Folypolyglutamate synthase (FPGS) catalyzes the polyglutamation of folates and antifolates, such as methotrexate (MTX), to produce highly active metabolites. FPGS tag SNP rs1544105C > T is located in the gene promoter. The aim of the present study was to investigate the impact of rs1544105 polymorphism on the treatment outcome in pediatric B-cell precursor(More)
Acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL) with distinct fusion transcripts has unique clinical features. In this study, the incidence, clinical characteristics, early treatment response, and outcomes of 1,004 Chinese pediatric ALLs were analyzed. Patients with TEL-AML1 and E2A-PBX1 fusion genes or other B cell precursor ALLs (BCP-ALL) had favorable clinical(More)
MYCN gene amplification is related to risk stratification. Therefore it is important to identify accurately the level of the MYCN gene as early as possible in neuroblastoma (NB); however, for patients with bone marrow (BM) metastasis who need chemotherapy before surgery, timely detection of the MYCN gene is not possible due to the unavailability of primary(More)
High-dose methotrexate (HDMTX) plays an important role in the treatment of acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL) although there is great inter-patient variability in the efficacy and toxicity of MTX. The relationship between polymorphisms in genes encoding MTX transporters and MTX response is controversial. In the present study, 322 Chinese children with(More)
ARS2 protein is important to early development and cell proliferation, in which ARS2-CASP8AP2 interaction is implicated. However, the predictive significance of ARS2 in childhood acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL) is unknown. Here we evaluate the predictive values of ARS2 expression and combined ARS2 and CASP8AP2 expression in relapse. We showed that ARS2(More)
OBJECTIVES CREBBP alterations are associated with many diseases including leukaemia. However, CREBBP expression and its clinical relevance in paediatric acute lymphoblastic leukaemia have not been elucidated. METHODS We studied CREBBP mRNA expression in 349 patients treated with either the BCH-2003 or CCLG-2008 protocol. Using a receiver operating(More)
The aim of this study was to investigate the effect of suppression of nicotinamide phosphoribosyltransferase (NAMPT) expression on imatinib-sensitivity in chronic myelogenous leukemia (CML) cell line K562 and its mechanisms, NAMPT siRNA was synthesized and transfected into K562 cells. PI/Calcein staining technique was used to determine survival rate of(More)
This study on determination of leukemia-specific chromosomal abnormalities and their relationship with prognosis of childhood acute leukemia (AL) had an important significance for childhood acute leukemia. In recent years, the efficacy of treatment of childhood AL has been greatly improved, but relapse is still a main factor affecting prognosis. Treatment(More)
