  • [Title] Dasatinib in the treatment of chronic myeloid leukemia in accelerated phase after imatinib failure: the START a trial.
  • PURPOSE Patients with chronic myelogenous leukemia in accelerated phase (CML-AP) that is resistant or intolerant to imatinib have limited therapeutic options.
  • Dasatinib, a potent inhibitor of BCR-ABL and SRC-family kinases, has efficacy in patients with CML-AP who have experienced treatment failure with imatinib.
  • We now report follow-up data from the full patient cohort of 174 patients enrolled onto a phase II trial to provide a more complete assessment of the efficacy and safety of dasatinib in this population.
  • PATIENTS AND METHODS Patients with imatinib-resistant (n = 161) or -intolerant (n = 13) CML-AP received dasatinib 70 mg orally twice daily.
  • Responses were achieved irrespective of imatinib status (resistant or intolerant), prior stem-cell transplantation, or the presence of prior BCR-ABL mutation.
  • CONCLUSION Dasatinib is effective in patients with CML-AP after imatinib treatment failure.

  • [Title] Phase 3 study of dasatinib 140 mg once daily versus 70 mg twice daily in patients with chronic myeloid leukemia in accelerated phase resistant or intolerant to imatinib: 15-month median follow-up.
  • Dasatinib is the most potent BCR-ABL inhibitor, with 325-fold higher potency than imatinib against unmutated BCR-ABL in vitro.
  • Studies have demonstrated the benefits of dasatinib 70 mg twice daily in patients with accelerated-phase chronic myeloid leukemia intolerant or resistant to imatinib.
  • A phase 3 study compared the efficacy and safety of dasatinib 140 mg once daily with the current twice-daily regimen.
  • Here, results from the subgroup with accelerated-phase chronic myeloid leukemia (n = 317) with a median follow-up of 15 months (treatment duration, 0.03-31.15 months) are reported.

  • [Title] Dasatinib induces significant hematologic and cytogenetic responses in patients with imatinib-resistant or -intolerant chronic myeloid leukemia in accelerated phase.
  • Treatment options are limited for patients with imatinib-resistant or -intolerant accelerated phase chronic myeloid leukemia (CML-AP).
  • Dasatinib is a novel, potent, oral, multitargeted kinase inhibitor of BCR-ABL and SRC-family kinases that showed marked efficacy in a phase 1 trial of patients with imatinib-resistant CML.
  • Results are presented for 107 patients with CML-AP with imatinib-resistance or -intolerance from a phase 2, open-label study further evaluating dasatinib efficacy and safety.
  • Response rates for the 60% of patients with baseline BCR-ABL mutations did not differ from the total population.
  • In summary, dasatinib induced significant hematologic and cytogenetic responses in patients with imatinib resistance or intolerance, was well tolerated, and may represent a potent new therapeutic option for CML-AP.

  • [Title] Phase II study of low-dose decitabine in combination with imatinib mesylate in patients with accelerated or myeloid blastic phase of chronic myelogenous leukemia.
  • BACKGROUND: Resistance to imatinib is a frequent clinical problem in advanced phase chronic myelogenous leukemia (CML).
  • A Phase II study was performed on low-dose decitabine, a DNA methyltransferase inhibitor, in combination with imatinib in patients with CML in accelerated phase (AP) and myeloid blastic phase (BP).
  • The hematologic response rate was higher in patients without BCR-ABL kinase mutations (10 of 19, 53%) than in those with mutations (1 of 7, 14%).
  • CONCLUSIONS: Combination therapy with decitabine and imatinib is well tolerated and active in advanced phase CML without BCR-ABL kinase mutations.

  • [Title] Pilot study of lonafarnib, a farnesyl transferase inhibitor, in patients with chronic myeloid leukemia in the chronic or accelerated phase that is resistant or refractory to imatinib therapy.
  • BACKGROUND: Lonafarnib (SCH66336) is a nonpeptidomimetic farnesyl transferase inhibitor that has demonstrated significant preclinical activity against chronic myelogenous leukemia (CML) cells and in CML animal models.
  • METHODS: In the current study, the efficacy of lonafarnib was investigated in patients with CML in the chronic or accelerated phase that was resistant or intolerant to imatinib.
  • Thirteen patients with CML in the chronic (n = 6 patients) or accelerated (n = 7 patients) phase were treated with lonafarnib at a dose of 200 mg orally twice daily.
  • The median age of the patients was 62 years (range, 38-80 yrs) and the median time from the diagnosis of CML to therapy with lonafarnib was 5 years (range, 0.3-13 yrs).
  • One patient in the accelerated phase of CML returned to the chronic phase, a response that lasted for 3 months.
  • Another patient with chronic phase disease had lowering of the leukocyte count without the need for hydroxyurea and normalization of the differential count that lasted for 5 months.
  • CONCLUSIONS: Single-agent lonafarnib appears to have clinical activity in a small proportion of patients with CML refractory to imatinib.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • [Title] Phase 1 study of INNO-406, a dual Abl/Lyn kinase inhibitor, in Philadelphia chromosome-positive leukemias after imatinib resistance or intolerance.
  • BACKGROUND: : INNO-406, a dual v-abl Abelson murine leukemia viral oncogene homolog (Abl)/v-yes-1 Yamaguchi sarcoma viral-related oncogene homolog (Lyn) tyrosine kinase inhibitor (TKI), has demonstrated specific Lyn kinase inhibitory activity with no or limited activity against other sarcoma (Src) family member kinases.
  • Several breakpoint cluster region (Bcr)-Abl kinase domain mutations are sensitive to INNO-406 in vitro, including mutations that involve a phenylalanine-to-leucine or phenylalanine-to-valine substitution at codon 317 (F317L and F317V, respectively).
  • In the current study, the authors evaluated the use of INNO-406 in patients with Philadelphia (Ph) chromosome-positive chronic myelogenous leukemia (CML) or acute lymphocytic leukemia (ALL) after imatinib resistance or intolerance.
  • Of 31 patients with CML in chronic phase who received INNO-406, the major cytogenetic response rate was 19%.
  • No responses were observed in patients who had CML in accelerated phase, CML in blastic phase, or Ph-positive ALL.
  • CONCLUSIONS: : INNO-406 had anti-CML efficacy in a heavily pretreated study population.
  • On the basis of the classic determinations of both DLT and MTD, the recommended phase 2 dose of oral INNO-406 was 240 mg twice daily.

