  • Peripheral blood cytogenetics allows treatment monitoring and early
           identification of treatment failure to lenalidomide in MDS patients:
           results of the LE-MON-5 trial

      Abstract: Abstract Transfusion-dependent patients with low- or intermediate-1-risk myelodysplastic syndrome, <5% bone marrow (BM) blasts and isolated 5q-deletion received lenalidomide within the German MDS study group phase-II clinical trial LE-MON-5 (EudraCT:2008-001866-10) of the University of Duesseldorf, Germany. Cytogenetic monitoring was performed by chromosome banding analyses (CBA) of BM cells and fluorescence in situ hybridization (FISH) analyses of peripheral blood (PB) mononuclear CD34+ cells using extended probe panels. Out of 144 patients screened for study enrollment, 24% failed to meet inclusion criteria due to cytogenetic findings. Eighty-seven patients were followed with a median observation time of 30 months. Cytogenetic response detected by FISH and CBA in 74 and 66% of patients, respectively, was predictive for hematologic response as well as of high prognostic relevance. After 2 years, AML rate was 8% for all patients. Karyotype evolution was detected in 21 (FISH)–34% (CBA) of patients associated with significantly shorter AML-free survival. Disease progression was first detectable on the cytogenetic level on average 5–6 months before recurrence of transfusion dependence. Our data show for the first time in a prospective setting that a cytogenetic monitoring from the PB helps to early identify treatment failure and progressive disease in lenalidomide-treated patients to improve clinical management.

  • Fecal but not serum calprotectin is a potential marker of GVHD after stem
           cell transplantation

      Abstract: Abstract Gastrointestinal graft-versus-host disease (GvHD) represents a life-threatening complication after stem cell transplantation. Differential diagnosis between gut GvHD and other causes of diarrhea after HSCT is still subjected to endoscopy and histological findings. The research for a reliable biomarker for gut GvHD might allow an early diagnosis of this condition and a consequent prompt treatment that could reduce unfavorable outcomes. Recently, fecal calprotectin was reported as reliable marker of gut involvement. We would evaluate if serum instead of fecal calprotectin could be considered a possible biomarker of gut GvHD. Serum calprotectin was measured in a cohort of 54 patients submitted to allogeneic stem cell transplantation using ELISA assay. For a subset of 21 patients, calprotectin serum levels were compared with fecal calprotectin detection. Contrary to fecal calprotectin, we found only a trend to high level of serum calprotectin for GvHD development and gut involvement, but statistical difference was not reached. Fecal but not serum calprotectin could be considered as possible biomarker for gut GvHD.

      Abstract: Abstract The DHAP regimen (high-dose cytarabine in combination with dexamethasone and cisplatin) with or without rituximab (DHAP+/−R) is one of the most common regimens in daily practice. It is considered the standard treatment for relapse or refractory Hodgkin’s and non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma (NHL). Cisplatin nephrotoxicity is a major concern, and other platinum compounds are being tried. We performed a monocentric retrospective analysis to evaluate the use of carboplatin, so-called DHAC+/−R regimen. The purpose was to assess the toxicity of the DHAC+/−R regimen in real-life. The Dexamethasone, Cytarabine, Carboplatin (DHAC) regimen consisted of carboplatin AUC = 5 mg/ml/min (targeted area under the curve with Calvert’s formula) on day 1, cytarabine 2 g/m2 twice a day on day 2 and IV dexamethasone 40 mg from days 1 to 4. Rituximab was administrated at 375 mg/m2 on day 1 for CD20+ NHL. The interval between courses was 21 days. During the period considered, 199 patients received DHAC+/−R. For the entire cohort, median follow-up is 24 months (range, 2–82), median OS is not reached (NR), estimated 2-year OS is 75% (95% CI, 69–83) and median progression-free survival (PFS) is 46 months (95% CI, 22-NA). Of 144 patients scheduled for autologous stem cell transplantation (ASCT), 102 (71%, NA = 2) were in response after DHAC+/−R and all except 4 underwent ASCT. Grade ≥ 3 haematological toxicities were mainly thrombocytopenia (n = 101) and anaemia (n = 95). Grade ≥ 3 neutropenia occurred in 10 patients. No grade ≥ 3 renal and one grade 3 neurological toxicity were reported. DHAC+/−R is feasible in daily practice, provides good response rates and jeopardises neither stem cell collection nor ASCT.

