TY - JOUR. T1 - Translocation t(12;19)(q13;q13.3). A new recurrent abnormality in acute nonlymphocytic leukemia with atypical erythropoiesis. AU - Paietta, Elisabeth M.. AU - Papenhausen, Peter. AU - Gucalp, Rasim A.. AU - Wiernik, Peter H.. PY - 1988. Y1 - 1988. N2 - A new reciprocal, apparently balanced translocation between chromosomes 12 and 19, t(12;19)(q13;q13.3), was detected in 5% ( 3 59) of patients with FAB M1 or M2 acute nonlymphocytic leukemia. In either case, this translocation was part of complex but different cytogenetic abnormalities. None of the patients had a significant response to therapy. In one instance, however, the translocation was found at first relapse after 2 years of complete remission, and no information regarding the karyotype at disease onset was available. Hematologically common to these patients were marked marrow erythroid hyperplasia and severely abnormal erythropoiesis despite normal serum B12 and folate levels. A direct association between t(12;19) and these ...
Nausea and vomiting continue to be distressing side effects of cancer chemotherapy. We recently reported (1) a randomized, double-blind study in which a single 10-mg dose of intravenous dexamethasone markedly reduced the gastrointestinal side effects of mildly emetogenic chemotherapy for outpatients with breast cancer. We now report the safety and efficacy of repeated doses of dexamethasone in eliminating the nausea and vomiting of induction chemotherapy for patients with acute nonlymphocytic leukemia.. All patients included in the study were adults with acute nonlymphocytic leukemia (at diagnosis or on relapse) at the Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania and were treated with ...

This is a pilot, open-label study of PEG-BCT-100 in patients with relapsed/refractory leukemia or lymphoma who have satisfied all inclusion/exclusion criteria.. Approximately 15 subjects will be enrolled or when 10 evaluable subjects are included in the study. Evaluable subjects are defined as subjects who have received 4 consecutive doses of PEG-BCT-100 1600U/kg within 6 weeks from the first 1600U/kg dose and completed the first disease response assessment.. After the initiation of trial treatment, safety parameters will be evaluated throughout the study. Adverse event (AE) will be graded according to the National Cancer Institute Common Toxicity Criteria for Adverse Events version 4.0 (NCI CTC AE v4). AE and serious AE (SAE) will be detected and recorded on the Case Report Forms (CRFs) until 15-28 days after the last dose of PEG-BCT-100.. Patients who achieve complete remission (CR)/complete remission with incomplete blood count recovery (CRi) following the 4 consecutive 1600U/kg doses may ...
Apoptosis is a form of cell death in which the cell actively participates. Apoptosis was induced in two human leukaemic cell lines, U937 and HL-60, by incubation with a diverse array of chemical agents. Cell death was assessed by gel electrophoresis, light microscopy and flow cytometry. It was demonstrated that apoptosis involved the formation of large kilobase pair DNA fragments (20-50, 145-245 and 580 kilobase pairs) prior to, or accompanying, internucleosomal cleavage. Degradation of DNA to large kilobase pair sizes also occurred in some forms of necrosis. These fragments were similar, but not identical, to those generated during apoptosis. The identity of the endonuclease(s) responsible for DNA cleavage to large kilobase pair fragments is as yet unknown. One suggestion is that topoisomerase II might be involved. Using an HL-60 subclone with reduced topoisomerase II expression, it was shown that topoisomerase II was not necessary for the formation of large kilobase pair DNA fragments and ...
For patients with advanced leukemia undergoing allogeneic hematopoietic stem cell transplantation (allo-HSCT), a major obstacle to success, especially in those with a high leukemia cell burden, is relapse of the underlying disease. To improve the outcome of allo-HSCT for refractory leukemia, we investigated the strategy of sequential intensified conditioning and early rapid tapering of prophylactic immunosuppressants therapy for graft-versus-host disease (GVHD) during the early stage after transplantation. A total of 51 patients with refractory leukemia (median age, 30.0 years; unfavorable karyotypes, 49%) received fludarabine (Flu) 30 mg/m(2)/day and cytarabine 2 g/m(2)/day (on days -10 to -6), 4.5 Gy total body irradiation (TBI)/day (on days -5 and -4), and cyclophosphamide (Cy) 60 mg/kg/day and etoposide 600 mg/day (on days -3 and -2) for conditioning. Cyclosporine A (CsA) was withdrawn rapidly in a stepwise fashion to avoid overwhelming GVHD reactions if acute GVHD (aGVHD) did not develop at ...
TY - JOUR. T1 - Normal Human Sera Cytotoxic to Cells of Human Acute Leukemia. AU - Schacter, Bernice. AU - Bias, Wilma B.. AU - Humphrey, Richard L.. PY - 1976/11. Y1 - 1976/11. N2 - Eight human sera from healthy individuals with no history of immunization with human transplantation antigens have demonstrated complement dependent cytotoxicity to cells of some patients with active acute leukemia. The antigen(s) detected by these sera are absent from normal and remission lymphocytes and appear most often in ALL patients with a high peripheral lymphoblast count. Some B and T lymphoblastoid cell lines carry the antigen(s) as evidenced by their ability to react with and absorb the antileukemia activity. The data support the existence of at least two overlapping specificities detected by these antileukemia sera. The leukemia antigen(s) show no strong correlation with any known HLA antigen. These observations provide evidence for a human leukemia blast associated antigen or set of antigens which may be ...

