  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • [Title] Outcome of childhood acute promyelocytic leukemia treated using a modified AIDA protocol.
  • BACKGROUND: Combination treatment with all-trans-retinoic acid (ATRA) and anthracycline-based chemotherapy has led to major advances in the treatment of acute promyelocytic leukemia (APL).
  • METHODS: In this study, we reviewed the outcome of pediatric APL patients treated using a modified AIDA protocol at our institution.
  • RESULTS: Between May 1999 and December 2007, 23 patients were diagnosed with APL at the Department of Pediatrics, Saint Mary's Hospital, The Catholic University of Korea.
  • Two patients relapsed and died, and another patient died of pneumonia unrelated to APL.
  • Four patients (17%) were diagnosed with ATRA syndrome, and all patients showed resolution of symptoms.
  • CONCLUSION: A modified AIDA protocol for the treatment of childhood APL leads to improved EFS and OS, with limited ATRA syndrome-associated toxicity.

  • [Title] Hematopoietic stem cell transplant for pediatric acute promyelocytic leukemia.
  • The optimal form of treatment for children with relapsed or refractory acute promyelocytic leukemia (APL) is unclear.
  • We retrospectively analyzed the results of 32 (11 autologous, 21 allogeneic) hematopoietic stem cell transplants (HSCT) performed for children originally treated on either the Eastern Cooperative Group E2491 Trial or the Cancer and Leukemia Group B C9710 Trial and subsequently diagnosed with relapsed or refractory APL.
  • This data demonstrates that autologous and allogeneic HSCT are both effective therapies for treatment of children with relapsed or refractory APL.
  • Autologous HSCT is associated with a low incidence of TRM, whereas allogeneic HSCT is associated with a low incidence of relapse, suggesting a strong GVL effect against residual APL.

  • [Title] Retrospective study of arsenic trioxide for childhood acute promyelocytic leukemia in China: a single-center experience.
  • There are very limited reports about childhood acute promyelocytic leukemia (APL), especially about arsenic trioxide (ATO) treatment in both induction and post-remission regimens.
  • 35 newly diagnosed APL patients received ATO treatment in our center and the clinical course as well as the outcome of them was investigated.
  • The dose of intravenous ATO was 0.15-0.17 mg/kg per day, only one patient got 0.33 mg/kg per day, maximum dose was 10 mg per day in induction therapy with minimal chemotherapy treatment (CT) for hyperleukocytosis.
  • Anthracycline or anthracycline-based CT was used for consolidation therapy and followed by 0.10-0.15 mg/kg per day ATO treatment in maintenance therapy.
  • The continuous detection for morphology of bone marrow and PML-RARa were necessary for administrating CT or not.
  • This regimen of ATO treatment both in induction and post-remission therapy was effective and safe for childhood APL to get long-term survival.

  • The aim of this study was to determine the efficacy and safety of treatment of pediatric acute promyelocytic leukemia (APL) with single-agent arsenic trioxide (ATO).
  • A total of 19 children (< or = 15 years of age) with newly diagnosed APL were treated with single-agent ATO for remission induction and postremission therapy.
  • With a median follow-up of 53 months (range, 23-76 months), the calculated 5-year overall survival and event-free survival were 83.9% and 72.7%, respectively, which are comparable with results achieved by the use of ATRA plus chemotherapy, which is the standard therapy for APL.
  • The results indicate the high efficacy and safety of single-agent ATO regimens in the treatment of children with de novo APL.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • [Title] Subdural hemorrhage in a child with acute promyelocytic leukemia presenting as subtle headache.
  • Acute promyelocytic leukemia (APL) is a distinct subtype of acute myeloid leukemia (AML) and is rare in children (< 10% of childhood AML).
  • We report a 12-year-old child with APL who suffered a subdural hemorrhage and initially presented with a subtle headache mistaken as the side effect of all-trans-retinoic acid (ATRA).
  • Blood component therapy and a pediatric dosage of ATRA (25 mg/m2/day) combined with idarubicin as induction chemotherapy were administered in the first week, but the bleeding diathesis persisted and DIC profiles showed no improvement.
  • This case suggests that the ATRA dosage for pediatric APL patients must be modified according to clinical condition.
  • Emergency brain imaging should be considered in APL patients with signs of IICP to distinguish intracranial lesions from ATRA complications.

  • Molecularly, the disease is characterized by a fusion protein, promyelocytic leukemia (PML)-retinoic acid receptor (RAR)-alpha that results from a balanced reciprocal translocation between the PML gene on chromosome 15 and the RAR-alpha (RARA) gene on chromosome 17.
  • A major advance in the field of APL treatment has been the use of all-trans-retinoic acid (ATRA).
  • Advances in the treatment of APL have taken this form of AML from a disease with significant morbidity and mortality to one with an excellent outcome.
  • Recent trials have shown a role for arsenic trioxide in both newly diagnosed and relapsed APL.

