Acute myeloid leukemia (AML) is a hematologic malignancy with a 5-year survival of around 25%. Patient-derived xenografts (PDX) currently enable the most precise simulation of this disease.
This project aims to analyze mutation changes for two primary AMLs after in vivo treatment with experimental drugs – palbociclib and ponatinib, newly approved drugs in AML – venetoclax and azacitidine, and chemotherapy. For venetoclax, drug resistance and a possible drug synergism will also be analyzed.
