IN ACUTE MYELOID LEUKEMIA, THE USE IN INDUCTION OF STANDARD DOSE ARA-C IS ASSOCIATED WITH A BETTER QUALITY OF RESPONSE AS COMPARED TO AN INDUCTION REGIMEN CONTAINING HIGH DOSE ARA-C

AIMS To explore the impact on the “quality of response” of an induction regimen containing standard dose (SD) ARA-C versus HDAC by measuring minimal residual disease (MRD) once CR was achieved.
Design of MRD studies in AML by Flow Multiple staining at diagnosis Identification of “leukemia-associated” phenotype Definition of a patient’s “immunologic fingerprint” Immunologic fingerprint used during follow-up Venditti et al, Blood 2000 Buccisano et al, Leukemia 2006 Maurillo et al, JCO 2008

CONCLUSIONS Previous studies have shown that MRD assessment impacts independently on the prognosis of AML and proves useful to modulate the intensity of post-remission therapy Achievement of MRD negative status after front-line induction-consolidation therapy is essential for AML outcome Induction regimen containing SDAC given for 10 days results in a more efficient clearance of leukemic burden and a “better” quality of response compared to a similar regimen HDAC based
