p53 status of newly established acute myeloid leukaemia cell lines. (1/5352)

We analysed the status of the p53 gene and protein in eight newly established acute myeloid leukaemia (AML) cell lines representing blast cells of either de novo leukaemia patients in first remission or patients with relapsed and chemotherapy-resistant disease causing their death. There were no mutations in the p53 gene in any of the cell lines as analysed by single-strand conformation polymorphism of amplified exons 5-8. However, the p53 protein was clearly and consistently expressed in all of these cell lines, as shown by immunohistochemistry, Western blotting and flow cytometry. The consistently expressed p53 protein was located in both the nucleus and the cytoplasm of all the cell lines and, as shown by flow cytometry, it was mostly in a conformation typical of the mutated protein. These AML cell lines offer a tool for studying the production and function of the p53 protein and its possible role in cell cycle regulation and chemoresistance as well as in the regulation of apoptosis in AML.  (+info)

Patterns of care and survival for adolescents and young adults with acute leukaemia--a population-based study. (2/5352)

We report a population-based study of patterns of care and survival for people with acute leukaemia diagnosed at age 15-29 years during 1984-94 in regions of England and Wales covered by specialist leukaemia registries. There were 879 patients: 417 with acute lymphoblastic leukaemia (ALL) and 462 with acute myeloid leukaemia (AML). For ALL, actuarial survival rates were 43% at 5 years after diagnosis and 37% at 10 years. Survival improved significantly between 1984-88 and 1989-94 for those aged 15-19 at diagnosis. Patients entered in national clinical trials and those not entered had similar survival rates. Survival rates were similar at teaching and non-teaching hospitals and at hospitals treating different numbers of study patients per year. For AML, survival rates were 42% at 5 years after diagnosis and 39% at 10 years. Survival improved significantly between 1984-88 and 1989-94. Patients entered in the Medical Research Council AML10 trial had a higher survival rate than those who were in the earlier AML9 trial. Survival did not vary with category of hospital. We conclude that survival has improved for adolescents and young adults with acute leukaemia but that there is at present no evidence that centralized treatment results in a survival benefit for patients in this age group.  (+info)

Toward a leukemia treatment strategy based on the probability of stem cell death: an essay in honor of Dr. Emil J Freireich. (3/5352)

Dr. Emil J Freireich is a pioneer in the rational treatment of cancer in general and leukemia in particular. This essay in his honor suggests that the cell kill concept of chemotherapy of acute myeloblastic leukemia be extended to include two additional ideas. The first concept is that leukemic blasts, like normal hemopoietic cells, are organized in hierarchies, headed by stem cells. In both normal and leukemic hemopoiesis, killing stem cells will destroy the system; furthermore, both normal and leukemic cells respond to regulators. It follows that acute myelogenous leukemia should be considered as a dependent neoplasm. The second concept is that cell/drug interaction should be considered as two phases. The first, or proximal phase, consists of the events that lead up to injury; the second, or distal phase, comprises the responses of the cell that contribute to either progression to apoptosis or recovery. Distal responses are described briefly. Regulated drug sensitivity is presented as an example of how distal responses might be used to improve treatment.  (+info)

Biallelic and heterozygous point mutations in the runt domain of the AML1/PEBP2alphaB gene associated with myeloblastic leukemias. (4/5352)

The AML1 gene encoding the DNA-binding alpha-subunit in the Runt domain family of heterodimeric transcription factors has been noted for its frequent involvement in chromosomal translocations associated with leukemia. Using reverse transcriptase-polymerase chain reaction (RT-PCR) combined with nonisotopic RNase cleavage assay (NIRCA), we found point mutations of the AML1 gene in 8 of 160 leukemia patients: silent mutations, heterozygous missense mutations, and biallelic nonsense or frameshift mutations in 2, 4, and 2 cases, respectively. The mutations were all clustered within the Runt domain. Missense mutations identified in 3 patients showed neither DNA binding nor transactivation, although being active in heterodimerization. These defective missense mutants may be relevant to the predisposition or progression of leukemia. On the other hand, the biallelic nonsense mutants encoding truncated AML1 proteins lost almost all functions examined and may play a role in leukemogenesis leading to acute myeloblastic leukemia.  (+info)

Cyclin A1 expression in leukemia and normal hematopoietic cells. (5/5352)

