Chronic lymphocytic leukaemia (CLL) is a malignancy of CD5(+) B cells that is characterized by the accumulation of small, mature-appearing lymphocytes in the blood, marrow and lymphoid tissues. Signalling via surface immunoglobulin, which constitutes the major part of the B cell receptor, and several genetic alterations play a part in CLL pathogenesis, in addition to interactions between CLL cells and other cell types, such as stromal cells, T cells and nurse-like cells in the lymph nodes. The clinical progression of CLL is heterogeneous and ranges from patients who require treatment soon after diagnosis to others who do not require therapy for many years, if at all...

Unlike chemoimmunotherapy regimens, which are given for a defined period, ibrutinib, a first-in-class Bruton's kinase inhibitor, allows most patients with CLL to remain on treatment for an extended period. Our experience, supported by sequential CT scan images, suggests that long-term ibrutinib promotes a high response rate that improves in quality with time.

REVIEW
Tadeusz Robak, Stephan Stilgenbauer, Alessandra Tedeschi
Although chemoimmunotherapy prolongs survival and as such, is the standard of care for treatment-naïve patients, its effectiveness may be reduced by associated toxicity and dose reductions. In addition, it has been associated with the development of myelosuppression and secondary neoplasms; treatments are hence needed which offer greater survival and lowered toxicity. A range of new targeted agents, ibrutinib, idelalisib and venetoclax, have demonstrated such a balance in a second-line setting, offering CLL patients durable remissions and a modest toxicity profile...

Georgios Pongas, Bruce D Cheson
In chronic lymphocytic leukemia (CLL) and non-Hodgkin lymphomas (NHLs), B-cell receptor signaling leads to activation of the phosphatidylinositol 3-kinase (PI3K) pathway. Idelalisib, a PI3Kδ inhibitor was approved in 2014 by the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) in combination with rituximab for the treatment of patients with CLL for whom single-agent rituximab would be considered appropriate and as a single agent for patients with relapsed small lymphocytic lymphoma (SLL) and relapsed follicular lymphoma (FL)...

BACKGROUND: Colorectal cancer (CRC) is among one of the top common cancers worldwide. Developing novel comprehensive treatment strategies is critical for improving survival of late stage CRC patients. Recent advances in immune checkpoint blockades provided a novel strategy for treating cancers via stimulating the antitumor immune response. However, the effects of immune checkpoint blockades were limited in CRC due to intrinsic resistance. Oxaliplatin (OXA) based chemotherapy was the foundation of CRC adjuvant chemotherapy...

Purpose Double-hit lymphomas (DHLs) and double-expressor lymphomas (DELs) are subtypes of diffuse large B-cell lymphoma (DLBCL) associated with poor outcomes after standard chemoimmunotherapy. Data are limited regarding outcomes of patients with relapsed or refractory (rel/ref) DEL or DHL who undergo autologous stem-cell transplantation (ASCT). We retrospectively studied the prognostic impact of DEL and DHL status on ASCT outcomes in patients with rel/ref DLBCL. Methods Patients with chemotherapy-sensitive rel/ref DLBCL who underwent ASCT at two institutions and in whom archival tumor material was available were enrolled...

Purpose We compared the efficacy of ofatumumab (O) versus rituximab (R) in combination with cisplatin, cytarabine, and dexamethasone (DHAP) salvage treatment, followed by autologous stem-cell transplantation (ASCT) in patients with relapsed or refractory diffuse large B-cell lymphoma (DLBCL). Patients and Methods Patients with CD20(+) DLBCL age ≥ 18 years who had experienced their first relapse or who were refractory to first-line R-CHOP (cyclophosphamide, doxorubicin, vincristine, prednisone)-like treatment were randomly assigned between three cycles of R-DHAP or O-DHAP...

Purpose Follicular lymphoma (FL) is an indolent cancer, with effective but rarely curative treatment options. As a standard study end point for first-line FL therapy, progression-free survival (PFS) requires extended follow-up (median PFS, > 7 years). To provide patients with earlier access to newer therapies, an earlier end point to expedite clinical trials is needed. Our objective was to formally assess the complete response rate at 30 months (CR30) after initiation of induction therapy as a potential surrogate end point for PFS in first-line FL therapy...

Hepatitis C virus (HCV) infection is associated with the development of non-Hodgkin lymphomas. For aggressive lymphomas, such as diffuse large B-cell lymphoma (DLBCL), treatment of HCV infection is typically deferred in treatment-naive patients until after completion of lymphoma therapy [1, 2]. We report a case of HCV-associated stage IV DLBCL successfully treated concurrently using chemoimmunotherapy and a sofosbuvir-based antiviral regimen.

BACKGROUND: The standard of care for diffuse large B-cell lymphoma (DLBCL) relapsing after front-line therapy is high-dose chemotherapy and autologous stem cell transplantation (ASCT). Evidence has suggested that early relapses (ie, within 1 year) after this approach portends exceptionally poor outcomes. However, data examining relapses > 1 year after ASCT for patients with refractory or relapsed DLBCL are limited, in particular, in the rituximab era. We sought to examine the effect of early (≤ 1 year) and late (> 1 year) relapse after ASCT in a single-institution cohort of patients with relapsed and refractory DLBCL treated with chemoimmunotherapy...

