To report the outcome of autologous bone marrow transplantation for patients with acute myeloid leukemia (AML) in first or greater complete remission (CR) treated by autologous bone marrow transplantation using two different preparatory regimens. Between September 1986 and August 1993, 75 patients with AML ranging in age from 6 months to 58 years underwent autologous bone marrow transplantation using previously harvested and frozen unpurged (n = 6) or 4-hydroperoxycyclophosphamide purged marrows (n = 69). Patients were in first CR (n = 44) or beyond first CR (n = 31). The preparative regimen consisted of 120 mg/kg of cyclophosphamide (CY) and 1320 cGy total body irradiation (TBI) in eight fractions over 4 days (CY/TBI) in 29 patients; and 16 mg/kg of Busulfan (BU) and 200 mg/kg of CY (BU/CY) in 46 patients. Thirty-five of these 75 patients (18 CY/TBI and 17 BU/CY) were part of a randomized trial comparing the two preparative regimens. At 2 years, overall survival and disease-free survival (DFS) were 49% [95% confidence interval (C.I.) 37-61%] and 43% (95% C.I. 32-55%), respectively. Patients in first CR had a significantly better outcome than patients beyond first CR with an estimated 2-year DFS of 59% (95% C.I. 44-74%) vs. 21%...Continue Reading

Acute Myeloid Leukemia

Acute myeloid leukemia (AML) is a clinically and genetically heterogeneous disease with approximately 20,000 cases per year in the United States. AML also accounts for 15-20% of all childhood acute leukemias, while it is responsible for more than half of the leukemic deaths in these patients. Here is the latest research on this disease.

Allogenic & Autologous Therapies

Allogenic therapies are generated in large batches from unrelated donor tissues such as bone marrow. In contrast, autologous therapies are manufactures as a single lot from the patient being treated. Here is the latest research on allogenic and autologous therapies.
