RATIONALE: Learning about physical ability and mental function over time in older patients with acute myeloid leukemia may help doctors learn about the long-term effects of treatment and plan the best treatment.
PURPOSE: This clinical trial is assessing physical and mental status in older patients with newly diagnosed acute myeloid leukemia.
|Condition or disease|
|Cognitive/Functional Effects Depression Leukemia|
- Test the feasibility of pre-treatment, bedside assessment of functional and cognitive status in older adults with newly diagnosed acute myeloid leukemia (AML).
- Obtain preliminary data regarding the predictive value of pre-treatment, bedside assessment of functional and cognitive status on overall survival, length of hospitalization and early death.
OUTLINE: This is a prospective study.
At baseline, patients complete questionnaires including the Vulnerable Elders Survey (functional status), the Mini-Mental Status Exam (cognition), and the Center for Epidemiologic Studies-Depression. Patients also undergo physical function testing via the Short Physical Performance Battery and hand grip strength. Further information parameters are obtained by periodic medical chart reviews.
Patients are followed every 3 months for up to 2 years.
