The intracellular transfer of information (biological activation/inhibition) through a signal pathway. In each signal transduction system, an activation/inhibition signal from a biologically active molecule (hormone, neurotransmitter) is mediated via the coupling of a receptor/enzyme to a second messenger system or to an ion channel. Signal transduction plays an important role in activating cellular functions, cell differentiation, and cell proliferation. Examples of signal transduction systems are the GAMMA-AMINOBUTYRIC ACID-postsynaptic receptor-calcium ion channel system, the receptor-mediated T-cell activation pathway, and the receptor-mediated activation of phospholipases. Those coupled to membrane depolarization or intracellular release of calcium include the receptor-mediated activation of cytotoxic functions in granulocytes and the synaptic potentiation of protein kinase activation. Some signal transduction pathways may be part of larger signal transduction pathways; for example, protein kinase activation is part of the platelet activation signal pathway.

Mutant N-ras induces myeloproliferative disorders and apoptosis in bone marrow repopulated mice. (1/769)

Mutations that activate the N-ras oncogene are among the most frequently detected genetic alterations in human acute myeloid leukemias (AMLs), Philadelphia chromosome-negative myeloproliferative disorders (MPDs), and myelodysplastic syndromes (MDSs). However, because N-ras has not been shown to induce these disorders in an in vivo model, the role of N-ras in the evolution of myeloid leukemia is unclear. To investigate the potential of N-ras to induce myeloid leukemia, lethally irradiated mice were reconstituted with bone marrow (BM) cells infected with a retroviral vector carrying activated N-ras. Approximately 60% of these mice developed hematopoietic disorders, including severe MPDs resembling human chronic myelogenous leukemia (CML) or AML with differentiation (French-American-British [FAB] classification M2). Other reconstituted mice succumbed to hematopoietic defects that were pathologically similar to human MDSs. The latter disorders appeared to be due to a myeloid impairment that was demonstrated by enumeration of day-12 colony-forming units-spleen (CFU-S) and by in vitro colony assays. A high level of apoptosis associated with thymic atrophy and peripheral blood (PB) lymphopenia was also evident in N-ras reconstituted mice. Our results are consistent with a model in which antiproliferative effects are a primary consequence of N-ras mutations and secondary transforming events are necessary for the development of myeloid leukemia. This is the first report of an in vivo model for N-ras induced MPD and leukemia.  (+info)

Patients with thrombocytosis have normal or slightly elevated thrombopoietin levels. (2/769)

BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVE: The distinction between clonal and reactive thrombocytoses is a frequent problem and implies different therapeutic options. As thrombopoietin (TPO) is the main regulator of megakaryocytopoiesis and thrombopoiesis, we measured TPO levels in patients with thrombocytosis in an attempt to understand the regulation and potential utility of distinguishing thrombocytoses. DESIGN AND METHODS: Serum TPO levels, platelet counts, mean platelet volume, hemoglobin, erythrocyte sedimentation rate and age were evaluated in 25 patients with clonal thrombocytosis (15 with essential thrombocythemia, 6 with polycythemia vera and 4 with chronic myeloid leukemia) and in 50 patients with reactive thrombocytosis distributed in three groups: 1) patients in post-surgical states; 2) patients with solid tumors; and 3) patients with inflammatory diseases. RESULTS: TPO levels were slightly increased in patients with clonal (135+/-50 pg/mL) and reactive (147+/-58 pg/mL) thrombocytosis compared with controls (121+/-58 pg/mL). Analyzing the different groups, patients with essential thrombocythemia had the lowest TPO levels (120+/-28 pg/mL) and patients with solid tumors the highest levels (162+/-59 pg/mL). Patients with clonal thrombocytosis were older, had higher platelet counts, mean platelet volume and hemoglobin, and lower erythrocyte sedimentation rate than patients with reactive thrombocytosis. INTERPRETATION AND CONCLUSIONS: Minor differences were observed in TPO levels between patients with primary and secondary thrombocytoses. Erythrocyte sedimentation rate, but not TPO levels, may be a useful tool for discriminating both types of thrombocytoses.  (+info)

Trisomy 21 associated transient neonatal myeloproliferation in the absence of Down's syndrome. (3/769)

Although usually associated with Down's syndrome, transient neonatal myeloproliferation (TMD) can occur in the absence of a constitutional trisomy 21. This report describes two such cases, both of whom had a trisomy 21 restricted to clonal cells. Unlike in previous such reported cases, spontaneous morphological, cytogenetic, and molecular remission in both cases was followed by re-emergence, in one case, of an evolved clone with a more malignant phenotype which required pharmacological intervention. Awareness that trisomy 21 bearing leukaemia in the neonatal period can be transient even in the absence of Down's syndrome is important to prevent unnecessary treatment. Equally, such cases require indefinite follow up as a proportion may have a recurrence which may require treatment.  (+info)

Characterization of FIM-FGFR1, the fusion product of the myeloproliferative disorder-associated t(8;13) translocation. (4/769)

The t(8;13) translocation found in a rare type of stem cell myeloproliferative disorder generates a constitutively activated tyrosine kinase containing N-terminal sequence encoded by the FIM gene linked to the FGFR1 kinase domain. Here we have further characterized FIM and FIM-FGFR1 proteins. Firstly, we have studied their respective subcellular localization. We show that FIM has nuclear and nucleolar localization, whereas FIM-FGFR1 is mainly cytoplasmic. Within the nucleolus, FIM colocalizes with the upstream binding factor in interphasic cells, indicating that FIM may be involved in the regulation of rRNA transcription. We demonstrate that the targetting of FIM to the nucleus depends upon its C-terminal region, which is absent in the cytoplasmic FIM-FGFR1 protein. Secondly, we demonstrate that FIM-FGFR1 has constitutive dimerization capability mediated by the FIM N-terminal sequences. Finally, we show that FIM-FGFR1 promotes survival of pro-B Ba/F3 cells after interleukin-3 withdrawal, whereas ligand-activated FGFR1 induced not only cell survival but also interleukin-3 independence. Taken together, these results indicate that FIM-FGFR1 is activated by dimerization as a cytoplasmic kinase and suggest that FIM-FGFR1 partially signals through the FGFR1 pathways.  (+info)

