3. Burke LP, Kukoly CA: Statins induce lethal effects in acute myeloblastic leukemia [corrected] cells within 72 hours. Leuk Lymphoma; 2008 Feb;49(2):322-30

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • [Title] Statins induce lethal effects in acute myeloblastic leukemia [corrected] cells within 72 hours.
  • HMG-CoA Reductase inhibitors (statins) induce apoptosis in acute myeloid leukemia (AML) cells in vitro; however, the concentrations associated with cell death in AML cells are higher than those clinically tolerated during prolonged therapy.
  • We therefore wished to determine whether short exposures to lovastatin might induce cell death in AML cells at clinically attainable concentrations.
  • The time and concentration dependence of HL60 and U937 cells was determined and showed that cell death was delayed.
  • IC(50) values and IC(90) values determined on day 6 suggested that the sensitivity of AML cells to statins may occur at lower concentrations than previously reported.
  • After 72 h, mevalonate did not rescue AML cells from cytotoxic concentrations of statins, suggesting that, although cell death was delayed, lovastatin induced lethal effects within 72 h.
  • In conjunction with previously reported Phase I studies, the data presented here suggest that the high-dose, short course statins may be useful for the treatment of patients with AML.

  • [Title] Increase in Ara-C cytotoxicity in the presence of valproate, a histone deacetylase inhibitor, is associated with the concurrent expression of cyclin D1 and p27(Kip 1) in acute myeloblastic leukemia cells.
  • The effects of valproate and butyrate were investigated in an acute myeloblastic cell line (OCI/AML-2) on cytotoxicity, cell cycle profile and expression of cell cycle regulating proteins in the presence of cytarabine (Ara-C) and etoposide.
  • As a single agent valproate and butyrate inhibited AML cell growth but did not significantly induce cell death.
  • A dramatic increase in cytotoxicity was observed when combining valproate or butyrate with Ara-C, whereas, co-addition of them with etoposide had much smaller effect on cell death.
  • In addition, valporate was able to block the Ara-C-induced down-regulation of p27(Kip1) expression but not that induced by etoposide.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • [Title] Improvements in survival of adults diagnosed with acute myeloblastic leukemia in the early 21st century.
  • Treatment of adults with acute myeloblastic leukemia has changed substantially over the past two decades.
  • Currently available estimates of survival do not reflect results from present state-of-the-art treatment due to a lag between the availability of new treatments and data concerning their effect on survival on the population level when traditional cohort analysis is used.
  • We estimated trends in age-specific 5- and 10-year relative survival of acute myeloblastic leukemia patients aged over 15 years old for 5-year calendar periods from 1980-1984 through 2000-2004 using data from the Surveillance, Epidemiology, and End Results Program.
  • Our period analysis reveals major improvement on the population level in long-term prognosis of younger patients with acute myeloblastic leukemia, most likely explained by multiple incremental improvements in care including better and more specific diagnosis, improvements in and extension of the use of stem cell transplantation and high dose therapy, and improved supportive care.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • [Title] Mutation analysis of SBDS in pediatric acute myeloblastic leukemia.
  • BACKGROUND: Shwachman-Diamond syndrome (SDS) is associated with a high risk of myelodysplasia, acute myeloid leukemia (AML), and chromosome 7 abnormalities.
  • Herein, we studied the role of genetic alterations in SBDS in AML.
  • PROCEDURE: DNA was extracted from marrows of SDS patients with AML, as well as from children with de novo AML.
  • To study whether SBDS heterozygosity confers a risk for MDS/AML, data on family members of SDS patients on the Canadian Inherited Marrow Failure Registry (CIMFR) was analyzed.
  • RESULTS: Of two SDS patients with SDS/AML one was homozygous 258 + 2T > C, and one was compound heterozygous 183-184TA > CT/258 + 2T > C.
  • To determine whether a subset of patients with SDS can present with AML, we analyzed 48 AML samples at remission, but no mutations were identified.
  • To address whether acquired mutated SBDS gene is associated with leukemic transformation in de novo AML, we analyzed 77 AML samples at diagnosis or relapse (4 with -7 and 7q-) for SBDS mutations; no alterations were detected.
  • Also, among the relatives of an SDS patient cohort on the registry no cases of MDS/AML were reported.
  • CONCLUSIONS: Common mutations occurred in our SDS patients who develop AML, and thus, AML is not confined to a rare genetic subgroup of SDS.
  • Newly diagnosed patients with AML are unlikely to have an underlying undiagnosed SDS.
  • Acquired SBDS gene mutations also would appear unlikely to play a mechanistic role in de novo AML, and might not be involved in the pathogenesis of chromosome 7 abnormalities as well.

J Clin Oncol; 2009 May 20;27(15_suppl):7062

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • [Title] Updated remission duration and survival results of single-agent clofarabine in previously untreated older adult patients with acute myelogenous leukemia (AML) unlikely to benefit from standard induction chemotherapy due to unfavorable baseline risk factor(s).
  • We now report updated duration of remission (DOR), disease-free survival (DFS), and overall survival (OS).
  • METHODS: Single arm, multi-center, phase II, open-label, 2-stage study of patients with untreated AML, ≥60 years old, and at least one adverse prognostic factor: age ≥70 years, antecedent hematologic disorder (AHD), PS = 2, and/or intermediate/unfavorable risk karyotype.
  • Clofarabine (CLO) administered days 1-5 at 30 mg/m<sup>2</sup> during induction and 20 mg/m<sup>2</sup> during re-induction/consolidation for maximum 6 cycles.
  • Median DOR (censored at alternative therapy) for CR/CRp was 56 weeks (95% CI, 33 weeks - not yet estimable [n/e]) and for CR 65 weeks (95% CI, 41 weeks - n/e).
  • Median DFS (not censored at alternative therapy) for CR/CRp was 34 weeks (95% CI, 24 - 65 weeks).
  • CONCLUSIONS: These data expand on the previously reported efficacy and safety data of single agent CLO in adult AML.
  • These results suggest that single agent CLO is an effective and tolerable treatment option for older adult patients with untreated AML and 1 or more unfavorable baseline prognostic factor(s).

