Abstract

Acute Myeloid Leukemia with FLT3 internal tandem duplication mutations (FLT3-ITDmut AML) is an aggressive leukemia character- ized by heterogeneous genetic landscape [1]. Despite significant advances in AML therapy, the relapse rate remains high, due to the emergence of resistant clones, possibly involving leukemic stem cells (LSCs) [2]. This highlights the unmet need for deeper understanding of the molecular and immunophenotypic land- scape of LSCs in FLT3-ITDmut AML. We previously identified a population of leukemic precursor cells (LPCs), present at the time of initial AML diagnosis, characterized by the CD34/CD123/CD25/ CD99+ immunophenotype, and predictive for FLT3-ITDmut positivity [3]. In particular, these cells overexpress CD99 antigen, which may represent a target for monoclonal antibody (mAb) treatment [4]
