Study Description

T-cell acute lymphoblastic leukemia (T-ALL) is an aggressive hematological malignancy with a dismal prognosis related to refractory/relapsing diseases, raising the need for new targeted-therapies. Activating mutations of the IL7-receptor pathway genes (IL7Rp) play a proven leukemia-supportive role in T-ALL. JAK-inhibitors such as ruxolitinib have recently demonstrated preclinical efficacy. However, prediction markers for sensitivity to JAK-inhibitors are still lacking. Herein, we show that IL7R (CD127) expression is more frequent (~70%) than IL7Rp-mutations in T-ALL (~30%). We compared the so-called non-expressers (no IL7R-expression/IL7Rp-mutation), expressers (IL7R-expression without IL7Rp-mutation) and mutants (IL7Rp-mutations). Integrative multi-omics analysis outlined IL7R-deregulation in virtually all T-ALL subtypes, at the epigenetic-level in non-expressers, genetic-level in mutants, and post-transcriptional level in expressers. Ex-vivo data using primary-derived xenografts support that IL7Rp is functional whenever the IL7R is expressed, regardless of the IL7Rp mutational ... (Show More)