  • [Title] Targeted immunotherapy in acute myeloblastic leukemia: from animals to humans.
  • Immunity against acute myeloid leukemia (AML) is demonstrated in humans by the graft-versus-leukemia effect in allogeneic hematopoietic stem cell transplantation.
  • However, due to the fact that leukemic blasts develop various escape mechanisms, antileukemic specific immunity is not able to control leukemic cell proliferation.
  • The aim of immunotherapy is to overcome tolerance and boost immunity to elicit an efficient immune response against leukemia.
  • We review different immunotherapy strategies tested in preclinical animal models of AML and the human trials that spurred from encouraging results obtained in animal models, demonstrate the feasibility of immunotherapy in AML patients.

  • [Title] Efficacy of a novel schedule of decitabine in previously untreated AML, age 60 or older.
  • : 7010 Background: We established an optimal daily dose of decitabine in AML at 20mg/m<sup>2</sup>/day based on re-expression of epigenetically silenced genes, with promising clinical activity seen in poor risk older patients (pts) (Blum, J Clin Oncol. 2007).
  • METHODS: We designed a phase II study of decitabine for untreated AML pts of age≥60 who were not candidates for intensive chemotherapy (or who refused it).
  • Pts with persistent AML at the end of a cycle received a repeat of the 10 day course, but responding pts received maintenance with abbreviated courses of 3-5 days depending on degree and duration of neutropenia.
  • 15 pts had either secondary or t-AML.
  • 31/33 pts had at least 2 poor-risk factors of age ≥70, antecedent hematologic disorder, unfavorable karyotype, or ECOG 2, and 28/33 had HCT-CI scores of ≥2.
  • CR occurred in all subsets of disease and cytogenetic risk groups.
  • Median OS has not been reached; median f/u of 19 surviving pts is 8 months.
  • Though non-hematologic toxicities were infrequent, infection and/or febrile neutropenia were common (in 24/33 pts).

  • [Title] Comorbidity description using the hematopoietic cell transplantation-specific comorbidity index (HCT-CI) in elderly de novo poor-risk AML patients (pts) treated with laromustine.
  • : 7050 Background: Treatment of older pts with AML is often complicated by comorbidities and pts with comorbidities are often underrepresented in clinical trials.
  • The HCT-CI, which was developed in pts receiving allogeneic SCT, has been applied to pts receiving induction therapy for AML in an effort to assist in therapeutic and investigational decisions (Kantarjian 2006; Etienne 2007; Giles 2007).
  • HCT-CI scores have been shown to be predictive of early death and survival in pts ≥ 60 years receiving induction therapy for AML, with early death rates of 3%, 11%, and 29% for pts with HCT-CI scores of 0, 1-2, and ≥ 3, respectively (Giles 2007).
  • METHODS: 140 pts age ≥ 60 with poor risk de novo AML from two phase II studies were scored for comorbidity by HCT-CI.
  • CONCLUSIONS: The majority (81%) of these older poor risk AML pts treated with laromustine had a HCT-CI score ≥ 3, confirming the poor risk nature of this patient group.
  • The induction death rate for pts treated with laromustine and with HCT-CI score ≥ 3 was lower than that reported for a group of pts with HCT-CI score ≥ 3 treated with standard induction chemotherapy (14% vs 29%; Giles 2007).

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • [Title] A safety and schedule seeking trial of Bcl-2 inhibitor obatoclax in previously untreated older patients with acute myeloid leukemia (AML).
  • : 3579 Background: Obatoclax (Ob) is a small-molecule inhibitor of all Bcl-2 prosurvival proteins.
  • In a previous study a 70 year old patient with untreated AML had a cytogenetic CR 8 days after receiving 20 mg/m<sup>2</sup> of Ob over 24 hrs.
  • This study evaluated the single-agent response rate in older patients with previously untreated AML.
  • Eligibility criteria included age ≥ 70, untreated AML (1 prior Rx allowed in Safety phase), ECOG PS ≤2, adequate renal and hepatic function.
  • Efficacy data after C2 show that 3 patients in the 20 mg 3-hr infusion cohort in the Safety phase and 1 at the same dose & schedule in the Schedule Seeking phase had ≥50% decrease in BM blasts after C2, which was not seen in the 60 mg 24-hr infusion cohort.
  • CONCLUSIONS: MTD for Ob as a 3-hr infusion administered in older patients with AML on 3 consecutive days is 20 mg/day, and both this regimen and 60 mg as a 24-hr infusion x 3 days were well tolerated.
  • Evidence of biological activity was seen with the 3-hr infusion schedule but not with the 24-hr infusion schedule, suggesting that efficacy may be improved with the 3-hr infusion schedule and may be related to PK differences.

24. Bloomfield CD: Importance of genetic heterogeneity in curing adult acute leukemia (AL). J Clin Oncol; 2009 May 20;27(15_suppl):s1