      Abstract: Abstract Cancer cachexia is defined as a state of involuntary weight loss, attributed to altered body composition with muscle mass loss and/or loss of adiposity. Identifying the association between cancer cachexia and outcomes may pave the way for novel agents that target the cancer cachexia process. Clinical parameters for measurement of cancer cachexia are needed. We conducted a single-institution retrospective analysis that included 86 NHL patients with the aim of identifying an association between cancer cachexia and outcomes in aggressive lymphomas using the cachexia index (CXI) suggested by Jafri et al. (Clin Med Insights Oncol 9:87–93, 15). Impact of cachexia factors on progression-free survival (PFS) and overall survival (OS) were assessed using log-rank test and Cox proportional hazards regression. Patients were dichotomized around the median CXI into “non-cachectic” (CXI ≥49.8, n = 41) and “cachectic” (CXI <49.8, n = 40) groups. Cachectic patients had significantly worse PFS (HR 2.18, p = 0.044) and OS (HR = 4.05, p = 0.004) than non-cachectic patients. Cachexia as defined by the CXI is prognostic in aggressive lymphomas and implies that novel therapeutic strategies directed at reversing cachexia may improve survival in this population.

  • Carotenoid intake and risk of non-Hodgkin lymphoma: a systematic review
           and dose-response meta-analysis of observational studies
    • Authors: Feifei Chen; Jiyi Hu; Ping Liu; Jing Li; Zheng Wei; Peng Liu
      Pages: 957 - 965
      Abstract: Abstract Carotenoids may play a protective role in the development of non-Hodgkin lymphoma (NHL), but findings from epidemiological studies on the associations between carotenoid intake and NHL risk are inconsistent. We therefore performed a meta-analysis to systemically evaluate the associations. Eligible studies were identified by a search of PubMed, Web of Science, Embase, and article reference lists. We pooled risk estimates from individual studies using a random-effect model to quantify the associations between intakes of specific carotenoids and NHL risk. A total of 10 (7 case-control and 3 cohort) studies met our inclusion criteria. In the highest versus lowest analyses, intakes of alpha-carotene, beta-carotene, and lutein/zeaxanthin, but not lycopene or beta-cryptoxanthin, were associated with a significant reduced risk of NHL. The estimated summary relative risks (95% confidence intervals) for alpha-carotene, beta-carotene, and lutein/zeaxanthin were 0.87 (0.78–0.97), 0.80 (0.68–0.94), and 0.82 (0.69–0.97), respectively. Subgroup analyses showed that evidence supporting these protective associations was mostly based on studies with a case-control design. In addition, intakes of alpha-carotene and beta-carotene were associated with a significant decreased risk of diffuse large B-cell lymphoma, but not follicular lymphoma or small lymphocytic lymphoma/chronic lymphocytic leukemia. There was a significant inverse dose-response relationship between alpha-carotene intake and NHL risk (13% lower risk per 1000 μg/day increment of intake). In conclusion, our findings suggest that higher intakes of alpha-carotene, beta-carotene, and lutein/zeaxanthin might protect against NHL development. Further cohort studies with a control of plausible confounding are needed to confirm these associations.

  • Refractory plasmablastic lymphoma—a review of treatment options
           beyond standard therapy
    • Authors: Dominik Pretscher; Alexander Kalisch; Martin Wilhelm; Josef Birkmann
      Pages: 967 - 970
      Abstract: Abstract Plasmablastic lymphoma (PBL) is a rare distinct subtype of aggressive diffuse large B-cell lymphoma and a notoriously hard to treat entity with a dismal prognosis in both HIV-negative and HIV-positive patients. Clinicians often face the question of second or third line treatment. As the treatment options with novel agents in lymphomas are rapidly evolving, more and more options beyond standard chemotherapy are available. In connection with a review of treatment options with novel lymphoma agents, we present a case report of a patient with a complete remission after the administration of brentuximab vedotin and lenalidomide.