Bcr-Abl with an SH3 deletion retains the ability To induce a myeloproliferative disease in mice, yet c-Abl activated by an SH3 deletion induces only lymphoid malignancy. (5/769)

The bcr-abl oncogene plays a critical role in the pathogenesis of chronic myelogenous leukemia (CML). The fusion of Bcr sequences to Abl constitutively activates the Abl protein tyrosine kinase. We have recently shown that expression of Bcr-Abl in bone marrow cells by retroviral transduction efficiently induces in mice a myeloproliferative disease resembling human CML and that Abl kinase activity is essential for Bcr-Abl to induce a CML-like myeloproliferative disease. However, it is not known if activation of the Abl kinase alone is sufficient to induce a myeloproliferative disease. In this study, we examined the role of the Abl SH3 domain of Bcr-Abl in induction of myeloproliferative disease and tested whether c-Abl activated by SH3 deletion can induce a CML-like disease. We found that Bcr-Abl with an Abl SH3 deletion still induced a CML-like disease in mice. In contrast, c-Abl activated by SH3 deletion induced only lymphoid malignancies in mice and did not stimulate the growth of myeloid colonies from 5-fluorouracil-treated bone marrow cells in vitro. These results indicate that Bcr sequences in Bcr-Abl play additional roles in inducing myeloproliferative disease beyond simply activating the Abl kinase domain and that functions of the Abl SH3 domain are either not required or redundant in Bcr-Abl-induced myeloproliferative disease. The results also suggest that the type of hematological neoplasm induced by an abl oncogene is influenced not only by what type of hematopoietic cells the oncogene is targeted into but also by the intrinsic oncogenic properties of the particular abl oncogene. In addition, we found that DeltaSH3 c-Abl induced less activation of Akt and STAT5 than did Bcr-Abl, suggesting that activation of these pathways plays a critical role in inducing a CML-like disease.  (+info)

De novo appearance of the ph-1 chromosome in a previously monosomic bone marrow (45,XX,-6): conversion of a myeloproliferative disorder to acute myelogenous leukemia. (6/769)

Bone marrow examination of a patient with a myeloproliferative disorder revealed monosomy for chromosome No. 6 (45,XX,-6). Two months later, during blastic crisis, reinvestigation of the bone marrow showed the presence of the Ph-1 chromosome in the previously aneuploid cell line (45,XX,-6,-22,+Ph-1). This case differs from those previously published in that the Ph-1 chromosome appeared de novo during the development of frank acute myelogenous leukemia.  (+info)

Patients' psychosocial concerns following stem cell transplantation. (7/769)

Information regarding the nature, frequency, correlates and temporal trajectory of concerns of stem cell transplantation (SCT) recipients is critical to the development of interventions to enhance quality of life (QOL) in these individuals. This study examined psychosocial concerns in 110 SCT (87% autologous) recipients drawn from two SCT centers. Participants were a mean of 46 years of age and 17 months post-SCT (range 3-62 months). Information regarding current and past SCT-related concerns, performance status, and demographic characteristics was collected by telephone interview or questionnaire. Recipients reported a wide variety of psychosocial concerns following SCT. Recipients who were younger, female and evidenced a poorer performance status reported a larger number of post-SCT concerns. Examination of the temporal trajectory of concerns suggests that some concerns are salient throughout the course of post-SCT recovery (eg disease recurrence, energy level, 'returning to normal'), some are salient early in the course of recovery (eg quality of medical care, overprotectiveness by others), and others emerge later in the course of recovery (eg feeling tense or anxious, sexual life, sleep, relationship with spouse/partner, ability to be affectionate). Implications for the development of interventions to enhance post-SCT QOL are identified.  (+info)

Myeloproliferative disorders. (8/769)

Forty-three operative procedures were performed on a population of 250 patients with myeloproliferative disorders, including polycythemia vera, myeloid metaplasia (MM) and chronic myelogenous leukemia (CML). The overall operative mortality was approximately 7% and the incidence of excessive bleeding which could be related to coagulopathy was 5%. Twenty-one patients with MM or CML underwent splenectomy for palliation of symptoms related to the enlarged spleen or hematologic problems. Eighty-four percent of the latter group were improved. Adverse hematologic effects which could be attributed to splenectomy in these patients were confined to two patients who developed marked thrombocytosis. Among the 23 patients with MM, 9 had portal hypertension. Three underwent portacaval shunt and one a splenorenal shunt for bleeding varices. One of the patients died of hepatic necrosis. Estimated hepatic blood flow determinations (EHBF) in 4 patients with portal hypertension demonstrated a marked absolute increase and an increase in the ratio of EHBF/Cardiac Index. Absence of any evidence of intrahepatic or extrahepatic obstruction in these patients and the demonstration that splenectomy relieved portal hypertension defined at surgery in 4 patients, suggests that augmented adhepatic flow contributes to portal hypertension in some cases. The review leads to the conclusions that: 1) Operative procedures in prepared patients with myeloproliferative disorders are not associated with prohibitive mortality and morbidity rates. 2) Splenectomy is indicated for patients with increasing transfusion requirements and symptomatic splenomegaly or hypersplenism and should be performed early in the course of disease. 3) When associated portal hypertension and bleeding varices are present, hemodynamic studies should be carried out to define if splenectomy alone, or a portal systemic decompressive procedure is indicated.  (+info)