Human cyclin A1 is a newly cloned, tissue-specific cyclin that is prominently expressed in normal testis. In this study, we showed that cyclin A1 was highly expressed in a subset of leukemia samples from patients. The highest frequency of cyclin A1 overexpression was observed in acute myelocytic leukemias, especially those that were at the promyelocyte (M3) and myeloblast (M2) stages of development. Cyclin A1 expression was also detected in normal CD34(+) progenitor cells. The expression of cyclin A1 increased when these cells were stimulated to undergo myeloid differentiation in vitro. Taken together, our observations suggest that cyclin A1 may have a role in hematopoiesis. High levels of cyclin A1 expression are especially associated with certain leukemias blocked at the myeloblast and promyelocyte stages of differentiation.  (+info)

Pneumonia in febrile neutropenic patients and in bone marrow and blood stem-cell transplant recipients: use of high-resolution computed tomography. (6/5352)

PURPOSE: To obtain statistical data on the use of high-resolution computed tomography (HRCT) for early detection of pneumonia in febrile neutropenic patients with unknown focus of infection. MATERIALS AND METHODS: One hundred eighty-eight HRCT studies were performed prospectively in 112 neutropenic patients with fever of unknown origin persisting for more than 48 hours despite empiric antibiotic treatment. Fifty-four of these studies were performed in transplant recipients. All patients had normal chest roentgenograms. If pneumonia was detected by HRCT, guided bronchoalveolar lavage was recommended. Evidence of pneumonia on chest roentgenograms during follow-up and micro-organisms detected during follow-up were regarded as documentation of pneumonia. RESULTS: Of the 188 HRCT studies, 112 (60%) showed pneumonia and 76 were normal. Documentation of pneumonia was possible in 61 cases by chest roentgenography or micro-organism detection (54%) (P < 10(-6)). Sensitivity of HRCT was 87% (88% in transplant recipients), specificity was 57% (67%), and the negative predictive value was 88% (97%). A time gain of 5 days was achieved by the additional use of HRCT compared to an exclusive use of chest roentgenography. CONCLUSION: The high frequency of inflammatory pulmonary disease after a suspicious HRCT scan (> 50%) proves that pneumonia is not excluded by a normal chest roentgenogram. Given the significantly longer duration of febrile episodes in transplant recipients, HRCT findings are particularly relevant in this subgroup. Patients with normal HRCT scans, particularly transplant recipients, have a low risk of pneumonia during follow-up. All neutropenic patients with fever of unknown origin and normal chest roentgenograms should undergo HRCT.  (+info)

A novel ubiquitin-specific protease, UBP43, cloned from leukemia fusion protein AML1-ETO-expressing mice, functions in hematopoietic cell differentiation. (7/5352)

Using PCR-coupled subtractive screening-representational difference analysis, we have cloned a novel gene from AML1-ETO knockin mice. This gene is highly expressed in the yolk sac and fetal liver of the knockin mice. Nucleotide sequence analysis indicates that its cDNA contains an 1,107-bp open reading frame encoding a 368-amino-acid polypeptide. Further protein sequence and protein translation analysis shows that it belongs to a family of ubiquitin-specific proteases (UBP), and its molecular mass is 43 kDa. Therefore, we have named this gene UBP43. Like other ubiquitin proteases, the UBP43 protein has deubiquitinating enzyme activity. Protein ubiquitination has been implicated in many important cellular events. In wild-type adult mice, UBP43 is highly expressed in the thymus and in peritoneal macrophages. Among nine different murine hematopoietic cell lines analyzed, UBP43 expression is detectable only in cell lines related to the monocytic lineage. Furthermore, its expression is regulated during cytokine-induced monocytic cell differentiation. We have investigated its function in the hematopoietic myeloid cell line M1. UBP43 was introduced into M1 cells by retroviral gene transfer, and several high-expressing UBP43 clones were obtained for further study. Morphologic and cell surface marker examination of UBP43/M1 cells reveals that overexpression of UBP43 blocks cytokine-induced terminal differentiation of monocytic cells. These data suggest that UBP43 plays an important role in hematopoiesis by modulating either the ubiquitin-dependent proteolytic pathway or the ubiquitination state of another regulatory factor(s) during myeloid cell differentiation.  (+info)

Autologous blood stem cell transplantation for acute myeloblastic leukemia in first complete remission. Intensification therapy before transplantation does not prolong disease-free survival. (8/5352)

BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVE: To compare the clinical results of two consecutive therapeutic protocols including autologous blood stem cell transplantation (ABSCT) for patients with de novo acute myeloblastic leukemia (AML) in first complete remission (CR1). DESIGN AND METHODS: Between November 1989 and January 1997, 50 patients with AML in CR1 underwent ABSCT using two consecutive protocols. In the first one (Group A, 25 patients) peripheral blood stem cells (PBSC) were collected after induction and consolidation chemotherapy courses, and ABSCT was performed immediately thereafter. In the subsequent 25 patients (Group B), PBSC were collected after consolidation alone, and a further chemotherapy course with intermediate dose cytarabine (Ara-C 1 g/m2/12 h x3 days) and mitoxantrone (12 mg/m2/d x3 days) was administered as early intensification. The conditioning regimen consisted of busulfan (16 mg/kg) and cyclophosphamide (200 mg/kg) in every case. RESULTS: Hematopoietic engraftment was slightly quicker in Group B, with median times to reach 0.5 x 10(9) neutrophils/L and 20 x 10(9) platelets/L being 13 and 12 days in Group A and 12 and 11 days in Group B, respectively. There were three graft failures (8%) (2 in Group A and 1 in Group B) and three transplant-related deaths (8%) (2 in Group A and 1 in Group B). No significant differences were observed between the groups in terms of relapse (64% at 4-years in Group A and 81% in Group B). Likewise, the actuarial 4-year disease-free survival (DFS) was not significantly different between the two groups (32% v 18%). INTERPRETATION AND CONCLUSIONS: Our study confirms that AML patients in CR1 receiving ABSCT have rapid engraftment with low mortality. However, autologous transplants with PBSC collected after consolidation chemotherapy were still associated with a high rate of relapse (RR). This RR was not apparently reduced by the administration of intermediate dose Ara-C before transplantation.  (+info)

ISSN 1414-431X. http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0100-879X2001001000004.. Acute myelogenous leukemia (AML) blast cells show high-affinity degradation of low-density lipoprotein (LDL), suggesting an increased expression of cellular LDL receptors. LDE is a lipid microemulsion easily synthesized in vitro which is known to mimic the metabolic pathway of LDL. We used LDE as a carrier for daunorubicin and assayed the cytotoxicity of the complex using AML blast cells since RT-PCR analysis showed that AML cells express LDL receptor mRNA. The LDE:daunorubicin complex killed 46.7% of blast cells and 20.2% of normal bone marrow cells (P,0.001; Student t-test). Moreover, this complex destroyed AML blast cells as efficiently as free daunorubicin. Thus, LDE might be a suitable carrier of chemotherapeutic agents targeting these ...

Acute myelogenous leukemia is a very aggressive form of cancer and individuals diagnosed with the condition will need to begin medical treatment right away to avoid serious complications. Acute myelogenous leukemia is considered the most common type of leukemia in the country and responds well to treatment in the majority of cases. The goal of treatment is to bring the condition into remission for a long-term or permanent basis. There are several different treatments available for acute myelogenous leukemia and each one may be used in conjunction with others to ensure the best course of treatment for the individual affected.. The first step in the treatment of acute myelogenous leukemia is obtaining a positive diagnosis of the condition. There are several conditions that may mimic the symptoms of acute myelogenous leukemia and, since acute myelogenous leukemia is only one of many types of leukemia, the exact cause of the appearance of symptoms must be discovered in order to be able to treat the ...

Activating mutations of the FMS-like tyrosine kinase 3 gene (FLT3) occur in approximately one-third of patients with acute myeloid leukaemia (AML) and predict for a poor outcome. Heat shock protein 90 (Hsp90) is a molecular chaperone that is frequently used by cancer cells to stabilise mutant oncoproteins. Mutant FLT3 is chaperoned by Hsp90 in primary AML blasts whereas unmutated FLT3 is not, making Hsp90 inhibitors potentially useful therapeutically. The present study showed that inhibition of Hsp90 by 17- allylamino-17-demethoxygeldanamycin (17-AAG) was cytotoxic to primary AML cells expressing mutant FLT3. Inhibition of Hsp90 results in altered downstream signalling effects in primary AML cells with disruption of Janus kinase-signal transducer and activator of transcription (JAK-STAT), mitogen-activated protein kinase and phosphatidylinositol 3/AKT signalling pathways. Co-treatment of blasts with 17-AAG and cytarabine resulted in a synergistic or additive effect in approximately 50% of AML ...

