HollandTeaser GATA2 deficiency is an immunodeficiency and bone marrow failure disorder caused by pathogenic variants in GATA2. It is inherited in an autosomal-dominant pattern or can be due to de novo sporadic germline mutation. Patients commonly have B-cell, dendritic cell, natural killer cell, and monocytopenias, and are predisposed to myelodysplastic syndrome, acute myeloid leukemia, and chronic myelomonocytic leukemia. Patients may suffer from disseminated huma...

GATA2 deficiency is an immunodeficiency and bone marrow failure disorder caused by pathogenic variants in GATA2. It is inherited in an autosomal-dominant pattern or can be due to de novo sporadic germline mutation. Patients commonly have B-cell, dendritic cell, natural killer cell, and monocytopenias, and are predisposed to myelodysplastic syndrome, acute myeloid leukemia, and chronic myelomonocytic leukemia. Patients may suffer from disseminated human papilloma virus and mycobacterial infections, pulmonary alveolar proteinosis, and lymphedema. The bone marrow eventually takes on a characteristic hypocellular myelodysplasi...

We report the first phase 1 findings of BP1001. Methods In this single-centre, open-label, dose-escalation phase 1/1b trial, we enrolled participants (aged ≥18 years) with refractory or relapsed acute myeloid leukaemia, Philadelphia-chromosome-positive chronic myeloid leukaemia (in chronic, accelerated, or blast phase), acute lymphoblastic leukaemia, or myelodysplastic syndrome, at MD Anderson Cancer Center (Houston, TX, USA). We used a 3 + 3 dose escalation strategy, with at least three patients enrolled at each dose level. We administered BP1001 intravenously, twice weekly, for 28 days, with a starting dose of 5 m...

Myelodysplastic syndromes (MDS) are a heterogeneous group of hemopathies that exhibit physical manifestations with clinical consequences of bone marrow failure and inherent risk of progression to acute myeloid leukemia. Iron overload (IO) is common in MDS due to chronic transfusion support and disease-related alterations in iron metabolism. IO has been conclusively associated with inferior outcomes among MDS patients. Despite lack of randomized trials showing a survival impact of iron chelation therapy (ICT), ICT is recommended by experts and guidelines for select MDS patients with IO and is often used.

Abstract Older recipient and donor age were associated with higher incidences of severe graft‐versus‐host disease (GVHD) and mortality after allogeneic hematopoietic stem cell transplantation from matched sibling donors (MSDs) and matched unrelated donors. Since a lower incidence of severe GVHD is advantageous in unrelated cord blood transplantation (CBT), a higher incidence of GVHD using older MSDs could be overcome using cord blood for older patients. We retrospectively analyzed Japanese registration data of 2,091 patients with acute myeloid leukemia, acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL), and myelodysplastic syndrome a...
