Heat shock protein 90 (Hsp90) safeguards the structural integrity and function of many of the key growth regulatory proteins found in malignant cells. Consequently, among the new generation targeted therapeutics, heat shock protein inhibitors have the unique property of being able to target an expansive array of divergent molecular mechanisms involved in(More)
Interference with the molecular mechanisms that generate tumor supportive niches in the bone microenvironment is a rational approach to inhibit the growth of hematological malignancies. However, the advancement of knowledge in this area has been slowed down by the lack of in vitro models to facilitate the screening of potential candidate agents. The rare(More)
BACKGROUND ABT-737 is a BH3 mimetic small-molecule inhibitor that binds with high affinity to Bcl-2 to induce apoptosis in malignant cells and has shown promise as an effective anti-leukemic agent in pediatric preclinical tests. This study focuses on the effects of ABT-737 on leukemia cells with MLL rearrangement and identifies some of the biological(More)
In total, 17 pediatric patients with hematologic malignancies (n=14) and Fanconi anemia (FA) (n=3) underwent haploidentical SCT with T-cell depletion. The patients were conditioned with reduced-intensity regimens, and CYA was used for GVHD prophylaxis. Successful engraftment occurred in 16 patients (94%). One patient failed to achieve a primary engraftment.(More)
