GSE138889 Dysregulation of different classes of tRNA fragments in chronic lymphocytic leukemia

Contributors : Y Perkarsky ; C M CroceSeries Type : Non-coding RNA profiling by high throughput sequencingOrganism : Homo sapiensWe analyzed small RNA sequencing data from CD5+/CD19+ B cells of a cohort of indolent and aggressive CLL patients compared with CD19+ B-cells of healthy donors.We identified tsRNA signatures in indolent and aggressive CLL vs. normal B-cells; we also found a drastic dysregulation of the expression of mature tRFs in CLL.

ZauggSummaryTranscription factors (TFs) regulate many cellular processes and can therefore serve as readouts of the signaling and regulatory state. Yet for many TFs, the mode of action—repressing or activating transcription of target genes—is unclear. Here, we present diffTF ( to calculate differenti...

zato Facco Trentin The bone marrow microenvironment promotes proliferation and drug resistance in chronic lymphocytic leukemia (CLL). Although ibrutinib is active in CLL, it is rarely able to clear leukemic cells protected by bone marrow mesenchymal stromal cells (BMSCs) within the marrow niche. We investigated the modulation of JAK2/STAT3 pathway in CLL by BMSCs and its targeting with AG490 (JAK2 inhibitor) or Stattic (STAT3 inhibitor). B cells collected from controls and CLL patients, were treated with medium alone, ibrutinib, JAK/Signal Transducer and Activator of Transcription (STAT) inhibitors, or both drugs...

We report the case of a 71 years old patient with chronic lymphocytic leukemia (CLL), who developed a rapidly progressing multi-fungal infection including mucormycosis of the central nervous system (CNS) during treatment with ibrutinib.On autopsy mucorales species were demonstrated intravascularly by histomorphology of several organs and lymph nodes and were characterized as Rhizomucor pusillus by polymerase-chain reaction (PCR) – analysis. In addition, invasive pulmonary Aspergillus fumigatus was found and also confirmed by PCR. To the best of our knowledge, this is the first confirmation of a multi-fungal sepsis an...

Authors: Moia R, Patriarca A, Deambrogi C, Rasi S, Favini C, Kodipad AA, Schipani M, Gaidano G Abstract Introduction: During the past few years, new genomic approaches have elucidated the molecular genetics of Chronic lymphocytic leukemia (CLL) to a large extent. As a consequence, specific high-risk genetic features of the disease, e.g. TP53 disruption, have become the backbone of the treatment algorithm for CLL and serve as robust biomarkers for a precision medicine approach to this leukemia.Areas covered: This review covers the genetics of CLL and highlights the translational implications of molecular biomarkers ...

ConclusionVenetoclax therapy in a real-world cohort offered modest benefits in heavily pretreated patients. Adverse events were observed at a greater incidence than in the clinical trials. A wide heterogeneity of venetoclax dose escalation, multiagent combinations, and timing of initiation were identified and require investigation in subsequent clinical trials.

This study compared time to next treatment (TTNT), health care resource utilization (HRU), and total direct costs among patients with chronic lymphocytic leukemia (CLL) initiating front-line ibrutinib single agent (Ibr) or CIT.Materials and MethodsOptum Clinformatics Extended DataMart De-Identified Databases were used to identify adults with ≥ 2 claims with a CLL diagnosis initiating front-line Ibr or CIT from February 12, 2014 to June 30, 2017. Inverse probability of treatment weighting was used to control for potential differences in baseline characteristics between the Ibr and CIT cohorts. Two periods were consi...

Chimeric antigen receptor (CAR)-T cell therapy is a new and powerful class of cancer immunotherapy [1,2]. Clinical trials of CAR-T cell therapy targeting the B-cell marker CD19 have shown promising results for the treatment of hematologic malignancies, including acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL) [3 –7], chronic lymphocytic leukemia (CLL) [8,9], and non-Hodgkin lymphoma (NHL) [10,11]. CAR-T cell therapy targeting B-cell maturation antigen (BCMA) has also been demonstrated to be effective for treating multiple myeloma (MM) [12–15].

AbstractPurpose of ReviewThe development and progression of chronic lymphocytic leukemia (CLL), a highly heterogenous B cell malignancy, are influenced by both genetic and environmental factors. Environmental factors, including pharmacological interventions, can affect the epigenetic landscape of CLL and thereby determine the CLL phenotype, clonal evolution, and clinical outcome. In this review, we critically present the latest advances in the field of CLL epigenomics/epigenetics in order to provide a systematic overview of to-date achievements and highlight the potential of epigenomics approaches in light of novel treatme...
