A collection of disease information resources and questions answered by our Genetic and Rare Diseases Information Specialists for Lipogranulomatosis
Farber disease (also known as Farbers lipogranulomatosis, ceramidase deficiency, "Fibrocytic dysmucopolysaccharidosis," and "Lipogranulomatosis"[1]:545) is an extremely rare (80 cases reported worldwide to this day[2]) autosomal recessive lysosomal storage disease marked by a deficiency in the enzyme ceramidase that causes an accumulation of fatty material sphingolipids leading to abnormalities in the joints, liver, throat, tissues and central nervous system. Normally, the enzyme ceramidase breaks down fatty material in the bodys cells. In Farber Disease, the gene responsible for making this enzyme is mutated. Hence, the fatty material is never broken down and, instead, accumulates in various parts of the body, leading to the signs and symptoms of this disorder. ...
An authentic small animal model of Farber disease would greatly facilitate research into disease mechanisms and aid in the development of effective therapies. Unfortunately, a complete knock‐out model of Farber disease resulted in early embryonic lethality (Li et al, 2002) and a reduction of ACDase activity in the ovaries of a conditional knock‐out resulted in oocyte apoptosis (Eliyahu et al, 2012). These data highlight the difficulty in generating mouse models of certain LSDs, in particular the lipid storage disorders. These data also suggest that normal ceramide levels and metabolism are critical for early embryonic development.. Significant progress has been made towards effective therapies for LSDs through the use of recombinant enzyme replacement, bone marrow transplantation (BMT), small molecule drugs and gene therapy. It is likely that Farber disease would be responsive to similar approaches. However, the lack of an authentic animal model of Farber disease has hindered this ...
Conclusions A significant percentage of moderate Farber Disease patients are likely diagnosed as having JIA. Given this finding, it is important to increase awareness of Farber Disease in the pediatric rheumatology community. Differential diagnosis can be made by accounting for the comparatively early onset, progressive symmetric arthritis, presence of subcutaneous nodules at the joints, scalp and/or spine, and an unusual, hoarse cry or voice (due to nodule formation on the larynx) in FD patients. Based on experience with bone marrow transplantation in Farber Disease2, enzyme replacement therapy could resolve or significantly attenuate the arthritis phenotype in patients. Such therapy is currently under development. We propose that Farber Disease can account for specific cases diagnosed as JIA, and that clinically guided genetic screening of the JIA population will reveal patients who can benefit from disease-specific care and treatment.. ...
Sidney Farber (September 30, 1903 - March 30, 1973) was an American pediatric pathologist. He is regarded as the father of modern chemotherapy, and the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute is named after him. He was born in Buffalo, New York to Jewish parents Simon and Matilda (Goldstein) Farber. He was the third oldest of 14 siblings. He was the younger brother of the noted philosopher and University of Buffalo professor Marvin Farber (1901-1980). Sidney Farber graduated from SUNY Buffalo in 1923. In the mid-1920s, Jewish students were often refused admission to US medical schools, prompting him to go to Europe. As Farber was fluent in German, he undertook his first year of medical school at the Universities of Heidelberg and Freiburg in Germany. Having excelled in Germany, Farber entered Harvard Medical School as a second-year student and graduated in 1927. After graduate training in pathology at Peter Bent Brigham Hospital (the predecessor of Brigham and Womens Hospital) in Boston, Massachusetts, ...
When David Hahns daughter was in high school, she had to complete an oral-history project on someone with an extraordinary life story.. For Hahn, one person immediately came to mind: Erich Farber.. "He has a story that you really wont find from anyone else," said Hahn, chair of the Department of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering at the University of Florida. "He was truly remarkable.". Farber, who became a faculty member in the department in 1954 and eventually served as director of UFs Solar Energy and Energy Conversion Laboratory, passed away on April 9. He was 95.. He was a world-renowned expert, cutting-edge researcher and 36-year professor in solar-energy technologies. In addition, he earned military decorations in World War II and served as a mountain-climbing instructor and Boy Scout leader.. "My dad had the ability to do just about anything," said his son, Webb Farber, "and he did.". Erich Farber was passionate about researching and developing solar-energy technologies at a time ...

