  • [Title] [Acute leukemia in children erroneously diagnosed as idiopathic juvenile arthritis].
  • [Transliterated title] Leucemia aguda en niños con diagnóstico erróneo de artritis idiopática juvenil.
  • We here present 3 Venezuelan children with acute leukemia, initially diagnosed as idiopathic juvenile arthritis because of the occurrence of pain and joint swelling at the onset of disease.
  • One patient presented with persistent unilateral sacroiliac pain leading to a wrong diagnosis of spondyloarthritis.
  • The elevation of acute phase reactants, disproportionate to the extent of joint disease, and marked elevation of serum lactate dehydrogenase, as well as characteristicradiological changes allowed the correct diagnosis in all cases.
  • This combination of clinical manifestations, clinical laboratory findings, and joint and bone imaging should prompt the clinician to an early diagnosis of acute leukemia in children with arthritis.

  • [Title] Changes of serum thymidine kinase in children with acute leukemia.
  • Our main goal was to determine the significance of elevated TK levels as a relapse marker during follow-up with child patients suffering from acute leukemia.
  • PATIENTS AND METHODS: TK serum levels in 38 children with acute leukemia (34 lymphoblastic, 4 myeloblastic) were determined using radio-receptor analysis (RRA, Immunotech, Prague, USA).
  • RESULTS: Our results showed that TK serum levels at the time of diagnosis were extremely high (78-5826 U/l, median value 403 U/l, normal < 8 U/l), while in remission TK serum levels were much lower (5-80 U/l, median value 31 U/l).
  • During relapse of acute leukemia (5 cases), TK levels increased considerably to measurements between 120-800 U/l (median value 324 U/l).
  • Sensitivity in this case was 87% and thus TK serum levels seem to be a very good parameter during follow-up because of acceptable sensitivity, low cost (4 $/sample) and the elimination of a requirement for screening of bone marrow samples.
  • CONCLUSION: While TK serum levels were helpful in predicting relapse during follow-up, it is necessary to note that they did not correlate with prognosis in our group of patients during the time of the initial diagnosis of acute leukemia.

  • [Title] Treatment of acute leukemia with unmanipulated HLA-mismatched/haploidentical blood and bone marrow transplantation.
  • Allogeneic hematopoietic stem cell transplantation (allo-HSCT) remains one of the best therapeutic options to cure acute leukemia (AL).
  • Recently, we developed a new method for HLA-mismatched/haploidentical transplantation without in vitro T cell depletion (TCD).
  • The incidence of grade 2-4 acute graft-versus-host disease (aGVHD) was 45.8%, and that of grades 3 and 4 was 13.4%, which was not associated with the extent of HLA disparity.
  • One hundred forty-one of the 250 patients survived free of disease recurrence at a median of 1092 days (range: 442-2437 days) of follow-up.
  • Seventeen patients received DLI as a treatment for relapse after transplantation and 7 patients achieved leukemia-free survival (LFS).
  • The 3-year probability of LFS for acute myelogenous leukemia (AML) was 70.7% and 55.9%, and for acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL) it was 59.7% and 24.8% in standard-risk and high-risk groups, respectively.
  • Lower LFS were associated with diagnosis of acute leukemia in the high-risk group (P= .001, relative risk [RR], 95% confidence interval [CI]: 2.94[1.535-5.631]) and the occurrence of aGVHD of grades 3 and 4 (P= .004).

  • [Title] Acute leukemia in early childhood.
  • Acute leukemia in early childhood is biologically and clinically distinct.
  • The particular characteristics of this malignancy diagnosed during the first months of life have provided remarkable insights into the etiology of the disease.
  • The pro-B, CD10 negative immunophenotype is typically found in infant acute leukemia, and the most common genetic alterations are the rearrangements of the MLL gene.
  • The Brazilian Collaborative Study Group of Infant Acute Leukemia has found that mothers exposed to dipyrone, pesticides and hormones had an increased chance to give birth to babies with infant acute leukemia [OR = 1.48 (95%CI = 1.05-2.07), OR = 2.27 (95%CI = 1.56-3.31) and OR = 9.08 (95%CI = 2.95-27.96)], respectively.
  • This review aims to summarize recent clues that have facilitated the elucidation of the biology of early childhood leukemias, with emphasis on infant acute leukemia in the Brazilian population.

  • [Title] Reproductive history, infertility treatment, and the risk of acute leukemia in children with down syndrome: a report from the Children's Oncology Group.
  • BACKGROUND: Children with Down syndrome (DS) have from 10 to 20 times the risk of developing acute leukemia than the general pediatric population.
  • There is mixed evidence for associations between reproductive history or infertility and acute leukemia among children without DS.
  • METHODS: The authors conducted a case-control study of acute leukemia among children with DS to investigate possible risk factors in this population.
  • From 1997 to 2002, 158 children aged <20 years with DS who had a diagnosis of acute leukemia (97 children with acute lymphoblastic leukemia [ALL] and 61 children with acute myeloid leukemia [AML]) were enrolled at Children's Oncology Group (COG) institutions.
  • RESULTS: Null results were observed overall and by subtype for reproductive factors, including previous pregnancy outcomes and contraceptive use, and for most infertility outcomes.

  • [Title] Comprehensive flow cytometry phenotype in acute leukemia at diagnosis and at relapse.
  • Multiparameter flow cytometry (MFC) plays a vital role in the detection of minimal residual disease (MRD) and diagnosis of relapse in acute leukemia.
  • However, application of a limited panel of antibodies in MFC leads to high rates of false-negative and false-positive results.
  • Thirteen patients with acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL) and 12 patients with acute myeloid leukemia (AML) were immunophenotyped by MFC at diagnosis and at relapse using a comprehensive panel of monoclonal antibodies (McAbs) to 27 antigens and CD45/SSC gating.
  • In 23 of 25 patients (92.3%), changes in at least one of progenitor-associated, myeloid and lymphoid antigens between diagnosis and relapse were observed.
  • Multiple panels of three or more McAbs are likely to be required in the monitoring of MRD and diagnosis of relapse in acute leukemia by MFC.

  • [Title] Low turnover bone disease in Egyptian children with acute leukemia.
  • The aim of this work was to study bone turnover markers, calcium homeostasis and bone mineral density (BMD) in children with acute leukemia at diagnosis, after induction chemotherapy, and during maintenance therapy to delineate abnormalities present.
  • After evaluation of L2-L4 BMD using dual-energy X-ray absorptiometry in patients with acute myeloid and lymphoid leukemia at presentation and after treatment, the results were compared to 352 healthy age- and sex-matched Egyptian controls.
  • Osteopenia was observed at diagnosis and during treatment in patients with acute leukemia.
  • At diagnosis osteopenia was observed in 27 patients (62.8%): 10 (23.3%) had non severe osteopenia and 17 (39.5%) had severe osteopenia.
  • Parathyroid hormone (PTH) (pg/ml) levels demonstrated non significant differences between children with acute leukemia at different stages of therapy and controls, while, 25 (OH) D3 (ng/ml) was significantly lower in acute leukemia patients at different stages of therapy compared to controls (p<0.001).
  • Osteocalcin (ng/ml) is significantly lower in patients at different stages of the disease compared to controls (p<0.001) but there was no significant difference between patients at different stages of therapy.
  • Deoxy-pyridoline cross links showed non-significant difference between the different types of acute leukemia and with controls.
  • Osteopenia is a significant problem in children with acute leukemia at presentation and after chemotherapy.
  • Osteopenia in acute leukemia appears to be of the low turnover type (decreased osteoblastic activity and decreased bone mineralization).

