RESUMO

We explored the prognostic factors for children with very high-risk (VHR) Philadelphia chromosome (Ph) negative B-cell acute lymphoblastic leukaemia (B-ALL) and compared the therapeutic effects of intensive chemotherapy and unmanipulated haploidentical haematopoietic stem cell transplantation (haplo-HSCT) as post-remission treatment in these patients undergoing first complete remission (CR1). A total of 104 paediatric patients with VHR B-ALL in CR1 were retrospectively enrolled in this study, including 42 receiving unmanipulated haplo-HSCT (Group A) and 62 receiving ongoing chemotherapy (Group B). Estimated 3-year overall survival (OS), disease-free survival (DFS) and cumulative incidence of relapse (CIR) at 36·2 months median follow-up were 69·5 ± 4·7%, 63·5 ± 4·8% and 32·4 ± 4·7%, respectively. Maintenance of persistent positive or conversion from negative to positive of measurable residual disease (MRD) and chemotherapy were independent risk factors associated with inferior long-term survival and higher CIR. OS, DFS, and CIR differed significantly between the groups in patients with persistent positive or negative-to-positive MRD. Haplo-HSCT may be an option for children with VHR Ph-negative B-ALL in CR1, especially for patients with persistent positive or negative-to-positive MRD, and could achieve better survival than intensive chemotherapy as post-remission treatment.

RESUMO

Basiliximab has been used successfully as a second-line treatment for steroid-refractory (SR) acute graft-versus-host disease (aGVHD) in adult patients after haploidentical hematopoietic stem cell transplantation (haplo-HSCT) but has not been studied separately in the pediatric setting. We retrospectively reviewed 100 pediatric patients after haplo-HSCT receiving basiliximab for grades II (57%), III (27%), and IV (16%) SR-aGVHD between January 2015 and December 2017. The median number of basiliximab doses was 4 (range, 2-9). The day 28 overall response rate (ORR) was 85%, with complete response (CR) in 74% of patients, partial response (PR) in 11% of patients, and no response in 15% of patients. The day 28 ORR was 94.6% in skin SR-aGVHD, 81.6% in gut SR-aGVHD, and 66.7% in liver SR-aGVHD. Infectious complications included bacterial infection (11%), presumed or documented fungal infections (7%), CMV viremia (53%), EBV viremia (11%), HHV-6 viremia (7%), and HSV viremia (1%). The 3-year overall survival (OS), disease-free survival (DFS), nonrelapse mortality (NRM), and relapse rates between responders and nonresponders were 81.3% vs. 46.7% (P<0.001), 79.0% vs. 46.7% (P=0.001), 6.1% vs. 33.3% (P<0.001), and 14.9% vs. 20.0% (P=0.46), respectively. We conclude that basiliximab is an effective second-line agent for pediatric patients with SR-aGVHD after haplo-HSCT, particularly for skin SR-aGVHD.

RESUMO

BACKGROUND: Haploidentical transplantation has been proposed as an effective treatment for severe aplastic anemia (SAA). The majority of patients have more than one HLA-haploidentical donor. Herein, we compared the outcomes between different donor-recipient relationships for optimal haploidentical donor selection in acquired SAA. METHODS: We conducted a multicenter study based on a registered database of 392 patients with SAA treated with allogeneic hematopoietic stem cell transplantation (allo-HSCT) between 2006 and 2018. In total, 223 patients received grafts from father donors, 47 from mother donors, 91 from siblings, 29 from children, and 2 from collateral donors. RESULTS: Of the 381 patients who survived more than 28 days, 379 (99.5%) recipients were engrafted. The 2-year overall survival (OS) was 86.6 ± 2.5%, 87.1 ± 4.9%, 84.3 ± 3.9%, and 92.2 ± 5.1% for recipients of father, mother, sibling, and child grafts, respectively, (P = 0.706). The 2-year failure-free survival (FFS) was 82.8 ± 2.7%, 86.7 ± 5.1%, 80.8 ± 4.2%, and 92.5 ± 5.1% for recipients of father, mother, sibling, and child grafts, respectively, (P = 0.508). There was no difference in the incidence of either acute or chronic graft-versus-host disease (GVHD) among the different donor sources in multivariate analyses. There were also no differences in the OS or FFS among the different donor sources in the Cox regression analysis. However, OS was significantly better in the patients with a shorter history of aplastic anemia (< 12 months), better performance status (ECOG scores 0-1), or moderate graft mononuclear cell (MNC) counts (6-10 × 108/kg), and in female recipients with male donors. The FFS was also higher in patients with a shorter history of aplastic anemia (< 12 months) and better performance status (ECOG scores 0-1). CONCLUSIONS: Fathers, mothers, siblings, and children are all suitable haploidentical donors for patients with SAA.

