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.

This study focuses on the efficacy of pegfilgrastim in PBSC mobilization compared to filgrastim exclusively after novel agent-based induction in a homogeneous group of MM patients. We analyzed 89 patients with MM treated at two transplant centers in Singapore who received novel agent-based induction chemotherapy, PBSC mobilization with vinorelbine / cyclophosphamide, high-dose melphalan conditioning and autologous stem cell rescue. 61 patients were included in the pegfilgrastim group and 28 in the filgrastim group, with a similar median age and disease characteristics. PBSC harvesting was done at a similar median time of 9...

The current standard of care for transplant-eligible myeloma patients is novel agent-based induction followed by high-dose chemotherapy and autologous stem cell rescue. Chemo-mobilization of peripheral blood CD34+ stem cells (PBSC) with pegylated filgrastim (pegfilgrastim), a sustained-duration formulation of filgrastim, has been used as an alternative to filgrastim in several studies involving heterogeneous cohorts of lymphoma and multiple myeloma (MM) patients and shown to be equivalent in PBSC yield and cost-effectiveness.

Conclusion The use of consolidative RT after HDC and ASCT for relapsed or refractory DLBCL appears to significantly improve LRC. For patients with masses ≥ 2 cm after ASCT, improved 2-year PFS and OS were seen. Prospective trials are needed to further identify the patients who would derive the most benefit from consolidative RT in the ASCT setting. Micro-Abstract Patients with relapsed or refractory diffuse large B-cell lymphoma undergoing autologous bone marrow transplantation benefited from consolidative involved-field radiotherapy (IFRT). All patients who underwent consolidative IFRT had improved locoregional co...

Conclusion Our results suggest that achievement of a CR is imperative in patients with advanced ENKL, and is desirable for any patient for whom auto-SCT is utilized. SMILE-based chemotherapy appeared effective in attaining a CR, and was also an effective salvage regimen. For patients attaining a first CR, auto-SCT should be strongly considered, but should definitely be utilized in patients attaining CR2. For patients with refractory disease, allo-SCT can be considered in a selected group of patients. Micro-Abstract We present a cohort of primarily non-Asian patients with advanced stage and relapsed/refractory ENKL. Our res...

Conclusions Our results have demonstrated that ER is an important clinical indicator of patients at high risk. As applications of novel agents evolve, further studies are required to tailor therapy for this patient group.

Conclusion Danazol as first-line therapy is an acceptable treatment option with low side effects for patients with MDS who cannot receive ASCT. Micro-Abstract At present, no standard therapy is available for most patients with myelodysplastic syndrome. In this retrospective study, we analyze data from 42 patients with myelodysplastic syndrome treated with low-dose danazol. More than half achieved a response. Results show that danazol remains an attractive option because of its low cost and good safety profile in centers with reduced access to novel therapeutic alternatives.
