Primary Breast Lymphoma Mimicking Metastatic Breast Cancer on 18F-FDG PET-CT.

J Pak Med Assoc 2022 Jun;72(6):1241-1242

Department of Hematology, Kuwait Cancer Control Center, Kuwait.

18F-Fluorodeoxyglucose (FDG) PET-CT is an excellent imaging modality for the evaluation of non-Hodgkin lymphoma (NHL). We report a case of a 45-year-old woman presented with a large right breast mass and suspicious right axillary lymph nodes referred for 18F-FDG PET-CT for staging. 18F-FDG PET-CT images show large hypermetabolic right breast mass infiltrating the skin, multiple hypermetabolic right axillary and subpectoral lymph nodes, along with multiple hypermetabolic bone lesions at axial and appendicular skeleton.

Development and Characterization of 3D Hybrid Spheroids for the Investigation of the Crosstalk Between B-Cell Non-Hodgkin Lymphomas and Mesenchymal Stromal Cells.

Onco Targets Ther 2022 17;15:683-697. Epub 2022 Jun 17.

Flow Cytometry Laboratory, Department of Cancer Pathomorphology, Maria Sklodowska-Curie National Research Institute of Oncology, Warsaw, Poland.

Purpose: B-cell non-Hodgkin lymphomas (B-NHLs) are the most common lymphoproliferative malignancy. Despite targeted therapies, the bone marrow involvement remains a challenge in treating aggressive B-NHLs, partly due to the protective interactions of lymphoma cells with mesenchymal stromal cells (MSCs). However, data elucidating the relationship between MSCs and B-NHLs are limited and inconclusive due to the lack of reproducible in vitro three-dimensional (3D) models. Read More

ALK+ Anaplastic Large Cell Lymphoma (ALCL)-Derived Exosomes Carry ALK Signaling Proteins and Interact with Tumor Microenvironment.

Cancers (Basel) 2022 Jun 14;14(12). Epub 2022 Jun 14.

Department of Oncology and Pathology, Karolinska Institutet, SE-17176 Stockholm, Sweden.

The oncogenic pathways activated by the NPM-ALK chimeric kinase of ALK+ anaplastic large cell lymphoma (ALCL) are well characterized; however, the potential interactions of ALK signaling with the microenvironment are not yet known. Here we report that ALK+ ALCL-derived exosomes contain critical components of ALK signaling as well as CD30, and that exosome uptake by lymphoid cells led to increased proliferation and expression of critical antiapoptotic proteins by the recipient cells. The bone marrow fibroblasts highly uptake ALK+ ALCL-derived exosomes and acquire a cancer-associated fibroblast (CAF) phenotype. Read More

Circulating lncRNA- and miRNA-Associated ceRNA Network as a Potential Prognostic Biomarker for Non-Hodgkin Lymphoma: A Bioinformatics Analysis and a Pilot Study.

Biomedicines 2022 Jun 4;10(6). Epub 2022 Jun 4.

Molecular Oncology and Viral Pathology Group, Research Center of IPO Porto (CI-IPOP)/[email protected] (Health Research Network), Portuguese Oncology Institute of Porto (IPO Porto)/Porto Comprehensive Cancer Center (Porto.CCC), 4200-072 Porto, Portugal.

Non-Hodgkin lymphoma (NHL) is characterized by a great variability in patient outcomes, resulting in the critical need for identifying new molecular prognostic biomarkers. This study aimed to identify novel circulating prognostic biomarkers based on an miRNA/lncRNA-associated ceRNA network for NHL. Using bioinformatic analysis, we identified the miRNA-lncRNA pairs, and using RT-qPCR, we analyzed their plasma levels in a cohort of 113 NHL patients to assess their prognostic value. Read More

Secondary B-cell acute lymphoblastic leukaemia in a patient with multiple myeloma.

BMJ Case Rep 2022 Jun 22;15(6). Epub 2022 Jun 22.

Hematology and Oncology, VA West Los Angeles Medical Center, Los Angeles, California, USA.

Although patients with multiple myeloma (MM) have improved survival with current therapies, there remains a long-term risk of treatment-associated second primary malignancies. We present a case of a patient with IgG kappa MM undergoing treatment for relapsed disease who was noted to have progressive pancytopenia.

Ann Hematol 2022 Jun 22. Epub 2022 Jun 22.

BMT Unit, Tel Aviv Sourasky Medical Center, 6 Weizman St, Tel Aviv, Israel.

Anti CD-19 chimeric antigen receptor T (CAR-T) cells demonstrate effective early anti-tumor response; however, impaired hematopoietic recovery is observed in about 30% of patients with prolonged cytopenia appearing as an unmet need for optimal treatment. All adult patients given commercially available anti CD-19 CAR-T for diffuse large B cell lymphoma (DLBCL) were screened at 21-28 days after CAR-T infusion for cytopenia. In case of severe persistent cytopenia, patients were given TPO receptor agonists. Read More