  • [Title] [Id4 gene methylation for detection of minimal residual disease in acute leukemia].
  • OBJECTIVE: To evaluate the possibility of Id4 gene promoter methylation as a biomarker for minimal residual disease (MRD) detection in acute leukemia.
  • METHODS: Methylation specific-PCR technique was used to detect Id4 gene methylation in samples with different percentages of leukemia cells from leukemia cell line and bone marrows from leukemia patients in complete remission (CR).
  • RESULTS: Id4 gene methylation could be detected in samples containing 1% or lower leukemia cells.
  • Frequency of Id4 gene methylation in acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL) patients in CR was 64.3% being higher than that in acute myeloid leukemia (AML) patients in CR.
  • CONCLUSION: Id4 gene promoter methylation is a candidate of biomarker for MRD detection in acute leukemias.

  • Echinococcosis, also known as hydatid disease or hydatidosis, is a zoonotic illness caused by the larval form of Echinococcus spp.
  • We treated and followed approximately 1200 patients with different hematologic neoplastic diseases between 1985 and 2003, and only one of these individuals had concomitant acute leukemia and liver hydatidosis.
  • This report describes the case of a 19-year-old man who had both primary refractoriness of acute leukemia (AML-M4) and liver hydatidosis.
  • The patient underwent 3 months of treatment with agents that targeted the leukemia (daunorubicin, idarubicin, cytarabine, fludarabine) and its complications (amphotericin B, amphotericin B lipid complex, liposomal amphotericin B).

  • [Title] Amplification of AML1 gene in association with karyotype, age and diagnosis in acute leukemia patients.
  • AML1 is normally expressed in all hematopoietic lineages and is essential for the transcriptional regulation of a number of hematopoietic specific genes.
  • In acute leukemia three types of abnormality of AML1 have been observed -- chromosomal translocations, point mutation and duplication or amplification of the unrearranged gene.
  • The most common origin of extra copies of the AML1 gene is polysomy of chromosome 21 or a partial duplication of the long arm of chromosome 21, less frequently ring, isochromosome or the tandem repetition of chromosome 21.

  • : 10048 Background: T-cell acute lymphoblastic leukemia (T-ALL) is representing 10-15% of pediatric ALL.
  • OBJECTIVES: We reviewed all patients diagnosed with T-ALL to assess risk classification according to NCI criteria, type of therapy received, overall survival and causes of mortality.
  • METHODS: Retrospective review of all patients files diagnosed with T-ALL from 1989 until now with data collection including; sex, age, white cell count (WBCs), CNS disease, type of protocol used, length of survival, overall survival, cause of death (toxic, disease).
  • Median WBCs 50,000/Cmm (range: 1.500-619,000/Cmm) and positive CNS at diagnosis 10/52 (20%).
  • Overall survival 27/52 (52%) and 25 pts. died (48%); 15 secondary to disease recurrence (9 on UKALL, 4 BFM, 2 CCG 1961); 4 during induction, 1 fulminant hepatic failure, 1 tumor lysis syndrome, and 4 due to toxicities (mucormycosis, staphylococcal toxic shock syndrome, CMV pneumonia, pseudomonas sepsis).
  • Mean length of survivors 4 year (range 4-140 month) and mean length for non-survivors 1 year (range 0.1-40 months).
  • Further risk and response stratification in addition to intensification of therapy for T-cell ALL in our center may prove to be beneficial.

  • [Title] IKZF1 (IKAROS) deletions as a prognostic marker in BCR-ABL1 positive acute lymphoblastic leukemia patients: A GIMEMA ALL WP Report.
  • : 11005 Expression of BCR-ABL1 in hematopoietic stem cells can alone induce a chronic myeloid leukemia (CML) but cooperating oncogenic lesions are required for the generation of a blastic leukemia.
  • To identify oncogenic sub-microscopic lesions that cooperate with BCR-ABL1 to induce ALL, by high resolution single nucleotide polymorphism (SNP) arrays (250K NspI and SNP 6.0, Affymetrix) we studied 106 patients (pts) with de novo adult BCR-ABL1-positive ALL.
  • Gene expression profiling analysis of pts with IKZF1 deletion vs wild-type pts identified a unique signature characterized by a down-regulation of genes involved in pre-B-cell differentiation (e.g.
  • VPREB1, VPREB3, IGLL3, BLK), demonstrating that genomic IKZF1 alterations have a strong impact on trascriptoma and contribute to an impaired B-cell differentiation.
  • Univariate analysis showed that the IKZF1 deletion is a negative prognostic marker influencing the cumulative incidence of relapse (10.1 months for pts with deletion vs 56.1 months for wild-type pts, p=0.0103) and disease-free survival (DFS) (10.1 months vs 32.1 months, respectively, p=0.0229).

  • : 7070 Background: In contrast to the poor prognosis associated with hyperleukocytosis, the prognostic significance of leukopenia at the time of diagnosis of AML is unknown.
  • Simultaneously obtained peripheral blood and marrow blasts were analyzed for cell surface expression of CD34, cKit, CXCR4, PCAM, VLA-2, VLA-3, VLA-4, VLA-5, and FLT3 using flow cytometry.
  • RESULTS: Patients' characteristics (gender, secondary vs. de novo, and cytogenetic [CTG] risk) were comparable between the 2 groups.
  • Induction mortality was 0% for leukopenic and 5% for non-leukopenic pts.
  • In primary refractory pts, median survival was longer for leukopenic (11) vs. non-leukopenic (34) pts: 137 vs. 81 d (p = 0.026).
  • Event-free (EFS), disease-free (DFS), and overall survivals (OS) were lower in the leukopenic group: 12 vs. 14; 14 vs. 17; and 17 vs. 19 mos, respectively; but did not reach statistical significance.
  • The level of expression of cell surface adhesion molecules on blood and marrow blasts was comparable for the 2 groups.
  • Leukopenic AML did not have over-expression of cell surface adhesion molecules.

