DORLHIAC-LLACER, P.E. et al. In vitro cytotoxicity of the LDE: daunorubicin complex in acute myelogenous leukemia blast cells. Braz J Med Biol Res [online]. 2001, vol.34, n.10, pp.1257-1263. ISSN 1414-431X. http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0100-879X2001001000004.. Acute myelogenous leukemia (AML) blast cells show high-affinity degradation of low-density lipoprotein (LDL), suggesting an increased expression of cellular LDL receptors. LDE is a lipid microemulsion easily synthesized in vitro which is known to mimic the metabolic pathway of LDL. We used LDE as a carrier for daunorubicin and assayed the cytotoxicity of the complex using AML blast cells since RT-PCR analysis showed that AML cells express LDL receptor mRNA. The LDE:daunorubicin complex killed 46.7% of blast cells and 20.2% of normal bone marrow cells (P,0.001; Student t-test). Moreover, this complex destroyed AML blast cells as efficiently as free daunorubicin. Thus, LDE might be a suitable carrier of chemotherapeutic agents targeting these ...

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

Activating mutations of the FMS-like tyrosine kinase 3 gene (FLT3) occur in approximately one-third of patients with acute myeloid leukaemia (AML) and predict for a poor outcome. Heat shock protein 90 (Hsp90) is a molecular chaperone that is frequently used by cancer cells to stabilise mutant oncoproteins. Mutant FLT3 is chaperoned by Hsp90 in primary AML blasts whereas unmutated FLT3 is not, making Hsp90 inhibitors potentially useful therapeutically. The present study showed that inhibition of Hsp90 by 17- allylamino-17-demethoxygeldanamycin (17-AAG) was cytotoxic to primary AML cells expressing mutant FLT3. Inhibition of Hsp90 results in altered downstream signalling effects in primary AML cells with disruption of Janus kinase-signal transducer and activator of transcription (JAK-STAT), mitogen-activated protein kinase and phosphatidylinositol 3/AKT signalling pathways. Co-treatment of blasts with 17-AAG and cytarabine resulted in a synergistic or additive effect in approximately 50% of AML ...
CEBPA mutations in patients with de novo acute myeloid leukemia: data analysis in a Chinese population Long Su, SuJun Gao, XiaoLiang Liu, YeHui Tan, Lu Wang, Wei Li Cancer Center, The First Hospital, Jilin University, Changchun, Peoples Republic of China Background: This study was aimed to explore the clinical characteristics and prognoses of acute myeloid leukemia (AML) patients with CEBPA mutations. Patients and methods: Three hundred and forty-five patients with de novo AML were retrospectively analyzed with regard to CEBPA mutations, clinical characteristics, therapeutic responses, and long-term outcomes. Results: CEBPA mutations were detected in 59 patients (17.10%), with 47 cases harboring double mutations and 12 cases harboring single mutations. In those with a normal karyotype (NK), 44 cases (25.29%) were detected with CEBPA mutations. The following characteristics were observed in CEBPA-mutated patients: most (66.10%) of them were M1 or M2; they presented with higher peripheral white blood
M2 is a subtype of AML (Acute Myeloid Leukemia). It is also known as "Acute Myeloblastic Leukemia with Maturation". Acute myeloid leukemia (AML) is a type of cancer affecting blood cells that eventually develop into non-lymphocyte white blood cells. The disease originates from the bone marrow, the soft inner portion of select bones where blood stem cells develop into either lymphocyte or in this particular condition, myeloid cells. This acute disease prevents bone marrow cells from properly maturing, thus causing an accumulation of immature myeloblast cells in the bone marrow. Acute myeloid leukemia is more lethal than chronic myeloid leukemia, a disease that affects the same myeloid cells, but at a different pace. Many of the immature blast cells in acute myeloid leukemia have a higher loss of function and thus, a higher inability to carry out normal functions than those more developed immature myeloblast cells in chronic myeloid leukemia (ODonnell et al. 2012). Acute in acute myeloid leukemia ...

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

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

OBJECTIVE: To elucidate the regulatory effect of microRNA-34b on the occurrence of pediatric acute myeloid leukemia and the underlying mechanism. PATIENTS
This is a prospective, non-therapeutic study, assessing the significance of minimal residual disease (MRD) at three different time points in relation to allogeneic HCT for pediatric AML. The study is a collaboration between the Pediatric Blood and Marrow Transplant Consortium (PBMTC) and the Resource for Clinical Investigations in Blood and Marrow Transplantation (RCI-BMT) of the Center for International Blood and Marrow Transplant Research (CIBMTR). The study will enroll pediatric AML patients who undergo myeloablative HCT at PBMTC sites. The eligibility criteria for this non-therapeutic study mirror widely accepted criteria for allogeneic HCT in pediatric AML.. The study tests the hypothesis that assessment of pre-transplant and post-transplant MRD predicts 2-year outcomes following transplant. Two MRD methodologies are being studied: flow cytometry and WT1 PCR. The secondary hypothesis is that combining these 2 methodologies will improve the accuracy in predicting 2-year outcomes following ...
Acute myeloid (myelogenous, myelocytic, myeloblastic) leukemia (AML) consists of a group of malignant disorders characterized by the replacement of normal bone marrow with abnormal, primitive hematopoietic cells. Although the cure rate has improved, treatments are associated with notable morbidity and mortality.

