Researchers have developed a model that has prognostic value in predicting favorable or unfavorable responses to immunomodulatory derivatives in patients with multiple myeloma.
About one in every 25 patients with chronic lymphocytic leukemia had abnormal liver function tests, and one in four developed liver dysfunction within 10 years, according to the results of a retrospective study.
Survival of patients with myelofibrosis who undergo splenectomy is adversely affected by older age, the need for transfusion, and leukocyte and circulating blast cell counts, according to a new analysis.
Non-Hodgkin lymphoma patients who have preexisting cardiovascular risk factors are at an increased risk of heart failure and are often prescribed anthracyclines less frequently, according to a large population-based study.
The FDA has released a statement regarding safety concerns that led to a clinical hold on three trials of pembrolizumab in combination with pomalidomide or lenalidomide for patients with multiple myeloma, and the active role of the FDA in protecting patient safety.
In this interview we discuss the link between breast implants and anaplastic large-cell lymphoma, a rare type of T-cell lymphoma.
Pediatric patients with ALK-positive anaplastic large cell lymphomas and inflammatory myofibroblastic tumors had strong responses to treatment with crizotinib.
Prolonged use of bortezomib after treatment with combined bortezomib plus dexamethasone did not result in any significant benefit for patients with relapsed/refractory multiple myeloma compared with bortezomib plus dexamethasone alone, but this less dose-intensive approach could be a feasible option for patients who cannot tolerate the standard regimen.
Patients with newly diagnosed multiple myeloma treated with lenalidomide maintenance therapy after undergoing autologous stem-cell transplantation had significantly improved overall survival compared with observation or placebo.
Pediatric solid organ transplant recipients account for about 3% of diagnosed pediatric non-Hodgkin lymphoma cases in the United States.
