  • Assessment of two main therapeutic regimens of chronic lymphocytic
           leukemia in a major referral center in Syria

    • Authors: Lujain Hamdan, Firas Hussein, Samer Akel
      Abstract: Introduction: Due to the high cost of targeted therapy, chemoimmunotherapy regimens remain the standard therapy for chronic lymphocytic leukemia in many developing countries. In this study, we compare the treatment outcomes of the two main chemoimmunotherapeutic regimens. Material and methods: Data was obtained from the oncology department archives at Tishreen University Hospital between 2016 and 2020. We enrolled previously untreated, fit patients with chronic lymphocytic leukemia who were treated with one of two regimens: either a fludarabine, cyclophosphamide, and rituximab regimen, or a bendamustine and rituximab regimen. Results: 78 patients were enrolled in the study. 56.8% of the fludarabine, cyclophosphamide, and rituximab group achieved complete response versus 73.5% of the bendamustine and rituximab group. Progression-free survival was slightly shorter for fludarabine, cyclophosphamide, and rituximab than for bendamustine and rituximab [median 15.1 months [95% confidence interval {CI} 12.4–17.8] vs. 17.7 months (95% CI 15.4–20.1)] without statistical significance. In elderly patients (>65 years) median progression-free survival (PFS) was significantly (p = 0.046) longer with the bendamustine and rituximab treatment [median 19.9 months (95% CI 17.2–22.5)] than with the fludarabine, cyclophosphamide, and rituximab [median 11.6 months (6–17.2)]. Regarding overall survival, no significant difference between the two groups was documented. Delay and deletion of cycles, neutropenia and anemia were more frequent with the fludarabine, cyclophosphamide, and rituximab group. Furthermore, we found that elevated lactate dehydrogenase, positive expression of ZAP-70, stage C, and splenomegaly are all indicators of poor prognosis in correlation with PFS. Conclusions: Our study found that the bendamustine and rituximab regimen is safer than, and has comparable efficacy to, the standard therapy of fludarabine, cyclophosphamide, and rituximab for previously untreated, fit patients with chronic lymphocytic leukemia.

  • Neutropenic enterocolitis and multidrug-resistant bacteria colonization in
           lymphoma patients undergoing autologous stem cell transplantation

    • Authors: Monika Joks, Joanna Rupa-Matysek, Magdalena Matuszak, Anna Łojko-Dankowska, Lidia Gil
      Abstract: Introduction: There is little iterature data regarding neutropenic enterocolitis (NE) development after autologous hematopoietic cell transplantation (auto-HCT) in non-Hodgkin lymphoma (NHL) patients. The aim of this study was to determine the incidence, risk factors, and clinical outcome of NE after auto-HCT in NHL patients with respect to the impact of multidrug-resistant Gram-negative bacteria (MDRG) and vancomycin-resistant enterococci colonization on the early outcome after auto-HCT. Material and methods: This retrospective single-center analysis included a total of 65 NHL patients who underwent auto-HCT after BEAM (BCNU, etoposide, cytosine arabinoside, melphalan) conditioning (BEAM-auto-HCT). Results: NE was diagnosed in nine (13.8%) patients, a median four days after auto-HCT. In 6/9 (66%) patients, septic shock following NE was diagnosed. In univariate analysis, MDRG colonization before BEAM-auto-HCT was the only factor significant for NE development [odds ratio (OR) 2.4 (1.14–5.0), p = 0.027], although this was not confirmed in multivariate analysis. Additionally, NE [OR 5.2 (1.9–13.9), p = 0.001] and MDRG colonization prior to transplant [OR 2.7 (1.0–7.0), p = 0.041] were independent factors for septic shock development. Conclusions: Our findings suggest that NHL patients presenting with MDRG colonization before transplant should be kept under careful surveillance because of the high risk of the development of early severe infectious complications, including abdominal ones.

