Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Event-free survival [ Designated as safety issue: No ]

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Overall survival [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Relapse rate [ Designated as safety issue: No ]

Estimated Enrollment: 149
Study Start Date: September 2009
Estimated Primary Completion Date: June 2011 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Detailed Description:

OBJECTIVES:

  • Determine the extent and prognostic implications of variable s-SHIP expression and SHIP gene mutations in pediatric patients with acute myeloid leukemia.
  • Determine the effects of aberrant s-SHIP expression on the PI3K/Akt pathway in these patients via electrochemiluminescence and phosphospecific flow cytometry assays.

OUTLINE: RNA samples are analyzed for variable s-SHIP expression and are screened for SHIP mutations. Cryopreserved cells (with known high- or low-s-SHIP expression) are analyzed for the levels of various components of the PI3K/Akt pathway via electrochemiluminescence and phosphospecific flow cytometry.
