Title Clinical significance of the most common chromosome translocations in adult acute myeloid leukemia.
Journal Journal of the National Cancer Institute. Monographs
Issue 39
Date 2008
Abstract Text Acquired genetic alterations such as balanced and unbalanced chromosome aberrations and submicroscopic gene mutations and changes in gene expression strongly affect pretreatment features and prognosis of adults with acute myeloid leukemia (AML). The most frequent chromosome/molecular rearrangements, that is, t(8;21)(q22;q22)/RUNX1-RUNX1T1 and inv(16)(p13q22)/t(16;16)(p13;q22)/CBFB-MYH11 characteristic of core-binding factor (CBF) AML and t(15;17)(q22;q12-21)/PML-RARA characteristic of acute promyelocytic leukemia (APL), confer favorable clinical outcome when patients receive optimal treatment, that is, regimens that include high-dose cytarabine for CBF AML and all-trans-retinoic acid and/or arsenic trioxide for APL. Recently, mutations in such genes as KIT in CBF AML and FLT3 in APL have been correlated with clinical features and/or outcome of patients with these AML subtypes, and microarray gene expression profiling has been successfully used for diagnostic purposes and to provide biologic insights. These data underscore the value of genetic testing for common translocations for diagnosis, prognostication, and, increasingly, selecting therapy in acute leukemia.


  • Case insensitive filtering will display rows where any text in any cell matches the filter term
  • Simple literal full or partial string matches
  • Separate multiple filter terms with a spaces, order doesn't matter (a b c and c b a are equivalent )
  • Filtering will only apply to rows that are already loaded on the page, filtering has no impact on query parameters
  • Use quotes to match a longer phrase which contains spaces "mtor c1483f"


  • Generally, the default sort order for tables is set to be first column ascending, however, specific tables may set a different default sort order.
  • Click on any column header arrows to sort by that column
  • Hold down the Shift key and click multiple columns to sort by more than one column, be sure to set ascending or descending order for a given column, before moving on to the next column.