Hi everyone,. I have been on and off this site.. My husband was diagnosed with GBM in March 2012. We have had our fair amount of ups and downs, MRIs showing improvement and then spread. We live in Massachusetts and I brought my husband to Brigham and Womens, as well as Dana Farber - having seen one of the most knowledgeable doctors in the Boston area, who is from Duke University. There has been some forgetfulness, etc. There has been some increasing forgetfulness, but its funny how the brain is able to find new paths. We lost my father-in-law unexpectedly 2 days after Christmas. We had been on Temodar as most GBM patients start with. Initially, it was helping and there was shrinkage. My husband has 3 tumors, all inoperable. Our last trip to Dana Farber, he was hospitalized at BWH and had an MRI around 9/25/2012, which showed spread to the brain stem, left side of brain (original tumors on right), "fingers", and some suspicious cells in his CSF - this was a shock to us because he had been doing ...

Volunteer Name: Adam Farber Project Location: Bulenga, Uganda Program Dates: July 2013 (2 weeks) Volunteered At: Orphanage and school What was your favorite memory of this trip? The kids. Theyre so great and so excited to have a guest teacher. Getting to know them over time and watching them learn was a great experience.  What was the most difficult thing you experienced? Figuring out how cautious to be with safety at night. As time went on it seemed fine to be out for a couple hours after dark if walking with a group, especially if with a local. For a later night in Kampala it was also easy to arrange a private driver for a reasonable fee. What was the one thing you wished you were better prepared for? Understanding what to worry about safety-wise. The quick answer is dont worry in Bulenga unless its been dark for a while and all the people have gone home. Of course there is no need to take unnecessary risks either, such as walking alone anytime at night or carrying lots of money or
Temporary restorations often look almost as good as the final restoration. We want the patients to look at the temporary and say, "Wow! This looks great and feels great." The final restoration will be better. but we need to work this all out in the temporary stage. Because temporary restorations look so good, patients sometimes delay getting a final crown or final bridge on their implants. The problem with that scenario is that bacteria can leak under the temporary restoration and that may affect the health of the implant in the long run. There is a set amount of time that a temporary restoration is designed to last, and people should not go beyond that timeframe. Typically six months is the longest amount of time that I would recommend that a patient keep a temporary restoration.

In June 3, 1948, The New England Journal of Medicine published a study by Sidney Farber, MD, showing that a synthetic compound, 4-aminopteroylglutamic acid (aminopterin), could induce remissions in seriously ill children with acute leukemia.1 Although the study was small-just 16 children-10 showed clinical, hematologic, and pathologic evidence of improvement. Even though the childrens remissions were short-lived, Dr. Farbers findings were so groundbreaking-until then, no drug had proved effective against non-solid tumor cancers-they ushered in the era of chemotherapeutics, chemical agents that could stop cancer cells from growing and replicating, in effect killing them.. Aminopterin was later replaced by methotrexate, a similar but more effective folic acid antagonist with fewer side effects, which is still used today in the treatment of leukemia and other blood and solid tumor cancers. Nevertheless, the results of Dr. Farbers study earned him the title, the Father of Modern ...

my husband was in Mercks PD-1 inhibitor ( keytruda) between Jan 2015 and June 2015. He was on the highest dose of 10mg/kg every 2 weeks. At the time, there was no clinical trial that would guarantee he gets a PD-1 inhibitor . There was only one that randomized between avastin or Opdivo blindly and we didnt want to get avastin at the time. Hence, we went with the keytruda study grouping solid tumors together at the highest dose. He never had a swelling. What happened was 2 month after enrolling, he started having subtle enhancements that the NO was not sure whether they are inflammation or recurrence. Things stayed this way with increased enhancements till in June we decided this cant be enhancement and he sat for a craniotomy that confirmed our doubts that this was definetly recurrence with minimal swelling or inflammation. The pathology was confirmed by Both Dana Farber and Johns Hopkins ...

The images showed some "thickening" on the optic nerve on Cams right eye. In addition, there was some "linear enhancement" on her spine. While there is no specific tumor growth that they can identify - this is a change from her June MRI and is enough cause for concern to NOT cancel her September appointments. They would like to repeat the MRI and see Cam in the BTC at Dana Farber. In addition, they she will have another spinal tap to run cytology (check for cancer cells in her CSF). This, however, cannot be done until after they see the MRI to make sure that it is safe to do so - if you do an LP and there is tumor present, the decrease in CSF can cause the brain to "drop" and make matters worse. There are also some less dire possibilities - radiation scarring (though unlikely due to the location being outside the radiation field), meningitis scarring - but given Cams history, they are going to take a very cautious approach and make sure that no stone goes unturned ...