RESUMO

BACKGROUND: This study aimed to determine the impact of the pre- and post-minimal residual disease (MRD) status as well as the peri-transplant MRD kinetics on clinical outcomes in pediatric ALL patients who received haploidentical allografts. METHODS: A retrospective study (n = 166) was performed. MRD was determined using multiparameter flow cytometry. RESULTS: Pediatric ALL patients with pre-MRDneg had a lower cumulative incidences of relapse (CIR) compared to those with pre-MRDpos (19.7% vs. 41.2%, P = 0.009). Compared to post-MRDneg group, patients with post-MRDpos experienced higher CIR (81.0% vs. 15.9%, P < 0.001), inferior LFS (14.3% vs. 66.9%, P < 0.001) and OS (19.1% vs. 66.9%, P < 0.001). In regard to peri-MRD kinetics, compared with the MRD-decreasing group and MRDneg/MRDneg group, MRD-increasing group had higher CIR, lower probabilities of LFS and OS (P < 0.001). Compared to pre-MRDneg/post-MRDneg group, a higher CIR was found in the pre-MRDpos/post-MRDpos group (66.7% vs. 12.5%, P < 0.001), pre-MRDpos/post-MRDneg group (32.0% vs. 12.5%, P = 0.016), and pre-MRDneg/post-MRDpos group (91.7% vs. 12.5%, P < 0.001). A lower incidence of LFS and OS were found in pre-MRDpos/post-MRDpos group and pre-MRDneg/post-MRDpos group than in pre-MRDneg/post-MRDneg group (P < 0.05). Multivariate analyses confirmed the association of pre-MRD status, post-MRD status, and peri-MRD kinetics with outcomes (P < 0.05). CONCLUSIONS: The results indicate that, in the pediatric ALL subgroup, not only pre-MRD status or post-MRD status but also peri-SCT MRD dynamics, were associated with an increased CIR after haploidentical allografts. Patients are put into different risk group based on MRD kinetics versus single time MRD status. © 2019 International Clinical Cytometry Society.

RESUMO

OBJECTIVE: The association between lipoprotein (a) [Lp(a)] levels and metabolic syndrome (MetS) remains uncertain, especially in the Asian population. The purpose of this study was to demonstrate the association between Lp(a) levels and MetS in a middle-aged and elderly Chinese cohort. METHODS: A cross-sectional study of 10,336 Chinese adults aged 40 years or older was conducted in Jiading District, Shanghai, China. Logistic regression analysis was used to evaluate the association between serum Lp(a) levels and MetS. RESULTS: In the overall population, 37.5% of participants had MetS. Compared with individuals in the lowest quartile of serum Lp(a) levels, those in the highest quartile had a lower prevalence of MetS (30.9% vs. 46.9%, P for trend < 0.0001). Multivariate logistic regression analyses showed that compared with participants in the bottom quartile of serum Lp(a) levels, those in the top quartile had decreased odds ratio (OR) for prevalent MetS [multivariate-adjusted OR 0.45 (95% confidence interval 0.39-0.51); P < 0.0001]. Additionally, Lp(a) level was conversely associated with the risk of central obesity, high fasting glucose, high triglycerides, and low HDL cholesterol, but not with hypertension. Stratified analyses suggested that increasing levels of Lp(a) was associated with decreased risk of MetS in all the subgroups. CONCLUSION: Serum Lp(a) level was inversely associated with the risk of prevalent MetS in a middle-aged and elderly Chinese cohort.

