All-trans retinoic acid (ATRA)/arsenic trioxide (ATO) combination-based therapy has benefitted newly diagnosed acute promyelocytic leukemia (APL) in short-term studies, but the long-term efficacy and safety remained unclear. From April 2001, we have followed 85 patients administrated ATRA/ATO with a median follow-up of 70 months. Eighty patients (94.1%)(More)
The full-length AML1-ETO (AE) fusion gene resulting from t(8;21)(q22;q22) in human acute myeloid leukemia (AML) is not sufficient to induce leukemia in animals, suggesting that additional mutations are required for leukemogenesis. We and others have identified activating mutations of C-KIT in nearly half of patients with t(8;21) AML. To test the hypothesis(More)
Nearly 60% of acute myeloid leukemia (AML) patients with the t(8;21)(q22;q22) translocation fail to achieve long-term disease-free survival. Our previous studies demonstrated that oridonin selectively induces apoptosis of t(8;21) leukemia cells and causes cleavage of AML1-ETO oncoprotein resulting from t(8;21), but the underlying mechanisms remain unclear.(More)
