Vedolizumab is a humanized anti-α4β7 integrin monoclonal antibody that selectively blocks trafficking of memory T cells to inflamed gut tissue by inhibiting the α4β7-mucosal addressin cell adhesion molecule-1 (MAdCAM-1) interaction. Approved for treating patients with moderately to severely active ulcerative colitis (UC) or Crohn's disease (CD), vedolizumab is administered as a 300 mg intravenous infusion. Vedolizumab undergoes a rapid, saturable, non-linear, target-mediated elimination process at low concentrations and a slower, linear, non-specific elimination process at higher concentrations...

A host of new therapies are now available for treating patients with chronic lymphocytic leukemia (CLL) in both the upfront and relapsed or refractory settings. Although the optimal use of these agents is still being defined, established and emerging prognostic markers aid in the selection of appropriate treatment with the best chance of success. At the NCCN 22nd Annual Conference, Dr. Andrew Zelenetz discussed the role of the CLL-International Prognostic Index for risk stratification, reviewed optimal first-line therapy options, and then presented updated clinical trial data on the novel agents being used in the relapsed or refractory setting...

Progress in chronic lymphocytic leukemia (CLL) therapies has extended greatly the length and depth of remission, with the goal of treatment advancing towards a cure for some patients. Accordingly, clinical endpoints must evolve to capture these outcomes, and to provide faster access to novel therapies. Minimal residual disease (MRD) is an important endpoint representing more accurately the depth of remission than complete response (CR), and is highly prognostic of progression-free survival (PFS) and overall survival (OS)...

The management of AF represents a major challenge in patients with CLL, especially in elderly patients with multiple comorbidities who are representative of the majority of patients with CLL. This is especially complex in the case of ibrutinib. Many anticoagulants have potential for pharmacological interaction with ibrutinib, and ibrutinib itself has antiplatelet properties. Use of ibrutinib therapy in these patients mandates review and revision of the need for anticoagulation and best anticoagulant to use...

The aim of this study was to evaluate the incidence of a variety of infectious complications in patients with CLL regarding the duration of CLL and the type of treatment. We present the retrospective analysis of patients with CLL treated at our institution in years 2004-2016. We collected data about the type of infection, pathogenes, treatment and severity of infections surpassed in connection with administration treatment. In the study one hundred and ten patients were evaluated. The average age of patients was 61...

Subclonal heterogeneity and clonal selection influences disease progression in chronic lymphocytic leukemia (CLL). It is therefore important that therapeutic decisions are made based on an understanding of the CLL clonal architecture and its dynamics in individual patients. Identification of cytogenetic abnormalities by FISH remains the cornerstone of contemporary clinical practice and provides a simple means for prognostic stratification. Here, we demonstrate that multiplexed-FISH can enhance recognition of CLL subclonal repertoire and its dynamics during disease progression, both in patients and CLL patient-derived xenografts (PDX)...

In patients with chronic lymphocytic leukemia (CLL), persistence of disease after allogeneic stem cell transplantation (alloSCT) can result in poor outcomes. In an effort to improve these outcomes, patients with persistent CLL who were 90-100 days post alloSCT with no evidence of graft-versus-host-disease (GVHD) were randomized to receive lenalidomide or standard care (withdrawal of immunosuppression followed by donor lymphocyte infusion). Lenalidomide was initiated at 5 mg every other day and increased to 10 mg daily if tolerated in each patient...

Despite substantial recent advances, there is still an unmet need for better therapies in B-cell non Hodgkin lymphomas (B-NHL), especially in relapsed or refractory disease. Many novel targeted drugs have been developed based on a better molecular understanding of B-NHL. Areas covered: This article focuses on chronic lymphocytic leukemia (CLL) as a representative for indolent lymphomas and paradigmatic for the tremendous progress in treating B-NHL on the one hand and diffuse large B-cell lymphoma (DLBCL) as a representative for aggressive lymphomas and paradigmatic for many unsolved problems in lymphoma treatment on the other hand...

Venetoclax is a potent, selective inhibitor of BCL-2, a key regulator of the intrinsic pathway of apoptosis. In preclinical studies, venetoclax bound to BCL-2 with high affinity and rapidly induced apoptosis in chronic lymphocytic leukemia (CLL) cells. In early-phase clinical trials in CLL, venetoclax treatment led to tumor lysis syndrome in some patients with a large tumor burden, but this risk was subsequently mitigated by a revised study design that included lower initial dosing with intrapatient dose ramp-up and close tumor lysis syndrome monitoring and prophylaxis...

