*  Chronic myelomonocytic leukemia patients with RAS pathway mutations show high in vitro myeloid colony formation in the absence...
We read with great interest the article by Akutagawa et al. in this journal in which the authors describe that PI3K inhibitors unexpectedly profoundly inhibited myeloproliferation in an myelodysplastic/myeloproliferative neoplasm mouse model driven by hyperactive RAS, suggesting a new therapeutic strategy in juvenile myelomonocytic leukemia (JMML) and chronic myelomonocytic leukemia (CMML). The basis for all RAS pathway-oriented treatment concepts is the identification of RAS pathway hyperactivation in patients. Due to the fact that in CMML more than one molecular aberration can be detected in the majority of patients, functional tests may be important to better estimate the contribution of a particular molecular aberration in the pathogenesis of the malignancy. In JMML, in which molecular aberrations are mainly restricted to the RASopathy genes, including NRAS, KRAS, NF1, CBL and PTPN11, the spontaneous formation of colony-forming unit-granulocytemacrophage (CFU-GM) due to ...

*  Juvenile myelomonocytic leukemia - Wikipedia
Juvenile myelomonocytic leukemia (JMML) is a serious chronic leukemia (cancer of the blood) that affects children mostly aged 4 and younger. The name JMML now encompasses all diagnoses formerly referred to as juvenile chronic myeloid leukemia (JCML), chronic myelomonocytic leukemia of infancy, and infantile monosomy 7 syndrome. The average age of patients at diagnosis is 2 years old. The World Health Organization has included JMML in the category of myelodysplastic and myeloproliferative disorders. The following symptoms are typical ones which lead to testing for JMML, though children with JMML may exhibit any combination of them: pallor, fever, infection, bleeding, cough, poor weight gain, a maculopapular rash (discolored but not raised, or small and raised but not containing pus), lymphadenopathy (enlarged lymph nodes), moderate hepatomegaly (enlarged liver), marked splenomegaly (enlarged spleen), leukocytosis (high white blood cell count ...

Pgreater thanThis prospective Phase II study is the first to assess the feasibility and efficacy of maintenance 5-azacytidine for older patients with high-risk myelodysplastic syndrome (MDS), chronic myelomonocytic leukaemia and MDS-acute myeloid leukaemia syndromes in complete remission (CR) after induction chemotherapy. Sixty patients were enrolled and treated by standard induction chemotherapy. Patients that reached CR started maintenance therapy with subcutaneous azacytidine, 5/28 d until relapse. Promoter-methylation status of CDKN2B (P15 ink4b), CDH1 and HIC1 was examined pre-induction, in CR and 6, 12 and 24 months post CR. Twenty-four (40%) patients achieved CR after induction chemotherapy and 23 started maintenance treatment with azacytidine. Median CR duration was 13 center dot 5 months, greater than 24 months in 17% of the patients, and 18-30 center dot 5 months in the four patients with trisomy 8. CR duration was not associated with CDKN2B ...

2.5 x 109/L, >0% immature myeloid cells, >10% bone marrow blasts causes a reduced overall survival. This data allows cases of CMML to be stratified into low, intermediate-1, intermediate-2 and high risk groups. These groups have median survival times of 24, 15, 8 and 5 months respectively. The Düsseldorf score stratifies cases using four categories, giving one point for each; bone marrow blasts ≥5%, LDH >200U/L, haemoglobin ≤9g/dL and a platelet count ≤100,000/uL. A score of 0 indicates a low risk group' 1-2 indicates an intermediate risk group and 3-4 indicates a high risk group. The cumulative 2 year survival of scores 0, 1-2 and 3-4 is 91%, 52% and 9%; and risk of AML transformation is 0%, 19% and 54% respectively. The treatment of CMML remains challenging due to the lack of clinical trials investigating the disease as its own clinical entity. It is often grouped with MDS in clinical trials, and for this reason the treatment of CMML is very similar to ...

t(12;22)(p13;q12) is a rare but recurrent chromosomal abnormality involving the ETS transcription factor ETV6 and meningioma 1 (MN1) genes. In this study, we analyzed the clinical, cytogenetic, and molecular features of five new patients with the t(12;22)/MN1-EVT6 who presented with acute myeloid leukemia or chronic myelomonocytic leukemia. We subsequently reviewed the literature and identified seven additional cases reported with t(12;22)/MN1-EVT6. Our data suggest that neoplasms carrying the t(12;22)/MN1-ETV6, although rare, can commonly present as myeloid neoplasms at the initial diagnosis, including acute myeloid leukemia (n = 8), myelodysplastic syndrome (n = 2), and myelodysplastic/myeloproliferative neoplasms (n = 2 ...

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 Hodgkin's 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 ...

Lena and Chris again watched helplessly as James was loaded into yet another ambulance and sent to Advocate Christ Medical Center in Oak Lawn, Illinois.. Over the next two weeks, Chris and Lena were at the hospital every day. At one of the visits, the doctors said that they were concerned with James's lack of progress with his right lung. Risky tests were performed and after, Lena and Chris met with four specialists. James now had a diagnosis: Lymphangiectasia of right lung, absence of right pulmonary artery, absence of inferior venacava , and finally, hypospadius.. Doctors discussed what to look for and how to care for a child with one lung. After three days of preparation, Lena and Chris went to the hospital with the hopes that they would finally be able to bring little James home. And that is just what they did!. Home for about two weeks, everything was wonderful. James had many visitors and then got sick. His viral pneumonia resulted in four more days in the hospital but then, James came ...
