Session on G-CSF: receptors and mutations

By Mario Dicato, recorded at TAO (Transatlantic Oncology meeting), Nov 20-21, 2014, Paris

2 - Mario Dicato ANG

Mario Dicato reviews receptors and mutations with regard to G-CSF. He chose this topic, because the same question arises in any discussion concerning G-CSF: Can G-CSF cause leukemia? Patients with severe congenital neutropenia (SCN, Kostmann syndrome) and mutations in the G-CSF receptor have an increased risk for the development of acute myeloid leukemia (AML) and myelodysplastic syndromes (MDS). Therefore, genetic evaluation is recommended in patients with chronic neutropenia.
