Studies assess genetics, modified treatment to improve outcomes, reduce toxicity
Date:12/8/2012

RAC2, and HFE genes had up to a three-fold higher risk of developing heart failure after transplant; these genes are responsible for key proteins that regulate the metabolism of anthracyclines and defense against oxidative stress. Females with two or more genetic variations were at the highest risk of developing the conditions when compared to males with one or none of these variations. The discovery of these genetic variations supplements previously identified clinical variables known to affect a transplant survivor's heart health.

"Following this study we now have a much better profile of those transplant survivors who are likely to develop heart failure," said Saro Armenian, DO, MPH, lead author and Assistant Professor in the Division of Outcomes Research and Medical Director of the Pediatric Survivorship Clinic in the Childhood Cancer Survivorship Program at City of Hope in Duarte, Calif. "Armed with these insights, we can now create better screening measures and perhaps even tailor intervention strategies based on a patients' genetic makeup, minimizing long-term transplant-related toxicity and making a tremendous difference in the long-term health of these patients."

Dr. Armenian will present this study in an oral presentation on Monday, December 10, at 2:45 p.m. EST at the Georgia World Congress Center in Room C108-C109, Level 1, Building C.

Daunorubicin or Not During the Induction Treatment of Childhood Standard-Risk B-Cell Precursor Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia (SR-BCP-ALL): The Randomized Fralle 2000-A Protocol[Abstract 135]

New data demonstrate that omitting the chemotherapy drug daunorubicin from an initial treatment regimen for children with standard-risk acute lymphocytic leukemia (ALL) does not reduce survival outcomes, suggesting that these children may be able to achieve positive outcomes without having to endure