Diffuse large B cell lymphoma (DLBCL) comprises multiple molecular and biological subtypes, resulting in a broad range of clinical outcomes. With standard chemoimmunotherapy, there remains an unacceptably high treatment failure rate in certain DLBCL subsets: activated B cell (ABC) DLBCL, double-hit lymphoma defined by the dual translocation of MYC and BCL2, dual protein-expressing lymphomas defined by the overexpression of MYC and BCL2, and older patients and those with central nervous system involvement. The main research challenges for DLBCL are to accurately identify molecular subsets and to determine if specific chemotherapy platforms and targeted agents offer differential benefit...

BACKGROUND: Radioimmunotherapy represents a potential option as consolidation after chemoimmunotherapy in patients with diffuse large B-cell lymphoma who are not candidates for transplantation. We aimed to assess activity and toxicity of fractionated radioimmunotherapy using anti-CD22 (90)Y-epratuzumab tetraxetan as consolidation after front-line induction chemoimmunotherapy in untreated elderly patients with diffuse large B-cell lymphoma. METHODS: We did a prospective, single-group, phase 2 trial at 28 hospitals in France, with patients recruited from 17 hospitals...

Representative clinical case. A 74-year-old male patient was diagnosed with stage 3 mantle cell lymphoma in 2012. Because he was ineligible for intensive treatment (age, previous myocardial infarction [MI]), he received rituximab plus cyclophosphamide, doxorubicin, vincristine, and prednisone (R-CHOP) chemoimmunotherapy for 6 cycles (reaching complete response) and then rituximab maintenance (RM) for 2 years. One year after the end of RM, he relapsed with disseminated disease. He was started on ibrutinib 560 mg/day...

Follicular lymphoma (FL) is the most common indolent lymphoma, and it has a long median overall survival (OS). However, the recent discovery of clinical and biological prognostic biomarkers in FL is shedding light on FL heterogeneity and the need for a precise and risk-stratified individual approach at diagnosis and relapse. Many FL patients who are asymptomatic with indolent disease can be vulnerable to the toxicity, emotional distress, and financial burden of overtreatment. Yet a subset of FL patients develop chemoresistance to standard chemoimmunotherapy, experience transformation to aggressive lymphoma and rapid progression, and represent the population most in need of novel therapies and curative approaches...

The prognosis of chronic lymphocytic leukemia (CLL) is very heterogeneous. Therefore, a plethora of prognostic factors has been identified to allow a better prediction of the individual prognosis of a given patient. The clinical staging systems by Rai and Binet have been the backbone of clinical management for several decades. The advent of genetic and biochemical markers, as well as next-generation sequencing has provided several markers that can predict the prognosis of patients with CLL. Using this knowledge, several scores have been created to improve predicting overall survival and/or treatment-free survival...

The advent of novel small-molecule inhibitors has transformed the treatment approaches for patients with chronic lymphocytic leukemia (CLL). These therapies are becoming increasingly used in patients with relapsed disease, patients with 17p deletion, and, as of recently, also in the frontline setting for previously untreated patients with CLL. Moreover, many of these are oral therapies that are significantly less myelosuppressive than chemoimmunotherapy. However, these agents have their own set of unique toxicities with which providers must gain familiarity...

Blastic plasmacytoid dendritic cell neoplasm (BPDCN) is a rare myeloid malignancy with no defined standard of care. BPDCN presents most commonly with skin lesions with or without extramedullary organ involvement before leukemic dissemination. As a result of its clinical ambiguity, differentiating BPDCN from benign skin lesions or those of acute myeloid leukemia with leukemia cutis is challenging. BPDCN is most easily defined by the phenotype CD4(+)CD56(+)CD123(+)lineage(-)MPO(-), although many patients will present with variable expression of CD4, CD56, or alternate plasmacytoid markers, which compounds the difficulty in differentiating BPDCN from other myeloid or lymphoid malignancies...

BACKGROUND: While much cancer research focuses on tumours and their microenvironment, malignancies cause widespread physiologic changes. Cancer and treatment-related sarcopenia, measured with quantitative imaging or as a decrease in overall body mass, are indicative of poor prognosis in elderly diffuse large B-cell lymphoma (DLBCL) patients, skeletal muscle radiodensity (SMD) may be a better prognostic marker. SMD, a measure of muscle radiation attenuation on CT imaging, is more prognostic than sarcopenia or International Prognostic Index (IPI) scores in follicular lymphoma and multiple solid organ malignancies...

Transformed lymphoma is a complex syndrome that encompasses an array of different underlying low-grade lymphoproliferative conditions transforming into more aggressive disease as manifest by morphologic, clinical, and genetic features. Over the last decade, advances in chemoimmunotherapy have led to new options. Knowledge surrounding the genetic changes driving the process of transformation is leading to novel targeted therapies. This article focuses on the transformation of chronic lymphocytic leukemia and follicular lymphoma into diffuse large B-cell lymphoma...
