Omega-3 fatty acid supplements, hypothyroidism could lower risk of T-zone lymphoma in dogs

(Morris Animal Foundation) Dogs that receive omega-3 fatty acid supplements or have hypothyroidism may be less likely to develop T-zone lymphoma (TZL). Those are two findings from Morris Animal Foundation-funded researchers at Colorado State University, who studied associations of environment and health history of the disease among golden retrievers. They published their results in the Journal of Veterinary Internal Medicine.

Authors: Díaz Flaqué MC, Cayrol MF, Sterle HA, Del Rosario Aschero M, Díaz Albuja JA, Isse B, Farías RN, Cerchietti L, Rosemblit C, Cremaschi GA Abstract Thyroid hormones (THs) - 3,3',5-triiodo-L-thyronine (T3) and L-thyroxine (T4) - are important regulators of the metabolism and physiology of most normal tissues. Cytochrome P450 family 3A members are drug metabolizing enzymes involved in the activation and detoxification of several drugs. CYP3A4 is the major enzyme involved in the metabolism of chemotherapeutic drugs. In this work, we demonstrate that THs induce a significant increase i...

Hui Zhou, Xiaoyan Fu, Qian Li and Ting Niu* Department of Hematology and Research Laboratory of Hematology, West China Hospital, Sichuan University, Chengdu, China Background: Immune checkpoint inhibition therapy with monoclonal antibody against programmed cell death protein 1 (PD-1), including nivolumab and pembrolizumab, has demonstrated powerful clinical efficacy in the treatment of advanced cancers. However, there is no evidence-based systematic review on the safety and efficacy of anti-PD-1 antibody in treating lymphoma. Methods: To evaluate the safety and efficacy of nivolumab/pembrolizumab, we analyzed clin...

Roser Calvo* Patient Safety, Safety Science, AstraZeneca Pharmaceuticals, Gaithersburg, MD, United States Immune-related hematological adverse events are amongst the rare but potentially life-threatening complications of immune checkpoint inhibitors. The spectrum of these toxicities is broadening as the number of patients exposed to these agents is increasing. Yet, they are still relatively unknown to many clinicians, possibly due to a lack of specific diagnostic criteria, which poses a challenge for their recognition and proper reporting, and partly due to their low incidence, often too low to be noted in most c...

Scleromyxedema and lichen myxedematosus (LM) are rare disorders that fall along the spectrum of primary cutaneous mucinoses. Scleromyxedema is a systemic form that classically presents with generalized waxy papules, sclerodermoid eruption, and monoclonal gammopathy; LM is a localized form limited to the skin that classically presents with white, firm, waxy papules and lacks monoclonal gammopathy. According to diagnostic criteria established in 2001, the diagnosis of both conditions requires absence of thyroid disease. However, atypical cases that lack monoclonal gammopathy and that present with hypothyroidism have been rep...

ConclusionsTD induced by nivolumab is a common and heterogeneous irAE. Thyrotoxicosis develops earlier than hypothyroidism. A pattern consistent with a transient thyroiditis followed by hypothyroidism was observed in one-third of patients. Our results suggest that patients with NSCLC and nivolumab-induced TD might have better survival.

ListAbstractINCB024360 is an oral inhibitor of the enzyme indoleamine 2,3-dioxygenase (IDO) which catalyzes the degradation of tryptophan (Trp) to Kynurenine (Kyn). Preclinical data suggest that IDO1 inhibition by INCB024360 will increase T cell proliferation, and decrease T regulatory cells and myeloid derived suppressor ce...

Conclusions: Our real-life experience confirms the efficacy of nivolumab in very heavily pretreated cHL patients with an ORR of 58%. The safety profile of our cohort is comparable with that previously reported in clinical trials with manageable side effects and low treatment related mortality. In our study the percentage of patients who bridged to transplantation was significantly higher to that previously reported indicating this preference for Spanish physicians. AlloHSCT post-nivolumab showed encouraging results and toxicity seemed comparable to that previously described with other treatment regimens.Authors thank Brist...

Conclusions: In pts with R/R NHL, active doses of Cami-T with acceptable safety profiles were identified for both B-cell and T-cell lymphoma during dose escalation of this study. Five out of the 10 pts on study with T-cell lymphoma treated in the 60, 80, or 100 µg/kg cohorts responded. Subtype-specific cohorts in the dose escalation portion of this study are underway to better define the recommended dose for expansion.Study sponsored by ADC Therapeutics. http://clinicaltrials.gov/show/NCT02432235.DisclosuresCollins: MSD: Consultancy, Honoraria; ADC Therapeutics: Consultancy, Honoraria, Research Funding; Roche: Consul...

Introduction: Approximately 77% of younger pts and 49% of older pts with newly diagnosed AML achieve CR after induction chemotherapy (chemo). The majority of pts who achieve CR eventually relapse, with only approximately 30% of pts maintaining CR for 3 yrs or longer. Long-term outcomes in pts maintaining 1st CR for at least 3 yrs (AML survivors) remain largely unknown. The purpose of this study was to investigate long-term outcomes in this subset of pts.Methods: We performed a chart review of pts with AML treated at our institution from 2000-2015 who achieved CR for at least 3 yrs after their initial chemo ± allogen...
