Title Prognostic impact of c-KIT mutations in core binding factor leukemias: an Italian retrospective study.
Journal Blood

Issue 9
Date 2006 May 1
Abstract Text Distinct forms of tyrosine kinase domain (TKD), juxtamembrane domain, exon 8, and internal tandem duplication (ITD) mutations of c-KIT, were observed in about 46% of core binding factor leukemia (CBFL) patients. To evaluate their prognostic significance, 67 adult patients with CBFL were analyzed to ascertain the c-KIT mutation status. In acute myeloid leukemia (AML) with t(8;21), the presence of c-KIT TKD mutation at codon 816 (TKD(816)) was associated with a high white blood cell count at diagnosis (median, 29.60 x 10(9)/L) and a higher incidence (33%) of extramedullary leukemia (EML) during the course of the disease. Data also showed that the TKD(816) mutated patients (n = 12) had a significantly higher incidence of relapse and a lower overall survival (OS) at 24 months, compared with the 17 c-KIT unmutated (c-KIT(-)) patients (90% vs 35.3%, P = .002; 25% vs 76.5%, P = .006, respectively). No difference in relapse incidence (P = .126) and OS (P = .474) was observed between the c-KIT mutated other than TKD(816) (n = 7) and the c-KIT(-) patients. These findings indicate that c-KIT TKD(816) mutation has a negative impact on the outcome of AML with t(8;21).


  • 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.
