Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Correlation of high relative expression levels of PLAGL2 and putative PLAGL2 target genes with potential pathogenic relevance [ Designated as safety issue: No ]

Estimated Enrollment: 20
Study Start Date: January 2010
Primary Completion Date: April 2010 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Detailed Description:

OBJECTIVES:

  • Screen acute myeloid leukemia (AML) samples to correlate high relative expression levels of PLAGL2 and putative PLAGL2 target genes (implicated in microarray study) with potential pathogenic relevance with respect to AML development.

OUTLINE: Cryopreserved mRNA from diagnostic samples is analyzed for gene expression by reverse transcriptase-PCR.
