Abstract

E14a3 breakpoint cluster region (BCR)/ABL proto‑oncogene 1, non‑receptor tyrosine kinase (ABL) fusion transcript is rare in Philadelphia chromosome positive disease, particularly in acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL). Recently an e14a3 fusion transcript was detected by multiple laboratory examinations, and the patient was suffering from ALL. Except for the BCR/ABL fusion gene, in the present study the patient additionally had an IKAROS family zinc finger 1 deletion which, has been confirmed as a significant adverse prognosis factor. Following 2 rounds of chemotherapy, the patient presented cytological remission; however, the patient then relapsed 2 months later. They then received chimeric antigen receptor modified (CAR‑modified) T‑cell therapy and achieved complete remission. CAR‑modified T‑cell therapy is a powerful novel therapy which, exhibited great potential for treating refractory ALL, regardless of the existence and form of the BCR/ABL fusion transcript.