  • [Title] Retrospective analysis of 65 Chinese children with acute promyelocytic leukemia: a single center experience.
  • BACKGROUND: There are very limited data reported about childhood acute promyelocytic leukemia (APL), especially with arsenic trioxide (As2O3) treatment.
  • We review the clinical course and treatment outcome of 65 children APL.
  • PROCEDURE: Between January 1999 and December 2005, 65 children (<18 years) with newly diagnosed APL were treated.
  • Forty patients were given ATRA alone (group 1, G1), 8 patients were given As2O3 alone (group 2, G2), 15 patients (group 3, G3) were treated with combination of ATRA and As2O3.
  • CONCLUSION: As2O3 is an effective and well tolerable therapy for children with APL and it may be used in those who have dose limiting side effects of ATRA, but also for those with newly diagnosed or relapsed APL.

  • [Title] ider(17)(q10)t(15;17) associated with relapse and poor prognosis in a pediatric patient with acute promyelocytic leukemia.
  • Although acute promyelocytic leukemia (APL) has been regarded as a serious medical emergency associated with disseminated intravascular coagulopathy or subsequent mortality, it is now considered a curable leukemia that is particularly sensitive to treatment with all-trans retinoic acid combined with chemotherapy.
  • However, it is not clear whether additional chromosomal abnormalities in APL patients directly influence the prognosis or treatment response. ider(17)(q10)t(15;17)(q22;q21) has mostly been reported in adult APL patients, and only three cases of pediatric APL associated with ider(17)(q10)t(15;17) showing poor prognosis have been described in the literature.
  • Here, we report the close follow-up (clinical and laboratory) data of a pediatric APL case associated with ider(17)(q10)t(15;17).
  • This patient had APL relapse from the same clone 15 months after morphological remission.
  • Furthermore, despite subsequent chemotherapy, the patient died 16 months after the initial APL diagnosis.
  • Although based on a limited amount of data (four pediatric APL cases), such results in pediatric APL patients may provide important insight into the relationship between ider(17)(q10)t(15;17) and poor prognosis.
  • However, further well-designed case-control studies are necessary to determine the treatment response and prognosis in pediatric or adult APL patients with ider(17)(q10)t(15;17).

  • OBJECTIVE: Acute promyelocytic leukemia (APL) is a specific type of hematopoietic malignancy, accounting for 10% of the de novo acute myeloid leukemia (AML).
  • The data on long-term outcome of APL in children are limited.
  • The aim of this study was to investigate the clinical biological features, diagnosis, prognosis and long-term survival of childhood APL.
  • METHODS: A total of 46 children with newly diagnosed APL from April 1998 to October 2005 were enrolled into this study.
  • Five patients with RT-PCR positive for PML/RARalpha S (short) subtype died eventually although all of them achieved CR, but none of the 13 patients with PML/RARalpha L (long) subtype died.
  • CONCLUSIONS: Remission induction therapy with ATRA + DNR or THP is effective and safe for newly diagnosed childhood APL.
  • The remission induction therapy combined with chemotherapy containing high/intermediate dose Ara-C can improve the long-term survival rates of APL patients.
  • High WBC count and S subtype of PML-RARa are two poor prognostic factors for children with APL.

  • OBJECTIVE: To analyse the clinical outcome and the prognostic factor of childhood acute myeloid leukemia (AML).
  • METHODS: Disease-free survival (DFS), event-free survival (EFS) and overall survival (OS) rates were estimated by Kaplan-Meier method and prognostic factors were evaluated by Cox regression with SPSS in 141 childhood AML in our hospital from August 1995 to July 2004.
  • The patients were divided into 2 groups: acute promyelocytic leukemia (APL) as group A and AML other than APL as group B.
  • Multivariate analysis demonstrated that higher bone marrow blast cell percentage at diagnosis, CR after more than one course of chemotherapy and less than six courses of consolidation chemotherapy were risk prognostic factors in childhood AML other than APL (P < 0.05).
  • CONCLUSION: The prognosis of childhood APL is better, while of childhood t(8;21) AML is no better than other FAB subtypes.

  • Currently, it documents a standardised clinical, laboratory and therapeutic data of 133 children with antiphospholipid antibodies (aPL)-related thrombosis from 14 countries.
  • The priority projects for future research of the Ped-APS Registry include prospective enrollment of new patients with aPL-related thrombosis, assessment of differences between the paediatric and adult APS, evaluation of proinflammatory genotype as a risk factor for APS manifestations in childhood and evaluation of patients with isolated nonthrombotic aPL-related manifestations.

