There is a desperate need for new and effective therapeutic approaches for AML in both children and adults. Epigenetic aberrations are common in adult AML, and many novel epigenetic compounds are in clinical development that may improve patient outcomes. Mutations in epigenetic regulators occur less frequently in AML in children compared to adults. However, investigating the potential benefits of epigenetic therapy in paediatric AML is an important issue that will be discussed in this review.
