           lymphoma—a retrospective national multi-center study
    • Abstract: Hodgkin lymphoma (HL), a disease of mostly young patients, also peaks in the elderly. Despite the profound improvement in the outcome of young patients, in the elderly, 5-year progression-free survival (PFS) rates are under 70%. Interim PET-CT (iPET) is known to be highly predictive for PFS in young HL patients, but it has not been sufficiently validated in the elderly patient population. In this multi-center collaboration, all consecutive elderly patients (age ≥ 60) diagnosed with HL between 1998 and 2016 were retrospectively reviewed. Baseline characteristics, outcome measures, and iPET results, classified according to the Deauville score, were recorded and analyzed. We identified 78 elderly HL patients (median age 69) who underwent iPET. ABVD was the treatment regimen in 52 (67%) patients. Eighty-three percent of patients had iPET scores of 1–3 while 17% had scores of 4–5. Patients with iPET scores of 1–3 had 5-year PFS and OS rates of 72% and 82% compared with 25% and 45%, respectively, in patients with scores of 4–5 (p < 0.001). Our findings show that iPET is highly predictive of outcome in elderly HL patients and provide evidence that iPET-guided therapy in this patient population may be key to achieving superior treatment outcome.

  • Incidence, risk factors and outcomes of sinusoidal obstruction syndrome
           after haploidentical allogeneic stem cell transplantation
    • Abstract: Hepatic sinusoidal obstruction syndrome (SOS) has been rarely studied after haploidentical donor (HID) allogeneic hematopoietic stem cell transplantation (allo-HSCT). We performed a retrospective multicentre study on patients with SOS after allo-HSCT in China. The incidence, risk factors, and outcomes were compared between HID HSCT and matched related donor (MRD) HSCT. SOS developed in 0.4% of patients (HIDs: 0.4%, MRDs: 0.5%, p = 0.952) at a median time of 21.50 days (range, 1–55) after allo-HSCT (HIDs: 24 days, MRDs: 20 days, p = 0.316). For patients diagnosed with SOS, the 2-year cumulative incidence of relapse was 22.7% and 22.4% in patients receiving HID and MRD transplantation, respectively (p = 0.584). Overall survival (OS) at 2 year was 10.4% and 38.5% in the two groups (p = 0.113). The transplant-related mortality (TRM) at 100 days was 60.9% in the HID group and 38.5% in the MRD group (p = 0.178). According to the multivariate analyses, significant independent risk factors for the occurrence of SOS were delayed platelet engraftment (p = 0.007) and advanced disease status at the time of HSCT (p = 0.009). The outcomes of SOS after HID HSCT are similar to those after MRD HSCT.

  • Increased endothelial activation in α-thalassemia disease
    • Abstract: One complication of thalassemia is thromboembolism (TE), which is caused by an abnormal red blood cell surface, as well as endothelial and platelet activation. These findings are commonly observed in severe β-thalassemia. However, limited information on α-thalassemia exists. This study enrolled subjects with deletional and non-deletional α-thalassemia and normal controls (NC). Plasma and serum of subjects were tested for endothelial activation markers including thrombomodulin (TM), vascular cell adhesion molecule-1 (VCAM-1), and von Willebrand factor antigen as well as platelet activation markers including thromboxane B2 and platelet factor 4. A total of 179 subjects were enrolled: 29 in the deletional group (mean age 13.3 ± 4.4 years), 31 in the non-deletional group (mean age 12.9 ± 4.8 years), and 119 in the NC group (mean age 13.6 ± 3.0 years). Twenty nine percent of subjects in the non-deletional group received regular red blood cell transfusion and iron chelator administration. Serum ferritin level was higher in the non-deletional group than that in the deletional group. Multivariate analysis demonstrated that VCAM-1 and TM levels were increased significantly in α-thalassemia compared with NC group (816.8 ± 131.0 vs 593.9 ± 49.0 ng/ml, and 4.9 ± 0.7 vs 4.0 ± 0.4 ng/ml, P < 0.001 respectively). VCAM-1 and TM levels in the non-deletional group were significantly higher than that in the deletional group. The present study demonstrated endothelial activation in children with α-thalassemia disease, especially those in the non-deletional group, which might be one risk factor for TE in α-thalassemia disease.