Patients and methods: Three hundred and forty-five patients with de novo AML were retrospectively analyzed with regard to CEBPA mutations, clinical characteristics, therapeutic responses, and long-term outcomes. Results: CEBPA mutations were detected in 59 patients (17.10%), with 47 cases harboring double mutations and 12 cases harboring single mutations. In those with a normal karyotype (NK), 44 cases (25.29%) were detected with CEBPA mutations. The following characteristics were observed in CEBPA-mutated patients: most (66.10%) of them were M1 or M2; they presented with higher peripheral white blood
M2 is a subtype of AML (Acute Myeloid Leukemia). It is also known as Acute Myeloblastic Leukemia with Maturation. Acute myeloid leukemia (AML) is a type of cancer affecting blood cells that eventually develop into non-lymphocyte white blood cells. The disease originates from the bone marrow, the soft inner portion of select bones where blood stem cells develop into either lymphocyte or in this particular condition, myeloid cells. This acute disease prevents bone marrow cells from properly maturing, thus causing an accumulation of immature myeloblast cells in the bone marrow. Acute myeloid leukemia is more lethal than chronic myeloid leukemia, a disease that affects the same myeloid cells, but at a different pace. Many of the immature blast cells in acute myeloid leukemia have a higher loss of function and thus, a higher inability to carry out normal functions than those more developed immature myeloblast cells in chronic myeloid leukemia (ODonnell et al. 2012). Acute in acute myeloid leukemia ...

BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVE: Tumor necrosis factor-a plays an important role in hematopoiesis. Its effects are mediated through two membrane-bound receptors: TNF-R I (p55; CD 120a) and TNF-R II (p75; CD 120b). The aim of our study was to investigate the relative roles of these receptors. DESIGN AND METHODS: We analyzed in 16 acute myeloid leukemia cases whether TNF-alpha could induce in vitro maturation and apoptosis. We then investigated which of the two receptors was provoking monocytic maturation and which was responsible for apoptosis by using the agonistic MoAb HTR-9, directed at CD120a, and the CD120b antagonistic MoAb UTR-1. RESULTS: Monocytic maturation (morphologic and immunologic) was induced in all cases studied, although to different rates, by TNF-alpha and by HTR-9 incubation. The addition of UTR-1 to TNF-alpha did not abolish maturation, nor did it affect apoptosis, which was present in primary AML cultures after 4 and 10 days. INTERPRETATION AND CONCLUSIONS: We present here evidence ...

Disease relapse is the most common cause of death after allogeneic stem cell transplantation for acute myeloid leukemia. Patients at high risk for relapse may benefit from a novel, biologically rational therapeutic intervention to prevent this outcome. PF-04449913 is a small molecule inhibitor of the hedgehog (Hh) pathway that inhibits the protein Smoothened (SMO). Aberrant Hh signaling may contribute to the survival and expansion of the leukemia stem cell, and inhibiting the Hh pathway can eliminate these cells. Therefore, targeting Hh may be a logical intervention in the post-transplantation setting for those with high risk of relapse. The investigators propose a phase 2 study of PF-04449913 in patients with acute myeloid leukemia who have received an allogeneic stem cell transplantation and are at high risk of relapse.. This is an open label, phase 2 study employing PF-04449913 in acute myeloid leukemia patients who received an allogeneic stem cell transplantation and are at high risk of ...

OBJECTIVE: To elucidate the regulatory effect of microRNA-34b on the occurrence of pediatric acute myeloid leukemia and the underlying mechanism. PATIENTS
This is a prospective, non-therapeutic study, assessing the significance of minimal residual disease (MRD) at three different time points in relation to allogeneic HCT for pediatric AML. The study is a collaboration between the Pediatric Blood and Marrow Transplant Consortium (PBMTC) and the Resource for Clinical Investigations in Blood and Marrow Transplantation (RCI-BMT) of the Center for International Blood and Marrow Transplant Research (CIBMTR). The study will enroll pediatric AML patients who undergo myeloablative HCT at PBMTC sites. The eligibility criteria for this non-therapeutic study mirror widely accepted criteria for allogeneic HCT in pediatric AML.. The study tests the hypothesis that assessment of pre-transplant and post-transplant MRD predicts 2-year outcomes following transplant. Two MRD methodologies are being studied: flow cytometry and WT1 PCR. The secondary hypothesis is that combining these 2 methodologies will improve the accuracy in predicting 2-year outcomes following ...

