutated Acute Myeloid Leukemia (AML) who are eligible for standard induction and consolidation chemotherapy.

Official Title

An Open-label, Multi-center, Expanded Treatment Protocol of Midostaurin (PKC412) in Adult Patients With Newly Diagnosed Fms-like Tyrosine Kinase Receptor (FLT3) Mutated Acute Myeloid Leukemia (AML) Who Are Eligible for Standard Induction and Consolidation Chemotherapy.


The purpose of this study is to provide Midostaurin (study drug) treatment to newly diagnosed FLT3 mutated (ITD or TKD) AML adult patients (18 years or older) eligible for standard standard induction (cytarabine + daunorubicin/Idarubicin) and consolidation (cytarabine) chemotherapy.