  • [Title] [The prognostic implications of secondary chromosomal aberrations in Philadelphia chromosome-positive chronic myeloid leukemia patients after imatinib mesylate treatment].
  • OBJECTIVE: To investigate the change of Philadelphia chromosome-positive clone with secondary chromosomal aberrations after imatinib mesylate (IM) treatment in patients with chronic myeloid leukemia (CML) and its relation with prognosis.
  • METHODS: 37 cases of CML in accelerated phase and blastic phase were collected and chromosome specimens of bone marrow cells were prepared by with 24-hour culture.
  • The percentage of Philadelphia chromosome-positive clone with secondary chromosomal aberrations showed the following 4 types of change; amplification, no change, decrease and complete remission after treatment with IM.
  • 2 of the 24 cases in CML in accelerated phase gained complete cytogenetic response (CCyR) and 2 of the 13 in blastic phase did so.
  • CONCLUSION: The percentage of Philadelphia chromosome-positive clone with secondary chromosomal aberrations may drop in some CML patients after IM treatment and the patients may gain CCyR with accompanied prolonged survival.

  • [Title] Current role of stem cell transplantation in chronic myeloid leukaemia.
  • Haematopoietic stem cell transplantation (HSCT) has seen considerable ups and downs in its role for patients with chronic myeloid leukaemia (CML).
  • It has provided the first proof of the principle for cure and has confirmed the concept of successful immunotherapy of leukaemia.
  • CML became the most frequent indication for an allogeneic HSCT worldwide.
  • The frequency of HSCT declined rapidly when the specific BCR/ABL tyrosine kinase inhibitor (TKI) imatinib appeared.
  • Risk assessment of both, disease risk and transplant risk, has become standard.
  • Allogeneic HSCT remains the first-line approach for patients with CML in accelerated phase or blast crisis.
  • It is the best option for all patients with failed second-line TKIs, with mutations T315I or with progressive disease.

  • [Title] Advanced CML: therapeutic options for patients in accelerated and blast phases.
  • Tyrosine kinase inhibitor (TKI) therapy has impacted the natural course of chronic myelogenous leukemia (CML), because patients diagnosed as having chronic-phase disease can experience long-lasting responses.
  • However, for patients with advanced CML (accelerated and blast phases), the efficacy of all current therapies is reduced.
  • For patients with accelerated-phase CML, imatinib, dasatinib, and nilotinib have been shown to produce meaningful rates of hematologic and cytogenetic response.
  • Imatinib and dasatinib are also approved for blast-phase CML.
  • Moreover, because fewer mechanisms appear to exist for secondary resistance to dasatinib and nilotinib, reducing the potential for disease to escape TKI therapy, these agents may result in improved longer-term outcomes.
  • However, BCR-ABL-independent pathways may also become more important, indicating that other therapeutic targets may also have a future role in managing patients with advanced CML.

  • The development of imatinib is a milestone in the treatment of chronic myeloid leukemia (CML), and its therapeutic effect has been extensively investigated in CML patients carrying M-bcr and m-bcr BCR/ABL fusion transcripts.
  • However, our knowledge about its therapeutic effect on CML patients with rare BCR/ABL fusion transcripts e19a2(u-bcr) remains sparse.
  • Here, we report on two CML patients with e19a2 transcripts who rapidly progressed into the accelerated phase, further confirming the possibility that 19a2 might be associated with an unfavorable prognosis in CML.

  • [Title] Nilotinib is active in chronic and accelerated phase chronic myeloid leukemia following failure of imatinib and dasatinib therapy.
  • Nilotinib is a highly selective Bcr-Abl inhibitor approved for imatinib-resistant chronic myeloid leukemia (CML).
  • Nilotinib and dasatinib, a multi-targeted kinase inhibitor also approved for second-line therapy in CML, have different patterns of kinase selectivity, pharmacokinetics, and cell uptake and efflux properties, and thus patients may respond to one following failure of the other.
  • An international phase II study of nilotinib was conducted in CML patients (39 chronic phase (CP), 21 accelerated phase (AP)) after failure of both imatinib and dasatinib.
  • Median times from diagnosis of CP or AP to nilotinib therapy were 89 and 83 months, respectively.
  • Of 17 evaluable patients with CML-AP, 5 (29%) had a confirmed hematological response and 2 (12%) a MCyR.
  • Median overall survival for both populations has not been reached, and the estimated 18-month survival rate in CML-CP was 86% and that at 12 months for CML-AP was 80%.
  • Nilotinib is an effective therapy in CML-CP and -AP following failure of both imatinib and dasatinib therapy.

  • [Title] U.S. Food and Drug Administration Drug Approval Summary: conversion of imatinib mesylate (STI571; Gleevec) tablets from accelerated approval to full approval.
  • Imatinib mesylate (Gleevec, Novartis Pharmaceuticals East Manruer, NJ) received accelerated approval on May 10, 2001 for the treatment of patients with chronic myeloid leukemia (CML) in (a) chronic phase after failure of IFN-alpha therapy, (b) accelerated phase, and (c) blast crisis.
  • The accelerated approval was accompanied by a postmarketing commitment by Novartis Pharmaceuticals to continue patient follow-up to determine duration of treatment response and survival.
  • The present review, based on a safety and efficacy report submitted on December 20, 2002, summarizes data applicable to the conversion of these three CML indications to full approval status.
  • RESULTS: Chronic phase CML: Five hundred thirty-two chronic phase CML patients who had not benefited from prior IFN therapy were treated at a starting imatinib mesylate dose of 400 mg p.o. qd; dose escalation to 800 mg p.o. qd was allowed.
  • Patients had received a median of 14 months of IFN therapy at doses > or =25 million IU/wk and were all in late chronic phase, with a median time from diagnosis of 32 months.
  • After 2 years of treatment, an estimated 85.4% of patients were free of progression to accelerated phase or blast crisis, and the estimated overall survival was 90.8% (95% confidence interval, 88.3-93.2).
  • Accelerated phase CML: Patients enrolled totaled 293: 235 with CML accelerated phase, 48 with relapsed/refractory acute lymphocytic leukemia, 2 with relapsed/refractory acute myelocytic leukemia, and 8 with relapsed/refractory CML in lymphoid blast crisis.
  • The median survival in the advanced leukemia population (acute lymphocytic leukemia, acute myelocytic leukemia, and lymphoid blast crisis) was only 5 months, and only two patients are still on treatment.
  • Blast crisis CML: A total of 260 patients were recruited.
  • CONCLUSIONS: The results confirm those of the interim analysis and suggest that imatinib mesylate represents an effective therapeutic agent for the treatment of patients with CML in chronic phase after failure of IFN-alpha therapy, in blast crisis, and in accelerated phase.

