  • [Title] Pediatric-inspired therapy in adults with Philadelphia chromosome-negative acute lymphoblastic leukemia: the GRAALL-2003 study.
  • PURPOSE: Retrospective comparisons have suggested that adolescents or teenagers with acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL) benefit from pediatric rather than adult chemotherapy regimens.
  • Thus, the aim of the present phase II study was to test a pediatric-inspired treatment, including intensified doses of nonmyelotoxic drugs, such as prednisone, vincristine, or L-asparaginase, in adult patients with ALL up to the age of 60 years.
  • PATIENTS AND METHODS: Between 2003 and 2005, 225 adult patients (median age, 31 years; range, 15 to 60 years) with Philadelphia chromosome-negative ALL were enrolled onto the Group for Research on Adult Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia 2003 protocol, which included several pediatric options.
  • Some adult options, such as allogeneic stem-cell transplantation for patients with high-risk ALL, were nevertheless retained.
  • RESULTS: were retrospectively compared with the historical France-Belgium Group for Lymphoblastic Acute Leukemia in Adults 94 (LALA-94) trial experience in 712 patients age 15 to 55 years.
  • Results Complete remission rate was 93.5%.
  • Complete remission rate (P = .02), EFS (P < .001), and OS (P < .001) compared favorably with the previous LALA-94 experience.
  • CONCLUSION: These results suggest that pediatric-inspired therapy markedly improves the outcome of adult patients with ALL, at least until the age of 45 years.

  • [Title] Impact of TCR status and genotype on outcome in adult T-cell acute lymphoblastic leukemia: a LALA-94 study.
  • Patients with T-cell acute lymphoblastic leukemias (T-ALLs) within the Leucemies Aigues Lymphoblastiques de l'Adulte-94 (LALA-94) prospective trial were treated with a 4-drug per 4-week induction, with intermediate-dose cytarabine and mitoxantrone salvage treatment for patients not achieving complete remission (CR) in 1 course.
  • Both TCR and genotypic stratification can therefore contribute to risk-adapted management of adult T-ALLs.

  • [Title] [Significance of DNA methylation status of runx3 gene promoter region in acute leukemia].
  • This study was aimed to investigate the effects of methylation of runx3 gene promoter on pathogenesis of acute leukemia (AL) and its clinical significance.
  • The results indicated that no methylation was detected in all of cell lines and healthy persons while expression of runx3 gene could be deteted, methylation of runx3 gene promoter was found in 35% (14/40) AL patients and its percentage was significant higher than that healthy persons (0%), the difference in methylation for runx3 between two kinds of samples was statistically significant (p<0.05), while methylation rate in AML was 30.43% (7/23), ALL was 41.18% (7/17), there was no significant difference between them (p>0.25).
  • Patients without methylation of runx3 gene had a lower percentage of blasts in bone marrow and a higher complete remission rate of first chemotherapy than those with methylation of runx3 gene.

  • Red cell enzymes were assayed in a total of 67 patient including 24 patients with AML (19 relapse, 5 remission), 16 patients with ALL (10 relapse, 6 remission), 22 patients with CML and 5 patients with blastic CML.
  • Diagnosis of leukemia was based on clinical presentation, peripheral blood smear and bone marrow examination (as per FAB classification).
  • Red cell HK was high in all leukemia subtypes.
  • Notably there was no PK deficiency in AML or G6PD deficiency in ALL.
  • Activities of G6PD and PK could be correlated in cases of CML, AML, (p<0.05) and ALL (p<0.01) i.e. when there was increased activity of G6PD, PK activity also tended to be higher.
  • HK activity showed a positive correlation with PK and G6PD activity in cases of CML (p<0.05), however in acute leukemia there was no such correlation.
  • Alteration of enzyme activities among red cells in leukemia occurred only during relapse.
  • At the time of remission there has been no significant alteration in any of the enzyme activities.
  • It would therefore, appear that enzyme alterations seen in leukemia patients is due to abnormal pluripotent stem cell that has given to a leukemia cell.
  • With the recovery of normal stem cells function during remission, enzyme abnormalities tend to become normal.

  • [Title] Serum levels of sCD137 (4-1BB) ligand are prognostic factors for progression in acute myeloid leukemia but not in non-Hodgkin's lymphoma.
  • In this study, we correlated sCD137L and sCD178 levels in sera of 42 samples of patients with acute myeloid leukemia (AML) and 46 samples of patients with non-Hodgkin's lymphoma (NHL) with stages, subtypes, and the clinical course of the diseases and determined cut-off values with maximum probability for significant differentiation between cases with higher/lower probability for progress free survival.
  • In contrast to patients with MDS, surprisingly no correlation between sCD178 levels and different subtypes and stages or with prognosis in AML or NHL were observed.
  • Regarding sCD137L, NHL-patients displayed lower levels compared with AML.
  • Statistically significant higher median levels of sCD137L are present in patients with undifferentiated AML (M1/M2, 1,470 pg/mL), poor cytogenetic risk (288 pg/mL) and higher levels of BM-blasts (186 pg/mL) compared with patients with monocytoid AML (M4/M5, 89 pg/mL), intermediate cytogenetic risk (59 pg/mL) and lower levels of BM-blasts (14 pg/mL) respectively.
  • Furthermore, in AML patients sCD137L levels correlate significantly with the probabilities to achieve complete remission (CR), stay in CR or with progress of the disease.
  • Taken together, our data demonstrate that sCD137L can be used as a prognostic factor not only in MDS but also in AML.

  • Granulocyte colony-stimulating factor (G-CSF)-supported, post-remission chemotherapy (Cx) for adult acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL) or lymphoblastic lymphoma (LBL) was evaluated.
  • For patients achieving complete response (CR), two courses of post-remission Cx (course A of daunorubicin, cytosine arabinoside, vindesine, PSL plus IT-MTX; course B of mitoxantrone, etoposide, vincristine, PSL plus IT-MTX) with the use of G-CSF were repeated alternately; thereafter, maintenance Cx including MTX and 6-mercaptopurine was given for 2 years.
  • Among the 119 patients achieving CR, five died in remission, 76 relapsed, and the remaining 38 were alive without disease.
  • In conclusion, G-CSF-supported, intensive post-remission Cx and subsequent SCT are worthy of further investigation for the treatment of adult ALL and LBL.

