PRO: Biomarker surveillance for invasive fungal infections without antifungal prophylaxis could safely reduce antifungal use in acute leukaemia (2022)
Journal Article
Taynton, T., Barlow, G., & Allsup, D. (2022). PRO: Biomarker surveillance for invasive fungal infections without antifungal prophylaxis could safely reduce antifungal use in acute leukaemia. JAC-Antimicrobial Resistance, 4(4), Article dlac074. https://doi.org/10.1093/jacamr/dlac074

Mould-active antifungal prophylaxis is frequently used to prevent invasive fungal infection in patients with acute leukaemia being treated with intensive chemotherapy. Invasive fungal infections are difficult to diagnose, and despite the use of proph...

A prospective registry-based cohort study of the diagnosis and management of acute leukaemia in pregnancy: Study protocol (2022)
Journal Article
Northgraves, M., Allsup, D., Cohen, J., Huang, C., Turgoose, J., & Ali, S. (2022). A prospective registry-based cohort study of the diagnosis and management of acute leukaemia in pregnancy: Study protocol. PLoS ONE, 17(2), Article e0263195. https://doi.org/10.1371/journal.pone.0263195

Background Acute leukaemias (AL) are aggressive but potentially curable blood cancers that can potentially affect women of childbearing age. When a pregnancy is complicated by a diagnosis of AL, clinicians face a complex dilemma: to balance risking...

Bruton’s tyrosine kinase inhibitors impair FcγRIIA-driven platelet responses to bacteria in chronic lymphocytic leukemia (2021)
Journal Article
Naylor-Adamson, L., Chacko, A., Booth, Z., Caserta, S., Jarvis, J., Khan, S., …Arman, M. (2021). Bruton’s tyrosine kinase inhibitors impair FcγRIIA-driven platelet responses to bacteria in chronic lymphocytic leukemia. Frontiers in immunology, 12, Article 766272. https://doi.org/10.3389/fimmu.2021.766272

Bacterial infections are a major cause of morbidity and mortality in chronic lymphocytic leukemia (CLL), and infection risk increases in patients treated with the Bruton’s tyrosine kinase (Btk) inhibitor, ibrutinib. Btk and related kinases (like Tec)... Read More about Bruton’s tyrosine kinase inhibitors impair FcγRIIA-driven platelet responses to bacteria in chronic lymphocytic leukemia.

COVID-19 severity and mortality in patients with CLL: an update of the international ERIC and Campus CLL study (2021)
Journal Article

COVID-19 severity and mortality in patients with CLL: an update of the international ERIC and Campus CLL study. Leukemia : official journal of the Leukemia Society of America, Leukemia Research Fund, U.K, https://doi.org/10.1038/s41375-021-01450-8

Patients with chronic lymphocytic leukemia (CLL) may be more susceptible to Coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) due to age, disease, and treatment-related immunosuppression. We aimed to assess risk factors of outcome and elucidate the impact of CLL-d...

Acute myeloid leukemia (AML) is a hematological malignancy with an undefined heritable risk. Here we perform a meta-analysis of three genome-wide association studies, with replication in a fourth study, incorporating a total of 4018 AML cases and 104...
