  • Clinical impact of galectin-3 in newly diagnosed t
           (15;17)(q22;q21)/PML-RARa acute promyelocytic leukemia treated with
           all-trans retinoic acid and arsenic trioxide-based regimens
    • Authors: Na Gao; Xue-Xia Wang; Jian-Rong Sun; Wen-Zheng Yu; Xi-Zhi Li
      Pages: 711 - 718
      Abstract: Abstract Increased galectin-3 expression has been currently showed to be associated with poor prognosis in some hematological malignancies, such as acute myeloid leukemia, diffuse large B cell lymphoma. However, little is known about the clinical significance of galectin-3 in patients with acute promyelocytic leukemia (APL). We investigated the concentration of serum galectin-3 and characterized the relationship between galectin-3 and outcome in patients with APL. Higher galectin-3 levels were detected in patients with APL compared with the healthy controls (p < 0.001). Higher galectin-3 levels were closely associated with older ages (p < 0.001), the medical history of psoriasis (p = 0.036), coagulopathy (p = 0.042), and CD34 expression (p = 0.004). Compared with patients with lower galectin-3 levels, those with higher galectin-3 levels had significant shorter overall survival (p = 0.028) and relapse-free survival (p = 0.001). Multivariate analysis showed that serum galectin-3 was an independent unfavorable factor for relapse-free survival in patients with APL treated with all-trans retinoic acid and arsenic trioxide-based frontline therapy. Clinical impact of galectin-3 should be further investigated in patients with APL.

      Abstract: Abstract The development of acute myeloid leukemia (AML) in patients with untreated chronic lymphocytic leukemia (CLL) is rare. We experienced a 65-year-old man who developed AML with aberrant CD7 expression and monoallelic CEBPA mutation during watchful waiting for CLL. He failed to achieve complete response (CR) by standard induction therapy for AML. We retrospectively reviewed 27 patients who developed AML with untreated CLL published between 1973 and 2016. The median age at diagnosis of AML was 68 years, and the median duration between the diagnoses of AML and CLL was 4.2 years. Diagnosis of AML and CLL was made simultaneously in 16 patients. The CR rate of AML was 42.9%, and the median survival was only 1.5 months after the diagnosis of AML. Patients who achieved CR tended to survive longer than those who did not. Our results demonstrated that the development of AML in patients with untreated CLL was associated with a poor response to chemotherapy and an extremely poor prognosis.

  • Clinicopathological differences exist between CALR- and JAK2 -mutated
           myeloproliferative neoplasms despite a similar molecular landscape: data
           from targeted next-generation sequencing in the diagnostic laboratory

      Abstract: Abstract Mutations in CALR have recently been detected in JAK2-negative myeloproliferative neoplasms (MPNs) and are key pathological drivers in these diseases. CALR-mutated MPNs are shown to have numerous clinicopathological differences to JAK2-mutated MPNs. The basis of these differences is poorly understood. It is unknown whether these differences result directly from any differences in intracellular signalling abnormalities induced by JAK2/CALR mutations or whether they relate to other phenomena such as a differing spectrum of genetic lesions between the two groups. We aimed to review the clinicopathological and molecular features of CALR- and JAK2-mutated MPNs from samples referred for diagnostic testing using a custom-designed targeted next-generation sequencing (NGS) panel. Eighty-nine CALR-mutated cases were compared with 70 JAK2-mutated cases. CALR-mutated MPNs showed higher platelet counts and a female predominance as compared to JAK2-mutated MPNs in our cohort. We have also observed differences between CALR mutation subtypes in terms of disease phenotype, mutational frequency and allelic burden. Type 1 CALR mutations were found to be more common in myelofibrosis, associated with a higher frequency and number of additional mutations and a higher mutant allelic burden as compared to type 2 CALR mutations. Despite these biological differences, our molecular characterisation suggests that CALR- and JAK2-mutated MPNs are broadly similar in terms of the quantity, frequency and spectrum of co-occurring mutations and therefore observed biological differences are likely to not be heavily influenced by the nature and quantity of co-mutated genes.

      Abstract: Abstract New automated hematology analyzers have led to the availability of novel hematological parameters, including the immature platelet fraction (IPF) and the immature reticulocyte fraction (IRF), both of potential interest in patients with myeloproliferative neoplasms (MPNs). We performed a prospective analysis of 217 patients with MPN, including 32 (15%) with essential thrombocythemia (ET), 43 (20%) with polycythemia vera (PV), and 142 (65%) with myelofibrosis (MF); the IPF and IRF were measured by the Sysmex XN analyzer. As compared to patients with ET, both a higher IPF and IRF were observed among patients with PV and MF. Factors associated with high IPF among patients with PV/ET were male sex, thrombocytopenia, and diagnosis of PV; among patients with MF, they were elevated peripheral blasts, low platelet count, JAK2 V617F mutation, and previous therapy. Factors associated with high IRF among patients with PV/ET were low hemoglobin, high reticulocyte count, and PV diagnosis; among patients with MF, they were peripheral blasts and elevated reticulocytes. The IPF and IRF represent novel parameters in patients with MPN with potential relevant clinical implications. Comparison with healthy subjects and those with secondary polycythemia is needed to confirm our preliminary findings.

