ConclusionsThis targeted methylation assay detected cancer signal across>20 cancer types with a single, fixed, low false positive rate and highly accurate TOO localization. These data support the feasibility of a single test that can screen for multiple cancers.Clinical trial identificationNCT02889978, NCT03085888.Editorial acknowledgementSarah Prins, PhD (GRAIL, Inc.), and Megan P.

This study aimed to analyze the role of postoperative treatment for BC in the development of subsequent HM. Using the French National Health Data System, we examined the HM risks in patients diagnosed with an incident primary breast cancer between 2007 and 2015, who underwent surgery as first-line treatment for BC. Main outcomes were acute myeloid leukemia (AML), Myelodysplastic syndrome (MDS), myeloproliferative neoplasms (MPNs), multiple myeloma (MM), Hodgkin’s lymphoma or non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma (HL/NHL), and acute lymphoblastic leukemia or lymphocytic lymphoma (ALL/LL). Analyses were censored at HM o...

In this study, we reported the management of a patient with recurrent and refractory multiple myeloma and three patients with acute lymphocytic leukemia who suffered CRS during CAR-T treatment. The early application of tocilizumab, an anti-IL-6 receptor antibody, according to toxicity grading and clinical manifestation is recommended especially for patients who suffer continuous hyperpyrexia, hypotensive shock, acute respiratory failure, and whose CRS toxicities deteriorated rapidly. Moreover, low doses of dexamethasone (5 –10 mg/day) were used for refractory CRS not responding to tocilizumab. The effective managemen...

We report results of preclinical studies and clinical trials, and discuss the mechanism of action of SINEs and their effects in multiple myeloma, non-Hodgkin lymphomas, lymphoblastic leukemia, and acute and chronic myeloid leukemia. In the future, the numerous experimental studies currently underway will allow us to define the role of SINEs and will possibly permit these substances to be introduced into daily clinical practice.

In this study, we first tested the role of Peg-Dox in the killing of myeloid cell lines and of primary myeloid leukemia cells. Then, a Peg-Dox-based protocol was used to treat patients with myeloid neoplasms. The results showed that the Peg-Dox and Peg-Dox-based protocols had a similar killing ability in myeloid cell lines and in primary myeloid leukemia cells compared to that of conventional doxorubicin. The complete remission rate was 87.5% and 100% for patients with refractory/relapsed acute myeloid leukemia and myelodysplastic syndrome with excess blasts, respectively, after treatment with Peg-Dox. All patients develop...

Anthracyclines have been in clinical use for decades due to their anti-neoplastic effects in many cancers including breast cancer, leukaemia, lymphoma, sarcoma, lung cancer and multiple myeloma, however the effective use of these agents is limited by the danger of cardiotoxicity [1]. Incidence of cardiotoxicity in patients treated with anthracyclines varies according to cardiotoxicity definition, but has been reported as high as 26% for heart failure and 36% for left ventricular dysfunction [2,3], with the major predicting factor being anthracycline cumulative dose.