Acute myeloid leukemia (AML) accounts for approximately 15-20% of all childhood leukemias, and despite dramatic improvements in treatment outcome, only approximately 70% of children with AML are cured.1 AML results from collaborating genetic aberrations in at least 2 different classes; type-I aberrations, inducing uncontrolled cell proliferation and/or survival, and type-II aberrations inhibiting cell differentiation. However, certain aberrations found in AML do not completely fit into our current definition of type-I and type-II aberrations.2 These aberrations concern epigenetic modifier genes involved in DNA methylation and histone modification, such as Ten-Eleven Translocation 2 (TET2), Isocitrate Dehydrogenase 1 (IDH1), IDH2, Enhancer of Zeste Homolog 2 (EZH2), DNA (cytosine-5)-Methyltransferase 3 Alpha (DNMT3A) and Additional Sex Combs Like-1 (ASXL1). Most of these genes are frequently mutated in adult AML patients with a prevalence varying between 12% to 35% per gene.3-7 Reports on ...

Leukemia are a heterogeneous group of cancers affecting the bone marrow and White Blood Cells (WBC). Leukemia is characterized by the rapid increase of abnormal blood cells growth or blasts, resulting in a decrease in the numbers of healthy, normal fully modified blood cells, leading to the typical symptoms of bleeding, anemia, and high risk of infection. Leukemia can grow along either the myeloid or lymphoid stem cell lines, it depends on the effect of genetic and epigenetic mutations on the progression of pluripotent stem cells to the various lines of mature cells which then pass into the blood. The effected line, combined with the rate of action and growth of disease reflects the four types of leukemias- Acute Myeloid Leukemia (AML), chronic lymphoblastic leukemia, chronic myeloid leukemia, acute lymphoblastic leukemia. AML: Acute Myeloid Leukemia, is a serious condition, its the most common leukemia suffered by adult people. According to a report from American Cancer Society, the average age ...

BACKGROUND: Associations between body mass index (BMI), outcome, and leukemia-related factors in children with acute myeloid leukemia (AML) remain unclear. We investigated associations between pretherapeutic BMI, cytogenetic abnormalities, and outcome in a large multinational cohort of children with AML.. METHODS: We included patients, age 2-17 years, diagnosed with de novo AML from the five Nordic countries (2004-2016), Hong Kong (2007-2016), the Netherlands and Belgium (2010-2016), and Canada and USA (1995-2012). BMI standard deviations score for age and sex was calculated and categorized according to the World Health Organization. Cumulative incidence functions, Kaplan-Meier estimator, Cox regression, and logistic regression were used to investigate associations.. RESULTS: In total, 867 patients were included. The median age was 10 years (range 2-17 years). At diagnosis, 32 (4%) were underweight, 632 (73%) were healthy weight, 127 (15%) were overweight, and 76 (9%) were obese. There was no ...
On July 20, 2018, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration approved ivosidenib (Tibsovo) for adult patients with relapsed or refractory acute myeloid leukemia (AML) with a susceptible IDH1 mutation as detected by an FDA-approved test.. Approval was based on an open-label, single-arm, multicenter clinical trial (AG120-C-001, ClinicalTrials.gov identifier NCT02074839) that included 174 adult patients with relapsed or refractory AML with an IDH1 mutation confirmed using the IDH1 Assay, the FDA-approved test for selection of patients with AML for treatment with ivosidenib. Ivosidenib was given orally at a starting dose of 500 mg daily until disease progression, unacceptable toxicity, or hematopoietic stem cell transplantation. The median treatment duration was 4.1 months (range, 0.1-39.5 months). Of the 174 patients, 21 (12%) received a stem cell transplant following ivosidenib treatment.. Safety and Efficacy. Efficacy was established on the basis of the rate of complete remission plus complete ...