  • In seeking diagnostic tool for laboratory monitoring of FXII-targeting
           agents, could assessment of rotational thromboelastometry (ROTEM) in
           patients with factor XII deficiency be useful'

    • Authors: Paulina Stelmach, Weronika Nowak, Marta Robak, Emilia Krzemińska, Marzena Tybura-Sawicka, Krzysztof Chojnowski, Jacek Treliński
      Abstract: Introduction: Targeting factor XII (FXII) is a new concept for safe thrombosis prophylaxis. Global hemostasis tests offer promise in terms of the laboratory monitoring of FXII inhibition. The present study examines selected parameters of rotational thromboelastometry (ROTEM) in patients with FXII deficiency. The objective of this study was to assess the impact of FXII deficiency on selected parameters of ROTEM, which can be significant in the laboratory monitoring of FXII inhibition. Material and methods: The study included 20 patients with FXII deficiency ≤40% and 21 volunteers free of it. Clotting time (CT), clot formation time (CFT), alpha angle (α), maximum clot firmness (MCF), and maximum lysis (ML) were recorded in ROTEM. Results: For the INTEM test, CT and CFT readings were markedly higher in FXII deficient patients than in controls. No marked differences in relation to MCF and ML were found. Conclusion: The results of ROTEM show that FXII deficiency has a great impact on the initiation and amplification of coagulation. This was confirmed by a number of marked correlations between FXII activity and certain ROTEM parameters. ROTEM tests merit further investigation as treatment control strategies in the context of FXII inhibition.

  • A living drug: application of CAR-T therapy for lymphoid malignancies and
           beyond

    • Authors: Anna Strzelec, Anna Klima, Natalia Gawlik-Rzemieniewska, Grzegorz Helbig
      Abstract: The ongoing development of novel personalized cancer therapies has resulted in the implementation of T cells enriched with synthetic chimeric antigen receptors, known as chimeric antigen receptors T cell (CAR-T) cells, into clinical practice. CAR-T cells are able to recognize and bind specific antigens present on the surface of target cells — so-called tumor-associated antigens. This innovative method has been approved for the treatment of hematological malignancies and may also serve as a bridge to hematopoietic stem cell transplantation. The production of the drug containing modified T cells consists of several steps — leukapheresis, T cell activation, transduction and expansion of the final CAR-T cells. Activation of CAR-T cells occurs through a pathway independent of the major histocompatibility complex, which is often associated with uncontrolled responses from the immune system and adverse reactions such as cytokine release syndrome. CAR-T therapy can only be performed in certified centers, and requires close cooperation between experienced specialists of different medical disciplines. This is what determines its effectiveness. Every step from collection and cryopreservation, through transport and modification, to thawing and infusion is strictly controlled because it has a critical impact on the quality and efficiency of the drug. Despite its proven benefits, CAR-T therapy remains available only to patients who meet well-defined criteria. These however are liable to change with the emergence of new indications.

    • Authors: Olga Troyanovska, Olga Dorosh, Halyna Lytvyn, Iryna Tsymbalyuk, Oxana Vorobel, Olena Stepanyuk, Hrystyna Bodak, Olena Kozlova, Mariya Stasiv, Nata Basiv
      Abstract: Introduction: As more data is collected, hematologists will be able to gain more insight into the impact of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) on pediatric patients with hematological malignancies. Material and methods: We analysed 21 cases of COVID-19 in pediatric patients with onco-hematological diseases treated in the Western Ukrainian Pediatric Medical Center from March 2020 through May 2021. The majority of patients (71.4%) were diagnosed with acute lymphoblastic leukemia. All patients from the analyzed cohort had an asymptomatic, mild or moderate course of coronavirus-19 infection. The most common symptoms of COVID-19 were fever, cough, gastrointestinal symptoms, and dermatitis. Severe severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 increased the risk of liver toxicity and venous thrombosis. Results and conclusion: Our analysis showed that pediatric patients with hematological malignancies need the same treatment approach for COVID-19 as for other infective complications.

