The overall remission (OR) rate (Complete Remission [CR] + CR in the absence of total platelet recovery [CRp]) was evaluated. CR was defined as no evidence of circulating blasts or extramedullary disease, an M1 bone marrow ( ≤ 5% blasts), and recovery of peripheral counts [platelets ≥ 100 x 10 9/ L and absolute neutrophil count (ANC) ≥ x 10 9/ L]. CRp was defined as meeting all criteria for CR except for recovery of platelet counts to ≥ 100 x 10 9/ L. Partial Response (PR) was also determined, defined as complete disappearance of circulating blasts, an M2 bone marrow ( ≥ 5% and ≤ 25% blasts), and appearance of normal progenitor cells or an M1 marrow that did not qualify for CR or CRp. Duration of remission was also evaluated. Transplantation rate was not a study endpoint.
