PROCLIPI: registry & establishment of a prognostic index for MF and SS
Establishing a registry and prognostic index for mycosis fungoides, the most common type of cutaneous T-cell lymphoma (CTCL), and Szary syndrome, a rare type of CTCL, is important to improve the mana... Author: VJHemOnc Added: 10/02/2018
AbstractCutaneous T-cell lymphomas (CTCLs) are a group of non-Hodgkin ’s lymphomas that present in the skin. In early-stage disease, the course is generally chronic and indolent; however, in advanced stages of disease, therapies rarely provide long-lasting responses, and the only potential curative therapy is allogeneic hematopoietic stem-cell transplantation. This has led to the search for novel targeted therapies to better treat more advanced stages of CTCLs that cannot be controlled by typical treatment regimens. One area of advancement has been the development of antibodies specifically targeted to cell types tha...
Conclusion: Our data reveal that the frequency of MF, Burkitt lymphoma, and Hodgkin lymphoma are considerably higher, whereas follicular lymphoma rates are considerably lower than in most other parts of the world. PMID: 30384569 [PubMed - in process]
In this study, we investigated the roles of CD137L and CD137 in cutaneous T-cell lymphoma (CTCL), represented by mycosis fungoides and Sézary syndrome. Flow cytometric analysis showed that primary Sézary cells and CTCL cell lines (Hut78, MyLa, HH, SeAx, and MJ) aberrantly expressed CD137L. CD137L expression by tumor cells in CTCL was also confirmed by immunohistochemistry. Anti-CD137L–neutralizing antibody inhibited proliferation, survival, CXCR4-mediated migration, and in vivo growth in CTCL cell lines through inhibition of phosphorylation of AKT, extracellular signal-regulated kinase 1/2, p38 MAPK, an...
ConclusionsAlthough PC-PTCL-NOS is an aggressive neoplasm, rare cases such as this might have a long-term survival. Furthermore, the late relapse mimicking MEITL is intriguing and exceptional, in spite the fact that MEITL is a primary intestinal T-cell lymphoma with a typical histopathology and immunophenotype. Detailed clinicopathological and molecular studies are mandatory to elucidate the clonal relationship of metachronous lymphomas, as this has important clinical implication for treatment. Evaluation of the non-tumoral intestinal mucosa for enteropathy and immunostaining for MATK might help to differentiate a mimicker from a true MEITL.
Abstract: Cutaneous peripheral T-cell lymphoma, not otherwise specified represents a “waste basket” of all cases that cannot be put into another of the categories of mature cutaneous T-cell lymphoma. Previously, the sudden multifocal development of cutaneous CD4+ tumors without preceding a patch or plaque stage was classified as d'emblée form of mycosis fungoides (MF). Currently, the term “MF” reserved only for the classic Alibert–Bazin type characterized by the evolution of patches, plaques, and tumors or for variants showing a similar clinical course. The authors describe a 75-year-...
