Cost-effectiveness of midostaurin in the treatment of newly diagnosed FLT3-mutated acute myeloid leukemia in France

ConclusionsMIDO represents a clinically significant advancement in the management of newly diagnosed FLT3-mutated AML. In this analysis, MIDO add-on therapy showed gains in LYs and QALYs versus SOC alone and was found to be a cost-effective option at a €100,000 per QALY threshold for end-of-life treatment.

Abstract TET family members (TETs) encode proteins that represent crucial factors in the active DNA demethylation pathway. Evidence has proved that TET2 mutation is associated with leukemogenesis, drug response, and prognosis in acute myeloid leukemia (AML). However, few studies revealed the TETs expression and its clinical significance in AML. We conducted a detailed expression and prognosis analysis of TETs expression in human AML cell lines and patients by using public databases. We observed that TETs expression especially TET2 and TET3 was closely associated with AML among various human cancers. TET1 expressio...

One of the key features of acute myeloid leukemia (AML), a group of very aggressive myeloid malignancies, is their strikingly heterogenous outcomes. Accurate biomarkers are needed to improve prognostic assessment. Glutamate oxaloacetate transaminase 1 (GOT1) is essential for cell proliferation and apoptosis by regulating cell's metabolic dependency on glucose. It is unclear whether the expression level of GOT1 has clinical implications in AML. Therefore, we analyzed the data of 155 AML patients with GOT1 expression information from The Cancer Genome Atlas (TCGA) database. Among them, 84 patients were treated with chemother...

BPDCN is ultimately a bone marrow disease requiring induction-type eradication therapy followed by hematopoietic stem cell transplant (HSCT) to achieve long-lasting remissions or cure. Various regimens have been applied to this disease with varying success. A cumulative review of the literature suggests more intense regimens have greater efficacy with acute lymphoblastic leukemia regimens preferred to acute myeloid leukemia regimens. This approach benefits fit patients who are eligible for HSCT; however, most BPDCN patients require other treatment options. The recent FDA approval of the CD123-targeted agent tagraxofusp pro...

Abstract Patients with FMS-like tyrosine kinase 3 internal tandem duplication (FLT3-ITD) acute myeloid leukemia (AML) respond to conventional induction chemotherapy, with remission rates similar to those seen in other subtypes; however, they are much more likely to relapse and relapse is rapid. For this reason, eligible patients receive consolidation therapy with early allogenic transplantation, but the recurrence rate remains high, even after transplantation. Moreover, the optimal therapy for patients with FLT3-ITD AML who relapse after allogeneic hematopoietic stem cell transplantation remains unclear. Here, we ...

Abstract BACKGROUND &AIMS: Quantification of anti-HBs and anti-HBc predicts the risk of HBV reactivation (HBVr) in lymphoma patients receiving rituximab treatment. However, it remains unclear whether the quantification is predictive of HBVr in leukemia patients undergoing immunosuppression. METHODS: and patients: Clinical and laboratory data of the leukemia patients with resolved HBV infection diagnosed between January 2013 and March 2018 were retrospectively collected. Data series of HBV seromarkers and HBV DNA levels before the patients receiving chemotherapy and/or hematopoietic stem cell transplantati...

Standardized phase angle (SPhA) is a tool used to estimate body composition and cell membrane integrity. Lower baseline SPhA was associated with increased incidence of 60 ‐day mortality in univariable (odds ratio [OR] = 5.25; 1.35, 20.44;P = .02) but not multivariable analysis (OR = 3.12; 0.67, 14.48;P = .15) adjusted for age, creatinine, and cytogenetics. Standardized phase angle is a rapid, noninvasive, and objective measure that may be used to inform risk stratification in adult acute leukemia patients. AbstractStandardized phase angle (SPhA) is a tool used to estimate body comp...

Abstract New therapeutic strategies are needed for pediatric acute myeloid leukemia to reduce disease recurrence and treatment-related morbidity. The Children's Oncology Group Phase III AAML1031 trial tested whether the addition of bortezomib to standard chemotherapy improves survival in pediatric patients with newly diagnosed acute myeloid leukemia. AAML1031 randomized patients younger than 30 years of age with de novo acute myeloid leukemia to standard treatment with or without bortezomib. All patients received the identical chemotherapy backbone with either four intensive chemotherapy courses or three courses f...
