To determine the clinical significance of the multidrug resistance protein (MRP) in patients with de novo AML, we have studied MRP expression of leukemic cells at diagnosis and its association with clinical outcome in 127 patients. MRP expression was determined by immunocytochemistry by means of monoclonal antibodies QCRL-1/QCRL-3. MRP expression was low, intermediate and high in 30%, 46% and 24% of the patients, respectively. MRP expression was independent of age and sex of the patients, white blood cell count, FAB subtype, serum lactate dehydrogenase levels and karyotype aberrations. MRP expression had no impact no response to induction chemotherapy. The complete remission rates were 75%, 70% and 64% for patients with low, intermediate and high expression, respectively. Patients with intermediate or high MRP expression showed a trend toward shorter overall survival (p = 0.09) as compared to patients with low MRP expression. MRP does not predict for response to induction chemotherapy but intermediate or high MRP expression might be associated with shorter overall survival of the patients.
