           alternatively combined with levamisole for severe aplastic anemia
    • Abstract: Hematopoietic stem cell transplantation (HSCT) and immunosuppressive therapy (IST) with antithymocyte globulin (ATG) and cyclosporine (CsA) have been widely accepted as the standard first-line treatments for severe aplastic anemia (SAA). However, most of the patients with SAA had a slim chance to access these strategies in developing countries. Here, we reported 10-year results in a cohort of 232 patients with SAA who received a novel IST of CsA, levamisole, and danazol (CsA&LMS-based regimen). The cumulative incidence of response was 52.1% at 6 months, 66.4% at 12 months, and 77.1% at 24 months. The 10-year overall survival (OS) and failure-free survival was 60.2% and 48.3%, respectively. Positive predictors of OS in multivariate analysis were higher pretreatment ANC, younger age, higher pretreatment absolute reticulocyte count (ARC), and response within 6 months. The probability of CsA&LMS discontinuation was 50.2% at 10 years. With a slow CsA&LMS taper, the actuarial risk for relapse was only 9.5%. The cumulative incidence of MDS/AML was 8.2% at 10 years. The long-term follow-up information demonstrated that the CsA&LMS regimen could be a promising strategy for patients with SAA in developing countries.

  • An eleven-year cohort of bloodstream infections in 552 febrile neutropenic
           patients: resistance profiles of Gram-negative bacteria as a predictor of
    • Abstract: Antimicrobial stewardship is of major importance in patients with febrile neutropenia (FN). In this study, we aimed to investigate the trends in resistance and the relationship with mortality rates in patients with FN. The single-center surveillance data of inpatients with FN and diagnosed as microbiologically confirmed bloodstream infections (BSIs) between 2006 and 2016 were reviewed retrospectively. A total of 950 episodes in 552 patients with BSIs were analyzed. Of whom, 55.9% were male, the median age was 43 years, and 35.6% had acute myeloid leukemia. In total, 1016 microorganisms were isolated from blood cultures. Gram-negatives accounted for 42.4% (n = 403) of the episodes. Among Gram-negatives, Enterobacteriaceae accounted for 346 (86%) (E. coli, n = 197; 34% extended-spectrum β-lactamases (ESBL) producers, and Klebsiella spp., n = 120; 48.3% ESBL producers). Also, 24 (20.0%) of Klebsiella spp. had carbapenemase activity. There were 6 (5.0%) colistin-resistant Klebsiella spp. Thirteen (26.5%) of Pseudomonas spp. and 17 (60.7%) of Acinetobacter spp. had carbapenemase activity. There were 2 (5.6%) colistin-resistant Acinetobacter spp. The 30-day mortality rates were 12.0%, 21.5%, 34.6%, and 29.0% in BSIs due to Gram-positive, Gram-negative bacterial, fungal, and polymicrobial etiology respectively (p = 0.001). BSIs with ESBL-producing (p = 0.001) isolates, carbapenem (p < 0.001), and colistin-resistant isolates (p < 0.001) were associated with increased mortality risk. The tremendous rise in resistance rates among Gram-negatives is dreadfully related to increasing mortality and leads to sharp shifts toward extreme restrictions of unnecessary antibiotic uses. Antimicrobial stewardship in patients with FN requires vigilance and tailoring of treatment upon local surveillance data.

  • Clinical characteristics and treatment outcome of type I cryoglobulinemia
           in Chinese patients: a single-center study of 45 patients
    • Abstract: To explore the clinical characteristics and outcomes in Chinese patients with type I cryoglobulinemia (CG), we retrospectively analyzed the clinical data, management, and outcomes of 45 patients diagnosed with type I CG in our hospital from January 2015 to March 2019. In our study, all type I CGs were secondary to hematologic diseases, and monoclonal gammopathy of unknown significance was the most common primary disease, accounting for 48.9% (n = 22). Additionally, B cell non-Hodgkin lymphoma, Waldenström’s macroglobulinemia, and multiple myeloma accounted for 24.4% (n = 11), 20.0% (n = 9), and 6.7% (n = 3), respectively. In patients with type I CG, skin damage was the most common symptom, presenting in 57.8% of the patients, followed by peripheral neuropathy (22.2%) and renal involvement (15.6%). Treatment was initiated in 29 patients (64.4%), and the most common choice was a rituximab-based regimen in 13 patients (44.8%), followed by bortezomib-based regimen in 11 patients (37.9%). Clinical symptoms were significantly improved after treatment, and the clinical remission rate was 86.2%, including 34.5% of complete clinical remission, while the laboratory response rate was 88.9%, including 33.3% of complete response and 55.6% of partial response. The expected 1-year overall survival was 97.8%. In conclusion, for patients with multisystemic involvement, such as skin damage, kidney damage, or peripheral neuropathy, the diagnosis of type I CG should be considered, and the underlying disease needs to be explored. Symptoms and primary diseases should be taken into consideration before choosing initial management.

