Successful use of trametinib and dasatinib combined with chemotherapy in the treatment of Ph-positive B-cell acute lymphoblastic leukemia: A case report.

Medicine (Baltimore) 2021 Jun;100(25):e26440

Ningbo Women and Children's Hospital, Ningbo.

Rationale: Relapsed or refractory acute lymphoblastic leukemia poses a significant clinical challenge due to its poor prognosis, showing survival rates of less than a year even with the use of novel therapies. In this report, we describe the safe and effective use of trametinib combined with dasatinib in a patient with acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL). To the best of our knowledge, this is the first report on the successful use of 2 targeted drugs such as trametinib and dasatinib in a pediatric patient with Ph+ ALL and recurrent pancreatitis.

Role of standardized reporting and novel imaging markers in chronic pancreatitis.

Curr Opin Gastroenterol 2021 Jun 18. Epub 2021 Jun 18.

Department of Radiology, Indiana University School of Medicine, Indianapolis, Indiana Department of Radiology, University of Pittsburgh Medical Center, Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania Department of Radiology, Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center, Columbus, Ohio Lehman, Bucksot and Sherman Section of Pancreatobiliary Endoscopy, Indiana University School of Medicine, Indianapolis, Indiana, USA.

Purpose Of Review: This article reviews recent efforts about standardized imaging features and reporting of chronic pancreatitis and recently published or ongoing imaging studies, which aim to establish novel imaging biomarkers for detection of parenchymal changes seen in chronic pancreatitis.

Recent Findings: New novel MRI techniques are being developed to increase the diagnostic yield of chronic pancreatitis specifically in the early stage. T1 relaxation time, T1 signal intensity ratio and extracellular volume fraction offer potential advantages over conventional cross-sectional imaging, including simplicity of analysis and more objective interpretation of observations allowing population-based comparisons.