RESUMO

Rationale: Advanced nasopharyngeal carcinoma (NPC) is an aggressive disease with no targeted therapies and poor outcomes. New innovative targets are urgently needed. KLF4 has been extensively studied in the context of tumors, and current data suggest that it can act as either a tissue-specific tumor-inhibiting or a tumor-promoting gene. Here, we found that KLF4 played as a tumor-promoting gene in NPC, and could be mediated by PLK1. Methods: Tissue immunohistochemistry (IHC) assay was performed to identify the role of KLF4 in NPC. Global gene expression experiments were performed to explore the molecular mechanisms underlying KLF4-dependent tumorigenesis. Small-molecule kinase inhibitor screening was performed to identify potential upstream kinases of KLF4. The pharmacologic activity of polo-like kinase inhibitor volasertib (BI6727) in vitro and in vivo was determined. Result: Our investigation showed that high expression of KLF4 was correlated with poor prognosis in NPC. Moreover, genome-wide profiling revealed that KLF4 directly activated oncogenic programmes, including gene sets associated with KRAS, VEGF, and MYC signalling. We further found that inhibition of polo-like kinase 1 could downregulate the expression of KLF4 and that PLK1 directly phosphorylated KLF4 at Ser234. Notably, phosphorylation of KLF4 by PLK1 caused the recruitment and binding of the E3 ligase TRAF6, which resulted in KLF4 K32 K63-linked ubiquitination and stabilization. Moreover, KLF4 could enhance TRAF6 expression at the transcriptional level, thus initiating a KLF4-TRAF6 feed-forward loop. Treatment with the PLK1 inhibitor volasertib (BI6727) significantly inhibited tumor growth in nude mice. Conclusion: Our study unveiled a new PLK1-TRAF6-KLF4 feed-forward loop. The resulting increase in KLF4 ubiquitination leads to stabilization and upregulation of KLF4, which leads to tumorigenesis in NPC. These results expand our understanding of the role of KLF4 in NPC and validate PLK1 inhibitors as potential therapeutic agents for NPC, especially cancer patients with KLF4 overexpression.

RESUMO

OBJECTIVE: Ideal cardiovascular health (CVH) could predict a lower risk of developing cardiovascular diseases. This study was conducted to investigate the association between ideal CVH and subclinical atherosclerosis in a population cohort of Chinese adults aged ⪖ 40 years. METHODS: This study was designed as a cross-sectional analysis of 8,395 participants who had complete data at baseline and a prospective analysis of 4,879 participants who had complete data at 4.3 years of follow-up. Ideal CVH metrics were defined according to the American Heart Association. Subclinical atherosclerosis was evaluated by plaques in carotid arteries, carotid intima-media thickness (CIMT), brachial-ankle pulse wave velocity (baPWV), and urinary albumin-to-creatinine ratio (UACR). RESULTS: Both the prevalence and incidence of atherosclerosis measures were found to be decreased with increasing numbers of ideal CVH metrics at baseline (all P values for trend < 0.01). The levels of CIMT and UACR at follow-up showed an inverse and significant association with the numbers of ideal CVH metrics at baseline (both P values for trend < 0.05) but a borderline significant association with baPWV (P for trend = 0.0505). Taking participants with 0-1 ideal metric as reference, we found that participants with 5-6 ideal metrics had significantly lower risks of developing carotid plaques (odds ratio, OR = 0.46; 95% confidence interval, CI 0.27-0.79), increased CIMT (OR = 0.60; 95% CI 0.42-0.84), and increased baPWV (OR = 0.57; 95% CI 0.34-0.97) after full adjustments. A significant interactive effect of age and CVH was detected on CIMT and baPWV progression (both P values for interaction < 0.05). CONCLUSION: The numbers of ideal CVH metrics showed a significant and inverse association with the risk of developing subclinical atherosclerosis in middle-aged and elderly Chinese adults, whereas its dose-response effect was attenuated in individuals aged ≥ 60 years and partially weakened in male participants.