  • Risk factors and associations with clinical outcomes of cytomegalovirus
           reactivation after haploidentical versus matched-sibling unmanipulated
           PBSCT in patients with hematologic malignancies
    • Abstract: In allogeneic hematopoietic stem cell transplantation recipients, cytomegalovirus (CMV) infection can cause overt CMV-associated disease, which is a main cause of transplantation-associated mortality. CMV infection correlates closely with donor’s type. We therefore examined whether risk factors of CMV reactivation and clinical endpoints in patients with hematologic malignancies after allogeneic peripheral blood stem cell transplantation (PBSCT) differed between using matched-sibling donors (MSD-SCT) and haploidentical donors (HID-SCT). In this retrospective cohort study, we enrolled in 200 consecutive patients received an unmanipulated G-CSF-mobilized allogeneic PBSCT. Ninety (45%) patients received MSD-SCT and 110 (55%) received HID-SCT. Quantitative PCR was used for monitoring of CMV reactivation after transplantation. One-year cumulative incidence of CMV DNAemia was 55.0%, ranging from 23.5% in MSD-SCT group to 81.0% in HID-SCT group (p < 0.001). Although univariate analyses showed that non-myeloid malignancies, disease in complete remission status at transplantation, pretreatment with antithymocyte globulin, HLA-haploidentical donors, male donors, previous Epstein-Barr virus DNAemia, and absolute lymphocyte count on day 30 < 0.6 × 109/L were respectively associated with CMV reactivation after transplantation in total cohort of recipients (all p < 0.05), haploidentical donors were found to be the only independent predictor in multivariate analyses (Hazard ratio = 6.4, p < 0.001). Furthermore, univariate analyses revealed that non-myeloid malignancies and previous Epstein-Barr virus DNAemia were respectively associated with CMV reactivation in MSD-SCT recipients, and female was associated with CMV reactivation in HID-SCT recipients (all p < 0.05). In HID-SCT recipients, but not MSD-SCT recipients, previous CMV DNAemia was associated with a lower cumulative incidence of acute graft-versus-host disease (49.2% vs. 72.6%, p < 0.001). CMV DNAemia did not play a role in the relapse rate, but it was strongly associated with an increased risk of non-relapse mortality either in total cohort of recipients (30.5% vs. 13.7%; p = 0.003) or in the HID-SCT subgroup (36.0% vs. 16.7%; p = 0.030). Relapse-free survival and overall survival in total cohort of recipients with CMV DNAemia were both inferior to those without CMV DNAemia (45.3% vs. 57.6% and 54.8% vs. 65.8%, respectively; both p < 0.05). However, in subgroup analysis according to donor’s type, neither relapse-free survival nor overall survival was impacted by CMV status (both p > 0.05). This study addressed differences in incidence, risk factors, and associations with clinical outcomes of CMV reactivation after haploidentical versus matched-sibling PBSCT.

  • Outcomes of allogeneic haematopoietic stem cell transplantation for
           patients with severe aplastic anaemia using the porcine antilymphocyte
           globulin-containing conditioning regimen
    • Abstract: Antithymocyte globulin (ATG) is widely used for allogeneic haematopoietic stem cell transplantation (allo-HSCT) in severe aplastic anaemia (SAA). Only rabbit-ATG (r-ATG) and porcine-antilymphocyte globulin (p-ALG) are available in China, but the p-ALG-containing conditioning regimen for allo-HSCT in SAA has seldom been reported. In this study, we retrospectively evaluated the outcomes of 41 SAA patients receiving allo-HSCT with a p-ALG-containing conditioning regimen in our transplantation centre. All patients engrafted, and no death during conditioning was observed. The actuarial 3-year overall survival (OS) rates were 95.1 ± 3.4%. The actuarial 3-year disease-free survival (DFS) rates were 85.0 ± 5.7%. Acute graft-versus-host disease (aGVHD) predicted inferior OS (p < 0.05). The interval from diagnosis to transplantation for more than 100 days predicted an inferior DFS rate (p < 0.05) and a higher graft rejection/poor graft function (GR/PGF) rate (p < 0.01). In conclusion, the p-ALG-containing regimen showed satisfactory effects and safety in allo-HSCT for SAA patients. P-ALG could be a potential alternative preparation for r-ATG in SAA allo-HSCT.