  • [Title] MicroRNA 181a (miR-181a) expression as a prognosticator in cytogenetically normal acute myeloid leukemia (CN AML).
  • : 7001 Background: We showed recently that CEBPA mutations (mut) in CN AML are associated with better outcome and a unique microRNA expression profile, including miR-181a upregulation.
  • METHODS: We analyzed 187 de novo CN AML adult patients (pts) aged <60 years (y; median 45) similarly treated on CALGB 9621 and 19808.
  • Of these, 122 had molecular high risk [FLT3-ITD or NPM1 wild type (wt)] and 65 low risk (no FLT3-ITD, NPM1 mut) CN AML.
  • RESULTS: Higher miR-181a levels (miR-181a↑) were associated with CEBPA mut, NPM1 wt, no FLT3-TKD, lower ERG expression, higher %FAB M1/M2, lower WBC and age, higher blood blasts, and lower % gum hypertrophy. miR-181a↑ tended to associate with more complete remissions (CRs; p = .07) and significantly associated with longer disease-free (DFS; p = .05) and overall (OS; p = .01) survival (median follow-up 6.5 y for pts alive).
  • CONCLUSIONS: miR-181a expression is a prognostic marker in CN AML, mainly in the molecular high risk group, where it predicts outcome independently of other variables including CEBPA mutations.

  • METHODS: From July 2000 to March 2008, 348 patients with esophageal squamous cell carcinoma underwent CRT.
  • RESULTS: Four patients, who achieved CR after CRT, developed leukemia.
  • Case1, 60-yo-male, developed overt acute myeloid leukemia (AML) from myelodysplastic syndrome 48 months after CRT.
  • Cytogenetic analysis showed complicated abnormalities including deletion 5q.
  • Case3, 72-yo-male, developed Burkitt leukemia with t(8;14)(q24;q32) 19 months after CRT.
  • Case4, 65-yo-male, developed myeloid crisis of chronic myelogenous leukemia with complicated abnormalities including t(9;22)(q34;q11) 48 months after CRT.
  • Case 1 and 3 had localized disease and received single course of neoadjuvant CRT.
  • Case 2 and 4 had advance disease and received 2 courses of CRT.
  • All patients eventually died of leukemia.
  • To this end, atypical cytogenetic abnormalities seen in the present cases give a new insight into the biology of therapy-related leukemia.
  • Notably, this is the first report presenting the incidence of secondary leukemia by nedaplatin.

  • [Title] Prevalence and therapeutic relationships of pericardial effusions in patients with leukemia.
  • : 7067 Background: Little is known regarding the prevalence and natural history of pericardial disease in patients with leukemia.
  • To study this issue, we retrospectively analyzed a large cohort of patients with leukemia, who were evaluated at MD Anderson Cancer Center (MDACC), to determine the prevalence, timing, and characteristics of PEf in leukemia.
  • METHODS: We reviewed 3,327 patients with acute myeloid leukemia (AML, N = 1,809, 54%), acute lymphocytic leukemia (ALL, N = 494, 15%), or myelodysplastic syndrome (MDS, N =1,024, 31%), who were seen at MDACC from August 2003 to July 2008.
  • Data regarding diagnosis, timing, effusion size, and prior therapy was collected in the 401 patients (20.2%) that had echocardiographic evidence of PEf.
  • In the 401 total patients with PEf, 22.8%, 25.0%, and 18.4% (p = 0.33) of these effusions were found before treatment in the three disease categories, respectively.
  • The rest occurred after some form of chemotherapy, accounting for 77.2%, 75.0%, and 81.6% (p = 0.73) of the total PEf by disease, respectively.
  • No differences in effusion characteristics, including severity, were observed among different types of therapies including HDACi.
  • CONCLUSIONS: PEf are relatively common in patients with leukemia at initial presentation and are usually asymptomatic.
  • Their incidence increases with therapy administration although it appears that this is not a process related to specific classes of treatment or type of leukemia.

  • [Title] Association of time to leukemia (TTL) in NOD/SCID mice with expression of apoptosis regulators in pediatric ALL.
  • : 10042 Background: Acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL) is the most frequent malignant disease in childhood.
  • In a recent study we transplanted pediatric leukemia samples from newly diagnosed BCP-ALL patients into NOD/SCID mice.
  • Time to leukemia (TTL) was analyzed for each patient sample as time from transplant to overt leukemia in the recipients.
  • Patients whose leukemia cells engrafted rapidly showed a clearly inferior relapse free survival in contrast to patient samples with prolonged in vivo growth.
  • METHODS: Gene expression profiles of ALL samples (N = 14) with short versus long TTL in the xenograft model were analyzed using a human whole genome array (Affymetrix U133 Plus 2.0) correlating gene expression values (relative expression) to the time from transplant to manifestation of leukemia in the NOD/SCID mice (TTL, in weeks) by quantitative traits analysis (QTA).
  • Patient samples exhibiting a short time to overt leukemia in the xenotransplant model associated with poor relapse free survival showed down-regulated XAF1 and impaired caspase-3 activation leading to decreased apoptosis of the leukemia cells.
  • CONCLUSIONS: Taken together, we used a novel approach directly correlating gene expression values to time from transplant to overt leukemia (TTL) identifying the apoptosis regulator XAF1 to be associated with poor outcome of patients.

  • [Title] Analysis of prognostic factors in patients with adult T-cell leukemia/lymphoma.
  • : 8575 Background: Adult T-cell leukemia/lymphoma (ATLL) is associated with human T-cell lymphotropic virus type-I (HTLV-1) described in Southern Japan, Europe, Caribbean and South America.
  • Diagnosis was based on clinical history and histological findings consistent with ATLL and either positive HTLV-1 serology or evidence of HTLV-1 integration.
  • Clinical types were acute (n=45), lymphomatous (n=43), cutaneous (n=10), smoldering (n=3) and chronic (n=1).
  • Median OS for acute, lymphomatous, smoldering and cutaneous subtype were 2, 11, 17 and 39 months, respectively (log-rank 28.5, p<0.00001).
  • The prognostic index for T-cell lymphoma (PIT) score was determined in 80 patients; 20 (25%), 17 (21%), 33 (41%) and 10 (13%) patients had scores of 0-1, 2, 3 and 4, respectively.
  • CONCLUSIONS: This retrospective series represents the largest Latin-American experience on ATLL, which is a heterogeneous disease with distinct clinical features and outcomes.
  • The IPI ant PIT scores, used for risk-stratification of aggressive B-cell and peripheral T-cell lymphomas, respectively, appear as good prognostic indicators for ATLL as well.

