Prognostic Impact of TP53 Mutation, Monosomal Karyotype, and Prior Myeloid Disorder in Nonremission Acute Myeloid Leukemia at allo-HSCT

Researchers analyzed prognostic gene mutations by targeted next-generation sequencing to identify predisposing factors for predicting overall survival at one month before transplantation. They enrolled 120 patients with nonremission acute myeloid leukemia who underwent first allogeneic hematopoietic stem cell transplantation (allo-HSCT) between 2005 and 2018.

LW-213 Induces Cell Apoptosis in Human Cutaneous T-cell Lymphomas by Activating PERK–eIF2α–ATF4–CHOP Axis

Researchers showed that LW-213 dose-dependently inhibited human cutaneous T-cell lymphoma cell lines with IC50 values of around 10 μM, meanwhile it potently inhibited primary leukemia cells derived from peripheral blood of T-cell lymphoma patients.