  • Safety and efficacy of temsirolimus in combination with three different
           immuno-chemotherapy regimens in relapse and refractory mantle cell
           lymphoma, final results of the T 3 phase IB trial of the LYSA
    • Abstract: Mantle cell lymphoma has a dismal prognosis at relapse or in the refractory setting. Among therapies, mTor pathway targeting by temsirolimus has been the first strategy approved for relapse in Europe. While its efficacy in monotherapy has long been demonstrated, its use remains limited. In the T3 phase Ib clinical trial, we investigated the recommended dose of temsirolimus in association with R-CHOP (R-CHOP-T), or high-dose cytarabine plus rituximab (R-DHA-T), or fludarabine, cyclophosphamide plus rituximab (R-FC-T). From November 11, 2011 to February 26, 2015, forty-one patients were enrolled. Patients presented with high MIPI (47.5%) at relapse and a median number of treatments of 1 (1–3). Patients were treated by R-CHOP-T (n = 10), R-FC-T (n = 14), or R-DHA-T (n = 17) according to the choice of local investigators. The maximum tolerated dose (MTD) was 15 mg in the R-CHOP-T arm and has not been determined in other treatment arms because of toxicities. All patients experienced ≥ Grade 3 adverse events, mainly thrombocytopenia (76%). Twenty-six patients discontinued prematurely the treatment, mostly for toxicity (n = 12) and progression of the disease (n = 8). Of note, 6 patients of the R-DHA-T arm reached complete remission (35%). Temsirolimus with immuno-chemotherapy is associated with a high rate of toxicities. Determination of MTD could only be achieved for R-CHOP-T arm. Associations between temsirolimus and other targeted therapies may be warranted for R/R MCL patients.

  • Bone turnover markers as an aid to monitor osteoporosis following
           allogeneic hematopoietic stem cell transplantation
    • Abstract: Bone turnover markers (BTMs) are useful parameters for assessing fracture risk and unlike bone mineral density (BMD), can be measured at any institution. However, BTM values have not been established in patients post-allogeneic hematopoietic stem cell transplantation (allo-HSCT). We investigated the practicality of BTMs in patients who underwent allo-HSCT by measuring levels of the serum bone resorption marker, tartrate-resistant acid phosphatase-5b (TRACP-5b), and the bone formation marker, bone-specific alkaline phosphatase (BAP), together with BMD, 1 month before and 6 months after allo-HSCT. Patients were classified into either the alendronate group (n = 14) if alendronate treatment (35 mg orally per week) was administered before allo-HSCT or within 1 month after allo-HSCT, or the control group (n = 16), in which patients did not receive alendronate treatment. Despite the high frequency of corticosteroids users in the alendronate group (71.4 vs. 18.9%; p < 0.01), the mean percentage changes in BMD at the lumbar spine (− 2.9 vs. − 3.1%; p = 0.44) and femoral neck (− 3.2 vs. − 4.1%; p = 1.00), TRACP-5b levels (− 4.8 vs. 9.9%; p = 0.45), and BAP levels (6.9 vs. 1.0%; p = 0.85) during 6 months did not differ significantly between the alendronate and control groups. Additionally, the percentage changes in BMD at the lumbar spine were negatively associated with the TRACP-5b levels 6 months after allo-HSCT (p = 0.03, r = 0.40). Our results indicate the possible effectiveness of alendronate treatment in allo-HSCT patients. BTM levels could be useful to monitor the BMD changes.

  • Impact of central nervous system (CNS) prophylaxis on the incidence of CNS
           relapse in patients with high-risk diffuse large B cell/follicular grade
           3B lymphoma
    • Abstract: Although overall survival in diffuse large B cell lymphomas (DLBCL) has improved, central nervous system (CNS) relapse is still a fatal complication of DLBCL. For this reason, CNS prophylaxis is recommended for patients at high risk of CNS disease. However, no consensus exists on definition of high-risk patient and optimal CNS prophylaxis. Systemic high-dose methotrexate in combination with R-CHOP has been suggested as a potential prophylactic method, since methotrexate penetrates the blood-brain barrier and achieves high concentration in the CNS. In this retrospective analysis, we report treatment outcome of 95 high-risk DLBCL/FL grade 3B patients treated with R-CHOP or its derivatives with (N = 57) or without (N = 38) CNS prophylaxis. At a median follow-up time (51 months), CNS relapses were detected in twelve patients (12.6%). Ten out of twelve (83%) of CNS events were confined to CNS system only. Median overall survival after CNS relapse was 9 months. Five-year isolated CNS relapse rates were 5% in the prophylaxis group and 26% in the group without prophylaxis. These findings suggest that high-dose methotrexate-containing prophylaxis decreases the risk of CNS failure.