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • [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.
  • During the next 15-20 years the importance of cytogenetics in dissecting ALL and AML into entities requiring different therapies became widely accepted, resulting in 2001 in their first incorporation into the World Health Organization (WHO) classification of AL.
  • 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%.
  • Recent discovery of the adverse impact of KIT mutations in CBF AML may allow the addition of tyrosine kinase inhibitors to HiDAC to substantially further increase cure.
  • 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.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • : 10043 Background: We previously identified the importance of intact apoptosis signaling for treatment response in pediatric ALL and AML by analyzing two key apoptogenic events, caspase-3 activation and cytochrome c release.
  • Using a NOD/SCID mouse model for pediatric BCP-ALL we found that short time from transplant to overt leukemia in the recipient mice (short time to leukemia, TTLshort) determines poor patient outcome.
  • METHODS: In this study we investigated the importance of deficient apoptosis signaling for leukemia engraftment in this model.
  • CONCLUSIONS: Our finding in the NOD/SCID/huALL model matches our results in pediatric ALL and AML to conclude that the functional integrity of a downstream apoptotic checkpoint is an important feature regulating leukemia biology.
  • Thus, deficient apoptosis signaling appears to determine rapid engraftment of leukemia cells in the NOD/SCID model in vivo and consequently poor patient outcome.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • [Title] Identification by FISH of 4 novel partner loci of PRDM16 in myeloid malignancies.
  • : 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.
  • This overexpression might play an important role in the pathogenesis of MDS and AML in blocking myeloid differentiation.
  • 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.
  • RESULTS: In addition to the known t(1;3)(p36;q21) (11 cases) and t(1;21)(p36;q22) (1 case) involving RPN1 andAML1/RUNX1 respectively in myeloid malignancies, we specifically found PRDM16 to be rearranged in 4 additional translocations : a t(1;12)(p36;p13) in an AML-M4, a t(1;7)(p36;p12) in a MDS, an add(1)(p36) in an AML-M2 and a t(1;2)(p36;p12) in a relapsed AML-M4.
  • We identified the respective candidate partner loci : TEL/ETV6, IKZF1, CDH4 and a non-coding unknown sequence.
  • CONCLUSIONS: In our series of 50 cases of hematological malignancies with 1p36 abnormalities, PRDM16 was involved in about 45% of myeloid malignancies, and was never involved in lymphoid malignancies.
  • PRDM16 is supposed to have similar oncogenic properties as MDS1/EVI-1(3q26), another gene encoding for a zinc finger protein and acting as a transcriptional regulatory factor with 2 isoforms.
  • 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.
  • Further characterization of these new partner genes and functional studies should give us more insight into the pathogenesis of AML and MDS mediated by PRDM16, and the role of its partner genes.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • [Title] Incidence and prognostic importance of molecular genetic defects in children with acute myeloblastic leukemia.
  • INTRODUCTION: Acute myeloblastic leukemia (AML) accounts for 15 to 25 percent of childhood acute leukemias.
  • The most common genetic abnormalities seen in pediatric AML patients are AML1-ETO, PML-RARα and CBFB-MYH11 genes resulting in t(8;21), t(15;17) and inv(16).
  • These genetic defects are seen in approximately 20-25% of AML patients.
  • OBJECTIVE: We investigated in this study, incidence and prognostic significance of the AML1-ETO, PML-RARα and CBFB-MYH11 genes in children with AML.
  • MATERIALS AND METHODS: The authors analyzed 34 children with AML using the real time-polymerase chain reaction for AML1-ETO, PML-RARα and CBFB-MYH11 genes.
  • CONCLUSION: It was concluded that t(15;17), t(8;21) and inv(16) impact on disease prognosis positively, but comprehensive studies with larger patient series are now needed for confirmation.

  • [Title] Oncogenic potential of the transcription factor LYL1 in acute myeloblastic leukemia.
  • The LYL1 gene encodes a basic helix-loop-helix transcription factor involved in T-cell acute lymphoblastic leukemia.
  • Using real-time quantitative RT-PCR assay, we found that the expression of LYL1 was at higher levels in the majority cases of acute myeloblastic leukemia (AML) or myelodysplastic syndrome when compared to normal bone marrow.
  • Our study also showed that LYL1 was highly expressed in most AML cell lines and in CD34+ AML cells.
  • To determine whether LYL1 had an affect on the phenotype and behavior of myeloid cells, we introduced full-length LYL1 cDNA into K562 cells using electroporation and U937 cells with retroviral infection.
  • Both of the derivative cell lines with overexpression of LYL1 had an increased growth rate and clonogenecity.
  • Forced expression of LYL1 in K562 cells enhanced spontaneous and hemin-induced erythroid differentiation but blocked spontaneous as well as PMA-induced megakaryocytic differentiation.
  • These results demonstrate that LYL1 may play a role in early hematopoiesis and may be a potential oncogenic factor in AML.

  • BACKGROUND: Wnt molecules play a key role in growth, proliferation and development of some embryonic and adult organs as well as hematopoietic stem cells.
  • OBJECTIVE: To investigate the expression profile of a large number of Wnt genes in leukemic cells from Iranian patients with acute myeloblastic leukemia.
  • METHODS: RT-PCR method was used to determine the Wnt genes expression in bone marrow (BM) and/or peripheral blood (PB) samples from 16 patients with AML and PB samples of 36 normal subjects.
  • RESULTS: Among 14 Wnt molecules included in this study, Wnt-7A and Wnt-10A were significantly down-regulated (p = 0.002 and p < 0.0001, respectively) and Wnt-3 was significantly over-expressed (p < 0.02) in AML patients compared to normal subjects.
  • No significant association was found between Wnt expression and FAB classification of the patients.
  • CONCLUSION: Our results demonstrated for the first time aberrant expression of Wnt-7A, Wnt-10A and Wnt-3 genes in Iranian AML patients.

  • [Title] Expected long-term survival of patients diagnosed with acute myeloblastic leukemia during 2006-2010.
  • BACKGROUND: Treatment of acute myeloblastic leukemia (AML) has evolved over the past several decades.
  • Therefore, currently available estimates of long-term survival, which are based on survival for patients treated with potentially now obsolete protocols, may not pertain to patients currently diagnosed.
  • METHODS: Using data from the 1973-2005 database of the Surveillance, Epidemiology, and End Results Program, we empirically validated a novel model-based method to project 5- and 10-year relative survival of AML patients and we applied the method to project relative survival of AML patients in the United States diagnosed during 2006-2010.
  • CONCLUSION: Patients diagnosed with AML during 2006-2010 at younger ages have much higher long-term survival expectations than indicated by previously available survival statistics.

  • [Title] Phase I/II study of idarubicin (Ida), high-dose ara-C, and sorafenib (S) in patients (pts) younger than 65 years with acute myeloid leukemia (AML).
  • It selectively induces apoptosis in FLT3-mutant human AML cell lines at nM concentrations.
  • METHODS: Objectives of this study are to determine the tolerability and efficacy of combination of S with chemotherapy.
  • In the phase I part, pts with relapsed AML were treated with escalating doses of S (400 mg qod, 400 mg daily, 400 mg bid) for 7 days during induction, and 400 mg bid was established as safe.
  • RESULTS: 10 pts (median age 34, range 21-58) with relapsed AML (median prior therapy 2, range 1-6) were treated in the phase I .
  • 5 pts have relapsed; median CR duration has not been reached, (range; 0.2+ - 10.6+ mo).
  • CONCLUSIONS: S can be safely combined with IA; it has a high CR rate in frontline therapy of younger pts with AML, in particular those with FLT3 mutations.
  • Correlative studies confirm potent activity of S against FLT3 signaling.