In this issue of Clinical Cancer Research, Parkin and colleagues report on the identification of a subset of adult acute myelogenous leukemia (AML), in which the tumor suppressor NF1 is functionally inactive, resulting in increased Ras signaling and sensitivity to mammalian target of rapamycin (mTOR) inhibition (1). The authors found that AML CD34+/C38− cells with absent NF1 expression are sensitive to treatment with rapamycin, thus implicating mTOR as a therapeutic target within the leukemia-initiating compartment of a small subgroup of adult AML patients.. AML is a highly malignant hematopoietic neoplasm, characterized by a poor prognosis, especially in older patients. In addition to age, the major prognostic marker is cytogenetics, and the mutational status of selected genes (e.g., NPM1, FLT3) strongly influence prognosis in the 50% of AML cases that are cytogenetically normal (2). The treatment of AML has changed little in the past several decades, and the discovery of additional ...
Its important to know your acute myeloid leukemia (AML) subtype because it plays a large part in determining the type of treatment youll receive.
S100A8 and S100A9 are calcium-binding proteins predominantly expressed by neutrophils and monocytes and play key roles in both normal and pathological inflammation. Recently, both proteins were found to promote tumor progression through the establishment of premetastatic niches and inhibit antitumor immune responses. Although S100A8 and S100A9 have been studied in solid cancers, their functions in hematological malignancies remain poorly understood. However, S100A8 and S100A9 are highly expressed in acute myeloid leukemia (AML), and S100A8 expression has been linked to poor prognosis in AML. We identified a small subpopulation of cells expressing S100A8 and S100A9 in AML mouse models and primary human AML samples. In vitro and in vivo analyses revealed that S100A9 induces AML cell differentiation, whereas S100A8 prevents differentiation induced by S100A9 activity and maintains AML immature phenotype. Treatment with recombinant S100A9 proteins increased AML cell maturation, induced growth arrest, and
Clonal heterogeneity detected by karyotyping is a biomarker associated with adverse prognosis in acute myeloid leukemia (AML). Constitutive activation of the phosphatidylinositol-3-kinase-Akt-mechanistic target of rapamycin (PI3K-Akt-mTOR) pathway is present in AML cells, and this pathway integrates signaling from several upstream receptors/mediators. We suggest that this pathway reflects biologically important clonal heterogeneity. We investigated constitutive PI3K-Akt-mTOR pathway activation in primary human AML cells derived from 114 patients, together with 18 pathway mediators. The cohort included patients with normal karyotype or single karyotype abnormalities and with an expected heterogeneity of molecular genetic abnormalities. Clonal heterogeneity reflected as pathway mediator heterogeneity was detected for 49 patients. Global gene expression profiles of AML cell populations with and without clonal heterogeneity differed with regard to expression of ectopic olfactory receptors (a subset ...

Recently, an internal tandem duplication of the FLT3 gene (FLT3/ITD) was found in approximately 20% of adult acute myeloid leukemia (AML) cases and associated with a poor outcome. However, there are few studies on FLT3/ITD in childhood AML, and the clinical significance of FLT3/ITD is thus unclear. METHODS. FLTS/ITD was analyzed in 80 children with de novo AML. The genomic DNA polymerase chain reaction (PCR) assay was performed to identify FLT3/ITD. Genescan analysis to determine the allelic distribution was then performed for those PCR products with aberrant bands. Direct sequencing of PCR products was also carried out in each sample with FLT3/ITD. RESULTS. The ...

Our program is focused on producing new therapeutic candidates to prolong remission and potentially cure highly lethal cancers where patients have few alternative treatment options. We have selected Acute Myelogenous Leukemia (AML) as the initial clinical indication for evaluating our novel therapeutics, but anticipate a full development program encompassing many other types of solid tumor cancers. Our strategy is to develop an antibody that binds to and eliminates the cancer-forming stem cells in leukemia and other solid tumors. While current cancer treatments (e.g. surgery, chemotherapy, radiation) will frequently get rid of the bulk of the tumor, they rarely touch the tiny number of cancer stem cells that actually re-generate the masses of cancer cells that have been eliminated. When the latter occurs, the patient is described as having a relapse, leading to a disease recurrence with poor prognosis. Our strategy is to eliminate the small number of cancer-regenerating stem cells by targeting ...

The purpose of this report is to describe the results of stem cell transplantation as initial treatment for secondary acute myeloid leukemia (AML). Forty-six patients (median age 42 years) with secondary AML (17 therapy-related, 29 myelodysplasia-related) who had not received remission induction chemotherapy underwent allogeneic (n = 43) or syngeneic (n = 3) transplantation. The 5-year actuarial disease-free survival was 24.4%, and the cumulative incidences of relapse and nonrelapse mortality were 31.3% and 44.3%, respectively. Lower peripheral blood blast count was associated with a lower risk of relapse (P = .05) and shorter time from AML diagnosis to transplant was associated with a lower risk of nonrelapse mortality (P = .02) and improved disease-free survival (P = .026). Patients with therapy-related secondary AML tended to have lower disease-free survival (P = .16) and a higher relapse rate (P = .16) than patients whose leukemia was not therapy-related. The results of these 46 previously ...

