RATIONALE: Diagnostic procedures that find residual disease may help predict if the disease will come back in patients diagnosed with acute myeloid leukemia.

PURPOSE: This research trial studies the comparison of laboratory test results for minimal residual disease in samples from patients with acute myeloid leukemia.

Condition Intervention
Other: diagnostic laboratory biomarker analysis
Other: flow cytometry

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Degree of concordance in the MRD assay results between laboratories [ Designated as safety issue: No ]

Estimated Enrollment: 10
Study Start Date: February 2012
Estimated Primary Completion Date: March 2012 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Detailed Description:


  • To promote harmonization between Cooperative Group Reference Laboratories conducting minimal-residual disease (MRD) evaluation of acute myeloid leukemia by flow cytometry.

OUTLINE: Archived bone marrow and blood samples, distributed to the Eastern Cooperative Oncology Group, Southwest Oncology Group, and Cancer and Leukemia Group B laboratories, are analyzed for leukemia-associated immunophenotype (LAIP) assays and minimal residual disease studies by flow cytometry. Results are then provided to the National Cancer Institute for assessment and comparability of test results.
