We analyzed appearance of non transferrin bound iron (NTBI) in 30 transplant eligible patients with acute myeloid leukemia (AML) and acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL) during conventional chemotherapy treatment program and evaluated possible relationship with transfusional body iron intake, iron parameters and clinical complications. For each course, serum samples for NTBI detection were taken prior to chemotherapy, during treatment and during subsequent bone marrow myelosuppression: NTBI was assessed by HPLC...

AIM: To study an association between iron metabolism, free radical oxidation (FRO), and antioxidative system (AOS) in patients with acute myeloid leukemia (AML) during intensive chemotherapy. SUBJECTS AND METHODS: AML patients (n = 14) with a median age of 46 years received 7+3 courses (n = 3) containing cytarabine > or = 1 g/m2/introduction (n = 8) and myeloablative conditioning regimen before hematopoietic stem cell transplantation (n = 3). The concentrations of iron, ferritin, transferrin saturation (TFS), and malonic dialdehyde and the activity of superoxide dismutase (SOD), ceruloplasmin (CP), and catalase were investigated in their sera...

This prospective randomized phase II study aimed to determine the safety and efficacy of deferasirox in preventing iatrogenic iron overload in patients receiving induction/consolidation chemotherapy for acute myeloid leukaemia (AML) ize. Serum ferritin, transferrin saturation and CRP were measured pre-, mid- and post- each chemotherapy cycle. Patients were randomized to receive either therapy with deferasirox vs. no deferasirox therapy once serum ferritin increased to >500 μg/l. The trial was stopped prematurely due to excess gastrointestinal (GI) and infectious toxicity demonstrable in the deferasirox arm, after 10 patients had been randomized to deferasirox and 6 patients to the control arm...

A new serum-free culture (SFC) system for human AML-CFU was established and the colony-promoting activity of four recombinant human hematopoietic growth factors (rhHGFs) including granulocyte-macrophage colony-stimulating factor (rhGM-CSF), interleukin-3 (rhIL-3), erythropoietin (rhEPO) and newly developed stem cell factor (rhSCF) were investigated in this SFC system. Under the orthogonal design condition, it was found that human AML-CFU presented optimal clonal growth in an environment of bovine serum albumin (0...

Numerous investigators have demonstrated that derangements in serum transferrin and iron can contribute to susceptibility to infection, but the complexity and imprecision of assays have impeded both research and development of clinical testing in this area. This article describes an automated assay for measuring the microbial inhibitory activity of transferrin in serum and its use in patients with acute myelogenous leukemia (AML) and in normal controls. The assay measured the ability of heat-inactivated serum to inhibit the growth of an antibiotic-resistant strain of Pseudomonas aeruginosa...