  • [Title] Reduced intensity conditioning prior to allogeneic stem cell transplantation for patients with acute myeloblastic leukemia as a first-line treatment.
  • BACKGROUND: Thirty-three patients (median age 52; range 26-60) with acute myeloblastic leukemia (AML) were included in a pilot study of allogeneic stem cell transplantation (Allo-SCT) following a reduced-intensity conditioning (RIC).
  • RESULTS: All patients engrafted had cumulative incidences of Gluksberg System Grade 2 acute and chronic graft-versus-host-disease (GVHD) of 24 (9-39%) and 64 (48-80%), respectively.
  • With a median follow-up of 18 months (range 7-52) after Allo-SCT, 26 patients are alive, of whom 24 remained in CR1 for a 2-year overall survival and leukemia-free survival (LFS) probabilities of 79 (range 61-90%) and 76 (range 59-87%), respectively.
  • CONCLUSIONS: We conclude that the sequential combination of intensive chemotherapy and allogeneic immunotherapy might offer relatively low NRD and leukemia relapse rates even in high-risk patients.

  • [Title] Two cases of extramedullary myeloid tumor in patients with continuous remission of acute myeloblastic leukemia.
  • Myeloid sarcoma is described as tumor mass consisting of myeloblasts or immature myeloid cells, involving extramedullary tissues.
  • It can be initial manifestation of myeloproliferative disorders or relapse of previously treated acute myeloblastic leukemia (AML).
  • We present two patients, one with AML-M2 and the other with acute promyelocytic leukemia (APL)-M3.
  • After remission induced by conventional chemotherapy, which continued for 3 and 10 years respectively, a myeloid sarcoma was diagnosed.
  • Biopsy of a retroauricular tumor formation was made in the first case.
  • The second one was diagnozed after biopsy of a supraclavicular lymph node.
  • Two years after the diagnosis of myeloid sarcoma the patient died of haemorrhagic stroke.
  • The patient with AML-M2 continued treatment with polychemotherapy.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • OBJECTIVE: A case series of gliomas treated with alkylator-based chemotherapy who subsequently developed myelodysplastic syndrome (tMDS) or acute myelocytic leukemia (AML).
  • The diagnosis of tMDS was determined by bone marrow biopsy in seven patients.
  • Three patients were diagnosed with AML as well (in two determined by bone marrow and one at autopsy).
  • Interval from last chemotherapy exposure to diagnosis of tMDS/AML ranged from 3 months to 31 months (median 24 months).
  • Five patients have died, two as a consequence of recurrent brain tumor, one as a complication of transplantation, and due due to AML.
  • CONCLUSIONS: Although rare, induction of tMDS/AML following extended use of alkylator-based chemotherapy may become more relevant with the evolving practice to treat gliomas for protracted periods.

  • [Title] High efficacy and safety profile of fractionated doses of Mylotarg as induction therapy in patients with relapsed acute myeloblastic leukemia: a prospective study of the alfa group.
  • Pivotal phase II studies in acute myeloblastic leukemia (AML) patients in first relapse have used gemtuzumab ozogamicin (GO) (Mylotarg) at a dose of 9 mg/m(2) on days 1 and 14.
  • These studies showed a 26% response rate (13% complete remission (CR) and 13% CRp (complete remission with incomplete platelet recovery)) but with high degree of hematological and liver toxicities.
  • Based on in vitro studies showing a re-expression of CD33 antigenic sites on the cell surface of blasts cells after exposure to GO, we hypothesized that fractionated doses of GO may be efficient and better tolerated.
  • Fifty-seven patients with AML in first relapse received GO at a dose of 3 mg/m(2) on days 1, 4 and 7 for one course.
  • No grade 3 or 4 liver toxicity was observed.
  • No veno-occlusive disease occurred after GO or after hematopoietic stem cell transplantation given after GO in seven patients.

  • Reciprocal translocations involving the long arm of chromosome 7 are relatively rare cytogenetic aberrations in myelodysplastic syndrome (MDS) and acute myeloblastic leukemia (AML).
  • A 44-year-old woman was initially given a diagnosis of de novo AML M6A with a normal karyotype.
  • Because the same translocation reappeared and sustained for more than 8 months after second stem cell transplantation, we revised the diagnosis as therapy-related MDS after allogeneic transplantation.
  • Considering two other such reported cases of AML, the t(7;9)(q22;q34) may be a novel recurrent translocation in myeloid malignancies.

  • : 9524 Background: To evaluate the risk of AML/MDS and overall mortality in patients receiving CT ± G-CSF, a meta-analysis of RCTs were conducted.
  • Eligibility included RCTs of solid tumor or lymphoma patients randomized to CT ± primary G-CSF support, ≥2 years follow-up and reporting AML/MDS or all second malignancies.
  • Pre-specified study categories included: a)same dose/schedule, b)dose-dense or c)dose-escalated CT.
  • Primary outcomes were AML/MDS and mortality.
  • RR for AML/MDS with CT+G-CSF compared to control was 1.92 [P=.006] with ARD increase of 0.4% [P=.008].
  • RR for AML/MDS in study categories to receive the same, dose-dense or dose-escalated CT+G-CSF were 1.95 [P=.346], 1.20 [P=.666] and 2.47 [P=.006], respectively.
  • No differences in estimates of AML/MDS or mortality were observed between industry and non-industry-funded studies.
  • CONCLUSIONS: Risk of AML/MDS is increased with dose escalated CT+G-CSF.
  • Dose-dense regimens are associated with the greatest RR reduction in mortality and lowest risk of AML/MDS.
  • Further research is needed to differentiate any impact of G-CSF on the risk of AML/MDS from that due to increased CT intensity.