N2 - We report the prenatal diagnosis of a transient myeloproliferative disorder suggestive of leukaemia in a fetus with hepatosplenomegaly, hydrops and 47,XY,+21 karyotype. The initial fetal white blood cell count at 26 + 5 weeks gestation was 190/nl with 70 per cent blast cells. Immunophenotyping of the large blasts revealed surface markers suggestive of an early stem cell differentiation arrest resulting in undifferentiated polyclonal myelopoiesis. The fetal heart tracing showed minimal beat-to-beat variability in the presence of high leukocyte counts. Serial fetal blood sampling showed decreasing blast cells in the peripheral blood and normalization of white blood cell counts. Although there was increasing hydrops, this period was marked by improvement of the fetal heart rate pattern. Finally ...
Background: This study was conducted to evaluate the frequency of JAK2, CALR and MPL mutations in with BCR-ABL myeloproliferative neoplasms and their association with demographic data and hematologic parameters in a referral center, in the Middle East. Methods: Seventy-one patients with BCR-ABL negative myeloproliferative neoplasms were evaluated for JAK2 V617F, CALR type 1, type 2, and MPL by allele-specific PCR and conventional PCR from 2018 to 2019. Results: Twenty three patients were categorized as polycythemia vera and demonstrated JAK2 V617F in 91.3 % of these cases. Thirty-eight patients were classified as essential thrombocythemia and showed JAK2 V617F in 52.6%, CALR type 1 in 18.4%, CALR type 2 in 7.9% and no mutation in 21.1%. Seven patients were recognized as primary myelofibrosis and exhibited JAK2 V617F mutation in 57.1%, CALR type 1 in 14.3 %, CALR type 2 in 14.3% and no mutation in 14.3%. Three patients were diagnosed as MPN, unclassifiable and revealed JAK2 V617F mutation in 33.3% and
Previous small studies and clinical cases have suggested a possible association between pulmonary hypertension (PH) and chronic myeloproliferative disorders (CMPD). MPD may cause PH through different mechanisms as: high cardiac output, asplenia, direct obstruction of pulmonary arteries by megakaryocytes, chronic thromboembolic endothelial pulmonary hypertension (CTEPH), porto-pulmonary hypertension (POPH). However, the exact prevalence of PH in this group of disorders is not known.. This study is designed to identify the pulmonary vascular changes and describe the prevalence of pulmonary hypertension (defined in this study as mean pulmonary arterial hypertension (mPAP) ≥25mmHg as assessed by right-heart catheterization (RHC) or systolic pulmonary arterial pressure (sPAP) ≥37mmHg (2.9 m/s) assessed by echocardiography. ...
Chronic myeloproliferative disorders are a group of slow-growing blood cancers in which the bone marrow makes too many abnormal red blood cells, white blood cells, or platelets, which accumulate in the blood. The type of myeloproliferative disorder is based on whether too many red blood cells, white blood cells, or platelets are being made. Sometimes the body will make too many of more than one type of blood cell, but usually one type of blood cell is affected more than the others are ...
The PRV-1 gene has been proposed as a marker of polycythaemia vera (PV). PRV-1 and NB1 are alleles of the polymorphic gene CD177, which belongs to the Ly-6/uPAR superfamily, and their coding regions differ at only four nucleotides. We studied neutrophil CD177 mRNA levels in normal subjects and in 235 patients with Ph-negative chronic myeloproliferative disorders (CMD), including PV, essential thrombocythaemia and myelofibrosis with myeloid metaplasia. Additional disease states were investigated for comparison. Highly variable neutrophil CD177 mRNA levels were observed in normal individuals. Neutrophils isolated from the bone marrow, or from peripheral blood following granulocyte colony-stimulating factor administration showed markedly higher CD177 expression than circulating granulocytes on steady state. Increased neutrophil CD177 mRNA levels were detected in all CMD. Elevated values were also found in reactive conditions and in disorders such as chronic myeloid leukaemia and myelodysplastic ...
The chronic myeloproliferative disorders (CMPD) are a group of clinically related diseases characterized by clonal hematopoiesis with increased proliferation of one or more myeloid cell lineages. The identification of JAK2 mutations (JAK2V617F and JAK2 exon 12) in patients with CMPD is of great significance in the understanding of the molecular mechanisms underlined the pathogenesis of the disease contributing also to clinical management of patients. However, the precise pathogenetic contribution of JAK2 mutation is far from being fully elucidated and it is currently under intense investigation. Testing of JAK2 mutations has made the diagnosis of CMPD more precise than ever before, while genotype-phenotype associations have been identified. Furthermore, the discovery of JAK2 mutations facilitated the development of new targeted therapies and clinical trials are currently ongoing.
In this issue of the Hematology, Transfusion and Cell Therapy Journal, Cacemiro et al. evaluated the plasma cytokine profile of 47 patients with Ph-negative myeloproliferative neoplasms (MPN) [essential thrombocythemia (ET), primary myelofibrosis (PMF), and polycythemia vera (PV)] and of healthy subjects.1 They demonstrated increased levels of pro-inflammatory cytokines in MPN patients and higher levels of interferon (IFN)-γ-induced protein 10 (IP-10) in PMF patients with the JAK2 V617F mutation. They found differences in the cytokine profile among the three MPN disorders, including increased levels of IL-12p70, IL-17A, and RANTES in PMF, showing that MPN, in particular PMF, have altered inflammatory profiles. However, their sample population did not make clinical and prognostic implications of their findings possible.. What is the clinical relevance of the altered cytokine levels in MPN? Are they related to constitutional symptoms, transformation or evolution to fibrosis? Do they have an ...
Children with Down syndrome (DS) up to the age of 4 years are at a 150-fold excess risk of developing myeloid leukemia (ML-DS). Approximately 4%-5% of newborns with DS develop transient myeloproliferative disorder (TMD). Blast cell structure and immunophenotype are similar in TMD and ML-DS. A mutation in the hematopoietic transcription factor GATA1 is present in almost all cases. Here, we show that simple techniques detect GATA1 mutations in the largest series of TMD (n = 134; 88%) and ML-DS (n = 103; 85%) cases tested. Furthermore, no significant difference in the mutational spectrum between the 2 disorders was seen. Thus, the type of GATA1 sequence mutation is not a reliable tool and is not prognostic of which patients with TMD are probable to develop ML-DS.
The myeloproliferative neoplasms (MPNs), previously myeloproliferative diseases (MPDs), are a group of diseases of the bone marrow in which excess cells are produced. They are related to, and may evolve into, myelodysplastic syndrome and acute myeloid leukemia, although the myeloproliferative diseases on the whole have a much better prognosis than these conditions. The concept of myeloproliferative disease was first proposed in 1951 by the hematologist William Dameshek.[1] In the most recent World Health Organization classification of hematologic malignancies, this group of diseases was renamed from myeloproliferative diseases to myeloproliferative neoplasms.[2] This reflects the underlying clonal genetic changes that are a salient feature of this group of disease.. The increased numbers of blood cells may not cause any symptoms, but a number of medical problems or symptoms may occur. The risk of thrombosis is increased in some types of MPN.. ...
8p11 myeloproliferative syndrome (EMS) is a very rare clinicopathological entity which is characterized by the appearance of a myeloproliferative neoplasm in the bone marrow, peripheral lymphadenopathy, usually caused by T or B lymphoblastic lymphoma/leukemia, and a reciprocal translocation involving chromosome 8p11. Herein we describe a 22-year-old male patient with unusual clinical presentation of EMS. Namely, he initially presented with prolonged epistaxis. Complete blood count showed elevated hemoglobin (17.7g/dl), thrombocytopenia (98x109/l) and leukocytosis (57x109/l). Bone marrow aspirate and biopsy findings corresponded with the presence of a myeloproliferative neoplasm while cytogenetic analysis revealed t(8;13)(p11q12). After that ZMYM2-FGFR1 in-frame fusion was confirmed at the molecular level. Immediately after establishing the diagnosis of a myeloproliferative neoplasm (MPN) generalized lymphadenopathy was developed. Histopathologic examination of lymph node sample confirmed the ...