  • [Title] A method comparison study of flow cytometry and cytomorphology to determine the percentages of blasts in patients with acute leukemia after induction and consolidation chemotherapy.
  • BACKGROUND: Enumeration of blasts in the bone marrow is an essential component in the diagnosis and treatment of acute leukemia.
  • MATERIAL AND METHOD: Fifty-five marrow samples were collected from 38 acute leukemia patients (36 AML and 19 ALL) after hematologic recovery from chemotherapy.
  • RESULTS: A good correlation was found in the overall 55 samples (r = 0.829) and 36 AML samples (r = 0.86).
  • Using a cut-off point of < 5% blasts to define complete remission (CR), 48 cases (87%) were classified as morphological CR (83% CR in AML and 95% CR in ALL).
  • By flow cytometry, only 24 cases (44%) were in CR (28% CR in AML and 74% CR in ALL).
  • The results from each method were concordant in determining CR in 27 samples (49%), with a kappa value of 0.07 for overall samples, 0.057 for AML and -0.096 for ALL samples.
  • CONCLUSION: A good correlation between the percentages of blasts achieved by either method was demonstrated, particularly in AML samples.

  • [Title] Direct intrabone transplant of unrelated cord-blood cells in acute leukaemia: a phase I/II study.
  • BACKGROUND: Cord-blood transplants are associated with delayed or failed engraftment in about 20% of adult patients.
  • METHODS: Adult patients with acute leukaemia, for whom an unrelated stem-cell transplantation was indicated and no suitable unrelated human leucocyte antigen (HLA)-matched donor had been identified, were included in the study and underwent a cord-blood transplant in San Martino Hospital, Genoa, Italy.
  • Eight patients were in first complete remission, ten in second complete remission, and 14 had advanced-stage, refractory disease.
  • Secondary endpoints included the incidence of acute graft-versus-host disease, relapse, and overall survival.
  • FINDINGS: Between March 31, 2006, and Jan 25, 2008, 32 consecutive patients with acute myeloid leukaemia (n=20) or acute lymphoblastic leukaemia (n=12) underwent a cord-blood transplant (median age 36 years [range 18-66]).
  • No patient developed grade III-IV acute graft-versus-host disease.
  • 16 patients were alive and in haematological remission at a median follow-up of 13 months (range 3-23).
  • INTERPRETATION: Our preliminary data suggest that direct intrabone cord-blood transplantation overcomes the problem of graft failure even when low numbers of HLA-mismatched cord-blood cells are transplanted, thus leading to the possibility of use of this technique in a large number of adult patients.

  • [Title] Recurrent finding of the FIP1L1-PDGFRA fusion gene in eosinophilia-associated acute myeloid leukemia and lymphoblastic T-cell lymphoma.
  • Here, we report on seven FIP1L1-PDGFRA-positive patients who presented with acute myeloid leukemia (AML, n=5) or lymphoblastic T-cell non-Hodgkin-lymphoma (n=2) in conjunction with AML or Eos-MPD.
  • AML patients were negative for common mutations of FLT3, NRAS, NPM1, KIT, MLL and JAK2; one patient revealed a splice mutation of RUNX1 exon 7.
  • All patients are alive, disease-free and in complete hematologic and complete molecular remission after a median time of 20 months (range, 9-36) on imatinib.
  • The median time to achievement of complete molecular remission was 6 months (range, 1-14).
  • We conclude that all eosinophilia-associated hematological malignancies should be screened for the presence of the FIP1L1-PDGFRA fusion gene as they are excellent candidates for treatment with tyrosine kinase inhibitors even if they present with an aggressive phenotype such as AML.

  • [Title] [Methylation and expression of glioma pathogenesis-related protein 1 gene in acute myeloid leukemia].
  • OBJECTIVE: To detect the methylation and expression of glioma pathogenesis-related protein 1(GLIPR1) gene in the acute myeloid leukemia (AML) cell lines and bone marrow cells from AML patients, and to determine the relationship between promoter methylation and expression of GLIPR1.
  • METHODS: Five leukemia cell lines, 54 bone marrows from the newly diagnosed AML patients, 48 bone marrows from the acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL )patients, 40 bone marrows from the chronic myeloid leukemia (CML) patients,35 bone marrows from control patients, and 8 bone marrows from the complete remission AML patients were collected.
  • RESULTS: The level of GLIPR1 mRNA in the AML cell lines was lower than that in the chronic myeloid leukemia (CML) and ALL cell lines, whereas the methylation level of GLIPR1 in the former was higher than that in the latter.
  • The level of GLIPR1 mRNA in the AML cell lines was significantly increased, but had no obvious changes in the CML and ALL cell lines after 5-aza-2dC treatment.
  • The mRNA level of GLIPR1 in the AML bone marrows (0.38+/-0.20)was obviously lower than that in the ALL bone marrows (0.76+/-0.18), CML bone marrows (0.80+/-0.14), and control bone marrows(0.85+/-0.12).
  • The level of GLIPR1 mRNA in the bone marrows with complete remission AML was obviously higher than that in the AML bone marrows before the treatment (0.78+/-0.13 vs. 0.36+/-0.20); but there was no obvious difference between the ALL bone marrows and the control bone marrows, and the CML bone marrows and the control bone marrows (both P>0.05).
  • The positive rate of GLIPR1 gene methylation in the AML bone marrows (81.5%) was obviously higher than that in the ALL bone marrows(37.5%), CML bone marrows (27.5%) and the control bone marrows(14.3%).
  • The positive rate of GLIPR1 gene in the bone marrows with complete remission AML was obviously lower than that in the bone marrows before the treatment (12.5% vs. 75.0%), but there was no obvious difference between the ALL bone marrows and between the control bone marrows,and the CML bone marrows and the control bone marrows (both P>0.05).
  • There was a negative correlation between the mRNA level and methylation status of GLIPR1 in the AML bone marrows.
  • CONCLUSION: GLIPR1 expression is downregulated or even lost by promoter methylation in AML, and the expression and methylation level of GLIPR1 gene may have some significance in evaluating the curative effect of AML patients.

