FLAG+Ida With G-CSF Priming for Patients Younger Than 60 Years With Resistant AML
- To determine the feasibility of fludarabine and cytarabine as continuous infusion plus idarubicin with granulocyte-colony stimulating factor priming for patients with resistant acute myeloid leukemia other than acute promyelocytic leukemia
- The feasibility will be evaluated in terms of toxicities, complete remission rate, duration of complete remission, disease-free survival, and overall survival.

This is an international multicenter open label randomized phase III trial in children with relapsed and refractory acute myeloid leukemia (AML) such a disease. The main purpose of this s...
RATIONALE: Diagnostic procedures, such as genetic testing, may improve the ability to detect acute myeloid leukemia and determine the extent of disease. PURPOSE: Diagnostic study to try t...
RATIONALE: Vaccines made from peptides that are found on leukemia cells may make the body build an immune response and kill cancer cells. Combining vaccine therapy with the immune adjuvant...
The purpose of this study is to determine the side effects of the study drug, clofarabine, when given by mouth to patients with acute myeloid leukemia (AML), in remission.
RATIONALE: Drugs such as flt3L may stimulate a person's immune system and help kill cancer cells. It is not yet known if flt3L is effective in treating acute myeloid leukemia. PURPOSE: Ra...
Acute myeloid leukemia (AML) is a hematological malignancy of myeloid progenitor cells that disrupt normal hematopoiesis. Current chemotherapy regimens result in complete remission in many cases; howe...
To describe the current management of de-novo pediatric acute myeloid leukemia (AML), excluding promyelocytic leukemia and myeloid neoplasms of patients with constitutional trisomy 21. The biology of ...
The anesthetic implications of acute leukemia in pregnancy have not been reported. We describe the anesthetic management of a laboring primigravida at 34 weeks' gestation with new-onset acute myeloid ...
Diagnosis of myeloid malignancies with erythroid hyperplasia may sometimes confront hematologists with a mathematical dilemma, if cut-off criteria of blast percentage as proposed by the World Health O...
We studied 1696 patients (18 to 61 years) with acute myeloid leukemia for ASXL1 mutations and identified these mutations in 103 (6.1%) patients. ASXL1 mutations were associated with older age (P
Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions
A pediatric acute myeloid leukemia involving both myeloid and monocytoid precursors. At least 20% of non-erythroid cells are of monocytic origin.
A rare acute myeloid leukemia characterized by abnormal EOSINOPHILS in the bone marrow.
An acute myeloid leukemia in which abnormal PROMYELOCYTES predominate. It is frequently associated with DISSEMINATED INTRAVASCULAR COAGULATION.
An acute leukemia exhibiting cell features characteristic of both the myeloid and lymphoid lineages and probably arising from MULTIPOTENT STEM CELLS.
Clonal expansion of myeloid blasts in bone marrow, blood, and other tissue. Myeloid leukemias develop from changes in cells that normally produce NEUTROPHILS; BASOPHILS; EOSINOPHILS; and MONOCYTES.