Acute leukemias represent the main malignancies occurring among children under the age of 15 years. Around 17% corresponds to acute myeloid leukemia (AML). The cytogenetic analysis of bone marrow complements the diagnosis of hematological malignancies, therefore finding chromosomal aberrations provides a more reliable prognosis of the disease. Among the cytogenetic aberrations, sole trisomy is frequent in malignant neoplasias, but few cases related to AML have been reported. We report a sole trisomy 6 in a pediatric patient diagnosed as AML M4 and poor progression. We carried out a literature review of AML patients with sole trisomy 6 and compared their evolution against AML patients with normal karyotype. This is the first case of pediatric AML M4 with this cytogenetic finding. Sole trisomy 6 is infrequently reported in AML but scarce in pediatric cases. Based on overall survival analysis, we suggest that sole trisomy 6 could be associated with poor prognosis, in both, adult as well as pediatric AML.

Myeloid sarcoma occurs in 1% - 9% of patients with myelogenous leukemia. Spinal epidural myeloid sarcoma is particularly rare, and its treatment has not been established. A 27-year-old woman complained of pain on her left chest, back around the scapula, and neck. Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) showed a thoracic epidural tumor. One week after her visit, she developed motor weakness of her lower extremities and dysuria, and she was diagnosed with acute myelogenous leukemia (AML) on peripheral blood analysis. The epidural tumor was strongly suspected to be myeloid sarcoma. The paralysis of the lower extremities and bladder dysfunction were not progressive, and chemotherapy and local radiation therapy to the spine were performed. Improvement of paralysis and complete reduction of tumor volume were achieved by the combination of local low-dose radiation therapy and chemotherapy.

Myeloid sarcoma of the breast is a rare manifestation of acute myeloid leukaemia (AML). This report describes a patient who was diagnosed with AML FAB M2. Molecular analysis showed evidence of an NPM1 mutation (subtype A) and internal tandem duplications of the FLT3 gene (FLT3-ITD). Eight months after allogeneic stem cell transplantation, the patient developed a palpable mass in the left breast initially suspected as breast carcinoma. Core needle biopsy of the lesion resulted in diagnosis of myeloid sarcoma. Molecular analysis of formalin-fixed specimens of the breast tumour confirmed the known FLT3 and NPM1 gene mutations. Immunohistochemically, an aberrant cytoplasmic staining pattern for NPM1 and overexpression of FLT3 were demonstrated. The myeloid sarcoma showed complete transient resolution following treatment with the kinase inhibitor sorafenib. However, the patient developed bone marrow relapse and died in fatal cerebral haemorrhage 1 year after initial diagnosis of AML. In summary, ...
Results of the present study show for the first time that Chk1 undergoes activating phosphorylation in marrow blasts in vivo during cytarabine-containing induction therapy. Building on this result, we also show in human AML cell lines that the selective Chk1 inhibitor SCH 900776 abrogates cytarabine-induced S-phase arrest, increases cytarabine-induced apoptosis, and enhances the effects of cytarabine on colony formation. Likewise, SCH 900776 increases the effects of cytarabine in a majority of primary AML isolates but not normal myeloid progenitors in vitro. This sensitization was observed at SCH 900776 concentrations far below the approximate 5 μmol/L SCH 900776 peak levels observed at the maximum tolerated dose in solid tumor patients. These observations have potentially important implications for current efforts to enhance the efficacy of cytarabine-containing AML regimens.. Previous results have shown that cytarabine activates the ATR/Chk1 checkpoint in tissue culture cell lines in vitro ...
Minimal residual disease evaluation refers to a series of molecular and immunophenotypical techniques aimed at detecting submicroscopic disease after therapy. As such, its application in acute myeloid leukemia has greatly increased our ability to quantify treatment response, and to determine the chemosensitivity of the disease, as the final product of the drug schedule, dose intensity, biodistribution, and the pharmakogenetic profile of the patient. There is now consistent evidence for the prognostic power of minimal residual disease evaluation in acute myeloid leukemia, which is complementary to the baseline prognostic assessment of the disease. The focus for its use is therefore shifting to individualize treatment based on a deeper evaluation of chemosensitivity and residual tumor burden. In this review, we will summarize the results of the major clinical studies evaluating minimal residual disease in acute myeloid leukemia in adults in recent years and address the technical and practical issues still
Patients with hematologic malignancies are at higher risk for invasive fungal infections (IFI) mainly patients with acute myeloid leukemia. Antifungal prophylaxis can help to decrease the incidence of these infections and their related complications. Prospective study compared to historical control data included 136 newly diagnosed Acute Myeloid Leukemia patients treated at the National Cancer Institute, Cairo University from 2011 to 2014. The prospective group received primary Voriconazole compared to retrospective control regarding the infectious complications and incidence of fungal infection. Results showed that one hundred thirty-six (136) newly diagnosed pediatric AML patients were included in the study, 61 patients didnt receive antifungal prophylaxis (Non- prophylactic arm) while 75 patients received voriconazole prophylaxis (prophylactic arm). The median age among both groups was 5.5 years old. Thirty-one (50%) of the 61 patients in (non - prophylactic arm) and five (6.6%) of the 75 patients