Some of the symptoms of leukemia in adults will look like other diseases. Symptoms like fever, chills, weakness, bleeding, abdominal pain and more could also be symptoms for other cancers. Learn more about adult leukemia and how to know the exact symptoms to be careful of. Leukemia is cancer of the blood cells. Leukemia occurs when the white cells in the bone marrow start producing at an abnormal rate. Adult leukemia occurs mainly after the age of 55 and equals 90% of the total leukemia cases reported. Adult leukemia can be seen mainly in four different types: acute and chronic lymphocytic leukemia and acute and chronic myeloid leukemia. Adult leukemia brings on many symptoms, such as fever, night sweats, weight loss and tiny red spots under the skin. ...
TY - JOUR. T1 - Erythrocyte characteristics in childhood acute leukemia. AU - Alter, Blanche P.. AU - Weiner, Michael A.. AU - Harris, Michael B.. PY - 1989. Y1 - 1989. N2 - Children with acute leukemia often have erythrocytes with fetal-like features. To examine the relationship of the type and phase of the leukemia to this observation, we studied 39 children with newly diagnosed acute lymphocytic leukemia (ALL) and 5 with acute nonlympho- cytic leukemia (ANLL). In addition, 22 patients were evaluated during chemotherapy, 3 off therapy, and 12 at the time of relapse. Macrocytosis and/or anisocytosis was noted in 70% of patients with ALL at the time of first diagnosis, 80% of patients with new ANLL, and ,90% of patients with ALL while on treatment. F cells were increased in 25% of ALL and 80% of ANLL at diagnosis and in 60% of ALL during chemotherapy. Hb F levels were elevated in 8, 40, and 30% of these groups, respectively. Nonleukemic controls for chemotherapy (six patients with osteogenic ...
Relative to the chronic health problems that plague adults, such as cardiovascular disease and diabetes, childhood leukemia is a relatively rare disease. From an epidemiological perspective, this makes childhood leukemia more challenging to study, because the incidence rate limits the scope of the investigation. Moreover, childhood leukemia is actually a catch-all term for an amalgam of disease subtypes, which are etiologically and clinically distinct; each one having its own set of causes and range of outcomes. In addition, each of the childhood leukemia subtypes is potentially multifactorial, with several circumstances contributing to the initiation of each leukemia case. To account for the complexity of the disease, researchers must consider the cumulative impact of joint exposure to an overwhelming mixture of chemicals as well as the unique genetic susceptibility inherent in each child. Together, these two factors - exposure and genetics - must be considered in the context of the childs ...
Childhood leukemia is a type of leukemia, usually acute lymphocytic leukemia (ALL), and a type of childhood cancer. The cure rate of childhood leukemia is generally higher than adult leukemia, approaching 90%, although side effects of treatment last into adulthood. The older aggressive treatments of cranial irradiation and anthracyclines (such as doxorubicin) caused increased risk of solid tumors, heart failure, growth retardation, and cognitive defects. Leukemia is a hematological malignancy or a cancer of the blood. It develops in the bone marrow, the soft inner part of bones where new blood cells are made. When a child has leukemia, the bone marrow produces white blood cells that do not mature correctly. Normal healthy cells only reproduce when there is enough space for them. The body will regulate the production of cells by sending signals of when to stop production. When a child has leukemia, the cells do not respond to the signals telling them when to stop and when to produce cells, ...
PRIMARY OBJECTIVES: I. To determine the recommended phase II doses for the combination of bortezomib and belinostat in patients with relapsed or refractory acute leukemia (AL), myelodysplasia (MDS), and chronic myelogenous leukemia in blast crisis. SECONDARY OBJECTIVES: I. Determine safety and tolerance and describe the toxicities of the combination. II. To demonstrate adequate methods for the assessment of pharmacodynamic response of leukemia cells from the bone marrow and/or peripheral blood in terms of effects on NF-kB (nuclear RelA by immunofluorescence microscopy), NF-kB dependent proteins XIAP and Bcl-xL, and BIM, and document pharmacodynamic responses observed in the course of this study. III. To document activity of the combination observed in the course of this study. OUTLINE: Patients receive belinostat IV over 30 minutes on days 1-5 and 8-12 and bortezomib IV on days 1, 4, 8, and 11. Treatment repeats every 21 days for up to 12 courses in the absence of disease progression or ...
Administering Imbruvica with CAR-T cell therapy improved outcomes in patients with chronic lymphocytic leukemia, according to recent research.
BACKGROUND: Despite advancements in the treatment of childhood leukemia, socioeconomic status (SES) may potentially affect disease prognosis. This study aims to evaluate whether SES is associated with survival from childhood leukemia.. METHODS: The US National Cancer Institute Surveillance, Epidemiology and End Results Program (SEER) 1973-2010 data were analyzed; thereafter, results were meta-analyzed along with those from survival (cohort) studies examining the association between SES indices and survival from childhood leukemia (end-of-search date: 31 March 2014). Random-effects models were used to calculate pooled effect estimates (relative risks, RRs); meta-regression was also used.. RESULTS: We included 29 studies yielding 28 804 acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL), 3208 acute myeloblastic leukemia (AML) and 27 650 any leukemia (denoting joint reporting of all subtypes) cases. According to individual-level composite SES indices, children from low SES suffered from nearly twofold higher ...
Background: Acute leukemia (AL) is a hematologic malignancy which posts a serious hazard to peoples health, especially that of childrens. At present, chemotherapy remains the most important therapeutic measure for AL. But there are 30% of patients who do not response to chemotherapy and 40%-60% of patients who become irresponsive eventually after relapse, which belong to refractory acute leukemia. Refractory acute leukemia (RAL), characterized by poor response to chemotherapy, low remission rate of induction chemotherapy and short-term survival, is a challenge for the treatment of AL. How to improve chemotherapy remission rate has always been essential to the treatment of refractory acute leukemia. To observe the effect of Compound Zhe Bei Granules (CZBG) combined with chemotherapy to improve clinical remission rate of patients with refractory acute leukemia, we designed this randomized multicenter, double-blind, placebo-controlled clinical trial under the guideline of Good Clinical Practice ...