  • Fourier transform infrared (FTIR)-spectroscopy has been found useful for monitoring the effectiveness of drugs during chemotherapy in leukemia patients.
  • In the present work, spectral changes that occurred in the white blood cells (WBC) of an adult acute myeloid leukemia (AML) patient and their possible utilization for monitoring biochemistry of WBC were investigated.
  • Similar observations were recorded in child patients with acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL) who were used as test cases.
  • These parameters maybe used as possible markers to indicate successful remission and suggest that FTIR-spectroscopy may provide a rapid optical method for continuous monitoring or evaluation of a WBC population.

  • [Title] [Characteristics of T-cell immunity in patients with acute leukemia].
  • AIM: To study a cytokine profile of cytotoxic T-cells and T-helpers at diagnosis of acute myeloid and lymphoblastic leukemia (AML and ALL) and at different stages of its treatment.
  • MATERIAL AND METHODS: T-cell population of peripheral blood lymphocytes was studied in 19 AML patients at diagnosis, 13 AML patients in remission, 5 AML patients in developing recurrence and 5 ALL patients at diagnosis.
  • RESULTS: The percentage of CD3+CD8+ cells producing interferon-gamma (IF-g) was the same in AML patients and donors.
  • The percentage of CD3+CD8- cells (T-helpers) producing IF-g was similar in the patients at diagnosis and in complete remission being higher than in healthy donors.
  • CONCLUSION: The results obtained evidence for different polarization of T-cell immunity in AML and ALL patients at the time of diagnosis, remission and recurrence: in the onset of AML there was an increase in the production of Th1--proinflammatory cytokines, in ALL--in percent of Th-2 cytokines.
  • In AML recurrence the balance of cytokines shifted in the direction of Th-2 response.

  • OBJECTIVE: To evaluate the effectiveness of chemotherapy (CT) and autologous hematopoietic stem cell transplantation (ASCT) as post-remission treatment for adult acute lymphoblastic leukemia (AL) patients.
  • METHODS: Seventy-four ALL patients achieved first complete remission (CR(1)) with induction therapy, and then received early-stage sequential intensive consolidation chemotherapy.
  • After that, 40 patients received chemotherapy (CT group) and 34 received ASCT (ASCT group) as post-remission treatment.
  • The rates of leukemia free survival (LFS), overall survival (OS) and relapse were compared between the two groups. RESULTS:.
  • CONCLUSIONS: Early sequential intensive consolidation chemotherapy followed by auto-HSCT could significantly reduce late relapse rate for adult ALL patients, and those received ex vivo purged autografts and immunotherapy and (or) maintenance therapy after ASCT have lower late relapse rate and superior survival.

  • [Title] FLAG-IDA in the treatment of refractory/relapsed adult acute lymphoblastic leukemia.
  • Relapsed or refractory adult acute lymphoblastic leukemias (ALL) have poor prognosis.
  • Twenty three patients with relapsed/refractory adult ALL were treated with fludarabine, cytarabine, granulocyte colony-stimulating factor, and idarubicin (FLAG-IDA).
  • Nine (39.1%) patients achieved complete remission (CR) following salvage therapy, whereas 13 (56.5%) patients were refractory, and one patient died in aplasia due to infection.
  • In patients achieving remission, the median time to reach absolute neutrophil count (ANC) more than 0.5x10(9)/l and 1x10(9)/l was 20 (range 16-25) and 24 (range 20-28) days from the start of chemotherapy, respectively.

  • [Title] [Detection of glutathione S-transferase and lung resistance-related proteins in acute leukemia and its clinical significance].
  • OBJECTIVE: To explore the relationship among intracellular glutathione S-transferase activity (GST), the expression of lung resistance-related proteins (LRP) in acute leukemia, and its clinical effects.
  • METHODS: The GST activity of bone marrow mononuclear cells and LRP expression in 57 acute leukemia patients were detected by the spectrophotometry assay and immuno-cytochemistry (SABC), respectively.
  • RESULTS: The GST activity of bone marrow mononuclear cells in the acute leukemia group was significantly higher than that of the control group (P < 0.01).
  • The GST activity of mononuclear cells in acute leukemia was positively correlated with the percentage of blast in the bone marrow (r = 0.30, P < 0.05).
  • The GST activity of mononuclear cells in the untreated acute leukemia group was obviously higher than that of the complete remission group (P <0.01).
  • The GST activity in the refractory or relapsed acute leukemia group was significantly higher than that of the complete remission group and untreated leukemia group (P <0.05).
  • In post-chemotherapy 13 of 17 the LRP-positive patients were the non-remission, 12 of the 20 LRP-negative patients were the complete remission.
  • The GST activities of non-remission patients in the LRP-positive and LRP-negative group obviously increased.
  • CONCLUSION: The increase of GST activity in the bone marrow mononuclear cells is related to the clinical curative effects and the proliferation of blast in acute leukemia.
  • Detection of LRP and GST activities in acute leukemia may have a reference value in judging the leukemia with drug resistance and estimating the prognosis.

  • [Title] Non-myeloablative stem cell transplantation in patients with relapsed acute lymphoblastic leukemia: results of a multicenter study.
  • Using non-myeloablative conditioning, allogeneic hematopoietic stem cell transplantation (HSCT) was conducted in 43 ALL patients in a CR2.
  • Ten patients (23%) developed acute GVHD, whereas eight patients (18.6%) developed chronic GVHD.
  • These results are inferior to those obtained using the same allografting method in other leukemias, probably as a consequence of poor susceptibility to the graft-versus-leukemia effect of the ALL cells beyond first remission as compared with other hematological malignancies.

