GC16 Cellular biology in Hematology. Hypercoagulability

We are a consolidated group within IMIBIC. Our research focuses on Hematological Malignancies, allogeneic stem cell transplantation and hypercoagulability, and we are particularly interested in looking for new targets to improve or complement Leukemia treatments. Over the last years, we have accumulated plenty of knowledge in Acute Leukemias, particularly in Acute Myeloid Leukemia (AML) which is one of the most heterogeneous leukemia. Currently, in agreement with the Spanish Hematology Association (FEHH), we are studying several key somatic gene mutations and fusion genes in AML to perform the pattern of clonal evolution. In this sense, we are also generating a new panel of probes to sequence 50 genes in AML in collaboration with CIC in Salamanca. Our lab is one of the seven reference Spanish centers belonging to the PLATAFO-LAM of PETHEMA for the complete phenotypic and genomic characterization of AML at diagnosis and follow-up of Andalucia Hospitals.

We also routinely analyze the leukemic stem cell (LSC) enrichment in acute leukemia patients and intend to isolate the bona fide LSC by fluorescence-activated cell sorting (FACS) to develop functional assays. Furthermore, we study a type of B malignancy named Diffuse Large B-cell Lymphoma (DLBCL) within Non-Hodgkin Lymphoma. In this study, we are using an innovative technology for molecular classification of DLBCL by analysing a set of 20 genes in Nanostring platform and develop new personalized treatment strategies for the patients.

Another research area of our interest is immunotherapy applied to Leukemia, in specific, the immunological recovery of allogeneic hematolopoietic stem cell transplantation (Allo-HSCT). We have evidences that after Alo-SCT, leukemic specific T-cells are immunosurveillance patients’ body. Additionally, in collaboration with the University of Cordoba, we are generating a new protocol based on nanoscience for reprograming of T-cell against Leukemia. Moreover, Chronic graft-versus-host disease (cGvHD) is a late immune response of donor T and B against tissues recipient after Allo-HSCT and is the major cause of late morbidity and mortality. In attempt to elucidate new biomarkers in cGvHD to stop the progression or improve quality of patients’ life, we are analyzing gene expression profiling of T lymphocytes by Affymetrix microarrays to describe new pathways implicated in the pathophysiology of cGvHD.

Our clinical research activities include many clinical trials widely distributed in Acute leukemias, Lymphoma, Chronic Leukemia, Multiple Myeloma, Myelodysplastic and Myeloproliferative syndromes. We actively participate in various regional, national and international hematological networks such as PETHEMA, SEHOP, RESMD, and EBMT, increasing our collaborative network of leukemia researchers and clinicians. Our research has resulted in solid scientific production, contributing to improved clinical protocols and practices.
