FDA Evaluating Possible Serious Risks From Umbralisib.

Am J Nurs 2022 Jun;122(6):23

Diane S. Aschenbrenner is a former member of the faculty at Notre Dame of Maryland University and the Johns Hopkins University School of Nursing. She coordinates Drug Watch:

Initial clinical trial data for umbralisib (Ukoniq), a drug currently approved to treat relapsed or refractory marginal zone lymphoma and relapsed or refractory follicular lymphoma, indicate that umbralisib may increase the risk of death or serious adverse effects when given with a specific monoclonal antibody to treat chronic lymphocytic leukemia.Patients receiving umbralisib to treat lymphomas should be evaluated closely for adverse effects. Nurses and other health care providers should report any of these adverse effects to the Food and Drug Administration's MedWatch program. Read More

Recent Advances in Dual PI3K/mTOR Inhibitors for Tumour Treatment.

Front Pharmacol 2022 9;13:875372. Epub 2022 May 9.

Personalized Drug Therapy Key Laboratory of Sichuan Province, Sichuan Academy of Medical Science and Sichuan Provincial People's Hospital, School of Medicine of University of Electronic Science and Technology of China, Chengdu, China.

The PI3K-Akt-mTOR pathway is a viable target for cancer treatment and can be used to treat various malignant tumours, including follicular lymphoma and breast cancer. Both enzymes, PI3K and mTOR, are critical in this pathway. Hence, in recent years, an array of inhibitors targeting these two targets have been studied, showing dual PI3K/mTOR inhibition compared with single targeting small molecule inhibitors. Read More

Haematologica 2022 May 19. Epub 2022 May 19.

Department of Haematology, University College London Hospitals 235 Euston Road, London.

The optimum management approach for patients with relapsed or refractory (R/R) follicular lymphoma (FL) remains uncertain. Autologous stem cell transplantation (autoSCT) is considered a standard option in suitable, younger patients with relapsed FL. AutoSCT is associated with very durable remissions in a minority but also significant, wellestablished toxicities. Read More

Ther Adv Hematol 2022 14;13:20406207221095963. Epub 2022 May 14.

Department of Hematology, National Cancer Center Hospital, Tokyo, Japan.

Introduction: Surveillance computed tomography (CT) is performed during the follow-up of patients with lymphoma who have completed initial therapy. However, studies on the clinical benefit of surveillance CT for patients with incurable subtypes, such as follicular lymphoma (FL), are limited. This study aimed to evaluate the value of surveillance CT for patients with FL after achieving the first complete response (CR) or CR unconfirmed in the rituximab era. Read More

Department of Pathology and Laboratory Medicine, Foothills Medical Centre, Cumming School of Medicine, University of Calgary, McCaig Tower, Room MT7523, 1403 29 St NW, Calgary, AB, T2N 2T9, Canada.

Follicular lymphoma (FL) is a cancer of B-cells, representing the second most common type of non-Hodgkin lymphoma and typically diagnosed at advanced stage in older adults. In contrast to the wide range of available molecular genetic data, limited data relating the metabolomic features of follicular lymphoma are known. Metabolomics is a promising analytical approach employing metabolites (molecules < 1 kDa in size) as potential biomarkers in cancer research. Read More

Unveiling the Role of the Tumor Microenvironment in the Treatment of Follicular Lymphoma.

Cancers (Basel) 2022 Apr 26;14(9). Epub 2022 Apr 26.

Medical Oncology Department, Hospital Universitario Puerta de Hierro-Majadahonda, 28222 Madrid, Spain.

Follicular lymphomas (FL) are neoplasms that resemble normal germinal center (GC) B-cells. Normal GC and neoplastic follicles contain non-neoplastic cells such as T-cells, follicular dendritic cells, cancer associated fibroblasts, and macrophages, which define the tumor microenvironment (TME), which itself is an essential factor in tumor cell survival. The main characteristics of the TME in FL are an increased number of follicular regulatory T-cells (T) and follicular helper T-cells (T), M2-polarization of macrophages, and the development of a nodular network by stromal cells that creates a suitable niche for tumor growth.

CD229 (Ly9) a Novel Biomarker for B-Cell Malignancies and Multiple Myeloma.

Cancers (Basel) 2022 Apr 26;14(9). Epub 2022 Apr 26.

Immunology Unit, Department of Biomedical Sciences, Faculty of Medicine and Medical Sciences, University of Barcelona, Casanova 172, 08036 Barcelona, Spain.

CD229 (Ly9) homophilic receptor, which belongs to the SLAM family of cell-surface molecules, is predominantly expressed on B and T cells. It acts as a signaling molecule, regulating lymphocyte homoeostasis and activation. Studies of CD229 function indicate that this receptor functions as a regulator of the development of marginal-zone B cells and other innate-like T and B lymphocytes. Read More

Spatial transcriptome of a germinal center plasmablastic burst hints at MYD88/CD79B mutants-enriched diffuse large B-cell lymphomas.

Eur J Immunol 2022 May 12. Epub 2022 May 12.

Tumor Immunology Unit, Department of Sciences for Health Promotion and Mother-Child Care "G. D'Alessandro", University of Palermo, Palermo, Italy.

The germinal center (GC) reaction results in the selection of B-cells acquiring effector Ig secreting ability by progressing towards plasmablastic differentiation. This transition is associated with exclusion from the GC microenvironment. The aberrant expansion of plasmablastic elements within the GC fringes configures an atypical condition, the biological characteristics of which have not been defined yet. Read More

Diffuse large B-cell lymphoma (DLBCL) is infiltrated with activated CD8 T-cells despite immune checkpoint signaling.

Blood Res 2022 May 13. Epub 2022 May 13.

Clinical Research Division, Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center, Seattle, WA, USA.

Background: B-cell non-Hodgkin lymphomas (NHL) are hematologic malignancies that arise in the lymph node. Despite this, the malignant cells are not cleared by the immune cells present. The failure of anti-tumor immunity may be due to immune checkpoints such as the PD-1/PDL-1 axis, which can cause T-cell exhaustion. Read More

Targeting Apoptosis in ALL.

Curr Hematol Malig Rep 2022 04 11;17(2):53-60. Epub 2022 May 11.

Comprehensive Cancer Center of Wake Forest University, Winston Salem, NC, USA.

Purpose Of Review: While the treatment of acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL) has improved significantly over the last 30 years, the majority of adult patients will have their disease relapse. The BCL-2 gene was initially discovered from follicular lymphoma research; however, the BH3 family of proteins has is emerging to be crucial in patients with ALL due to their reliance on the balance of these pro-apoptotic and anti-apoptotic proteins in the BH3 family. We discuss apoptosis in ALL, the reliance mechanisms, drug development in this space, and areas for future research. Read More