  • [Title] Significant reduction of the hybrid BCR/ABL transcripts after induction and consolidation therapy is a powerful predictor of treatment response in adult Philadelphia-positive acute lymphoblastic leukemia.
  • Philadelphia chromosome-positive (Ph+) acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL) has a dismal prognosis.
  • We prospectively evaluated minimal residual disease (MRD) by measuring BCR/ ABL levels with a quantitative real-time PCR procedure after induction and after consolidation in 45 adults with Ph+ ALL who obtained complete hematological remission after a high-dose daunorubicin induction schedule.
  • A total of 42 patients evaluable for outcome analysis were operationally divided into two MRD groups: good molecular responders (GMRs; n = 28) with > 2 log reduction of residual disease after induction and > 3 log reduction after consolidation therapy, and poor molecular responders (PMRs; n = 14) who, despite complete hematological remission, had a higher MRD at both time points.
  • Salvage therapy induced a second sustained complete hematological remission in three GMR patients, but in no PMR patient.
  • Our data indicate that, as already shown in children, adult Ph+ ALL patients have a heterogeneous sensitivity to treatment, and that early quantification of residual disease is a prognostic parameter in this disease.

  • [Title] A multi-center phase I study of clofarabine, etoposide and cyclophosphamide in combination in pediatric patients with refractory or relapsed acute leukemia.
  • This Phase I study of clofarabine with etoposide and cyclophosphamide for children with relapsed/refractory acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL) or acute myelogenous leukemia (AML) was conducted to determine the maximum tolerated dose (MTD), dose-limiting toxicities and the recommended phase 2 doses (RP2Ds).
  • A total of 25 patients (20 ALL and 5 AML) were enrolled in five cohorts.
  • Complete remission (CR) was achieved in 10 patients (ALL: nine; AML: one), and CR without platelet recovery in six patients (ALL: two; AML: four) for an overall response rate of 64% (ALL: 55%; AML: 100%).
  • In conclusion, the combination of clofarabine, etoposide and cyclophosphamide was well tolerated and effective in pediatric patients with relapsed/refractory leukemia.

  • Nine patients were alive 5 years after the original diagnosis, although only three of them had undergone hematopoietic stem cell transplantation--one in first complete remission and two in second remission.
  • S-100 was negative in 28 cases of acute myeloid leukemia evaluated for this marker.
  • CONCLUSIONS: In contrast to adult cases, in which long-term survival depends on stem cell transplantation in first complete remission, blastic plasmacytoid dendritic cell neoplasms in children are clinically less aggressive.
  • Treatment with high-risk acute lymphoblastic leukemia-type chemotherapy appears to be effective, and stem cell transplantation may be reserved for children who relapse and achieve a second remission.
  • Outcomes were more favorable in cases that lacked cutaneous disease at presentation, although a comparison of cutaneous and non-cutaneous cases might be confounded by differences in treatment regimens.

  • [Title] [Prevalence and prognostic significance of myeloid markers in adults with high-risk acute lymphoblastic leukemia].
  • BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVE: The prognostic value of myeloid antigen expression in adult acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL) is controversial.
  • The objective of this study was to evaluate the frequency and prognostic significance of myeloid antigen expression in adults with high risk ALL.
  • The frequency of myeloid antigen expression, its association with other clinical and biologic variables and the prognostic significance in terms of complete remission (CR) rate, event free survival (EFS) and overall survival (OS) were analyzed.
  • RESULTS: Myeloid antigen expression was present in 96 out of 222 patients (43%).
  • No association was observed between myeloid antigen expression and the main clinical and biologic characteristics of ALL.
  • Response to treatment was slower in patients expressing myeloid antigens, but no differences were found in CR achievement, EFS or OS.
  • The probability of EFS at 10 years for ALL patients without and with myeloid antigen expression was 35% and 34%, respectively, while the probability of OS at 10 years was 30% and 33%, respectively.
  • CONCLUSIONS: In this study, myeloid antigen expression did not have prognostic influence in adult patients with high risk ALL.

  • [Title] Reduced-intensity conditioning allogeneic stem cell transplantation is a potential therapeutic approach for adults with high-risk acute lymphoblastic leukemia in remission: results of a prospective phase 2 study.
  • The aim of this prospective study was to investigate the feasibility of reduced-intensity conditioning (RIC) allogeneic stem cell transplantation (SCT) in 37 adults with high-risk acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL) in first (n=30) or second (n=7) complete remission (CR).
  • The cumulative incidence of acute (grades II-IV) and chronic GVHD was 43.2 and 65.6%, respectively.
  • After a median follow-up of 36 months for surviving transplants, the 3-year relapse, non-relapse mortality, disease-free survival and overall survival rates were 19.7, 17.7, 62.6 and 64.1%, respectively.
  • This study suggests that RIC-SCT is a potential therapeutic approach for adults with high-risk ALL in remission who are ineligible for myeloablative transplantation.

  • To assess the sensitivity of PRAME for monitoring MRD, PRAME-positive t(8;21) AML samples with detectable AML1/ETO expression by conventional RT-PCR (n=17) were assessed for quantitative expression of AML1/ETO and PRAME.
  • To confirm that PRAME expression was correlated with clinical data, the expression of PRAME was also sequentially followed in patients (n=13) from onset to cytological remission or relapse.

  • [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.
  • In 8 AML patients with Id4 gene methylation, 5 relapsed in 12 months, while two relapsed in 20 AML patients with Id4 gene methylation.
  • CONCLUSION: Id4 gene promoter methylation is a candidate of biomarker for MRD detection in acute leukemias.

  • [Title] Up-regulation of Cx43 expression and GJIC function in acute leukemia bone marrow stromal cells post-chemotherapy.
  • In earlier work, we found that in acute leukemia BMSCs, expression of Cx43 and functioning GJIC declined.
  • However, there has been no evaluation of whether GJIC in BMSCs in complete remission (CR) post-chemotherapy is different from GJIC pre-chemotherapy.
  • The results showed that the expression level of Cx43 and its mRNA in acute leukemia BMSCs post-chemotherapy was significantly higher and similar to normal levels than in primary acute leukemia BMSCs (p<0.01).
  • Functional tests in cultures using dye transfer and fluorescence recovery after photobleaching (FRAP) assays showed that the function of GJIC in acute leukemia BMSCs was significantly improved following effective chemotherapy.
  • Our findings suggest Cx43 and GJIC might be involved in the courses of occurrence, development and termination of acute leukemia, and effective chemotherapy could improve Cx43 expression and GJIC function that were dysfunctional prior to treatment.

