Inherited bone marrow failure syndromes: considerations pre- and posttransplant.

Inherited bone marrow failure syndromes: considerations pre- and posttransplant. Hematology Am Soc Hematol Educ Program. 2017 Dec 08;2017(1):88-95 Authors: Alter BP Abstract Patients with inherited bone marrow failure syndromes are usually identified when they develop hematologic complications such as severe bone marrow failure, myelodysplastic syndrome, or acute myeloid leukemia. They often have specific birth defects or other physical abnormalities that suggest a syndrome, and sequencing of specific genes or next-generation sequencing can determine or confirm the particular syndrome. The 4 most frequent syndromes are Fanconi anemia, dyskeratosis congenita, Diamond Blackfan anemia, and Shwachman Diamond syndrome. This review discusses the major complications that develop as the patients with these syndromes age, as well as additional late effects following hematopoietic stem cell transplantation. The most common complications are iron overload in transfused patients and syndrome-specific malignancies in untransplanted patients, which may occur earlier and with higher risks in those who have received transplants.

Authors: Wu R, Yang H, Wan J, Deng X, Chen L, Hao S, Ma L Abstract Leukemia and lymphoma are common hematological malignancies in children and young adults, which pose a tremendous threat to the survival of these young patients worldwide, despite availability of various effective treatments. The Hippo pathway is a novel‑signaling pathway that regulates organ size, cell proliferation, apoptosis and tumorigenesis. The chief component of this pathway is the transducer yes‑associated protein (YAP) which is over‑expressed in numerous categories of tumors. However, little is known about the effect of YAP in hematol...

In conclusion, miR‑339‑5p may serve its antiproliferative role in AML by directly targeting SOX4, which suggests that miR‑339‑5p may be considered an effective novel therapeutic target for treating patients with such an aggressive haematological malignancy.

Interleukin‑10 promotes proliferation and migration, and inhibits tendon differentiation via the JAK/Stat3 pathway in tendon‑derived stem cells in vitro. Mol Med Rep. 2018 Oct 10;: Authors: Deng G, Li K, Chen S, Chen P, Zheng H, Yu B, Zhang K Abstract Tendon repair follows a slow course of early inflammatory, proliferative and remodeling phases, which commonly results in the failure and loss of normal biomechanical properties. Previous studies have demonstrated that tendon‑derived stem cells (TDSCs) are vital healing cells and that mRNA expression of anti‑inflammatory cytokine interleukin ...

Authors: Azevedo AP, Silva SN, Reichert A, Lima F, Júnior E, Rueff J Abstract Several single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) influencing DNA repair capacity and apoptotic status may confer genetic predisposition to Philadelphia‑chromosome negative myeloproliferative neoplasms (PN‑MPNs), and influence therapeutic response and the clinical course. In the present study, whether SNPs in genes involved in apoptosis and the base excision repair (BER) pathway was evaluated. In addition, some known risk factors in PN‑MPNs that may influence survival and therapeutic response to hydroxyurea (HU) were analyzed, t...

Authors: West AH, Churpek JE Abstract Patients with inherited bone marrow failure syndromes (IBMFSs) classically present with specific patterns of cytopenias along with congenital anomalies and/or other physical features that are often recognizable early in life. However, increasing application of genomic sequencing and clinical awareness of subtle disease presentations have led to the recognition of IBMFS in pediatric and adult populations more frequently than previously realized, such as those with early onset myelodysplastic syndrome (MDS). Given the well-defined differences in clinical management needs and outc...

Alter Fanconi anemia (FA) is a rare autosomal recessive cancer-prone inherited bone marrow failure syndrome, due to mutations in 16 genes, whose protein products collaborate in a DNA repair pathway. The major complications are aplastic anemia, acute myeloid leukemia (AML), myelodysplastic syndrome (MDS), and specific solid tumors. A severe subset, due to mutations in FANCD1/BRCA2, has a cumulative incidence of cancer of 97% by age 7 years; the cancers are AML, brain ...

Abstract Inherited bone marrow failure (IBMF) syndromes are a heterogeneous group of rare hematological disorders characterized by the impairment of hematopoiesis, which harbor specific clinical presentations and pathogenic mechanisms. Some of these syndromes may progress through clonal evolution, myelodysplastic syndrome (MDS) and acute myeloid leukemia (AML). Most prominent are failures of DNA repair such as Fanconi Anemia and much rarer failure of ribosomal apparatus, e.g., Diamond Blackfan Anemia or of telomere elongation such as dyskeratosis congenita. In these congenital disorders, hematopoietic stem cell tr...
