Expansions of simple trinucleotide repeats, such as (CGG)n, (CAG)n or (GAA)n, are responsible for more than 40 hereditary disorders in humans including fragile X syndrome, Huntington’s disease, myotonic dystrophy, and Friedreich’s ataxia. While the mechanisms of repeat expansions were intensively studied for over two decades, the final picture has yet to emerge. It was important, therefore, to develop a mammalian experimental system for studying repeat instability, which would recapitulate repeat instability observed in human pedigrees. Here, we describe a genetically tractable experimental system to stud…

Despite significant efforts to improve therapies for acute myeloid leukemia (AML), clinical outcomes remain poor. Understanding the mechanisms that regulate the development and maintenance of leukemic stem cells (LSCs) is important to reveal new therapeutic opportunities. We have identified CD97, a member of the adhesion class of G protein–coupled receptors (GPCRs), as a frequently up-regulated antigen on AML blasts that is a critical regulator of blast function. High levels of CD97 correlate with poor prognosis, and silencing of CD97 reduces disease aggressiveness in vivo. These phenotypes are due to CD97’s ab…

A 30 year-old man with acute myeloblastic leukaemia and secondary myelodysplastic syndrome developed graft-versus-host disease. The patient was treated with ruxolitinib. After being treated for 3 months with ruxolitinib, an inhibitor of Janus kinase, he developed Aspergillus retinal necrosis resistant to common treatment. Treatment with Janus kinase inhibitors may lead to an increased incidence of opportunistic infections. Janus kinase inhibitor administrat…

Conclusions: These results demonstrate ISAV to be a safe and effective alternative for antifungal ppx in treatment-naïve pts with AML/MDS undergoing induction therapy with a variety of different regimens. ISAV’s weak inhibition of P-glycoprotein and lack of risk of QT prolongation may make ISAV particularly attractive for antifungal ppx in the era of recently approved or emerging AML therapies such as enasidenib, ivosidenib, midostaurin and quizartinib.DisclosuresBose: CTI BioPharma: Research Funding; Constellation Pharmaceuticals: Research Funding; Blueprint Medicines Corporation: Research Funding; Celgene Corporatio…

Conclusions. ISV is widely used in hematological pts with IFI also in diseases other than acute myeloid leukemia and it is overall well tolerated. ORR to ISV is at least comparable with other antifungal agents. A rec/ref underlying hematological disease impacts both on OS and response to ISV, while having an IFI refractory to other antifungal agents including azoles does not seem to compromise the response to ISV, although this promising result should be confirmed in prospective studies and larger groups of patients.DisclosuresBusca: Gilead: Honoraria, Membership on an entity’s Board of Directors or advisory committees, Sp…

Conclusion】Our study is a long-term nationwide study of endemics of visceral mycoses among significant immunosuppressive patients. More recently frequent agents were Mucor spp. in leukemia and MDS, and especially Candida spp. with GVHD. Our data provide valuable evidence that antifungal treatment is one of the most important treatments for leukemia and MDS, and SCT.Figure.DisclosuresNo relevant conflicts of interest to declare.