  • : 7025 Here, we report the results of a multicenter retrospective study analyzing the effect of ATG, incorporated within the MAC regimen for MUD-transplants in leukemic patients.
  • The purpose of the study was to compare the incidence and severity of acute and chronic GVHD as well as overall outcome.
  • 171 adult patients with acute leukemia and MDS, for whom detailed allelic HLA typing (4 digits) was available, were included.
  • With a median follow-up of 30.3 (range, 2.6-68.1) months, grade 0-1 and 2-4 acute GVHD occurred in 74 (46%) and 88 patients (54%) respectively, with grade 3-4 acute GVHD being significantly lower in the ATG group (18% vs. 32%; p = 0.04).
  • In multivariate analysis, an HLA allelic mismatch and the non-use of ATG were associated with an increased risk of grade 3-4 acute GVHD (RR = 2.80, 95% CI, 1.5-5.3, p = 0.001; and RR = 2.4, 95% CI, 1.1-5.0, p = 0.02 respectively).

  • Indications for SCT included acute leukemia (n=38), myeloproliferative disease (n=20), lymphoma (n=13), and others (n=29).
  • 75% of pts reported moderate to severe changes in taste perception on a semiquantitative visual analogue scale during the acute phase of SCT with no differences between the three groups (73%, 79%, 75%).
  • The lower incidence of persiting changes in taste perception after autologous SCT might be attributed to the absence of graft versus host disease or the dispensability of immunosuppression.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • METHODS: We conducted a prospective cohort study of adult cancer patients (excluding acute leukemia and stem cell transplant patients) admitted to a community hospital January 2003-December 2006.
  • We identified the type of SAE, outcome of each admission, time form chemotherapy to admission and from admission to discharge/death, and the disease and treatment characteristics of each patient.
  • The average time from chemotherapy to admission was shorter for fatal vs. non-fatal admissions (3.6 vs. 7.7 days; p<.01).
  • CONCLUSIONS: Fatalities during admissions for CR-SAE's in a community cancer center are relatively uncommon and are not associated with age or type of SAE/cancer.

  • : 3543 Background: The class I PI3Ks regulate a variety of cellular functions relevant to oncogenesis, including metabolism, proliferation and survival.
  • The PI3K p110δ isoform is highly expressed in cells of hematopoietic origin and plays a key role in B cell maturation and function.
  • In vitro studies of 0.1 to 10 μM CAL-101 showed inhibition of pAKT expression and/or apoptotic effects against primary chronic lymphocytic leukemia (CLL) and acute myeloid leukemia (AML) cells and against a range of leukemia and lymphoma cell lines.
  • METHODS: In an ongoing phase 1 dose escalation study in sequential cohorts of 3 patients with relapsed/refractory CLL or select B-cell non-Hodgkin's lymphoma, CAL-101 is administered orally twice daily for 28 days per cycle.
  • Two of 6 patients attained partial response and 4 have stable disease.
  • Partial responses were observed after 2 cycles of 50 mg in a patient with mantle cell lymphoma with 6 prior therapies, and after 1 cycle of 100 mg in a patient with follicular lymphoma with 6 prior therapies, including autologous stem cell transplant.
  • Disease specific cohort expansion will occur at the maximally tolerated dose, and patients with AML will be added.
  • CONCLUSIONS: Early results from a phase 1 study of the oral PI3K p110δ inhibitor CAL-101 show that it is well tolerated and has preliminary clinical activity in patients with B-cell malignancies.

  • [Title] Extramedullary Leukemic Relapses Following Hematopoietic Stem Cell Transplantation with Nonmyeloablative Conditioning.
  • Of a group of 149 patients who underwent allogeneic stem cell transplantation using the "Mexican approach," a nonablative preparative regimen, 49 individuals developed bone marrow relapse, and 8 patients developed extramedullary relapse (EMR).
  • When EMR was noted, acute graft-versus-host disease (GVHD) had presented in 4 patients, and limited forms of chronic GVHD were present in 3 patients.
  • The only individual alive 240 days after relapse shows no evidence of a full-blown hematologic relapse.
  • An EMR after allogeneic hematopoietic stem cell transplantation usually has a bad prognosis and presents mainly in individuals with high-risk malignancies.

  • [Title] Importance of genetic heterogeneity in curing adult acute leukemia (AL).
  • Publication of the French-American-British classification 34 years ago resulted in acceptance that morphology and cytochemistry separated AL into two different diseases, acute myeloid leukemia (AML) and acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL), that required separate treatment.
  • The most striking example of increased curability of AL is acute promyelocytic leukemia, in which targeted therapy combined with chemotherapy has increased survival from a 2-week median to an 80% cure rate.
  • Recognition of increased sensitivity of a genetic subtype of AML to high-dose cytarabine (HiDAC) has increased the cure rate of core-binding factor (CBF) AML from <10%-25% to 55%-60%.
  • Among adult de novo AML 40%-45% are cytogenetically normal (CN); the striking molecular heterogeneity of CN-AML is now being recognized and promises to allow individualized approaches that improve substantially upon the current cure rate of 40%.
  • New approaches to studying the leukemia genome and epigenome should improve our understanding of AL heterogeneity, identify new therapeutic targets, and allow the cure of most patients.

  • [Title] The inducible cyclic adenosine 3',5'-monophosphate early repressor (ICER) enhances drug sensitivity in acute myeloid leukemia.
  • CREB was previously demonstrated to be overexpressed in acute leukemia, whereas ICER was found rapidly degradated being unable to control gene transcription.
  • ICER exogenous expression was demonstrated to repress CREB targets preventing leukemia progression.
  • We hypothesized that ICER restoration deserves a special consideration for playing a role in CREB oncogenic feature and in modeling leukemic cell phenotype.
  • We monitored transcription and translation of a series of genes involved in different pathways by quantitative gene expression and western blot analysis.
  • We investigate ICER's role in cell death after treatment with chemotherapic drugs.
  • RESULTS: We revealed that ICER was able to control gene expression in leukemia, principally of genes involved in cell death and survival.
  • Cell cycle analyses revealed a block in G2 phase, a lowered cell proliferation and clonogenic potential with respect to HL60 treated at the same conditions.

  • : 10046 Background: Acute Lymphatic Leukemia is a curable disease in the range of 80 - 90% in developed countries by aggressive protocol like BFM, St. Judes' but result is much less in adolescence age group (60-70%).
  • In a follow-up period of 24 - 88 months (with an average of 54 months) the disease-free survival ( DFS) was 42 (56%) patients with an overall survival of 46 (61.34%) patients.
  • The major cause of the mortality was infection 18% (24.0% patients) followed progressive disease 9 (12.0%) and hemorrhage 2 (2.7%).
  • CONCLUSIONS: The data of acute lymphatic leukemia in adolescent is not satisfactory as compared to other pediatric patients.

  • Although neoplastic diseases are known risk factors for the development of VTE, little is known about the incidence and predisposing factors of VTE among leukemia patients (pts).
  • METHODS: We performed a retrospective study to determine the incidence and risk factors associated with development of VTE among pts with ALL, BL, LL at M. D.
  • Pts who used oral contraception or hormone replacement therapy (OCP/HRT) were 2 times (95% CI: 1.07-3.92) more likely to develop VTE than non-users.
  • In a multivariate model, significant predictors of VTE were age 40-59 yrs, plt count 50-99 x 10<sup>9</sup>/L, diagnosis of Ph-positive ALL, history of VTE, and OCP/HRT use.
  • In addition to traditional risk factors, disease-specific features may also predispose pts to higher VTE risk.
  • Further studies should be done in other leukemias to establish guidelines in the prevention and management of VTE in pts with leukemia.