  • The presence of aPL in pediatric SLE can modify the disease expression and may be an important predictor of the development of irreversible organ damage.
  • Two recently established international registries of neonates and children with APS provide a good opportunity to conduct large, prospective studies on the clinical significance of aPL and long-term outcome of pediatric APS.

  • APS is recognized increasingly as a leading cause of vascular thrombosis in the pediatric population.
  • Because the coincident prothrombotic factors that are common in adults have little or no impact in children, pediatric patients with APS constitute a suitable sample to investigate the relationship of aPL with the associated clinical manifestations, such as thrombocytopenia, hemolytic anemia, chorea, and livedo reticularis, and the specificities of aPL that are more linked to thrombosis.
  • On the other hand, because of the high frequency of infectious processes in early life, children may have a greater prevalence of nonpathogenic and transient aPL.
  • For these reasons, the diagnostic and therapeutic approach to APS in childhood may be different from that for adults.
  • Because of the rarity of aPL-related thrombosis in children, the natural history and optimal management can be defined only through large, multicenter, controlled studies.
  • A internet-based registry for pediatric patients with APS (Ped-APS Register) has been recently established as part of the activities of the Euro-aPL Forum and the Lupus Working Group of the Pediatric Rheumatology European Society.
  • This registry is aimed to obtain information on APS in childhood, particularly regarding association of aPL with clinical manifestations, specificity of aPL, impact of treatment and long-term outcome (http://www.med.ub.es/MIMMUN/FORUM/PEDIATRIC.HTM).

  • We discuss the main scenarios faced when dealing with children with aPL--asymtomatic aPL, primary APS and secondary APS.
  • We discuss the manifestations and management of childhood aPL--asymptomatic aPL, primary and secondary APS elucidated with case histories.
  • Insufficient safety data on anticoagulation and limited information on the effects of warfarin, use of aspirin, duration and intensity of anticoagulation are some of the unresolved issues in managing aPL and APS in children.

  • [Title] Favourable outcome of patients with childhood acute promyelocytic leukaemia after treatment with reduced cumulative anthracycline doses.
  • Acute promyelocytic leukaemia (APL) treatment often includes high cumulative doses of anthracyclines, which can cause long-term cardiotoxicity.
  • Here, we report the favourable outcome in 81 paediatric APL patients treated according to the consecutive acute myeloid leukaemia-Berlin/Frankfurt/Muenster (AML-BFM) trials -93/-98/-2004 with an anthracycline-cytarabine regimen in combination with all-trans-retinoid acid (ATRA).
  • Salvage treatment was effective in 7/9 patients (78%) with relapsed APL, who now are long-term survivors after second line combination treatment with arsenic trioxide (4/7 patients) and stem cell transplantation (5/7 patients).
  • Our results demonstrate that - combined with ATRA - a lower cumulative anthracycline dose can be used safely to maintain high cure rates and promote the reduction of long-term sequelae, such as cardiotoxicity in APL patients.

  • [Title] Improved treatment results for childhood acute myeloid leukemia in Taiwan.
  • To improve treatment results for children with de novo acute myeloid leukemia (AML), we introduced a novel protocol, Taiwan Pediatric Oncology Group-AML-97A, for AML other than acute promyelocytic leukemia (APL), for which modified conventional protocols were used.
  • From January 1, 1997, to December 31, 2002, 141 children younger than 17 years old with de novo AML were enrolled.
  • In total, 117 patients with non-APL AML were treated with induction therapy of idarubicin and cytarabine (Ara-C), postremission therapy with high-dose Ara-C - containing regimens for four monthly courses, and moderate-dose therapy with idarubicin and Ara-C for four monthly courses.
  • The first 19 patients with APL were treated with all-trans retinoic acid, idarubicin and Ara-C, with the remaining five patients receiving all-trans retinoic acid and idarubicin, followed by maintenance therapy for 2 years.
  • The remission rate in the AML-97A study was 90%, the 5-year survival 51 +/- 5.3% (s.e.) and the 5-year event-free survival 50 +/- 4.8%; for APL, these were 100%, 86 +/- 7.0, and 75 +/- 9.8%.

