Primär kutane CD30(+) lymphoproliferative Erkrankungen zählen zu der zweit häufigsten Gruppe der kutanen T-Zell-Lymphome (CTCL) und umfassen die Krankheitsbilder der lymphomatoiden Papulose (LyP) und des primär kutanen anaplastischen großzelligen Lymphoms (cALCL). Beide Erkrankungen haben klinische, histopathologische und molekulare Gemeinsamkeiten und repräsentieren ein Spektrum von kutanen CD30(+) lymphoproliferativen Erkrankungen. Man kann LyP vom cALCL anhand des Zusammenspiels von klinischen und histopathologischen Befunden unterscheiden...

OBJECTIVE: According to lymphoma guidelines, gastric diffuse large B cell lymphoma (DLBCL) patients should undergo regular computed tomography (CT) and/or positron emission tomography (PET) examinations to assess treatment response. Endoscopic examinations are not indicated in the guidelines. The aim of this study was to investigate the utility of endoscopic examinations during and after treatment for DLBCL. METHODS: We reviewed the patients diagnosed with gastric DLBCL at Seoul St...

BACKGROUND: Short intensive chemotherapy is the standard of care for adult patients with Burkitt's leukaemia or lymphoma. Findings from single-arm studies suggest that addition of rituximab to these regimens could improve patient outcomes. Our objective was to test this possibility in a randomised trial. METHODS: In this randomised, controlled, open-label, phase 3 trial, we recruited patients older than 18 years with untreated HIV-negative Burkitt's lymphoma (including Burkitt's leukaemia) from 45 haematological centres in France...

The Competence Network Malignant Lymphomas (KML), founded in 1999 at the initiative of the Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF), brings together interdisciplinary medical and scientific expertise in research on malignant lymphomas. The network helps to release synergies in evidence-based clinical research and contributes to the accelerated transfer of advances in knowledge gained from therapeutic studies for the health care of lymphoma patients. During the regular BMBF funding period (1999-2009) individual sub-projects were hived off, such as the Cochrane Haematological Malignancies Group (CHMG) or the Scientific Institute of Haematologists and Oncologists in Private Practice (WINHO GmbH)...

Das Sézary-Syndrom, die leukämische Variante des kutanen T-Zell-Lymphoms, stellt immer noch eine Erkrankung mit vielen ungelösten Fragen sowie einer sehr ungünstigen Prognose dar. In jüngeren Forschungsarbeiten wurde jedoch eine Vielzahl an fehlregulierten molekularen Signalwegen identifiziert, die zur malignen Transformation und Therapieresistenz von Sézary-Zellen (SC) beitragen. Im Hinblick auf die T-Zell-Entwicklung repräsentieren SC entweder naive T-Zellen, T-Effektor-Gedächtniszellen oder zentrale T-Gedächtniszellen...

BACKGROUND: Cardiovascular disease after treatment is an important concern in cancer survivors. However, knowledge of cardiotoxicity is limited by the retrospective nature of data, which often does not contain details of treatment exposure. To facilitate individual risk counselling of patients, we aimed to quantify the effect of anthracyclines, vinca-alkaloids, and radiotherapy on the risk of cardiovascular disease in patients treated for Hodgkin's lymphoma. METHODS: In 2009-10, a Life Situation Questionnaire (LSQ) was distributed to patients by mail to assess late-onset effects of Hodgkin's lymphoma treatment in patients who were included in nine successive European Organisation for Research and Treatment of Cancer (EORTC) and the Groupe d'Etude des Lymphomes de l'Adulte (GELA, now renamed LYSA) randomised trials between 1964 and 2004...

BACKGROUND: Fludarabine-based chemoimmunotherapy with rituximab is frequently used in patients with indolent and mantle-cell lymphomas who relapse after alkylating chemotherapy. We aimed to compare the efficacy and safety of rituximab with bendamustine or fludarabine in patients with relapsed, indolent, non-Hodgkin lymphoma and mantle-cell lymphoma. METHODS: For this randomised, non-inferiority, open-label, phase 3 trial, we recruited patients from 55 centres in Germany, who were subsequently randomised centrally according to prespecified randomisation lists with permuted blocks of randomly variable block size to rituximab (375 mg/m(2), day 1) plus either bendamustine (90 mg/m(2), days 1 and 2) or fludarabine (25 mg/m(2), days 1-3) every 28 days for a maximum of six 28-day cycles...

BACKGROUND: In gastric MALT lymphomas persisting after Helicobacter pylori (H. pylori) eradication, a treatment by moderate-dose radiotherapy (RT) has been proposed but its efficacy has not been confirmed in large prospective series with long term endoscopic follow-up. METHOD: Patients with localised gastric MALT lymphoma persisting after H. pylori eradication were offered moderate-dose RT (30Gy, 2Gy/fraction) and followed with annual endoscopies. All biopsies before and after RT were reviewed by a committee of pathologists...

