  • Efficacy of COVID-19 Convalescent Plasma Based on Antibody Concentration

    • Abstract: Background. Convalescent plasma obtained from individuals who have recovered from severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2) contains neutralizing antibodies to the virus and has been frequently used as a treatment in hospitalized patients with severe COVID-19. Methods. We conducted a retrospective, observational cohort study involving 96 hospitalized patients with severe COVID-19 who were allocated in a 1 : 1 ratio to having received either high antibody concentration convalescent plasma or low antibody concentration convalescent plasma. Quantitative measurements of IgG to the receptor-binding domain (RBD), the S1 subunit of the spike protein, and the SARS-CoV-2 nucleocapsid (N) protein were determined from donor plasma samples. The primary outcome was all-cause mortality within 30 days following convalescent plasma administration in regard to each of the three antibody domains. Results. Within the nucleocapsid antibody domain, death occurred in 22.2% of patients in the low antibody concentration group versus 23.5% in the high antibody concentration group (). Within the RBD antibody domain, death occurred in 22.9% of patients in both the low and the high antibody concentration groups (). Within the S1 subunit antibody domain, death occurred in 27.1% of patients in the low antibody concentration group versus 18.8% in the high antibody concentration group ().Conclusions. No significant differences were observed between low and high concentration convalescent plasma in regard to overall mortality at 30 days, hospital length of stay, number of ventilator days, and subsequent receipt of invasive mechanical ventilation in patients who were previously not receiving mechanical ventilation. Trial Registration. This study was not associated with a clinical trial due to the retrospective nature of study design.

  • Cystatin C-Based Equations Detect Hidden Kidney Disease and Poor Prognosis
           in Newly Diagnosed Patients with Multiple Myeloma

    • Abstract: Objectives. The aim of this study was to compare the creatinine equations with cystatin C (CysC) equations to define renal impairment (RI) in newly diagnosed multiple myeloma (MM) patients and to analyse the equation that allows for identifying patients with more and worse prognostic factors. Methods. Renal function was evaluated prospectively in 61 patients with newly diagnosed untreated MM employing CKD-EPI and CAPA equations. The comparison was conducted using Bland–Altman graphics and Cohen’s Kappa statistic. Mann–Whitney T and Chi-square tests were used, and univariate and multivariate analyses were carried out. Results. According to the IMWG criteria, 26% of patients showed RI (3 women/13 men) whilst the use of CysC equations allowed us to identify up to 39% of patients (7 women/17 men). The CAPA equation was less biased and dispersed and more sensitive than CKD-EPI-creatinine. Furthermore, univariate analysis unveiled an association between decreased CKD-EPI-CysC and poor prognosis based on R-ISS-3. Conclusions. The IMWG criteria may underestimate kidney disease, mostly in women, which could affect the dose received as well as its toxicity. Altogether, our data suggest that equations that include CysC are more accurate to detect hidden kidney disease, as well as patients with more and worse prognostic factors, in newly diagnosed MM.

  • Concordance of Peripheral Blood and Bone Marrow Next-Generation Sequencing
           in Hematologic Neoplasms

    • Abstract: Objective. Mutational analysis by next-generation sequencing (NGS) obtained by peripheral blood NGS has been of clinical interest to use as a minimally invasive screening tool. Our study evaluates the correlation between NGS results on peripheral blood and bone marrow in hematolymphoid disease. Method. We evaluated patients who had NGS for presumed hematologic malignancy performed on peripheral blood and bone marrow within a 1-year interval of each other. We excluded cases in which chemotherapy or bone marrow transplant occurred in the interval between the two tests. The concordance across peripheral blood and bone marrow NGS results was assessed by kappa coefficient analysis. Results. A total of 163 patients were studied. Concordance of peripheral blood and bone marrow NGS found in 150 patients (92.0%) with a kappa coefficient of 0.794 (kappa standard error 0.054) and value for testing kappa

  • Bone Marrow Infiltration Is a Distinctive Risk Factor for Rituximab
           Infusion-Related Reactions in CD20-Positive B-Cell Non-Hodgkin Lymphoma

