AML is a clinically heterogeneous disease with about 200,000 new cases per year worldwide. Subgrouping of AML patients using karyotypic abnormalities provides for more individualized patient prognosis. However, in almost half of AML cases the karyotype appears normal and provides no guidance for the physician. A discovery by Drs. Falini and Mecucci, at the Institute of Hematology at the University of Perugia in Italy, showed that many AML patients have mutations in the NPM1 gene, and these mutations are a marker for more favorable clinical outcomes.

The National Comprehensive Cancer Network (www.nccn.org), which sets clinical standards for cancer treatment, has included testing for NPM mutations in their clinical practice guidelines (NCCN Guidelines™ Version 2.2011 – Acute Myeloid Leukemia). NPM1 mutation analysis helps physicians to select more appropriate treatment strategies for AML patients.
