Ranheim, Emery H. Bresnick Hematopoietic development requires the transcription factor GATA-2, and GATA-2 mutations cause diverse pathologies, including leukemia. GATA-2-regulated enhancers increase Gata2 expression in hematopoietic stem/progenitor cells and control hematopoiesis. The +9.5-kb enhancer activates transcription in endothelium and hematopoietic stem cells (HSCs), and its deletion abrogates HSC generation. The −77-k...

GATA-2 is a transcription factor expressed in haematopoietic stem cell cells involved in differentiation and in lymphatic development. Mutations in this molecule explain four different previously known syndromes: monocytopenia and mycobacterial infection syndrome (MonoMAC); dendritic cell, monocyte, B cell and NK cell lymphoid deficiency syndrome; familiar myelodysplastic syndrome/acute myeloid leukaemia syndrome and Emberger syndrome (primary lymphedema with myelodysplastic syndrome) [1,2].

Abstract Treatment intensification to maximize disease control and reduced-intensity approaches to minimize the risk of late sequelae have been evaluated in newly diagnosed Hodgkin lymphoma. The influence of these interventions on the risk of secondary malignant neoplasms, progression-free survival and overall survival is reported in the present meta-analysis based on individual patient data from 9498 patients treated within 16 randomized controlled trials for newly diagnosed Hodgkin lymphoma between 1984 and 2007. Secondary malignant neoplasms were meta-analyzed using Peto's method as time-to-event outcomes. For ...

Abstract The current therapy for high-risk myelodysplastic syndrome (MDS) involves repeated cycles of the DNA demethylating agent 5-azacitidine (5-Aza), but combination treatments have been proposed to improve patient outcomes. We performed a phase Ib study to investigate the safety and tolerability of 5-Aza (75 mg/m(2)) combined with the histone deacetylase inhibitor panobinostat (PAN) in adult Japanese patients with MDS or chronic myelomonocytic leukemia (CMML). Eleven patients were enrolled; five received 20 mg PAN + 5-Aza and six received 30 mg PAN + 5-Aza. All patients in th...

Allogeneic stem cell transplant (ASCT) with HLA matched donors is increasingly used for older patients with AML/MDS. It remains unclear if haploidentical transplantation (haploSCT) is a suitable option for older patients with this disease. We analyzed 43 patients with AML/MDS (median age 61 years) who underwent a haploSCT at our institution. All the patients received a fludarabine-melphalan-based reduced-intensity conditioning regimen and post-transplant cyclophosphamide-based GVHD prophylaxis. Except one patient who had early death, the remaining 42 patients (98%) engrafted donor cells.
