6 Poor Treatment Outcomes of Young (<60 Years) African American Patients (Pts) Diagnosed with Acute Myeloid Leukemia (AML) (Alliance)

Published date:
To characterize molecular features we performed targeted sequencing of 81 genes in 1,339 AML pts treated on frontline Cancer and Leukemia Group B/Alliance for Clinical Trials in Oncology (Alliance) protocols based on standard intensity cytarabine/anthracycline induction...However, AA pts harboring FLT3-ITD or IDH2 mutations had shorter OS compared with wild-type pts (FLT3-ITD, HR=1.95, P=.03; IDH2, HR=2.17, P=.008).

Studying Tissue and Blood Samples From Patients With Acute Myeloid Leukemia

...Determine the frequency of specific gene markers (i.e., FLT3 ITD, CBF, MLL PTD, NPM1, KIT, RAS, CEBPA, WT1, JAK2, RUNX1, TET2, CBL, IDH1 and IDH2, ASXL1, mutations, aberrant BAALC, ERG, FLT3, MN1, EVI1, and APP) over-expression and levels of promoter methylation of specific genes (e.g., ESR1, WIT1, P15, MYOD1, ID4, DPK) in defined cytogenetic subgroups of patients with acute myeloid leukemia (AML)...
