Results of a single-center analysis indicated that patients aged 80 or older with DLBCL had superior outcomes with anthracycline-based therapies.

Combination treatment with obinutuzumab plus bendamustine followed by obinutuzumab maintenance significantly delayed disease progression in patients with indolent non-Hodgkin lymphoma refractory to rituximab.

Maintenance therapy with TKIs following allogeneic HSCT is feasible and may improve outcomes in patients with high-risk Philadelphia chromosome–positive leukemia.

Treatment with the anti–PD-1 antibody pembrolizumab was safe and active in a small study of patients with relapsed or refractory classical Hodgkin lymphoma whose disease progressed after treatment with brentuximab vedotin.

Dietary, pet, and social contact restrictions did not have any effect on infectious complications in children undergoing intensive treatment of acute myeloid leukemia.