  • Persistence of BCR-ABL-positive (bcr-abl(+)) cells or secondary resistance during imatinib therapy frequently occurs.
  • In this study, we investigated the activity of a novel dual ligand specific for peroxisome proliferator-activated receptor alpha and gamma (PPARalpha/gamma) against CML blast crisis cell lines.
  • Exposure of these cell lines (K562, KU812 and KCL22) to TZD18 resulted in a growth inhibition in a dose- and time-dependent manner.
  • Overall, our findings strongly suggest that either TZD18, either alone or in combination with imatinib may be beneficial for the treatment of CML in myeloid blast crisis.

  • [Title] Chronic myelogenous leukaemia (CML): an update.
  • The management of chronic myelogenous leukaemia (CML) has undergone a major change over the past 5 years.
  • All newly diagnosed patients of CML are candidates for imatinib mesylate therapy.
  • Almost 95% of patients with early chronic phase CML achieve complete haematological remission (CHR) and nearly 80% achieve complete cytogenetic response (CGR; 0% Philadelphia [Ph] chromosome-positive metaphases).
  • For patients with advanced CML (accelerated phase and blast crisis), achievement of CHR and major (complete and partial) CGR occurs in 25%-37% and 10%-30% of patients, respectively.
  • Most investigators agree that patients who fail to achieve CHR by 12 weeks, have partial cytogenetic response (< 35% Ph-positive metaphases) at 12 months, have CGR by 18 months, who relapse after initial response to imatinib, and those with a high Sokal score or in an advanced phase of CML should be considered for allogeneic stem cell transplantation (SCT).
  • Despite Ph negativity with imatinib treatment, most patients continue to remain BCR-ABL positive on molecular studies, and require treatment indefinitely.

  • [Title] A MAPK/HNRPK pathway controls BCR/ABL oncogenic potential by regulating MYC mRNA translation.
  • Altered mRNA translation is one of the effects exerted by the BCR/ABL oncoprotein in the blast crisis phase of chronic myelogenous leukemia (CML).
  • Here, we report that in BCR/ABL+ cell lines and in patient-derived CML blast crisis mononuclear and CD34+ cells, p210(BCR/ABL) increases expression and activity of the transcriptional-inducer and translational-regulator heterogeneous nuclear ribonucleoprotein K (hnRNP K or HNRPK) in a dose- and kinase-dependent manner through the activation of the MAPK(ERK1/2) pathway.
  • Furthermore, HNRPK down-regulation and interference with HNRPK translation-but not transcription-regulatory activity impairs cytokine-independent proliferation, clonogenic potential, and in vivo leukemogenic activity of BCR/ABL-expressing myeloid 32Dcl3 and/or primary CD34+ CML-BC patient cells.
  • Mechanistically, we demonstrate that decreased internal ribosome entry site (IRES)-dependent Myc mRNA translation accounts for the phenotypic changes induced by inhibition of the BCR/ABL-ERK-dependent HNRPK translation-regulatory function.
  • Accordingly, MYC protein but not mRNA levels are increased in the CD34+ fraction of patients with CML in accelerated and blastic phase but not in chronic phase CML patients and in the CD34+ fraction of marrow cells from healthy donors.
  • Thus, BCR/ABL-dependent enhancement of HNRPK translation-regulation is important for BCR/ABL leukemogenesis and, perhaps, it might contribute to blast crisis transformation.

  • [Title] Phase I/II study of subcutaneous homoharringtonine in patients with chronic myeloid leukemia who have failed prior therapy.
  • Intravenous HHT has demonstrated activity in patients with chronic myeloid leukemia (CML) after failure with interferon.
  • METHODS: A Phase I study was completed of subcutaneous (s.c.
  • ) HHT in patients with CML in accelerated or blast phases and demonstrated efficacy and good tolerance at the same doses used by intravenous (i.v.) administration.
  • The cohort was then expanded to treated at the MTD to include patients in late chronic phase CML after imatinib failure.
  • The 2 patients with BCR-ABL kinase domain mutations at the start of therapy with HHT had a CG response and in both instances the mutations became undetectable.
  • CONCLUSIONS: Subcutaneous HHT is well tolerated and may have clinical activity in patients with CML after imatinib failure.

  • [Title] [The efficacy of imatinib mesylate for 124 patients with chronic myeloid leukemia in accelerated and blastic phase].
  • OBJECTIVES: To evaluate the efficacy and safety of imatinib mesylate (imatinib) for patients with Philadelphia chromosome-positive (Ph+ ) chronic myeloid leukemia (CML) in accelerated and blastic phase.
  • METHODS: Seventy-five Ph+ CML patients in accelerated phase and 49 in blastic phase were treated with 400 mg or 600 mg of imatinib once daily.
  • RESULTS: For patients in accelerated phase, the cumulative hematological response (HR) rate was 93.3%, including complete HR (CHR) rate 85.3%, and returning to chronic phase (RCP) rate 8% in a median follow-up of 23.0 (1.0 -64.0 ) months.
  • For patients in blastic phase, the cumulative HR rate was 63.3%, including CHR rate 44.9%, and RCP rate 18.4% in a median follow-up of 4.5 (0.3 -63.0) months.
  • CONCLUSIONS: The efficiency of imatinib was decreasing, and severer hematological toxicities increasing with the disease progressing in patients with Ph+ CML.
  • Imatinib improves progression-free survival significantly in most patients in accelerated phase, particularly in those with continuous CCyR or MMoR.
  • The response duration in majority of blastic phase patients is short, and the relapse rate is high.

  • [Title] Chronic myeloid leukemia in 2007.
  • PURPOSE: Chronic myeloid leukemia (CML), a hematopoietic stem cell cancer representing 15-20% of adult leukemias, is discussed.
  • SUMMARY: CML is a myeloproliferative disorder that affects all lineages of hematopoiesis.
  • Final confirmation of CML comes with detection of the Philadelphia Chromosome (Ph) or BCR-ABL transcripts.
  • The disease presents in one of three phases: chronic phase, accelerated phase, or blast crisis.
  • Progression from chronic phase to accelerated phase usually involves the accumulation of additional cytogenetic aberrations and the arising of resistance to therapy.
  • Although at one point mortality associated with CML was high, new kinase inhibitor therapies have markedly extended the life-span of these patients.
  • These inhibitors were derived through the initial observation of the association of the Ph with CML and the eventual identification of the BCR-ABL oncogene which arises from this translocation.
  • Analysis of the mechanism by which BCR-ABL transforms cells identified this protein as a tyrosine kinase and led to the targeting of this activity.
  • The majority of patients present in chronic phase, which is where these kinase inhibitors have their greatest efficacy.
  • Monitoring of disease progression is of critical importance as the prognosis drops significantly for patients with advanced disease.
  • Blood counts, cytogenetics, and polymerase chain reaction (PCR) are currently used to assess disease.
  • CONCLUSION: Our understanding of BCR-ABL has allowed the development of therapies, which may keep patients with CML in chronic phase indefinitely.
  • This has created a situation in which patient monitoring is essential for detecting changes in the status of CML.
  • The tests described here provide a comprehensive assessment of disease status allowing for effective patient management.

