Based on 2022 ELN risk stratification, 14 (11.4%) patients were classified as favorable, 53 (43.1%) as intermediate risk, and 56 (45.5%) as the high risk, respectively. The ELN-2022 classification re-assigned 27 (21.2%) of patients into more adverse-risk group, and 2 (2.4%) of patients into more favorable-risk group compared with the ELN-2017 recommendations. This difference was largely due to the FLT3-ITD allelic ratio which is no longer considered in the ELN 2022 risk classification. Moreover, myelodysplasia-related gene mutations including EZH2, SF3B1, SRSF2, STAG2, U2AF1 genes is now indicated as adverse risk which was another important change compared to previous ELN risk stratification. Because elderly patients highly associated with AML following prior MDS or MDS/MPN, the revised ELN-2022 is well presented an adverse prognosis in elderly AML patients.
The rate of CR and CRi was 16.3% (20/123, CR = 8 patients, CRi =12 patients). There was no difference in overall response rate by ELN-2017 and ELN-2022 risk stratification. According to the ELN-2017 classification, the difference of 2-year overall survival (OS) between each risk group was not significant in 123 elderly patients treated decitabine (median OS of ELN-2017 favorable (n = 22), 7.2 months; intermediate-risk (n = 62), 8.0 months; Adverse-risk (n=39), 5.2 months; P = 0.081). In the revised 2022-ELN, the 2-year OS of each risk group was more distinct in elderly patients, compared to ELN-2017(median OS of ELN-2022 favorable (n = 14), 10.4 months; intermediate-risk (n = 53), 7.6 months; Adverse-risk (n=56), 5.5 months; P = 0.053).
The study presents the prognostic significance of revised 2022-ELN risk stratification in elderly AML patients receiving decitabine. This study suggests the possibility that the 2022-ELN classification could be predict survival in patients with AML for whom intensive induction therapy is not candidate.