Acute leukemias are a collection of bone marrow and lymphoid disorders that result from establishment of a malignant stem cell population. Presentation of a patient to medical care with a suspected acute leukemia should be considered a medical emergency, and rapidly involve a specialist in hematologic malignancies and referral to a tertiary care facility with expertise in treatment of patients with acute leukemia. Left untreated, acute leukemias are rapidly fatal within days to weeks of presentation, but with appropriate supportive measures and therapeutic interventions a significant number of patients are cured. For those in whom a cure cannot be achieved, there is still the potential for a substantial period of good quality life. Because of the acuity of these diseases and consequences of their treatment, it is not infrequent that patients with acute leukemias are seen in the setting of a medical ICU.45 It is especially important to understand that acute leukemias develop rapidly and the ...

In a new pre-clinical study published this week in the journal Leukemia, the research team of Childrens Hospital Los Angeles investigator Hisham Abdel-Azim, MD, MS, worked with colleagues to engineer T-cells to identify and target multiple sites on acute lymphoblastic leukemia cells instead of just one. The early collaboration points the way to future clinical trials to test the therapy.

Leukemia or leukaemia is a cancer of white blood cells and bone marrow. When a person has leukemia, the body creates too many white blood cells (leukocytes). There are many kinds of leukemia. Leukemia is part of a bigger group of diseases, the blood cancers (hematological neoplasms). Without treatment, leukemia may lead to death within weeks, months, or years. The life of the person depends upon the type of leukemia. In 2000, about 256,000 children and adults around the world developed some form of leukemia, and 209,000 died from it.[1] About 90% of all leukemias are seen in adults.[2] ...
Increasing resistance to chemotherapeutic regimes remains a serious problem in the treatment of acute myeloid leukaemia. We have shown that phosphatidylinositol (PI) 3-kinase inhibition significantly sensitises the AML derived cell line, HL60 to chemotherapeutic drug- and Fas-induced apoptosis. PI3-kinase inhibition significantly potentiates cytotoxic drug-induced c-jun N-terminal kinase (JNK) activation, reported to be a requirement for apoptosis. However, JNK inhibition does not enhance cell viability following treatment with drug and inhibitor. Furthermore, PI3-kinase inhibition significantly increases sensitivity to apoptosis mediated by an exogenous receptor agonist, again by a JNK independent mechanism. These results suggest that PI3-kinase inhibitors could be of significant therapeutic importance, lowering the threshold for apoptosis induced by both chemotherapy and cell-mediated immune response.

