BACKGROUND Acute myeloid leukemia (AML) is a heterogeneous disease with respect to presentation and clinical outcome. The prognostic value of recently identified somatic mutations has not been systematically evaluated in a phase 3 trial of treatment for AML. METHODS We performed a mutational analysis of 18 genes in 398 patients younger than 60 years of(More)
Disease alleles that activate signal transduction are common in myeloid malignancies; however, there are additional unidentified mutations that contribute to myeloid transformation. Based on the recent identification of TET2 mutations, we evaluated the mutational status of TET1, TET2, and TET3 in myeloproliferative neoplasms (MPNs), chronic myelomonocytic(More)
Almost all previous studies on chromosomal analysis related to in vitro aging of human fibroblasts were done using only metaphase chromosomes. However, this procedure may provide only partial information since the aneuploidy presumably hidden in interphase cells would remain undetected. For this reason, we have analyzed aneuploidy both at interphase and at(More)
All prior studies on human age-related chromosomal analysis were done using only metaphase figures derived from lymphocyte cultures in vitro. However, we believe that this procedure may provide only partial information, since the chromosomal abnormalities probably hidden in non-dividing and/or terminally differentiated leukocytes will not be detected by(More)
The relative frequencies of silver-stained nucleolar organizing regions (Ag-NORs) as a function of age have been analyzed in skin fibroblasts derived from eight adult individuals participating in the Gerontology Research Center (GRO) Longitudinal Study, NIA, Baltimore, MD. Since silver staining of NORs is correlated with rRNA gene activity, we used this(More)
