• CD36 Defines Primitive Chronic Myeloid Leukemia Cells Less Responsive To Imatinib But Vulnerable To Antibody-Based Therapeutic Targeting 

      Landberg, Niklas; von Palffy, Sophia; Askmyr, Maria K.; Lilljebjörn, Henrik; Sanden, Carl; Rissler, Marianne; Mustjoki, Satu; Hjorth-Hansen, Henrik; Richter, Johan; Ågerstam, Helena; Järås, Marcus; Fioretos, Thoas (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2018)
      Tyrosine kinase inhibitors (TKIs) are highly effective for the treatment of chronic myeloid leukemia (CML), but very few patients are cured. The major drawbacks regarding TKIs are their low efficacy in eradicating the ...
    • Dasatinib induces fast and deep responses in newly diagnosed chronic myeloid leukaemia patients in chronic phase: Clinical results from a randomised phase-2 study (NordCML006) 

      Hjorth-Hansen, Henrik; Stenke, Leif; Söderlund, Stina; Dreimane, Arta; Ehrencrona, Hans; Gedde-Dahl, Thobias; Gjertsen, Bjørn Tore; Höglund, Martin; Koskenvesa, Perttu; Lotfi, Kourosh; Majeed, Mohammed Waleed; Markevärn, Berit; Ohm, Lotta; Olsson-Strömberg, Ulla; Remes, Kari; Suominen, Merja; Simonsson, Bengt; Porkka, Kimmo; Mustjoki, Satu; Richter, Johan (Journal article, 2015)
      We randomised 46 newly diagnosed patients with chronic myeloid leukaemia (median age 56) to receive dasatinib 100 mg QD or imatinib 400 mg QD and report outcome as an intention-to-treat analysis with 36 months follow-up. ...
    • Differentiation status of primary chronic myeloid leukemia cells affects sensitivity to BCR-ABL1 inhibitors 

      Pietarinen, Paavo O; Eide, Christopher A; Ayuda-Duran, Maria del Pilar; Potdar, Swapnil; Kuusanmäki, Heikki; Andersson, Emma I; Mpindi, John P; Pemovska, Tea; Kontro, Mika; Heckman, Caroline A.; Kallioniemi, Olli; Wennerberg, Krister; Hjorth-Hansen, Henrik; Druker, Brian J; Enserink, Jorrit; Tyner, Jeffrey W.; Mustjoki, Satu; Porkka, Kimmo (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2017)
      Tyrosine kinase inhibitors (TKI) are the mainstay treatment of BCR-ABL1-positive leukemia and virtually all patients with chronic myeloid leukemia in chronic phase (CP CML) respond to TKI therapy. However, there is limited ...
    • Early BCR-ABL1 transcript decline after 1 month of tyrosine kinase inhibitor therapy as an indicator for treatment response in chronic myeloid leukemia 

      El Missiry, Mohamed; Hjorth-Hansen, Henrik; Richter, Johan; Olson-Strömberg, Ulla; Stenke, Leif; Porkka, Kimmo; Kreutzman, Anna; Mustjoki, Satu (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2017)
      n chronic myeloid leukemia (CML), early treatment prediction is important to identify patients with inferior overall outcomes. We examined the feasibility of using reductions in BCR-ABL1 transcript levels after 1 month of ...
    • Immunological monitoring of newly diagnosed CML patients treated with bosutinib or imatinib first-line 

      Kreutzman, Anna; Yadav, Bhagwan; Brümmendorf, Tim H.; Gjertsen, Bjørn Tore; Lee, Moon Hee; Janssen, Jeroen; Kasanen, Tiina; Koskenvesa, Perttu; Lofti, Kourosh; Markevärn, Berit; Olsson-Strömberg, Ulla; Stentoft, Jesper; Stenke, Leif; Söderlund, Stina; Udby, Lene; Richter, Johan; Hjorth-Hansen, Henrik; Mustjoki, Satu (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2019)
      Changes in the immune system induced by tyrosine kinase inhibitors (TKI) have been shown to positively correlate with therapy responses in chronic myeloid leukemia (CML). However, only a few longitudinal studies exist and ...
    • Single cell immune profiling by mass cytometry of newly diagnosed chronic phase chronic myeloid leukemia treated with nilotinib 

      Gullaksen, Stein-Erik; Skavland, Jørn; Gavasso, Sonia; Tosevski, Vinko; Warzocha, Krzysztof; Dumrese, Claudia; Ferrant, Augustin; Gedde-Dahl, Thobias; Hellmann, Andrzej; Janssen, Jeroen; Labar, Boris; Lang, Alois; Majeed, Mohammed Waleed; Mihaylov, Georgi; Stentoft, Jesper; Stenke, Leif; Thaler, Josef; Thielen, Noortje; Verhoef, Gregor; Voglova, Jaroslava; Ossenkoppele, Gert; Hochhaus, Andreas; Hjorth-Hansen, Henrik; Mustjoki, Satu; Sopper, Sieghart; Giles, Francis; Porkka, Kimmo; Wolf, Dominik; Gjertsen, Bjørn Tore (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2017)
      Monitoring of single cell signal transduction in leukemic cellular subsets has been proposed to provide deeper understanding of disease biology and prognosis, but has so far not been tested in a clinical trial of targeted ...
