  • Rabbit antithymocyte globulin dose does not affect response or survival as
           first-line therapy for acquired aplastic anemia: a multicenter
           retrospective study
    • Authors: Diego V. Clé; Elias H. Atta; Danielle S. P. Dias; Carlos B. L. Lima; Mariana Bonduel; Gabriela Sciuccati; Larissa A. Medeiros; Michel M. de Oliveira; Patricia B. Blum Fonseca; Sara T. O. Saad; Nelson Hamerschlak; Marco A. Salvino; Marlene P. Garanito; Antonio Pazin-Filho; Phillip Scheinberg; Rodrigo T. Calado

      Abstract: In a prospective randomized study, treatment for aplastic anemia (AA) with rabbit antithymocyte globulin (r-ATG) and cyclosporine showed inferior hematological response and survival in comparison to horse antithymocyte globulin (h-ATG) and cyclosporine. However, h-ATG was discontinued in most Asian, South American, and European countries, where r-ATG became the only ATG formulation available. We retrospectively evaluated consecutive patients with acquired AA who received either rabbit (n = 170) or horse (n = 85) ATG and cyclosporine for first-line treatment from 1992 to 2014 in seven referral centers in Brazil and Argentina. Overall response at 3 months was 17% (95%CI, 11–23%) for r-ATG and 44% (95%CI, 33–55%) for h-ATG (p < 0.001). At 6 months, it was 31% (95%CI, 34–39%) for r-ATG and 59% (95%CI, 48–69%) for h-ATG (p < 0.001). Overall survival at 5 years was 57% (95%CI, 47–65%) for r-ATG and 80% (95%CI, 69–87%) for h-ATG (log-rank = 0.001). Relapse was significantly higher in patients receiving h-ATG (28%; 95%CI, 17–43%) as compared to r-ATG (9.4%; 95%CI, 4–21%; log-rank, p = 0.01). The type of ATG was the only factor associated with both response and survival. The r-ATG dose varied from 1 to 5 mg/kg/day, but it did not correlate with outcomes. In summary, this is the largest multicenter study comparing the two ATG formulations in AA. Our results indicate that the dose of r-ATG does not influence hematologic response or survival in first-line therapy for acquired AA. Considering the toxicity and costs of r-ATG, our findings challenge its aggregate benefit to cyclosporine therapy and further strengthen that h-ATG should remain standard therapy in AA.

  • Successful treatment of refractory/relapsed acquired pure red cell aplasia
           with sirolimus
    • Authors: Zhangbiao Long; Fan Yu; Yali Du; Hongmin Li; Miao Chen; Junling Zhuang; Bing Han
      Pages: 2047 - 2054
      Abstract: Acquired pure red cell aplasia (aPRCA) is a kind of anemia characterized by severe reticulocytopenia and obvious bone marrow erythroblastic cells decreased. Some patients are refractory or intolerant to the first-line therapy (cyclosporine A with/without steroids). The effects of the second-line therapy are not satisfactory and sometimes not available. In this study, we analyzed the efficacy and side effect of sirolimus on refractory/relapsed aPRCA and investigated the possible mechanism of sirolimus on immune regulation. Twenty-one patients with refractory/relapsed aPRCA were enrolled in this study and were administered with sirolimus. Totally, 76.2% of patients responded to the sirolimus with 42.9% complete response during the experimental period. The median time for reaction was 4 months. Side effects were tolerable including infections; mild oral mucositis; sinus tachycardia, the increase of creatinine, transaminase, triglyceride, or cholesterol; and thrombocytopenia. Most patients stayed in remission or remained stable during the follow-up period. Early drug withdrawal may lead to quick relapse. Compared with healthy control, Treg levels in patients with aPRCA reduced significantly before sirolimus but recovered after successful treatment. Level of Treg cells correlated with hemoglobin level after effective sirolimus treatment. Thus, sirolimus was effective and tolerable for refractory/relapsed aPRCA. Effective sirolimus treatment may lead to the upregulation of Treg cells which may partly explain the underlying mechanism.