It also may depend on certain features of the leukemia cells. Your doctor also considers your symptoms and general health.. People with acute leukemia need to be treated right away. The goal of treatment is to destroy signs of leukemia in the body and make symptoms go away. This is called a remission. After people go into remission, more therapy may be given to prevent a relapse. This type of therapy is called consolidation therapy or maintenance therapy. Many people with acute leukemia can be cured.. If you have chronic leukemia without symptoms, you may not need cancer treatment right away. Your doctor will watch your health closely so that treatment can start when you begin to have symptoms. Not getting cancer treatment right away is called active surveillance.. When treatment for chronic leukemia is needed, it can often control the disease and its symptoms. People may receive maintenance therapy to help keep the cancer in remission, but chronic leukemia can seldom be cured with chemotherapy. ...
Leukemia is a cancer of the bone marrow and blood. The four major types of leukemia are acute myeloid leukemia (AML), acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL), chronic myeloid leukemia (CML) and chronic lymphocytic leukemia (CLL). Myelodisplastic syndrome (MDS) is a premalignant blood disorder that often develops into AML.. All leukemias originate in the bone marrow where a stem cell undergoes a mutation and becomes a leukemic cell. Once this leukemic cell mutates, it multiplies into billions of cells. These cells, called leukemic blasts, do not function normally but grow and survive better than normal cells. The presence of the leukemic blasts blocks the production of normal white blood cells which are key for a proper functioning of the immune system. As a result, the number of healthy white blood cells is usually lower than normal, severely affecting a patients immunoprotection.. Acute leukemias (AML and ALL) are rapidly progressing diseases whereas chronic leukemias (CML and CLL) usually ...
The 4 major leukemia types are established endpoints for descriptive (37) and analytic (38-41) epidemiologic studies; however, it is increasingly clear from molecular studies that these categories do not represent homogeneous groups of similar diseases but instead constitute heterogeneous groups of related diseases. Within the major types, the etiologies of the component diseases remain largely unclear and are very difficult to study because of the small numbers. For this reason, we and others have focused on the broad-based major types, recognizing that the mixing of subgroups might weaken or obscure any underlying association signals.. Therefore, it is quite striking to report that leukemia incidence varied significantly between birth cohorts for each major leukemia type in men and women except female AMLs; changes on the order of 1% per birth year or 20% per generation were observed. Our results are consistent with the hypothesis that many leukemia risks among adults are substantially ...
Leukemia, like lymphoma and multiple myeloma, is a cancer of the blood and bone marrow and is one of the most common cancers among 9/11 responders and survivors. Turley Hansen has represented many claimants with leukemia since cancer was added to the list of illnesses covered under the Zadroga Act.. Leukemia begins in cells in the bone marrow. Over time, the leukemia cancer cells suppress the development of normal cells. There are different types of leukemia, and the rate at which leukemia develops and how the cells replace the normal blood and marrow cells are different with each type of leukemia. Types of leukemia include:. ...

Gutierrez hopes this discovery will lower resistance to asparaginase among the children who come to Dana-Farber/Boston Childrens with leukemia. Beyond that, he believes his teams approach will inspire other researchers to seek out the causes of resistance to other leukemia drugs, with each new discovery improving the odds of survival for patients not helped by current therapies.. The discovery may also offer a less toxic alternative to leukemia patients who are cured by current treatments. Thats important because some leukemia drugs can have serious side effects decades later. Sometimes youll get through this whole thing, your leukemia will be cured, and then five, ten, 20 years later youll have a late effect - heart failure, for example, Gutierrez says. So for patients who are cured, I hope this will actually be able to replace some of the most toxic elements of standard therapy.. Finally, Gutierrez notes that the team doesnt fully understand why the two-drug treatment hits leukemia ...

Leukemia is a cancer of the blood cells that most commonly occurs in adults older than 55. Additionally, leukemia is the most common cancer in children younger than 15. Leukemia typically involves white blood cells, which are the bodys natural defense against infection. However, the type of leukemia a patient develops depends on which blood cells become cancerous. In healthy people, white blood cells grow and divide in an orderly fashion as needed. But in patients with leukemia, the white blood cells produced are abnormal and dont function properly. Leukemia can be either acute (fast growing) or chronic (slower growing). There are currently more than 300,000 people estimated to be living with or in remission (signs of disease disappear) from leukemia in the US.

There are two promising new treatments, but more research is needed before doctors will know more about which patients are most likely to benefit and before these treatments will be widely available.. Researchers at two hospitals in Philadelphia used an experimental treatment for ALL on 25 children and 5 adults.1 The children were seen at Childrens Hospital of Philadelphia by Dr. Shannon Maude and Dr. Stephan Grupp and their colleagues. The adult patients were treated at the University of Pennsylvania School of Medicine under the care of Dr. Noelle Frey. These patients all had relapsed several times or had failed to respond to any treatment. All had only a few weeks or months to live. The scientists took blood from each patient and separated out the white blood cells. These cancerous white blood cells were then genetically modified so that they could recognize and attack the diseased cells that cause the leukemia. The genetically modified cells were then put back in the patient using a blood ...

