  • Primary myelofibrosis and its targeted therapy
    • Authors: Lindsey Shantzer; Kristin Berger; Jeffrey J. Pu
      Pages: 531 - 535
      Abstract: Primary myelofibrosis is a unique entity among BCR-ABL-negative myeloproliferative diseases, manifesting as bone marrow fibrosis and pancytopenia. Considerable evidence indicates that genetic and epigenetic abnormalities can result in defective clonal hematopoietic stem cell proliferation in addition to bone marrow microenvironment alteration. The “bad seeds in bad soil” theory illustrates the orchestrating efforts of hematopoietic stem cells, stromal cells, and their surrounding signaling molecules in myelofibrosis progression and malignancy transformation, though the exact mechanism of myelofibrosis is still not clear. This study reviews current concepts and questions regarding the pathogenesis of primary myelofibrosis and discusses the emerging targeted therapy aimed at restoring normal bone marrow environment and halting bone marrow fibrotic deterioration.

  • Evaluating the impact of genetic and epigenetic aberrations on survival
           and response in acute myeloid leukemia patients receiving epigenetic

      Abstract: Treatment with hypomethylating agents such as decitabine, which results in overall response rates of up to 50%, has become standard of care in older patients with acute myeloid leukemia (AML) who are not candidates for intensive chemotherapy. However, there still exists a lack of prognostic and predictive molecular biomarkers that enable selection of patients who are likely to benefit from epigenetic therapy. Here, we investigated distinct genetic (FLT3-ITD, NPM1, DNMT3A) and epigenetic (estrogen receptor alpha (ERα), C/EBPα, and OLIG2) aberrations in 87 AML patients from the recently published phase II decitabine trial (AML00331) to identify potential biomarkers for patients receiving hypomethylating therapy. While FLT3-ITD and NPM1 mutational status were not associated with survival or response to therapy, patients harboring DNMT3A R882 mutations showed a non-significant association towards shorter overall survival (hazard ratio (HR) 2.15, 95% confidence interval (CI) 0.91–5.12, p = 0.08). Promoter DNA methylation analyses using pyrosequencing also revealed a non-significant association towards shorter overall survival of patients with higher levels of methylation of ERα (HR 1.50, CI 0.97–2.32, p = 0.07) and OLIG2 CpG4 (HR 1.52, CI 0.96–2.41, p = 0.08), while DNA methylation of C/EBPα showed no association with outcome. Importantly, in multivariate analyses adjusted for clinical baseline parameters, the impact of ERα and OLIG2 CpG4 methylation was conserved (HR 1.76, CI 1.01–3.06, p = 0.05 and HR 1.67, CI 0.91–3.08, p = 0.10, respectively). In contrast, none of the investigated genetic and epigenetic markers was associated with response to treatment. Additional to the previously reported adverse prognostic clinical parameters such as patients’ age, reduced performance status, and elevated lactate dehydrogenase levels, DNMT3A R882 mutation status, as well as ERα and OLIG2 CpG4 DNA methylation status, may prove to be molecular markers in older AML patients prior to hypomethylating therapy.

      Abstract: Although the outcome of patients with acute myeloid leukemia (AML) has improved by optimized chemotherapy regimens and bone marrow transplantation, leukemia relapse remains one of the most challenging problems during therapy. Sustained existence of AML blasts is a fundamental determinant for the development of leukemia and resistance to therapy. Recent evidences suggest that Meis1 is tightly associated with the self-renewal capacity of normal hematopoietic stem cells. Meis1 was also found to be essential for the development of mixed lineage leukemia (MLL)-rearranged leukemia. Whether Meis1 functions independently of MLL abnormality in the context of leukemia is unclear. Herein, we identified a distinct expression pattern of Meis1 in patients with newly diagnosed AML without MLL abnormality. High levels of Meis1 expression were found in 64 of 95 (67.4%) AML patients; whereas, 31 of 95 (32.6%) patients showed dramatically lower levels of Meis1, compared with the median level of Meis1 in healthy donors. The whole cohort and subgroup analyses further demonstrated that high Meis1 expression levels were associated with a resistance to conventional chemotherapy, compared with the group with low Meis1 levels (P = 0.014 and P = 0.029, respectively). In vitro knockdown experiments highlighted a role of Meis1 in regulating maintenance and survival of human AML cells. These results implicate that Meis1 functions as an important regulator during the progression of human AML and could be a prognostic factor independent of MLL abnormality.

