In conclusion, the present study revealed that linalool inhibits T-ALL cell survival with involvement of the MAPK signaling pathway. JNK activation and ERK inhibition may play a functional role in apoptosis induction of T-ALL cells. Linalool may be developed as a novel anti T-ALL agent. PMID: 32934748 [PubMed]

Authors: Zhao Z, Zhou Y, Wang J, Zhang T, Li J, Zhang B, Li Q, Deng S Abstract The present study aimed to determine whether 18F-FDG PET/CT performed before and/or after allogeneic hematopoietic stem cell transplantation (allo-HSCT) can predict clinical outcomes in acute leukemia (AL). A total of 79 examinations comprising 72 patients with AL who underwent 18F-FDG PET/CT before and/or after allo-HSCT were retrospectively enrolled between January 2011 and January 2019. Outcomes were assessed using overall survival (OS) and disease-free survival (DFS). A total of 63 examinations were PET-positive, while 16 examination...

Authors: Chen J, Chen Z Abstract Osteosarcoma is a malignant tumor derived from the skeletal system, often occurring in bone tissues, and it is the most common malignant tumor in the skeletal system, with more than 90% of cases being highly malignant. The present study was designed to explore the regulatory effects of microRNA (miR)-19a on the proliferation and apoptosis of osteosarcoma cells, and its influence on the activation of the Janus kinase 2 (JAK2)/signal transducer and activator of transcription 3 (STAT3) signaling pathway. The expression of miR-19a in adult SaOS-2 osteosarcoma cells was downregulated via...

Conclusions. ISV is widely used in hematological pts with IFI also in diseases other than acute myeloid leukemia and it is overall well tolerated. ORR to ISV is at least comparable with other antifungal agents. A rec/ref underlying hematological disease impacts both on OS and response to ISV, while having an IFI refractory to other antifungal agents including azoles does not seem to compromise the response to ISV, although this promising result should be confirmed in prospective studies and larger groups of patients.DisclosuresBusca: Gilead: Honoraria, Membership on an entity's Board of Directors or advisory committees, Sp...

Summary Posaconazole was introduced as the primary antifungal prophylaxis (PAP) in acute myeloid leukaemia (AML) or myelodysplastic syndrome (MDS) patients during remission induction chemotherapy. Data on breakthrough invasive fungal infections (IFIs) from various centres are essential, as there are several considerations in treating IFIs in the posaconazole era. The aim of this study was to evaluate the effectiveness of posaconazole PAP and identify characteristics of IFIs at a single centre in Korea. We retrospectively reviewed consecutive patients with AML/MDS undergoing remission induction chemotherapy between December...

Conclusions. A combined monitoring strategy based on serum GM and Aspergillus DNA was associated with an earlier diagnosis and a lower incidence of IA in high-risk hematological patients. Clinical Trials Registration. NCT01742026.