There are four types of leukemia. Two types, acute lymphocytic leukemia (ALL) and acute myeloid leukemia (AML), are categorized as acute because they spread quickly. With these types of leukemia, cancerous cells replace normal white blood cells that fight infection, red blood cells that carry oxygen to the body, and platelets that help blood clot.. The other two types, chronic lymphocytic leukemia (CLL) and chronic myeloid leukemia (CML), are classified as chronic, meaning they develop and progress gradually. When cancerous cells replace healthy cells, the body is susceptible to other adverse health effects such as infection, bleeding and anemia.. In any form of leukemia, cancerous cells replacing the healthy blood cells increase the bodys susceptibility to infection.. Close. ...
Leukemia is the most common cancer in children and teens, accounting for almost 1 out of 3 cancers. Most childhood leukemias are acute lymphocytic leukemia (ALL). Most of the remaining cases are acute myeloid leukemia (AML). Chronic leukemias are rare in children.
Leukemia (Leukaemia) is a cancer of the blood cells. It is the most common type of blood cancer and affects 10 times as many adults as children. Most people diagnosed with leukemia are over 50 years old. No one knows why some people develop leukemia and others do not. However, scientists have identified some risk factors for the disease. Most people who have known risk factors do not get leukemia, while many who do get the disease have none of these risk factors. During the early stages of leukemia, there may be no symptoms. Many of the symptoms of leukemia dont become apparent until a large number of normal blood cells are crowded out by leukemia cells ...

Growing evidence indicates that aberrant DNA hypermethylation is associated with leukemogenesis, chemotherapy resistance, and relapse. DNA methyltransferase inhibitors such as azacitidine and decitabine have been shown to reverse drug resistance and prime leukemia cells to cytotoxic agents in vitro. Here we report the first pediatric phase 1 study using azacitidine in sequence with chemotherapy in patients with relapsed/refractory leukemia. Fourteen patients were enrolled, twelve with acute myeloid leukemia (AML) and two with acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL). All patients received azacitidine 75mg/m2/day subcutaneously for 5 days, followed by fludarabine 30mg/m2/day and cytarabine 2gm/m2/day intravenously for 5 days. The median number of prior regimens was 2 (range 1-5). Toxicities were typical of intensive chemotherapy. Febrile neutropenia and infection were the most common non-hematologic toxicities. No patients experienced dose-limiting toxicity. Seven of twelve AML patients achieved ...
About 3,800 new cases of acute lymphocytic leukemia (ALL) are diagnosed each year in the United States. It is the most common type of leukemia under the age of 15. Children are most likely to develop the disease, but it can occur at any age. Acute lymphocytic leukemia may be called by several names, including acute lymphoid leukemia and acute lymphoblastic leukemia.. ALL results from an acquired (not inherited) genetic injury to the DNA of a single cell in the bone marrow. The disease is often referred to as acute lymphoblastic leukemia because the leukemic cell that replaces the normal marrow is the (leukemic) lymphoblast. The effects are: 1) the uncontrolled and exaggerated growth and accumulation of cells called lymphoblasts or leukemic blasts, which fail to function as normal blood cells and 2) the blockade of the production of normal marrow cells, leading to a deficiency of red cells (anemia), platelets (thrombocytopenia), and normal white cells (especially neutrophils, i.e., ...
Welcome to the sixteenth part of a series on Hemato-oncology.. Question: Dr. Chiragbhai, thank you for explaining to us about treatment of ALL - Acute Lymphoid Leukemia. It was good to know that this leukemia has a cure rate as high as 60-90%.. Now, can you tell us about the Chronic Leukemias?. Answer: Chronic leukemias include mainly CML i.e. Chronic Myeloid Leukemia and CLL i.e. Chronic Lymphoid Leukemia. They behave very differently from acute leukemias, and are mostly treated as outpatient, often with tablets. In fact, most such patients are not ready to believe that they have leukemia and yet we are giving them very good prognosis.. Que: Yes, Leukemia word sounds so scary. How do the chronic leukemias present?. Ans: First, we will talk about CML i.e. Chronic Myeloid Leukemia, since it is the most exciting disease for hematologists. This is the disease where underlying specific genetic abnormality i.e. Philadelphia chromosome, was first identified many years ago. Also, CML is the first ...

