Mutations of nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide phosphate-dependent isocitrate dehydrogenase gene (IDH1) have been identified in patients with gliomas. Recent genome-wide screening also revealed IDH1 mutation as a recurrent event in acute myeloid leukemia (AML), but its clinical implications in AML are largely unknown. We analyzed 493 adult Chinese AML(More)
The studies concerning clinical implications of TET2 mutation in patients with primary acute myeloid leukemia (AML) are scarce. We analyzed TET2 mutation in 486 adult patients with primary AML. TET2 mutation occurred in 13.2% of our patients and was closely associated with older age, higher white blood cell and blast counts, lower platelet numbers, normal(More)
Mutations in the additional sex comb-like 1 (ASXL1) gene were recently shown in various myeloid malignancies, but they have not been comprehensively investigated in acute myeloid leukemia (AML). In this study, we analyzed ASXL1 mutations in exon 12 in 501 adults with de novo AML. ASXL1 mutations were detected in 54 patients (10.8%), 8.9% among those with(More)
DNMT3A mutations are associated with poor prognosis in acute myeloid leukemia (AML), but the stability of this mutation during the clinical course remains unclear. In the present study of 500 patients with de novo AML, DNMT3A mutations were identified in 14% of total patients and in 22.9% of AML patients with normal karyotype. DNMT3A mutations were(More)
PURPOSE The transcription factor CCAAT/enhancer binding protein alpha, encoded by the CEBPA, is crucial for the differentiation of immature granulocytes. Mutation of the CEBPA may play an important role in leukemogenesis and prognosis. We sought to characterize the CEBPA mutation in acute myeloid leukemia (AML) and to clarify if there is a distinct(More)
BACKGROUND The incidence of multiple myeloma (MM) is lower in Asia than in western countries. However, no data are available on descriptive epidemiology of MM in Chinese. METHODS From 1979 to 2003, 3602 MM patients were registered in the Taiwan National Cancer Registry. The annual incidence and mortality were calculated and age-standardized to the world(More)
Somatic mutation of the AML1/RUNX1(RUNX1) gene is seen in acute myeloid leukemia (AML) M0 subtype and in AML transformed from myelodysplastic syndrome, but the impact of this gene mutation on survival in AML patients remains unclear. In this study, we sought to determine the clinical implications of RUNX1 mutations in 470 adult patients with de novo non-M3(More)
Recurrent somatic mutation of SRSF2, one of the RNA splicing machinery genes, has been identified in a substantial proportion of patients with myelodysplastic syndrome (MDS). However, the clinical and biologic characteristics of MDS with this mutation remain to be addressed. In this study, 34 (14.6%) of the 233 MDS patients were found to have SRSF2(More)
The proliferation and differentiation of hematopoietic precursor cells depend on various cytokines. The suppressor of cytokine signaling-1 (SOCS1) down-regulates Janus kinases/signal transducers and activators of transcription (JAK/STAT) pathway activity and inhibits the biological effects of cytokines. SOCS1 has been shown to have tumor-suppressor(More)
BACKGROUND/PURPOSE Hodgkin's lymphoma (HL) is particularly rare in Asia, including Taiwan. The report concerning its clinical features and treatment outcomes in Asians is limited. An exploration of the characteristics of HL in this area is of importance for future studies. METHODS In this study, 133 patients with HL diagnosed between January 1985 and(More)