The purpose of our study is to determine the outcome of patients with systemic non-Hodgkin lymphoma presenting with neurologic localization at diagnosis, as well as the impact of consolidation in terms of high-dose therapy followed by autologous stem cell transplantation. Newly diagnosed non-Hodgkin lymphoma patients with concomitant systemic and neurological involvement at diagnosis were included in this study. Sixty patients (37 males; 25 females) were included. Median age was 61 years (23-85 years). Histological subtype was mainly diffuse large B-cell lymphoma (n = 54; 90%)...

Patient-specific primers from 10 children/adolescents with Burkitt leukaemia (BL) ± central nervous system disease who were treated with French-British-American/Lymphome Malins de Burkitt 96 C1 plus rituximab were developed from diagnostic blood/bone marrow. Minimal residual disease (MRD) was assessed by real-time polymerase chain reaction at the end of induction (EOI) and consolidation (EOC). Seventy per cent (7/10) and 71% (5/7) were MRD-positive at EOI and EOC, respectively, with no disease recurrences...

Diffuse large B cell lymphoma (DLBCL) of the stomach is a heterogenous disease. There are tumors without histological evidence of mucosa-associated lymphoid tissue (MALT) lymphoma, which are classified as pure or de novo DLBCL and those with evidence of MALT, which are classified as DLBCL (MALT). The association between Helicobacter pylori (H. pylori) and gastric MALT lymphoma and remission with H. pylori eradication was shown in the 1990s. In recent years, scientists from Taiwan and others have shown that high-grade gastric lymphomas may be dependent on H...

HINTERGRUND: Nach Ausschöpfung von klassischen Behandlungsverfahren wie Chemo- und Strahlentherapie existieren bei ausgedehnten Hauttumoren oder Hautmetastasen nur wenige Optionen einer lokalen Tumorkontrolle. In diesen Fällen kann die Elektrochemotherapie als Therapiealternative in Erwägung gezogen werden. PATIENTEN UND METHODIK: Im Rahmen einer retrospektiven Studie wurden klinische Charakteristika, Ansprechen und Bedingungen des Ansprechens sowie Nebenwirkungen von 56 Patienten untersucht, die an sechs deutschen Hautkliniken behandelt wurden...

To describe relapsed B-cell lymphoma or leukemia in children/adolescents treated with a "Lymphomes Malins B" regimen and their outcome and to identify prognostic factors for survival, we studied relapses in the LMB89, 96 and 2001 studies of the Société Française d'Oncologie Pédiatrique (Société Française des Cancers de l'Enfant). Therapeutic guidelines at relapse were to obtain a second complete remission and to consolidate the remission with high-dose chemotherapy followed by autologous stem-cell transplantation...

Children and adolescents with Burkitt Lymphoma (BL) and combined central nervous system (CNS) and bone marrow involvement still have a poor prognosis with chemotherapy alone. We therefore investigated in children and adolescents with bone marrow (≥25% blasts) and/or CNS-positive Burkitt lymphoma the chemoimmunotherapy combination of rituximab (375 mg/m(2) ) and the standard chemotherapy arm of our previously reported French-American-British (FAB) Lymphome Malins de Burkitt (LMB) 96 trial. Central pathological and cytogenetic characterization was also performed...

The homeostasis of insulin-like growth factor-1 (IGF-1) is essential for metabolism, development and survival. Insufficient IGF-1 is associated with poor recovery from wounds whereas excessive IGF-1 contributes to growth of tumours. We have shown that cyclic glycine-proline (cGP), a metabolite of IGF-1, can normalise IGF-1 function by showing its efficacy in improving the recovery from ischemic brain injury in rats and inhibiting the growth of lymphomic tumours in mice. Further investigation in cell culture suggested that cGP promoted the activity of IGF-1 when it was insufficient, but inhibited the activity of IGF-1 when it was excessive...

PURPOSE: Studies of diffuse large B-cell lymphoma (DLBCL) are typically evaluated by using a time-to-event approach with relapse, re-treatment, and death commonly used as the events. We evaluated the timing and type of events in newly diagnosed DLBCL and compared patient outcome with reference population data. PATIENTS AND METHODS: Patients with newly diagnosed DLBCL treated with immunochemotherapy were prospectively enrolled onto the University of Iowa/Mayo Clinic Specialized Program of Research Excellence Molecular Epidemiology Resource (MER) and the North Central Cancer Treatment Group NCCTG-N0489 clinical trial from 2002 to 2009...