      Abstract: Elderly and infirm patients with acute myeloid leukemia (AML) with either induction refractory or relapse disease may benefit from treatment with azacitidine. We retrospectively reviewed the data from five tertiary centers in Israel, treated between 2009 and 2015. Thirty-four patients (median age 74 years) were identified. Sixty-two percent of the patients had relapsed disease and 38% had refractory disease. Median time of follow-up was 12.1 months. Out of a total of 327 courses, incidence of infectious episodes was 6%. Eighteen percent experienced major bleeding. Thirty-two percent of the patients achieved morphologic complete remission, and 26% had stabilization of disease during at least three courses. At 12 and 18 months after the first course of azacitidine, 33 and 10% of the patients were progression-free, respectively. Incidences of overall survival at 12 and 24 months were 54.5 and 16%, respectively. Age <75 years was associated with better overall survival. Normal leukocyte count at the first dose of azacitidine and standard doses of azacitidine were both associated with a better progression-free and overall survival. We conclude that azacitidine is feasible in patients who have failed induction chemotherapy and may be associated with prolongation of survival. A prospective trial to validate these results is warranted.

      Abstract: The influence of chronic hepatitis B virus (HBV) infection on the efficacy of intensive immunosuppressive treatment (IST) of severe aplastic anaemia (SAA) patients remains unclear. Previous reports on this topic have been mostly case reports or have had a relatively short follow-up. Eight SAA patients carrying chronic HBV infection and 24 matched patients without HBV at a ratio of 1:3 were included in this retrospective analysis. The patients were treated with anti-thymocyte globulin (ATG) and cyclosporine A. Entecavir was or was not administered throughout the IST course to patients with positive or negative HBV-DNA results, respectively. No evident HBV reactivation developed. The overall response was 87.5% by 12 months, and the recurrence rate was 12.5%. There were no significant differences in overall response, overall survival and event-free survival between groups. Entecavir can effectively prevent reactivation of HBV in SAA patients with positive HBV-DNA who received intensive IST. Regular surveillance may be sufficient for HBV-DNA negative patients who should receive antiviral drugs immediately when their HBV-DNA status changes from negative to positive. The prognosis of SAA patients with chronic HBV infection after intensive IST treatment is not worse than those without HBV infection.

  • Serologic response to meningococcal vaccination in patients with
           paroxysmal nocturnal hemoglobinuria (PNH) chronically treated with the
           terminal complement inhibitor eculizumab
    • Authors: Ferras Alashkar; Colin Vance; Dörte Herich-Terhürne; Nicole Preising; Ulrich Dührsen; Alexander Röth
      Pages: 589 - 596
      Abstract: Eculizumab is indicated for the therapy of patients with symptomatic paroxysmal nocturnal hemoglobinuria (PNH). Due to inhibition of terminal complement cascade, patients on eculizumab are susceptible to Neisseria meningitidis infections. The two mainstays to reduce the risk of infection are vaccination and antibiotic prophylaxis. In this retrospective study, serologic response was analyzed after vaccination with a meningococcal vaccine in 23 PNH patients (median age 36 years; range 25 - 88 years; 15 males, 8 females) by measuring serum bactericidal assay (SBA) using rabbit complement (rSBA) titers against meningococcal serogroups A, C, W, and Y. Serologic protection was defined by an rSBA titer ≥1:8. Forty-three percent (10/23) were vaccinated more than once due to chronic eculizumab treatment. Overall serologic response for the meningococcal serogroups was A: 78% (18/23), C: 87% (20/23), W: 48% (11/23), and Y: 70% (16/23). No meningococcal infections have been observed. As immunological response to vaccines varies, the use of serologic response analyses is warranted. Re-vaccination with a tetravalent conjugate vaccine under eculizumab therapy every 3 years is essential or should be based on response rates. If meningococcal infection is suspected, standby therapy with ciprofloxacin and immediate medical evaluation are recommended. The novel vaccines covering serogroup B may even further reduce the risk for infection.

      Abstract: The presence of elevated numbers of circulating microparticles (MPs) has been hypothesized to be responsible for the occurrence of thromboembolic events (TEEs) in thalassemic patients. Our aim is to evaluate the presence and the thrombotic risk of circulating MPs in thalassemia patients and to determine the difference in MPs between β-thalassemia major (β-TM) and thalassemia intermedia (TI). The percentage of the annexin-labeled MPs, platelet-derived MPs (PMPs), erythrocyte-derived MPs (RMPs), and endothelial-derived MPs (EMPs) was measured by flow cytometry, in 87 thalassemia patients (39 β-TM and 48 TI). By multiple regression analysis, we then assessed the various independent risk factors for the occurrence of TEE. The thalassemic patients who experienced TEE had a significantly higher platelet count, higher percentage of annexin-labeled MPs, and higher percentage of PMPs (p value = 0.014, 0.003, and 0.014, respectively). There was no significant difference between β-TM and TI patients at the level of any of the studied MPs. The predictive risk factors for TEE in thalassemic patients were splenectomy, total and direct bilirubin, the RMPs, and the EMPs (OR = 10.07 (CI = 3.7–27.1), 4.3 (CI = 2.1–8.7), 1.4 (CI = 1.5–6.2), 1.6 (CI = 1.1–2.2), 3.0 (CI = 1.9–4.9), respectively). In conclusion, the elevated numbers of circulating MPs is a risk factor for the TEE in thalassemia patients.

