Overall Status
This is a registry study in adult patients with newly diagnosed AML

Investigator's sites: 50-60 sites in Germany and Austria

Estimated duration of observation of an individual patient:

10 years maximum


- To register all patients with newly diagnosed AML in all AMLSG participating centers (completeness)

- To perform timely analyses of relevant genetic markers (according to WHO 2008 classification) (incidences, treatment decision)

- To assess clinical characteristics and outcome data (event-free survival [EFS], cumulative incidence of relapse [CIR], cumulative incidence of death [CID], overall survival [OS])

- To assess biological disease features and correlate with clinical outcome data (prognostic and predictive markers)

- To store biosamples from all patients (eg, bone marrow, blood, plasma, buccal swap, sputum, skin biopsy samples)

- To assess quality of life