  • [Title] A phase II study with CP-4055 in patients with second salvage AML.
  • : 7047 Background: CP-4055 (cytarabine 5'-elaidic acid ester) is a novel derivative of cytarabine, independent of nucleoside transporters to enter the cell.
  • The aim of this study was to assess efficacy and safety of CP-4055 when given as second salvage therapy to patients (pts) with acute myeloid leukemia (AML).
  • METHODS: Adult pts who received two previous chemotherapy regimens and who had refractory/relapsed AML (CR after first salvage therapy lasting less than 6 months) were enrolled.
  • 6 pts had previous transplant, the majority of the pts had previous ara-C based therapy, 12 pts had not obtained CR1 or CR2.
  • Only 1 pt did not receive d1-5 dosing.
  • Most frequently reported related AE ≥ grade 3 (CTCAE v3.0) were myelosuppression, abdominal pain, colitis, diarrhoea, nausea, fatigue, liver function test (LFT) elevation.
  • Clinical activity (IWG criteria for AML), 2 CR (1 with no CR1 or CR2), and 1 CRp (CR rate 15%), were reported.
  • CONCLUSIONS: CP-4055 given as second salvage therapy to AML pts show manageable toxicity when administered at 2,000 mg/m<sup>2</sup>/d, 24 h CIV, in a d1-5 q3w schedule.
  • Clinical activity (2 CR and 1 CRp) has been reported among the first 20 late stage AML pts.

  • AS1411 has synergistic effects in combination with cytarabine on AML cell lines in vitro and in vivo.
  • METHODS: This open-label randomized phase II trial compared AS1411 plus high-dose cytarabine (HiDAC) with HiDAC alone in patients with primary refractory or relapsed AML who had received up to 3 previous lines of chemotherapy.
  • CONCLUSIONS: Data from this first phase II trial of an aptamer in oncology are encouraging.
  • The combination of AS1411 at 10 or 40 mg/kg/day with HiDAC appears well tolerated and shows promising signs of activity in patients with relapsed/refractory AML.

  • [Title] Promoter DNA methylation of CD10 in infant acute lymphoblastic leukemia with MLL/AF4 fusion gene.
  • While CD10 negativity reflects an earlier stage of B-cell development, complete IgH gene rearrangements (VDJ<sub>H</sub>) show more mature IgH status.
  • METHODS: CD10-negative infant ALL with MLL/AF4, CD10-positive infant ALL with germ-line MLL, CD10-positive pre-B ALL cell line, infant AML (M5) with MLL/AF9 and pediatric AML (M2) with AML1/ETO were analyzed for VDJ<sub>H</sub> status and methylation of CD10 gene promoters.
  • In contrast, none or a few of the CpG dinucleotides were methylated in the CD10-positive ALL, AML (M5) with MLL/AF9 or AML (M2) with AML1/ETO.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • : 2053 Background: Secondary acute myeloid leukemia (AML) is reported to occur in 3%-10% of patients treated with alkylating agents for Hodgkin's lymphoma, non-Hodgkin's lymphoma, ovarian cancer, breast cancer, and multiple myeloma.
  • The incidence of secondary AML is greatest at 5-10 years after treatment, and AML often follows myelodysplastic syndrome (MDS).
  • Among these patients, we identified 140 cases that we labeled as major hematologic adverse events: agranulocytosis (8 cases), aplasia (42), aplastic anemia (52), leukemia (26), MDS (6), and lymphoma (6).
  • Risk of leukemia/MDS from our review may also be significant, but length of follow-up is insufficient and the real risk is likely still unknown.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • METHODS: We investigated the outcomes of pts with RI and MDS, chronic myelomonocytic leukemia (CMML), or acute myeloid leukemia (AML) receiving therapy with HA.
  • We used the International Working Group criteria to evaluate the response rates.
  • RESULTS: Forty-two pts with sCr ≥ 1.5 mg/dL (including 17 with MDS, 16 with AML, and 9 with CMML) were treated with DAC or 5AZA alone or in combination with other agents (primarily histone deacetylase inhibitors).
  • The incidence of complications, DA, and the response rate were not significantly different for pts with sCr > 2.0 mg/dL.
  • CONCLUSIONS: The use of HA is well tolerated in pts with MDS and AML and RI who achieved comparable OR rates to those without RI.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • [Title] Prognostic value of FLT3 mutations among different cytogenetic subgroups in acute myeloid leukemia (AML).
  • : 7015 Background: Mutations of the FLT3 gene (in special internal tandem duplication -ITD) are common in normal karyotype AML (NK-AML) and are associated with shorter relapse free and overall survival (OS).
  • METHODS: The records of patients (pts) with newly diagnosed AML (from 2003 to 2007) were reviewed.
  • A Cox model was fit for OS, and non-significant variables were eliminated in a step-down fashion with a p- value cut-off of p = .10.
  • No difference was found in median OS between FLT3-mutated and FLT3- wild type pts in the good risk group (not reached (NR) vs NR, P = 0.57) nor in the poor risk group (55 vs 24 weeks, P = 0.44).
  • In intermediate risk, OS was worse in FLT3-ITD positive pts (33 vs 89 weeks, P < 0.0001) but not in FLT3-TKD positive pts (77 vs 70 weeks, P = 0.89).
  • CONCLUSIONS: In our cohort of pts, FLT3 mutations did not have a prognostic impact in AML with good and poor risk karyotype.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • [Title] Etoposide and mitoxantrone in newly diagnosed acute myeloid leukemia patients with persistent leukemia after a course of induction therapy with cytarabine and idarubicin.
  • : 7073 Background: The goal of induction chemotherapy in acute myeloid leukemia (AML) is complete remission with restoration of normal bone marrow.
  • If residual leukemia is present after the first course of induction therapy, patients receive a second course identical to the first or receive a non-cross resistant antileukemic regimen.
  • METHODS: In a retrospective study of adult patients with newly-diagnosed AML treated at the University of Pittsburgh Cancer Institute between December 2002 and May 2008, we evaluated the efficacy and toxicity of mitoxantrone (10 mg/m<sup>2</sup>/d) and etoposide (100 mg/m<sup>2</sup>/d), both administered intravenously within 5 days as second course therapy of patients not responding to first-course induction therapy with cytarabine and idarubicin.
  • RESULTS: 74 AML patients (mean age 56 years, range: 18-73 years) completed treatment with etoposide and mitoxantrone; 29 (39%) achieved CR.
  • Lower CR rate was associated with unfavorable cytogenetic risk status at diagnosis and higher percent blasts prior to treatment with mitoxantrone and etoposide.
  • CONCLUSIONS: Our study suggests that the combination of etoposide and mitoxantorne is an active and well-tolerated regimen as second-course therapy in newly diagnosed AML patients who have persistent leukemia after a first course of induction therapy with cytarabine and idarubicin.