  • [Title] Favorable outcomes with alemtuzumab-conditioned unrelated donor stem cell transplantation in adults with high-risk Philadelphia chromosome-negative acute lymphoblastic leukemia in first complete remission.
  • BACKGROUND: Approximately 40% of adults with Philadelphia chromosome-negative acute lymphoblastic leukemia achieve long-term survival following unrelated donor hematopoietic stem cell transplantation in first complete remission but severe graft-versus-host disease remains a problem affecting survival.
  • Although T-cell depletion abrogates graft-versus-host disease, the impact on disease-free survival in acute lymphoblastic leukemia is not known.
  • DESIGN AND METHODS: We analyzed the outcome of 48 adults (median age 26 years) with high-risk, Philadelphia-chromosome-negative acute lymphoblastic leukemia undergoing T-cell depleted unrelated donor-hematopoietic stem cell transplantation (67% 10 of 10 loci matched) in first complete remission reported to the British Society of Blood and Marrow Transplantation Registry from 1993 to 2005.
  • Overall survival, disease-free survival and non-relapse mortality rates at 5 years were 61% (95% CI 46-75), 59% (95% CI 45-74) and 13% (95% CI 3-25), respectively.
  • The incidences of grades II-IV and III-IV acute graft-versus-host disease were 27% (95% CI 16-44) and 10% (95% CI 4-25), respectively.
  • CONCLUSIONS: T-cell depleted hematopoietic stem cell transplantation from unrelated donors can result in good overall survival and low non-relapse mortality for adults with high-risk acute lymphoblastic leukemia in first complete remission and merits prospective evaluation.

  • [Title] Cumulative incidence of secondary neoplasms as a first event after childhood acute lymphoblastic leukemia.
  • CONTEXT: Little is known about the incidence of secondary neoplasms after 15 to 20 years in children and adolescents who were treated for acute lymphoblastic leukemia.
  • OBJECTIVES: To investigate the cumulative incidence of secondary neoplasms in pediatric patients treated for acute lymphoblastic leukemia over 30 years and to characterize late-occurring tumors.
  • DESIGN, SETTING, AND PATIENTS: Retrospective study of 2169 patients with acute lymphoblastic leukemia treated between 1962 and 1998 at St Jude Children's Research Hospital, Memphis, Tenn, who achieved complete remission and had a median follow-up time of 18.7 years (range, 2.4-41.3 years).
  • MAIN OUTCOME MEASURES: Cumulative incidences of secondary neoplasms in first remission and standard incidence ratios of observed rates compared with rates of cancer development in the general US population.
  • RESULTS: Secondary neoplasms developed as the first event in 123 patients and comprised 46 myeloid malignancies, 3 lymphomas, 14 basal cell carcinomas, 16 other carcinomas, 6 sarcomas, 16 meningiomas, and 22 other brain tumors.
  • The cumulative incidence of each tumor type at 30 years was 2.19% (SE, 0.32%) for myeloid malignancy, 0.17% (SE, 0.10%) for lymphoma, 3.00% (SE, 0.59%) for brain tumor, 4.91% (SE, 1.04%) for carcinoma, and 0.57% (SE, 0.37%) for sarcoma.
  • CONCLUSIONS: The cumulative incidence of secondary neoplasms increases steadily over 30 years after treatment of acute lymphoblastic leukemia.
  • These results suggest that lifelong follow-up of acute lymphoblastic leukemia survivors is needed to ascertain the full impact of treatment and other leukemia-related factors on secondary neoplasm development.

  • [Title] [Expression of MUC1 gene and MDR1 gene in non-M3 subtype acute leukemia and their correlations to clinical treatment efficacy].
  • BACKGROUND & OBJECTIVE: Mucin 1 (MUC1) gene is expressed in various tumors, and overexpressed in acute leukemia.
  • This study was to evaluate the expression of MUC1 gene and multidrug-resistance protein-1 (MDR1) gene in non-M3 subtype acute leukemia and their correlations to clinical treatment efficacy.
  • METHODS: The expression of MUC1 and MDR1 genes were measured in 34 patients with non-M3 subtype acute leukemia by reverse transcription-polymerase chain reaction (RT-PCR); their correlations to clinical treatment efficacy were observed.
  • Complete remission (CR) rate was significantly higher in MUC1-negative patients than in MUC1-positive patients (94.1% vs. 52.9%, P<0.01).
  • CONCLUSIONS: The non-M3 subtype acute leukemia patients with positive expression of MUC1 have high positive rate of MDR1.
  • Co-detection of MUC1 gene and MDR1 gene can predict treatment efficacy on non-M3 subtype acute leukemia.

  • [Title] [Multicenter randomized control trial on safety of domestic idarubicin for acute leukemia].
  • OBJECTIVE: To evaluate the safety of domestically produced idarubicin in the treatment of acute leukemia by a multicenter randomized control trial.
  • METHODS: This trial was carried out in the hemotologica department of five hospitals throughout China, with hospitalized patients who suffered from acute myelogenous leukemia ( AML except M3 type) , acute lymphocytic leukemia ( ALL) , chronic myelogenous leukemia-blast (CML-blast) , totally 155 patients.
  • In this study, 155 leukemia patients were randomly grouped into: 1. test group treated using domestic idarubicin, 2. control group using imported idarubicin.
  • The acute myelogenous leukemia regimen included idarubicin 8 mg/m(2), dl -3 plus cytosine arabinoside 100 mg/m(2), dl - 7 for 1-2 cycles.
  • The regimen for acute lymphocytic leukemia was idarubicin 8 mg/m2, dl - 3; vincristine 2 mg/mr, dl; cyclophosphamide 750 mg/m2, dl ; plus prednisone 60 mg/m(2),dl - 14 for 1-2 cycles.
  • The incidence of non-hematological toxicities in domestic idarubicin group and imported idarubicin group was 84.
  • Discontinuation of treatment due to non-hematological toxicity was not neccessary.
  • CONCLUSION: Domestic idarubicin is comparable to imported counterpart in efficiency and safety for the treatment of acute leukemia.
  • The most severe side effects of domestic idarubicin is hematological toxicity, which should be closely observed and treated in time, while its non-hematological toxicity is tolerable.

