Extended Follow-up of Patients Treated With Bendamustine for Lymphoid Malignancies

Conclusion Bendamustine is an effective therapy with limited long-term sequelae in patients with lymphoid malignancies. Micro-Abstract Bendamustine is an effective treatment for lymphoid malignancies and its role continues to expand. To determine the long-term sequelae associated with bendamustine, 194 patients treated with bendamustine (most commonly with rituximab) were retrospectively reviewed. The rate of secondary malignancies was minimal and no therapy-related myelodysplastic syndrome or acute myelogenous leukemia were reported. No deaths from infection were attributable to bendamustine.

Authors: Steckiewicz KP, Barcińska E, Woźniak M Abstract Nerve growth factor (NGF) is protein discovered by Rita Levi Montalcini in the 1950s. It plays a crucial role in the development of nervous system. NGF may be produced by a variety of cells even beyond nervous system. NGF modulate cell metabolism by binding to p75NTR and TrkA receptors. NGF is involved in psychological processes and may be the possible therapeutical agent for diabetes, cancer and cardiovascular diseases, which will be described in the article.
