Adult large T cell Lymphoma

Jennifer N Brudno, James N Kochenderfer
Chimeric antigen receptor (CAR) T-cell therapy is an effective new treatment for hematologic malignancies. Two CAR T-cell products are now approved for clinical use by the U.S. FDA: tisagenlecleucel for pediatric acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL) and adult diffuse large B-cell lymphoma subtypes (DLBCL), and axicabtagene ciloleucel for DLBCL. CAR T-cell therapies are being developed for multiple myeloma, and clear evidence of clinical activity has been generated. A barrier to widespread use of CAR T-cell therapy is toxicity, primarily cytokine release syndrome (CRS) and neurologic toxicity...

BACKGROUND: Patients with diffuse large B-cell lymphoma that is refractory to primary and second-line therapies or that has relapsed after stem-cell transplantation have a poor prognosis. The chimeric antigen receptor (CAR) T-cell therapy tisagenlecleucel targets and eliminates CD19-expressing B cells and showed efficacy against B-cell lymphomas in a single-center, phase 2a study. METHODS: We conducted an international, phase 2, pivotal study of centrally manufactured tisagenlecleucel involving adult patients with relapsed or refractory diffuse large B-cell lymphoma who were ineligible for or had disease progression after autologous hematopoietic stem-cell transplantation...

BACKGROUND: Adult T-cell leukemia-lymphoma (ATL) is a mature T-cell malignancy caused by human T-cell leukemia virus type I infection and is known to exhibit cutaneous involvement in 50% or more patients. Few studies have evaluated the clinicopathological significance of programmed death-1 (PD-1) expression in the cutaneous lesions of ATL. METHODS: Skin biopsy specimens from 29 ATL patients with cutaneous lesions were evaluated regarding the clinicopathological feature, survival outcome, and PD-1 expression level on infilitrated CD3+CD4 + CD25+ cells...

Adult T-cell leukemia (ATL) is an aggressive mature T-cell malignancy with a poor prognosis. The anti-C-C motif chemokine receptor 4 (CCR4) antibody mogamulizumab (moga) reduces ATL cells and induces reconstitution of polyclonal T cells; however, ATL cases often remain resistant and moga sometimes causes fatal immunopathology. Epstein-Barr virus (EBV)-related B-cell lymphoma develops in severely immunocompromised subjects, and is particularly associated with impaired T-cell immunity. Here, we report an ATL patient who had received conventional chemotherapy plus moga, and subsequently developed EBV-related diffuse large B-cell lymphoma (DLBCL) of the central nervous system...

PURPOSE: Preclinical studies suggest SYK and JAK contribute to tumor intrinsic and microenvironment-derived survival signals. The pharmacodynamics of cerdulatinib, a dual SYK/JAK inhibitor, and associations with tumor response were investigated. EXPERIMENTAL DESIGN: In a phase I dose-escalation study in adults with relapsed/refractory B-cell malignancies, cerdulatinib was administered orally to sequential dose-escalation cohorts using once-daily or twice-daily schedules...

PURPOSE: Hemophagocytic lymphohistiocytosis (HLH) in adults is rare but frequently fatal. Diagnosis is often delayed and treatment approaches vary significantly in contrast to the protocol-driven approach typically used in pediatric HLH. To improve care of these complex patients, this study retrospectively examined the prevalence, clinical characteristics, therapies and outcomes of adult HLH patients at two large tertiary care centers. METHODS: Adult patients with HLH confirmed by retrospective review of electronic medical records using HLH2004 criteria during admissions to the University of Texas Southwestern and Parkland Memorial Hospitals between June 2007 and June 2017 were studied...

Ewing sarcoma/primitive neuroectodermal tumor (Ewing/PNET sarcomas or EPS) are a group of round cell tumors. Malignant round cell tumors form a large and diverse group that includes rhabdomyosarcoma, synovial sarcoma, non-Hodgkin's lymphoma, neuroblastoma, hepatoblastoma, Wilm's tumor, desmoplastic small round cell tumor, and other morphologically similar entities. Differential diagnosis of Ewing sarcoma/primitive neuroectodermal tumor (Ewing/PNET sarcomas or EPS) is difficult. In addition to morphology and immunohistochemistry (IHC), differential diagnosis of these tumors is based on molecular analysis of the EWSR1 gene rearrangement using fluorescent in situ hybridization (FISH) technique...

