Interpatient variability in intracellular uptake and retention (IUR) of imatinib may be due to variable function of the OCT-1 influx pump. OCT-1 activity was measured in pretherapy blood from chronic myeloid leukemia (CML) patients by calculating the difference in IUR of [(14)C]-imatinib with and without OCT-1 inhibition. Of patients with higher than median(More)
Intrinsic sensitivity of newly diagnosed chronic myeloid leukemia (CML) patients to imatinib (IC50(imatinib)) correlates with molecular response. IC50(imatinib) is defined as the in vitro concentration of drug required to reduce phosphorylation of the adaptor protein Crkl by 50%. We now show that interpatient variability in IC50(imatinib) is mainly due to(More)
PURPOSE Organic cation transporter-1 (OCT-1) activity (OA), a measure of the OCT-1-mediated influx of imatinib into CML mononuclear cells (MNCs), is predictive of major molecular response (MMR) at 12 and 24 months in patients with untreated CML. We now report the impact of OA on loss of response, disease transformation, and survival after 5 years of(More)
BACKGROUND Despite the excellent responses to imatinib therapy observed in patients with chronic phase chronic myeloid leukemia, approximately 25% of patients display primary resistance or suboptimal response. The OCT-1 activity in mononuclear cells reflects the efficiency of active influx of imatinib. OCT-1 activity in mononuclear cells is highly variable(More)
Active influx of imatinib in chronic myeloid leukemia (CML) cells is mediated by the organic cation transporter 1 (OCT-1). Functional activity of OCT-1 (OCT-1 Activity) in mononuclear cells is an excellent predictor of molecular response over the first 24 months of imatinib therapy for chronic phase patients. CML progenitor cells are less sensitive to(More)
The functional activity of the organic cation transporter 1 (OCT-1) protein in chronic myeloid leukemia (CML) mononuclear cells (MNCs) is highly predictive of molecular response in imatinib treated patients. Here we investigate whether the MNC OCT-1 activity (OA) provides a surrogate indicator of effective targeting of the more immature CD34(+) cells. While(More)