RESUMO

Immune-mediated neuropathies (IMNs) following hematopoietic stem cell transplantation have been described recently, which, excluding Guillain-Barré syndrome and chronic inflammatory demyelinating polyneuropathy, may present with atypical patterns. This retrospective, nested, case-control study reviewed data from 3858 patients who received haploidentical hematopoietic stem cell transplantation (haplo-HSCT) during the past 10 years at a single center, and 40 patients (1.04%) with IMN following haplo-HSCT were identified. Chronic graft-versus-host disease (cGVHD) (P = .043) and cytomegalovirus (CMV) viremia (P = .035) were recognized as independent risk factors for the development of IMN after haplo-HSCT. There were no significant differences in overall survival (P = .619), disease-free survival (P = .609), nonrelapse mortality (P = .87), or the incidence of relapse (P = .583) between patients with and without IMN after haplo-HSCT. However, patients with post-transplant IMN were at higher risk of developing cGVHD (P = .012) than patients who did not develop IMN. Twenty-four of the 40 patients with IMN (60%) attained neurologic improvement after treatments including vitamins B1 and B12 and/or immunomodulatory agents. However, 19 (47.5%) patients still had persistent motor/sensory deficits despite receiving timely treatment. More studies are needed to help develop standardized diagnostic and therapeutic strategies for patients with post-transplant IMN.

RESUMO

PURPOSE: Immune checkpoint blockade (ICB) therapy induces durable tumor regressions in a minority of patients with cancer. In this study, we aimed to identify kinase inhibitors that were capable of increasing the antimelanoma immunity. EXPERIMENTAL DESIGN: Flow cytometry-based screening was performed to identify kinase inhibitors that can block the IFNγ-induced PD-L1 expression in melanoma cells. The pharmacologic activities of regorafenib alone or in combination with immunotherapy in vitro and in vivo were determined. The mechanisms of regorafenib were explored and analyzed in melanoma patients treated with or without anti-PD-1 using The Gene Expression Omnibus (GEO) and The Cancer Genome Atlas (TCGA) datasets. RESULTS: Through screening of a kinase inhibitor library, we found approximately 20 agents that caused more than half reduction of cell surface PD-L1 level, and regorafenib was one of the most potent agents. Furthermore, our results showed that regorafenib, in vitro and in vivo, strongly promoted the antitumor efficacy when combined with IFNγ or ICB. By targeting the RET-Src axis, regorafenib potently inhibited JAK1/2-STAT1 and MAPK signaling and subsequently attenuated the IFNγ-induced PD-L1 and IDO1 expression without affecting MHC-I expression much. Moreover, RET and Src co-high expression was an independent unfavorable prognosis factor in melanoma patients with or without ICB through inhibiting the antitumor immune response. CONCLUSIONS: Our data unveiled a new mechanism of alleviating IFNγ-induced PD-L1 and IDO1 expression and provided a rationale to explore a novel combination of ICB with regorafenib clinically, especially in melanoma with RET/Src axis activation.

RESUMO

OBJECTIVE: The objective of this study is to determine whether coronary atherosclerotic plaque composition is associated with cardiovascular disease (CVD) risk in Chinese adults. METHODS: We performed a cross-sectional analysis in 549 subjects without previous diagnosis or clinical symptoms of CVD in a community cohort of middle-aged Chinese adults. The participants underwent coronary computed tomography (CT) angiography for the evaluation of the presence and composition of coronary plaques. CVD risk was evaluated by the Framingham risk score (FRS) and the 10-year atherosclerotic cardiovascular disease (ASCVD) risk score. RESULTS: Among the 549 participants, 267 (48.6%) had no coronary plaques, 201 (36.6%) had noncalcified coronary plaques, and 81 (14.8%) had calcified or mixed coronary plaques. The measures of CVD risk including FRS and ASCVD risk score and the likelihood of having elevated FRS significantly increased across the groups of participants without coronary plaques, with noncalcified coronary plaques, and with calcified or mixed coronary plaques. However, only calcified or mixed coronary plaques were significantly associated with an elevated ASCVD risk score [odds ratio (OR) 2.41; 95% confidence interval (CI) 1.09-5.32] compared with no coronary plaques, whereas no significant association was found for noncalcified coronary plaques and elevated ASCVD risk score (OR 1.25; 95% CI 0.71-2.21) after multivariable adjustment. CONCLUSION: Calcified or mixed coronary plaques might be more associated with an elevated likelihood of having CVD than noncalcified coronary plaques.

