Dr. Wang Discusses FLT3 Mutations in AML

Eunice Wang, MD
Published: Sunday, Jun 25, 2017



Eunice Wang, MD, chief, Leukemia Service, professor of Oncology, Departments of Medicine and Immunology, Roswell Park Cancer Institute, discusses FLT3 mutations in acute myeloid leukemia (AML).

In a study of patients with FLT3-mutated AML, crenolanib was combined with standard chemotherapy. There was an initial high response rate, and the drug was fairly well tolerated.

There is a lot of heterogeneity in the FLT3 mutations that AML patients can present with, says Wang. Additionally, there are data suggesting that these mutations can predict resistance to other TKIs.