      Abstract: Hematopoietic stem cell transplantation carries nutrition-related risks. Therefore, nutritional therapy needs to be initiated before transplantation even takes place. We assessed nutritional risk among patients who underwent allogeneic stem cell transplantation. We assessed nutrient supply (calorie supply and protein supply) by chart review. Assessments were made from the pretreatment phase of transplantation to after the end of parenteral nutrition in 51 patients who underwent allogeneic stem cell transplantation at Shizuoka Cancer Center between 2007 and 2012. We compared nutrition-related adverse events and parameters between two groups: those in whom % loss of body weight was ≥7.5 and those in whom % loss of body weight was <7.5. A correlation was observed between changes in weight and skeletal muscle mass (r = 0.89; P < 0.0001). A weak correlation was observed between % loss of body weight and nutrient supply of calories (r = 0.517; P = 0.0001). There were significant differences between the % loss of body weight ≥7.5 group and the % loss of body weight <7.5 group in the following variables: % loss of body weight, nutrient supply from calories and protein; orally ingested nutrient supply from calories and protein; start day of oral intake; and acute graft-versus-host disease. Orally ingested calories were negatively correlated with nutrition-related adverse events in both groups. Early and customized nutritional intervention may be optimal for all patients who undergo allogeneic stem cell transplantation to ameliorate body weight loss associated with nutrition-related adverse events.

      Abstract: Fludarabine combinations are very affective in follicular lymphoma (FL) with high rates of complete response and prolonged survival. However, late toxicities could be a concern. The aim of the present study was to analyze the long-term impact on survival, relapse and late toxicities of a trial of treatment with fludarabine, mitoxantrone and cyclophosphamide (FCM regimen) for untreated patients with advanced stage FL. One hundred and twenty patients enrolled in a phase 2 trial of treatment with FCM regimen between 2000 and 2003 were evaluated. After a median follow-up of 12 years, 52 patients eventually relapsed/progressed with 10 year progression-free survival (PFS) of 46 %. Ten patients showed histological transformation to aggressive lymphoma with a risk of transformation of 2 and 9 % at 5 and 10 years, respectively. Three patients developed therapy-related myelodysplastic syndrome/acute myeloid leukaemia (MDS/AML) and seven solid neoplasms with an overall risk of 3 and 8 % at 5 and 10 years, respectively. Twenty-six patients eventually died during the follow-up. Overall survival at 10 years was 83 %. In conclusion, FCM regimen allows excellent long-lasting response in previously untreated patients with FL. The incidence of late events including histological transformation and secondary neoplasia is low but not negligible.

  • Low-dose pembrolizumab for relapsed/refractory Hodgkin lymphoma: high
           efficacy with minimal toxicity
    • Authors: Thomas S. Y. Chan; Tsan-Hei Luk; June S. M. Lau; Pek-Lan Khong; Yok-Lam Kwong
      Pages: 647 - 651
      Abstract: Five patients with refractory/relapsed classical Hodgkin lymphoma (cHL), four having failed multiple lines of chemotherapy and brentuximab vedotin, were treated with low-dose pembrolizumab (median dose 100 mg, range: 100–200 mg, every 3 weeks). Complete response (CR) was achieved in four patients (80%), after a median cumulative dose of merely 495 (300–800) milligrams. Three CR patients have continued to receive pembrolizumab for a median of 16 (14–25) cycles, remaining in CR for a median of 18 (9–18) months. One CR patient underwent autologous hematopoietic stem cell transplantation and has remained in CR for 9 months. Partial response (PR) was achieved in one patient (20%), after a cumulative dose of 400 mg. The overall response rate was therefore 100% (CR: 80%; PR: 20%). Toxicity was virtually absent, with only grade 1 diarrhea and eczema each observed in one patient. Low-dose pembrolizumab was highly efficacious, achieving responses with minimal toxicity and at much lower costs.