    • Abstract: Background. Bone marrow infiltration of lymphoma cells is a candidate risk factor for infusion-related reactions (IRRs) in patients with CD20-positive B-cell non-Hodgkin lymphoma (B-NHL). However, despite with the lack of sufficient data, the effect of bone marrow infiltration of B-NHL cells on the incidence rate of grade 2 or higher IRRs with the administration of rituximab has been retrospectively studied in this paper. Methods. Patients with CD20-positive B-NHL who received the rituximab induction therapy for the first time were enrolled in this study. To evaluate the bone marrow infiltration of B-NHL cells, May–Giemsa stain of bone marrow films and flow cytometry examination of bone marrow aspiration samples were performed. IRR grade was determined using the IRR criteria in the Common Terminology Criteria for Adverse Events version 4.0. Results. A total of 127 patients were eligible for this study. Grade 2 or higher IRRs were observed in 43 (34%) patients. In univariate analysis, use of glucocorticoid before rituximab infusion was a strong risk-avoiding factor for grade 2 or higher IRRs. Advanced stage of disease (Ann Arbor: stages III and IV) or bone marrow infiltration of B-NHL cells revealed the risk factors, regardless of glucocorticoid premedication. Using multivariate analysis, bone marrow infiltration was found to be an independent risk factor for patients without prior glucocorticoid use. Conclusion. Bone marrow infiltration of B-NHL cells is a risk factor for grade 2 or higher IRRs at the first rituximab induction therapy without glucocorticoid premedication.

  • Safety and Efficacy of Subcutaneous Rituximab in Previously Untreated
           Patients with CD20+ Diffuse Large B-Cell Lymphoma or Follicular Lymphoma:
           Results from an Italian Phase IIIb Study

    • Abstract: Subcutaneous (SC) rituximab may be beneficial in terms of convenience and tolerability, with potentially fewer and less severe administration-related reactions (ARRs) compared to the intravenous (IV) form. This report presents the results of a phase IIIb study conducted in Italy. The study included adult patients with CD20+ DLBCL or FL having received at least one full dose of IV RTX 375 mg/m2 during induction or maintenance. Patients on induction received ≥4 cycles of RTX SC 1400 mg plus standard chemotherapy and FL patients on maintenance received ≥6 cycles of RTX SC. Overall, 159 patients (73 DLBCL, 86 FL) were enrolled: 103 (54 DLBCL, 49 FL) completed induction and 42 patients with FL completed 12 maintenance cycles. ARRs were reported in 10 patients (6.3%), 3 (4.2%) with DLBCL and 7 (8.1%) with FL, all of mild severity, and resolved without dose delay/discontinuation. Treatment-emergent adverse events (TEAEs) and serious adverse events occurred in 41 (25.9%) and 14 patients (8.9%), respectively. Two patients with DLBCL had fatal events: Klebsiella infection (related to rituximab) and septic shock (related to chemotherapy). Neutropenia (14 patients, 8.9%) was the most common treatment-related TEAE. Two patients with DLBCL (2.8%) and 6 with FL (7.0%) discontinued rituximab due to TEAEs. 65.2% and 69.7% of patients with DLBCL and 67.9% and 73.6% of patients with FL had complete response (CR) and CR unconfirmed, respectively. The median time to events (EFS, PFS, and OS) was not estimable due to the low rate of events. At a median follow-up of 29.5 and 47.8 months in patients with DLBCL and FL, respectively, EFS, PFS, and OS were 70.8%, 70.8%, and 80.6% in patients with DLBCL and 77.9%, 77.9%, and 95.3% in patients with FL, respectively. The switch from IV to SC rituximab in patients with DLBCL and FL was associated with low risk of ARRs and satisfactory response in both groups. This trial was registered with NCT01987505.