AU - Tidwell, Josephine A.. AU - Sharma, Suash. AU - Cowell, John Kenneth. PY - 2012/6/6. Y1 - 2012/6/6. N2 - Constitutive activation of FGFR1, through rearrangement with various dimerization domains, leads to atypical myeloproliferative disorders where, although T cell lymphoma are common, the BCR-FGFR1 chimeric kinase results in CML-like leukemia. As with the human disease, mouse bone marrow transduction/transplantation with BCR-FGFR1 leads to CML-like myeloproliferation as well as B-cell leukemia/lymphoma. The murine disease described in this report is virtually identical to the human disease in that both showed bi-lineage involvement of myeloid and B-cells, splenomegaly, leukocytosis and bone marrow hypercellularity. A CD19+ IgM- CD43+ immunophenotype was seen both in primary tumors and two cell lines derived from ...
Mutations in JAK2, MPL and CALR are highly relevant to the Philadelphia chromosome (Ph)-negative myeloproliferative neoplasms (MPNs). We performed high resolution melting analysis and Sanger sequencing together with T-A cloning to elucidate the unique mutation profile of these genes, in Chinese patients with MPNs. Peripheral blood DNA samples were obtained from 80 patients with polycythemia vera (PV), 80 patients with essential thrombocytosis (ET) and 50 patients with primary myelofibrosis (PMF). Ten PV patients were identified with diverse JAK2 exon 12 mutations. Five novel JAK2 Exon 12 mutation patterns (M532V/E543G, N533D, M535I/H538Y/K549I, E543G and D544N) were described. JAK2 V617F was detected in 140 samples (66 PV, 45 ET and 29 PMF). JAK2 Exon 12 mutations were prevalent (13%) and variable in the Chinese patients. Compared with PV patients with JAK2 V617F mutations, PV patients with JAK2 exon 12 mutations had an earlier median onset of disease (P = 0.0013). MPL W515L/K mutations were ...

Complications of Myelodysplastic/myeloproliferative disease including hidden complications, secondary medical conditions, symptoms, or other types of Myelodysplastic/myeloproliferative disease complication.
Myeloproliferative diseases were first described by William Dameshek in 1951. In 2008, the World Health Organization established a new classification system and introduced the term myeloproliferative neoplasms (MPNs). Polycythemia vera (PV), essential thrombocythemia (ET), and primary myelofibrosis (PMF) are the most prevalent MPNs and are characterized by overproduction of leukocytes, erythrocytes, or platelets; development of bone marrow fibrosis; leukemic transformation; and arterial and venous thrombosis. When Dameshek proposed the term myeloproliferative diseases, he also proposed the presence of a then-undiscovered stimulus that drove proliferation. We now understand that mutation of the JAK2 gene, JAK2 V617F, is the most common stimulus, occurring in 95% of patients with PV and 60% of those with ET or PMF. Myeloproliferative neoplasms are relatively rare; are acquired in middle to older age; and are, despite their classification as neoplasms, indolent diseases, with survival measured ...
Conclusions:. Essential thrombocythemia, primary myelofibrosis, and polycythemia vera patients exhibited different patterns of cytokine production, as revealed by cytokine network correlations. Together, these findings suggest that augmented cytokine levels are associated with the physiopathology of myeloproliferative neoplasms. ...
Classic BCR-ABL negative chronic myeloproliferative neoplasms (MPN) are stem cell disorders characterized by abnormal myeloid proliferation and increased blood cell counts and comprise polycythemia vera (PV), essential thrombocythemia (ET) and primary myelofibrosis (PMF).. Myeloproliferative neoplasms (MPN) are common malignancies in elderly individuals as the combined annual incidence rates of classical MPNs were reported to be 0.84, 1.03, and 0.47 per 100,000 respectively for PV, ET, and PMF but with a wide variation in prevalence rates reported in different studies. The 5-year relative survival rates are 84.8, 89.9, and 39% for PV, ET and PMF patients, respectively.. Thromboembolic complications represent a major cause of morbidity and mortality in MPN, particularly in PV and ET. The mechanisms underlying increased thrombotic risk in chronic myeloproliferative neoplasms (MPN) are incompletely understood.. Several pathophysiological mechanisms help explain the increased likelihood of ...
TY - JOUR. T1 - Practical management of classical myeloproliferative disorder patients. T2 - A clinicians guide. AU - Mesa, Ruben A.. PY - 2006/8/1. Y1 - 2006/8/1. N2 - The classical myeloproliferative disorders (MPDs) are comprised of the clonal, BCR-ABL-negative, chronic myelold disorders of essential thrombocythemia, polycythemia vera, and myelofibrosis with myeloid metaplasia. Managment of these disorders remains a significant challenge due to the varied range of prognosis and phenotypic manifestations. Curative therapy, achieved in some patients through allogeneic stem cell transplantation, is elusive or inappropriate in most. Additionally, no available medical therapy has been shown to clearly improve survival or delay disease progression. Current management involves an emphasis on prevention of thrombohemorrhagic complications (through aspirin treatment, phlebotomy and cytoreduction in high-risk patients) in early-stage patients and symptomatic care in those with advanced disease. ...

