Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions
Leukemia, Myelomonocytic, Chronic
A myelodysplastic-myeloproliferative disease characterized by monocytosis, increased monocytes in the bone marrow, variable degrees of dysplasia, but an absence of immature granulocytes in the blood.
A chronic leukemia characterized by a large number of circulating prolymphocytes. It can arise spontaneously or as a consequence of transformation of CHRONIC LYMPHOCYTIC LEUKEMIA.
Leukemia, Lymphocytic, Chronic, B-cell
A chronic leukemia characterized by abnormal B-lymphocytes and often generalized lymphadenopathy. In patients presenting predominately with blood and bone marrow involvement it is called chronic lymphocytic leukemia (CLL); in those predominately with enlarged lymph nodes it is called small lymphocytic lymphoma. These terms represent spectrums of the same disease.
Leukemia, Myeloid, Accelerated Phase
The phase of chronic myeloid leukemia following the chronic phase (LEUKEMIA, MYELOID, CHRONIC-PHASE), where there are increased systemic symptoms, worsening cytopenias, and refractory LEUKOCYTOSIS.
Leukemia, Myelomonocytic, Acute
A pediatric acute myeloid leukemia involving both myeloid and monocytoid precursors. At least 20% of non-erythroid cells are of monocytic origin.
The relatively homogenous clinical features and poor prognosis of chronic myelomonocytic leukemia (CMML) are associated with a molecular heterogeneity, with various mutations impacting several converg...
Next-Generation Sequencing Technology Reveals a Characteristic Pattern of Molecular Mutations in 72.8% of Chronic Myelomonocytic Leukemia by Detecting Frequent Alterations in TET2, CBL, RAS, and RUNX1.
PURPOSE Chronic myelomonocytic leukemia (CMML) is a clonal hematopoietic malignancy that is characterized by features of both a myeloproliferative neoplasm and a myelodysplastic syndrome. Thus far, da...
Chronic myelomonocytic leukemia (CMML) and atypical chronic myeloid leukemia (aCML) are distinct, yet related, entities of myelodysplastic/myeloproliferative neoplasms (MDS/MPN) characterized by morph...
The purpose of this study is to evaluate the level of a specific protein (PTEN) in the cancer cells of chronic myelomonocytic leukemia (CMML) patients. This protein might be involved in th...
RATIONALE: Doxercalciferol may improve low blood cell counts and decrease the need for blood transfusions and may be an effective treatment for myelodysplastic syndrome or chronic myelomon...
The purpose of this study is to determine the effects (good and bad) of Gleevec in patients with BCR-negative myeloproliferative disorders including myelofibrosis with myeloid metaplasia a...
RATIONALE: Sunitinib may stop the growth of abnormal cells by blocking some of the enzymes needed for cell growth. PURPOSE: This phase II trial is studying how well sunitinib works in tre...
17-N-Allylamino-17-Demethoxygeldanamycin and Cytarabine in Treating Patients With Relapsed or Refractory Acute Myeloid Leukemia, Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia, Chronic Myelogenous Leukemia, Chronic Myelomonocytic Leukemia, or Myelodysplastic Syndromes
RATIONALE: Drugs used in chemotherapy, such as 17-N-allylamino-17-demethoxygeldanamycin and cytarabine, work in different ways to stop the growth of cancer cells, either by killing the cel...
