Primary Outcome Measures:
  • the genomic abnormality spectrum [ Time Frame: 5 years ]
    AML cells in the peripheral blood and bone marrow samples will be examined by next generation sequencing using an Illumina DNA sequencer. DNA from the skin biopsy will be used as the constitutional reference DNA. Using skin DNA greatly improves the ability to accurately and precisely identify somatic mutations in the AML cells.

  • drug sensitivity [ Time Frame: 5 years ]
    Ex vivo drug sensitivity testing will be performed on each subject's AML cells derived from peripheral blood and bone marrow. AML cell viability will be recorded for each treatment condition after 72 hours of treatment. A rank-ordered list of drugs will be created in order of drug toxicity.


Estimated Enrollment: 50
Actual Study Start Date: February 15, 2017
Estimated Study Completion Date: February 15, 2025
Estimated Primary Completion Date: February 15, 2024 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Arms Assigned Interventions
Experimental: Acute Myeloid Leukemia (AML)
AML samples will be collected from individuals with newly diagnosed or relapsed/refractory Acute Myeloid Leukemia (AML) as defined by World Health Organization 2016.
Genetic: Genomics
AML cells will be examined by Next Generation Sequencing using an Illumina DNA sequencer.
Other Name: Computational Biology
Diagnostic Test: Drug Sensitivity Assay
Ex vivo drug sensitivity testing will be performed on AML cells.
Genetic: Proteomics
Biomarkers and genomic signatures will be identified in AML cells that correlate with disease response and adverse events.

Detailed Description:

As part of normal clinical care, patients will undergo a peripheral blood draw and bone marrow aspiration & biopsy. Blood draws and bone marrow aspirations are performed at the time of diagnosis, after treatments , disease progression, and relapse. Under normal clinical care, patient specimens are analyzed by cytogenetics (giemsa staining), fluorescence in situ hybridization (FISH), and gene mutation profiling. Clinically, treatment can begin before these molecular diagnostics are available.

As part of this repository study, subjects are asked to:

  • Allow access to banked blood and bone marrow specimens in IRB approved protocol # 532-2012.
  • Donate peripheral blood specimens whenever blood is already being drawn for clinical purposes such as at times of diagnosis, relapse, refractory disease or disease progression. Additional samples may be requested at other standard of care visits in the event that initial samples are not viable for DNA sequencing, phenotyping, or functional assays for patients with AML, if disease is present.
  • Donate bone marrow aspirate specimens whenever bone marrow aspiration is already being done for clinical purposes such as at times of diagnosis, relapse, refractory disease or disease progression. If bone marrow aspirate is being collected for banking protocol #532-2012, then an aliquot of the banked specimen will be accessed rather than collect an additional bone marrow aspirate for this study.
  • Undergo skin biopsy and donate the skin biopsy specimen for genomic profiling.
  • Allow bone marrow, peripheral blood and skin biopsy specimens to be collected for genomic profiling and ex vivo drug sensitivity testing.
