Single-agent ibrutinib is an effective therapy for three types of non-Hodgkin lymphoma: chronic lymphocytic leukaemia (CLL) and small lymphocytic lymphoma, both in relapsed and refractory cases and as a frontline treatment; relapsed and refractory mantle cell lymphoma; and Waldenstrom's macroglobulinaemia in patients who have been treated previously with a different medication. This novel agent has changed the landscape for the aforementioned three subtypes of lymphoma therapies as an oral alternative to traditional chemoimmunotherapy...

The B-cell receptor (BCR) pathway plays an important role in the survival, proliferation and trafficking of cancer cells in a variety of B-cell malignancies. Recently, a number of agents have been developed to target various components of the BCR pathway. One such target is Bruton's tyrosine kinase (BTK), a Tec family kinase member found near the cell membrane that is involved in upstream BCR signaling. The biological function of BTK in several B-cell lymphoid malignancies has led to the development of the oral BTK inhibitor ibrutinib...

Post-transplant lymphoproliferative disorders (PTLD) are a heterogeneous and potentially fatal group of neoplasms arising in an immunodeficient environment in the background of viral antigenic stimulation. PTLD is rare, with an incidence in solid organ transplant recipients typically less than 20% [1]. For aggressive, monomorphic cases, current guidelines recommend reduced immunosuppression in addition to chemoimmunotherapy, which generally consists of R-CHOP [1]. Nevertheless, prognosis is poor with 5-year overall survival (OS) rates of only 40-60% [1]...

Gene-expression profiling and next-generation sequencing have defined diffuse large B-cell lymphoma (DLBCL), the most common lymphoma diagnosis, as a heterogeneous group of subentities. Despite ongoing explosions of data illuminating disparate pathogenic mechanisms, however, the five-drug chemoimmunotherapy combination R-CHOP remains the frontline standard treatment. This has not changed in 15 years, since the anti-CD20 monoclonal antibody rituximab was added to the CHOP backbone, which first entered use in the 1970s...

Burkitt lymphoma (BL) is the most common histological subtype of non-Hodgkin lymphoma (NHL) in children and adolescents. Through the introduction of short intensive multi-agent chemoimmunotherapy, survival has improved significantly over the past 30 years. However, this successful approach is limited by significant chemotherapy-induced acute toxicity and risk of developing resistant disease, demonstrating the need to identify less toxic and targeted therapies. We analysed the comparative genomic signature and targetable signalling pathways in paediatric BL (PEBL) samples from the Children's Oncology Group study (ANHL01P1) by genomic profiling and selected genes were confirmed by quantitative real time polymerase chain reaction...

Background: Ibrutinib, idelalisib, and venetoclax are approved for treating CLL patients in the United States. However, there is no guidance as to their optimal sequence. Patients and methods: We conducted a multicenter, retrospective analysis of CLL patients treated with kinase inhibitors (KIs) or venetoclax. We examined demographics, discontinuation reasons, overall response rates (ORR), survival, and post-KI salvage strategies. Primary endpoint was progression-free survival (PFS)...

The treatment of relapsed/refractory (RR) CLL has been revolutionized by the advent of the new oral inhibitors of B-cell receptor (BCR) signaling and the pro-survival protein, B-cell lymphoma 2 (BCL2). Additionally, new and more potent monoclonal antibodies against CD20 have replaced/may replace rituximab in many settings. Areas covered: Herein, we review the entire therapeutic landscape of RR CLL, with particular attention to the new small-molecule kinase inhibitors and BH3-mimetics. We discuss preclinical data with these agents in CLL, cover available efficacy and safety information, and examine potential resistance mechanisms and possible rational combinations to circumvent them...

For the majority of patients with newly diagnosed follicular lymphoma (FL), current treatments, while not curative, allow for long remission durations. However, several important needs remain unaddressed. Studies have consistently shown that approximately 20% of patients with FL experience disease progression within 2 years of first-line treatment, and consequently have a 50% risk of death in 5 years. Better characterization of this group of patients at diagnosis may provide insight into those in need of alternate or intensive therapies, facilitate a precision approach to inform clinical trials, and allow for improved patient counseling...

Following a multivariant analysis we demonstrated that children and adolescents with Burkitt lymphoma (BL) and a 13q14.3 deletion have a significant decrease in event free survival (EFS) despite identical short intensive multi-agent chemotherapy. However, how this deletion in the 13q14.3 region is associated with a significant decrease in EFS in children and adolescents with BL is largely unknown. The gene Deleted in Lymphocytic Leukemia 1 (DLEU1) is located in the region of 13q14.3. Here, we report that DLEU1 expression is implicated in the regulation of BL programmed cell death, cell proliferation, and expression of apoptotic genes in transcription activator-like effector nuclease (TALEN)s-induced DLEU1 knockdown and DLEU1 overexpressing BL cell lines...

