Primary objectives: To evaluate the efficacy and toxicity of a risk-adapted protocol that use idarubicin for induction and consolidation therapy in patients with APL. To evaluate the impact of mitoxantrone reduction on the event-free, disease-free, and overall survival, as well as on the duration of remission and cumulative incidence of relapse in low- and intermediate-risk patients with APL. To evaluate the impact of the addition of ara-C to idarubicin courses of consolidation for high-risk patients (administered as in the original GIMEMA protocols) on the event-free, disease-free, and overall survival, as well as on the duration of remission and cumulative incidence of relapse. To evaluate the toxicity of the induction, consolidation, and maintenance chemotherapy in the whole series and in each treatment group in patients with APL.
