Treatment of relapsed/refractory or elderly unfit acute myeloid leukemia (AML) is still challenging, and hypomethylating agents in combination with venetoclax, an oral selective BCL2 inhibitor, might be successfully used as salvage therapy.

Abstract

Treatment of relapsed/refractory or elderly unfit acute myeloid leukemia (AML) is still challenging, and hypomethylating agents in combination with venetoclax, an oral selective BCL2 inhibitor, might be successfully used as salvage therapy. However, clinical trials evaluating the efficacy and safety of this combination in the setting of multiresistant AML treatment also as a bridge to transplant are still ongoing. Here, we reported a 50-year-old male diagnosed with AML with normal cytogenetics and wild type for fms-like tyrosine kinase 3, nucleophosmin 1, and KIT, and treated with decitabine and venetoclax as the fifth line of therapy and after a relapse post-allogeneic transplant. The patient achieved a complete remission and successfully underwent a haploidentical transplant with an overall survival of 48.6 months.