  • Reallocating time to sleep, sedentary, and active behaviours in
           non-Hodgkin lymphoma survivors: associations with patient-reported
    • Authors: Jeff K. Vallance; Matthew P. Buman; Brigid M. Lynch; Terry Boyle
      Pages: 749 - 755
      Abstract: Abstract The purpose of this study was to examine potential effects of reallocating time between sleep, sedentary and active behaviours on fatigue symptoms and quality of life in a sample of non-Hodgkin lymphoma survivors. Non-Hodgkin lymphoma survivors identified from the Western Australian Cancer Registry (N = 149) (response rate = 36%; median age = 64 years) wore an Actigraph® GT3X+ accelerometer for 7 days and completed the Fatigue Scale, the Functional Assessment of Cancer Therapy-General and the Pittsburgh Sleep Quality Index. We used isotemporal substitution methods in linear regression models to examine the potential effects of reallocating time between sleep, sedentary and activity behaviours on fatigue and quality of life. Data collection was conducted in Western Australia in 2013. Significant differences were observed for fatigue symptoms when 30 min per day of bouted moderate-to-vigorous physical activity (10 min) was reallocated from 30 min per day of sleep (5.7 points, 95% CI = 1.8, 9.7), sedentary time bouts (20 min) (5.7 points, 95% CI = 1.6, 9.7), sedentary time non-bouts (5.1 points, 95% CI = 1.0, 9.3) or light intensity activity (5.5 points, 95% CI = 1.5, 9.5). Isotemporal substitution effects of reallocating sedentary time, sleep and light physical activity with bouted physical activity was significantly associated with fatigue, but not quality of life. Findings from the present study may aid in the development and delivery of health behaviour interventions that are more likely to influence the health outcome of interest.

  • sIL2R ratio as early marker for response in hairy cell leukemia and the
           prognostic relevance of IL28B genotype to interferon-α therapy
    • Authors: Stéphanie Jud; Jeroen S. Goede; Oliver Senn; Katharina Spanaus; Markus G. Manz; Rudolf Benz
      Pages: 757 - 763
      Abstract: Interferon-α (IFNα) was the first effective drug therapy for hairy cell leukemia (HCL). Nowadays, it is used as an alternative treatment in selected patients. Due to unlimited treatment time, monitoring and early prediction of response are important. Moreover, IFNα is used in the therapy of chronic hepatitis C, where a single nucleotide polymorphism of interleukin-28B gene (IL28B) correlates with therapy response. The role of this polymorphism in therapy response of IFNα-treated patients with HCL is unknown. Thirty-seven HCL patients treated between 1978 and 2014 were included in this study. Treatment strategy and response parameters (blood cell counts, soluble interleukin-2 receptor (sIL2R), and bone marrow examination) have been assessed. Relative decrease of sIL2R was correlated with outcome parameters. Response parameters of IFNα-treated patients were correlated with IL28B polymorphism. Twenty-one patients were analyzed for the correlation of sIL2R ratio and outcome. After 1 and 3 months of therapy (IFNα or cladribine (CDA)), the median sIL2R level showed a relative decrease of 79 and 91%. These decreases significantly correlate with time to complete remission (CR, p = 0.029 and p = 0.018). Correlation analyses of IL28B genotype with outcome parameters are not significant. Six patients (16%) were diagnosed with secondary malignancies, and one death was registered (median follow-up time 14 years). IFNα is a safe, effective, and well-tolerated long-term treatment in HCL. Relative decreases of sIL2R levels correlate with time to CR and are useful as early predictor for response. There is no significant correlation between IL28B polymorphism and treatment response to IFNα. Graphical abstract