  • Comparison of argatroban and fondaparinux for the management of patients
           with isolated heparin-induced thrombocytopenia
    • Authors: Fahad A. S. Al-Eidan; Saud Alrawkan; Huda Alshammary; Mark A. Crowther
      Pages: 2055 - 2059
      Abstract: Heparin-induced thrombocytopenia (HIT) is a serious complication of the administration of heparin and its derivatives. Non-heparin anticoagulants such as argatroban and fondaparinux are widely used in the management of HIT to compare the effectiveness of argatroban and fondaparinux in the resolution of thrombocytopenia and to compare clinical outcomes in patients with isolated HIT. A retrospective cohort analysis was performed at King Abdulaziz Medical City (KAMC) on patients diagnosed with isolated HIT between 31 Jan, 2014 and 30 June, 2017. Demographics data, non-heparin anticoagulants, related laboratory results, and clinical outcomes were retrieved and analysed. The cohort comprised a total of 95 adult patients who received either argatroban (56 patients) or fondaparinux (39 patients) for isolated HIT. The median age and sex distribution were similar in both argatroban and fondaparinux groups. The mean (+ SD) time (in days) for the resolution of thrombocytopenia was 3.5 (± 1.8) for patients who received argatroban and 3.7 (± 1.7) for patients administered fondaparinux (p = 0.843). Thromboembolic events occurred in five patients (8.9%) administered argatroban and in three patients (7.7%) administered fondaparinux (p = 0.382). There was no significant difference in the rates of bleeding or death (p = 0.829); however, the small number of cases limits our ability to draw conclusions about these outcomes. In this retrospective study, fondaparinux and argatroban were similarly effective in resolving thrombocytopenia, preventing further thromboembolic events, and maintaining safety in patients with confirmed HIT. To confirm this observation, larger prospective studies are needed.

      Abstract: Neutropenic patients with hematological diseases are prone to severe infections. Granulocyte transfusion therapy (GTX) is considered as a logical therapeutic approach for these problems. However, the efficacy and complications of GTX have not been well identified. We retrospectively analyzed the clinical outcomes of GTX therapy in our hospital from 2009 to 2015. After 117 granulocyte transfusions for 47 patients, 72.3% of these patients’ infections were effectively improved, and the overall survival rates at 30 and 120 days were 66.0 and 57.5%, respectively. The patients who experienced neutrophil recovery within 10 days after their therapy initiation had a better response and long-term survival period (14/15, 93.3%, vs 20/32, 62.5%, P = 0.037). Higher-dose granulocytes (> 2.55 × 108/kg) might improve the effective rate of infection in the patients who had more than 10 days neutrophil recovery time (17/23, 73.9%, vs 3/9, 33.3%, P = 0.049). In addition, GTX benefited the patients who suffered from pulmonary bacterial infections (16/20, 80%) compared with the bloodstream infection group (7/12, 58.3%) and skin or mucous infection group (1/5, 20%). The primary data showed that GTX did not affect the incidence of graft-versus-host disease (GVHD) and cytomegalovirus viremia when patients received further HSCT treatment. Collectively, GTX was an adjunct treatment modality for severely neutropenic patients who were likely to experience hematopoietic recovery. More randomized trials are needed to verify the efficacy and complications of GTX therapy.

      Abstract: This study investigated the incidence rate and features of vascular adverse events (VAEs) in Japanese patients with chronic myeloid leukemia (CML) who were treated with tyrosine kinase inhibitors (TKIs). The analysis included 369 CML patients in the chronic or accelerated phases, selected from the CML Cooperative Study Group database; 25 events in 23 (6.2%) of these patients were VAEs. At the time of VAE incidence, nine patients were on treatment with imatinib, 12 with nilotinib, three with dasatinib, and one with bosutinib. VAE incidence comprised 13 cases of ischemic heart disease (IHD), eight of cerebral infarction (CI), and four of peripheral arterial occlusive disease (PAOD). IHD incidence rate in the study population was higher than that in the age-matched general population, particularly in nilotinib-treated patients, while CI incidence rate was almost equivalent. Compared with the Suita score, the SCORE chart and the Framingham score risk assessment tools detected more patients with high or very high risk of VAEs. In conclusion, incidence of IHD requires closer monitoring in nilotinib-treated patients. More detailed investigations for determining the most useful tool to predict VAE incidence and long-term analysis of therapy-related VAE cases are needed for improving safety during TKI therapy.

