Preclinical Studies Show Promise for Novel Antibody Therapy to Treat Acute Myeloid Leukemia (AML)
Date:12/10/2007

eated AML stem cells. The overall survival of treated engrafted mice was significantly improved with the median survival of control group 11.5 weeks versus 24 weeks for the antibody-treated group.

Secondly, 7G3 was administered to mice with established AML. Administration of the antibody to these mice reduced AML dissemination around the body of the mice. The ability of leukemic stem cells from mice treated in this way to reestablish leukemia as secondary transplants into other animals was markedly reduced.

In contrast, exposure to 7G3 had little effect on normal human bone marrow stem cells.

"These results show that 7G3 is able to target LSC's to prevent them from moving around and proliferating in the mice, while at the same time having little effect on normal blood cells," said Dr Lock at the ASH meeting today.

"This is a very exciting finding because it is one of the first drugs that has been designed to specifically target the LSC, rather than simply attacking the cancer cells proliferating in the blood and bone marrow. Hopefully this means that it can fight leukemia without many of the side effects of current drugs. It opens up an exciting new option for the treatment of AML," he said.