  • Gene mutation profile in patients with acquired pure red cell aplasia
    • Abstract: Acquired pure red cell aplasia (PRCA) is a disorder characterized by normocytic anemia associated with reticulocytopenia and an absence of erythroblasts. The gene mutation profile in acquired PRCA is not defined yet. In this study, we aimed to identify the gene mutation spectrum of patients with acquired PRCA and the correlation between gene mutations and response to immunosuppressive therapy (IST). Thirty newly diagnosed acquired PRCA patients were enrolled in this study, and then whole-exome sequencing were performed among these patients and a panel with 93 candidate genes which associated with other bone marrow failure for the following analysis. Subsequently patients were treated with IST for at least 2 years. When treated with IST, there were thirteen complete response, ten partial response (ORR 76.7%), and seven no response at a medium of 8 (6–10) months. Totally twenty-three mutations in fifteen genes were detected in sixteen patients (53%). The mutated genes were associated with transcription, signal transduction, and epigenetic regulation pathways. The most frequent transitions in the point mutations were C > T. Age, gender, hemoglobin level at diagnosis, and gene mutation or not did not influence the response to IST. However, although patients with BCOR or BCORL1 mutations had a similar response to IST compared with those without mutation (P = 0.235), they had a better response than those with other gene mutations (P = 0.0193). In conclusion, patients with acquired PRCA may have clonal gene mutations. The patients with BCOR and BCORL1 mutations may suggest a better response to IST compared with those with other mutations.

  • Sequential allogeneic hematopoietic stem cell transplantation for active
           refractory/relapsed myeloid malignancies: results of a reduced-intensity
           conditioning preceded by clofarabine and cytosine arabinoside, a
           retrospective study on behalf of the SFGM-TC
    • Abstract: Allogeneic stem cell transplantation (allo-SCT) represents the most beneficial treatment for patients with active relapsed/refractory (R/R) hematologic malignancies. Recently, sequential regimens combining debulking chemotherapy followed by reduced-intensity conditioning (RIC) have shown encouraging results for these patients. In this retrospective study, we report the extended results of a sequential regimen of clofarabine, cytosine arabinoside, and RIC in 131 adults with active R/R myeloid disease at transplant. Conditioning consisted of clofarabine (30 mg/m2/day) and cytosine arabinoside (1 g/m2/day) for 5 days, followed, after a rest of 3 days, by an RIC combining cyclophosphamide (60 mg/kg) for 1 day, iv busulfan (3.2 mg/kg/day) for 2 days, and anti-thymocyte globulin (2.5 mg/kg/day) for 2 days. Between 2007 and 2016, 131 patients (males n = 75, median age: 52.6 years) were identified from the SFGM-TC registry. There were 111 acute myeloid leukemia (AML) patients and 20 cases with myelodysplastic or myeloproliferative syndrome. Status at transplant was known for all but 4 patients and was primary refractory (n = 81) and 1st or 2nd relapse (n = 46). All patients received allo-SCT from a matched donor (sibling n = 64, unrelated n = 67). Engraftment was observed in 105/122 (86%) evaluable cases and 63% of the patients achieved complete remission (CR) after transplant. The 1-year overall survival, disease-free survival, relapse incidence, non-relapse mortality, and graft-versus-host disease-free/relapse-free survival were 39.2%, 28.1%, 41.0%, 30.8%, and 22.2%, respectively. This study confirms that this sequential clofarabine-based regimen provides a high CR rate in this critical population, although relapse remains a matter of concern.

  • COVID-19-driven endothelial damage: complement, HIF-1, and ABL2 are
           potential pathways of damage and targets for cure
    • Abstract: COVID-19 pandemia is a major health emergency causing hundreds of deaths worldwide. The high reported morbidity has been related to hypoxia and inflammation leading to endothelial dysfunction and aberrant coagulation in small and large vessels. This review addresses some of the pathways leading to endothelial derangement, such as complement, HIF-1α, and ABL tyrosine kinases. This review also highlights potential targets for prevention and therapy of COVID-19-related organ damage and discusses the role of marketed drugs, such as eculizumab and imatinib, as suitable candidates for clinical trials.

