Tosedostat OPAL Study in Acute Myeloid Leukemia Published in Lancet Oncology
Date:3/4/2013

ited States in 2012.1 As of January 2008 an estimated 30,993 people were living with (or were in remission from) AML.  Although AML can occur at any age, adults aged 60 years and older are more likely to develop the disease than younger people.2 AML is a cancer characterized by the rapid growth of abnormal white blood cells that accumulate in the bone marrow and interfere with the production of normal blood cells. AML may develop from the progression of other diseases such as myelodysplastic syndrome (MDS), a blood cancer that also affects the bone marrow leading to a decrease in circulating red blood cells. AML is the most common acute leukemia affecting adults, and its incidence increases with age. The symptoms of AML are caused by replacement of normal bone marrow with leukemic cells, which causes a drop in red blood cells, platelets, and normal white blood cells leading to infections and bleeding. AML progresses rapidly and is typically fatal within weeks or months if left untreated. Although a substantial proportion of younger individuals who develop AML can be cured, AML in the elderly typically responds poorly to standard therapy with few complete remissions.
