Combination therapy with CAR T cells and oncolytic viruses: a new era in cancer immunotherapy.

Cancer Gene Ther 2021 Jun 22. Epub 2021 Jun 22.

Human Genetics Research Center, Tehran, Iran., Baqiyatallah University of Medical Sciences, Tehran, Iran.

Chimeric antigen receptor (CAR) T-cell therapy is an encouraging and fast-growing platform used for the treatment of various types of tumors in human body. Despite the recent success of CAR T-cell therapy in hematologic malignancies, especially in B-cell lymphoma and acute lymphoblastic leukemia, the application of this treatment approach in solid tumors faced several obstacles resulted from the heterogeneous expression of antigens as well as the induction of immunosuppressive tumor microenvironment. Oncolytic virotherapy (OV) is a new cancer treatment modality by the use of competent or genetically engineered viruses to replicate in tumor cells selectively. Read More

Humanized CD19-Targeted Chimeric Antigen Receptor (CAR) T Cells in CAR-Naive and CAR-Exposed Children and Young Adults With Relapsed or Refractory Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia.

J Clin Oncol 2021 Jun 22:JCO2003458. Epub 2021 Jun 22.

Division of Oncology, Children's Hospital of Philadelphia, Philadelphia, PA.

Purpose: CD19-targeted chimeric antigen receptor (CAR)-modified T cells demonstrate unprecedented responses in B-cell acute lymphoblastic leukemia (B-ALL); however, relapse remains a substantial challenge. Short CAR T-cell persistence contributes to this risk; therefore, strategies to improve persistence are needed.

Methods: We conducted a pilot clinical trial of a humanized CD19 CAR T-cell product (huCART19) in children and young adults with relapsed or refractory B-ALL (n = 72) or B-lymphoblastic lymphoma (n = 2), treated in two cohorts: with (retreatment, n = 33) or without (CAR-naive, n = 41) prior CAR exposure.

[CAR T-cell therapy for malignant B-cell lymphoma : A new treatment paradigm].

Internist (Berl) 2021 Jun 21;62(6):589-596. Epub 2021 Jun 21.

Uniklinik Köln, Medizinische Klinik 1, 50937, Köln, Deutschland.

Following the first demonstration of efficacy of anti-CD19-directed chimeric antigen receptor (CAR) T cells in a patient with relapsed chronic lymphocytic leukemia (CLL) in 2011, pivotal studies for this innovative therapy were initially conducted in multiple relapsed or refractory (r/r) childhood and young adult acute B‑cell leukemia and in aggressive adult B‑cell lymphoma. The studies demonstrated efficacy even in chemotherapy-refractory disease, resulting in the first approval of autologous and genetically engineered T cells for the treatment of r/r B‑cell acute lymphoblastic leukemia (B-ALL) in the US for the product tisagenlecleucel (Kymriah®, Novartis) back in 2018. Approval for the treatment of r/r aggressive B‑cell lymphoma followed shortly thereafter for tisagenlecleucel and axicabtagene ciloleucel (Yescarta, Kite/Gilead). Read More

The paradigm of hematological malignant versus non-malignant manifestations, driven by primary immunodeficiencies: a complex interplay.

Fam Cancer 2021 Jun 15. Epub 2021 Jun 15.

Department of Pediatric Hematology-Oncology, "Aghia Sophia" Children's Hospital, Thivon 1 & Papadiamantopoulou, 11527, Athens, Greece.

Hematological malignancies (HM) developed on underlying primary immunodeficiencies (PID) are rare and of unusual features. Differentiating between malignant and non-malignant lymphoproliferation in cases of pediatric hematology and oncology and revealing their molecular predisposition demonstrate the complex interplay between PID and HM. We retrospectively studied a case series of seven pediatric patients, all with PID with manifestations raising suspicion for HM or hypereosinophilic syndrome (HES) or confirmed HM of lymphoid origin.

Family history of early onset acute lymphoblastic leukemia is suggesting genetic associations.

Sci Rep 2021 Jun 11;11(1):12370. Epub 2021 Jun 11.

Center for Primary Health Care Research, Lund University, Malmö, Sweden.

