Rates of Transcript Variants in Chronic Myeloid Leukemia Associated With Sex and Age

Different fusion genes of BCR-ABL1 are all leukemogenic for acute lymphoblastic leukemia or chronic myeloid leukemia (CML). According to results published in Leukemia, the particular transcripts present in patients with CML are correlated with sex and age and are not constant worldwide. This study systematically assessed the frequency of these leukemogenic fusion genes in patients…


Tibsovo Approved to Treat Newly Diagnosed AML With IDH1 Mutation

The FDA has expanded the indication for Tibsovo to include treatment of newly diagnosed acute myeloid leukemia with a susceptible isocitrate dehydrogenase-1 (IDH1) mutation as detected by an FDA-approved test in adult patients who are ≥75 years old or who have comorbidities that preclude use of intensive induction chemotherapy.

Cytogenetic Abnormalities Provide Prognostic Value in Predicting Acute Myeloid Leukemia Outcomes

Specific cytogenetic abnormalities are associated with patient outcomes after allogeneic hematopoietic stem cell transplantation (HSCT) for acute myeloid leukemia (AML) and may have prognostic value, according to a study published in Leukemia. A multinational research team conducted a retrospective analysis of clinical outcomes of patients with AML undergoing allogeneic HSCT while taking into account recurring…