  • [Title] Differences in length of stay among hospitalized children with acute lymphoblastic leukemia.
  • : 10044 Background: Acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL) is the most common malignancy among children in the United States.
  • METHODS: We used 2000, 2003, and 2006 data from the Healthcare Cost and Utilization Project (HCUP) Kids' Inpatient Database (KID) which contains pediatric discharges from community, non-rehabilitation hospitals.
  • RESULTS: We found the following factors related to greater LOS among hospitalized children with ALL: Non-Hispanic blacks vs. non-Hispanic whites (Rate Ratio (RR) = 1.06, CI:1.03-1.10), Hispanics vs. non-Hispanic whites (RR = 1.07, CI:1.04-1.10), age < 1 year vs. age 1-5 years (RR = 1.93, CI:1.83-2.04), female vs. male (RR = 1.05, CI:1.03-1.07), lowest quartile of household income in patient's zip code vs. highest quartile (RR = 1.09, CI:1.06-1.12), Medicaid vs. private insurance (RR = 1.11, CI:1.09-1.14), children's hospital vs. non-children's (RR = 1.11, CI:1.08-1.14), Western region of United States vs. Northeast region (RR = 1.14, CI:1.11-1.17), emergency room admission vs. routine admission (RR = 1.23, CI:1.20-1.26), blood transfusion (RR = 1.64, CI:1.61-1.67), bone marrow transplant (RR = 7.64, CI:7.11-8.20), and neutropenia (RR = 1.22, CI:1.19-1.24).
  • CONCLUSIONS: Race/ethnicity, age, sex, household income, insurance status, admission source, hospital type and region, transfusion, bone marrow transplant, and neutropenia were significantly associated with longer LOS.

  • [Title] Pilot study of haploidentical natural killer cell transplantation in childhood acute myeloid leukemia.
  • : 10034 Background: In the setting of hematopoietic stem cell transplantation (HSCT), donor natural killer (NK) cells exhibit potent anti-leukemic effects without causing graft-versus-host disease.
  • We hypothesized that the transplantation of purified haploidentical NK cells may be a safe and effective form of consolidation therapy that will reduce the risk of relapse among children with acute myeloid leukemia (AML) who are not treated with HSCT.
  • In this pilot study, we assessed the safety, feasibility, and engraftment of NK cell infusions in 10 patients with AML in first remission.
  • RESULTS: The 10 patients had a median age of 2.5 years (range, 8 months to 21 years) and a median leukocyte count of 62 x 10<sup>9</sup>/L (range, 4 to 487) at diagnosis.
  • Leukemic cell genetic abnormalities included CBFβ-MYH11in 4 cases, RBM15-MKL1in 2 cases, MLL-ENL and MLL-AF9 in 1 case each; 2 cases had no detectable abnormalities.
  • All patients had detectable donor NK cells at one or more time points: donor NK cell chimerism ranged from 0% to 30% during the first 4 weeks after the infusions and was greater than 1% in 9 cases at week 1, 4 cases at week 2, 5 cases at week 3, and 3 cases at week 4.
  • One patient had prolonged NK engraftment (189 days), but no non-hematological toxicity.
  • Grade 3-4 non-hematological toxicity was limited to one respiratory viral infection and one episode of febrile neutropenia.
  • We have recently opened a new trial to evaluate the efficacy of NK cell therapy in children in first remission of AML.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • : 11037 Background: PRDM16 is a gene located on 1p36.32 that encodes for a zinc finger transcription factor and contains an N-terminal PR domain.
  • It has been shown to be involved in the reciprocal translocation t(1;3)(p36;q21) and more rarely the t(1;21)(p36;q22) which both occur in myelodysplastic syndromes (MDS) and acute myeloid leukemias (AML).
  • These translocations result in the overexpression of a truncated version of the PRDM16 protein that lacks the PR domain.
  • METHODS: We studied 35 myeloid malignancies, 12 lymphoid malignancies and 3 undifferentiated acute leukemias with 1p36 abnormalities by fluorescent in situ hybridization (FISH) with a bacterial artificial chromosomes (BAC) contig containing 50 BAC probes on 1p36.
  • We identified the respective candidate partner loci : TEL/ETV6, IKZF1, CDH4 and a non-coding unknown sequence.
  • Interestingly, the shortest isoform of MDS/EVI-1, lacking the PR domain, is supposed to have an oncogenic effect due to its translocation-induced upregulation in AML.

  • [Title] Acute promielocytic leukemia: 14 years experience at the University Hospital, San Juan, Puerto Rico.
  • : e18006 Background: Acute promielocytic leukemias (APL) are a unique example in carcinogenesis, of maturation arrest at the promielocytic stage, associated with a chromosomal reciprocal translocation of a portion of chromosome 15 and 17 with the formation of fusion proteins between the PML gene and the alpha-retinoic acid receptor site.
  • METHODS: Since 1994 when transretinoic acid (ATRA) became available to us, we developed a protocol incorporating this drug to the standard regime of induction chemotherapy for acute leukemias used in our institution of 7 days of continuous infusion of cytosine arabinoside (Ara-C) and three days of daunorubicine (7+3), starting the ATRA on day 14 at 45 mg/m2 and continued daily for 120 days.

  • The aim of this study was to investigate the feasibility of monitoring minimal residual disease (MRD) of leukemia with methylation specified-polymerase chain reaction (MS-PCR).
  • The MS-PCR technique was used to detect the methylation status of Id4 gene in different ratios of leukemia cells.
  • In conclusion, the MS-PCR technique can detect the Id4 gene methylation in leukemia cell sample containing 0.1% of HL-60 cells, moreover the Id4 gene methylation in various leukemia cells shows no significant difference, thereby use of MS-PCR to detect the Id4 methylation level may be a potential approach for monitoring of MRD.
  • Id4 gene promoter methylation is a candidate of biomarker for MRD detection in acute leukemias.