  • Anaemia Prevalence More Than Doubles in an Academic Year in a Cohort of
           Tertiary Students: A Repeated-Measure Study in Cape Coast, Ghana

    • Abstract: Background. The stress of academic life may predispose young adults to poor dietary habits, which could potentially precipitate nutritional deficiencies, such as iron deficiency. This study evaluated factors predictive of optimal iron stores as well as changes in haematological parameters over the course of an academic year in a cohort of tertiary students. Materials and Methods. The repeated-measure cohort study recruited 117 undergraduate students from September 2018 to May 2019. Venous blood samples were drawn for full blood count estimation, qualitative glucose-6-phosphate dehydrogenase (G6PD) status, haemoglobin variants, and blood group determination during the first 2 weeks of semester 1. However, anthropometric parameters as well as full blood counts were determined for each participant during the first week and last week of semesters 1 and 2. Additionally, semistructured questionnaires were used to capture sociodemographic data. Also, serum ferritin was estimated for each participant using enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay. Results. Overall, 23.1% and 15.5% of participants inherited G6PD defect (G6PDd) or haemoglobin variants, respectively. However, group O (68/117; 58.1%) was the predominant ABO blood group and an overwhelming 90.6% (106/117) inherited Rh D antigen. The prevalence of anaemia increased from 20% at the beginning of the first semester to 45.1% at the latter part of the second semester. G6PDd participants had significantly higher median serum ferritin than G6PD normal participants ( = 0.003). Also, a significantly higher proportion of females were iron depleted (25% vs. 2.3%) or iron deficient (14.3% vs. 9.3%) compared to males. Moreover, being male, G6PD deficient, or 21–25 years was associated with increased odds of participants having optimal serum ferritin levels. Conclusion. The progression of anaemia prevalence from mild to severe public health problem over the course of one academic year should urgently be addressed.

  • Ibrutinib plus Obinutuzumab as Frontline Therapy for Chronic Lymphocytic
           Leukemia Is Associated with a Lower Rate of Infusion-Related Reactions and
           with Sustained Remissions after Ibrutinib Discontinuation: A Single-Arm,
           Open-Label, Phase 1b/2 Clinical Trial NCT0231576

    • Abstract: Ibrutinib-based therapies are costly and require continuous administration. We hypothesized combining BTK inhibition with anti-CD20 monoclonal antibodies would yield deep remissions allowing discontinuation. We enrolled 32 therapy-naïve CLL patients to receive ibrutinib plus obinutuzumab, followed by single-agent ibrutinib. Patients could discontinue ibrutinib after 36 months with sustained complete response (CR). We evaluated treatment safety, efficacy, and outcomes after ibrutinib discontinuation. The overall response rate was 100%, 28% achieved a CR, and 12.5% achieved bone marrow undetectable minimal residual disease. At a three-year median follow-up, 91% remain in remission with 100% overall survival. Five patients in sustained CR stopped ibrutinib and have not progressed. Eight non-CR patients discontinued for other reasons, with only two progressing. The treatment was safe, with a lower IRR rate. All patients responded to treatment with longer time-to-progression after discontinuation of ibrutinib. Our data support the evaluation of ibrutinib discontinuation strategies in more extensive clinical trials (https://Clinicaltrials.gov Identifier https://clinicaltrials.gov/ct2/show/NCT02315768).

  • Utility of Bruton’s Tyrosine Kinase Inhibitors in Light Chain
           Amyloidosis Caused by Lymphoplasmacytic Lymphoma (Waldenström’s
           Macroglobulinemia)

    • Abstract: Of the variety of immunoglobulin related amyloidosis (AL), immunoglobulin M (IgM) related AL represents only 6 to 10% of affected patients, and the majority of these cases are associated with underlying non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma including Waldenström’s macroglobulinemia (WM). Ibrutinib, acalabrutinib, and zanubrutinib are Bruton tyrosine kinase (BTK) inhibitors approved for certain indolent B cell non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma (NHL). BTK is a nonreceptor kinase involved in B-cell survival, proliferation, and interaction with the microenvironment. We retrospectively evaluated the tolerability and effectiveness of BTK inhibitors ibrutinib and acalabrutinib therapy in (n = 4) patients with IgM-related AL amyloidosis with underlying WM. Treatment was well tolerated with both hematologic and organ response in patients with AL amyloidosis in the setting of WM. Atrial fibrillation led to the discontinuation of ibrutinib in one patient, and acalabrutinib caused significant thumb hematoma needing dose reduction in another patient. All patients evaluated had the MYD88 mutation. This may explain the good response to BTK inhibitors therapy in our series. BTK inhibitors should be further investigated in larger prospective studies for treatment of AL amyloidosis in patients with lymphoplasmacytic lymphoma/WM.
