The research into pathogenesis and mechanisms behind AML is advancing rapidly, but in general, translation into global application for the majority of patients is wanting. As more becomes known about the cytogenetic and molecular characteristics of leukemia cells and the pathways of leukemogenesis are further elucidated, it is hoped that future therapies will be directed more specifically toward the least toxic method to eradicate clonal malignant cells. HLA-haploidentical and alloBMT using KIR mismatch may dramatically improve survival for many more patients.