Near-infrared photoimmunotherapy (NIR-PIT) is a new class of molecular targeted cancer therapy based on antibody-photoabsorber conjugates and NIR light irradiation. Recent studies have shown effective tumor control, including that of human epidermal growth factor receptor 2 (HER2)-positive cancer, by selective molecular targeting with NIR-PIT. However, the depth of NIR light penetration limits its use. Trastuzumab emtansine (T-DM1) is an antibody-drug conjugate consisting of the monoclonal antibody trastuzumab linked to the cytotoxic agent maytansinoid DM1...

Akt is a downstream target of B cell receptor signaling and is a central regulator of CLL cell survival. We aim to investigate the safety and efficacy of the Akt inhibitor MK-2206 in combination with bendamustine and rituximab (BR) in relapsed and/or refractory CLL in a phase I/II study. A standard phase I design was used with cohorts of three plus three patients to determine the maximum tolerated dose (MTD) of MK-2206 in combination with BR in relapsed CLL. Single-agent MK-2206 (weekly dosed) was administered one-week in advance before BR on cycle 1 and subsequently was given with BR at the same time for cycle 2-6...

Treatment of chronic lymphocytic leukemia (CLL) has advanced with the introduction of chemoimmunotherapy (CIT) agents that have improved the outcomes of frontline therapy. However, most treated patients will relapse and require subsequent therapy. This review focuses on recent advances in the treatment of relapsed or refractory CLL. Until recently, treatment options for relapsed CLL were of limited efficacy. Retreatment with fludarabine, cyclophosphamide, and rituximab (FCR) was recommended for patients with a durable response to first-line FCR, although acquired genetic aberrations, impaired marrow reserve, and comorbidities often made this suboptimal therapy for many patients...

Pharmacological agents that inhibit enzymes of the B-cell receptor (BCR) pathway are of increasing importance in the treatment of B-cell malignancies. These include inhibitors of Bruton tyrosine kinase (BTK), phosphatidylinositol 3-kinase (PI3K), splenic tyrosine kinase and protein kinase Cβ. Two agents are already approved in the USA and Europe: ibrutinib, a BTK inhibitor, for the treatment of chronic lymphatic leukaemia (CLL), mantle cell lymphoma (MCL) and Waldenström's macroglobulinemia; and idelalisib, a PI3Kδ inhibitor, for the treatment of CLL and follicular lymphoma...

The CD20 marker continues to be exploited as a therapeutic target for non-Hodgkin's lymphoma. Obinutuzumab is part of a new generation of anti-CD20 monoclonal antibodies, which are synthesized using molecular engineering technology, resulting in novel target epitopes and unprecedented optimization of antibody-dependent cellular cytotoxicity and antibody-dependent cellular phagocytosis. Rituximab is the current gold standard for anti-CD20 therapy, yet despite outstanding results published over the past decade, many patients continue to relapse after anti-CD20 regimens...

Chronic lymphocytic leukemia (CLL) and small lymphocytic lymphoma (SLL) are different manifestations of the same disease and managed in much the same way. The advent of novel CD20 monoclonal antibodies led to the development of effective chemoimmunotherapy regimens. More recently, small molecule inhibitors targeting kinases involved in a number of critical signaling pathways and a small molecule inhibitor of the BCL-2 family of proteins have demonstrated activity for the treatment of patients with CLL/SLL. These NCCN Guidelines Insights highlight important updates to the NCCN Clinical Practice Guidelines in Oncology (NCCN Guidelines) for CLL/SLL for the treatment of patients with newly diagnosed or relapsed/refractory CLL/SLL...

Chronic lymphocytic leukemia (CLL) is a neoplastic disorder of mature B lymphocytes. While traditionally treated with combinations of chemoimmunotherapy, the therapeutic options for CLL have expanded in recent years with the emergence of novel oral agents, such as the Bruton tyrosine kinase inhibitor ibrutinib, that are well tolerated and highly efficacious. The role of novel agents in the first-line setting is now being investigated in head-to-head clinical trials. In this discussion paper, we consider the role of novel agents in the up-front setting, using three case studies of treatment-naive patients to highlight how choice of therapy may be individualized depending on the characteristics of the patient and the disease, as well as patient preferences...

The treatment of diffuse large B cell lymphoma (DLBCL) is generally based on multidrug chemotherapy, for instance the therapy with rituximab together with cyclophosphamide, vincristine, doxorubicin, and prednisone (R-CHOP). A significant proportion of DLBCL patients benefit from rituximab-based chemoimmunotherapy. However, among patients with DLBCL toxic effects due to therapy treatment are still very frequent, as well as inter-individual differences in the outcomes of patients even having similar stage, histological grade and histopathological type of the tumor...