Abstract Background and Objectives Chronic myeloproliferative neoplasms (MPNs) are clonal hematopoietic stem cell disorders. They are heterogeneous in symptoms and mainly consist of Philadelphia chromosome positive (Ph+) and negative (Ph-). The Ph- group includes polycythemia Vera (PV), essential thrombocythemia (ET), primary myelofibrosis (PMF) and other rare disorders. In the latter ...
The identification of mutually exclusive somatic mutations shared among myeloproliferative neoplasm (MPN) subtypes has provided a powerful tool for studying disease evolution. Clinical features, gene mutations, and survival over 18 years were analyzed in MPN patients. One hundred thirty-eight MPN patients were subcategorized according to MPN subtypes: essential thrombocythemia (ET, n = 41), polycythemia vera (PV, n = 56), primary myelofibrosis (PMF, n = 10), and MPN unclassified (MPN-U, n = 31). Patient characteristics included clinical parameters, overall survival (OS), and mutational status of the Janus kinase 2 (JAK2), calreticulin (CALR), and myeloproliferative leukemia virus oncogene (MPL) genes. We compared hematologic and clinical features of JAK2V617F-ET vs. CALR-mutated ET vs. JAK2V617F-PV patients. JAK2V617F-patients had higher values of erythrocytes, hemoglobin, and hematocrit compared to CALR-mutated patients (p , 0.05). The mutant allele burden in JAK2V617F-PV and JAK2V617F-ET ...

Following the success of imatinib in BCR-ABL positive CML and its capacity to occupy the ATP binding sites of several other tyrosine kinases such as ARG (ABL2), KIT, PDGFRA, PDGFRB or FMS, there has been considerable interest in extending its clinical use to diseases in which other activated tyrosine kinases are implicated. In this issue Baccarani et al.27 present the results of a phase-II-trial in which patients with FIP1L1-PDGFRA-positive CEL or HES without a known molecular target were treated with imatinib at a target dose of 400 mg/day. This is the largest such study reported to date and has the advantage of relatively long follow-up. Based on the high rates of rapid complete hematologic remissions previously reported by other groups,27 it is not surprising that all FIP1L1-PDGFRA positive patients achieved complete hematologic remissions after a median of 2 months. In addition, all patients achieved complete molecular remission, as determined by nested RT-PCR, after a median of 6 months, ...

Immediately following the 2010 annual American Society of Hematology (ASH) meeting, the 5th International Post-ASH Symposium on Chronic Myelogenous Leukemia and BCR-ABL1-Negative Myeloproliferative Neoplasms (MPNs) took place on 7-8 December 2010 in Orlando, Florida, USA. During this meeting, the most recent advances in laboratory research and clinical practice, including those that were presented at the 2010 ASH meeting, were discussed among recognized authorities in the field. The current paper summarizes the proceedings of this meeting in BCR-ABL1-negative MPN. We provide a detailed overview of new mutations with putative epigenetic effects (TET oncogene family member 2 (TET2), additional sex comb-like 1 (ASXL1), isocitrate dehydrogenase (IDH) and enhancer of zeste homolog 2 (EZH2)) and an update on treatment with Janus kinase (JAK) inhibitors, pomalidomide, everolimus, interferon-α, midostaurin and cladribine.

N2 - The molecular profiling of myeloproliferative neoplasms (MPNs) has introduced a paradigm shift in the process of diagnosis, prognostication, monitoring and treatment of these diseases. The discovery of the BCR-ABL fusion oncogene is an example of a remarkable bench-to-bedside story. It has provided a comprehensive explanation of the pathogenesis of chronic myelogenous leukemia, and has resulted in the development of excellent treatment strategies. It has led to the use of advanced diagnostic techniques, such as fluorescence in situ hybridization and PCRs that allow for more effective means to monitor disease treatment, including the detection of minimal residual disease, early relapse and drug resistance. Unlike chronic myelogenous leukemia, the exact molecular pathways for the BCR-ABL-negative MPNs have not been completely elucidated. The ...
This is a concise, practical, case-based book documenting examples and scenarios that will help you manage challenging clinical issues for patients with myeloproliferative neoplasms. The editors and authors have strived to distil the very latest information in this rapidly advancing field in a way that will help you to update your practice and manage your patients. The key focuses are: diagnosis, both standard and challenging; both day-to-day management as well as special situations such as surgery, thrombotic events and pregnancy; and finally, managing evolving situations with MPN such as progression to acute myeloid leukemia. This book is an outstanding resource that includes a discussion of both classical myeloproliferative neoplasms, such as essential thrombocythemia, polycythemia vera and myelofibrosis, and also less common disorders such as systemic mast cell disease, hypereosinophilia, MPN/MBS overlap syndromes and atypical CML, amongst others. This book is a practical reference for ...
BACKGROUND Hematopoietic malignancies are a group of blood cell disorders characterized by abnormal hematopoietic proliferation. OBJECTIVE The identification of specific clinicopathologic characteristics and tumor-related gene status provides critical information on potential therapeutic targets. METHODS The specimens were tested with immunohistochemistry, flow cytometry, RT-PCR and fragment analysis. RESULTS In this study, a patient with a long history of tobacco use was reported with a diagnosis of simultaneous low-grade B-cell lymphoproliferative disorder (LPD) and myeloproliferative neoplasm (MPN). Mutational analysis revealed that JAK2 V617F mutation and CALR mutation with 52bp deletion were present in this patient. CONCLUSION These results suggest that lymphoproliferative and myeloproliferative neoplasms may coexist, although the pathogenetic mechanism of coexisting hematologic requires further investigation. Additionally, the data indicate that JAK2 V617F and CALR mutations are not
ETV6-ABL1 is a rare gene fusion with oncogenic properties, reported so far in 28 patients presenting a variety of haematological malignancies associated with clinical outcome, including chronic myeloid leukaemia (CML), acute myeloid leukaemia (AML), acute lymphoblastic leukaemia (ALL) and chronic myeloproliferative neoplasm (cMPN). Here we report on a 46-year-old female who presented with Philadelphia negative CML, positive for the ETV6-ABL1 fusion. Whole genome screening carried out with oligonucleotide arrays showed a subtle loss at 12p13 and cryptic imbalances within the 9q34.3 region in a highly unstable genome. FISH mapping with custom BAC probes identified two breakpoints 5 Mb apart within the 9q34 region, together with a break at 12p13. While FISH with commercial BCR-ABL1 probes failed to detect any ABL1 changes, the ETV6 break-apart probe conclusively identified the ETV6-ABL1 fusion thus determining the probes role as the primary diagnostic FISH test for this chimeric oncogene. In addition, we
PURPOSE Myeloproliferative neoplasm (MPN) symptoms are troublesome to patients, and alleviation of this burden represents a paramount treatment objective in the development of MPN-directed therapies. We aimed to assess the utility of an abbreviated symptom score for the most pertinent and representative MPN symptoms for subsequent serial use in assessing response to therapy.. PATIENTS AND METHODS. The Myeloproliferative Neoplasm Symptom Assessment Form total symptom score (MPN-SAF TSS) was calculated as the mean score for 10 items from two previously validated scoring systems. Questions focus on fatigue, concentration, early satiety, inactivity, night sweats, itching, bone pain, abdominal discomfort, weight loss, and fevers.. RESULTS MPN-SAF TSS was calculable for 1,408 of 1,433 patients with MPNs who had a mean score of 21.2 (standard deviation [SD], 16.3). MPN-SAF TSS results significantly differed among MPN disease subtypes (P , .001), with a mean of 18.7 (SD, 15.3), 21.8 (SD, 16.3), and 25.3 ...