To identify novel anti-cancer agents, we created and screened a unique nutraceutical library for activity against acute myeloid leukemia (AML) cells. From this screen, we determined that glucopsychosine was selectively toxic toward AML cell lines and primary AML patient samples with no effect toward normal hematopoietic cells. It delayed tumor growth and reduced tumor weights in mouse xenograft models without imparting toxicity. Glucopsychosine increased cytosolic calcium and induced apoptosis through calpain enzymes. Extracellular calcium was functionally important for glucopsychosine-induced AML cell death and surface calcium channel expression is altered in AML cells highlighting a unique mechanism of glucopsychosines selectivity ...

The isocitrate dehydrogenase (IDH1/IDH2) genes are metabolic enzymes, which are frequently mutated in acute myeloid leukemia (AML). The enzymes acquire neomorphic enzymatic activity when they mutated. We have investigated the frequency and outcome of the acquired IDH1/IDH2 mutations and the IDH1 SNP 105C | T (rs11554137) in 189 unselected de novo AML patients by polymerase chain reaction amplification followed by direct sequencing. The survival are presented in Kaplan Meier curves with log rank test. Multivariable survival analysis was conducted using Cox regression method, taking age, risk group, treatment, IDH1/2 mutations and IDH1 SNP105 genotype into account. Overall, IDH1/2 mutations were found in 41/187 (21.7%) of the AML patients. IDH1 codon 132 mutations were present in 7.9%, whereas IDH2 mutations were more frequent and mutations were identified in codon 140 and 172 in a frequency of 11.1% and 2.6%, respectively. The SNP 105C | T was present in 10.5% of the patients, similar to the normal

Accumulating evidence indicates that lncRNAs may have potential as new biomarkers to predict prognosis of different human cancers. HOTAIR lncRNA, transcribed from the human HOX locus, has been suggested to regulate gene expression of important target genes and up-regulation has been noted in malignancies. The role of HOX transcript antisense RNA in acute myeloid leukemia (AML) was investigated in the present case control study. HOTAIR expression was evaluated in blood samples of twenty five de novo AML patients and fifty healthy controls using real-time quantitative reverse transcription-PCR (qRT-PCR). Our results demonstrated no significant differences in HOTAIR lncRNA expression level between AML patients and healthy individuals. The obtained data indicate that HOTAIR is not an informative and reliable biomarker for AML diagnosis, although our results should be confirmed in further studies.
Between 1978 and 1988 (median follow up 5 1/2 years), 396 newly diagnosed adults with AML (age range 14-59 years, median 44) received STT comprising daily Adriamycin: 25mg/m2 for 3 days, Cytosine arabinoside (ara-C): 100mg/m2 bd and 6-thioguanine: 100mg/m2 bd, each for 7 days. A maximum of 6 cycles was administered with as short an intercycle time as possible. No further treatment was given. Complete remission (CR) was achieved in 243/396 patients (62%), 71 patients (18%) having resistant leukaemia and 82 (21%) dying within 6 weeks. Antecedent myelodysplasia and advanced age correlated unfavourably with achievement of CR (p = less than 0.001 and 0.005 respectively). Sixty nine patients continue in first remission between 2 1/2 and 12 years; the median duration of remission was 1 year. M3 morphology (p = 0.005) and absence of hepatosplenomegaly (p = 0.001) correlated favourably with duration of remission. Ninety one patients remain alive with an actuarial survival of 22% at 5 years. More recently,