A trip to the past and to the future - all in one night.. This festive season, Johns Hopkins University researchers dug deep into their reserves of scientific expertise to explain how these inexplicable plot lines in holiday classics like Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer, How the Grinch Stole Christmas, and A Christmas Carol just might be (almost) (possibly) possible:. A biologist explains Rudolphs nose:. Steve Farber, principal investigator at the Carnegie Institution for Science and a Johns Hopkins biology professor. VIDEO: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Eb6Ni2BIsn8&feature=youtu.be. Although reindeer noses arent typically red, or infused with enough light to guide a sleighs airspace, Farber says other earthly creatures are that color and glow through bioluminescence or fluorescence - everything from jelly fish to sea anemones to the zebrafish he studies. If genetic material from one of those organisms found a way into Rudolphs DNA, Farber supposes he, too, could glow red - or at least a ...
What researchers have found is that when you use a proteasome inhibitor, immunomodulator, and steroid, such as in this case RVd (Revlimid, Velcade, and dexamethasone), the response rates are remarkably high. In the Dana Farber led Phase 1/2 multi-center study published in 2010 in Blood, a response rate of 100% with 50% of patients obtaining a complete remission was shown. For those patients in this study that went on to transplant, no advantage in progression free survival at 18 months was observed compared to those who did not undergo transplant . This gave Dana Farber and their partners the impetus to conduct a larger Phase 3 trial, in collaboration with their colleagues in the Intergroupe Francophone du Myelome (IFM), knowing that with such an active regimen of RVd they needed to investigate further what role transplant should take in myeloma treatment. In this current Phase 3 trial they are looking at using the RVd regimen either before stem cell mobilization with chemotherapy with a long ...

Lucy Sakala, an HIV counselor in Malawi, knows well the toll infectious diseases like AIDS take on people in her country. She also knows the anguish of a silent epidemic: Lucy has cancer. She benefitted from surgery and chemotherapy. But recently she learned that she needs combination chemotherapy and radiotherapy, neither of which is available in Malawi and both of which would be unaffordable for her even if they were. It is a brutal paradox that today in poorer countries someone caring for an AIDS patient, for whom treatment is adding years or decades of life, may themselves suffer and die from an illness for which treatment has been around far longer than for AIDS-or for which, like Lucys cervical cancer, affordable prevention exists.. Faced with this paradox, the Harvard public health community and Dana Farber Cancer Institute created the Global Task Force on Expanded Access to Cancer Care and Control in Developing Countries. This group of international experts, of which MSH is a member, ...
Pjdoherty, I am not a doctor, just a somewhat informed patient advocate. If you look at the mSmart definitions for myeloma they believe the 4:14 translocation is intermediate risk, and an older article shows Bortezomib eliminates some of the issuers from the 4:14 translocation. Dr. Irene Gorbrial at Dana Farber is doing some great work on high risk smoldering patients, so I think getting to be her patient would be a great move on your husbands part. She is following high risk smoldering patients in a study and is a leader in the development of treatment strategies for this group. A prior Spanish study showed with Len, dex vs observation the 3-year survival rate was also higher in the treatment group (94% vs. 80%). In other word you are 3.3 times likely to be alive in 3 years if treated than if not treated. The addition of Nivolumbab a check point inhibitor is thought to provide an even greater improvement in the treatment group. The check point inhibitor turns off a cancer defense mechanism ...

Blogger Euan Semple recently highlighted a key point about Enterprise 2.0 adoption that ZDNets own Dan Farber also found worthy of note over the weekend. And that is that Enterprise 2.0 will happen in your organization entirely by itself, whether you encourage it, discourage it, or even consign it to benign neglect. Euan actually laid out three strategies in semi-tongue cheek form likely meant as a shot across the bow of complacent IT departments; whether you get out of the way, actively encourage it, or do absolutely nothing, Enterprise 2.0 platforms like blogs, wikis, and related social, emergent, freeform Web 2.0-style apps are coming to your company, and in fact are almost certainly there already.

