Chromosomes and causation of human cancer and leukemia. XI. Correlation of karyotypes with clinical features of acute myeloblastic leukemia

M Sakurai, A A Sandberg


Acute myeloblastic leukemia (AML) patients with chromosomal abnormalities in their bone marrow cells were divided into those with minor karyotypic abnormalities (MIKA) and those with major karyotypic abnormalities (MAKA). One of the largest subgroups in the MIKA group was shown to have cytologic characteristics typical of so-called "classical" AML and a "prototypic" karyotype, which has been shown to be due to translocation between chromosomes number 8 and number 21. A missing Y chromosome in AML was mostly associated with this karyotype. Patients of the MAKA group were usually erythroleukemic, had no or very few normal metaphases among the abnormal ones in the marrow, and almost invariably showed karyotypic instability. Karyotypic differences did not affect the patients' survival after the initiation of chemotherapy as much as did the presence or absence of normal metaphases. However, the karyotypes do appear to be relevant to the decision as to whether a patient should be administered chemotherapy when no normal metaphases are found on the initial bone marrow examination.

Blood And Marrow Transplantation

The use of hematopoietic stem cell transplantation or blood and marrow transplantation (bmt) is on the increase worldwide. BMT is used to replace damaged or destroyed bone marrow with healthy bone marrow stem cells. Here is the latest research on bone and marrow transplantation.

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.
