Authors: Nagpal SDS, Singh NP, Mishra P, Singh A Abstract Rheumatoid arthritis (RA) is a common rheumatological condition affecting the joints and has a wide range of extra-articular manifestations. A 69 year old male, known case of rheumatoid arthritis presented to our OPD with right lower limb redness and swelling, and left axillary lymph node swelling. Lymph node biopsy revealed a high grade diffuse large B-cell lymphoma with co-expression of c-myc and bcl-2 (double expressor). RA increases the risk of both Hodgkin's lymphoma (HL) and non-Hodgkin's Lymphoma (NHL). The association with diffuse large B-cell lympho...

(UNC Lineberger Comprehensive Cancer Center) UNC Lineberger Comprehensive Cancer Center researchers have discovered a hyperactive cell signal that contributes to tumor growth in primary effusion lymphoma, an aggressive type of non-Hodgkin lymphoma caused by infection with the Kaposi's sarcoma-associated herpesvirus (human herpesvirus-8). They also reported in the PNAS paper that they've developed an experimental therapeutic, UNC3810A, to block the signal and slow tumor growth.

The objective of this study was to develop a population-pharmacokinetic model of durvalumab in patients with various hematologic malignancies and to investigate the effects of demographic and disease factors on the pharmacokinetics in this population.MethodsA total of 1812 concentrations from 267 patients with myelodysplastic syndromes, acute myeloid leukemia, multiple myeloma, non-Hodgkin lymphoma, or Hodgkin lymphoma were included in the analysis.ResultsThe pharmacokinetics of durvalumab was adequately described by a two-compartment model with first-order elimination. A decrease in durvalumab clearance over time was main...

Authors: Cannavale K, Xu H, Xu L, Sattayapiwat O, Rodriguez R, Bohac C, Page J, Chao C Abstract INTRODUCTION: Anemia is a common adverse effect of myelosuppressive chemotherapy, and the development of chemotherapy-induced anemia (CIA) is more common in patients with hematologic malignant tumors. OBJECTIVE: To assess the incidence and treatment pattern of CIA in patients diagnosed with non-Hodgkin lymphoma (NHL) from a large managed care organization in California. METHODS: Patients diagnosed with NHL between 2010 and 2012 were studied to provide an updated picture of CIA in current hematology-oncology pract...

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.