  • [Title] A comprehensive review of acute promyelocytic leukemia in children.
  • The outcome of patients with acute promyelocytic leukemia (APL) has substantially improved since the successful introduction of tretinoin, and nowadays combining tretinoin with chemotherapy is potentially curative for at least 70-75% of patients with newly diagnosed APL.
  • In most pediatric series, APL represents < or = 10% of childhood acute myelogenous leukemia.
  • APL in children is more common in girls and in obese children.
  • It is characterized by a higher incidence of hyperleukocytosis, an increased incidence of microgranular morphology and by more frequent occurrence of the PML/RARalpha isoforms bcr 2 and bcr 3 compared to adults.
  • Tretinoin-based therapy is curative for the majority of children with APL.
  • Recent data indicate that > or = 2 negative RT-PCR assays for PML/RARalpha on bone marrow performed at least 1 month apart after completing therapy are strongly associated with long-term remissions, while conversion to PCR positivity for PML/RARalpha during remission is highly predictive of impending relapse.
  • Data from recent studies in adults and limited data from children show that arsenic trioxide is the single most effective agent in APL and deserves immediate study in newly diagnosed children in an effort to further improve prognosis and to limit exposure to conventional cytotoxic chemotherapy.

  • From November 1, 1995 to July 31, 2004, 49 children with de novo acute myeloid leukemia (AML) were treated at our institution.
  • Forty-two patients with AML other than acute promyelocytic leukemia (non-APL) were treated consecutively with 2 novel protocols: Mackay Memorial Hospital (MMH)-AML-96, designed as a pilot phase, and Taiwan Pediatric Oncology Group (TPOG)-AML-97A, on the basis of MMH-AML-96 with minor modifications.
  • Six patients with APL were treated consecutively with 2 protocols, TPOG-APL-97 and APL-2001.
  • The 5-year overall survival was 64%+/-6.9% (SE), and the 5-year event-free survival was 60%+/-7.1%; for non-APL AML, the rates were 62%+/-7.5% and 59%+/-7.6%; for APL, 83+/-15.2 and 67+/-19.3%.

  • In contrast with adults, however, transient nonthrombogenic antiphospholipid (aPL) antibodies are seen more commonly, usually after childhood infections.
  • In those with "true" aPL antibodies, recurrent thrombotic events seem less frequent than in adults, perhaps reflecting the less prothrombotic hemostatic state of childhood.
  • A pediatric APS registry such as the Ped-APS Register is more easy to organize and can yield informative data.

  • [Title] Pediatric antiphospholipid syndrome.
  • APS is rare in the pediatric age, but it represents an interesting phenomenon because most of the known "second hit" risk factors such as atherosclerosis, smoking, hypertension, contraceptive hormonal treatment, and pregnancy are not present in childhood.
  • On the other hand, the increased frequency of infectious processes in the childhood age is likely responsible for the relatively high prevalence of non-pathogenic and transient aPL.
  • Such points raise the problem of a different diagnosis or monitoring approach in pediatric APS.
  • Of particular interest is the special entity of neonatal APS, which represents an in vivo model of acquired autoimmune disease, in which transplacentally acquired aPL cause thrombosis in the newborn.
  • International registries for pediatric and neonatal APS are currently in place; epidemiologic, clinical, and laboratory re-search will help to shed light on all the still obscure aspects of this fascinating but rare disorder in the very young.
  • Finally, treatment is less aggressive overall in pediatric APS, given the reluctance to anticoagulate children over the long term.
  • Studies on the outcome of pediatric APS and the relative risks of prolonged anticoagulation in children are necessary to determine the type and duration of anticoagulation therapy.

  • The annual incident rate of pediatric acute myeloid leukemia (AML) is now 10 per million in Japan, against 5 to 9 per million in the USA and Europe.
  • Overall long-term survival has now been achieved for more than 50% of pediatric patients with AML in the USA and in Europe.
  • The prognostic factors of pediatric AML were analyzed,and patients with AML were classified according to prognostic factors.
  • The t(15;17), inv(16) and t(8;21) have emerged as predictors of good prognosis in children with AML.
  • In addition to chromosomal deletions, FLT 3/ITD identifies pediatric patients with a particularly poor prognosis.
  • APL can be distinguished from other subtypes of AML by virtue of its excellent response and overall outcome as a result of differentiation therapy with ATRA.
  • With the consideration of quality of life (QOL), risk-adapted therapy was introduced in the AML 99 trial conducted by the Japanese Childhood AML Cooperative Study Group.
  • A high survival rate of 79% at 3 years was achieved for childhood de novo AML in the AML 99 trial.
  • To evaluate the efficacy and safety of the treatment strategy according to risk stratification based on leukemia cell biology and response to the initial induction therapy in children with AML, the Japanese Pediatric Leukemia/Lymphoma Study Group (JPLSG) has organized multi-center phase II trials in children with newly diagnosed AML.