RESUMO

The aim of this study was to evaluate the frequency of severe cardiac complications and to assess the ability of various factors to predict these complications in severe aplastic anaemia (SAA) patients after haploidentical transplantation. A retrospective study was conducted in 216 consecutive SAA patients who underwent haploidentical transplantation from 2006 to 2017. All patients received a unified regimen including busulfan, cyclophosphamide (CTX) and antithymocyte globulin at a single centre. A total of 12 (5.6%) patients developed grade III or IV cardiac toxicity. Patients with cardiotoxicity had significantly poorer overall survival (OS) than did those without cardiotoxicity (12.5 vs. 89.6%, P < 0.001). A multivariable model identified four independent adverse predictors of severe cardiotoxicity: pre-transplant ECOG score ( ≥ 2), abnormal ST-T wave on 12-lead ECG, hyperlipaemia and recalculated CTX dose ( ≥ 1.8 g/m2/d). The incidences of severe cardiotoxicity were 50.0%, 6.0% and 1.3% in the high- (3-4 factors), intermediate- (2 factors) and low-risk (0-1 factor) groups, respectively (P < 0.001). The corresponding OS rates were 49.0%, 80.4% and 90.3%, respectively (P < 0.001), at final follow-up. Therefore, patients with high-risk scores had the poorest outcomes and should be monitored closely. Reduced intensity conditioning might be recommended for these patients.

RESUMO

Acute myelogenous leukemia (AML) patients with fetal liver tyrosine kinase 3 (FLT3) internal tandem duplications (ITDs) have poor prognoses if treated with chemotherapy only, primarily as they experience increased relapse rates. To determine whether this alteration also affects outcomes after haploidentical donor (HID) allogeneic hematopoietic stem cell transplantation (allo-HSCT), we compared 334 consecutive FLT3-ITD-positive vs -negative patients with AML (other than acute promyelocytic leukemia) who underwent HID-HSCT. FLT3-ITD was detected in 39 of 334 patients (11.7%). The 2-year relapse rates for FLT3-ITD-positive and -negative patients were 16% and 17%, respectively (P = 0.774). The 3-year disease-free survival (DFS) rates for FLT3-ITD-positive and -negative patients were 74% (95% confidence interval [CI]: 64-81) and 73% (95% CI: 70-81), respectively; P = 0.872); while the 3-year overall survival (OS) rates were 72% (95% CI: 67-81) and 77% (95% CI: 72-84), respectively (P = 0.862). FLT3-ITD mutation had no influence on non-relapse mortality (NRM 15% vs 14%, P = 0.463). Multivariate analyses showed that disease status at HSCT and white blood cell count at diagnosis were independent risk factors associated with relapse, DFS, and OS. In conclusion, FLT3 mutation status has no impact on outcomes after HID-HSCT in patients with AML. HID-HSCT is therefore a valid option for AML patients with FLT3-ITD mutation.

RESUMO

Haploidentical transplantations have achieved comparable survival as HLA fully matched unrelated donors (URDs). When choosing the best donor for HLA haploidentical transplantations, most institutions prioritize using young male donors over mother donors. In a retrospective study we compared outcomes in mother donor and URD transplantations. We found that both 2-year overall survival and 2-year leukemia-free survival were comparable between the mother donor group and URD group (74.8% versus 72.9%, P = .937, and 71.7% versus 67.0%, P = .580, respectively). Higher incidences of grades II to IV acute graft-versus-host disease (GVHD) and chronic GVHD were observed in the mother donor group than in the URD group (43.5% versus 14.0%, P = .001, and 62.2% versus 38.7%, P = .007, respectively). The 2-year cumulative incidences of relapse were significantly decreased in the mother donor group (7.6% versus 20.9%, P = .036). These findings suggest mother donor transplantations could achieve comparable survival with URD transplantations and exhibited decreased rates of relapse but increased rates of GVHD, indicating that mother donors would be a suitable choice for patients without an identical sibling donor.

