Resumo

Background: Current results regarding treatment outcomes in acute myeloid leukemia (AML) point to significant differences between low-and middle-income countries (LMIC) and high-income countries (HIC). Excluding well-known socioeconomic issues, genetic markers important for prognosis have not been properly incorporated into the clinical practice so far and their usefulness outside of well-controlled clinical trials remain unknown. Methods: Here, we assessed the clinical significance of the European LeukemiaNet (ELN) recommendations in 196 consecutive patients with AML in a real-life setting. All patients were younger than 60 years of age (49% male) and treated with conventional chemotherapy for induction and consolidation in three Brazilian Institutions that well represent Brazilian geographic and socioeconomic diversity. Findings: Multivariable analysis showed that ELN recommendations had a slight association with complete remission achievement (odds ratio: 0.74, 95% confidence interval, CI: 0.53-1.01; P = 0.06), but were independently associated with poor overall survival (OS) (hazard ratio, HR: 1.3, 95% CI: 1.1-1.54; P=0.002), disease-free survival (DFS) (HR: 1.42, 95% CI: 1.03-1.95; P = 0.028) and event-free survival (EFS) (HR: 1.24, 95% CI: 1.06-1.47; P=0.007), considering initial leukocyte counts and age as confounders. ELN recommendations had no impact on cumulative incidence of relapse (P = 0.09). Interpretation: Our results suggest that within the context of LMIC, the prognostic markers recommended by ELN may be useful to predict patient's clinical outcomes; however, the OS, DFS and EFS were shorter than the reported in Europe and US for the respective risk groups.