  • [Title] [Present status in studying immunotherapy for acute leukemia and its perspective--Editorial].
  • One of the important approaches for further prolonging remission duration and eradicating minimal residual disease in acute leukemia is immunotherapy.
  • Four kinds of immunotherapy for acute leukemia are under investigation:.
  • (1) monoclonal antibodies, among them, Mylotarg (cytotoxic antibiotic calicheamicin linked to CD33 Mab) is given for the treatment of refractory or relapsed acute myeloid leukemia and molecular relapse in acute promyelocytic leukemia with good results, Campath-1H (antiCD52 Mab) is administered in the treatment of prolymphocytic leukemia and Rituximab (anti-CD20 Mab) in B-PLL with high complete remission rates.
  • Other Mabs under preclinical and clinical trials include anti-IL-2 receptor Mab for the treatment of acute T lymphocytic leukemia, anti-220 kD Mab-6G7 for acute leukemias, recombinant immune toxin BL22 (anti-CD22) for hairy cell leukemia and Mabs labeled with radio-isotopes for different types of acute leukemias;.
  • (2) adoptive cellular immunotherapy using cytokine-induced killer cell, alloreactive NK cells, allogeneic or autologous leukemic-specific CD8(+) cytotoxic T lymphocytes, and other immune effector cells;.
  • (4) leukemia vaccines of several different formulations including antigen-specific, leukemia cell-based, leukemia antigen-pulsed dendritic cell (DC) and leukemia-derived DC vaccines, the latter two formulations are more attractive.
  • In conclusion, up to now, the most effective example of immunotherapy in acute leukemia is provided by the administration of Mabs, and the majority of other approaches in immunotherapy for acute leukemia although promising, need further studies.

  • We retrospectively evaluated the incidence of symptomatic venous thromboembolism before chemotherapy in 719 patients (371 males and 348 females, median age of 57.4 years), diagnosed with acute leukemia [534 with acute myelogenous leukemia, 185 with acute lymphoblastic leukemia].
  • Fifteen patients (2.09%) had venous thromboembolism (objectively confirmed in 13 patients) in close temporal relationship to the onset of acute leukemia.
  • The incidence of venous thromboembolism was the same in acute myelogenous and lymphoblastic leukemia.
  • Venous thromboembolism occurred in all subtypes of acute leukemia, but was most common in promyelocytic leukemia.
  • Overall, survival, disease-free survival, and remission duration did not differ between the patient groups with and without venous thromboembolism.

  • [Title] Multilineage involvement of light microscopic myeloperoxidase-negative acute leukemia.
  • The classification of acute leukemia has traditionally been based on a combination of morphology and cytochemical staining data, including myeloperoxidase (MPO) reaction; however, a recent World Health Organization (WHO) classification entails use of cytogenetic and molecular findings in addition to the classic morphological and immunophenotypic analyses.
  • These cases may be classified as acute leukemia of ambiguous lineage in the recent WHO classification.
  • We report the case of a 49-year-old man with acute leukemia with multilineage phenotypes.
  • Morphological findings led to a diagnosis of acute myeloid leukemia M2 by the French-American-British classification, but at light microscopy the results of MPO staining were negative for blast cells.
  • In contrast, results of reverse transcription polymerase chain reaction and fluorescence-activated cell sorter analyses were positive for expression of MPO messenger RNA and protein.
  • The blast cells expressed CD4, CD19, CD22, CD33, CD38, CD79a, and HLA-DR and showed rearrangement of the immunoglobulin heavy chain and TCR-3 genes.
  • Results of immunoelectron microscopic analysis of the blast cells were positive for MPO, CD19, CD33, CD34, CD38 and glycophorin A but not for platelet peroxidase.
  • According to these results, the blast cells had at least 4 lineage phenotypes.
  • We concluded that the multiparameter analyses conducted in this case, including immunological and ultrastructural assays, were important in arriving at the appropriate diagnosis of acute leukemia of ambiguous lineage in the new WHO classification.

  • [Title] Frequency of fab subtypes in acute myeloid leukemia patients at Aga Khan University Hospital Karachi.
  • BACKGROUND: Acute myeloid leukemia (AML) is a heterogeneous disease.
  • Therefore, various parameters are needed to classify this disease into subtypes, so that specific treatment approaches can be utilized effectively.
  • The commonly used method for diagnosis and classification is based on FAB criteria using morphology and cytochemical stains.
  • The aim of present study is to determine the frequency of various sub types in acute myeloid leukemia using FAB criteria in our population.
  • This will aid in the correct diagnosis of acute leukemia and hence proper management of the patients.
  • The patients were diagnosed on the basis of bone marrow morphology using FAB classification.
  • CONCLUSIONS: The most common FAB subtype observed in our study was Acute myelomonocytic leukemia (M4) which is in accordance with studies reported from Saudia Arabia and a previous study reported from our institution.
  • However,other national and international studies have reported Myeloblastic Leukemia with maturation (M2) as the predominant subtype of AML.

  • [Title] Comparable long-term survival after unrelated and HLA-matched sibling donor hematopoietic stem cell transplantations for acute leukemia in children younger than 18 months.
  • PURPOSE: To describe outcomes after unrelated donor stem cell transplantation (HCT) in children (< 18 months at diagnosis) with acute leukemia and compare these with outcomes after human leukocyte antigen (HLA)-matched sibling donor HCT.
  • PATIENTS AND METHODS: We compared the results of unrelated donor HCT with bone marrow (n = 85) or cord blood grafts (n = 81) and HLA-matched sibling donor HCT with bone marrow grafts (n = 101) for acute myeloid or acute lymphoblastic leukemia using Cox proportional hazards models.
  • Unrelated donor HCT recipients were younger, more likely to have MLL gene rearrangement, to have advanced leukemia, and to receive irradiation before HCT.
  • Risks of relapse, overall and leukemia-free survival were significantly associated with disease status at transplantation.
  • Though leukemia recurrence was lowest after unrelated donor HCT in first clinical remission (CR), overall survival, and leukemia-free survival rates were similar after matched sibling and unrelated donor HCT, after adjustment for disease status.
  • Relapse, overall and leukemia-free survival did not differ by graft type (bone marrow v cord blood) or type of leukemia.
  • Three-year probabilities of leukemia-free survival were 49% and 54% after HLA-matched sibling and unrelated donor transplantation in first CR, respectively.
  • Corresponding rates for those with advanced leukemia were 20% and 30%.
  • CONCLUSION: Unrelated donor HCT should be considered for infants with acute leukemia in first CR using the same eligibility criteria as are currently used for those with HLA matched sibling donors.

  • However, the annual number of patients with leukemia who experience relapse after initial therapy remains greater than that of new cases of most childhood cancers.
  • In this review, we summarize recent pharmacogenomic studies related to the treatment of pediatric acute leukemia.
  • These strategies illustrate the promise of pharmacogenomics to further advance the treatment of human cancers, with childhood leukemia serving as a paradigm.

  • [Title] Acute leukemia in women.
  • The treatment and survival outcome of acute leukemia in women is generally similar to that of men.
  • However, acute leukemia in women poses additional challenges in clinical practice.
  • In addition to important precautions during therapy, such as prevention of abnormal uterine bleeding in premenopausal women and therapy during pregnancy, women who are survivors of acute leukemia face unique and potentially long-term health-related problems.
  • In this review, we address the aforementioned issues, as well as the various health and psychosocial challenges faced by women who survive childhood leukemia during their path to adulthood.
  • Finally, we address the issue of therapy-related acute leukemia in the category of women who are survivors of breast and ovarian cancer.