  • Characterization of deletional and non-deletional alpha globin variants in
           a large cohort from Spain between 2009 and 2014
    • Abstract: The hemoglobinopathies are a group of disorders passed down through families (inherited) in which there is abnormal production or structure of the hemoglobin molecule. They are among the most common inherited diseases around the world. Those that produce abnormal hemoglobin are called structural hemoglobinopathies while thalassemia is another type of disorder that is caused by a defect in the gene production of the globin chains. In a study ambispective comprising 1623 patients, 153 subjects showed an abnormal hemoglobin and 1470 with hypochromic and microcytic anemia, and of these 1470, 23 patients were studied for simultaneously α-thalassemias and structural hemoglobinopathies. Among the α-thalassaemia cases, 1282 cases (87.2%) were deletional α-thalassemia, 172 cases (11.7%) were non-deletional α-thalassemia, and 16 cases (1.1%) were deletional and non-deletional α-thalassamias simultaneously. Thus, approximately 12% of the cases were non-deletional α-thalassaemia. Clinical diagnosis, only 19 severe cases (1 hydrops fetalis and 18 instances of Hb H disease), 1200 thalassamias traits, and 160 thalassaemia silent carriers were recorded within the α-thalassaemia. Regarding structural hemoglobinopathies, there were only 2 cases of hemoglobinopathies with low oxygen affinity and 1 case of hemoglobin M; the remaining 150 were silent hemoglobinopathies. Non-deletional α-thalassaemia represented 12% of all α-thalassemias in our region; the most common deletion in our area was the 3.7-kb deletions, followed by Asian --(SEA) and --(FIL). The alterations responsible for non-deletional α-thalassaemia are most represented by the Hph and Hb Groene Hart and, in the case of structural hemoglobinopathies, Hb Le Lamentin and Hb J-Paris.

  • Improved prognosis of extranodal NK/T cell lymphoma, nasal type of nasal
           origin but not extranasal origin
    • Abstract: Extranodal NK/T cell lymphoma (NKTCL), nasal type (ENKL) that shows no apparent nasal involvement, is termed extranasal NKTCL or non-nasal NKTCL. In this study, we aimed to explore therapeutic approaches and outcomes in patients with extranasal NKTCL in current clinical practice. A data set of patients with newly diagnosed NKTCL who were diagnosed at 31 institutes in Japan between 2000 and 2013 was used for analysis. The patients’ fitness for steroid, methotrexate, ifosfamide, l-asparaginase, and etoposide (SMILE) chemotherapy was assessed using the major inclusion criteria of the SMILE phase 2 study. Of 358 patients, 47 (13%) had extranasal NKTCL. The most frequent extranodal sites of involvement in extranasal NKTCL were skin/subcutaneous tissue (n = 18). Six (13%) of the patients with extranasal NKTCL had localized disease and were diagnosed before 2010. With a median follow-up of 5.8 years, the 2-year overall survival (OS) in patients with nasal and extranasal NKTCL was 70% (95% confidence interval [CI], 65–75%) and 34% (95% CI, 21–47%), respectively. OS in patients with nasal NKTCL had a trend toward better according to treatment era (P = 0.063). In contrast, no obvious improvement of OS was observed in extranasal NKTCL (P = 0.43). The major inclusion criteria of the SMILE-P2 were met in 21% (10/47) of patients with extranasal NKTCL and 60% (188/311) of those with nasal NKTCL (P < 0.001). Despite the advent of new treatments for ENKL, OS remains unfavorable in extranasal NKTCL. A more effective therapy is needed for extranasal NKTCL.