Retinoic acid-related drugs have shown promising pre-clinical activity in Adult T-cell Leukemia/Lymphoma, but RORC signaling has not been explored. Therefore, we investigated transcriptome-wide interactions of the RORC pathway in HTLV-1 and ATL, using our own and publicly available gene expression data for ATL and other leukemias. Gene expression data from ATL patients were analyzed using WGCNA to determine gene modules and their correlation to clinical and molecular data. Both PBMCs and CD4+ T-cells showed decreased RORC expression in four different ATL cohorts...

PURPOSE: Axicabtagene ciloleucel (axi-cel) was recently approved for treatment of relapsed or refractory (R/R) large B-cell lymphoma (LBCL) following two or more prior therapies. As the first CAR T-cell therapy available for adults in the US, there are important questions about clinical and economic value. The objective of this study was to assess the cost-effectiveness of axi-cel compared to salvage chemotherapy using a decision model and a US payer perspective. MATERIALS AND METHODS: A decision model was developed to estimate life years (LYs), quality-adjusted life years (QALYs), and lifetime cost for adult patients with R/R LBCL treated with axi-cel vs salvage chemotherapy (R-DHAP)...

T cell non-Hodgkin lymphomas (T-NHLs) are aggressive malignancies which have a high risk of life-threatening complications. However, their prognosis in the intensive care unit (ICU) setting has not yet been assessed. We conducted a study including 87 ICU patients either with newly diagnosed T-NHLs or those undergoing first-line therapy admitted between January 1, 2000, and December 31, 2014. The primary subtypes were peripheral T cell lymphoma (PTCL) (n = 41, 47%), anaplastic large-cell lymphoma (ALCL) (n = 13, 15%), and adult T-leukaemia/lymphoma (ATLL) (n = 11, 13%)...

Adult T-cell leukemia/lymphoma (ATLL) is an uncommon neoplasm of mature T lymphocytes associated with infection by human T-lymphotropic virus 1 (HTLV-1), which is increasing in incidence in areas of the United States with large immigrant populations. Human T-lymphotrophic virus 1 infection is asymptomatic in most patients and has been associated with ATLL as well as tropical spastic paraparesis. Because there is considerable histologic overlap with other cutaneous T-cell lymphomas, high suspicion and clinical features must be present to make the diagnosis of ATLL...

The clinical course of lymphoma depends on the indolent or aggressive nature of the disease. Hence, the optimal management of lymphoma needs a correct diagnosis and classification as B cell, T-cell or natural killer (NK)/T-cell as well as indolent or high-grade type lymphoma. The current consensus statement, developed by experts in the field across India, is intended to help healthcare professionals manage lymphomas in adults over 18 years of age. However, it should be noted that the information provided may not be appropriate to all patients and individual patient circumstances may dictate alternative approaches...

Adult T-cell leukemia/lymphoma (ATL) is an aggressive peripheral T-cell neoplasm that occurs only in patients with human T-cell leukemia virus type 1. No large study or randomized trial investigating radiotherapy (RT) for ATL has been performed. We retrospectively reviewed 55 courses of RT for 41 consecutive patients with ATL who underwent RT between 2000 and 2016 at our institutions. The results showed that RT for local ATL lesions can achieve symptomatic improvement in 92% of cases. Local remission, either complete remission (CR) or partial response (PR), was achieved in 100% of the patients (CR: 89%, PR: 11%) with ≥40 Gy irradiation...

Peripheral T-cell lymphomas (PTCLs) represent a heterogeneous group of diseases, with low incidence and unique epidemiology and pathobiology; they are usually clinically aggressive, with poor outcomes. There have been significant advances in our understanding of the molecular and signaling alterations seen in these malignancies. These observations have led to novel therapeutic strategies that have had a meaningful impact on outcomes. This two-part series highlights the most important aspects of PTCLs and describes current treatment options and investigative opportunities...
