BACKGROUND The results of the addition of gemtuzumab ozogamicin, an anti-CD33 antibody conjugate, to the standard treatment for patients with acute myeloid leukaemia in phase 3 trials were contradictory. We investigated whether the addition of low fractionated-dose gemtuzumab ozogamicin to standard front-line chemotherapy would improve the outcome of(More)
PURPOSE Recently, whole-genome sequencing in acute myeloid leukemia (AML) identified recurrent isocitrate dehydrogenase enzyme isoform (IDH1) mutations (IDH1m), previously reported to be involved in gliomas as well as IDH2 mutations (IDH2m). The prognosis of both IDH1m and IDH2m in AML remains unclear. PATIENTS AND METHODS The prevalence and the(More)
To assess the place of allogeneic hematopoietic stem cell transplantation (HSCT) in the advanced stage of acute myeloid leukemia (AML), we retrospectively analyzed 379 consecutive patients who underwent allogeneic HSCT for advanced AML. The median follow-up of the entire cohort was 7.5 years. Sixty-nine patients (18%) were transplanted with primary(More)
BACKGROUND There is a need for standardization of treatment decisions in older patients with acute myeloid leukemia. The aim of the present study was to analyze the decisional value of poor risk factors in 416 elderly patients treated in the ALFA-9803 trial in order to derive a decisional index. DESIGN AND METHODS Standard multivariate analysis was used(More)
Pivotal phase II studies in acute myeloblastic leukemia (AML) patients in first relapse have used gemtuzumab ozogamicin (GO) (Mylotarg) at a dose of 9 mg/m(2) on days 1 and 14. These studies showed a 26% response rate (13% complete remission (CR) and 13% CRp (complete remission with incomplete platelet recovery)) but with high degree of hematological and(More)
PURPOSE In patients with acute myeloid leukemia (AML), induction chemotherapy is based on standard doses of anthracyclines and cytarabine. High doses of cytarabine have been reported as being too toxic for patients older than age 50 years, but few studies have evaluated intensified doses of anthracyclines. PATIENTS AND METHODS In this randomized Acute(More)
The therapeutic management of severe radiation burns remains a challenging issue. Conventional surgical treatment (excision and skin autograft or rotation flap) often fails to prevent unpredictable and uncontrolled extension of the radiation necrotic process. We report here an innovative therapeutic strategy applied to the victim of a radiation accident(More)
In elderly patients with acute myeloid leukemia (AML) treated intensively, no best postremission strategy has emerged yet. This clinical trial enrolled 416 patients with AML aged 65 years or older who were considered eligible for standard intensive chemotherapy, with a first randomization comparing idarubicin with daunorubicin for all treatment sequences.(More)
The aim of this work was to use several new biological indicators to evaluate damage to the main physiological systems in a victim exposed accidentally to ionizing radiation. Blood samples were used for biological dosimetry and for measurement of the plasma concentrations of several molecules: Flt3 ligand to assess the hematopoietic system, citrulline as an(More)
Through two consecutive trials, a policy that considered allogeneic stem cell transplantation (SCT) from a sibling donor in second rather than first complete remission (CR) in selected younger patients with acute myeloid leukemia (AML) with t(8;21)/inv(16) (core binding factor (CBF) group) or a normal karyotype (NN group) was followed by Acute Leukemia(More)