The next day, Farber got approval to cover the story. He received a phone call from the Air Force saying they could take him as far as Munich where he could cover the Air Force evacuation of refugees to the United States.. "But they knew well," Farber said, "that you couldnt take American journalists that close to the Hungarian border and not turn us loose.". It was Christmas night of 1956 when Farber reached the Austria-Hungary border. It wasnt long, however, before the journalists including Farber found a new purpose to be there.. "Ive never seen anything like this," Farber said. "When we got to the border we were journalists, but when we saw what [was] going on, all the journalists put their pencils and papers and cameras away, and instead of taking notes, they were lifting babies out of rafts.". The people fleeing Hungary were filled with gratitude, Farber said. "They were kissing the ground of the free world.". It was at the Einser Canal that Farber joined the "Freedom Navy" volunteers ...

This is an incredible book that won the Pullitzer Prize in 2011. The following is from Publishers Weekly: " Mukherjees debut book is a sweeping epic of obsession, brilliant researchers, dramatic new treatments, euphoric success and tragic failure, and the relentless battle by scientists and patients alike against an equally relentless, wily, and elusive enemy. From the first chemotherapy developed from textile dyes to the possibilities emerging from our understanding of cancer cells, Mukherjee shapes a massive amount of history into a coherent story with a roller-coaster trajectory: the discovery of a new treatment--surgery, radiation, chemotherapy--followed by the notion that if a little is good, more must be better, ending in disfiguring radical mastectomy and multidrug chemo so toxic the treatment ended up being almost worse than the disease. The first part of the book is driven by the obsession of Sidney Farber and philanthropist Mary Lasker to find a unitary cure for all cancers. (Farber ...
Ive been seeing Dr. Batalias for my dental implant. She is great and the staff is as well. Everyone is friendly. They walk you through the procedure and keep you as comfortable as possible, checking in with you throughout. My tooth extraction was pain free and recovery a breeze. I had my implant put in and it was pain free as well with only mild soreness. They even topically numb your gums before injecting novacaine. I wouldnt go anywhere else to have periodontal work or implants done. Update: I went to work the day after my implant, no swelling or pain and my co-workers couldnt believe it.. - Christina B.. ...

RTP youre so down the conspiracy rabbit hole Im afraid theres literally no response in the world that will get you to change the lies youve been suckered into believing.". You always know pro-vaxxers have no argument when they pull out the ol conspiracy theorist gambit.. There is nothing conspiratorial about saying people with the same vested interest act to protect that vested interest.. It is just common sense. Just as you wouldnt take a survey of accused felons to see if they are all innocent you cant ask people who manufacture or provide vaccines to provide an objective assessment of their safety and efficacy.. And by the way, everybody believes in terrorism, organised crime, gangs, hostile foreign armies etc.. Those things are all conspiracies. So you are a conspiracy theorist too.. "An answer for everything. When a vaccine has been proven to eliminate a disease…it didnt because the disease changed names.". Yep. That is what has happened. I even proved it by looking at potentially ...

