There is no published data regarding adult acute leukemia (AL) in the United Arab Emirates (UAE). Our objectives were to determine the distribution and incidence of adult AL in UAE (nationals and non-nationals). This epidemiological survey recovered 263 adult patients with AL diagnosed between January 2000 and December 2006 with a median age of 34 years. Twenty-four percent were UAE nationals and 63% were males. Acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL) was more frequently diagnosed (32%) than in… 
Myeloid Leukemias: A Glance at Middle Eastern Centers
TLDR
Conclusively, this study showed a young age of ML patients, with female predominance in CML, and poor outcome, which reflected racial, ethnic and risk factor differences in incidence of MLs.
Myeloid Leukemia: A Molecular Focus on Etiology and Risk Within Africa
TLDR
The duality of the cancer problem in Africa, for being largely a disease of modern life style, occurring against a background of socio-economic disparities and greater burden of communicable diseases, emphasizes the study of peculiar features of gene-environment interaction that may be largely private to Africa.
High Prevalence of Vitamin D Deficiency in Newly Diagnosed Acute Myeloid Leukemia Patients and Its Adverse Outcome
TLDR
The results of the study showed that serum 25(OH)D levels deficiency was highly prevalent among Iranian AML patients, and higher Vit D levels in AMl patients were associated with better outcome in these patients.
Risk Factors of Cancer in the United Arab Emirates.
TLDR
This systematic review signifies an increasing cancer prevalence in the United Arab Emirates and suggests that extra effort is needed with a multi-sectorial approach in future at both the national and international level to effectively tackle the burden of cancer.
EFFECT OF INDUCTION CHEMOTHERAPY ON VITAMIN D LEVEL IN CHILDREN WITH ACUTE LEUKEMIA
TLDR
Vitamin D level was low in a majority of pediatric patients with acute leukemia, and it was further reduced after induction-remission in patients without vitamin D replacement.
Molecular profiling of adult acute myeloid and lymphoid leukemia in a major referral center in Lebanon: a 10-year experience report and review of the literature
TLDR
A lower mean age was found in the adult leukemic Lebanese population as compared to the Western cases and the lower percentage of inv(16), lower incidence of TCF3-PBX1, and the mild increase in Philadelphia positivity in the AML cohort were found.
Low 25(OH) vitamin D3 levels are associated with adverse outcome in newly diagnosed, intensively treated adult acute myeloid leukemia
Several studies have suggested that low 25(OH) vitamin D3 levels may be prognostic in some malignancies, but no studies have evaluated their impact on treatment outcome in patients with acute myeloid

18 Vitamin D and Acute Myeloid Leukemia
TLDR
Vitamin D1 Compound of ergocalciferol with lumisterol (stereoisomer of ergosterol) 1:1 ratio; indicates no distinction between D2 and D3 forms.
Vitamin D and Acute Myeloid Leukemia

Ethnic differences in the lymphoid malignancies of children in the United Arab Emirates. A clue to aetiology?
TLDR
Children of subcontinental origin had significantly more acute lymphoblastic leukaemia and less lymphoma than the other two ethnic groups, probably due to the higher level of education and smaller family size in group 3 and lends support to the proposed infectious aetiology in ALL.
A systematic literature review of the clinical and epidemiological burden of acute lymphoblastic leukaemia (ALL).
TLDR
Future treatment strategies may be driven by the patient's minimal residual disease status, a measure that more precisely defines remission, prognosis, responsiveness to therapy, and expected long-term survival.

Leukaemia cases in Central Hospital, Riyadh (Saudi Arabia)
TLDR
In childhood and young adults, acute leukaemias (ALL and AML) were the commonest types (particularly ALL was common in childhood, whereas CML wasCommon in adults and CLL in old age), whereas males dominated the females in all the types of leukaemia.
Acute leukemia in middle Norway 1984-88.
TLDR
One hundred and eight adult patients with acute leukemia were diagnosed in the middle Norwegian health region during the 5-year period 1984-88, giving an incidence rate of 4.6/100,000 per year, and overall long term survival was found to be 12/108 for all acute leukemias, 8/93 for AML patients and 4/9 for ALL patients.
