Leukemia & Lymphoma

Treatment of CML with various tyrosine kinase inhibitors can induce changes in glomerular filtration rate over time and have other kidney-related effects.

Long-term follow-up of a phase II study shows that nilotinib is highly effective in treating chronic phase CML as a first-line therapy, though with relatively common cardiovascular toxicity associated with treatment.

Lymphoma survivors who underwent autologous HSCT may be at greater long-term risk for heart failure and left ventricular systolic dysfunction than previously thought.

Patients with CML undergoing treatment with dasatinib had a narrower spectrum of mutations in BCR-ABL1 compared to those treated with imatinib.

Results of a large trial have indicated that the use of interim PET/CT imaging has limited prognostic value to DLBCL patients being treated with R-CHOP-14.

Advanced Hodgkin lymphoma patients who discontinue their treatment with bleomycin and vincristine as part of a BEACOPP regimen did not experience an effect on survival.

Beliefs regarding medication for chronic myeloid leukemia (CML) are strongly associated with suboptimal treatment adherence, according to a new study.