  • Standardizing blood dose using body surface area and analyze the effect of
           blood storage on hemoglobin increment within pediatric patients

    • Authors: Sankalp Sharma, Sunil Jondhale, Mili Patel, Arvind Shukla, Anil Goel
      Abstract: Introduction: Pediatric patients exhibit a wide variation in weight which results in diverse transfusion practices. This study aims to standardize red blood cell (RBC) doses according to body surface area (BSA) and to analyze the role of RBC storage in post-transfusion hemoglobin levels. Material and methods: In this original prospective cohort study on hospitalized pediatric patients aged up to 14, we classified patients into transfusion-dependent (n = 31) and non-transfusion-dependent (n = 158). The non-transfusiondependent group was further classified into ≤10 kg (n = 72) or >10 kg (n = 86) according to body weight (bw). We derived a regression equation between BSA and blood dose in non-transfusion-dependent subjects, and modified the equation by fixing blood dose to 15 mL/kg bw for only BSA based blood dose. We measured pre-transfusion and post-transfusion hemoglobin (Hb) levels, and ascertained effects of blood storage ≤15 days (n = 15) and >15 days (n = 16) on posttransfusion Hb. Results: Pediatric patients ≤10 kg and >10 kg bw (n = 158); mean ± standard deviation of weight and BSA were 4.5 ± 3.1 kg; 22.9 ± 10.4 kg; 0.26 ± 0.14 m2; 0.9 ± 0.28) m2 respectively. The regression equation ≤10 kg and >10 kg bw when adjusted. Blood dose fixed at 15 mL/kg bw adjusted blood dose ≤10 kg; 15 mL/kg bw = −19.12 + 329.69x BSA m2. The regression equation >10 kg bw: adjusted blood dose >10 kg bw; 15 mL/kg bw = −158.8 + 563.3x BSA (m2). The adjusted blood dose with BSA did not exceed 20 mL/kg bw. No significant differences were observed in pre and post-transfusion Hb in transfusion-dependent (n = 31) versus non-transfusion-dependent patients (n = 158) due to the RBC storage duration. Conclusions: RBC blood dose can be standardized by regression equation between standardized RBC dosage and BSA. Post-transfusion Hb is not dependent on days of RBC storage at the blood bank.

  • Anemia of critical illness: a narrative review

    • Authors: Piotr F. Czempik, Łukasz J. Krzych
      Abstract: The prevalence of anemia in patients admitted to the intensive care unit (ICU) reaches 66%. Moreover, numerous patients develop anemia during ICU hospitalization. In fact, anemia is the most common hematologic disease in the ICU. The majority of patients hospitalized in the ICU present with acute systemic inflammation, so called systemic inflammatory response syndrome (SIRS). These patients may develop anemia of inflammation (AI). In crtitically ill patients AI may present acutely (acute systemic inflammation) or chronically (comorbidities associated with prolonged systemic inflammation), here we describe both presentations of AI as ‘anemia of critical illness’ (ACI). The second most frequent type of anemia in critically ill patients is iron-deficiency anemia (IDA). A mixed type of anemia (ACI + IDA) may also be present in these patients. The three major pathophysiological mechanisms leading to ACI are: iron restriction, decreased erythropoiesis, and
      decreased erythrocyte lifespan. Cytokines synthesized during SIRS induce the production of hepcidin that inhibits the
      only transmembrane iron exporter (ferroportin) present in the duodenum and macrophages. Etiological classification of anemia in critically ill patients poses a significant challenge to clinicians, as there is a multitudeof tests available, and there are various reference ranges for these tests reported in the literature in the patient population in question. Pure ACI or mixed ACI + IDA can be diagnosed using a single laboratory test — complete blood count with analysis of reticulocytes — which provides Hb concentration in erythrocyte and reticulocyte. The management of ACI incorporates discontinuation with erythropoiesis-stimulating agent causing anemia, reduction
      of iatrogenic blood loss, parenteral iron, and combined therapy of parenteral iron with erythropoiesis-stimulating
      agents in approved indications.
