Authors: Fratoni S, Zanelli M, Zizzo M, Sanguedolce F, Aimola V, Cerrone G, Ricci L, Filosa A, Martino G, Fara AM, Annessi V, Soriano A, Ascani S Abstract Follicular lymphoma is a neoplasm derived from follicle center B cells, typically both centrocytes and centroblasts, in variable proportions according to the lymphoma grading. The pattern of growth may be entirely follicular, follicular and diffuse and rarely completely diffuse. It represents the second most common non-Hodgkin lymphoma, after diffuse large B-cell lymphoma and it is the most common low-grade mature B-cell lymphoma in Western countries. In the majo...

Precursor B-cell lymphoblastic lymphoma (PBLL) is a rare subtype of non-Hodgkin lymphoma originating from B-cell precursors. PBLL, as a solitary mass lesion affecting the central nervous system without leukemic disease at presentation, is quite uncommon. Here we report a rare PBLL case with Philadelphia chromosome positivity. The 44-year-old male presented a solitary bulky mass primarily involving the left frontotemporal lobes and extended into the infratemporal fossa. Pretreatment PET/CT imaging showed avid 18F-fluorodeoxyglucose (18F-FDG) uptake of the lesion. By aggressive chemotherapy and imatinib maintenance treatment...

Abstract Hematologic B-cell malignancies, which have varying behavior patterns, disease processes, and treatment responses, include non-Hodgkin lymphoma, leukemias, and myeloma. Although monoclonal antibodies and other agents have led to dramatic advances in the treatment of B-cell malignancies, the development of small molecules have enhanced the ability to treat and manage these malignancies and their adverse events (AEs). Oncology nurses need to be educated on the unique side effects for each class of these agents so that they can administer interventions to prevent and manage AEs in patients. PMID: 321960...

Frontline treatment for patients with indolent non-Hodgkin lymphoma (iNHL) often includes immunochemotherapy. Although most patients respond to initial treatment, relapse is common. Recent results from the phase III AUGMENT trial showed that combining rituximab with the immunomodulatory drug lenalidomide (R2) significantly improved efficacy over rituximab monotherapy in patients with recurrent iNHL. As a result of these data, R2 was approved in the US (FDA) and Japan (PMDA) for previously treated adult patients with follicular and marginal zone lymphoma; and by the European Medicine Agency and Swissmedic for previously tre...

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...

AbstractPrimary Sj ögren’s syndrome (pSS) is an autoimmune disease characterised by an increased risk for non-Hodgkin lymphoma (NHL) development. Ectopic germinal centre (GC) in the salivary gland is associated with increased NHL risk in pSS, and the chemokine CXCL13 is implicated in B-cell migration and GC formati on. Serum CXCL13 concentrations were quantified by ELISA in 48 healthy individuals, 273 pSS patients without NHL (pSS-nonL), and 38 pSS patients with NHL (pSS-NHL+) from the United Kingdom Primary Sjögren’s Syndrome Registry cohort. PSS-nonL patients were stratified into low risk (LR), mode...

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...