  • The benefit of chronic graft-versus-host disease in patients with acute
           myeloid leukemia relapsed after allogeneic stem cell transplantation
    • Abstract: To investigate the effect of chronic graft-versus-host disease (cGVHD) on the outcomes of acute myeloid leukemia (AML) patients who relapsed after allogenic hematopoietic cell transplantation, we performed a retrospective analysis on 218 patients with a median follow-up of 21.4 (3.4–179.6) months. A total of 103 patients developed cGVHD, with a 2-year cumulative incidence of 48.9% (95% CI 42.1–55.7%). The estimated 3-year overall survival was 85.7% (95% CI 75.7–95.7%), 48.8% (95% CI 31.7–66.0%), and 54.1% (95% CI 44.3–63.8%) for patients with limited cGVHD, extensive cGVHD, and without cGVHD (P < 0.001). The 3-year event-free survival were 75.5% (95% CI 63.7–87.4%), 46.0% (95% CI 28.8–63.2%), and 45.0% (95% CI 35.6–54.4%) (P < 0.001), while the 3-year cumulative relapse rates were 22.8% (95% CI 11.0–34.6%), 11.6% (95% CI 5.3–22.6%), and 40.3% (95% CI 31.0–49.6%), respectively (P < 0.001). At the last evaluation, 62 patients relapsed with 17 patients having active cGVHD and 45 without. Compared to patients relapsing without cGVHD, patients who relapsed with cGVHD had a longer duration of remission and a better 2-year post-relapse survival [10.9 months (3.7–42.2) versus 4.4 months (2.2–28.3); P < 0.001]; [32.8% (95% CI 8.2–57.4%) versus 4.5% (95% CI 0–12.8%); P = 0.043]. For patients who relapsed with cGVHD, the remission rates were both 60% after salvage chemotherapy with or without donor lymphocyte infusion (P = 1.000). In conclusion, cGVHD may exert a stronger graft-versus-leukemia effect, which may decrease the post-transplantation relapse rate and may also benefit those patients who eventually relapsed after transplantation in terms of prolong post-relapse survival.

  • Ruxolitinib therapy is associated with improved renal function in patients
           with primary myelofibrosis
    • Abstract: Recent evidence suggests that renal dysfunction may be a direct consequence of primary myelofibrosis (PMF). We performed a retrospective analysis of 100 patients with previously untreated PMF, receiving frontline treatment with single agent ruxolitinib, and compared them to 105 patients, receiving frontline treatment with a non-ruxolitinib-based therapy, matched by age, sex, DIPSS plus, and estimated glomerular filtration rate (eGFR). Use of ruxolitinib associated with a significantly higher rate of renal improvement (RI) > 10% (73% vs 50%, p = 0.01) confirmed on multivariate analysis (MVA) [odds ratio 3, 95% confidence interval (CI) 1.6–5.5, p < 0.001]. After a median follow-up of 41 months (range, 1–159 months), median failure-free survival (FFS) was 14 months (range, 1–117 months). Achievement of a RI > 10% maintained its independent association with prolonged FFS on MVA (hazard ratio 1.4, 95% CI 1.1–2, p = 0.02). Ruxolitinib can significantly improve renal function in patients with PMF, significantly impacting failure-free survival.

  • CSF3R mutations were associated with an unfavorable prognosis in patients
           with acute myeloid leukemia with CEBPA double mutations
    • Abstract: The aim of this study was to explore the clinical features and prognostic significance of CSF3R mutations in AML patients with CEBPA double mutations (CEBPAdm). One hundred one AML patients with CEBPAdm were retrospectively analyzed in this study. Mutation status of CSF3R gene, clinical features, and long-term outcomes were analyzed. The frequency of CSF3R mutations in patients with CEBPAdm was 19.80% (20/101). Patients with CSF3R mutations were associated with a lower platelet (u = 2.728, P = 0.006) and higher leukocytes (u = 3.178, P = 0.001) compared with those with wide-type CSF3R gene. The 5-year relapse-free survival (RFS) was 18.7% in patients with CSF3R mutations, which was significantly lower than those with wide-type CSF3R (31.8%) (P = 0.015). The 5-year overall survival (OS) was also significantly different between patients with and without CSF3R mutations (17.5% versus 57.4%, P = 0.019). The prevalence of CSF3R mutations was high in AML patients with CEBPAdm, which indicated a poor prognosis, and CSF3R mutations may be a new potential candidate for prognostically re-stratifying AML patients with CEBPAdm.