  • [Title] Survival benefit with imatinib mesylate therapy in patients with accelerated-phase chronic myelogenous leukemia--comparison with historic experience.
  • BACKGROUND: The effect of imatinib mesylate on survival in the accelerated phase of chronic myelogenous leukemia (CML) is unknown.
  • The objectives of this study were to update the long-term experience with imatinib in patients who had accelerated-phase CML and to compare outcomes with historic experience.
  • METHODS: The outcomes of 176 patients who received treatment with imatinib were reviewed and compared with the outcomes of 213 historic control patients with accelerated-phase CML who received treatment with interferon-alpha or with other modalities.
  • This may have implications in relation to subsequent therapy, because, according to the outcomes of patients who underwent allogeneic transplantation in accelerated phase at the authors' institution and from literature reports, the estimates of 5-year survival were 25-30%.
  • CONCLUSIONS: The current results suggest that imatinib improved survival compared with other therapies in patients with accelerated-phase CML.

  • [Title] [A clinical study of treating 120 cases of adult chronic myelocytic leukemia with imatinib mesylate].
  • OBJECTIVE: To analyze and evaluate the clinical efficacy and safety of imatinib mesylate (IM) as a tyrosine kinase inhibitor on Ph-positive or BCR/ABL positive chronic myelogenous leukemia (CML).
  • METHODS: 120 patients diagnosed as CML with positive Ph chromosome were treated with IM 400 mg/d for CML in chronic phase (CP) (n = 90) or 600 mg/d for CML in accelerated or blastic phase (AP or BP) (n = 30) once daily.
  • Hematological, cytogenetic and molecular effects of IM on the disease process of these patients were evaluated with blood and marrow cells morphology examination, G-band conventional cytogenetics analysis for Ph chromosome and PCR assay for BCR/ABL gene.
  • (1) In CML-CP patients, after a follow-up of 9 ( range 3-42) months, cumulative complete hematological response (CHR), complete cytogenetic response (CCyR) and complete molecular response (CMR) rates were 73.3%, 66.7% and 54.4%, which was not influenced by prior treatment of interferon.
  • CMR was better when time from diagnosis to treatment with IM was < or = 6 months (P < 0.05).
  • It is significant that the time to first CHR and time to first CCyR were related with the time to first CCyR and the time to first negative BCR/ ABL, respectively (both P < 0.05), while there was no relation between the time to first CHR and the time to first negative BCR/ABL (P > 0.05). (2) CHR, CCyR and CMR rates of the patients with progressive course (AP and BP) were 43.3%, 25.9% and 25.0%, respectively.
  • CONCLUSION: IM can lead to considerable hematological, cytogenetic and molecular response rates in CML, especially CML-CP patients, with minor tolerable side effects.

  • [Title] Nilotinib for imatinib-resistant or -intolerant chronic myeloid leukemia in chronic phase, accelerated phase, or blast crisis: a single- and multiple-dose, open-label pharmacokinetic study in Chinese patients.
  • BACKGROUND: Nilotinib, an oral second-generation Bcr-Abi tyrosine kinase inhibitor, is approved in the United States and European Union for the treatment of Philadelphia chromosome-positive (Ph+), chronic-phase (CP) or accelerated-phase (AP) chronic myeloid leukemia (CML) resistant to or intolerant of prior therapy, including imatinib.
  • Information on the pharmacokinetics of nilotinib in Chinese patients with CML is lacking, and regulatory requirements for registration of this drug are needed in China.
  • OBJECTIVES: This study assessed the pharmacokinet-ics of single and multiple oral doses of nilotinib in Chinese patients with CML and compared the pharmacokinetic profiles of nilotinib between the Chinese patients and a subgroup of white patients with CML.
  • METHODS: Chinese patients aged > or =18 years with Ph+ CML-CP, CML-AP, or CML-BC (blast crisis) resistant to or intolerant of imatinib were eligible.
  • RESULTS: Twenty-three patients were enrolled (18 men, 5 women; mean age, 40.0 years; mean weight, 68.3 kg; CML-CP, 22 patients; CML-AP, 1).
  • Steady-state C(max), C(min), AUC(0-tau), and CL/F were not significantly different from those previously reported in a subgroup of white patients with CML who received the same 400-mg BID dose.
  • CONCLUSIONS: In this pharmacokinetic study in Chinese patients with CML resistant to or intolerant of imatinib, nilotinib 400 mg BID was rapidly absorbed after a single dose and multiple doses.
  • The steady-state pharmacokinetic properties in this population were consistent with those reported previously in white patients with CML.

  • [Title] Tailoring tyrosine kinase inhibitor therapy in chronic myeloid leukemia.
  • BACKGROUND: Research into chronic myeloid leukemia (CML) is increasingly focused on the problem of imatinib failure.
  • Dasatinib and nilotinib are both active in chronic- and accelerated-phase CML, including patients with imatinib-resistant or intolerant disease.
  • METHODS: This paper reviews advances in tailoring tyrosine kinase inhibition therapy according to patient risk profiles as well as hematologic, cytogenetic, and molecular responses, BCR-ABL mutation status, and emerging predictive factors.
  • CONCLUSIONS: Treatment for CML should be individualized and, when resistance to imatinib can be predicted, therapy should be modified so that patients do not progress beyond chronic phase and respond as promptly and deeply as required to maximally reduce risk.

