New Treatment for Non - Hodgkin Lymphoma Approved
No optimal salvage therapy for relapsed/refractory aggressive histological types of non-Hodgkin lymphoma exists. We explored a combination of single-agent lenalidomide following gemcitabine, rituximab, oxaliplatin combination ( “GROC-Rev”) in 33 patients. We observed a response rate of 61% (39% complete response rate) and 3-year overall survival of 47%, superior to previous experience. GROC-Rev is a new salvage regimen with encouraging results.
A novel antibody-drug conjugate (ADC) for adults with refractory or relapsing diffuse large B-cell lymphoma (DLBCL), the most common form of non-Hodgkin lymphoma, has received accelerated FDA approval. Up to 40% of patients with DLBCL will relapse.
AbstractPurpose of ReviewIMiDs are a class of biologic agents with immunomodulatory, anti-angiogenic, and direct anti-cancer activities. This review summarizes current data on clinical development and application of IMiDs in non-Hodgkin lymphoma (NHL) subtypes, focusing primarily on lenalidomide, with additional discussion on managing common side effects.Recent FindingsImproved upon the prototype thalidomide, the second-generation compound lenalidomide has enhanced immunological and anti-cancer properties with fewer side effects, while next-generation small molecule cereblon/E3 ubiquitin ligase modulator CC-122 is in early...
ConclusionsBaseline TMTV and TLG are both strong independent prognostic factors for pediatric B-NHL and provide a potential approach to aid in risk sub-stratification, especially in patients with high-risk disease.
Conclusion: When clinicians encounter a lesion associated with mandibular canal widening, they should immediately consider these entities in the differential diagnosis. Doing so will help dentists make more accurate diagnoses and develop better treatment plans based on patients' radiographs. PMID: 31281785 [PubMed]
CONCLUSIONS: NRP-1 exhibited higher expression in lymphomas, and it was positively expressed in EBV-positive lymphomas. Moreover, highly expressed NRP-1 can be used as an undesirable independent prognostic factor in NHL. PMID: 31282408 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]
u C, Doshi P, Pérez-Galán P Abstract CD38 is expressed in several types of non-Hodgkin lymphoma and constitutes a promising target for antibody-based therapy. Daratumumab (Darzalex) is a first-in-class anti-CD38 antibody approved for the treatment of relapsed/refractory multiple myeloma. It has also demonstrated clinical activity in Waldenstrom macroglobulinaemia and amyloidosis. Here, we have evaluated the activity and mechanism of action of daratumumab in preclinical in vitro and in vivo models of mantle cell lymphoma, follicular lymphoma and diffuse large B cell lymphoma, as monotherapy or in comb...
CONCLUSIONS: In in-silico experiments, optimal protocols achieve significant gains over standard protocols when considering overall survival probabilities. Our optimization algorithm enables us to efficiently tackle this numerical problem with a large dimensionality. The in-vivo implications of our in-silico results remain to be explored.

SAN FRANCISCO - A California man on June 21 sued Monsanto Co. in California federal court, contending that he has developed non-Hodgkin lymphoma (NHL) as a result of exposure to glyphosate, the active ingredient in the herbicide Roundup, which he alleges Monsanto has misrepresented as a safe product (Saul Cohen v. Monsanto Company, No. 19-3632, N.D. Calif.).
