Early Relapse for Multiple Myeloma Patients Undergoing Single Autologous Stem Cell Therapy: A Single-center Experience

The purpose of the present study was to understand the effect of early relapse (ER) on the overall survival of myeloma patients. We analyzed the outcomes of 257 patients who had received novel agent-based induction therapy and undergone single autologous stem cell therapy at our center from 2010 to 2016. We have concluded that ER, high-risk cytogenetics, and lactate dehydrogenase> 350 UI/L are significant prognosticators for poor patient outcome in those with multiple myeloma.

Acute kidney injury (AKI) is a common complication in cancer patients and occurs in up to 30% of patients during their disease course. Multiple myeloma, leukemia/lymphoma, renal cell carcinoma, and hematopoietic stem cell transplantation are commonly associated with the development of AKI.07/19/2018

Abstract The natural history of mantle cell lymphoma (MCL) is a continuous process with the vicious cycle of remission and recurrence. Because MCL cells are most vulnerable before their exposure to therapeutic agents, front-line therapy could eliminate MCL cells at the first strike, reduce the chance for secondary resistance, and cause long-term remissions. If optimized, it could become an alternative to cure MCL. The key is the intensity of front-line therapy. Both the Nordic 2 and the MD Anderson Cancer Center HCVAD trials, with follow-up times greater than 10 years, achieved long-term survivals exceeding 1...

We present a retrospective analysis to compare the hematologic and organ response in patients who received bortezomib-based therapy before autologous stem cell transplantation (ASCT) versus those who received non–bortezomib-based therapy before ASCT and those who underwent ASCT at diagnosis.Patients and MethodsOf a total of 63 patients who underwent ASCT for light chain amyloidosis, 34 received bortezomib-based therapy before ASCT (Bor-ASCT) and 29 did not receive bortezomib therapy (non-Bor-ASCT). A greater number of patients had involvement of ≥ 3 organs and cardiac involvement in the Bor-ASCT group, sugges...