Fucosyltransferase (FT) activity of normal lymphocytes, normal granulocytes, and various types of human leukemic cells and electrofocusing pattern of FT activity in human leukemic cells and normal lymphocytes were examined using asialofetuin as an acceptor. Levels of FT activity in normal lymphocytes were higher than those of normal granulocytes in which FT activity was almost undetectable. The FT activity was higher in blast cells of acute myeloblastic leukemia and chronic myelogenous leukemia in blast crisis than in blast cells of acute lymphoblastic leukemia and the chronic phase of chronic myelogenous leukemia. The level of FT activity was lower in cells of chronic lymphocytic leukemia than that of normal lymphocytes, but it was higher than that of normal granulocytes. Three main isoelectric forms of FT in leukemic blast cells were identified by isoelectrofocusing, and they each had a characteristic focusing point: around pH 4.5 (peak 1); pH 4.9 (peak 2); and pH 5.2 (peak 3). In blast cells ...
Research led by St. Jude Childrens Research Hospital scientists has identified a possible lead in treatment of two childhood leukemia subtypes known for their dramatic loss of chromosomes and poor treatment outcomes.
This study was conducted to characterize the activity of PPARγ nuclear receptor signaling pathway in leukemia cells. Leukemic cell lines showed high expression of PPARγ protein in both myeloid and lymphoid cells including Hodgkins disease and multiple myeloma cells. Although the presence of PPARγ has been reported in leukemic cell lines (44, 54, 55), we report here the frequent expression of PPARγ in primary leukemia samples including AML and CLL. PPARγ mRNA expression in primary AML was highest in myelomonocytic AML (M4) subtypes. These data suggest that CDDO and other PPARγ ligands might be particularly useful in the treatment of myelomonocytic subtypes of AML/myelodysplastic syndrome. This was also noted in a recent clinical trial in which PPARγ ligands exerted antileukemia activity in patients with chronic myelomonocytic leukemia (56).. It has been reported that PPARγ ligands can induce leukemic cells to differentiate toward macrophages (44, 57). In our study, 15-d-PGJ2, BRL49653, ...

Researchers Develop New Potential Drug for Rare Leukemia; Separate Study Suggests Possible Role in Prostate Cancer Treatment ANN ARBOR, Mich. - Researchers at the University of Michigan have developed a new drug candidate that shows potential in laboratory studies against a rare type of acute leukemia. Additional studies suggest the same compound could play a role in prostate cancer treatment as well.. The compound was developed in the labs of Jolanta Grembecka, Ph.D., and Tomasz Cierpicki, Ph.D., who have been working for several years to identify a small-molecule inhibitor that would block the interaction between the protein menin and MLL fusion proteins that cause a rare type of acute leukemia.. So-called MLL fusion leukemia can occur in both adults and children. It represents up to 10 percent of acute leukemia in adults, and about 70 percent of acute leukemia in infants. Current treatments are not very effective, with just over a third of patients surviving five years.. Protein-protein ...
This study is a case-control study of incident childhood leukemia (all subtypes) diagnosed since mid-1995. Children newly diagnosed with leukemia are enrolled in the study. Criteria for inclusion in the study are: under 15 years of age, no prior cancer diagnosis, residency in the state of California at the time of diagnosis, and availability of an English or Spanish speaking parent or guardian. Pre-treatment biological specimens, including bone marrow and peripheral blood, are obtained for analysis in the UCB lab of Dr M. Smith. The lab will use Fluorescence In Situ Hybridization (FISH) to detect chromosome specific aneuploidy and translocations. A number of chromosomal translocations, including t(9;22) and t(8;21), are known to be centrally involved in the development of childhood leukemia. Molecular characterization of the cases with translocations may provide insight into the timing of critical exposures and the nature of the etiological agent involved.. One comparison subject (control) is ...
Intermittent fasting may help combat the most common type of childhood leukemia - acute lymphoblastic leukemia - according to new research published in the journal Nature Medicine.Acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL), also called acute lymphocytic leukemia, is a cancer that begins in immature versions of white blood cells in the bone marrow, called lymphocytes.. There are two types of ALL: B cell ALL, which begins in the B lymphocytes (B cells), and T cell ALL, which begins in the T lymphocytes (T cells).. ALL stops B cells and T cells from maturing. As a result, large numbers of immature, leukemic cells are released into the bloodstream, outweighing the number of healthy white blood cells, red blood cells, and platelets.. The reduction in healthy white blood cells makes a patient vulnerable to infection, while low levels of platelets and red blood cells can lead to unusual bleeding and anemia. Other signs and symptoms of ALL include fatigue, loss of appetite, fever, rib pain, and bone or joint ...
TY - JOUR. T1 - Banding in leukemia. T2 - Techniques and implications. AU - Whang-Peng, J.. PY - 1979/1/1. Y1 - 1979/1/1. N2 - The presence of the Ph1 chromosome in the hematopoietic cells of individuals with apparent hematologic disorders is virtually diagnostic of CML. In patients without any hematologic or clinical symptoms, the presence of the Ph1 chromosome can be an indicator of the preleukemic state. Published data in cytogenetic studies of acute leukemia hae shown that approximately half the patients exhibit chromosomal abnormalities in their bone marrow. Rowley and Potter reviewed the available banding data for acute nonlymphocytic leukemia and noted that the incidence of chromosomally abnormal patients was underestimated by at least 10-20%. They found various nonrandom chromosome changes including an additional #8 chromosome, the loss of chromosome #7, a gain or loss of #21, frequent structural rearrangements of #8 and 21, and the loss of a sex chromosome. Less banding data are ...
Author(s): Zhang, Yue | Advisor(s): Zhang, Dong-Er | Abstract: Acute Myloid Leukemia (AML) is one of the most common leukemia in adults with poor five years survival even with modern chemotherapy treatment. New strategies need to be developed in order to enhance the survival of AML patients. Interferon-α (IFN-α), a type I IFN, is a known as an anti-tumor agent, which used to clinical treat AML because of its anti-proliferative effect and immune response. However, the clinical trials show divergent results because of the instability and delivery difficulty. USP18 is a negative regulator of Type I IFN signaling pathway. Knockout Usp18 can enhance and prolong the Type I IFN pathway. Here, we use AE9a-included leukemia mouse models that reflect the genetics and pathology of human acute myeloid leukemia to study the effect of Usp18 loss in leukemia development and to discover possible new therapeutic targets for leukemia. Results show that deletion of Usp18 delayed leukemia propagation in both the AE9a
The relation between tobacco use and leukemia was evaluated in a population-based case-control study of 578 white men with leukemia and 820 controls conducted in Iowa and Minnesota during 1981-1984. Risks were significantly elevated for all leukemia (odds ratio (OR) = 1.4) and chronic lymphocytic leukemia (OR = 1.6) for both tobacco users and cigarette smokers. There were significantly elevated risks for cigarette smokers of longest duration for all leukemia (OR = 1.6), chronic myelogenous leukemia (OR = 3.3), and chronic lymphocytic leukemia (OR = 1.6).

