on of Pediatric Hematology/Oncology at the University of Washington School of Medicine and Research Associate at the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center in Seattle. "Our analysis was conducted on a trial completed in 2002, and treatment protocols for pediatric AML have evolved since that time. Our next step is to validate our findings by studying this same association in contemporary trials. We are also designing studies to uncover the mechanism behind the association between the SNP and reduced toxicity, with the hope of translating these findings into improved treatments for pediatric AML."

Dr. Ho will present this study in a poster presentation on Saturday, December 8, at 5:30 p.m. EST at the Georgia World Congress Center in Hall B1-B2, Level 1, Building B.

Genetic Susceptibility to Anthracycline-Related Congestive Heart Failure (CHF) in Survivors of Hematopoietic Cell Transplantation (HCT)[Abstract 589]

Researchers have identified specific genetic factors that are associated with heart failure in patients who have undergone hematopoietic stem cell transplantation (HCT) for blood cancer.

The transplantation of blood-forming stem cells from the bone marrow, circulating blood, or umbilical cord blood is the primary treatment option for many patients with blood cancer who relapse after receiving standard front-line therapies. During the transplant, healthy stem cells replace damaged cells that caused the illness, effectively curing patients of their disease. Advances in transplant strategies have led to a growing number of long-term survivors of HCT. However, this growing population of survivors is at risk for developing life-threatening complications such as congestive heart failure, due in large part to their exposure to pre-HCT treatments with a class of chemotherapy drugs called anthracyclines. Transplant survivors tend to