  • Plasmacytoid dendritic cell proliferations and neoplasms involving the
           bone marrow
    • Authors: Alexandar Tzankov; Konnie Hebeda; Markus Kremer; Roos Leguit; Attilio Orazi; Jon van der Walt; Umberto Gianelli
      Pages: 765 - 777
      Abstract: Abstract Two distinct forms of neoplasms derived from plasmacytoid dendritic cells (PDC) exist: mature PDC proliferations associated with myeloid neoplasms and blastic PDC neoplasms (BPDCN). Ten cases of PDC proliferations and neoplasms in the bone marrow have been submitted to the bone marrow workshop held at the 18th EAHP meeting. Based on observations from the submitted cases, scattered PDC (≤1% of cells) and PDC aggregates (≤10 PDC/HPF) reflect the normal bone marrow composition, while in myelodysplastic syndromes (MDS), there is a propensity for larger/more PDC aggregates (1–5% and 35 PDC/HPF). A shared PTPN11 mutation between a mature PDC proliferation and an accompanying MDS provides evidence of clonal relationship in such instances and shows that PDC are a part of the malignant clone. CD123 and CD303 should be considered backbone markers to histopathologically establish the diagnosis of BPDCN, since they are detectable in almost all cases and properly well on biopsies subjected to different fixations. Expression of some T-cell markers (e.g., CD2 and CD7 but not CD3), B-cell markers (e.g., CD79a but not CD19 and CD20), and myeloid markers (e.g., CD33 and CD117 but not myeloperoxidase) can be observed in BPDCN. Genetical data of the summarized cases corroborate the important role of chromosomal losses in BPDCN. Together with five previously reported instances, one additional workshop case with MYC rearrangement proposes that translocations of MYC may be recurrent. The frequent nature of deleterious mutations of IKZF3 and deletions of IKZF1 suggests a role for the Ikaros family proteins in BPDCN.

  • Biosimilar epoetin alfa increases haemoglobin levels and brings cognitive
           and socio-relational benefits to elderly transfusion-dependent multiple
           myeloma patients: results from a pilot study
    • Authors: Roberto Castelli; Simona Sciara; Giorgio Lambertenghi Deliliers; Giuseppe Pantaleo
      Pages: 779 - 786
      Abstract: Abstract Anaemia is a complication reported in up to 70% of the multiple myeloma patients (MM), with remarkable clinical, cognitive and socio-relational consequences. Anaemia relates to the course of MM, normalizing in patients during remission and reappearing in relapsing/non-responding patients. In a pilot study with 31 patients with MM and transfusion-dependent anaemia, we evaluated the effects of Binocrit (biosimilar epoetin alfa) on transfusions, haemoglobin levels, mental status (mini-mental state evaluation) and the patients’ social-relational functioning and quality of life (QoL). Within a 12-week interval, patients received 40.000 U Binocrit once a week. Binocrit significantly decreased the incidence of transfusion, regardless of the patients’ transfusion history, and significantly increased haemoglobin levels (before-and-after-treatment median haemoglobin values = 8.20 vs. 9.40 g/dl, respectively; Wilcoxon Z test, p < .001). A comparatively greater increment in haemoglobin levels among patients who responded to first vs. additional lines of chemotherapy was also observed. Importantly, we additionally found moderate-to-strong positive associations between increments in haemoglobin levels and corresponding increments both in psychological well-being and QoL (FACT-An scores) and the patients’ cognitive status (mini-mental state evaluation scores). After statistically controlling for possible concurrent benefits of anti-myeloma therapy, increments in haemoglobin levels clearly predicted both increments in socio-relational FACT-An scores (Spearman’s rho = 0.60, p < .001) and in cognitive functioning scores (Spearman’s rho = 0.49, p < .006). Binocrit thus appears as an effective, well-tolerated agent for the management of myeloma anaemia, whose documented benefits include amelioration of anaemia, reduction in transfusion, and improvements in the patients’ social-relational functioning and cognitive well-being.

  • Allogeneic hematopoietic stem cell transplantation for non-Hodgkin’s
           lymphomas: a retrospective analysis of 77 cases

      Pages: 787 - 796
      Abstract: Abstract Allogeneic hematopoietic stem cell transplantation (allo-SCT) is a therapeutic option for relapsed, advanced, and otherwise incurable non-Hodgkin’s lymphomas (NHL) suggested by the existence of a graft-versus-lymphoma effect. The main complications are graft-versus-host disease and infections. We performed a retrospective analysis of patients with NHL, who received an allo-SCT between January 1995 and December 2014. The parameters that had an impact on overall survival were age ≤60 years old, chemosensitive disease pre-allo-SCT, and indolent NHL histology. The parameters that had an impact on progression-free survival were age ≤60 years old and chemosensitive disease pre-allo-SCT. Only aggressive NHL histology and refractory disease pre-allo-SCT showed an increased risk of death in the multivariate model. The use of allo-SCT for young patients with multiple relapsed chemosensitive indolent NHL is a suitable option. Despite poor prognosis, young aggressive NHL patients can be considered for allo-SCT provided they have chemosensitive disease.