  • [Title] A functional procedure using fresh samples to select patients with acute myeloid leukemia prior to treatment with the novel targeted cytotoxic agent F14512.
  • This system can be viewed as a suitable molecular gate to deliver selectively polyamine-based molecules into cancer cells.
  • This study was undertaken to investigate the potential of N-methyl-spermine-NBD, a proprietary fluorescent polyamine conjugate, designed to select patients with PTS-positive leukemic cells.
  • METHODS: The uptake of this probe was first measured by flow cytometry in a panel of human leukemia cell lines.
  • RESULTS: Data showed that high level of fluorescence was detected in F14512 -sensitive cancer cell lines whereas leukemia cells responding poorly to F14512 generally exhibited very low levels of PTS.
  • A panel of 50 fresh human acute myeloid leukemia samples showed a larger inter-individual variation and, interestingly, incorporation of the fluorescent probe was generally higher in leukemia blasts than in lymphocytes.
  • CONCLUSIONS: The data show that the PTS can easily be evaluated in fresh AML blasts and provides a simple means to identify patients for future enrollment in clinical trials with F14512.

  • [Title] Analysis of histone modification around the CpG island region of the p15 gene in acute myeloblastic leukemia.
  • Seven of 11 patients with acute myeloblastic leukemia (AML) had allele(s) in which more than half of 27 CpG sites in the p15 gene were methylated.
  • The p15 CpG island region was surrounded with both the acetylated histone H3 (AcH3) and dimethylated histone H3-lysine 9 (MeH3K9) in bone marrow cells of AML patients, whereas with AcH3 alone in normal marrow cells.
  • The p15 CpG islands of DNA immunoprecipitated with anti-AcH3 antibody and anti-MeH3K9 antibody were not always unmethylated and methylated, respectively, in the patients.
  • These results suggest perturbed modifications of histone H3 around the p15 CpG island region in AML.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • [Title] Age at diagnosis does not adversely affect outcome in patients with Hodgkin's Disease (HD) after autologous transplantation.
  • : e19507 Background: Age at diagnosis is a poor prognostic factor for overall survival after standard therapy for HD.
  • Whether older age is a prognostic factor for outcome after autologous transplantation is not known.
  • We sought to evaluate the effect of older age at diagnosis on transplant outcome.
  • Seventy two patients (29%) were older than 40 years of age at the time of initial diagnosis.
  • At transplantation, 63 (25%) were in complete remission (CR); 148 (60%) were in partial remission (PR); and 37 (15%) had stable (SD) or progressive disease (PD).
  • Peripheral blood stem cells were used as stem cell source in 241 (97%) patients.
  • The cumulative incidence of non-relapse mortality at 1 year was 1.6%.
  • The cumulative incidence of secondary MDS or AML was 8%.
  • In univariate analysis, disease status (p<0.001) and number of prior chemotherapy regimens (p=0.007) were the only factors significantly predicting OS.
  • Disease status was the only factor significant (p<0.01) in a multivariate analysis with a hazard ratio of 2.7 (1.1-6.9) and 9.2 (3.4-25) for patients in PR, and SD/PD respectively (CR reference group).
  • Age at diagnosis was not a significant factor (see table ).
  • CONCLUSIONS: High-dose chemotherapy and autologous transplantation abrogate the adverse impact of age at diagnosis in patients with HD.

  • METHODS: Between January 1990 and December 2006, 94 children (53 male, 41 female) with a median age of 13 (5-16) years and a histopathologic diagnosis of osteosarcoma were treated with an institutional chemotherapy regimen comprising of 6 courses (3 pre-, 3 postoperatively) of epirubicin (90 mg/m2), cisplatin(100 mg/m2), and ifosfamide(2 g/m2 × 3 days) every 3 weeks.
  • 26 patients died; 20 of disease, 5 of toxicity, and 1 of second malignancy (acute myeloid leukemia).
  • 5 and 10 year EFS for nonmetastatic patients was superior to those with metastatic disease [62.4 % (95% CI 49.9-79.9 %) vs. 6.9 % (95% CI 0-19.9 %)) (p<0.001).
  • 10 year OS for 18 patients (11 metastatic at diagnosis) who progressed during preoperative chemotherapy was 13 % vs. 75 % for those who didnot have progressive disease (p< 0.001).
  • Histologic response (<90 percent necrosis vs ≥90 percent) significantly correlated with 5 year EFS (31 % vs 67.6 %, p=0.023) but not with OS (57.7 % vs 76.5 %, p=0.13).
  • CONCLUSIONS: The presence of metastases at diagnosis was the most significant characteristic influencing outcome.

  • Two weeks after, she was discharged, elevated white cell count (440.000/mm3 ) was disclosed.
  • A bone marrow aspirate documented an acute myeloid leukemia.
  • CONCLUSION: Leucocytoclastic vasculitis and polyarteritis nodosa occur in acute myeloid leukemia, but the association with Takayasu's arteritis is new.
  • In our knowledge, only two documented cases of Takayasu's arteritis in association with acute myeloblastic leukemia have been published.

  • : 7000 Background: In younger CN AML without FLT3-ITD, NPM1 mutations predict favorable outcome.
  • METHODS: Pretreatment marrow was studied in 189 older CN AML pts [median age 69 y (60 - 83 y); 162 de novo & 27 secondary (s; prior hematologic disorders) cases] enrolled on CALGB 9720 (n=106) & 10201 (n=83).
  • RESULTS: In de novo CN AML, NPM1 mutated (NPM1mut) pts (54%) had more CRs (85% v 45%, P<.0001) & longer relapse-free (RFS) (P=.02; 3 y rates 23% v 10%) & overall survival (OS) (P<.0001; 3 y 34% v 7%) than NPM1 wild-type (NPM1wt) pts.
  • CONCLUSIONS: NPM1 mutations independently predict better outcome in older CN AML.

