|Official Title||SEIFEM 2010: Epidemiological Survey on Possible Pre-Hospital Risk Factors for Developing Invasive Fungal Infections in Patients Affected by Acute Myeloid Leukemia|
|Brief Summary||SEIFEM 2010 study is a prospective, multicenter registry designed to identify and analyze risk factors for developing an invasive fungal infection in patients with newly diagnosed Acute Myeloid Leukemia, with particular interest on pre-hospital risk factors (i.e. those related to normal activities of daily life, such as occupation, location and type of residence, consume of tobacco, alcohol and others).|
EPIDEMIOLOGICAL SURVEY ON POSSIBLE PRE-HOSPITAL RISK FACTORS FOR DEVELOPING INVASIVE FUNGAL INFECTIONS IN PATIENTS AFFECTED BY ACUTE MYELOID LEUKEMIA
In two different multicenter surveys conducted in Italy from 1988-1997 and 1999-2003, (Invasive Fungal Infections) IFIs were found to be a frequent cause of morbidity and mortality in patients treated with conventional chemotherapies, particularly in those suffering from acute myeloid leukemia (AML).
In general, the major factors that have been recognized as influencing the likelihood of invasive fungal infection are the patient's immune status, the degree of any organ damage (e.g., mucositis), and overall microbial exposure (i.e., colonization, environment, and prior infection). Since the 1990s, different risk-stratification strategies have been evaluated in order to identify those patients who may benefit from intensive prophylactic and diagnostic measures. However, despite having similar risk profiles, only a subset of AML patients will develop an IFI. One of the most exciting recent advances in the understanding of the epidemiology of IFIs is the recognition of the complexity of the host and the identification of new host-related risk factors.
Aim of this study is to identify and analyze risk factors for developing an invasive fungal infection in patients with newly diagnosed Acute Myeloid Leukemia, with particular interest on pre-hospital risk factors.
Aims and objective:
In the questionnaire, possible risk factors for invasive fungal infections, prior to the onset of acute leukemia, are evaluated. The module consists of several sections:
At the time of a diagnosis of fungal infection data on the type of infection, treatment and course of infection will be evaluated.
Adult and pediatric patients with newly diagnosed acute myeloid leukemia, both eligible and not eligible for intensive chemotherapy. Since this is a noninterventional study, therapeutic strategies remains related to local guidelines. Will be treated as cases all patients with acute leukemia in first induction developing an Invasive Fungal Infection according to international EORTC criteria for possible/probable/proven infections. Patients who do not develop the infection will be used as a control group.
Forty-three Italian divisions of Hematology will take part to the study, distributed among universities and highly specialized hospitals located throughout the country.
