This phase Ib/II trial studies the effects of ASTX727 (decitabine and cedazuridine) in combination with venetoclax in treating patients with higher-risk acute myeloid leukemia patients who do not have a change in the gene called fms-like tyrosine kinase 3 (FLT3). Decitabine is in a class of medications called hypomethylation agents. It works by helping the bone marrow produce normal blood cells and by killing abnormal cells in the bone marrow. Cedazuridine is an enzyme inhibitor. It helps to increase the amount of decitabine in the body so that the medication will have a greater effect. Venetoclax is in a class of medications called B-cell lymphoma-2 (BCL-2) inhibitors. Venetoclax may stop the growth of cancer cells by blocking BCL-2, a protein needed for cancer cell survival. Venetoclax and decitabine are commonly given together for older patients with AML ASTX727 (a pill form of decitabine + cedazuridine) has been found to be equal to decitabine (given intravenously), and this part of the study is to confirm that venetoclax and ASTX727 is as safe as venetoclax and decitabine given intravenously. This study allows for lowering doses of study drugs to assure the dose chosen for the randomized study (second portion of this trial) is safe and tolerable for people. Giving ASTX727 in combination with venetoclax may help in the treatment of patients with higher-risk acute myeloid leukemia.
