Strategy for incorporating molecular and cytogenetic markers into acute myeloid leukemia therapy
Leukemia, Myeloid, Acute
Acute myeloid leukemia is a heterogeneous disease. Standard treatments may be applied to biologically distinct subgroups, resulting in different treatment outcomes. The concept of risk-adapted therapy allows for recognition of this biologic diversity by incorporating key biologic features, such as cytogenetic and molecular markers, when formulating treatment regimens and investigating emerging targeted therapies based on disease characteristics.
