PURPOSE Azanucleoside DNA methyltransferase (DNMT) inhibitors are currently approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration for treatment of myelodysplastic syndrome. The relative contributions of DNMT inhibition and other off-target effects to their clinical efficacy remain unclear. Data correlating DNA methylation reversal and clinical response have(More)
UNLABELLED Cytogenetically normal acute myeloid leukemia (CN-AML) represents nearly 50% of human AML. Co-occurring mutations in the de novo DNA methyltransferase DNMT3A and the FMS related tyrosine kinase 3 (FLT3) are common in CN-AML and confer a poorer prognosis. We demonstrate that mice with Flt3-internal tandem duplication (Flt3(ITD)) and inducible(More)
The ability of the DNA methyltransferase inhibitors (DNMTi) to induce terminal differentiation in fibroblasts was first noted by Taylor and Jones in 1979; Silverman and Holland reported hematologic improvement in patients with myelodysplastic syndrome (MDS) in 1993. That azacitidine improves survival in patients with high-risk MDS and acute myeloid leukemia(More)

further impetus to develop conditioning strategies that more potently suppress Treg reconstitution. Clinically, the use of fully myeloablative conditioning using TBI and hematopoietic stem cell rescue before ACT has been used to robustly deplete all host lymphocytes, including Tregs.8,9 Although such a strategy has been associated with improved response(More)
