  • Figure 1

    Distribution of FLT3/ITD within cytogenetic groups by IDH1 SNP status in adult AML. FLT3/ITD was present in 90% of SNP-positive adult AML patients with normal karyotype; conversely, FLT3/ITD was present in only 9% of SNP-positive adult AML patients with cytogenetic abnormalities.

  • Figure 2

    Prognostic significance of IDH1 SNP rs11554137 in adult and pediatric AML patients. Kaplan-Meier estimates of (A) OS and (B) RFS for adult (SWOG) and pediatric (COG) patients with or without SNP rs11554137. RFS was significantly worse in SNP-positive adult patients (P = .0014).

  • Figure 3

    OS and RFS stratified by risk group and IDH1 SNP status in 186 adult AML patients. Kaplan-Meier estimates of (A) OS and (B) RFS are shown by risk group and, within the adverse risk group, IDH1 SNP status. Tick marks indicate censored observations. Among adult patients with adverse risk based on karyotype or FLT3/ITD, the IDH1 SNP was not significantly associated with OS (P = .94) or RFS (P = .28).

    • * Significant P value.

    • CBF abnormality includes t(8;21), inv(16), and t(16;16). Three patients with +8 also have CBF abnormalities, and another 3 have −7/7q−.

    • Two patients with −7/7q− also have +8; another 2 patients with −7/7q− also have t(8;21); and a fifth patient with −7 also has der(8)t(8;21)(q12;p11) as part of a complex karyotype.