N2 - To determine the pathways between treatment intensity (age at diagnosis, dosage of chemotherapy [intrathecal methotrexate; IT-MTX] and cranial radiation [CRT]) and various psychosocial outcomes, review of medical records and structured interviews were carried out in 510 adult survivors of childhood leukemia. Structural equation modeling revealed that higher treatment intensity during childhood (indicated by treatment with high-dose CRT, low-dose IT-MTX, and adjusted by younger age at diagnosis) predicted more health-compromising behaviors as adults through lower educational achievement. Additionally, higher childhood ...
Chronic Leukemia : Chronic leukemias -- chronic myeloid leukemia and chronic lymphocytic leukemia -- occur mostly in adults and are extremely rare in children and young persons. Chronic lymphocytic leukemia has the highest familial incidence of the leukemias.
BACKGROUND. Chimeric antigen receptor (CAR) T cells can induce remission in highly refractory leukemia and lymphoma subjects, yet the parameters for achieving sustained relapse-free survival are not fully delineated. METHODS. We analyzed 43 pediatric and young adult subjects participating in a phase I trial of defined composition CD19 CAR T cells (ClinicalTrials.gov, NCT02028455). CAR T cell phenotype, function, and expansion, as well as starting material T cell repertoire, were analyzed in relationship to therapeutic outcome (defined as achieving complete remission within 63 days) and duration of leukemia-free survival and B cell aplasia. RESULTS. These analyses reveal that initial therapeutic failures (n = 5) were associated with attenuated CAR T cell expansion and/or rapid attrition of functional CAR effector cells following adoptive transfer. The CAR T products were similar in phenotype and function when compared with products resulting in sustained remissions. However, the initial apheresed ...

Leukemia represents around 3.7% of all new cancer cases and 4.1% of cancer-related deaths in the US, and around 3% of new cancer cases and cancer-associated mortality in the UK. The NIH reports that 60.6% of people survive 5 years or more after a diagnosis of leukemia (based on data from SEER 18 2007-2013). The causes of leukemia are not fully understood, although a variety of genetic, epigenetic and environmental factors are thought to serve a role. Smoking, ionizing radiation, certain chemicals and prior chemotherapy have all been associated with leukemogeneis. Since the early 1990s, the incidence rates of leukemia have gradually increased, for which many reasons could be speculated.. Treatment usually comprises a combination of standard chemotherapy, radiotherapy, targeted therapy and bone marrow transplant. Exciting novel therapies for the treatment of leukemias are being researched, including immunotherapies, such as CAR T-cells and bispecific antibodies, in addition to novel combination ...

