Biomarkers in Samples From Patients With Down Syndrome and Acute Megakaryoblastic Leukemia

2014-08-27 03:13:07 | BioPortfolio

Summary

RATIONALE: Studying samples of blood or tissue from patients with cancer in the laboratory may help doctors learn more about changes that occur in DNA and identify biomarkers related to cancer.

PURPOSE: This research study is studying biomarkers in samples from patients with Down syndrome and acute megakaryoblastic leukemia.

Description

OBJECTIVES:

- Determine whether megakaryocyte differentiation agents comprising a Rho kinase inhibitor and a JAK3 inhibitor can lead to proliferation arrest, polyploidization, and terminal differentiation of blasts in specimens from patients with Down syndrome and acute megakaryoblastic leukemia.

OUTLINE: Cryopreserved specimens are cultured and treated in vivo (in mice) and in vitro with megakaryocytic differentiation agents comprising a Rho kinase inhibitor and a JAK3 inhibitor.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

A lymphoid leukemia characterized by a profound LYMPHOCYTOSIS with or without LYMPHADENOPATHY, hepatosplenomegaly, frequently rapid progression, and short survival. It was formerly called T-cell chronic lymphocytic leukemia.

A genus in the family RETROVIRIDAE consisting of exogenous horizontally-transmitted viruses found in a few groups of mammals. Infections caused by these viruses include human B- or adult T-cell leukemia/lymphoma (LEUKEMIA-LYMPHOMA, T-CELL, ACUTE, HTLV-I-ASSOCIATED), and bovine leukemia (ENZOOTIC BOVINE LEUKOSIS). The type species is LEUKEMIA VIRUS, BOVINE.

The simultaneous analysis of multiple samples of TISSUES or CELLS from BIOPSY or in vitro culture that have been arranged in an array format on slides or microchips.

The analysis of an activity, procedure, method, technique, or business to determine what must be accomplished and how the necessary operations may best be accomplished.

Body of knowledge related to the use of organisms, cells or cell-derived constituents for the purpose of developing products which are technically, scientifically and clinically useful. Alteration of biologic function at the molecular level (i.e., GENETIC ENGINEERING) is a central focus; laboratory methods used include TRANSFECTION and CLONING technologies, sequence and structure analysis algorithms, computer databases, and gene and protein structure function analysis and prediction.