RESUMO

Donor-specific anti-human leukocyte antigen (HLA) antibodies (DSAs) were associated with graft failure (GF) following haploidentical stem cell transplantation (Haplo-HSCT). The prevalence and risk factors of DSAs in pediatric candidates remain to be determined. In a prospective trial (ChiCTR-OPC-15006672), 486 children with hematological diseases were enrolled to screen for the presence of anti-HLA class I and II antibodies of immunoglobulin G type. Fifty two patients (10.7%) demonstrated positive panel-reactive antibody (PRA) for class I; 24 (4.9%), for class II; and 13 (2.7%), for both. Multivariate analysis showed diagnosis was the independent risk factor for antibodies, as acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL) patients (HR0.141, 95% CI: 0.037-0.538, p = 0.004) had a lower incidence of class II PRAs and DSAs against HLA-B, DQ, and DR, whereas myelodysplastic syndrome (MDS) patients had a higher incidence of PRAs for both class I and class II (HR4.790, 95% CI: 1.010-22.716, p = 0.049), and DSAs against HLA-A, B, C, DP, and DQ. Older age (>12 vs. ≤12) was associated with DSAs against HLA-DP (HR0.194, 95% CI: 0.041-0.918, p = 0.039). Our findings provided novel evidence for prevalence and risk factors for PRAs and DSAs in pediatric candidates receiving haplo-HSCT, possibly benefiting anti-HLA antibody monitoring and donor selection.

RESUMO

This study evaluated the effects of pretransplantation minimal residual disease (pre-MRD) on outcomes of patients with acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL) who underwent unmanipulated haploidentical stem cell transplantation (haplo-SCT). A retrospective study including 543 patients with ALL was performed. MRD was determined using multiparametric flow cytometry. Both in the entire cohort of patients and in subgroup cases with T-ALL or B-ALL, patients with positive pre-MRD had a higher incidence of relapse (CIR) than those with negative pre-MRD in MSDT settings (P < 0.01 for all). Landmark analysis at 6 months showed that MRD positivity was significantly and independently associated with inferior rates of relapse (HR, 1.908; P = 0.007), leukemia-free survival (LFS) (HR, 1.559; P = 0.038), and OS (HR, 1.545; P = 0.049). The levels of pre-MRD according to a logarithmic scale were also associated with leukemia relapse, LFS, and OS, except that cases with MRD <0.01% experienced comparable CIR and LFS to those with negative pre-MRD. A risk score for CIR was developed using the variables pre-MRD, disease status, and immunophenotype of ALL. The CIR was 14%, 26%, and 59% for subjects with scores of 0, 1, and 2-3, respectively (P < 0.001). Three-year LFS was 75%, 64%, and 42%, respectively (P < 0.001). Multivariate analysis confirmed the association of the risk score with CIR and LFS. The results indicate that positive pre-MRD, except for low level one (MRD < 0.01%), is associated with poor outcomes in patients with ALL who underwent unmanipulated haplo-SCT.

