  1. 1. Epidemiological studies in de novo and secondary acute leukemia

    Author : Erik Hulegårdh; Göteborgs universitet.; Gothenburg University.; [2018]
    Keywords : Acute leukemia; ALL; AML; adult; Secondary acute leukemia; MDS; MPN;

    Abstract : Abstract Background Acute leukemia (AL) is a rare blood cancer with poor prognosis in adult patients. Socioeconomic factors are known to impact cancer outcomes, but have not been adequately examined among adult AL patients. READ MORE

  2. 2. Characterization of secondary and therapy-related acute myeloid leukemia

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Karolinska Institutet, Dept of Medicine, Huddinge

    Author : Christer Nilsson; Karolinska Institutet.; Karolinska Institutet.; [2020]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES;

    Abstract : Secondary acute myeloid leukemia (s-AML) refers to patients with either therapy-related AML (t-AML), that is, AML after treatment with chemo- and/or radiation for a prior disease, or AML progressing from an antecedent hematologic disorder (AHD-AML), typically a myelodysplastic syndrome (MDS) or a myeloproliferative neoplasm. Patients with s-AML present with higher rates of adverse cytogenetic aberrations and higher frequencies of adverse mutations and, subsequently, respond worse to therapy, and have poorer outcome compared to de novo AML.

  3. 3. Prognostic markers in pediatric leukemia and mechanisms of KRAS induced leukemogenesis

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Karolinska Institutet, Dept of Medicine, Huddinge

    Author : Anna Staffas; Göteborgs universitet.; Gothenburg University.; [2013]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Prognostic markers; AML; T-ALL; leukemia; FLT3; NPM1; ERG; BAALC; KRAS;

    Abstract : Leukemia results from uncontrolled growth of genetically altered blood cells. Depending on the cell type of origin, the leukemia is defined as T-cell, B-cell, or myeloid and as acute or chronic depending on its characteristics. However, patients with a certain subtype of leukemia (e.g. READ MORE

  4. 4. On mechanisms of drug resistance in acute myeloid leukemia

    University dissertation from Örebro : Örebro universitet

    Author : Malin Prenkert; Örebro universitet.; [2010]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICINE; MEDICIN; Biomedicin; Biomedicine;

    Abstract : In this thesis focus has been to increase the knowledge and understanding of some of the mechanisms responsible for drug resistance in acute myeloid leukemia, as well as identify possibilities to predict drug resistance at diagnosis.We have studied the intracellular behavior of cytostatic drugs and their main metabolites (paper I) and the cellular response to cytostatic drugs (paper III).

  5. 5. Genetic Characterization of Pediatric T-cell Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia

    University dissertation from Division of Clinical Genetics, Lund University

    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; leukmia; genetic characterization; pediatric;

    Abstract : The aim of my thesis has been to characterize genetically pediatric T-cell acute lymphoblastic leukemia (T-ALL). Articles I and II focus on molecular characterization of translocations involving T-cell receptor (TCR) loci. READ MORE