      Pages: 987 - 993
      Abstract: Abstract A nationwide, multi-institutional survey was performed in 2011 and 2015 to analyze routine practice for myeloma patients outside clinical trials in Germany. We contacted university hospitals, community hospitals, and office-based hematologists in order to enter clinical data from newly diagnosed and relapsed patients into an online platform. Complete datasets were available for 478 (2011) and 515 (2015) patients. While median age at diagnosis increased from 70 to 72 years, patients had fewer concomitant diseases (2011 61%; 2015 51%) and presented with equal performance status (ECOG 0–1, 2011 66%; 2015 68%). Cytogenetic analysis was performed in 53% (2011) and 59% (2015). Patients ≥70 years, or patients with comorbidities who were no candidates for autologous transplantation (ASCT), were less frequently tested for cytogenetic abnormalities (p = 0.001, respectively). There were more candidates for ASCT ≥65 years in 2015 (57%) than in 2011 (27%). Bortezomib was used in 92% of transplant-eligible and 66% of transplant-ineligible patients as frontline therapy in 2015. Application of bortezomib and lenalidomide for the first relapse changed from 2011 (bortezomib 45%; lenalidomide 27%) to 2015 (bortezomib 28%; lenalidomide 54%). For the second relapse, application of lenalidomide decreased from 2011 (36%) to 2015 (23%). Pomalidomide entered treatment for the second relapse in 2015 (11% of patients). Taken together, we demonstrate that results from clinical trials are implemented into general practice in Germany.

      Abstract: Abstract An improvement in quality of life and survival occurred among thalassemia major (TM) patients: pregnancy in such patients has become a reality. Safe pregnancy and delivery require efforts to ensure the best outcomes. Between 2007 and 2016, 30 TM patients had 37 pregnancies. We analyzed the hematological parameters before, during, and after pregnancies and in 19 patients a cardiovascular magnetic resonance (CMR) T2* was performed. The mean age at first pregnancy was 30 ± 4 years; the current mean age is 35 ± 5 years. Twenty-four patients (80%) had a single pregnancy, five patients (17%) had two pregnancies, and one patient (3%) became pregnant three times. Seventeen pregnancies (46%) were spontaneous, 20 (64%) needed gonadotrophin-induced ovulation and/or reproductive technologies. All pregnancies resulted in live births. Seven were twin pregnancies (19%). The mean gestational hemoglobin was 9.2 ± 0.5 g/dl, lower than pre- and postpregnancy (9.8 ± 1 g/dl, p = ns and 9.6 ± 1 g/dl, p = 0.02, respectively). Median ferritin levels increased progressively (1071, range 409–5724 ng/ml, before pregnancy vs 2231, range 836–6918 ng/ml, after pregnancy, p < 0.0001). CMR before pregnancy showed a normal cardiac T2* (mean 35.34 ± 8.90 ms) and a mean liver iron concentration (LIC) of 3.37 ± 2.11 mg/g dry weight (dw). After pregnancy, the mean cardiac T2* was 31.06 ± 13.26 ms and the mean LIC was significantly increased (9.06 ± 5.75 mg/g dw, p = 0.0001). Pregnancy is possible and safe in thalassemia major. During pregnancy, iron accumulates, especially in the liver; a prompt resumption of chelation after delivery is mandatory.

  • Is low serum albumin level a significant predictor for the development of
           heparin-induced thrombocytopenia-thrombosis'
    • Authors: Fahad A. S. Al-Eidan; J. A. Al-Gramish; H. A. Al-Zamil; M. A. Crowther
      Pages: 1033 - 1036
      Abstract: Abstract The present study investigates the effect of albumin levels in patients who have developed heparin-induced thrombocytopenia (HIT) and heparin-induced thrombocytopenia-thrombosis (HITT). A retrospective observational cohort study was conducted at King Abudlaziz Medical City (KAMC), a university teaching hospital, on patients diagnosed with HIT between June 2013 and December 2014. Clinical and laboratory findings were used to confirm HIT. Albumin levels were reported on admission as baseline and during HIT occurrence. Twenty-eight patients were identified as HIT positive by enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA), with a cutoff value of ≥1 optical density units and pretest probability “4Ts” score of ≥4. Of the 28 patients, nine (32%) developed HITT. Demographic characteristics of the patients who developed HIT and HITT were similar. The mean albumin level for patients who developed HITT was significantly lower than that for patients who developed HIT (p < 0.001). Our findings suggest that patients with low serum albumin levels are at greater risk of developing HITT. This finding awaits confirmation in larger prospective clinical trials.