RESUMO

The role of allogeneic hematopoietic stem cell transplantation (allo-HSCT), particularly haploidentical (haplo)-HSCT, in pediatric patients with Philadelphia chromosome-positive (Ph+) acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL) in the tyrosine kinase inhibitor (TKI) era is unclear. This study aimed to identify prognostic factors and explore the role of haplo-HSCT in the treatment of Ph+ ALL in the TKI era. We analyzed clinical data of Ph+ ALL patients aged 1 to 18 years who received imatinib added to intensive chemotherapy at the start of induction therapy. Among the 68 patients who completed at least 2 consolidation cycles, 44 underwent transplantation (transplant arm) and 24 received continuous TKI with chemotherapy (nontransplant arm). At the 3-year follow-up the cumulative incidence of relapse (CIR), event-free survival (EFS), and overall survival (OS) were 23.5%, 73.4%, and 80.3%, respectively. Multivariate analysis showed that hematologic response (whether complete remission [CR] was achieved) at the induction end, BCR-ABL levels (whether major molecular response [MMR] was achieved) at 3 months, and transplantation were independent affecting factors for CIR, EFS, and OS. In the risk stratification analysis based on the first 2 prognostic factors mentioned above, no significant difference existed between the transplant and nontransplant arms for the probabilities of 3-year OS, EFS, and CIR in the standard-risk group (no poor prognostic factors). Meanwhile, OS, EFS, and CIR rates were significantly better in the transplant arm in the high-risk group (≥1 poor prognostic factor). Among the 44 patients in the transplant arm, 37 underwent haplo-HSCT. Achieving CR at the induction end, MMR at 3 months, and haplo-transplant were also independent favorable factors of CIR, EFS, and OS in the nontransplant and haplo-HSCT arms. Haplo-HSCT showed a significant survival advantage in the high-risk group only. Hematologic response at the induction end and BCR-ABL levels at 3 months are likely to be useful for identifying pediatric Ph+ ALL patients at a high risk of relapse in the TKI era. Children with Ph+ ALL in first CR may benefit from allo-HSCT, particularly those at high risk. Haplo-HSCT could achieve good long-term survival for pediatric Ph+ ALL. Thus, haplo-HSCT can be an alternative approach for high-risk Ph+ ALL patients.

RESUMO

Background: Several studies have shown that detection of minimal residual disease (MRD) in acute myeloid leukemia (AML) is an independent prognostic factor. This study aimed to evaluate the significance of dynamic MRD pretransplantation on outcome of AML patients receiving allogeneic hematopoietic stem cell transplantation (allo-HSCT). Methods: We retrospectively analyzed 145 consecutive AML patients undergoing allo-HSCT in complete remission status between June 2013 and June 2016. MRD was determined with multiparameter flow cytometry after the first and second courses of chemotherapy and pre-HSCT. Results: In matched sibling donor transplantation (MSDT) settings, patients with positive MRD had higher cumulative incidence of relapse (CIR) than those without MRD after the first (32.3 ± 9.7% vs. 7.7 ± 3.1%, χ2 = 3.661, P = 0.055) or second course of chemotherapy (57.1 ± 3.6% vs. 12.5 ± 2.7%, χ2 = 8.759, P = 0.003) or pre-HSCT (50.0 ± 9.7% vs. 23.0 ± 3.2%, χ2 = 5.547, P = 0.019). In haploidentical SCT (haplo-SCT) settings, the MRD status at those timepoints had no significant impact on clinical outcomes. However, patients with persistent positive MRD from chemotherapy to pre-HSCT had higher CIR than those without persistent positive MRD both in MSDT and haplo-SCT settings. Patients with persistent positive MRD underwent MSDT had the highest relapse incidence, followed by those with persistent positive MRD underwent haplo-SCT, those without persistent MRD underwent haplo-SCT, and those without persistent MRD underwent MSDT (66.7 ± 9.2% vs. 38.5 ± 6.0% vs. 18.8 ± 8.7% vs. 12.0 ± 1.0%, χ2 = 20.763, P < 0.001). Multivariate analysis showed that persistent positive MRD before transplantation was associated with higher CIR (hazard ratio [HR] = 1.69, 95% confidence interval [CI]: 1.200-2.382, P = 0.003), worse leukemia-free survival (HR = 1.812, 95% CI: 1.168-2.812, P = 0.008), and overall survival (HR = 2.354, 95% CI: 1.528-3.627, P < 0.001). Conclusion: Our results suggest that persistent positive MRD before transplantation, rather than positive MRD at single timepoint, could predict poor outcome both in MSDT and haplo-SCT settings.