      Abstract: With tyrosine kinase inhibitors (TKI), chronic myeloid leukemia (CML) patients are achieving similar rates of survival to the general population and some treatment aspects such as adherence and drug-to-drug interactions (DDI) are becoming increasingly important. Our aim was to investigate the frequency and real clinical consequences of DDI between TKI and concurrent medications in CML. We performed a retrospective multicenter study including 105 patients receiving 134 TKI treatments. Sixty-three patients (60%) had at least one potential DDI. The mean number of concomitant medications was 4.8 (0–19). The mean number of DDI by TKI treatment was 1.2 (0–8); it increased with the number of concomitant medications and age in a significant manner. A total of 159 DDI were detected, involving 55 different drugs. The most common drug classes involved were proton pump inhibitors, statins, and antidepressants. A DDI-related clinical effect (toxicity and/or lack of efficacy) was suspected during the common course of patient follow-up in only five patients (4.7%). This number increased to 20% when data were centrally reviewed. Most of the adverse events (AE) attributed to DDIs were mild. The most common were diarrhea, vomiting, edema, cramps, and transaminitis. Nilotinib and dasatinib showed a tendency towards a higher risk of DDI compared with imatinib. There were no significant differences in AE frequency or in treatment response between patients with or without DDI. Due to their frequency, and their potential to cause clinically relevant effects, DDI are an important aspect of CML management.

  • Profile of fibrosis-related gene transcripts and megakaryocytic changes in
           the bone marrow of myelodysplastic syndromes with fibrosis
    • Authors: Kais Hussein; Angelika Stucki-Koch; Hans Kreipe
      Pages: 2099 - 2106
      Abstract: Bone marrow fibrosis (MF) in myelodysplastic syndromes (MDS) is associated with an adverse prognosis. It is likely that molecular changes similar to those in primary myelofibrosis (PMF) lead to MDS-MF, but gene expression profiling has not yet been carried out. We analysed bone marrow biopsy samples by PCR, qPCR (45 transcripts per sample), and immunohistochemistry from MDS patients with fibrosis (n = 70/119; including 19/70 MF0 > MF follow-up cases), MDS without fibrosis (n = 49/119), and 33 controls. SRSF2 and JAK2 mutations were detectable in up to 13% including 3/19 follow-up cases with evidence of clonal evolution during MF progression. MDS-MF showed increased expression of thrombospondin 1 (THBS1), TIMP metallopeptidase inhibitor 1 (TIMP1), transforming growth factor beta 1 (TGFB1), matrix metallopeptidases 2 and 14 (MMP2, MMP14), SMAD family members 3 and 4 (SMAD3, SMAD4), and miR-146b. Paralleling MF progression, a subfraction of follow-up cases showed megakaryocytic changes with increased CD42b+ pro-platelet deposition in the bone marrow. In summary, fibrosis in MDS-MF and PMF shows many molecular and morphological similarities.

  • Does the omission of vincristine in patients with diffuse large B cell
           lymphoma affect treatment outcome'
    • Authors: Charlott Mörth; Antonios Valachis; Amal Abu Sabaa; Daniel Molin; Max Flogegård; Gunilla Enblad
      Pages: 2129 - 2135
      Abstract: The standard treatment for diffuse large B cell lymphoma (DLBCL) is rituximab with CHOP (cyclophosphamide, doxorubicin, vincristine (VCR), and prednisone). Maintaining high dose intensity of cytotoxic treatment has been associated with better outcome but little is known about the role of maintaining VCR. This study aimed to answer whether the omission of vincristine due to neurotoxicity affects patient outcome. A Swedish cohort of patients primarily treated with curative intent for DLBCL or high-grade malignant B cell lymphoma was retrospectively analyzed. In total, 541 patients treated between 2000 and 2013 were included. Omission of VCR was decided in 95 (17.6%) patients and was more often decided during the last three cycles (n = 86, 90.5%). The omission of VCR did not affect disease-free or overall survival neither in the whole cohort nor in elderly patients. On the contrary, the relative dose intensity of doxorubicin was associated with overall survival (p = 0.014). Kidney or adrenal involvement (p = 0.014) as well as bulky disease (p = 0.037) was found to be associated with worse overall survival. According to our results, clinicians can safely decide to omit VCR in case of severe neurotoxicity due to VCR but should be aware of the importance of giving adequate doses of doxorubicin during treatment given the growing body of evidence on the role of dose intensity on survival. Considering the association of bulky disease and kidney/adrenal manifestation of lymphoma on survival, further studies should focus on whether the treatment options for these subgroups need to be individualized.

      Pages: 2137 - 2144
      Abstract: Although the survival rate of diffuse large B cell lymphoma (DLBCL) has increased with years, there are still patients who do not achieve complete remission or who relapse, especially patients with activated B cell-like (ABC) DLBCL. Bortezomib, a proteasome inhibitor, has shown activity in diffuse large B cell lymphoma, especially in the subtype of ABC DLBCL. We conducted a meta-analysis to compare the efficacy and adverse events in bortezomib-containing regimens with standard R-CHOP regimen in treating DLBCL. Our results show that comparing to standard R-CHOP regimen, bortezomib-containing regimen could not prolong the survival in patients with ABC DLBCL. And patients who received bortezomib had a trend of higher risk with peripheral neuropathy, although there is no significant statistical difference.