      Abstract: Abstract There are no epidemiological data on BK virus associated hemorrhagic cystitis (BKHC) in adult allogeneic stem cell transplantation in Germany available and associations with clinical conditions like GvHD are controversially discussed. Therefore, we conducted a nationwide survey among haematologists and urologists about this disease. We developed two questionnaires, one for haematologists (26 items) and one for urologists (20 items) concerning BKHC in adult allogeneic stem cell transplantation with epidemiological data and clinical implications. The survey was sent out at least three times to EBMT registered centres performing at least five transplantations a year, leading to 39 centres. The recruiting time was between January and June 2016. Total response rates were 76.9% among haematologists and 74.4% among urologists. BKHC seems to appear less frequent in this survey than it is described in the literature. Six deaths in the last 5 years due to this disease have been reported. Interestingly, haematologists as well as urologists mostly think that local therapy is most effective while 50.0% stated that there is no real effective oral or intravenous medication. Associations with other clinical conditions mentioned were heterogeneous, e.g. transplantation type, CMV reactivation, acute GvHD, nephropathy and worse clinical outcome. There was a significant discrepancy between haematologists and urologist concerning the association with acute GvHD (p = 0.004). We need prospective, multicentric clinical studies to evaluate local therapy and for developing a risk stratification model since this disease can be severe with morbidity and rarely mortality. In our opinion, this should be an interdisciplinary approach.

      Abstract: Abstract Disease relapse after one or more allogeneic hematopoietic cell transplantations (HCT) represents a therapeutic challenge with all options bearing a significant morbidity and mortality. Haploidentical HCT may induce more pronounced anti-leukemic effects and was evaluated at our center in 25 consecutive patients with disease relapse after preceding HCT receiving haploidentical grafts after in vitro T cell depletion. Overall survival at 1 and 2 years was 32 and 14%, respectively. Of note, patients with complete remission (CR) before haploidentical HCT had a very favorable overall survival of 41.7% at 2 years. Cumulative incidence of non-relapse mortality was 36 and 40% at 1 and 2 years, respectively. With a cumulative incidence for relapse of 36 and 45.6% at 1 and 2 years, disease-free survival (DFS) was 28 and 14.4%, respectively. Here also, patients with CR before haploidentical HCT had a favorable DFS of 42% at 2 years. Only very limited acute (11 patients (44%) with a median grade 1) and chronic graft versus host disease (GvHD) (5 patients (11%), limited grade only) was observed. The main complications and causes of death comprised—besides relapse—infections and bleeding complications. Hence, haploidentical HCT can achieve long-term survival comparable to second transplantation with matched or mismatched donors for patients with otherwise deleterious prognosis and should be considered as a treatment option for patients experiencing disease relapse after previous allogeneic HCT.

  • Glucose-6-phosphate dehydrogenase deficiency and risk of diabetes: a
           systematic review and meta-analysis
    • Authors: Yin Key Lai; Nai Ming Lai; Shaun Wen Huey Lee
      Pages: 839 - 845
      Abstract: Abstract Emerging epidemiological evidence suggests that patients with glucose-6-phosphate dehydrogenase (G6PD) deficiency may have a higher risk of developing diabetes. The aim of the review was to synthesise the evidence on the association between G6PD deficiency and diabetes. A systematic search on Medline, EMBASE, AMED and CENTRAL databases for studies published between January 1966 and September 2016 that assessed the association between G6PD deficiency and diabetes was conducted. This was supplemented by a review of the reference list of retrieved articles. We extracted data on study characteristics, outcomes and performed an assessment on the methodological quality of the studies. A random-effects model was used to compute the summary risk estimates. Fifteen relevant publications involving 949,260 participants were identified, from which seven studies contributed to the meta-analysis. G6PD deficiency was associated with a higher odd of diabetes (odds ratio 2.37, 95% confidence interval 1.50–3.73). The odds ratio of diabetes among men was higher (2.22, 1.31–3.75) compared to women (1.87, 1.12–3.12). This association was broadly consistent in the sensitivity analysis. Current evidence suggests that G6PD deficiency may be a risk factor for diabetes, with higher odds among men compared to women. Further research is needed to determine how G6PD deficiency moderates diabetes.

      Pages: 847 - 858
      Abstract: Abstract Cell adhesion-mediated drug resistance (CAM-DR) remains the primary obstacle in human multiple myeloma (MM) therapy. In this study, we aimed at investigating the expression and biologic function of ARF1 in MM. We determined that ARF1 expression was positively correlated with cell proliferation and knockdown of ARF1 contributed to CAM-DR. The enhancement in the adhesion of MM cells to fibronectin (FN) or the bone marrow stroma cell line HS-5 cells translated to an increased CAM-DR phenotype. Importantly, we showed that this CAM-DR phenotype was correlated with the phosphorylation of Akt and ERK in MM cells. Moreover, we sought to determine whether ARF1 could interact with p27 in RPMI8226 cells. Knockdown of ARF1 also significantly decreased pT157-p27 protein expression in RPMI8226 cells. Our research shows ARF1 may reverse CAM-DR by regulating phosphorylation of p27 at T157 in MM. Taken together, our data shed new light on the molecular mechanism of CAM-DR in MM, and targeting ARF1 may be a novel therapeutic approach for improving the effectiveness of chemotherapy in MM.
