The success of imatinib (Glivec®; Novartis) in patients with chronic myeloid leukaemia (CML) has led to the hope that it may be possible to identify similar targets in AML. Although there has been some encouraging preliminary experience in AML with drugs which target dysregulated genes, such as flt 3 or ras, in AML these agents have not as yet fulfilled their promise. Specific management of ALL Treatment of ALL follows the same principles as for AML with three main exceptions. Firstly, treatment directed at treating or preventing the seeding of the CNS with leukaemic blasts forms a central part of ALL regimens.

Malignant transformation of primitive cells with the capacity to develop into cells of the myeloid lineage results in acute myeloid leukaemia (AML), while acquired genetic abnormalities in lymphoid progenitors result in acute lymphoblastic leukaemia (ALL). In the past 30 years there has been a steady improvement in survival rates in patients presenting with acute leukaemia, most dramatically in childhood ALL. This progress has occurred as a result of the rigorous evaluation of chemotherapeutic drugs and supportive care in the setting of large-scale randomized studies.

In such circumstances, a trephine biopsy is needed, which requires a number of days to process in the laboratory. Immunophenotyping Leukaemic blasts are characterized by the aberrant expression of haemopoietic antigens on their cell surface. Distinct patterns of antigen expression permit accurate discrimination between myeloblasts and lymphoblasts, allowing confident distinction between AML and ALL. x/full/;jsessionid=aTVogw__Pie66BGY5K). Cytogenetic and molecular studies The demonstration that specific chromosomal abnormalities are associated with distinct subtypes of acute leukaemia has had enormous implications for the diagnosis and management of acute leukaemia and it is now clear that distinct cytogenetic abnormalities present in newly diagnosed patients with acute leukaemia provide vitally important prognostic information.
