Unusual source of recurrent Corynebacterium bacteraemia in an immunocompromised patient.

BMJ Case Rep 2021 Jun 11;14(6). Epub 2021 Jun 11.

Respiratory Medicine, Prince Philip Hospital, Llanelli, UK.

We describe a unique case of a patient with acute myeloid leukaemia (AML), with recurring infections during chemotherapy from chronic nasal carriage of non-diphtherial Corynebacterium, who was eventually diagnosed as she presented with neutropaenic sepsis. Identifying (often multiple) sources of infection in immunocompromised patients is crucial but deciding whether multiple organisms, which in health are considered as commensals, are actually pathogenic during vulnerable states-can be clinically difficult. Our case highlights the efforts to correctly identify the actual source of this rare organism and the recognition of its pathogenic potential when other illnesses present. Read More

Sex disparity in acute myeloid leukaemia with FLT3 internal tandem duplication mutations: implications for prognosis.

Mol Oncol 2021 Jun 8. Epub 2021 Jun 8.

Department of Medicine, Haematology section, Haukeland University Hospital, Helse Bergen HF, Bergen, Norway.

Incidence, molecular presentation and outcome of acute myeloid leukaemia (AML) is influenced by sex, but little attention has been directed at untangling sex-related molecular and phenotypic differences between female and male patients. While increased incidence and poor risk is generally associated with a male phenotype, the poor prognostic FLT3 internal tandem duplication (FLT3-ITD) mutation and co-mutations with NPM1 and DNMT3A is overrepresented in female AML. Here, we investigated the relationship between sex and FLT3-ITD mutation status by comparing clinical data, mutational profiles, gene expression and ex vivo drug sensitivity in four cohorts: BeatAML, LAML-TCGA and two independent HOVON/SAKK cohorts, comprising 1755 AML patients in total.

Blood Cancer Discov 2021 May 2;2(3):266-287. Epub 2019 Dec 2.

Huntsman Cancer Institute, University of Utah, Salt Lake City, UT, USA.

We discovered that the survival and growth of many primary acute myeloid leukemia (AML) samples and cell lines, but not normal CD34+ cells, are dependent on SIRT5, a lysine deacylase implicated in regulating multiple metabolic pathways. Dependence on SIRT5 is genotype-agnostic and extends to RAS- and p53-mutated AML. Results were comparable between SIRT5 knockdown and SIRT5 inhibition using NRD167, a potent and selective SIRT5 inhibitor. Read More

Targeting IDH1/2 mutant cancers with combinations of ATR and PARP inhibitors.

NAR Cancer 2021 Jun 17;3(2):zcab018. Epub 2021 May 17.

Department of Therapeutic Radiology, Yale University School of Medicine, New Haven, CT 06511, USA.

Mutations in the isocitrate dehydrogenase-1 and -2 (IDH1/2) genes were first identified in glioma and acute myeloid leukemia (AML), and subsequently found in multiple other tumor types. These neomorphic mutations convert the normal product of enzyme, α-ketoglutarate (αKG), to the oncometabolite 2-hydroxyglutarate (2HG). Our group recently demonstrated that 2HG suppresses the high-fidelity homologous recombination (HR) DNA repair pathway, resulting in a state referred to as 'BRCAness', which confers exquisite sensitivity to poly(ADP-ribose) polymerase (PARP) inhibitors.

Epigenetic Silencing of Immune-Checkpoint Receptors in Bone Marrow- Infiltrating T Cells in Acute Myeloid Leukemia.

Front Oncol 2021 4;11:663406. Epub 2021 May 4.

Tumor Immunology, Department for BioMedical Research (DBMR), University of Bern, Bern, Switzerland.

Background: Immune-checkpoint (IC) inhibitors have revolutionized the treatment of multiple solid tumors and defined lymphomas, but they are largely ineffective in acute myeloid leukemia (AML). The reason why especially PD1/PD-L1 blocking agents are not efficacious is not well-understood but it may be due to the contribution of different IC ligand/receptor interactions that determine the function of T cells in AML.

Methods: To analyze the interactions of IC ligands and receptors in AML, we performed a comprehensive transcriptomic analysis of FACS-purified leukemia stem/progenitor cells and paired bone marrow (BM)-infiltrating CD4 and CD8 T cells from 30 patients with AML. Read More
