The multidrug resistance (MDR1) gene product P-glycoprotein is a membrane bound protein that functions as an ATP-dependent efflux pump, transporting exogenous and endogenous substrates from the cells. Since it plays an important role in chemotherapy, there is an increasing interest in the possible significance of genetic variation in MDR1. Our main objective was to study the MDR1gene polymorphism at C3435T with reference to development and progression of acute leukemia. The present study included 290 acute leukemia cases, comprising of 147 acute lymphocytic leukemia (ALL), 143 acute myeloid leukemia and 249 age-sex matched control samples for the analysis of MDR1 C3435T polymorphism, by the PCR-RFLP method...

Novel treatment schedules of induction therapy for acute lympoblastic leukaemia (ALL) use combinations of immunosuppressive and cytotoxic drugs that are associated with neutropenia and acquisition of invasive fungal infections. It has been described that posaconazole, a triazole antifungal drug, is active against a variety of Candida and Aspergillus species in vitro. Moreover, large clinical trials using posaconazole in severely immunosuppressed patients provided data on efficacy against Aspergillus in vivo...

Studies on acute Leukaemia from developing and Asian countries are scarce, and generally reflect poorer outcomes of therapy compared to their Western counterparts. This study was undertaken to address the latter issue in Iraqi adults with Acute Lymphoblastic Leukaemia (ALL). It included seventy unselected Iraqi adults (aged 14-60years), diagnosed as ALL in Baghdad Teaching Hospital, Baghdad, during the period between May 1991 and June 1994. The clinical and haematological findings in the included patients were generally comparable with those reported from the West, except for the lower median age...
