Jorge E. Cortes, MD, professor and deputy chair, Department of Leukemia, The University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center, discusses FLT3 Inhibitors in acute myeloid leukemia (AML).

Cortes says that one of the most common mutations in AML is FLT3-internal tandem duplication (ITD). Until recently, there has not been much progress in developing agents for this population.

FLT3 inhibitors under development are quizartinib, crenolanib, and gilteritinib. There have been some good responses with these inhibitors as single agents, says Cortes, but they tend to be transient.