  • : 7003 Background: In younger adults with newly diagnosed acute myeloid leukemia (AML), anthracycline dose intensification during induction may improve complete remission (CR) rates; however, an improvement in overall survival (OS) in a randomized trial has not been demonstrated.
  • METHODS: Adult patients with previously untreated AML were randomized to receive either SDD (45 mg/m<sup>2</sup>/d) or HDD (90 mg/m<sup>2</sup>/d) each for 3days combined with standard-dose cytarabine (100 mg/m<sup>2</sup>/d) for 7 days by continuous intravenous infusion.
  • Those achieving a CR were allocated to allogeneic hematopoietic stem cell transplantation (HSCT) or high-dose cytarabine (with or without a single dose of gemtuzumab ozogamicin) prior to autologous HSCT.
  • There were no differences in patient demographics or disease characteristics between the two groups at presentation.
  • In younger AML patients a higher dose of anthracycline in induction should be considered the new standard of care.

  • [Title] A phase I study of the anti-natural killer inhibitory receptor (KIR) monoclonal antibody (1-7F9, IPH2101) in elderly patients with acute myeloid leukemia (AML).
  • : 3015 Background: The outcome of the majority of patients with AML remains poor, especially in the oldest patients.
  • Allogeneic SCT is a curative approach for AML.
  • In some models, it has been shown that KIR mismatch is important for the anti-leukemic effect of the graft, most probably through unleashed NK cells towards AML blasts, as suggested by enhanced in vitro NK lytic activity of KIR-HLA mismatched donor NK against recipient blasts.
  • We present the results of the first-in-human phase I trial of this agent in patients with AML in complete remission (CR).
  • METHODS: Patients aged 60-80 years with non promyelocytic AML in first CR following induction and 1-6 cycles of consolidation chemotherapy, normal renal, and hepatic functions, KIR-expression on patient NK-cells and who signed informed consent were eligible.Dose escalation (0.0003, 0.003, 0.015, 0.075, 0.3, 1, 3 mg/kg) was studied using a 3+3 scheme.
  • As expected for an IgG4, NK cell numbers were unaffected by the treatment.
  • Upregulation of CD69 on NK cells and concomitant increases in TNF and MIP1b circulating cytokines were observed in some patients at the highest doses (0.075, 0.1, 0.3 mg/kg) but a dose dependency has not been reached yet.
  • At the 0.3mg/kg dose, MTD has not been reached, but a one week receptor blockade and signs of NK activation were observed.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • [Title] Screening by fluorescence in situ hybridization for MLL status at diagnosis in 239 unselected patients with acute myeloblastic leukemia.
  • A large number of abnormalities involving the MLL gene have been associated with hematological malignancies, including acute myeloblastic leukemias (AML).
  • Given the overall unfavorable prognosis of AML with an MLL abnormality, its reliable and accurate detection is needed for informed treatment decision.
  • We therefore investigated the occurrence of MLL abnormalities in 239 unselected consecutive AML patients, using conventional cytogenetic and fluorescent in situ hybridization (FISH) analyses.
  • MLL abnormalities were more frequently found in AML-M5 and M4, mainly as rearrangements, and in AML-M2, mainly as overrepresentation.
  • All M2, M4, and M5 AML patients without known recurrent translocations, such as t(8;21) and inv(16), should be investigated by FISH with an MLL probe because it allows the detection of MLL rearrangement that would go undetected by conventional cytogenetics and because it has the ability of detecting multiple copies of the MLL gene in, for example, marker chromosomes and double minutes.

  • 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.
  • CONCLUSIONS: Haploidentical NK cells can be safely administered to AML patients who are in remission.
  • We have recently opened a new trial to evaluate the efficacy of NK cell therapy in children in first remission of AML.

  • Multi-drug resistance (MDR) is an important factor that causes treatment failure in acute leukemia.
  • The purpose of this study is to investigate differentially expressed proteins in the multi-drug resistant acute myeloblastic leukemia (AML) cell line HL-60/DOX and the drug sensitive cell line HL-60, and to identify new potential multi-drug resistant related molecules with the proteomic approach.
  • Two-dimensional gel electrophoresis (2-DE) maps of the proteins, extracted from two AML cell lines, HL-60/DOX and HL-60, were established respectively.
  • They involved the protein disulfide isomerase precursor (PDI), the proteasomes alpha1 and other proteins which are related to drug resistance or cell metabolism, but their functional significances are required further investigation.
  • Nevertheless, it is clear that this proteomic approach for studing the biology and development of MDR is a prerequisite in leukemia.

  • [Title] Simultaneous transplantation of two allogeneic units of cord blood in an adult patient with acute myeloblastic leukemia: a case report.
  • However, the use of cord blood as a source of cells for transplantation is limited by its cell number, usually below 1 billion, which allows for routine transplantation only in children weighting less than 30 kg, while most potential recipients possess a higher body mass.
  • This led to the idea of the simultaneous use of several units of cord blood which, combined, would fulfill the requirements for the necessary cell number for an adult recipient.
  • MATERIAL/METHODS: We attempted to simultaneously transplant an adult patient with refractory acute myeloblastic leukemia utilizing two different cord blood units, one fully matched and one mismatched at one locus.
  • RESULTS: The patient became reconstituted with only one unit, the mismatched, as determined using microsatellite markers, and had no signs of relapse of leukemia.

  • [Title] Non-myeloablative hematopoietic stem cell transplantation is of limited value in advanced or refractory acute myeloblastic leukemia. The Mexican experience.
  • Allogeneic hematopoietic stem cell transplantation (HSCT) is an effective strategy for preventing relapse of acute myelogenous leukemia (AML).
  • We analyzed the outcome of 31 primary AML patients who received a reduced-intensity conditioning regimen for allogeneic HSCT in first or second remission.
  • Thirty-one AML patients, 20 in first complete remission (FCR), 8 in second complete remission (SCR) and 3 in a partial remission (SPR) were included.
  • All patients received cyclosporine-A (CsA) and methotrexate as graft vs. host disease (GvHD) prophylaxis.
  • All patients showed myeloid engraftment (neutrophils >0.5 x 10(9)/l) after a median of 13 days in FCR group and 15 days in SCR group.
  • Conclusions. Reduced-intensity conditioning followed by allogeneic HSCT can induce stable remission in primary AML patients transplanted in FCR.
  • A high relapse rate was documented in patients with refractory or relapsed AML.