BACKGROUND: Cancers result from the accumulation of somatic mutations, and their properties are thought to reflect the sum of these mutations. However, little is known about the effect of the order in which mutations are acquired. METHODS: We determined mutation order in patients with myeloproliferative neoplasms by genotyping hematopoietic colonies or by means of next-generation sequencing. Stem cells and progenitor cells were isolated to study the effect of mutation order on mature and immature hematopoietic cells. RESULTS: The age at which a patient presented with a myeloproliferative neoplasm, acquisition of JAK2 V617F homozygosity, and the balance of immature progenitors were all influenced by mutation order. As compared with patients in whom the TET2 mutation was acquired first (hereafter referred to as TET2-first patients), patients in whom the Janus kinase 2 (JAK2) mutation was acquired first (JAK2-first patients) had a greater likelihood of presenting with polycythemia vera than with

Rearrangements of the genes for the platelet-derived growth factor receptor alpha (PDGFRa) or the platelet-derived growth factor receptor beta (PDGFRβ) have been identified in myeloid/lymphoid neoplasms with eosinophilia.1 Fusions of PDGFRβ, which encodes a type III receptor tyrosine kinase, result in constitutive kinase activation and promotion of survival, proliferation and cell migration.2 Since the description of ETV6-PDGFRβ in 1994,3 more than 30 PDGFRβ fusion partners have been described, most of which have been identified in myeloproliferative neoplasms or in a myelodysplastic syndrome/myeloproliferative neoplasm overlap, but only rarely in acute myeloid leukemia (AML).541. PDGFRβ fusions are commonly in-frame mutations that contain an N-terminal fusion partner with dimerization/oligomerization motifs, enabling PDGFR-ligand-independent receptor tyrosine kinase activation.61 PDGFRβ-rearranged chronic myeloproliferative neoplasms show a favorable response to imatinib with a 10- year ...
New research from Karolinska Institutet shows that the survival for patients with chronic myeloproliferative diseases has improved in recent decades. This is despite the fact that no targeted drugs have yet been registered for this group of diseases. More than 9,000 patients have been included in a unique population-based study which has been published in the Journal of Clinical Oncology.
The recent discovery of an acquired activating point mutation in JAK2, substituting valine at amino acid position 617 for phenylalanine, has greatly improved our understanding of the molecular mechanism underlying chronic myeloproliferative neoplasms. Strikingly, the JAK2V617F mutation is found in nearly all patients suffering from polycythemia vera and in roughly every second patient suffering from essential thrombocythemia and primary myelofibrosis. Thus, JAK2 represents a promising target for the treatment of myeloproliferative neoplasms and considerable efforts are ongoing to discover and develop inhibitors of the kinase. Here, we report potent inhibition of JAK2V617F and JAK2 wild-type enzymes by a novel substituted quinoxaline, NVP-BSK805, which acts in an ATP-competitive manner. Within the JAK family, NVP-BSK805 displays more than 20-fold selectivity towards JAK2 in vitro, as well as excellent selectivity in broader kinase profiling. The compound blunts constitutive STAT5 phosphorylation ...

Human myeloproliferative disorders form a range of clonal haematological malignant diseases, the main members of which are polycythaemia vera, essential thrombocythaemia, and idiopathic myelofibrosis. The molecular pathogenesis of these disorders is unknown, but tyrosine kinases have been implicated in several related disorders. We investigated the role of the cytoplasmic tyrosine kinase JAK2 in patients with a myeloproliferative disorder.We obtained DNA samples from patients with polycythaemia vera, essential thrombocythaemia, or idiopathic myelofibrosis. The coding exons of JAK2 were bidirectionally sequenced from peripheral-blood granulocytes, T cells, or both. Allele-specific PCR, molecular cytogenetic studies, microsatellite PCR, Affymetrix single nucleotide polymorphism array analyses, and colony assays were undertaken on subgroups of patients.A single point mutation (Val617Phe) was identified in JAK2 in 71 (97%) of 73 patients with polycythaemia vera, 29 (57%) of 51 with essential

