Common clonal origin of chronic myelomonocytic leukemia and B cell acute lymphoblastic leukemia in a patient with a germline variant.

Cold Spring Harb Mol Case Stud 2021 May 13. Epub 2021 May 13.

McGill University.

Hematological malignancies are broadly divided into myeloid and lymphoid neoplasms, reflecting the two major cellular lineages of the hematopoietic system. It is generally rare for hematological malignancies to spontaneously progress with a switch from myeloid to lymphoid lineage. We describe the exceptional case of a patient who sequentially developed myelodysplastic syndrome (MDS), chronic myelomonocytic leukemia (CMML), and B cell acute lymphoblastic leukemia (B-ALL), as well as our investigation into the underlying pathogenesis.

MDSC: Markers, development, states, and unaddressed complexity.

Immunity 2021 May;54(5):875-884

The Precision Immunology Institute, Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai, New York, NY, USA; The Tisch Cancer Institute, Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai, New York, NY, USA; Department of Oncological Sciences, Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai, New York, NY, USA; Human Immune Monitoring Center, Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai, New York, NY, USA. Electronic address:

Myeloid-derived suppressor cells (MDSCs) are one of the most discussed biological entities in immunology. While the context and classification of this group of cells has evolved, MDSCs most commonly describe cells arising during chronic inflammation, especially late-stage cancers, and are defined by their T cell immunosuppressive functions. This MDSC concept has helped explain myeloid phenomena associated with disease outcome, but currently lacks clear definitions and a unifying framework across pathologies. Read More

Recent advances in understanding chronic myeloid leukemia: where do we stand?

Fac Rev 2021 1;10:35. Epub 2021 Apr 1.

Georg-Speyer-Haus, Institute for Tumor Biology and Experimental Therapy, 60596 Frankfurt, Germany.

While the need for complete eradication of leukemic stem cells (LSCs) in chronic myeloid leukemia may be controversial, it is agreed that remaining LSCs are the cause of relapse and disease progression. Current efforts are focused on the understanding of the persistence of immunophenotypically defined LSCs, which feature abnormalities in signaling pathways relating to autophagy, metabolism, epigenetics, and others and are influenced by leukemia cell-extrinsic factors such as the immune and bone marrow microenvironments. In sum, these elements modulate response and resistance to therapies and the clinical condition of treatment-free remission (TFR), the newly established goal in CML treatment, once the patient has achieved a durable molecular remission after treatment with tyrosine kinase inhibitors.

Declining neutrophil production despite increasing G-CSF levels is associated with chronic inflammation in elderly rhesus macaques.

J Leukoc Biol 2021 May 11. Epub 2021 May 11.

Division of Immunology, Tulane National Primate Research Center, Tulane University, Covington, Louisiana, USA.

Aging is characterized by a loss of bone marrow hematopoietic tissue, systemic chronic inflammation, and higher susceptibility to infectious and noninfectious diseases. We previously reported the tightly regulated kinetics and massive daily production of neutrophils during homeostasis in adult rhesus macaques aged 3 to 19 yr (equivalent to approximately 10 to 70 yr of age in humans). In the current study, we observed an earlier release of recently dividing neutrophils from bone marrow and greater in-group variability of neutrophil kinetics based on in vivo BrdU labeling in a group of older rhesus macaques of 20-26 yr of age.

[Precision diagnostics and therapy in hematological malignancies].

Lakartidningen 2021 May 10;118. Epub 2021 May 10.

professor, överläkare, Karolinska institutet och Karolinska universitetssjukhuset.

Precision diagnostics and therapy have been implemented rather early in clinical hematology due to the easy accessibility of blood and bone marrow, allowing not only for consecutive genetic analysis at diagnosis, remission and relapse, but also for culturing these cells and testing new drugs in vitro. One contributing factor has also been the relatively low number of »driver« mutations in hematologic malignancies and that some of them are gain of function mutations that are relatively easy to target by drugs. Examples of this development are ABL1-, JAK2-, and FLT3-inhibitors for the treatment of chronic myeloid leukemia, myeloproliferative neoplasms, and acute myeloid leukemia, respectively. Read More