  • Statin use and the risk of multiple myeloma: a PRISMA-compliant
    • Abstract: Previous studies exploring associations between statin use and risk of multiple myeloma (MM) showed inconsistent results. We searched for articles published in English in databases (PubMed, Web of Science, EMBASE, Medline, and Google Scholar) before October 2019. The multivariate odds ratio (OR)/relative risk (RR) and 95% confidence intervals (CI) were computed to explore associations between statin use and risk of MM. The study indicated that statin users showed significantly lower risks of MM with a random effects model (OR/RR = 0.77, 95% CI 0.63 to 0.95, I2 = 63.1%, p for Q test = 0.001). Subgroup analyses showed that statin users showed significantly lower risks of MM in Caucasian populations with a fixed effects model (OR/RR = 0.72, 95% CI 0.59 to 0.88, I2 = 43.5%, p for Q test = 0.060), whereas no significant association was shown between statin use and risks of MM in Asian populations with a random effects model. Additionally, Subgroup analyses showed that statin users showed significantly lower risks of MM in cohort studies with a fixed effects model (RR = 0.83, 95% CI 0.74 to 0.93, I2 = 0.0%, p for Q test = 0.429), whereas no significant association was shown between statin use and risks of MM in case-control studies with a random effects model. In conclusion, the present study indicated that statin use might be a protective factor for MM incidence. However, the relationship between statin use and MM risk requires repeated and large prospective studies to be verified.

  • Risk and impact of invasive fungal infections in patients with multiple
    • Abstract: Infection is associated with great morbidity and mortality in patients with multiple myeloma (MM), but evidence for invasive fungal infections (IFIs) is lacking. We aimed to investigate risk factors for IFI in MM patients and to determine its impact on patients’ survival. We retrospectively analyzed MM patients at Taipei Veterans General Hospital in Taiwan between January 2002 and October 2018. MM was diagnosed according to the International Myeloma Working Group criteria. IFI was defined according to the European Organization for Research and Treatment of Cancer/Mycoses Study Group criteria. All risk factors of IFI in MM patients were estimated using Cox regression models in the univariate and multivariate analyses. Of the 623 patients recruited, 22 (3.5%) were diagnosed with proven or probable IFI. Light chain disease (adjusted hazard ratio [HR] 6.74, 95% confidence interval [CI] 2.10–21.66), hemoglobin less than 8 g/dl (adjusted HR 3.34, 95% CI 1.32–8.42), serum albumin < 3.5 g/dl (adjusted HR 3.24, 95% CI 1.09–9.68), and having received allogeneic stem cell transplantation (allo-SCT) (adjusted HR 5.98, 95% CI 1.62–22.03) were significantly associated with IFI in the multivariate analysis. Contracting IFI was in turn associated with early mortality (adjusted HR 11.60, 95% CI 1.26–106.74). Light chain disease, anemia, hypoalbuminemia, and receiving allo-SCT were independent predictors of IFI in MM patients. The early mortality risk is much higher in those encountering IFI. Physicians must be aware of the rare but potentially lethal infections.

  • Adverse event management in the TOURMALINE-MM3 study of post-transplant
           ixazomib maintenance in multiple myeloma
    • Abstract: The phase 3, double-blind, placebo-controlled TOURMALINE-MM3 study (NCT02181413) demonstrated improved progression-free survival with ixazomib maintenance versus placebo post autologous stem cell transplant (ASCT) in multiple myeloma patients. We report additional safety data from TOURMALINE-MM3 to inform adverse event (AE) management recommendations. Patients were randomized 3:2 to receive ixazomib (n = 395) or placebo (n = 261) on days 1, 8, and 15 of 28-day cycles for ~ 2 years or until progressive disease/toxicity. The initial 3-mg ixazomib dose was escalated to 4 mg in cycle 5, if tolerated in cycles 1–4. Safety was a secondary endpoint assessed in all treated patients; AEs were graded using Common Terminology Criteria for AEs v4.03. The rate of grade ≥ 3 AEs was higher in the ixazomib arm (19%) than in the placebo arm (5%), but the rate of discontinuation due to AEs was similar (7% vs. 5%). For AEs of clinical interest, rates were higher with ixazomib versus placebo: nausea 39% versus 15%, vomiting 27% versus 11%, diarrhea 35% versus 24%, thrombocytopenia 13% versus 3%, and peripheral neuropathy 19% versus 15%. However, the majority of events were low-grade, manageable with supportive therapy or dose reduction, and reversible, and did not result in discontinuation. There was no evidence of cumulative, long-term, or late-onset toxicity with ixazomib maintenance. Ixazomib is an efficacious and tolerable option for post-ASCT maintenance. AEs associated with ixazomib maintenance can be managed in the context of routine post-ASCT supportive care due to the limited additional toxicity. NCT02181413