Disorders which share common features: Polycythemia Vera causes the overproduction of red cells, white cells and platelets; Idiopathic Myelofibrosis has an overproduction of white cells or platelets with anemia and an increase in bone marrow fibrous tissue. Essential Thrombocytosis features an increase in circulating platelets. Also Chronic Neutrophilic Leukemia and Chronic Eosinophilic Leukemia both which may develop into Leukemia.
Myelophthisic anemia (or myelophthisis) is a severe type of anemia found in some people with diseases that affect the bone marrow. Myelophthisis refers to the displacement of hemopoietic bone-marrow tissue either by fibrosis, tumors or granulomas. The word comes from the roots myelo-, which refers to bone marrow, and phthysis, shrinkage or atrophy. Myelophthisis can occur in the setting of chronic myeloproliferative disease (e.g. myelofibrosis), leukemia, lymphoma, and metastatic carcinoma or myeloma. It is common in people who have chronic idiopathic myelofibrosis. It has been linked to small-cell lung cancer, breast cancer or prostate cancer that metastasizes to the bone marrow. Historically, the most common cause of displacement of healthy bone marrow was tuberculosis.[citation needed] Currently, the most common cause is displacement of bone marrow by metastatic cancer (extramedullary hematopoiesis tends to be modest). Other causes include myeloproliferative disorders (especially late-stage ...
RESULTS: In our study, MPL W515L/K or JAK-2 V617F mutations were not observed in healthy controls. JAK-2 V617F mutation was present in 35 patients, of whom 29 had ET (43.9%, 29/66) and 6 had PMF (54.5%, 6/11). In the patient group, MPL W515L/K mutations were found in only 2 PMF cases, and these cases were negative for JAK-2 V617F mutation. The prevalence of MPL W515L/K mutations in the patient group was 2.6%, and the prevalence of MPL W515L/K mutations among the cases negative for the JAK-2 V617F mutation was found to be 4.8%. The 2 cases with MPL W515L/K mutations had long follow-up times (124 months and 71 months, respectively), had no thrombotic or hemorrhagic complications, and had no additional cytogenetic anomalies ...

Background: The discovery of somatic acquired mutations of JAK2 (V617F) in Philadelphia-negative myeloproliferative neoplasms (Ph-negative MPNs) including polycythemia vera (PV), essential thrombocythemia (ET), and primary myelofibrosis (PMF) has not only improved rational disease classification and prognostication but also brings new understanding insight into the pathogenesis of diseases. Dosage effects of the JAK2 (V617F) allelic burden in Ph-negative MPNs may partially influence clinical presentation, disease progression, and treatment outcome. Material and Methods: Pyrosequencing was performed to detect JAK2 (V617F) and MPL (W515K/L) and capillary electrophoresis to identify CALR exon 9.0 mutations in 100.0 samples of Ph-negative MPNs (38.0 PV, 55 ET, 4 PMF, and 3 MPN-U). Results: The results showed somatic mutations of JAK2 (V617F) in 94.7% of PV, 74.5% of ET, 25.0% of PMF, and all MPN-U. A high proportion of JAK2 (V617F) mutant allele burden (mutational load | 50.0%) was predominantly observed

Research in the Jerry Spivak Lab focuses on chronic myeloproliferative disorders, particularly their molecular mechanisms and methods for distinguishing them diagnostically and interventionally. By analyzing gene expression in polycythemia vera stem cells, we have learned that patients with polycythemia vera can be differentiated from those with erythrocytosis and can be diagnosed as having either aggressive or slow-growing disease. We are also studying the roles played by specific molecular markers in the pathogenesis and diagnosis of polycythemia vera..

Activating mutations of MPL exon 10 have been described in a minority of patients with idiopathic myelofibrosis (IMF) or essential thrombocythemia (ET), but their prevalence and clinical significance are unclear. Here we demonstrate that MPL mutations outside exon 10 are uncommon in platelet cDNA and identify 4 different exon 10 mutations in granulocyte DNA from a retrospective cohort of 200 patients with ET or IMF. Allele-specific polymerase chain reaction was then used to genotype 776 samples from patients with ET entered into the PT-1 studies. MPL mutations were identified in 8.5% of JAK2 V617F(-) patients and a single V617F(+) patient. Patients carrying the W515K allele had a significantly higher allele burden than did those with the W515L allele, suggesting a functional difference between the 2 variants. Compared with V617F(+) ET patients, those with MPL mutations displayed lower hemoglobin and higher platelet levels at diagnosis, higher serum erythropoietin levels, endogenous megakaryocytic but

N2 - Idiopathic myelofibrosis is a myeloproliferative disorder of unknown origin. The bone marrow becomes fibrotic with an associated decrease in hematopoiesis resulting in anemia, bleeding problems, splenomegaly, and other secondary abnormalities. Although idiopathic myelofibrosis is usually diagnosed in middle age, there have been a few reports of the disorder in the pediatric population. This case report documents dental treatment considerations in a 6-year-old female with idiopathic myelofibrosis, severe anemia, and abnormal blood coagulation studies. The patient was successfully treated in a hospital after medical consultation, transfusion of packed red blood cells, and administration of prophylactic antibiotics. Local hemostatic measures following multiple extractions of carious teeth controlled bleeding. No ...
BACKGROUND: The classical Philadelphia chromosome-negative myeloproliferative neoplasms (MPNs), consisting of polycythemia vera, essential thrombocythemia, and primary myelofibrosis, are a heterogeneous group of neoplasms that harbor driver mutations in the JAK2, CALR, and MPL genes. The detection of these mutations has been incorporated into the recent World Health Organization (WHO) diagnostic criteria for MPN. Given a pressing clinical need to screen for these mutations in a routine diagnostic setting, a targeted next-generation sequencing (NGS) assay for the detection of MPN-associated mutations located in JAK2 exon 14, JAK2 exon 12, CALR exon 9, and MPL exon 10 was developed to provide a single platform alternative to reflexive, stepwise diagnostic algorithms ...
The classical Philadelphia chromosome-negative myeloproliferative neoplasms (MPN), which include essential thrombocythemia, polycythemia vera, and myelofibrosis (MF), are in a new era of molecular diagnosis, ushered in by the identification of the JAK2 V617F and cMPL mutations in 2005 and 2006, respectively, and the CALR mutations in 2013. Coupled with increased knowledge of disease pathogenesis and refined diagnostic criteria and prognostic scoring systems, a more nuanced appreciation has emerged of the burden of MPN in the United States, including the prevalence, symptom burden, and impact on quality of life. Biological advances in MPN have translated into the rapid development of novel therapeutics, culminating in the approval of the first treatment for MF, the JAK1/JAK2 inhibitor ruxolitinib. However, certain practical aspects of care, such as those regarding diagnosis, prevention of vascular events, choice of cytoreductive agent, and planning for therapies, present challenges for ...