Little Molly Campbell has cleared the first hurdle in her treatment.. Weve been following her journey since she was diagnosed with Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia on Christmas Eve last year.. The three-month-old, began her first round of chemotherapy in early January. That stage of treatment has been completed and her most recent tests show her to be in clinical remission.. Clinical remission is defined by a benchmark occurring when less than five percent of the cells, produced by the patients bone marrow, are leukemia cells. Mollys bone marrow is currently producing three percent leukemia cells.. Paul Pearson, a friend and spokesperson for the family says, It means she has a chance to survive. What it means is its cleared the way for stronger chemotherapy drugs.. Molly was essentially a newborn when she was diagnosed. She is a very young child, fighting a very rare form of leukemia. Her condition is difficult to treat and her unusually young age makes her situation even more precarious, as ...
I am campaigning on behalf of a very special 15 year old girl who is campaigning to become the Leukemia & Lymphoma Societys Woman of the Year. The mission of the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society is to cure leukemia, lymphoma, Hodgkins disease and myeloma, and improve the quality of life of patients and their families. Man & Woman of the Year is national campaign to with a goal of raising over one million dollars to that end this year. The very special 15 years old I am referring to is Lisette Watters. When Lisette was only 4 years old, her younger sister Caroline was diagnosed with Acute Mylogenous Leukemia, and Carolines best chance of survival was to get a bone marrow transplant. It turned out that Lisette was a perfect match for her sister, and this brave little girl donated her marrow, saving her sisters life. Now, 11 years later, Lisette is campaigning for the Leukemia & Lymphoma Societys Woman of the Year. So I am encouraging you today to donate to Lisettes campaign and help make her the
Title. Comparing Three Standard Treatments in Older Adult Patients with Acute Non-Lymphocytic Leukemia and Studying the Effect of GM-CSF to See Whether It May Improve Initial Response to Chemotherapy (A Phase III Trial). Sponsor. Eastern Cooperative Oncology Group through the NCI-sponsored Cancer Cooperative Group Program. Purpose of the Study. To determine whether one of three chemotherapy drugs (daunorubicine, idarubicin and mitoxantrone) is superior when used in the treatment of acute non-lymphocytic leukemia in adults over age 55 and to see whether receiving GM-CSF, a stimulator of blood cell production in the bone marrow, before the start of treatment can improve a patients response to chemotherapy.. Results. No difference was observed in the complete response rate (the disappearance of signs of cancer in response to treatment) among the three drugs studied. Patients who received GM-CSF before the chemotherapy did not show improved response to therapy compared with placebo. Patients who ...
In general, your oncologist will consider your age and type of leukemia you have to recommend you an appropriate treatment. Leukemia treatment is generally less intensive in patients aged over 60 years.. Chemotherapy. Chemotherapy in the treatment of chronic lymphocytic leukemia is, in many cases, unnecessary. Mild chemotherapy can be used to reduce the number of white blood cells and reduce the size of lymph nodes and spleen.. Treatment of acute, myeloid and lymphoid leukemia is based on Anti-mitotic Drugs (anti-mitotic chemotherapy); certain substances that are often used in the chemotherapy of these types of leukemia include vincristine and vinblastine. Those medications inhibit mitotic cellular division, and prevent the damage of the disease in the body. However, the treatment destroys not only the tumor cells but also the normal cells in your bone marrow, which makes you susceptible to infections, bleeding and anemia. A bone marrow transplant may also be considered. Sometimes the therapy ...
An 18-month-old girl was diagnosed with pre-pre-B ALL/t(4;11) leukemia, which during the treatment and after matched bone marrow transplantation (BMT), underwent two consecutive switches from lymphoid to myeloid lineage and vice versa. The high expression of HOXA9 and FLT3 genes remaining genotypically stable in a leukemia throughout phenotypic switches, suggests that this leukemia may have originated as a common B/myeloid progenitors.. ...
The 8p11 myeloproliferative syndrome (EMS) is associated with translocations that disrupt the FGFR1 gene. To date, 8 fusion partners of FGFR1 have been identified.

Leukemia is cancer of the white blood cells. White blood cells (also called leukocytes or WBCs) fight infections and other diseases.. In leukemia, the bone marrow (spongy material inside the bones) makes many white blood cells that arent normal. These abnormal WBCs crowd the bone marrow and get into the bloodstream. Unlike healthy white blood cells, they cant protect the body from infections.. Sometimes leukemia (loo-KEE-mee-uh) spreads from the bone marrow to other parts of the body, like the chest, brain, or liver.. Leukemia is the most common type of cancer in children. But most kids and teens treated for leukemia are cured of the disease.. ...
