  • [Title] Faggot formation in mature neutrophils and metamyelocytes in acute myeloid leukemia without maturation.
  • The authors report a rare case of acute myeloid leukemia (AML) M1 with faggot formation in mature neutrophils and metamyelocytes.
  • Although Auer rods in mature neutrophils are occasionally experienced, they are usually found in AML M2, M3, or M4 cases, but not in M1 cases.
  • In addition, faggot formation in mature neutrophils, as seen in this case, is considered to be particularly unusual because most previously reported cases tended to show simple Auer rods except for AML M3 cases.

  • [Title] Expression of MAC-1 (CD11b) in acute myeloid leukemia (AML) is associated with an unfavorable prognosis.
  • There is evidence to suggest, that cellular adhesion molecules and receptors could play a role in leukemia, e.g., through altered adhesive qualities of leukemic blasts.
  • We have studied the expression of the beta2-integrin Mac-1 (CD11b) on mononuclear cells in 48 patients with AML at first diagnosis by flow cytometry using a direct fluorescein-conjugated antibody.
  • Within the FAB types, we observed a high expression rate in cases with M5 (100% MAC-1+ cases, 73% MAC-1+ cells), M4 (75% MAC-1+ cases, 48% MAC-1+ cells) and in cases with FAB-M1 with 71% MAC-1+ cases and 29% MAC-1+ cells.
  • For clinical evaluations only patients treated according to the protocols of the German AML Cooperative Group (AML-CG) were included (n = 29, cases with AML-M3 were excluded).
  • We can conclude that AML cases with high MAC-1 expression are characterized by a worse prognosis.
  • Evaluation of MAC-1 expression in AML might therefore contribute clinically important data with respect to develop new therapies that influence the interactions between integrins like MAC-1 on leukemic cells and endothelial or immunoreactive cells.