Polycythemia vera (PV) is a chronic myeloproliferative disorder that can evolve to marrow fibrosis or acute leukemia (AML). Cytogenetic alterations can be detected in around 25% of patients at diagnosis and in up to 50% of those with progression. We report a case of PV with evolution to AML in which it was possible to demonstrate the two-hit model of leukemogenesis: one mutation confers proliferative advantage and another interferes with differentiation. Case: A 55-year-old female patient was diagnosed with PV in 2002 and treated with phlebotomies and hydroxyurea. In 2006, there was progression topost-polycythemic fibrosis with AML one year later. She presented the JAK2V617F mutation. The result of karyotyping performed at diagnosis was normal and at transformation, 46,XX,del(20)(q13.1) was detected in 4/20 metaphases. FISH analysis of a stored sample for 20q13 showed the deletion in 20% of interphases confirming the earlier presence of a clonal abnormality that was not detected by karyotyping. ...
Collectively, the studies discussed demonstrate that occasional patients with CALR mutation-positive essential thrombocythemia or myelofibrosis carry other myeloproliferative neoplasms-initiating genetic mutations (including JAK2 V617F), acquire secondary mutations before or after the CALR mutation, or evolve over time to being CALR mutation-homozygous..

Oncogenic ras alleles are among the most common mutations found in patients with acute myeloid leukemia (AML). Previously, the role of oncogenic ras in cancer was assessed in model systems overexpressing oncogenic ras from heterologous promoters. However, there is increasing evidence that subtle differences in gene dosage and regulation of gene expression from endogenous promoters play critical roles in cancer pathogenesis. We characterized the role of oncogenic K-ras expressed from its endogenous promoter in the hematopoietic system using a conditional allele and IFN-inducible, Cre-mediated recombination. Mice developed a completely penetrant myeloproliferative syndrome characterized by leukocytosis with normal maturation of myeloid lineage cells; myeloid hyperplasia in bone marrow; and extramedullary hematopoiesis in the spleen and liver. Flow cytometry confirmed the myeloproliferative phenotype. Genotypic and Western blot analysis demonstrated Cre-mediated excision and expression, ...

Ruxolitinib (Jakafi), an oral JAK1 and JAK2 kinase inhibitor, was approved in November 2011 for the treatment of patients with intermediate or high-risk myelofibrosis, including primary myelofibrosis, post-polycythemia vera myelofibrosis, and post-essential thrombocythemia myelofibrosis.14 Two phase III trials demonstrated significant improvement compared with best available therapy for spleen size, symptoms, and burden reduction, as well as for quality of life.14-16 However, the reduced spleen size was not shown to be consistently durable in a phase I/II study and neither phase III study reported a significant survival benefit.17,18 This agent is commonly associated with hematologic side effects; anemia was reported in 96% of patients taking ruxolitinib (grade 3/4, 45%), and thrombocytopenia was reported in 70% (grade 3/4, 13%).14 This first JAK inhibitor therapy for myelofibrosis has been long anticipated; yet, the value of this treatment is not truly known.

FUNCTION: [Summary is not available for the mouse gene. This summary is for the human ortholog.] This gene encodes a cell surface tyrosine kinase receptor for members of the platelet-derived growth factor family. These growth factors are mitogens for cells of mesenchymal origin. The identity of the growth factor bound to a receptor monomer determines whether the functional receptor is a homodimer or a heterodimer, composed of both platelet-derived growth factor receptor alpha and beta polypeptides. This gene is flanked on chromosome 5 by the genes for granulocyte-macrophage colony-stimulating factor and macrophage-colony stimulating factor receptor; all three genes may be implicated in the 5-q syndrome. A translocation between chromosomes 5 and 12, that fuses this gene to that of the translocation, ETV6, leukemia gene, results in chronic myeloproliferative disorder with eosinophilia.

This presentation summarizes the findings of the Association for Molecular Pathology Chronic Myeloid Neoplasm Working Group. Chronic myeloid neoplasms (CMNs) are defined as a complex group of hematopoietic disorders, encompassing myelodysplastic syndromes (MDS), myeloproliferative neoplasms (MPNs), the overlap entities (MDS/MPNs), and systemic mastocytosis. The goal of this group was to distill the vast amounts of literature on the mutational profiles of the CMNs into high impact information that would aid molecular pathologists in the development of next generation sequencing (NGS) myeloid panels. This work identifies 34 genes as the minimum recommended testing list and provides information on the frequency of these genes in the various CMNs as well as their prognostic and therapeutic import. In addition, the findings highlight the recurrent patterns of mutational clonal evolution in these patients, uncovering critical insight into the biology of these neoplasms..

Another form of leukemia, transient myeloproliferative leukemia, is identified with a heterozygous C to A transversion as well. In a 2002 leukemia journal written by Taketani et al., the RUNX1 gene was screened and studied in a sample group of 46 patients with down syndrome. These patients all had hematologic malignancies, meaning they were all affected by different cancers associated with bone marrow. Out of these patients, was identified with this C to A transversion and diagnosed with transient myeloproliferative leukemia 5 days after birth. However, the newborn patient died 12 months after birth. The newborn was never screened for acute myeloid leukemia. The conclusion here is that if there is an identified C-A mutation regarding the RUNX1 gene, then AML should be screened and tested for. An amniotic fluid test should be given to pregnant women in order to determine if their children carry the mutated gene associated with acute myeloid leukemia. http://omim.org/entry/151385#0008 ...
