  • Acute Myelomonocytic Leukemia

    Abstract Acute myeloid leukemia with inv(16)(p13q22), also known as M4Eo, is a distinct type of leukemia with characteristic clinicopathologic and cytogenetic features. Patients with M4Eo have monocytosis, high blast counts, and abnormal bone marrow eosinophils that contain large basophilic granules. The inv(16)(p13q22)[…][ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Blast Phase

    Abstract Chronic myeloid leukemia blast phase (CML-BP) cells commonly express the multidrug transporter, P-glycoprotein (Pgp). To determine whether Pgp inhibition improves treatment outcome in CML-BP, the Southwest Oncology Group performed a randomized, controlled trial testing the benefit of the Pgp modulator,[…][ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
