The main objective of this study is to evaluate safety and efficacy of venetoclax in combination with azacitidine (AZA) compared to best supportive care (BSC) as maintenance therapy in adult participants with acute myeloid leukemia (AML) in first remission after conventional chemotherapy. This study takes place in 2 parts evaluating improvement in relapse-free survival (RFS): Part 1 (Dose confirmation) and Part 2 (Randomization). Part 2 begins after safety is assessed in Part 1 for approximately 4 weeks. During this study, participants will receive venetoclax and azacitidine or best supportive care for approximately 2 years with study visits varying from 1-5 per month.
