Evaluating immune response and metabolic related biomarkers pre-allogenic hematopoietic stem cell transplant in acute myeloid leukemia

 Overview of peripheral blood stain of patient with acute myeloid leukemiaAnthony Sung, Virginia Kraus, James Bain, Jichun Xie, and team have identified several inflammatory and metabolomic biomarkers that differentiate young and old hematopoietic stem cell transplantation (HCT) patients and are associated with survival and clinical outcomes in HCT. A combination of biomarkers could guide interventions, personalized immune-modulatory therapeutics post-HCT, and could help improve clinical outcomes in acute myeloid leukemia.
