Title: Acute myeloid leukemia with myelodysplasia related changes
Author: Nagy, Alexandra; Neubauer, Andreas
Abstract: Acute myeloid leukemia (AML) is a heterogeneous clonal disorder with two prominent features: i) hematopoietic progenitor cells loose the ability to differentiate normally and ii) the transformed leukemia cells show an impaired regulation of myeloid proliferation. AML with myelodysplasia-related changes is a sub-entity of AML that has a poor prognosis. It is characterized by a history of MDS, significant morphologic dysplasia, or MDS-related cytogenetic features such as -7/del(7q) and others. Whereas the prognosis of AML is quite different with respect to genetic aberrations, the therapy - except of acute promyelocytic leukemia (APL) - is still relatively unchanged from 30 years ago. Therefore, new treatment strategies are needed.