  • [Title] [The clinical significance of real-time fluorescence PCR quantification of hepatocyte growth factor mRNA expression in acute leukemia].
  • OBJECTIVE: To detect quantitatively hepatocyte growth factor (HGF) mRNA expressions of bone marrow mononuclear cells (MNCs) in acute leukemia (AL) and investigate its clinical significance.
  • RESULTS: Expressions of HGF mRNA in a group of AL were higher significantly than these in a control group (6.936 +/- 1.613, 0.407 +/- 0.170, P < 0.001), but there was similarity between a group of acute myeloid leukemia (AML) and group of acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL) (7.127 +/- 1.911, 6.635 +/- 0.934, P > 0.05).
  • In addition, expressions of HGF mRNA in the remission group were lower than these in the non-remission group (6.393 +/- 1.165, 8.041 +/- 1.848, P < 0.005).
  • As to AL subtypes, there are no statistically significant differences between AML and ALL as well as between different age and sex.

  • [Title] Expression of MRP1 gene in acute leukemia.
  • CONTEXT AND OBJECTIVE: Overexpression of the multidrug resistance-associated protein 1 (MRP1) gene has been linked with resistance to chemotherapy in vitro, but little is known about its clinical impact on acute leukemia patients.
  • Our aim was to investigate the possible association between MRP1 gene expression level and clinical outcomes among Iranian leukemia patients.
  • DESIGN AND SETTING: This was an analytical cross-sectional study on patients referred to the Hematology, Oncology and Stem Cell Research Center, Sharyatee Public Hospital, whose diagnosis was acute myelogenous leukemia (AML) or acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL).
  • METHODS: To correlate with prognostic markers and the clinical outcome of acute leukemia, MRP1 gene expression was assessed in 35 AML cases and 17 ALL cases, using the quantitative real-time polymerase chain reaction and comparing this to the chemotherapy response type.
  • RESULTS: Mean expression in AML patients in complete remission (0.032 +/- 0.031) was significantly lower than in relapsed cases (0.422 +/- 0.297).
  • In contrast, no significant difference in MRP1 mRNA level was observed between complete remission and relapsed ALL patients.
  • CONCLUSIONS: The findings suggest that high MRP1 expression was associated with poor clinical outcome and was correlated with the M5 subtype and poor cytogenetic subgroups among AML patients but not among ALL patients.

  • [Title] [Expression and clinical significance of IL-17 and IL-21 in patients with acute leukemia].
  • This study was aimed to investigate the effects of peripheral blood Th17 cells, IL-17 and IL-21 in the occurrence and development of acute leukemia.
  • 60 patients with acute leukemia (19 patients with ALL, 41 patients with AML) were divided into non-remission group (group A, n=24), remission group (group B, n=36); 25 healthy volunteers were used as control group (group C).
  • In addition to this, these 60 patients were divided into infection group (n=32) and non-infection group (n=28) on the basis of infection status.
  • (3) the expression levels of Th17 and IL-17 in infection group were lower than those in non-infection group (p<0.05).
  • It is concluded that Th17 cells may play important roles in the occurrence and development of acute leukemia through secreting IL-17 and IL-21, and their functional level can partially reflect the status of leukemia and can be used to evaluate the risks of infection in patients with leukemia.

  • [Title] Dose escalation of lenalidomide in relapsed or refractory acute leukemias.
  • We report results of a phase I dose-escalation trial of lenalidomide in relapsed or refractory acute leukemia.
  • PATIENTS AND METHODS: Thirty-one adults with acute myeloid leukemia (AML) and four adults with acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL) were enrolled.
  • In AML, five (16%) of 31 patients achieved complete remission (CR); three of three patients with cytogenetic abnormalities achieved cytogenetic CR (none with deletion 5q).
  • All responses occurred in AML with low presenting WBC count.
  • Two of four patients who received lenalidomide as initial therapy for AML relapse after allogeneic transplantation achieved durable CR after development of cutaneous graft-versus-host disease, without donor leukocyte infusion.
  • CONCLUSION: Lenalidomide was safely escalated to 50 mg daily for 21 days, every 4 weeks, and was active with relatively low toxicity in patients with relapsed/refractory AML.
  • Remissions achieved after transplantation suggest a possible immunomodulatory effect of lenalidomide, and results provide enthusiasm for further studies in AML, either alone or in combination with conventional agents or other immunotherapies.

  • The coincidence of T-cell acute lymphoblastic leukemia (T-ALL) and histiocytic disorders, including hemophagocytic lymphohistiocytosis (T-ALL/HLH) and Langerhans cell histiocytosis (T-ALL/LCH), is very seldom and is usually associated with a dismal prognosis.
  • The mean initial leukocyte count was higher than in the non-HLH/LCH group (270,700 +/- 60,677 microl(-1) vs 134,141 +/- 5,663 microl(-1); p = 0.074).
  • Five of 6 patients obtained a good prednisone response (GPR) at day 8 in peripheral blood with <5% blasts at day 15 in BM and all cases were in complete remission (CR) at day 33.

  • [Title] The outcome of full-intensity and reduced-intensity conditioning matched sibling or unrelated donor transplantation in adults with Philadelphia chromosome-negative acute lymphoblastic leukemia in first and second complete remission.
  • We examined the efficacy of reduced-intensity conditioning (RIC) and compared outcomes of 93 patients older than 16 years after RIC with 1428 patients receiving full-intensity conditioning for allografts using sibling and unrelated donors for Philadelphia-negative acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL) in first or second complete remission.
  • The RIC versus full-intensity conditioning groups had slightly, but not significantly, less acute grade II-IV graft-versus-host disease (39% vs 46%) and chronic graft-versus-host disease (34% vs 42%), yet similar transplantation-related mortality.
  • Multivariate analysis demonstrated significantly improved overall survival with: Karnofsky performance status more than 80, first complete remission, lower white blood count, well-matched unrelated or sibling donors, transplantation since 2001, age younger than 30 years, and conditioning with TBI, but no independent impact of conditioning intensity.
  • RIC merits further investigation in prospective trials of adult ALL.

