FLT3 Inhibition in Acute Myeloid Leukemia.
FLT3 Inhibition in Acute Myeloid Leukemia. Clin Lymphoma Myeloma Leuk. 2020 Sep;20 Suppl 1:S5-S6 Authors: Smith CC Abstract Mutations in the FLT3 receptor tyrosine kinase are the most frequently found mutations in acute myeloid leukemia (AML). Patients with FLT3 internal tandem duplication (ITD) mutations have poor prognoses. The approved FLT3 tyrosine kinase inhibitors (TKIs) midostaurin and gilteritinib improve survival in AML with FLT3 mutations. Multiple other FLT3 inhibitors are in clinical development. Patients frequently relapse after response to FLT3 inhibitors and the optimal use of FLT3 inhibitors in the upfront, relapse, and maintenance settings remain to be established. We will discuss the biology of FLT3, approved and investigational FLT3 inhibitors, resistance mechanisms, and emerging FLT3 TKI combination clinical trials. PMID: 32862867 [PubMed - in process]

esco Albano Immunomodulatory drugs (IMiDs) are analogs of thalidomide. They have immunomodulatory, antiangiogenic and proapoptotic properties and exert a role in regulating the tumor microenvironment. Recently IMiDs have been investigated for their pleiotropic properties and their therapeutic applications in both solid tumors (melanoma, prostate carcinoma and differentiated thyroid cancer) and hematological malignancies. Nowadays, they are applied in de novo and relapsed/refractory multiple myeloma, in myelodysplastic syndrome, in del5q syndrome with specific use of lenalidomide and B-cell lymphoma. Several studies hav...
Conclusion: 111In-DOTA-BC8 had a long retention time in liver, spleen, kidneys, and red marrow, and the highest absorbed doses were in spleen and liver. Few differences were observed by malignancy type. The exception was greater splenic uptake in the leukemia/MDS group than in the lymphoma or multiple myeloma group.
Fenntartó kezelési módok felnőttkori rosszindulatú hematológiai betegségekben. Orv Hetil. 2020 Sep;161(38):1623-1628 Authors: Udvardy M Abstract Maintenance therapy has been the strong and standard element of many acute lymphoblastic leukaemia protocols, used much less frequently and systematically in adult oncohematological disorders. The first adult maintenance efforts appeared in follicular and mantle cell lymphoma (mostly monoclonal antibody based), along with an early maintenance effort to prolong the plateau phase of myeloma. For the time being, after a...
Abstract The developmental path for venetoclax in acute myeloid leukemia (AML) has been rapid and stands in stark contrast to the incremental progress that has characterized the field in previous decades. For perspective, on December 31, 2013, the first AML patient was enrolled into a study using venetoclax; 59 months later, on November 21, 2018, venetoclax received accelerated approval by the FDA for use in AML. In June 2020, Dr. DiNardo presented the results of the required confirmatory study at the European Hematology Association meeting, showing that venetoclax with azacitidine resulted in a superior response ...
The aim of our study was to selectively analyze newly diagnosed acute myeloid leukemia patients treated with a hypomethylating agent and establish their risk for developing invasive fungal infections (IFI). We stratified patients into concern for IFI (cIFI) versus no concern, and observed that patients of the male gender and those with underlying chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) are at higher risk for cIFI, which may prompt clinicians to consider anti-mold prophylaxis in this setting.

CONCLUSIONS: There was no convincing evidence of an increased risk in any hematological malignancy when interpreting the results from both series of analyses. PMID: 32818321 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]