  • PATIENTS AND METHODS: We performed standard and molecular cytogenetic analyses of both hematopoietic cells and BMSC from 31 patients with myelodysplastic syndrome (MDS, n = 18) and acute myeloid leukemia (AML, n = 13) and 7 healthy individuals.
  • Mononuclear cells were isolated from fresh bone marrow aspirates at the time of initial diagnosis for cytogenetic analysis of hematopoietic cells (HC) and selection of BMSC.
  • RESULTS: Clonal cytogenetic aberrations were observed in HC from 8 (44%) MDS and 8 (61%) AML patients.
  • Structural chromosomal aberrations, including t(1;7), t(4;7), t(7;9), t(7;10), t(7;19), t(15;17), and others, were detectable in BMSC from 7 of 16 (44%) MDS and 6 of 11 (54%) AML patients.
  • The breakpoints of chromosomes in BMSC were typical for leukemia aberrations.
  • CONCLUSIONS: BMSC from MDS and AML patients show chromosomal abnormalities.
  • Although the majority of cytogenetic aberrations in BMSC were not clonal and differed from chromosomal markers in HC from the same individual, detection of typical chromosomal changes in BMSC suggests enhanced genetic susceptibility of these cells in MDS/AML.
  • This may indicate potential involvement of BMSC in the pathophysiology of MDS/AML.

  • [Title] AML1-ETO rapidly induces acute myeloblastic leukemia in cooperation with the Wilms tumor gene, WT1.
  • AML1-ETO, a chimeric gene frequently detected in acute myelogenous leukemia (AML), inhibits the differentiation of myeloid progenitors by suppressing genes associated with myeloid differentiation and increases the replating ability of clonogenic myeloid progenitors.
  • However, AML1-ETO alone cannot induce AML and thus additional genetic events are required for the onset of AML.
  • The Wilms tumor gene (WT1), which has been identified as the gene responsible for Wilms tumor, is expressed at high levels in almost all human leukemias.
  • AML1-ETO-transduced bone marrow (BM) cells from WT1-Tg mice exhibited inhibition of myeloid differentiation at more immature stages and higher in vitro colony-forming ability compared with AML1-ETO-transduced BM cells from wild-type mice.
  • Most importantly, all of the mice that received a transplant of AML1-ETO-transduced BM cells from the WT1-Tg mice rapidly developed AML.

  • [Title] [Interaction of WAVE1 and genes involved in multiple drug resistance in children with acute myeloblastic leukemia].
  • OBJECTIVE: Multidrug resistance (MDR) is one of the primary causes of suboptimal outcomes in chemotherapy of children with acute myeloblastic leukemia (AML).
  • Expression and/or activity of P-glycoprotein (P-gp), multiple resistance-associated protein-1 (MRP1), lung-resistance related protein (LRP) and breast cancer resistance protein (BCRP) have been considered to be associated with unfavourable outcomes in pediatric AML patients.
  • In previous studies, we found WASP-family verprolin-homologous protein-1 (WAVE1) was involved in the MDR mechanisms in K562/A02 leukemia cells.
  • To investigate the expression of WAVE1, P-gp, MRP1, LRP/MVP and BCRP; and if WAVE1 is involved in MDR of human leukemia cell.
  • METHODS: WAVE1, P-gp, MRP1, LRP, BCRP mRNA and protein expression in bone marrow mononuclear cells (BMMCs) were measured by real-time fluorescence quantitative PCR (RQ-PCR) and Western blot in a cohort of 52 children with acute myeloblastic leukemia.
  • (1) The expression levels of WAVE1, P-gp, MRP, LRP and BCRP in refractory/relapsing group were much higher than that in complete continuous remission (CCR) group. (2) WAVE1 mRNA and protein expression in BMMCs of children were at higher levels when they were newly diagnosed or relapsed, compared with complete continuous remission. (3) The WAVE1 expression at mRNA and protein level in HL60/ADR cells was increased by about 353% and 95% respectively as compared with that in HL60 cells. (4) Overexpression of WAVE1 in HL60 cell lines upregulated the expression levels of MRP and BCRP (MRP mRNA and protein level were increased by about 16.54 times and 129% respectively, BCRP was increased by 4.93 times and 96%); whereas suppression of WAVE1 expression by RNA interference downregulated the expression levels of MRP1 and BCRP (MRP mRNA and protein level was only 11% and 43% of pre-disturbance respectively, BCRP was 14% and 71%).
  • CONCLUSIONS: Higher levels of WAVE1 in the BM indicate an unfavorable prognosis in children with AML.

  • [Title] A case representing coexistence of acute myeloblastic leukemia and dedifferentiated liposarcoma: the possible role of chemotherapy in triggering dedifferentiation.
  • Acute myelogenous leukemia (AML) is a hematological disorder that is characterized by an abnormal proliferation of immature myeloid cells.
  • Dedifferentiated and well-differentiated liposarcomas are the two pathological subtypes of liposarcoma, based on the WHO classification.
  • However, when dedifferentiation occurs, the tumor acquires the aggressive features of a fully malignant lesion.
  • This process largely is believed to progress in a time-dependant manner; however, time is not the only factor of importance.
  • To date, the coexistence of AML and liposarcoma has not been reported in the literature.
  • In this paper, we report on a case of coexistence of AML and liposarcoma, and on the unusual behavior of a well-differentiated tumor after dedifferentiation occurs.

Schwind S, Marcucci G, Maharry K, Radmacher MD, Whitman SP, Paschka P, Mrózek K, Kolitz JE, Larson RA, Bloomfield CD, Cancer and Leukemia Group B (CALGB): MicroRNA 181a (miR-181a) expression as a prognosticator in cytogenetically normal acute myeloid leukemia (CN AML). J Clin Oncol; 2009 May 20;27(15_suppl):7001

  • [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.
  • The mean of 2 miR-181a probe log intensities was used as a continuous variable for analyses.
  • 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.
  • As miR-181a↑ confer better treatment response, novel approaches increasing miR-181a levels might benefit not only CN but also other AML pts.
