PURPOSE: Therapy-related myeloid neoplasm (t-MN) is a life-threatening complication of autologous peripheral blood stem cell transplantation (aPBSCT) for Hodgkin lymphoma (HL). Although previous studies have reported an association between clonal hematopoiesis (CH) in the infused PBSC product and subsequent post-aPBSCT risk of t-MN in patients with non-HL, information about patients with HL treated with aPBSCT is not available. METHODS: We constructed a retrospective cohort of 321 patients with HL transplanted at a median age of 34 years (range, 18-71)...

Recurrent abnormalities in immune surveillance-related genes affect the progression of diffuse large B-cell lymphoma (DLBCL) and modulate the response to therapeutic interventions. CD58 interacts with the CD2 receptor on T cells and natural killer (NK) cells and is recurrently mutated and deleted in DLBCL, suggesting it may play a role in regulating antitumor immunity. Herein, we comprehensively analyzed the genomic characteristics of CD58 through targeted next-generation sequencing, RNA-sequencing, whole-exome sequencing, and single-cell RNA-sequencing in patients with newly diagnosed DLBCL...

Diffuse large B-cell lymphoma (DLBCL) encompasses a diverse spectrum of aggressive B-cell lymphomas with remarkable genetic heterogeneity and myriad clinical presentations. Multiplatform genomic analyses of DLBCL have identified oncogenic drivers within genetic subtypes that allow for pathologic subclassification of tumors into discrete entities with shared immunophenotypic, genetic, and clinical features. Robust classification of lymphoid tumors establishes a foundation for precision medicine and enables the identification of novel therapeutic vulnerabilities within biologically homogeneous entities...

Axicabtagene ciloleucel (axi-cel) is an autologous anti-CD19 chimeric antigen receptor (CAR) T-cell therapy approved for treatment of relapsed/refractory (R/R) large B-cell lymphoma (LBCL). Despite extensive data supporting the use of axi-cel in patients with LBCL, outcomes stratified by race and ethnicity groups are limited. Here, we report clinical outcomes with axi-cel in patients with R/R LBCL by race and ethnicity in both real-world and clinical trial settings. In the real-world setting, 1290 patients with R/R LBCL who received axi-cel between 2017-2020 were identified from the Center for International Blood and Marrow Transplant Research database; 106 and 169 patients were included from the ZUMA-1 and ZUMA-7 clinical trials, respectively...

Herpesviruses have two distinct life cycle stages, latency and lytic replication. Epstein-Barr virus (EBV), a gamma-herpesvirus, establishes latency in vivo and in cultured cells. Cell lines harboring latent EBV can be induced into the lytic cycle by treatment with chemical inducing agents. In the Burkitt lymphoma cell line HH514-16 the viral lytic cycle is triggered by butyrate, a histone deacetylase (HDAC) inhibitor. Butyrate also alters expression of thousands of cellular genes. However, valproic acid (VPA), another HDAC inhibitor with global effects on cellular gene expression blocks EBV lytic gene expression in Burkitt lymphoma cell lines...

In this review we summarize the current evidence describing the management of patients with relapsed/refractory MCL and outline the various novel therapeutics that have been developed over the past two decades. We also describe how overall response rates, complete response rates, duration of responses, and life expectancy have dramatically increased with the introduction of novel therapies, particularly covalent Bruton Tyrosine Kinase inhibitors (BTKi) and chimeric antigen receptor T-cell (CAR-T) therapy. The most recent emerging options for patients with progressive disease following BTKi or CAR-T, including non-covalent BTKi, antibody-drug conjugates, Bcl-2 inhibitors, and bispecific antibodies, may further improve response rates and outcomes...

Diffuse large B-cell lymphoma (DLBCL), a cancer of B cells, has been one of the most challenging and complicated diseases because of its considerable variation in clinical behavior, response to therapy, and prognosis. Radiomic features from medical images, such as PET images, have become one of the most valuable features for disease classification or prognosis prediction using learning-based methods. In this paper, a new flexible ensemble deep learning model is proposed for the prognosis prediction of the DLBCL in 18 F-FDG PET images...

BACKGROUND: Hodgkin lymphoma (HL) occurs at young ages, with the highest incidence between 20 and 40 years. While cure rates have improved to 80%-90% over the past decades, survivors of HL are at substantial risk of late treatment-related complications, such as cardiovascular diseases, breast cancer, severe infections, and hypothyroidism. To reduce morbidity and mortality from late treatment effects, the Dutch Better care after lymphoma, Evaluation of long-term Treatment Effects and screening Recommendations (BETER) consortium developed a survivorship care program for 5-year survivors of HL that includes risk-based screening for and treatment of (risk factors for) late adverse events...

In the 21st century, there has been a dramatic shift in the diagnosis and management of non-small cell lung carcinoma (NSCLC), with an increasing use of minimally invasive tissue acquisition methods. Current treatments require morphologic subtyping and biomarker information in all cases. Determining such biomarkers is a continuously evolving field; current guidelines state that the determination of mutations on the Epidermal Growth Factor (EFGR), Kirsten Rat Sarcoma viral oncogene homolog (KRAS), Proto-oncogene B-Raf (BRAF), Human epidermal growth factor receptor 2 (HER2) and Anaplastic Lymphoma Kinase (ALK), genes as well as fusions on genes such as ROS Proto-Oncogene 1, Receptor Tyrosine Kinase (ROS1), MET proto-oncogene, receptor tyrosine kinase (MET), RET proto-oncogene (RET), and the Neurotrophic Tyrosine Receptor Kinase (NTRK) family is mandatory...

Blastoid mantle cell lymphoma (MCL) is an extremely rare neoplasm with a dismal prognosis. MCL with an initial presentation in the oral cavity has been rarely reported. This report describes a 75-year-old male who presented with an oropharyngeal mass causing dysphonia and intermittent hypoxia. A biopsy and immunophenotyping confirmed MCL, favoring the blastoid variant. Imaging showed a 4.2 cm left oropharyngeal polypoid mass with extensive lymphadenopathy. His prognosis was considered unfavorable with elevated Ki-67 index, blastoid morphology, and p53 positivity of malignant cells...