  • The platelet NLRP3 inflammasome is upregulated in a murine model of
           pancreatic cancer and promotes platelet aggregation and tumor growth
    • Abstract: Platelets are activated in solid cancers, including pancreatic ductal adenocarcinoma (PDA), a highly aggressive malignancy with a devastating prognosis and limited therapeutic options. The mechanisms by which activated platelets regulate tumor progression are poorly understood. The nucleotide-binding domain leucine-rich repeat containing protein 3 (NLRP3) inflammasome is a key inflammatory mechanism recently identified in platelets, which controls platelet activation and aggregation. In an orthotopic PDA mouse model involving surgical implantation of Panc02 murine cancer cells into the tail of the pancreas, we show that the NLRP3 inflammasome in circulating platelets is upregulated in pancreatic cancer. Pharmacological inhibition or genetic ablation of NLRP3 in platelets resulted in decreased platelet activation, platelet aggregation, and tumor progression. Moreover, interfering with platelet NLRP3 signaling significantly improved survival of tumor-bearing mice. Hence, the platelet NLRP3 inflammasome plays a critical role in PDA and might represent a novel therapeutic target.

  • Pediatric Langerhans cell histiocytosis: the impact of mutational profile
           on clinical progression and late sequelae
    • Abstract: Langerhans cell histiocytosis (LCH) is a clonal histiocytic disorder with recurrent mutations of BRAF and MAP2K1, but data on the impact of genetic features on progression and long-term sequelae are sparse. Cases of pediatric LCH with long-term follow-up from our institution were analyzed for mutations in BRAFV600 and MAP2K1 exons 2 and 3 by immunostaining with mutation-specific VE1 antibody, as well as allele-specific PCR and sequencing, respectively. Clinical and follow-up data were obtained from our files and a questionnaire sent to all former patients. Sixteen of 37 (43%) evaluable cases showed BRAFV600E, one case a BRAFV600D and eleven (30%) a MAP2K1 mutation. Nine cases were unmutated for both genes. All cases with risk organ involvement showed either BRAFV600 or MAP2K1 mutation. Patients with BRAFV600 mutation excluding Hashimoto-Pritzker cases had a significantly higher risk for relapses (p = 0.02). Long-term sequelae were present in 19/46 (41%) patients (median follow-up 12.5 years, range 1.0 to 30.8) with a trend for higher rates in mutated cases (mutated = 9/17, 53% versus non-BRAFV600/MAP2K1 mutated = 2/7, 29%). In addition, 8/9 cases with skin involvement including all Hashimoto-Pritzker cases (n = 3) were positive for BRAFV600E. Infants below 2 years more frequently had BRAFV600 mutations (p = 0.013). Despite favorable prognosis, pediatric LCH shows a high frequency of relapses and long-term medical sequelae.

  • Improving the safety of CAR-T cell therapy by controlling CRS-related
    • Abstract: The CD19-targeted chimeric antigen receptor T cell (CAR-T) therapy has been widely proved effective on relapsed and refractory (r/r) B cell acute lymphoblastic leukemia (B-ALL). Meanwhile, CAR-T therapy-related toxicities, including cytokine release syndrome (CRS) and neurological toxicities, are drawing researchers’ attention. In addition, our research team notices that coagulopathy and even disseminated intravascular coagulation (DIC) are common problems during CAR-T therapy. In our phase 1/2 clinical trial (NCT02965092), 53 r/r B-ALL patients underwent leukapheresis on day − 11 and received lymphodepleting chemotherapy on day − 7 to day − 5. Finally, they received split infusions of anti-CD19 CAR-T cells on day 0 to day 2. Plasma concentrations of tissue factor (TF) and platelet endothelial cell adhesion molecular-1 (PECAM-1) were also measured to identify the mechanism of coagulation disorders. The overall 1-month remission rate of the 53 patients was 88.7%. During the treatment course, 19 patients experienced grade 3–4 CRS, 8 patients developed grade 2–3 neurological toxicities. Beyond that, 30 patients (30/53, 56.6%) suffered from coagulation disorders, and half of them should be diagnosed as DIC. Benefiting from replacement and anticoagulant therapy, 14 patients successfully got out of the conditions of DIC. Remarkably, the severity of coagulopathy was positively correlated with CRS grade. What is more, plasma TF and PECAM-1 levels indicated that vascular endothelial factors played key roles in the process of CRS-related coagulopathy. To conclude, coagulation disorders frequently happen during CAR-T therapy. TF and PECAM-1 are of great importance in the etiology and pathogenesis of coagulation problems. Early and proper interventions targeted at CRS-related coagulopathy contribute a lot to the control of side effects in CAR-T therapy.
