Authors: Kienle DL, Stilgenbauer S Abstract Introduction: PI3K inhibition with idelalisib (at that time CAL-101) was at the forefront of the development of molecularly targeted therapies in Chronic Lymphocytic Leukemia (CLL)/Small Lymphocytic Leukemia (SLL) and follicular lymphoma. However, after initial approval, subsequent trials identified specific immune-mediated and infectious toxicity that led to a reduced use and stopped the further development of this agent. PI3K inhibition as a treatment paradigm fell out of favor compared to other developments such as BTK or BCL2 inhibitors.Areas covered: This review prov...

The cancer experience may be marked by repeat stressors and/or traumas. The aim of our study was to assess traumatic events in a group of patients diagnosed with lymphoma and to determine which of these contribute to the development of Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder/PTSD. Two weeks after receiving a diagnosis of lymphoma, patients were referred for an assessment of peritraumatic distress (using the Peritraumatic Distress Inventory/PDI) and peritraumatic dissociation (using the Peritraumatic Dissociative Experiences Questionnaire/PDEQ). Three months after the diagnosis, we recorded the following parameters: the patients' wo...

Abstract OBJECTIVES: In the Asian population, patterns and risk factors for de novo malignancies after solid-organ transplant are not well understood. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Insurance claims from Taiwan's National Health Institute Research Database from 1997 to 2011 revealed 687 deceased-donor heart transplant recipients, 5038 kidney transplant recipients (50% living related-donor, 50% deceased-donor transplants), and 2127 liver transplant recipients (mainly living related-donor transplants, 30% deceased-donor transplants). During the follow-up period, rates of malignancy incidence were calculated with standa...

CONCLUSION: The incidence rates of lymphoma in the Golestan province are relatively high and vary geographically, with a higher incidence observed in the western area. Such differences may reflect unknown lifestyle and environmental determinants linked to ethnic susceptibility differing between the two areas. PMID: 32126782 [PubMed - in process]
