AACR honors Hagop Kantarjian for outstanding clinical research
Date:4/8/2013

bine for myelodysplastic syndromes, potentially lethal blood malignancies that also can advance to acute myeloid leukemia (AML), approved for MDS in 2006.

  • FDA approval of ruxolitinib for myelofibrosis, an incurable and eventually lethal scarring of the bone marrow, the first approved treatment for the disease and the first to target the JAK2 protein. All clinical trials for the drug were led at MD Anderson.

    "As with many individual awards, this honor reflects the efforts and accomplishments of MD Anderson's Department of Leukemia, which includes outstanding investigators across the full spectrum of leukemia," Kantarjian said.

    Kantarjian has mentored many internationally recognized experts in the field, Hong said, many of whom are in the Department of Leukemia.

    Overall during the past 12 years the department has been instrumental in discovering new, more effective combination treatments and in U.S. Food and Drug Administration approval of new drugs for CML (5), MDS and AML, ALL, chronic lymphocytic leukemia and myelofibrosis.

    Two of the eight programs chosen for MD Anderson's Moon Shots Program are from the department. One addresses chronic lymphocytic leukemia and the other myelodysplastic syndromes and acute myeloid leukemia. The program is an unprecedented effort to accelerate the pace of converting scientific discoveries into clinical advances to reduce cancer deaths.

    Kantarjian is also the Kelcie Margaret Kana Research Chair and associate vice president for global academic programs at MD Anderson. He received his medical degree from The American University of Beirut in Lebanon and then completed a fellowship at MD Anderson and joined the faculty in 1983. He has received numerous accolades, including the Outstanding Service to Mankind Award from the Leukemia Society of America.

    Kantarjian, a member of the AACR since 1985, was on the editorial board of Clinical Cancer Research and serves