  • In contrast to high CD49d, low CXCR4 expression indicates the dependency
           of chronic lymphocytic leukemia (CLL) cells on the microenvironment
    • Authors: Csilla Kriston; Márk Plander; Ágnes Márk; Anna Sebestyén; Edina Bugyik; András Matolcsy; Gábor Barna
      Pages: 2145 - 2152
      Abstract: CD49d and CXCR4 are key determinants of interactions between chronic lymphocytic leukemia (CLL) tumor cells and their microenvironment. In this study, we investigated the effect of CD49d and CXCR4 expressions on survival of CLL cells. Primary CLL cells were cultured with CD49d ligand, VCAM-1, or bone marrow stromal cells (BMSCs); then, apoptosis and immunophenotype analyses were performed. VCAM-1 treatment could not induce direct apoptosis protection or immunophenotype change on the CD49d-expressing CLL cells, but resulted in actin reorganization. The BMSC-induced apoptosis protection was independent from the presence of CD49d expression of CLL cells, but showed an inverse correlation with their CXCR4 expression level. We suppose that CD49d contributes to enhanced survival of leukemic cells by mediating migration to the protective microenvironment, not by direct prevention of apoptosis. Moreover, CLL cells with low CXCR4 expression represent a subpopulation that is more dependent on the microenvironmental stimuli for survival, and show increased “death by neglect” when separated from the supportive niche.

  • PD-1 genotype of the donor is associated with acute graft-versus-host

      Abstract: Programmed death 1 (PD-1) activation triggers an immune checkpoint resulting in inhibition of T cells that leads to peripheral tolerance. Some PD-1 polymorphisms have been described and associated with the development of autoimmune diseases or cancer predisposition, but there are few data concerning the relevance of such polymorphisms on the clinical outcome after allogeneic hematopoietic stem cell transplant (alloHSCT). We analyzed the distribution of the SNPs PD-1.1G/A (rs36084323) and PD-1.3G/A (rs11568821) genotypes of the donor in a cohort of 1485 alloHSCT from HLA-identical sibling donors. We found an increased risk of grades II to IV graft-versus-host disease (GvHD) in patients receiving grafts from donors homozygous for the G allele at the rs36084323 SNP (P = 0.033; hazard ratio [HR] 2.2; 95% confidence interval [CI] 1.1 to 4.8) and also from donors homozygous for the A allele at the rs11568821 position (P < 0.001; HR 4.5, 95%CI 2.0 to 10.1). In contrast, the PD-1 genotype of the donor did not show association with overall survival or relapse incidence. These results suggest that the PD-1 genotype of the donor plays an important role for the development of acute GvHD after alloHSCT from HLA-identical sibling donors.

  • Fatigue at baseline is associated with geriatric impairments and

      Pages: 2235 - 2243
      Abstract: Prospective data on fatigue in elderly persons with a hematological malignancy are rare. We aimed to determine the prevalence of fatigue and its association with clinical outcome and geriatric impairments in older individuals newly diagnosed with blood cancer. The EORTC QLQ-C30 and a multidimensional geriatric assessment (MGA) were performed in parallel in 149 consecutive patients aged > 67 years (median 77.8 years) at Innsbruck Medical University between January 2009 and April 2016. Fatigue as defined by EORTC QLQ-C30 was the most prevalent symptom (84%) and was significantly associated with self-reported role and physical functioning, global health status and insomnia, dyspnea, and loss of appetite (p < 0.001). Remarkably, pronounced fatigue was associated with impaired performance status and objective functional capacities in MGA, with altered depression scoring, G8 screening, and elevation of serum inflammation markers (p < 0.001). Patients with minor fatigue had a median overall survival (OS) of 26.4 months, whereas those with marked fatigue displayed an OS of 7.0 months (p < 0.001). The association between fatigue and shortened OS was supported in multivariate analyses (HR 1.74, CI 1.09–2.76; p = 0.021). Fatigue is seen to have a high prevalence and to be an adverse prognostic factor in elderly patients with a hematological malignancy. The strong impact of fatigue on clinical performance and OS emphasizes the relevance of patient-reported outcomes in individualized treatment algorithms. Patients will benefit from identification of fatigue, allowing timely interventions. The correlation between fatigue, impaired performance, nutritional status, and inflammation might suggest an underlying common pathway.
