The most reliable prognostic marker of acute myeloid leukemia(AML) is cytogenetics by karyotyping. According to cytogenetic results, the patients with AML are classified as better, intermediate and poor prognosis groups. The normal karyotype AML was reported in about 50% of all AML and classified as intermediate risk group. However, the patients with normal karyotype AML showed various prognosis. Therefore, the further studies about subgroup analysis of normal karyotype AML are needed. Recently, the understandings of human genome polypmorphism using SNP array have been accumulated. However, the advanced researches for clinical application are not enough.
The study design is a retrospective and single-center study. The patients with normal karyotyping AML who were diagnosed from 1994 to 2008 at Samsung Medical Center (South Korea) will be enrolled. The stored bone marrow samples of enrolled patients are used for genome wide scanning by SNP array.
The purpose of present study is to develop predictive pharmacogenemic biomarkers model associated wit clinical outcomes including efficacy and toxicity in patients with AML with normal karyotype treated with chemotherapy using pharmacogenetic SNP array. And secondly, to develop enrichment clinical trial based on predictive pharmacogenomic model.
Observational Model: Case-Only, Time Perspective: Retrospective

Form of leukemia characterized by an uncontrolled proliferation of the myeloid lineage and their precursors (MYELOID PROGENITOR CELLS) in the bone marrow and other sites.
Myeloid-lymphoid leukemia protein is a transcription factor that maintains high levels of HOMEOTIC GENE expression during development. The GENE for myeloid-lymphoid leukemia protein is commonly disrupted in LEUKEMIA and combines with over 40 partner genes to form FUSION ONCOGENE PROTEINS.
The phase of chronic myeloid leukemia following the chronic phase (LEUKEMIA, MYELOID, CHRONIC-PHASE), where there are increased systemic symptoms, worsening cytopenias, and refractory LEUKOCYTOSIS.
Clonal hematopoetic disorder caused by an acquired genetic defect in PLURIPOTENT STEM CELLS. It starts in MYELOID CELLS of the bone marrow, invades the blood and then other organs. The condition progresses from a stable, more indolent, chronic phase (LEUKEMIA, MYELOID, CHRONIC PHASE) lasting up to 7 years, to an advanced phase composed of an accelerated phase (LEUKEMIA, MYELOID, ACCELERATED PHASE) and BLAST CRISIS.
A pediatric acute myeloid leukemia involving both myeloid and monocytoid precursors. At least 20% of non-erythroid cells are of monocytic origin.