  • [Title] Five-year follow-up of patients receiving imatinib for chronic myeloid leukemia.
  • BACKGROUND: The cause of chronic myeloid leukemia (CML) is a constitutively active BCR-ABL tyrosine kinase.
  • Imatinib inhibits this kinase, and in a short-term study was superior to interferon alfa plus cytarabine for newly diagnosed CML in the chronic phase.
  • For 5 years, we followed patients with CML who received imatinib as initial therapy.
  • METHODS: We randomly assigned 553 patients to receive imatinib and 553 to receive interferon alfa plus cytarabine and then evaluated them for overall and event-free survival; progression to accelerated-phase CML or blast crisis; hematologic, cytogenetic, and molecular responses; and adverse events.
  • An estimated 7% of patients progressed to accelerated-phase CML or blast crisis, and the estimated overall survival of patients who received imatinib as initial therapy was 89% at 60 months.
  • Patients who had a complete cytogenetic response or in whom levels of BCR-ABL transcripts had fallen by at least 3 log had a significantly lower risk of disease progression than did patients without a complete cytogenetic response (P<0.001).
  • CONCLUSIONS: After 5 years of follow-up, continuous treatment of chronic-phase CML with imatinib as initial therapy was found to induce durable responses in a high proportion of patients. (ClinicalTrials.gov number, NCT00006343 [ClinicalTrials.gov]. )

  • BACKGROUND: Chronic myeloid leukemia (CML) is a myeloproliferative disorder with a unique genetic rearrangement, the Philadelphia chromosome.
  • The aim of this study was to evaluate the products of protein oxidation and lipid peroxidation in plasma as biomarkers of oxidative stress in CML patients.
  • PATIENTS AND METHODS: The study included 40 CML patients and 20 age- and sex-matched healthy volunteers.
  • Of 40 CML patients, 28 were in chronic phase (CML-CP) and 12 in accelerated phase (CML-AP).
  • RESULTS: There were significant differences (P < .05) in plasma levels of PC, TBARS and LOOH in CML, CML-CP and CML-AP patients as compared to controls.
  • CONCLUSION: PC, TBARS and LOOH might reflect oxidative stress in CML patients and might be used as biomarkers in such patients.

  • [Title] Oxidative stress and antioxidant status in patients with chronic myeloid leukemia.
  • Chronic myeloid leukemia is a myeloproliferative disorder with a unique rearrangement, the Philadelphia chromosome.
  • The aim of this study was to evaluate the role of oxidative stress in pathophysiology of Chronic myeloid leukemia by measuring the circulating plasma lipid peroxide levels in terms of malonyldialdehyde, total lipid hydroperoxide and oxidized proteins as protein carbonyl whereas antioxidant status were estimated in terms of reduced glutathione and total thiol in plasma of Chronic myeloid leukemia patients.
  • The present study included 47 Chronic myeloid leukemia patients and 20 age-and sex-matched healthy subjects.
  • Out of 47 Chronic myeloid leukemia patients, 31 were in chronic phase (CML-CP) and 16 in accelerated phase (CML-AP).
  • The median age of Chronic myeloid leukemia patients was 33 years and that of controls was 32 years.
  • There was a significant increase (p<0.05) in plasma malonyldialdehyde, total lipid hydroperoxide and protein carbonyl levels in Chronic myeloid leukemia patients as compared to healthy subjects.
  • Our results also showed that plasma malonyldialdehyde and protein carbonyl levels were markedly elevated (p<0.05) in both chronic phase (CML-CP) and accelerated phase (CML-AP) as compared to healthy volunteers.
  • Antioxidant status was found to be significantly decreased (p<0.05) in Chronic myeloid leukemia patients and its phases as compared to healthy participants.
  • It could be concluded that oxidative stress may be associated with the pathophysiology of Chronic myeloid leukemia.

  • [Title] Novel treatment strategies for chronic myeloid leukemia.
  • PURPOSE: Despite dramatic advances in the treatment of chronic myeloid leukemia (CML), resistance to therapeutic agents has emerged as a significant treatment dilemma.
  • Mutations of the BCR-ABL kinase domain, a common mechanism of resistance to imatinib in CML, are discussed.
  • SUMMARY: Several new targeted kinase inhibitors have reached clinical trials and have proved to be efficacious in halting the oncogenic activity of most BCR-ABL mutants.
  • Dasatinib is 300 times more potent than imatinib at BCR-ABL inhibition, has few side effects, and inhibits the SRC family kinases.
  • Nilotinib inhibits BCR-ABL at 20-50 times more potency than imatinib.
  • Both agents were highly effective in treating chronic phase CML but were less effective at treating accelerated phase CML in early phase clinical trials.
  • CONCLUSION: The new kinase inhibitors, dasatinib and nilotinib, are emerging as plausible therapeutic options for the treatment of imatinib-refractory CML.

  • [Title] Paraplegia as the presenting manifestation of extramedullary megakaryoblastic transformation of previously undiagnosed chronic myelogenous leukemia.
  • Extramedullary tumors, also known as granulocytic sarcomas (GS), occur most frequently in acute myelogenous leukemia (AML).
  • They may signal the onset of the accelerated phase of chronic myelogenous leukemia (CML) or the blastic transformation of a myeloproliferative disorder.
  • Occasionally, a GS may be the presenting sign of undiagnosed AML, and rarely the presenting sign of undiagnosed CML or aleukemic leukemia.
  • Paraplegia due to a spinal cord GS is an extremely rare presentation of undiagnosed leukemia.
  • This is the first case report of paraplegia as the presenting manifestation of extramedullary megakaryoblastic transformation of previously undiagnosed CML.
  • The CBC revealed a leukocyte count of 238,300/microl and a differential consistent with CML.
  • Further immunohistochemical studies of the tumor were consistent with extramedullary acute megakaryoblastic blast transformation of CML.
  • Although extramedullary blast crises herald the accelerated phases in approximately 10% of CML cases, megakaryoblastic blast transformation of CML accounts for less than 3% of these cases.
  • The combination of acute paraplegia and megakaryoblastic transformation in a previously undiagnosed patient with CML is extremely rare and may pose a diagnostic dilemma.

