In this 123 patient study, one-third of the patients receive the current standard treatment (low-dose cytarabine) and two-thirds receive low-dose cytarabine plus GRASPA®. The study was initiated in March 2013 and is performed in collaboration with Orphan Europe (Recordati Group), ERYTECH’s partner for the commercialization of GRASPA® in 38 European countries.
