Implications of Mutation Profiling in Myeloid Malignancies —PART 1: Myelodysplastic Syndromes and Acute Myeloid Leukemia

In this first part of our two-part review, we introduce mutation profiling as a relevant clinical tool for hematologists treating patients with myeloid malignancies.

Abstract Myelodysplastic syndrome (MDS) is a clonal disease characterized by multilineage dysplasia, peripheral blood cytopenias, and a high risk of transformation to acute myeloid leukemia. In theory, from clonal hematopoiesis of indeterminate potential to hematologic malignancies, there is a complex interplay between genetic and epigenetic factors, including miRNA. In practice, karyotype analysis assigns patients to different prognostic groups, and mutations are often associated with a particular disease phenotype. Among myeloproliferative disorders, secondary MDS is a group of special entities with a typical sp...

Inherited bone marrow failure (BMF) syndromes are a heterogeneous group of diseases characterized by defective hematopoiesis and often predisposing to myelodysplastic syndrome (MDS) and acute myelogenous leukemia. We have studied a large family consisting of several affected individuals with hematologic abnormalities, including one family member who died of acute leukemia....

We compared the transplant outcomes between HID and MSD transplants for AML and MSD aged ≥50 years. The results showed that HID transplant is feasible and safe for elderly AML/MDS patients. AbstractAllogeneic hematopoietic stem cell transplantation (allo ‐HSCT) is a potentially curative therapeutic option for patients with acute myeloid leukemia (AML) or myelodysplastic syndrome (MDS). Increasing data suggest that haploidentical donor (HID) transplantation achieve comparable outcomes with HLA‐matched sibling donor (MSD) in adult AML/MDS. This re trospective study compared the outcomes of AML or MDS patients age ...