  • [Title] Myeloid-specific inactivation of p15Ink4b results in monocytosis and predisposition to myeloid leukemia.
  • Inactivation of p15INK4b, an inhibitor of cyclin-dependent kinases, through DNA methylation is one of the most common epigenetic abnormalities in myeloid leukemia.
  • Although this suggests a key role for this protein in myeloid disease suppression, experimental evidence to support this has not been reported.
  • To address whether this event is critical for premalignant myeloid disorders and leukemia development, mice were generated that have loss of p15Ink4b specifically in myeloid cells.
  • The p15Ink4b(fl/fl)-LysMcre mice develop nonreactive monocytosis in the peripheral blood accompanied by increased numbers of myeloid and monocytic cells in the bone marrow resembling the myeloproliferative form of chronic myelomonocytic leukemia.
  • Spontaneous progression from chronic disease to acute leukemia was not observed.
  • Nevertheless, MOL4070LTR retrovirus integrations provided cooperative genetic mutations resulting in a high frequency of myeloid leukemia in knockout mice.
  • Two common retrovirus insertion sites near c-myb and Sox4 genes were identified, and their transcript up-regulated in leukemia, suggesting a collaborative role of their protein products with p15Ink4b-deficiency in promoting malignant disease.
  • This new animal model demonstrates experimentally that p15Ink4b is a tumor suppressor for myeloid leukemia, and its loss may play an active role in the establishment of preleukemic conditions.

  • AIM: Study incidence and subtypes of BAL, correlate with age, morphology, and cytogenetic findings and correlate the clinico-hematological data with the treatment response.
  • MATERIAL AND METHODS: Diagnosis was based on WHO classification, including clinical details, morphology, cytochemistry, immunophenotyping, and molecular genetics.
  • We included those cases, which fulfilled the European Group for the Immunological Characterization of Acute Leukemia's (EGIL's) scoring system criteria for the diagnosis of BAL, as per recommendation of the WHO classification.
  • BCR ABL fusion positivity was a common cytogenetic abnormality (seven cases).
  • A comprehensive panel of reagents is required, including cytoplasmic markers; to diagnose BAL.
  • BCR-ABL expression is an important prognostic factor, as these cases will be labeled as Chronic myeloid leukemia (CML) in blast crisis with biphenotypic expression and treated accordingly.

  • [Title] [Immunologic classification used in typing of 68 cases of acute leukemias].
  • To evaluate the significance of immunologic classification for typing of acute leukemia (AL).
  • 68 cases of AL were classified by morphologic and immunologic typings.
  • The results showed that the consistency rate was 94.1% between morphology and immunology, and 4 morphologic misdiagnosed cases were corrected by immunology; CD13 and CD33 were special myeloid lineage-associated antigens; AML-M(3) was often CD34 low-expressed and HLA-DR-negative; CD14 was often expressed in AML-M(4) and M(5); lymphoid lineage-associated antigens (CD7) were easily found in ANLL, and myeloid lineage-associated antigens were also found in ALL.
  • In conclusion, immunologic classification can improve the accuracy in acute leukemia diagnosis.
  • The diagnosis of some special AL, such as acute unidentified leukemia (AUL), AML-M(0) and so on, must rely on immunologic classification.

  • The outcome of older patients with acute leukemia remains poor with few long-term survivors, indicating the need for treatment approaches that target pro-apoptotic pathways not influenced by chemotherapy resistance.
  • In the treatment of acute leukemia, NK cell-based therapies have focused on in vivo expansion and activation with cytokines with only modest success.
  • However, recent understanding of the importance of NK receptors for the recognition and lysis of leukemia cells suggests novel therapeutic strategies.
  • In this review, we discuss the biologic rationale for therapeutic strategies harnessing NK cells and focus on novel directions for their future use in elderly patients with acute leukemia.

  • [Title] Genomic analysis of acute leukemia.
  • Acute leukemia is the commonest childhood cancer and a major cause of morbidity from hematologic malignancies in adults.
  • Acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL) is commonest in children, and acute myeloid leukemia (AML) is more frequent in adults.
  • Apart from childhood ALL, the prognosis of acute leukemia is suboptimal, with many patients experiencing relapse, which carries a poor prognosis, or toxicities from nonspecific therapies.
  • Recent years have witnessed great interest in the application of high-resolution, genome wide approaches to the study of acute leukemia.
  • These studies have identified multiple novel genetic alterations targeting critical cellular pathways that contribute to leukemogenesis, including alterations of genes regulating lymphoid development, tumor suppressors, apoptosis regulators, and oncogenes.
  • These studies have also delineated novel genetic alterations that are associated with prognosis, and have demonstrated substantial evolution in patterns of genetic alterations from diagnosis to relapse, indicating that specific genetic changes determine resistance to therapy in ALL.
  • These studies have demonstrated the power of genome-wide approaches to identify new lesions in acute leukemia, and suggest that ongoing genomic analyses, including deep resequencing and epigenetic analysis, will continue to yield novel, clinically relevant insights into the pathogenesis of this disease.

  • OBJECTIVE: The purpose of this study was to evaluate the flow cytometric staining patterns of 3 commercial monoclonal antibodies for monocytes and granulocytes in clinically healthy dogs and in dogs with acute myeloid leukemia (AML).
  • A diagnosis of acute leukemia was confirmed by >30% blasts in bone marrow or >30% blasts in peripheral blood, together with bi- or pancytopenia, circulating CD34-positive blast cells, and clinical signs of disease.
  • RESULTS: MAC387 stained neutrophils and monocytes from control dogs, although the staining profiles for the 2 cell types differed.
  • One case was classified as AML of granulocytic lineage (AML-M1), 6 cases were classified as acute monocytic leukemia (AML-M5), and 1 case was classified as acute myelomonocytic leukemia (AML-M4).
  • In the dog with AML-M4 variable percentages of blast cells were positive for CD14, MPO, MAC387, CD4, and NSA.
  • These 3 antibodies may be useful as part of a wider panel for immunophenotyping AML in dogs.

  • To improve the results in the treatment of adult acute lymphoblastic leukemia patients, different strategies have been proposed.
  • The Leucemie Aigue Lymphoblastique Paris-Ouest-France (LALPOF) protocol proposed alloBMT with standard conditioning after a classic induction and intensified consolidation scheme; the Groupe Ouest Est des Leucemies Aigues Lymphoblastiques (GOLEAL1) protocol tested an intensified induction and consolidation course before alloBMT with a reinforced conditioning regimen.
  • The 4-year disease-free survival reached 75% +/- 11% in the LALPOF study and 69% +/- 13% in the GOELAL1 study ( P = .30).
  • For adult acute lymphoblastic leukemia patients in first remission, the intensification of chemotherapy before a reinforced conditioning regimen before alloBMT may lead to an increased toxic death rate.