  • [Title] Use of dasatinib and nilotinib in imatinib-resistant chronic myeloid leukemia: translating preclinical findings to clinical practice.
  • The BCR-ABL inhibitor imatinib revolutionized the treatment of chronic myeloid leukemia (CML).
  • The mechanisms underlying resistance are multifactorial and may include mutations in the kinase domain of BCR-ABL, increased production of BCR-ABL, or activation of BCR-ABL-independent pathways.
  • Two second-line BCR-ABL inhibitors are now approved for treatment of patients with resistance or intolerance to imatinib.
  • Dasatinib is a dual BCR-ABL/Src-family kinase (SFK) inhibitor approved for patients with imatinib-resistant and -intolerant CML in any phase and Ph+ ALL.
  • Nilotinib, an analogue of imatinib, is approved for the treatment of imatinib-resistant or -intolerant patients with chronic or accelerated phase CML.
  • Both agents have shown significant clinical activity in patients with imatinib-resistant or -intolerant CML, and their approval represents a major advancement in the treatment options available.
  • The presence of certain disease characteristics (e.g. specific BCR-ABL mutations) or patient comorbidities may facilitate more effective treatment.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • [Title] Dasatinib: in chronic myeloid leukemia and Philadelphia chromosome-positive acute lymphoblastic leukemia.
  • Dasatinib is a small-molecule inhibitor of multiple tyrosine kinases, including BCR-ABL, SRC, c-KIT, ephrin A receptor and platelet-derived growth factor-beta receptor kinases, at nanomolar concentrations.
  • In vitro, dasatinib is 325-fold more potent than imatinib against cells expressing wild-type BCR-ABL.
  • The efficacy and tolerability of oral dasatinib has been established in the START phase II trials in adults with chronic myeloid leukemia (CML) or Philadelphia chromosome-positive acute lymphoblastic leukemia (Ph-positive ALL) who were intolerant or resistant to imatinib, and optimal dasatinib dosage regimens were identified in phase III randomized trials.
  • In patients with chronic phase CML, the major cytogenetic response rate in the START-C trial (median follow-up 15.2 months) was 59% with dasatinib, and in the randomized START-R trial (median follow-up 15 months), was greater with dasatinib than with high-dose imatinib (52% vs 33%).
  • Major hematologic response rates with dasatinib were 63% in patients with accelerated phase CML (follow-up > or =9 months; START-A trial), 34% in patients with myeloid blast phase CML and 35% in those with lymphoid blast phase CML (follow-up > or =12 months; START-B and START-L trials), and 41% in patients with Ph-positive ALL (follow-up > or =12 months; START-L trial).
  • Based on phase III results, a once-daily dasatinib regimen is considered optimal in chronic phase CML (starting dosage 100 mg once daily), while a twice-daily regimen continues to be recommended in accelerated phase, myeloid blast phase or lymphoid blast phase CML and Ph-positive ALL (starting dosage 70 mg twice daily).

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • [Title] Optimizing treatment with Bcr-Abl tyrosine kinase inhibitors in Philadelphia chromosome-positive chronic myeloid leukemia: focus on dosing schedules.
  • Chronic myeloid leukemia (CML) is characterized by the presence of the Philadelphia chromosome (Ph), a genetic aberration that codes for bcrabl, which plays a key role in disease pathophysiology.
  • Dose-escalated imatinib (800 mg daily) has shown some limited activity in patients with imatinib-resistant CML, but the development of second-generation tyrosine kinase inhibitors has broadened the treatment options.
  • Dasatinib has demonstrated activity in all phases of CML and Ph+ acute lymphocytic leukemia and is approved for the treatment of adults in this setting.
  • Recent phase III data have demonstrated that, in patients with chronic-phase CML, dasatinib 100 mg once daily is equally effective, with improved tolerability, compared with the previously approved 70-mg twice-daily dose.
  • Nilotinib, which has been recently approved, has increased potency for Brc-Abl compared with imatinib and has demonstrated activity in patients with imatinib-resistant and -intolerant chronic- and accelerated-phase CML.

  • [Title] Imatinib mesylate in chronic myeloid leukemia: a prospective, single arm, non-randomized study.
  • Chronic myeloid leukemia (CML) is a hematopoietic stem cell disorder characterized by the balanced reciprocal translocation t (9:22).
  • The resulting fusion gene, the BCR-ABL, is responsible for oncogenesis.
  • Imatinib mesylate is a novel molecule, which inhibits the protein product of this fusion gene and hence has been used in the treatment of CML.
  • The present study evaluates 174 patients with CML treated with imatinib mesylate.
  • Of these 174 patients, 97 were in chronic phase, 47 in accelerated phase and 30 patients had blast crisis.
  • Patients in chronic phase received imatinib mesylate in the dose of 400-mg daily, while those in accelerated phase and blast crisis received 600 to 800 mg daily.
  • Of the 97 patients with chronic phase, 49 patients (50.5%) achieved a major (major + complete) cytogenetic response.
  • Of the 47 patients in accelerated phase, 10 patients (21.3%) achieved a major cytogenetic response and in 30 patients with blast crisis, 7 (23.3%) achieved a major cytogenetic response.
  • We conclude that imatinib mesylate is a safe and effective first-line therapy for chronic myeloid leukemia.

  • [Title] Sprycel for chronic myeloid leukemia and Philadelphia chromosome-positive acute lymphoblastic leukemia resistant to or intolerant of imatinib mesylate.
  • Food and Drug Administration approved dasatinib (Sprycel; Bristol-Myers Squibb), a new small-molecule inhibitor of multiple tyrosine kinases, for the treatment of adults with chronic phase, accelerated phase, or myeloid or lymphoid blast phase chronic myeloid leukemia (CML) or Philadelphia chromosome-positive acute lymphoblastic leukemia (Ph(+) ALL) with resistance or intolerance to prior therapy including imatinib.
  • The primary efficacy end point in chronic phase CML was major cytogenetic response.
  • The primary end point in accelerated phase, myeloid phase, and lymphoid blast phase CML, and Ph(+) ALL was major hematologic response.
  • In patients with chronic phase CML, the major cytogenetic response rate was 45% with a complete cytogenetic response rate of 33%.
  • Major hematologic response rates in patients with accelerated phase CML, myeloid CML, lymphoid blast CML, and Ph(+) ALL were 59%, 32%, 31%, and 42%, respectively.
  • Median response durations in chronic phase, accelerated phase, and myeloid phase CML had not been reached.
  • The median durations of major hematologic response were 3.7 months in lymphoid blast CML and 4.8 months in Ph(+) ALL.
  • CONCLUSIONS: This report describes the Food and Drug Administration review supporting the approval of dasatinib for CML and Ph(+) ALL based on the rates and durability of cytogenetic and hematologic responses.

  • [Title] [Expression of beta-Catenin Gene in CML and its relationship with bcr/abl].
  • This study was aimed to quantitatively detect the expression level of beta-catenin and bcr/abl in different phases of chronic myeloid leukemia (CML) and to analyze their potential relationship and significance in the progression of CML.
  • First, the total RNA isolated from BMMNC of patients with CML and donors was reversely transcribed into cDNA.
  • The real-time quantitative PCR method was used to analyze the expression level of beta-catenin and bcr/abl.
  • The expression level of beta-catenin and bcr/abl in different phases of CML was compared and the correlation was analyzed between the two genes.
  • The results showed that the beta-catenin gene in BMMNC of blast crisis of CML patients was expressed significantly higher than that in chronic phase (p < 0.001) and accelerated phase (p = 0.016) of CML patients and in normal donors (p = 0.004).
  • The expression of bcr/abl in blast crisis of CML was statistically higher than that in chronic phase of CML (p = 0.001).
  • The expression levels of beta-catenin and bcr/abl were correlated with each other in CML patients (r = 0.620, p < 0.001).
  • It is concluded that the beta-catenin gene in blast crisis of CML patients express higher than that in chronic phase and accelerated phase of CML, and its expression level is correlated with the level of bcr/abl expression.
  • The increased expression of beta-catenin may be account partly for the blast crisis of CML.

