Analysis of T Cell Metabolism in Relapsed AML Patients With DLIs and Bicanorm Treatment

2020-03-31 04:04:35 | BioPortfolio


In this study, the outcomes of relapsed AML patients receiving DLIs and Bicanorm (Sodium bicarbonate) were analyzed including T cell metabolism and immune phenotype.


Acute myeloid leukemia (AML) patients suffering from relapse after allogeneic hematopoietic cell transplantation (allo-HCT) have a poor survival outcome. Donor lymphocyte infusions (DLIs) to induce graft-versus-leukemia (GvL) effects have a limited survival benefit.

Extensive preclinical studies have shown a beneficial effect of sodium bicarbonate on metabolic fitness of leukemia-reactive T cells in GvL AML models. Therefore, the investigators aimed to investigate a potential benefit of Bicanorm (Sodium bicarbonate) treatment accompanying DLIs in relapsed AML patients. The investigators determined the metabolic and immune phenotype of T cells isolated from patients receiving DLIs before and after Bicanorm (Sodium bicarbonate) treatment.

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.