Recent years have seen the development and advancement of numerous targeted treatments for lung cancer, and more are expected to become available to patients in the coming years. These treatments take advantage of a cancer patients specific driver mutation in their tumor cells and target the affected pathways. The therapies are highly effective when matched with the right mutation and are gaining in popularity for certain difficult-to-treat lung cancers. Unfortunately, the process of identifying the genetic mutations that match these targeted therapies is often challenging. A biopsy must be recovered from the tumor site-a process which, in and of itself, involves some risk and is not always feasible, depending on a patients condition.. To solve this problem, researchers are looking into less-invasive approaches to identify and test the genetic code of cancer cells in lung cancer patients. Dr. Geoffrey Oxnard, at the Dana Farber Cancer Institute, applied a fiscal year 2013 Lung Cancer Research ...
Dr. Winer characterized the latter as a "major problem worldwide; the cause of countless unnecessary deaths." Race, poverty, limited education, lack of insurance and less than optimum care all contribute to dismal outcomes. There are also age-related disparities…those under 30 and over 80 generally do worse, with people age 80 or older accounting for the highest breast cancer mortality.. After thanking all of his Dana Farber colleagues, Dr. Winer then shared his own story. He noted that he will be 60 years old tomorrow and until now, he had never spoken about having hemophilia. As a child he was frequently hospitalized and, following wisdom of the day, forced to eat a daily helping of peanut butter which was then thought to help blood coagulation. Dr. Winer froze the peanut butter to mask its taste. His arm was frequently bandaged and he was often asked if had broken it.. At the time, someone born with hemophilia could expect to live to age 20.. But when Dr. Winer turned 13, factor products ...
Celia Farber at The Truth Barrier interviews Professor of Molecular Biology and Rethinking AIDS board member Marco Ruggiero: "Everything about Ruggiero was improbable; A full Professor of Molecular Biology, Department of Experimental Pathology and Oncology at the University of Firenze, Italy, who suddenly appeared on the HIV/AIDS scene as somebody in whom the blood-soaked distinction between orthodox and dissident appeared to have dissolved. He was both. That is to say, he came from extremely mainstream, indeed orthodox channels, yet when he dissented from said orthodoxy on the question of HIVs pathogenesis, he apparently did so not only without trauma, but to the sound of cheering, from his Italian colleagues and peers.". ...
Obesity and aversion to exercise have become hallmarks of modern society -- and a new study suggests that a blood protein linked to these lifestyle factors may be an indicator for an increased risk of developing pancreatic cancer. Researchers from the Dana Farber Cancer Institute report their findings in the Aug. 15 issue of Cancer Research, a journal of the American Association for Cancer Research.
Winters lab, using techniques developed during his post-doc at Dana Farber, took a new approach by linking those small molecules to phthalimide derivatives. The small molecules still bind to the targeted transcription factor, but the linked phthalimide offers advantages: causing immediate degradation of the targeted protein, as well as more-rapid cell death (evidenced by cell chemistry and viability) than in competitive inhibition. Not only did they achieve target protein degradation in cultured human leukemia cells, but the approach also slowed leukemia progression in a mouse engrafted with human leukemia. This made phthalimide-linked small molecules the first such system to induce target-protein degradation in vivo.. "Using small molecules to understand and disrupt gene regulation in cancer is an exciting field in truly amazing times to do science," observed Winter. He is convinced that their work on targeted protein degradation will lead to novel drug candidates and be tested in patients ...

Billy Best was 16 years old in 1994 when diagnosed with Hodgkins Lymphoma. After five toxic chemo treatments, Billy ran away to avoid more chemo. Two months later his cancer returned. He went home after his parents agreed that he could try alternative treatments. His orthodox doctor claimed Billy would die without chemo. But Billy refused, and instead changed his diet to include lots of fresh vegetables and fruit, and eliminated processed foods, sugar, and red meat. One of the two natural treatments he used daily was nine ounces of Essiac, a "tea" brewed with organic herbs and pure water. Within two and a half months, tests at Dana Farber Cancer Institute Boston showed his cancer was completely gone, thanks to the natural treatments! Billy is now 38 years old, healthy, and his cancer never returned. His success story is one of thousands ...

Donna L. Farber (Columbia University Medical Center), recently provided her own definition of immunological memory: "I would define immunological memory on the basis of three main criteria. First, memory immune cells should be long-lived and maintained independently of stimulation or persistence of antigen, either through homeostatic turnover or long-term stable maintenance. Second, memory immune cells should be specific for a particular antigen or epitope. Third, a memory immune cell should be intrinsically changed by the previous encounter with antigen; for example, be functionally enhanced and respond more quickly and effectively to repeat encounters with a specific pathogen and/or antigen. Memory T cells and B cells certainly fulfil these criteria, but it could be extended to other types of immune cells, such as natural killer (NK) cells.". But, what are the molecular mechanisms required for the establishment and maintenance of immunological memory? Results from a new study, which focuses on ...
Despite her attempts to distance herself from the frivolity of the Vadim years, the public perceived her newfound radicalism through the prism of her immediately preceding incarnation. "Jane Fonda represented unrestrained sexuality to American audiences," observed the historian David Farber, author of The Age of Great Dreams: America in the 1960s , "and now supporters of the war found that sexuality turned against them." Tom Hayden, the antiwar activist whom Fonda married in 1973, theorized that her sex-kitten image, combined with her radical antiwar activism, had left her open to charges of "sleeping with the enemy"-both literally and metaphorically: "All these people expected her to be a certain kind of person who occupied, probably, a large part of their fantasies, and when your fantasy life is threatened, and Barbarella becomes revolutionary, its very upsetting." Apart from her being perceived as a Barbarella-gone-bad, much anti-Fonda animus stemmed from the fact that her immersion in ...
Dr. Gavathiotis had succeeded where many had failed: he had identified key spots on BAX where the protein can be turned off. "We found three different spots on the structure of the BAX protein that we can target to inactivate BAX,"says Dr. Gavathiotis. "You can think of them as BAXs Achilles heels.". Having made the move from the Dana Farber Cancer Institute/Harvard Medical School to Einstein in 2011, Dr. Gavathiotis is now looking for drugs that will target BAX and turn it off-thereby preventing the heart failure that all too often follows heart attacks. Like many Einstein researchers, he uses a computer as well as a microscope in his search.. "On the computer, we can screen thousands of molecules that potentially will bind to our target," he says. Once the computers mathematical algorithms and functions reveal molecules with BAX-binding in the laboratory that the molecules do indeed bind to BAX. "If so, well test those molecules in cells and in rodents to see if they can prevent death of ...