  • In chronic myeloid leukemia (CML), basophilia is a diagnostic and prognostic variable.
  • We applied the antibasogranulin antibody BB1 on paraffin-embedded BM sections in 21 control samples (normal BM), 45 patients with CML, 9 with chronic idiopathic myelofibrosis, 11 with polycythemia vera, 19 with essential thrombocythemia, and 7 with indolent systemic mastocytosis.
  • BB1+ BM cells were found to be highly elevated in patients with CML compared with normal BM or other MPDs, with maximum counts found in accelerated phase CML (median, 160 cells/mm(2)).
  • In summary, BB1 (basogranulin) is a new immunohistochemical basophil marker that should allow quantification of basophils in CML at diagnosis and during therapy.

  • Chronic myeloid leukemia (CML) is a malignant clonal myeloproliferative disorder in which the terminal differentiation is not altered until the appearance of an accelerated or blast phase.
  • We examined whether LMO2 protein expression can predict outcome CML patients undergoing tyrosine kinase inhibitor therapy, imatinib mesylate (IM).
  • Immunohistochemistry on bone marrow biopsy material for LMO2 protein was performed in 47 CML patients.
  • We report that the LMO2 protein expression is correlated with improved hematologic remission and overall survival in the CML patients treated with IM.
  • The immunohistologic analysis of LMO2 protein expression may become a predictive factor for anticipating the treatment responses of CML patients.

  • [Title] Dasatinib in imatinib-resistant Philadelphia chromosome-positive leukemias.
  • BACKGROUND: The BCR-ABL tyrosine kinase inhibitor imatinib is effective in Philadelphia chromosome-positive (Ph-positive) leukemias, but relapse occurs, mainly as a result of the outgrowth of leukemic subclones with imatinib-resistant BCR-ABL mutations.
  • We evaluated dasatinib, a BCR-ABL inhibitor that targets most imatinib-resistant BCR-ABL mutations, in patients with chronic myelogenous leukemia (CML) or Ph-positive acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL).
  • METHODS: Patients with various phases of CML or with Ph-positive ALL who could not tolerate or were resistant to imatinib were enrolled in a phase 1 dose-escalation study.
  • RESULTS: A complete hematologic response was achieved in 37 of 40 patients with chronic-phase CML, and major hematologic responses were seen in 31 of 44 patients with accelerated-phase CML, CML with blast crisis, or Ph-positive ALL.
  • Responses were maintained in 95 percent of patients with chronic-phase disease and in 82 percent of patients with accelerated-phase disease, with a median follow-up more than 12 months and 5 months, respectively.
  • Nearly all patients with lymphoid blast crisis and Ph-positive ALL had a relapse within six months.
  • Responses occurred among all BCR-ABL genotypes, with the exception of the T315I mutation, which confers resistance to both dasatinib and imatinib in vitro.
  • CONCLUSIONS: Dasatinib induces hematologic and cytogenetic responses in patients with CML or Ph-positive ALL who cannot tolerate or are resistant to imatinib. (ClinicalTrials.gov number, NCT00064233 [ClinicalTrials.gov].).

  • Chronic myeloid leukemia (CML) is a malignant clonal disorder of hematopoietic stem cells resulting in increased myeloid and erythroid cells and platelets, and marked hyperplasia in the bone marrow.
  • The natural history of CML is progression from a benign chronic phase, often through an accelerated phase, to a rapidly fatal blast crisis within 3-5 years.
  • The constitutively activated ABL tyrosine kinase domain of the chimeric BCR-ABL oncoprotein is responsible for the transformation of hematopoietic stem cells and the symptoms of CML.
  • Imatinib mesylate (Glivec), a specific small-molecule inhibitor of BCR-ABL, has become the standard drug therapy in all phases of the disease.
  • Imatinib has greatly improved the outcome for patients with CML.
  • Considerable progress has recently been made in understanding the structural biology of ABL and the molecular basis for resistance, facilitating the discovery and development of second- generation drugs designed to combat mutant forms of BCR-ABL.
  • The first of these compounds to enter clinical development were dasatinib (BMS-354825) and AMN107 and, from phase I results, both of these promise a breakthrough in the treatment of imatinib-resistant CML.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • Nilotinib is an orally administered BCR-ABL tyrosine kinase inhibitor that has shown good clinical efficacy in imatinib-resistant or -intolerant, Philadelphia chromosome-positive, chronic myeloid leukaemia (CML) in a phase I/II trial.
  • The phase I component of the trial established the dosage regimen used in the phase II part of the trial, which included several arms.
  • Three of these arms, or phase II trials, evaluated nilotinib in each of the three phases of CML (chronic, accelerated or blast crisis).I n the phase II trial in patients with chronic-phase CML, major cytogenetic response (primary endpoint) was achieved in 48% of the 280 patients who received nilotinib and had a follow-up period of > or = 6 months.
  • Major cytogenetic response rates did not differ between imatinib-resistant and -intolerant patients, and nilotinib was effective in patients with BCR-ABL mutations (except T315I).
  • Haematologic response rate (primary endpoint) was 47% in the phase II trial with nilotinib in patients with accelerated-phase CML (n = 119).
  • Complete haematologic response was achieved in 26% of patients and 21% had no evidence of leukaemia or returned to chronic-phase CML.
  • Data from the phase II trial in patients with CML in blast crisis (n = 135) also showed promising results, with 39% of patients achieving haematologic response with nilotinib.

