- 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...
The purpose of this study is to determine the clinical benefit of ASP2215 therapy in patients with FMS-like tyrosine kinase (FLT3) mutated acute myeloid leukemia (AML) who are refractory t...
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.
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...
Acute myeloid leukemia (AML) is the most common acute leukemia in adults and is often resistant to conventional therapies. The MYC oncogene is commonly overexpressed in AML but has remained an elusive...
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 ...
Session 2 of the workshop focused on cases of acute myeloid leukemia (AML) with gene mutations in the setting of a normal karyotype.
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
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.

Leukemia is a type of cancer of the blood or bone marrow characterized by an abnormal increase of immature white blood cells called "blasts". Leukemia is a broad term covering a spectrum of diseases. In turn, it is part of the even broader grou...
