Genetic and Proteomic Advances Pave the Way for Next-Generation Leukemia Therapies
Date:12/10/2011

(19 months vs. 34 months on average in DA arm vs. DAGO arm).

The treatment protocol had some toxicity, as the rate of fatal adverse events possibly attributable to treatment was 6.7 percent in the DA group and 8.7 percent in the DAGO group. Prolonged grade 3 or greater thrombocytopenia was observed in 19 DAGO patients, and three episodes of veno-occlusive disease or sinusoidal obstructive syndrome (liver vein blockages) were observed in the DAGO arm, two noted as fatal.  There were no differences between the arms in the incidence of severe sepsis or in the rate of intensive care unit admission during the course of therapy.

"Research has demonstrated that GO has very potent anti-cancer properties, and with this study we have identified a dosing regimen that gives patients the therapeutic benefit without some of the toxicities previously reported at higher doses," said lead author Sylvie Castaigne, MD, Professor in the Department of Hematology at Hopital de Versailles in Versailles, France. "Specialists treating AML have not been offered a new therapeutic option for several decades, and with this research we are encouraged that GO may be able to deliver better overall outcomes for these AML patients with limited alternatives."

Dr. Castaigne will present this study during the Plenary Scientific Session on Sunday, December 11, at 3:45 p.m. PST at the San Diego Convention Center in Hall AB.

Novel Chromosomal Rearrangements and Sequence Mutations in High-Risk Ph-Like Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia [Abstract 67]

A recent study focusing on a unique subtype of high-risk B-cell acute lymphocytic leukemia (ALL) has used advanced genome sequencing to identify new targets for the treatment of this deadly blood cancer.

ALL is the most common pediatric malignancy, representing almost one-third of all childhood cancers. In particular, relapsed B-cell