Childhood acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL) has an origin in the fetal period which may distinguish it from ALL diagnosed later in life. We wanted to test whether familial risks differ in ALL diagnosed in the very early childhood from ALL diagnosed later. The Swedish nation-wide family-cancer data were used until year 2016 to calculate standardized incidence ratios (SIRs) for familial risks in ALL in three diagnostic age-groups: 0-4, 5-34 and 35 + years.

Degradation of Janus kinases in CRLF2-rearranged acute lymphoblastic leukemia.

Blood 2021 Jun 10. Epub 2021 Jun 10.

St Jude Children's Research Hospital, Memphis, Tennessee, United States.

CRLF2-rearranged (CRLF2r) acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL) comprises over half of Philadelphia chromosome-like (Ph-like) ALL, is associated with poor outcome in children and adults. Overexpression of CRLF2 results in activation of JAK-STAT and parallel signaling pathways in experimental models, but existing small molecule inhibitors of Janus kinases show variable and limited efficacy. Here we evaluated the efficacy of proteolysis-targeting chimeras (PROTACs) directed against Janus kinases. Read More

Division of Pediatric Hematology/Oncology, University of Rochester, Rochester, NY, U.S.A.

Background/aim: This study explored the mechanisms of the allogeneic graft versus leukemia effect in acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL) cells by examining whether they change gene expression in the post-transplant environment containing cytokines and the immunosuppressant cyclosporine, and if such changes affect ALL cell survival.

Materials And Methods: RNASeq was used to assess leukemia global gene expression and flow cytometry to measure ALL survival in the presence of T cells, NK cells, cytokines, and cyclosporine.

LYNX (LYmphoid NeXt-generation sequencing) panel: a comprehensive capture-based sequencing tool for the analysis of prognostic and predictive markers in lymphoid malignancies.

J Mol Diagn 2021 May 31. Epub 2021 May 31.

Department of Internal Medicine - Hematology and Oncology, Faculty of Medicine, Masaryk University and University Hospital Brno, Czech Republic; Center of Molecular Medicine, CEITEC - Central European Institute of Technology, Masaryk University, Brno, Czech Republic; Department of Medical Genetics and Genomics, Faculty of Medicine, Masaryk University and University Hospital Brno, Czech Republic. Electronic address:

B-cell neoplasms represent a clinically heterogeneous group of hematological malignancies with considerably diverse genomic architecture recently endorsed by next-generation sequencing (NGS) studies. Since multiple genetic defects have potential or confirmed clinical impact, a tendency toward more comprehensive testing of diagnostic, prognostic, and predictive markers is desired. In this study, we introduce the design, validation, and implementation of an integrative custom-designed capture-based NGS panel titled LYNX (LYmphoid NeXt-generation sequencing) for the analysis of standard and novel molecular markers in the most common lymphoid malignancies (chronic lymphocytic leukemia, acute lymphoblastic leukemia, diffuse large B-cell lymphoma, follicular lymphoma, mantle cell lymphoma).

Hematopoietic cell transplantation for acute lymphoblastic leukemia: review of current indications and outcomes.

Leuk Lymphoma 2021 Jun 3:1-14. Epub 2021 Jun 3.

Department of Stem Cell Transplantation and Cellular Therapy, The University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center, Houston, TX, USA.

The treatment landscape for patients with acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL) is changing. Continued investigation into the biology of ALL, and broader use and more precise methods of measuring residual disease allow for improved risk stratification of patients and identification of the subset of patients at greatest risk of disease relapse and who may benefit from hematopoietic cell transplantation (HCT) in first complete remission. Further, recent advances in HCT preparative regimens, donor selection, graft manipulation, and graft-versus-host disease prophylaxis and treatment have resulted in fewer transplant-related morbidities and mortality and better survival outcomes.

The genomic landscape of teenage and young adult T-cell acute lymphoblastic leukemia.

Cancer Med 2021 Jun 2. Epub 2021 Jun 2.

Centre for Evolution and Cancer, The Institute of Cancer Research, London, UK.

Background: Treatment on risk adapted intensive pediatric protocols has improved outcome for teenagers and young adults (TYA) with T-cell acute lymphoblastic leukemia (T-ALL). Understanding the biology of disease in this age group and the genetic basis of relapse is a key goal as patients with relapsed/refractory disease have poor outcomes with conventional chemotherapy and novel molecular targets are required. This study examines the question of whether TYA T-ALL has a specific biological-molecular profile distinct from pediatric or adult T-ALL. Read More