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

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

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

In this issue of Clinical Cancer Research, Parkin and colleagues report on the identification of a subset of adult acute myelogenous leukemia (AML), in which the tumor suppressor NF1 is functionally inactive, resulting in increased Ras signaling and sensitivity to mammalian target of rapamycin (mTOR) inhibition (1). The authors found that AML CD34+/C38− cells with absent NF1 expression are sensitive to treatment with rapamycin, thus implicating mTOR as a therapeutic target within the leukemia-initiating compartment of a small subgroup of adult AML patients.. AML is a highly malignant hematopoietic neoplasm, characterized by a poor prognosis, especially in older patients. In addition to age, the major prognostic marker is cytogenetics, and the mutational status of selected genes (e.g., NPM1, FLT3) strongly influence prognosis in the 50% of AML cases that are cytogenetically normal (2). The treatment of AML has changed little in the past several decades, and the discovery of additional ...
Its important to know your acute myeloid leukemia (AML) subtype because it plays a large part in determining the type of treatment youll receive.
S100A8 and S100A9 are calcium-binding proteins predominantly expressed by neutrophils and monocytes and play key roles in both normal and pathological inflammation. Recently, both proteins were found to promote tumor progression through the establishment of premetastatic niches and inhibit antitumor immune responses. Although S100A8 and S100A9 have been studied in solid cancers, their functions in hematological malignancies remain poorly understood. However, S100A8 and S100A9 are highly expressed in acute myeloid leukemia (AML), and S100A8 expression has been linked to poor prognosis in AML. We identified a small subpopulation of cells expressing S100A8 and S100A9 in AML mouse models and primary human AML samples. In vitro and in vivo analyses revealed that S100A9 induces AML cell differentiation, whereas S100A8 prevents differentiation induced by S100A9 activity and maintains AML immature phenotype. Treatment with recombinant S100A9 proteins increased AML cell maturation, induced growth arrest, and

Acute myelogenous leukemia (AML) is a cancer of the blood usually in which too many early forms of white blood cells are produced in the bone marrow.. Normally, bone marrow cells mature into several different types of blood cells. AML usually affects the young blood cells (called blasts) that normally develop into a type of white blood cell (called granulocytes). The main function of granulocytes is to destroy bacteria. The blasts, which do not mature and become too numerous, remain in the bone marrow and blood. Acute leukemia is a fast growing cancer that needs to be treated as soon as possible after it is diagnosed. Chromosome abnormalities (extra chromosomes and structural changes in the chromosome material) are present in the majority of AML patients.. According to the American Cancer Society, about 47,000 leukemia cases are expected in 2012. About 14,000 of these will be AML.. ...
Leukemias are malignancies of the blood and bone marrow and are classified as either acute or chronic malignancies of the myeloid--red blood cell, granulocyte, platelet lineage--or lymphoid--T or B lymphocyte. In this article we will focus on acute myeloblastic leukemias (AML) and recent advances in their classification and therapy.. In the United States, approximately 10,100 cases of AML are diagnosed each year and the yearly mortality rate from this disease is approximately 6,900 individuals. The incidence of AML is low in children (,1/100,000) and increases with age, such that by the time a person reaches the age of 80 the incidence is approximately 15/100,000 (Figure 1).1 Over 60% of patients are 55 years of age or older, making this a significant problem in the aging population.. ...

BCL2 protein inhibitor venetoclax (ABT-199) has been authorized by Food and Drug Administration for relapsed/refractory chronic lymphoid leukemia with 17p deletion. Although venetoclax/ABT-199 also caused cell death in acute myeloid leukemia (AML), whether it could be applied to clinical treatment needs further studies. Here, we revealed clinical implication of BCL2 overexpression in de novo adult AML, and may provide theoretical basis for targeted therapy using venetoclax. BCL2 expression was analyzed in adult AML patients from public datasets The Cancer Genome Atlas (TCGA) and confirmed by another independent cohort from our own data. BCL2 expression showed up-regulated in AML patients among TCGA data and confirmed by our own data. BCL2 overexpression was correlated with FAB-M0/M1, whereas BCL2 under-expression was related to FAB-M5. However, BCL2 expression has no effect on overall survival (OS) and leukemia-free survival (LFS) of AML patients (determined in BCL2low and BCL2high groups).
Cross-talk between hematopoietic stem cells (HSCs) and bone marrow stromal cells (BMSCs) is essential for HSCs regulation and leukemogenesis. Studying bone marrow of myelodysplasia patients, a pre-leukemic condition, we found mRNA overexpression of vascular endothelial growth factor A (VEGFA) in CD34+ HSCs and semaphorin 3A (SEMA3A) in BMSCs. To better understand the role of VEGFA and SEMA3A in leukemogenesis, werecruited 30myelodysplastic syndrome(MDS) patients, 29 acutemyeloid leukemia (6 secondary toMDS) patients and 12 controls. We found higher VEGFA expression in de novo AML patients (without priorMDS) group (p = 0.0073) and higher SEMA3A expression in all BMSCs patients samples compared to control group. We then overexpressed VEGFA in an acute myelogenous leukemia cell line, KG1 cells, and in normal CD34(+) cells. This overexpression increased KG1 (p = 0.045) and CD34+ cell (p = 0.042) viability and KG1 (p = 0.042) and CD34(+) cell (p= 0.047) proliferation. Moreover, KG1 and CD34+ cells ...
CPX-351 treatment leads to higher chances of remission compared to standard options in AML. Moffitt Cancer Center researchers say clinical trials for a new experimental drug to treat acute myeloid leukemia (AML) are very promising. Patients treated with CPX-351, a combination of the chemotherapeutic drugs cytarabine and daunorubicin, are showing better responses than patients treated with the standard drug formulation.. "Acute myeloid leukemia is an aggressive blood cancer with very low rates of treatment success, especially in older patients," explained Jeffrey Lancet, M.D., senior member of the Department of Malignant Hematology and chief of the Leukemia Section at Moffitt.. AML is diagnosed in approximately 19,000 people in the United States each year and results in over 10,000 deaths annually. Many patients with AML are older and have additional medical conditions, which makes treatment difficult. Only 50 percent of patients respond to existing therapies and the average survival time is less ...