  • [Title] Clinical features and outcome of T-lineage acute lymphoblastic leukemia in adults: a low initial white blood cell count, as well as a high count predict decreased survival rates.
  • Although biological and clinical features differ between B-lineage acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL) and T-lineage ALL (T-ALL), there have been few reports that focused on the prognosis for T-ALL in adults, primarily due to its rarity.
  • Here, we studied the long-term outcomes and prognostic factors specific for adult T-ALL by combining patient data from the three prospective trials conducted by the Japan Adult Leukemia Study Group (JALSG).
  • Of them, 66 patients (75.8%) achieved complete remission, and relapse occurred in 41 patients.
  • Although our findings need confirmation, these results will be helpful in the identification of prognostically distinct subgroups within adult T-ALL.

  • OBJECTIVE: To explore the clinical characteristics of adult acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL), compare the efficacy of different induction regimens and analyze the prognostic factors.
  • METHODS: Data of 149 adult ALL patients hospitalized in our institute between June 1998 and December 2005 were retrospectively reviewed.
  • 2) 149 patients completed the VDCP, VDLP or VDCLP induction therapies (at least 4 weeks treatment for each), 140 (93.7%) of them achieved complete remission (CR) with the first course CR rates of 80.8%, 92.3% and 81.4% , respectively (P=0.618).
  • CONCLUSIONS: Most adult ALL patients are B-ALL and karyotype have more changed.
  • Age and WBC at diagnosis, presence of t(9;22) (q34;q11) and the courses of post-remission treatment are important prognostic factors.

  • [Title] Molecular relapse in adult standard-risk ALL patients detected by prospective MRD monitoring during and after maintenance treatment: data from the GMALL 06/99 and 07/03 trials.
  • Although levels of minimal residual disease (MRD) decrease below the detection limit in most adult patients with standard-risk acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL) after consolidation treatment, about 30% of these patients will ultimately relapse.
  • All patients were in hematologic remission, had completed first-year polychemotherapy, and tested MRD negative prior to study entry.
  • In 15 of these patients, MRD within the quantitative range of PCR was measured in hematologic remission, and 13 of these patients (89%) relapsed after a median interval of 4.1 months.
  • We conclude that conversion to MRD positivity during the early postconsolidation phase in adult standard-risk ALL patients is highly predictive of subsequent hematologic relapse.

  • Acute lymphoblastic leukaemia (ALL) responds well to chemotherapy and the majority of children and a significant proportion of adults are cured of their disease after primary therapy.
  • The infusion of unmodified donor lymphocytes (DLI) following relapse after allogeneic transplantation has been shown to be curative in patients with chronic myeloid leukaemia (CML).
  • For example, some strategies utilise the patients dendritic cells (DC) to present tumour antigens to donor lymphocytes and convert them into CTL either by pulsing DC taken in remission with ALL cells or lysate, fusing such 'normal' DC with ALL cells or using DC cultured from the patient's ALL cells.

  • [Title] Unrelated transplantation for poor-prognosis adult acute lymphoblastic leukemia: long-term outcome analysis and study of the impact of hematopoietic graft source.
  • Adults with high-risk acute lymphoblastic leukemia (HR-ALL) have a poor outcome with standard chemotherapy and usually undergo unrelated stem cell transplantation (SCT) if a matched sibling donor is not available.
  • We analyzed the outcome of adult patients with unrelated SCT for HR-ALL and studied the possible effect of the hematopoietic stem cell source of the transplant.
  • A total of 149 adult patients (median age, 29 years, range, 15-59 years) with HR-ALL underwent unrelated SCT in 13 Spanish institutions between 2000 and 2007.
  • Patients in first complete remission (CR1) at transplantation had at least one adverse prognostic factor (advanced age, adverse cytogenetics, hyperleukocytosis, or slow response to induction therapy).
  • All unrelated transplantation modalities were associated with high treatment-related mortality for adult HR-ALL patients without a sibling donor.

  • [Title] Outcome of patients treated for relapsed or refractory acute lymphoblastic leukemia: a Therapeutic Advances in Childhood Leukemia Consortium study.
  • PURPOSE: Despite improvements in treatment, approximately 20% of patients with acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL) experience relapse and do poorly.
  • The Therapeutic Advances in Childhood Leukemia (TACL) Consortium was assembled to assess novel drugs for children with resistant leukemia.
  • We hypothesize that novel agents and combinations that fail to improve baseline complete remission rates in comparable populations are unlikely to contribute to better outcomes and should be abandoned.
  • RESULTS: Complete remission (CR) rates (mean +/- SE) were 83% +/- 4% for early first marrow relapse, 93% +/- 3% for late first marrow relapse, 44% +/- 5% for second marrow relapse, and 27% +/- 6% for third marrow relapse.
  • CONCLUSION: We generally confirm a 40% CR rate for second and subsequent relapse, but our remission rate for early first relapse seems better than that reported in the literature (83% v approximately 70%).
  • Our data may allow useful modeling of an expected remission rate for any population of patients who experience relapse.

  • RESULTS: The incidences of IPFI secondary to acute myeloid leukemia (AML), acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL), non-Hodgkin's lymphoma (NHL), and aplastic anemia (AA) were 4.6%, 3.2%, 2.8%, and 2.5%, respectively.
  • In patients with IPFI secondary to AML, 88.5% (23/26) of the patients suffered from the infections during the non-remission (NR) period (including relapse), and 11.5% (3/26) in the complete-remission (CR) period.
  • CONCLUSIONS: IPFI secondary to MBD is most common in AML patients.
  • Patients with NR of AML, neutropenia or agranulocytosis, and long-term broad-spectrum antibiotics usage are susceptible to IPFI.

  • The successful treatment of paediatric malignancies by multimodal therapy has improved outcomes for children with cancer, especially those with acute lymphoblastic leukaemia (ALL).
  • Depending on dosage, 2-12% of patients treated with topoisomerase II inhibitors and/or alkylating agents develop treatment-related acute myeloid leukaemia characterized by translocations at 11q23.
  • Even though the biological significance of these rearrangements needs further investigation, they demonstrate a degree of genome instability, indicating the relevance of cytogenetic and molecular studies during the follow-up of patients in complete clinical remission.

