Immunotherapies targeting CD19 (blinatumomab) and CD22 (inotuzumab ozogamicin) have demonstrated higher complete response rates and improved survival compared with chemotherapy in relapsed/refractory acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL), and are now standard of care in the relapsed setting. However, most adult patients still die of ALL despite these therapies, with or without hematopoietic stem cell transplant. At the NCCN 2019 Annual Congress: Hematologic Malignancies, Dr. Jae Park summarized clinical data from key trials of novel immunotherapies in ALL and reviewed evidence-based treatment approaches for adults with relapsed/refractory B-cell ALL.

Our previous studies have demonstrated that a previously unrecognized role of CFTR in hematopoiesis and acute leukemia. Here, we show that CFTR inhibitor CFTR-inh172 possesses ability to inhibit human...
The article presents results of assessment of seasonal dynamics of morbidity rate of acute lymphoblastic leukemia among population younger than 29 years old in Azerbaijan. The materials of Scientific ...
An infectious trigger for childhood acute lymphoblastic leukemia is hypothesized and we assessed the association between the rate, type, and critical exposure period for infections and the development...
Thromboembolism is a serious toxicity of acute lymphoblastic leukemia treatment, and contributes to substantial morbidity and mortality. Several single nucleotide polymorphisms have been associated wi...
Patients with relapsed or refractory (R/R) T-cell acute lymphoblastic leukemia/lymphoma (T-ALL) have dismal outcomes. Preclinical studies have suggested that T-ALL cells are sensitive to BCL2 inhibiti...
This phase I trial studies the side effects and best dose of palbociclib when given together with dexamethasone in treating participants with B-cell acute lymphoblastic leukemia that has c...
The purpose of this study is to identify a safe and tolerable dose of BMS-906024, either alone or in combination with Dexamethasone in subjects with T-cell acute lymphoblastic leukemia or ...
To study the genomics with cell cycle and lymphocyte differentiation in disease, remission and relapse of childhood acute lymphoblastic leukemia. Then correlate these data with age, white ...
This randomized phase III trial compares how well combination chemotherapy works when given with or without bortezomib in treating patients with newly diagnosed T-cell acute lymphoblastic ...
The major aim of this research is to assess the feasibility, safety and effectiveness of CD19 CAR-T Cell Therapy for Relapsed/ Refractory Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia/ B cell Lymphoma pati...
A pyrimidine nucleoside analog that is used mainly in the treatment of leukemia, especially acute non-lymphoblastic leukemia. Cytarabine is an antimetabolite antineoplastic agent that inhibits the synthesis of DNA. Its actions are specific for the S phase of the cell cycle. It also has antiviral and immunosuppressant properties. (From Martindale, The Extra Pharmacopoeia, 30th ed, p472)
A leukemia/lymphoma found predominately in children and adolescents and characterized by a high number of lymphoblasts and solid tumor lesions. Frequent sites involve LYMPH NODES, skin, and bones. It most commonly presents as leukemia.
A tyrosine kinase inhibitor and ANTINEOPLASTIC AGENT that inhibits the BCR-ABL kinase created by chromosome rearrangements in CHRONIC MYELOID LEUKEMIA and ACUTE LYMPHOBLASTIC LEUKEMIA, as well as PDG-derived tyrosine kinases that are overexpressed in gastrointestinal stromal tumors.
An acute leukemia exhibiting cell features characteristic of both the myeloid and lymphoid lineages and probably arising from MULTIPOTENT STEM CELLS.
A leukemia/lymphoma found predominately in children and young adults and characterized LYMPHADENOPATHY and THYMUS GLAND involvement. It most frequently presents as a lymphoma, but a leukemic progression in the bone marrow is common.
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...
