Transplantation in the Treatment of Primary Cutaneous Aggressive Epidermotropic Cytotoxic CD8-Positive T-Cell Lymphoma

Several studies have suggested that hematopoietic stem cell transplantation (HSCT) might provide a cure for primary cutaneous aggressive epidermotropic cytotoxic CD8-positive T-cell lymphoma (CD8+ PCAETL). We summarize published literature on this disease and present outcomes of 8 patients with CD8+ PCAETL treated at our institution. In our experience, allogeneic HSCT and the novel agents brentuximab and pralatrexate show substantial activity against this disease.

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...

Conclusion Allogeneic HSCT is a promising treatment modality for CD8+ PCAETL. Because of the aggressive nature of this disease and lack of sustained remission with currently available therapies, HSCT should be considered early in the course of treatment. Two novel agents, brentuximab and pralatrexate, showed significant activity against CD8+ PCAETL, and may be incorporated earlier in the treatment course. Micro-Abstract Several studies have suggested that hematopoietic stem cell transplantation (HSCT) might provide a cure for primary cutaneous aggressive epidermotropic cytotoxic CD8-positive T-cell lymphoma (CD8+ PCAETL). ...

We describe the clinicopathologic features of 17 patients who had a hematologic malignancy of various types, were treated, and subsequently developed a lymphoproliferative disorder (LPD). There were 10 men and 7 women with a median age of 59 years (range, 36 to 83 y). The primary hematologic neoplasms included: 5 chronic lymphocytic leukemia/small lymphocytic lymphoma, 3 plasma cell myeloma, 2 acute monoblastic leukemia, and 1 case each of mixed-phenotype acute leukemia, chronic myeloid leukemia, splenic marginal zone lymphoma, follicular lymphoma, mantle cell lymphoma, T-cell prolymphocytic leukemia, and peripheral...

We present a cohort of primarily non-Asian patients with advanced stage and relapsed/refractory ENKL. Our results demonstrate that achievement of complete response (CR) is imperative at all stages of disease in order to attain long-term disease control. The SMILE regimen was effective in relapsed/refractory disease to achieve complete remission. Autologous stem cell transplant should be strongly considered in patients with advanced ENKL who achieved CR, whereas allo-SCT can be considered for select patients who have not attained a CR.

Extra-nodal natural killer/T-cell lymphoma (ENKL) is a rare lymphoma representing approximately 5-10% of T-cell non-Hodgkin lymphomas diagnosed in the United States each year.1, 2 ENKL is universally associated with Epstein-Barr virus (EBV) infection, and is more frequent in Asian, Central American and South American populations, where it constitutes 5-15% of all lymphomas.3-5 Patients with advanced stage ENKL (stage III-IV) and relapsed/refractory early stage disease are treated with systemic chemotherapy with or without radiotherapy.

Conclusions The significant variability in treatments used for PTCL emphasizes the lack of consensus therapy in this rarer lymphoma and calls for additional organized prospective and registry studies to evaluate comparative effectiveness. Teaser Peripheral T-cell lymphomas (PTCLs) represent a rare and heterogeneous group of malignancies which do not have consensus treatment recommendations. This retrospective review of 93 patients treated in community settings demonstrated considerable variability in treatment strategies. First-line CHOP and CHOP-like regimens were used in 74% of patients, providing 4-year overall survival...

PTCL constitutes an umbrella of malignancies classified under Non-Hodgkin's Lymphoma (NHL). Due to the overall poor response to treatment, a multidisciplinary treatment approach including hematopoietic stem cell transplantation (HSCT) is considered.