BACKGROUND Chronic lymphocytic leukemia (CLL) is the most common leukemia affecting older adults. As such, many of these patients suffer from co-existing disease states, and the provider must take these comorbidities into account when determining a treatment regimen. The widespread use of monoclonal antibodies (mAbs) has drastically changed the treatment landscape of multiple diseases, ranging from leukemia to autoimmune conditions such as rheumatoid arthritis. CASE REPORT We present the case of a patient who had progression of his CLL and rheumatoid symptoms on rituximab therapy, and was subsequently treated with the second-generation anti-CD20 antibody obinutuzumab...

Chronic lymphocytic leukemia (CLL) is the most common adult leukemia and it typically afflicts older adults, with a median age at diagnosis of 71. Traditional treatments for CLL have included chemotherapy, which can often be difficult for older patients to tolerate. Given the variability in fitness, cognition and comorbidities amongst older patients, a geriatric evaluation should be considered prior to commencement of cytotoxic therapy. More recently, novel oral agents are proving to be both safe and effective in this population, redefining the field of CLL therapy...

The recent development of small molecule inhibitors targeted at the B-cell receptor (BCR) pathway and the anti-apoptotic protein BCL-2 has revolutionized the care of patients with chronic lymphocytic leukemia (CLL). While durable responses to the BCR inhibitor ibrutinib have been observed in both previously untreated and relapsed/refractory CLL patients, residual disease is common in patients treated with single-agent ibrutinib. Interest remains high in therapeutic combinations that may lead to better quality remissions...

The BCL2 inhibitor venetoclax achieves responses in ~79% of patients with relapsed or refractory chronic lymphocytic leukemia/small lymphocytic lymphoma (RR-CLL/SLL), irrespective of risk factors associated with poor response to chemo-immunotherapy. A limitation of this targeted therapy is progressive disease (PD) in some patients. To define the risk factors for progression, the clinico-pathological features of PD and the outcomes for patients after venetoclax failure, we analyzed 67 heavily pre-treated patients on three early phase clinical trials...

Patients with relapsed or refractory (R/R) non-Hodgkin's lymphoma (NHL) have a poor prognosis and limited treatment options. We evaluated selinexor, an orally bioavailable, first-in-class inhibitor of the nuclear export protein XPO1, in this phase 1 trial to assess safety and determine a recommended phase 2 dose (RP2D). Seventy-nine patients with various NHL histologies, including diffuse large B cell lymphoma (DLBCL), Richter's transformation, mantle cell lymphoma (MCL), follicular lymphoma (FL) and chronic lymphocytic leukemia (CLL) were enrolled...

There is individual variation in the course of disease development and response to therapy of patients with chronic lymphocytic leukemia (CLL). Novel treatment options for CLL include a new generation of purine analogs, antibodies and inhibitors of specific cell signaling pathways, which typically induce apoptosis or necrosis. A prospective analysis of patient blood samples revealed that a combination of four tests allowed the most appropriate and effective type of treatment to be selected prior to drug administration, and for the analysis of leukemic cell sensitivity to anticancer drug(s) during disease development...

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 B-cell lymphoma 2 (BCL2) family of proteins comprise key regulators of apoptosis and are implicated in the pathogenesis of many malignancies, including lymphomas and leukaemias. Targeting of BCL2 proteins can be directly toxic to tumour cells or render them more sensitive to chemotherapy. Inhibition of the anti-apoptotic functions of BCL2 proteins using structure-based design to produce specific inhibitors of protein-protein interactions has been achieved for BCL2, MCL1 and BCL-XL (also termed BCL2L1), providing an armamentarium of new targeted therapies called BH3-mimetics...

Venous thromboembolism (VTE) has significant clinical implications in leukemia patients. However, the actual frequency of this complication remains unknown. We performed a systematic review and meta-analysis to better estimate the frequency of this complication and to assess the risk factors that contribute to its occurrence. We searched several databases, including PubMed, Embase, and Web of Science, and assessed study quality using the Newcastle-Ottawa scale. The pooled frequency of VTE in leukemia patients was calculated...

Massive genomic analyses have underscored the diversity of chronic lymphocytic leukaemia (CLL) between patients. Genetic heterogeneity of tumour clones within a patient may fuel tumour evolution. Several recurrently deregulated intra-cellular pathways are candidates for targeted therapies that are very promising and are dramatically changing clinical patients' perspectives. In this review we present an overview of the genetic and epigenetic features of CLL and their clinical and biological implications.

Patients with chronic lymphocytic leukemia (CLL) with 13q deletion as the sole cytogenetic abnormality usually have a favorable outcome, but the frequency of the 13q14 deletion and its impact on the outcome of other B-cell chronic lymphoproliferative disorders (BCLPDs) remain unclear. To further characterize this aberration, we investigated the prognostic significance of 13q deletion in 541 patients with BCLPDs. We performed fluorescence in situ hybridization (FISH) studies with 13q locus-specific LSI-D13S25 and LSI-RB1 probes...