  • Biomarkers provide certain values for diagnosis, monitor treatment efficacy, or for the development of novel therapeutic approach for particular diseases.
  • Thus, the identification of specific of biomarkers for specific medical problems, including malignant diseases may be valuable in medical practice.
  • In the study, we have used the Wilms' tumor gene (WT1) as a biomarker to evaluate its expression in local adult patients with newly diagnosed acute leukemia, including both acute myeloid and lymphoid leukemias (AML and ALL).
  • AIM: To investigate WT1 gene expression in adult patients with acute leukemia at diagnosis.
  • METHODS: Eighteen patients with acute leukemia diagnosed at Singapore General Hospital, Singapore, between September, 2004 and July, 2005 were included in this study.
  • RESULTS: WT1 gene was exclusively expressed in all eighteen, including three ALL and fifteen AML, patients.
  • CONCLUSIONS: WT1 gene expression was observed in local patients with acute leukemia at diagnosis.
  • It may be used as a potential molecular marker for diagnosis, clinical progression of the diseases or monitoring the response to treatment, as well as a target for the development of novel therapeutic approaches.

  • [Title] [The methylation pattern of LRP15 gene in acute leukemia].
  • OBJECTIVE: To investigate the methylation status of LRP15 gene in acute leukemia (AL) and its role in tumorigenesis.
  • METHODS: 73 cases of AL and 9 healthy subjects as well as COS7, K562 and HL60 cell lines were studied with methylation specific PCR (MSP).
  • In nearly all of the French-American-British leukemia subtypes, we found that the frequency of LRP15 methylation was 71.2% (52/73) of AL and none in the 9 healthy subjects.
  • CONCLUSION: LRP15 methylation change is a common abnormality in leukemia and LRP15 is postulated to be a tumor suppressor gene.

  • [Title] [Aberrant immunophenotypes in 126 patients with acute leukemia].
  • The existence of leukemia aberrant immunophenotypes (LAIP) has been suggested to be a valuable tool for the detection of minimal residual disease (MRD), as they could distinguish leukemic cells from normal hematopoietic progenitors.
  • This study was purposed to analyze the characteristics of LAIP in acute leukemia and further explore the proportion of different types of LAIP in acute leukemia patients.
  • Flow cytometry (FCM) with four color and CD45/SSC gating were used to detect the antigen expression in samples of bone marrow from 126 patients with acute leukemia.
  • It is concluded that the LAIP with four subgroups can be detected in the majority of patients with acute leukemia and immunophenotyping based on LAIP is applicable for the detection of MRD.

  • [Title] Infant acute bilineal leukemia.
  • Most cases of acute leukemia can be assigned to the myeloid, B or T lineage.
  • There are rare cases of acute leukemia, which cannot be clearly classified, because either blasts express antigens of more than one lineage (acute biphenotypic leukemias) or distinct blast populations of two lineages co-exist (acute bilineal leukemias, aBLL).
  • We present a 10-month-old infant with de novo aBLL, characterized by blasts of monocytic and B-cell precursor lineages.
  • Despite poor initial response, both to acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL) induction treatment and acute myeloid leukemia induction blocks, the child reached complete clinical remission with minimal residual disease negative status and was transplanted.
  • This case report illustrates that aBLL is a very aggressive type of acute leukemia that should be individually treated and monitored, particularly in children less than 1 year of age.

  • OBSERVATION: We report a case of a 42-year-old women presenting with loss of vision caused by serous macular detachment.
  • The investigations showed the diagnosis of acute lymphoblastic leukemia.
  • DISCUSSION: Ocular involvement is seen in 28%-80% of leukemia cases.
  • Serous detachment of the neuroepithelium is seldom reported, and can be the first symptom of the disease.
  • CONCLUSION: Ocular manifestations of leukemia are frequent but rarely reveal the disease.
  • However, the diagnosis of leukemia should be considered in case of pigmentary epithelium involvement.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • [Title] Bleeding and thrombosis in acute leukemia: what does the future of therapy look like?
  • Bleeding and thrombosis are major risk factors for early death in patients with acute leukemia; chemotherapy increases the likelihood of both of these complications.
  • Patients with acute leukemia often present with a hypercoagulable state or with evidence for chronic disseminated intravascular coagulation, even in the absence of active thrombosis and/or bleeding.
  • Leukemic cell procoagulant properties, cytotoxic therapies, and concomitant infections are major determinants of clotting activation in acute leukemia.
  • All-trans retinoic acid has greatly improved the management of acute promyelocytic leukemia, but has not significantly changed the rate of early hemorrhagic deaths and may actually promote thrombosis.
  • Randomized, controlled trials of different prophylactic regimens to prevent thrombosis and/or bleeding in acute leukemia are urgently needed, particularly in patients with acute promyelocytic leukemia.
  • Anticoagulant therapy is a unique challenge in patients with acute leukemia, who are at high risk for hemorrhage.
  • Although no guidelines are available for prophylaxis or treatment of thrombosis, extrapolation can be made from existing guidelines for management of patients with other malignancies prolonged periods of treatment-induced thrombocytopenia in patients with acute leukemia, however, require a more judicious application of standard anticoagulant approaches.

  • [Title] [Expression and clinical significance of PTTG and b-FGF in acute leukemia].
  • To investigate the expression of pituitary tumor-transforming gene (PTTG) and basic fibroblast growth factor (b-FGF) in acute leukemia, as well as the relationship of their expression with prognosis in acute leukemia, expressions of PTTG and b-FGF in acute leukemia (AL) specimens were detected by immunocytochemical technique.
  • In AL group, after chemotherapy, the expression of PTTG and b-FGF in de novo patients group was higher than in the complete remission patient group significantly (P < 0.01).
  • It is concluded that Up-regulation of PTTG and b-FGF expression may be involved in the progression of acute leukemia and correlated closely with therapeutic effect.
  • Associated detection of PTTG and b-FGF may help to judge the malignancy degree and prognosis of acute leukemia.

  • [Title] Current status of diagnosis and prognosis of infant acute leukemia in China.
  • OBJECTIVE: Treatment and outcome of infant acute leukemia (IAL) in developed countries have been well documented.
  • However, reports summarizing diagnosis and outcome of IAL in developing countries are limited.
  • METHODS: Five hundred ninety seven pediatric patients were diagnosed with acute leukemia in our hospital between January 1997 and June 2008, of which 19 were younger than 12 months.
  • RESULTS: Of the 19 cases, 14 had acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL) and 5 had acute myeloid leukemia (AML) based on FAB classification.
  • Combining our data with those from Chinese literature, less than one third of the infants had immunophenotypic and genetic verification of leukemia and 29% (18/63) of them received treatment.
