Evaluation of minimal residual disease in acute leukemia patients

Please note that the job is no longer active!

Investigation of MRD has proven to be a valuable tool in patients with acute leukemias for predicting impending relapses and improving patient stratification. The main aim of MRD studies is to allow the possibility to establish tailored therapies based on the burden of residual leukemic cells, which is proved to be a major risk factor for relapse. Wt1 is an important molecular of MRD in patient with AML with intermediate risk. The present study is focused on the evaluation of MRD in a prospective study of a cohort of patients affected by AML receiving an homogeneous treatment and fully characterized by a cytogenetic and molecular point of view. In addition the prognostic significance of WT1 mutations will be established and correlated with the presence of additional lesions and finally to the chemotherapy sensibility and final outcome.