  • In chronic myeloid leukaemia (CML), basophilia is a diagnostic and prognostic determinant.
  • OBJECTIVE: To detect and enumerate basophils in bone marrow sections in patients with CML and other MPD.
  • METHODS: The anti-basophil antibody 2D7 was applied to paraffin embedded bone marrow sections from normal/reactive subjects (n = 31), patients with CML (chronic phase, n = 37; accelerated phase, n = 9), and other MPD (chronic idiopathic myelofibrosis (CIMF), n = 20; polycythaemia vera (PV), n = 20; essential thrombocythaemia (ET), n = 20; indolent systemic mastocytosis (ISM), n = 7).
  • 2D7(+) bone marrow cells were found to increase in CML compared with normal/reactive bone marrow and other MPD (median numbers of 2D7(+) cells/mm(2): CML, 33; normal/reactive bone marrow, 6; CIMF, 10; PV, 6; ET, 5; ISM, 3; p<0.05).
  • The highest basophil counts were recorded in accelerated phase CML (115/mm(2)).
  • This approach should help in the quantification of bone marrow basophils at diagnosis and during anti-leukaemic treatment.

  • INTRODUCTION: Increased angiogenesis in bone marrow is one of the characteristics of chronic myeloid leukaemia (CML), a clonal myeloproliferative disorder that expresses a chimeric bcr/abl protein.
  • The impact of elevated VEGF expression on the course of chronic myeloid leukaemia is unknown.
  • OBJECTIVE: The aim of this study was the follow-up of VEGF expression during the course of CML.
  • METHODS: We studied VEGF expression of 85 CML patients (median age 50 years, range 16-75 years).
  • At the commencement of the study, 29 patients were in chronic phase (CP), 25 in an accelerated phase (AP), and 31 in the blast crisis (BC).
  • The temporal expression (percentage positivity per 1000 analysed cells) VEGF proteins over the course of CML were studied using the immunohistochemical technique utilizing relevant monoclonal antibodies.
  • It was correlated with the laboratory (Hb, WBC and platelet counts, and the percentage of blasts) and clinical parameters (organomegaly, duration of CP, AP, and BC) of disease progression.
  • CONCLUSION: Immunohistochemically confirmed significance of the expression of VEGF in dependence of the CML stage could be of clinical importance in deciding on the timing therapy.
  • These data suggest that VEGF plays a role in the biology of CML and that VEGF inhibitors should be investigated in CML.

  • [Title] Hematopoietic stem cell transplantation for T315I-mutated chronic myelogenous leukemia.
  • BACKGROUND: The T315I mutation of BCR/ABL gene is known to produce complete resistance of chronic myelogenous leukemia (CML) to all currently available BCR/ABL inhibitors.
  • However, evidence on efficiency of this treatment modality in CML with T315I mutation is lacking.
  • CASE REPORT: A 25-year-old patient was diagnosed with Philadelphia chromosome positive CML in accelerated phase.
  • Moreover, despite escalation of imatinib dosage, the disease relapsed after further 3 months of treatment.
  • Molecular studies revealed T315I mutation of BCR/ABL gene.
  • The course of transplantation was complicated by staphylococcal sepsis, grade I skin acute GvHD and limited chronic skin GVHD.
  • CONCLUSIONS: The clinical course of this case supports the idea that allogeneic hematopoietic transplantation is a viable treatment option for patients with CML bearing T315I mutation.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • [Title] Imatinib: a review of its use in chronic myeloid leukaemia.
  • Imatinib (Gleevec, Glivec) is a synthetic tyrosine kinase inhibitor used in the treatment of chronic myeloid leukaemia (CML).
  • It is specifically designed to inhibit the breakpoint cluster region (BCR)-Abelson (ABL) fusion protein that results from the chromosomal abnormality known as the Philadelphia chromosome.
  • CML is characterised by this abnormality, which leads to abnormalities of the peripheral blood and bone marrow including an increase in the number of granular leukocytes.
  • Imatinib is approved in numerous countries worldwide for the treatment of newly diagnosed Philadelphia chromosome-positive (Ph+) chronic-phase CML, Ph+ accelerated-phase or blast-crisis CML, and in patients with Ph+ chronic-phase CML who have failed to respond to interferon-alpha therapy.
  • It is also indicated in paediatric patients with newly diagnosed Ph+ chronic-phase CML, in accelerated-phase or blast-crisis CML, or in chronic-phase CML after failure of interferon-alpha therapy or when the disease has recurred after haematopoietic stem cell transplantation (HSCT).
  • Imatinib is effective and generally well tolerated in patients with Ph+ CML.
  • In patients with newly diagnosed chronic-phase CML, imatinib was more effective than interferon-alpha plus cytarabine in preventing progression of the disease and in achieving haematological and cytogenetic responses.
  • Patients with accelerated-phase or blast-crisis CML, or those who have not responded to prior interferon-alpha therapy also benefit from imatinib treatment.
  • The introduction of imatinib has had a marked impact on outcomes in patients with CML.
  • It remains a valuable treatment for all stages of the disease, especially initial treatment of newly diagnosed Ph+ chronic-phase CML, and is endorsed by European and US treatment guidelines as a first-line option.

  • The tyrosine kinase inhibitor imatinib inhibits the activity of the bcr/abl fusion protein present in patients with chronic myeloid leukemia.
  • Although in chronic phase patients response to therapy can be monitored by quantitative RT-PCR for bcr/abl mRNA transcripts, in advanced disease (accelerated phase or blast crisis) only few patients respond on a molecular level.
  • We investigated Wilms tumor gene (WT1) and bcr/abl mRNA transcripts in 16 accelerated phase CML patients by quantitative real time PCR.
  • In contrast to the bcr/abl mRNA levels the WT1 mRNA levels were indicative for hematologic relapse (n = 6) versus response (n = 10).

  • [Title] Synergy between proteasome inhibitors and imatinib mesylate in chronic myeloid leukemia.
  • BACKGROUND: Resistance developed by leukemic cells, unsatisfactory efficacy on patients with chronic myeloid leukemia (CML) at accelerated and blastic phases, and potential cardiotoxity, have been limitations for imatinib mesylate (IM) in treating CML.
  • METHODS AND FINDINGS: We tested the therapeutic efficacies as well as adverse effects of low dose IM in combination with proteasome inhibitor, Bortezomib (BOR) or proteasome inhibitor I (PSI), in two CML murine models, and investigated possible mechanisms of action on CML cells.
  • Consistently, BOR and PSI enhanced IM-induced inhibition of long-term clonogenic activity and short-term cell growth of CML stem/progenitor cells, and potentiated IM-caused inhibition of proliferation and induction of apoptosis of BCR-ABL+ cells.
  • While exerting suppressive effects on BCR-ABL, E2F1, and beta-catenin, IM/BOR and IM/PSI inhibited proteasomal degradation of protein phosphatase 2A (PP2A), leading to a re-activation of this important negative regulator of BCR-ABL.
  • CONCLUSION: These data suggest that combined use of tyrosine kinase inhibitor and proteasome inhibitor might be helpful for optimizing CML treatment.
