Myelodysplastic syndromes (MDS) are a heterogeneous group of hematologic diseases, mainly affecting the elderly, characterized by unilinear or multilinear peripheral cytopenia, bone marrow ineffective haemopoiesis, and a varying risk of progression to acute myeloid leukemia (AML). On the basis of the prognostic score systems currently used, MDS patients are generally classified as having higher risk (HR) or lower risk (LR) MDS. Two drugs, azacitidine (AZA) and decitabine (DAC), defined, because of their proven mechanism of action, as DNA methyltransferase inhibitors (DNMTIs), or hypomethylating agents (HMAs), have proven effective in improving peripheral cytopenias and quality of life, reducing or eliminating transfusion need, delaying leukemic evolution, and (only for AZA) prolonging overall survival (OS)...

Patients with relapsed or refractory acute myeloid leukemia (rAML) have a poor prognosis if they do not undergo hematopoietic stem cell transplantation (HSCT). We describe a case herein of acute myeloid leukemia (AML) with monosomy 7 and EVI1(+)(-7/EVI1(+)) in a patient who failed to achieve a complete remission (CR) after two cycles of standard induction chemotherapy. He subsequently received decitabine (DAC) as "bridge therapy" and directly underwent unrelated cord blood transplantation (UCBT) due to the absence of an available sibling donor...

The DNA hypomethylating agents (HMAs) azacitidine and decitabine are currently the most frequently administered disease-modifying therapies for patients with higher-risk myelodysplastic syndromes (MDS). However, azacitidine and decitabine are not curative, the median response duration is 11-15 months, and only 10-20 % of patients experience complete hematologic and cytogenetic response. Moreover, once an HMA fails the patient, the prognosis is poor, with a median survival of less than 6 months unless the patient undergoes hematopoietic stem cell transplantation (HSCT)...

OBJECTIVE: To explore the therapeutic efficacies of decitabine application prior to hematopoietic cell transplantation (HSCY) in patients with myelodysplastic syndrome (MDS) and acute myeloid leukemia (AML). METHODS: Retrospective reviews were conducted for 46 patients with MDS (n = 14) and AML (n = 32) on a therapy of decitabine prior to allo-HSCT between September 2009 and February 2013. RESULTS: In MDS patients, complete remission (CR, n = 10), partial remission (PR, n = 2) and stable disease (SD, n = 1) were achieved prior to HSCT...

WHAT IS KNOWN AND OBJECTIVE: Chemotherapy can increase treatment-related mortality associated with future haematopoietic stem cell transplantation (HSCT) for patients with relapsed/refractory acute myeloid leukaemia (AML). There is usually insufficient time to find a suitable unrelated donor for these patients. We report on the use of decitabine, a DNA methyltransferase inhibitor as a conditioning regimen for a patient undergoing HSCT. CASE SUMMARY: Our patient was a 21-year-old male diagnosed with AML-M1 with 84·5% blast cells and a normal karyotype...

OBJECTIVE: To evaluate the efficacy of decitabine (DAC) bridging therapy followed by allogeneic hematopoietic stem cell transplantation (allo-HSCT) in patients with myelodysplastic syndrome (MDS). METHODS: The clinical characteristics and curative effect of MDS patients who received allo-HSCT from 2010 July to 2013 December were retrospectively analyzed. Of them, 25 MDS patients who received decitabine bridging allo-HSCT were randomly selected (referred to as the bridging group),while at the same time another 33 MDS patients who did not receive decitabine for allo-HSCT in MDS were also randomly selected as control group...

Based on the representative articles in recent years, the different mechanisms of decitabine on immune regulation in patients with acute myeloid leukemia (AML) after allogeneic hematopoietic stem cell transplantation (HSCT) are summarized. Decitabine improves the expression of WT1 gene to stimulate specific cytotoxic T cells which can enhance graft versus leukemia effect (GVL) and improve the expression of FOXP3 gene to stimulate regulatory T cells so as to inhibit the acute graft versus host disease (GVHD)...

Crohn's disease (CD) is a chronic inflammatory disease of the gastrointestinal tract arising in individuals with genetic predisposing factors and abnormalities of the immune system. Myelodysplastic syndrome (MDS), an acquired clonal hematologic disorder, is characterized by peripheral blood cytopenia, dysplastic changes in several types of hematopoietic cells of the bone marrow and peripheral blood, and a high risk of transformation to acute leukemia. CD rarely occurs in combination with MDS, and MDS treatment with hematopoietic stem cell transplantation (HSCT) has not been frequently reported...

The aim of this study was to investigate the clinical characteristics and prognosis of acute erythroleukemia (AEL, AML-M6). The clinical features and results of morphologic, immunophenotypic, cytogenetic and molecular biologic detections were retrospectively analyzed in 13 cases of AEL from 305 acute leukemia patients hospitalized between October 2007 and October 2012. The results showed that the expression of erythroid and non-erythroid cells increased at the same time. The myeloid antigens mainly expressed CD13/CD33/CD117/CD34, while the erythroid antigens expressed Gly and CD71...

BACKGROUND: With a well-developed strategy of acute graft-versus-host disease (aGVHD) prophylaxis, the prognosis of allogeneic hematopoietic stem cell transplantation (allo-HSCT) recipients who develop aGVHD has improved considerably. Meanwhile, transfusion-associated GVHD (TA-GVHD) can be fatal. Recent advancements in immune cellular therapy are being adopted in clinical practice, although many concerns including TA-GVHD remain. This report describes a 64-year-old male non-HSCT candidate diagnosed with acute myeloid leukemia who had received decitabine followed by an infusion of granulocyte-colony-stimulating factor-primed peripheral blood stem cells (G-PBSCs) from his daughter, who carried haploidentical human leukocyte antigen...

Myelodysplastic syndromes (MDS) are clonal disorders of the hematopoietic system with resultant cytopenias and shortened survival. Better recognition of MDS and an aging population, some of whom have been treated with chemotherapy and radiation therapy for other cancers, is largely responsible for the growing incidence of this malignancy, which is divided into lower- and higher-risk subtypes. Erythropoiesis-stimulating agents are the first-line treatment options for patients with lower-risk MDS and symptomatic anemia or for those requiring transfusion support...

Myelodysplastic syndromes (MDS) are a diverse group of hematopoietic disorders characterized by dysplasia, peripheral cytopenias, and risk of progression to acute myeloid leukemia and death. In patients who are ineligible for potentially curative hematopoietic stem cell transplantation (HSCT), approved therapies such as lenalidomide, azacitidine, and decitabine are available for those who previously would have received supportive care alone. Each treatment can achieve hematologic improvement and enhance quality of life...

DNA methylation is a frequent change in epigenetics of leukemia. In the development of leukemia, methylation plays an important role in the genetic expression regulation and genetic structure stabilization. Hematopoietic stem cell transplantation (HSCT) and chemotherapy are the common methods to cure leukemia at present. Unfortunately, it is very hard to find suitable donor for transplantation, while the relapse and drug resistance are the unresolved problems in chemotherapy. Because of the reversibility of methylation, the drugs reducing the level of methylation become a new way to cure leukemia...
