Germline predisposition for clonal hematopoiesis.

Seminars in Hematology 2024 January 15
Clonal hematopoiesis (CH) is an entity hallmarked by skewed hematopoiesis with persistent overrepresentation of cells from a common stem/progenitor lineage harboring single-nucleotide variants and/or insertions/deletions. CH is a common and age-related phenomenon that is associated with an increased risk of hematological malignancies, cardiovascular disease, and all-cause mortality. While CH is a term of the hematological aspect, there exists a complex interaction with other organ systems, especially the cardiovascular system. The strongest factor in the development of CH is aging, however, other multiple factors also affect the development of CH including lifestyle-related factors and co-morbid diseases. In recent years, germline genetic factors have been linked to CH risk. In this review, we synthesize what is currently known about how genetic variation affects the risk of CH, how this genetic architecture intersects with myeloid neoplasms, and future prospects for CH.