  • [Title] Generation of functional dendritic cells (DC) in adult acute lymphoblastic leukemia: rationale for a DC-based vaccination program for patients in complete hematological remission.
  • The capacity to generate effective dendritic cells (DC) from adult acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL) patients in complete remission (CR) and off-therapy was investigated.
  • DC loaded with leukemia-derived apoptotic bodies increased their ability to stimulate both allogeneic and autologous lymphocytes, and to generate specific anti-leukemic CD3 + cells.
  • These findings offer a rationale for the design of DC-based vaccine programs for adult ALL patients in CR with the aim of controlling/eradicating the disease.

  • [Title] Phase I clinical and pharmacokinetic study of a novel schedule of flavopiridol in relapsed or refractory acute leukemias.
  • BACKGROUND: A pharmacokinetically derived schedule of flavopiridol administered as a 30 min intravenous bolus followed by 4-hour continuous intravenous infusion (IVB/CIVI) is active in fludarabine-refractory chronic lymphocytic leukemia, but no studies examining the feasibility and maximum tolerated dose of this schedule have been reported in acute leukemia.
  • DESIGN AND METHODS: We conducted a phase I dose escalation trial of single-agent flavopiridol in adults with relapsed/refractory acute leukemias, utilizing a modification of the intravenous bolus/continuous intravenous infusion approach, intensifying treatment for administration on days 1, 2, and 3 of 21-day cycles.
  • RESULTS: Twenty-four adults with relapsed/refractory acute myeloid leukemia (n=19) or acute lymphoblastic leukemia (n=5) were enrolled.
  • One refractory acute myeloid leukemia patient had short-lived complete remission with incomplete count recovery.
  • CONCLUSIONS: Flavopiridol as a single agent given by intravenous bolus/continuous intravenous infusion causes marked, immediate cytoreduction in relapsed/refractory acute leukemias, but objective clinical responses were uncommon.

  • [Title] Early molecular response to posttransplantation imatinib determines outcome in MRD+ Philadelphia-positive acute lymphoblastic leukemia (Ph+ ALL).
  • In adult Philadelphia chromosome-positive acute lymphoblastic leukemia (Ph+ ALL), minimal residual disease (MRD) after stem cell transplantation (SCT) is associated with a relapse probability exceeding 90%.
  • All patients who achieved an (early)CR(mol) remained in remission for the duration of imatinib treatment; 3 patients relapsed after imatinib was discontinued.
  • In conclusion, approximately half of patients with Ph+ ALL receiving imatinib for MRD positivity after SCT experience prolonged DFS, which can be anticipated by the rapid achievement of a molecular complete remission (CR).

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • BACKGROUND: The advent of imatinib has considerably changed the treatment of chronic myeloid leukemia (CML).
  • METHODS: The authors evaluated long-term outcome, rates of response, and resistance in 300 patients with BCR-ABL-positive leukemias (CML in chronic phase after failure to respond to interferon-alpha [CP], n = 139; accelerated phase [AP], n = 80; myeloid blast crisis [BC], n = 76; lymphoid BC and Philadelphia chromosome-positive acute lymphoblastic leukemia, n = 5) who entered clinical trials with imatinib in a single center after an observation time of 4.5 years.
  • RESULTS: In CP, hematologic remission was achieved in 97% and major (MCR) and complete cytogenetic remission (CCR) in 61% and 49% of patients, respectively.
  • In myeloid BC, the median survival period after the start of imatinib and after diagnosis of BC was 6 and 9 months, respectively.
  • Hematologic resistance occurred in 25%, 41%, and 92% of patients in CP, AP, and myeloid BC, respectively, and was associated with BCR-ABL mutations in 45% of patients and with clonal evolution in 58% of patients.

  • [Title] High-dose idarubicin in combination with Ara-C in patients with relapsed or refractory acute lymphoblastic leukemia: a pharmacokinetic and clinical study.
  • OBJECTIVE: High dose (HD) Ara-C combined with a single HD idarubicin dose (IDA) is an efficient and safe salvage regimen for patients with refractory or relapsed acute lymphoblastic leukemia as indicated by phase II studies.
  • PATIENTS AND METHODS: Twenty-five patients with refractory or relapsed acute lymphoblastic leukemia received Ara-C 3 g/m2 from days 1-5, idarubicin (HD-IDA) 40 mg/m2 as rapid intravenous (i.v.) infusion on day 3 and subcutaneous G-CSF 5 microg/kg from day 7 until PMN recovery.
  • RESULTS: Eleven patients (44%, 95% CI: 23-65%) achieved complete remission with median disease free survival for 6 months.
  • Our data do not allow us to clearly attribute this behavior to a pharmacokinetic non-linearity since the baseline creatinine clearance, even within normal values, and patient age are significantly different in the two groups.

  • [Title] Chemoimmunotherapy with a modified hyper-CVAD and rituximab regimen improves outcome in de novo Philadelphia chromosome-negative precursor B-lineage acute lymphoblastic leukemia.
  • PURPOSE: The adverse prognosis of CD20 expression in adults with de novo precursor B-lineage acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL) prompted incorporation of monoclonal antibody therapy with rituximab into the intensive chemotherapy regimen hyper-CVAD (fractionated cyclophosphamide, vincristine, doxorubicin, dexamethasone).
  • RESULTS: The complete remission (CR) rate was 95% with 3-year rates of CR duration (CRD) and survival (OS) of 60% and 50%, respectively.

  • [Title] [Acute lymphoblastic leukemia: experience in adult patients treated with hyperCVAD and 0195 Protocol, at the Instituto Nacional de Ciencias Médicas y Nutrición Salvador Zubirán. Cohort 2003-2007].
  • INTRODUCTION: Despite therapeutic advances, acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL) in adults remains a disease with poor long term outcome and survival rates.
  • OBJECTIVE: To describe characteristics of adults with acute lymphoblastic leukemia, response to treatment, complications and to evaluate further survival related factors and to compare our experience with other reports of literature.
  • There were 36 patients who received treatment: 13 received HCVAD and 23 the 0195 protocol; 78% achieved global complete remission, 85% for the patients with HCVAD and 74% with 0195.
  • Factors associated with worse survival rate were hyperleukocytosis, T phenotype and lack of early complete remission.
  • During induction, grade 3 to 4 non hematopoietic toxicity was 17%.
  • CONCLUSIONS: With HCVAD, we observed worse complete remission, disease-free survival and overall survival rates compared with the original MDACC reports.