GLG Pharma has a number of promising new drug therapies for treating previously untreatable cancers and other cellular proliferative cellular diseases in Stage I and Stage II clinical trials. These new drugs are based on STAT3 inhibitor technology developed by the Dana Farber Cancer Institute (Boston, MA) and the Moffitt Cancer Center & Research Institute (Tampa, FL).. GLG Pharma therapies inhibit dysfunctional STAT3, a signaling protein essential to cell growth. In cancer cells, STAT3 proteins are continuously activated. There is no off mechanism to stop cancers from multiplying out of control.. GLGs STAT3 inhibitors have been shown to reverse acquired resistance to 13 different chemotherapies and targeted therapies (including Trastuzumab and Bortezomib) in ten different types of cancer (including breast cancer and multiple myeloma).. A GLG Pharma drug candidate is currently in ongoing Phase II clinical trials to study its effect as a monotherapy for patients with relapsed chronic lymphocytic ...

At age 35, on a beautiful summer day in 2013, the doctor who had done my endoscope two days before called me in for a follow up, two weeks earlier than scheduled. The day of the endoscope, he had said hed found what looked like a partially healed ulcer and that the lining of my stomach was inflamed. For about three months before this, Id been full after only a few bites of food (early satiation), slightly nauseous, and had subsequently lost 20 pounds. The doctor quickly told my husband and I that the biopsies had shown stomach cancer cells.. He scheduled me for blood work the next morning, a Friday, and a CT scan on Monday. Monday afternoon, my primary care physician called me in for the results. We brought my best friend with us. My primary care explained that there were inflamed lymph nodes in my abdomen and one near my clavicle, as well as some suspicious spots on my liver. She had already begun the referral process for me to Dana Farber Cancer Institute in Boston. The next day I went to ...
Tracy Farber, in the opening third of the novel, goes from describing herself not just as single but as "retired" from the dating game, to being head over heels for a man who seems, according to the constructs of the love story, to be the One. George -- tall, sensitive and handsome -- offers an engaging counterpoint to Tracys cultural Judaism and casual liberalism: Hes a former fundamentalist Christian who began his career in finance after immigrating to New York from Canada. But with him, Tracy is not the "kind of happy" with which shed grown familiar, but the "preposterous-happy" shed assumed was unrealistic to expect. In addition, she finds his personal happiness -- a brand manifest "not because his life has been happy, but because he knows its important to be" -- refreshingly mature and conveniently in line with her anti-Tolstoy thesis. ...
Ovaj lek je otkrio Dr. Yellapragada Subbarao, a prvi je koristio njegovu antifolatnu aktivnost Sidni Farber 1947. da indukuje remisiju kod dece sa leukemijom.[3][4] Aminopterin je kasnije prodavala kompanija Lederle Laboratories (Pearl River, Njujork) u SAD od 1953 do 1964 za pedijatrijsku leukemiju. Ta kompanije je u toku istog perioda prodavala blisko srodni antifolat metotreksat. Lederle Laboratories je zatim obustavila prodaju aminopterina u korist metotreksata zbog proizvodnih razloga. Aminopterin je u toku svog tržišnog veka korišćen i za tretman psorijaze u SAD. Ovaj lek je doveo do dramatičnog čišćenja lezija.[5]. Upotreba aminopterina u tretmanu raka je zamenjena 1950-tih godina metotreksatom zbog boljeg terapeutskog indeksa metotreksata.[6] Nedavno je došlo do obnavljanja interesa u aminopterin, tako da su u toku klinička ispitivanja sa ciljom suzbijanja leukemije.[7].
