A new study confirms that patients with primary cutaneous diffuse large B-cell lymphoma who have a MYD88 mutation have a shorter disease-specific survival.

Phase II study results show that a new combination of drugs known as R2CHOP had promising efficacy in the treatment of relapsed diffuse large B-cell lymphoma.

The addition of gemtuzumab-ozogamicin to standard chemo improved event-free survival in children and young adults with newly diagnosed acute myeloid leukemia.

Patients with pediatric BCR-ABL1-like acute lymphoblastic leukemia should be given risk-directed therapy based on minimal residual disease levels, according to a new study.

A combination of the CDK4 inhibitor palbociclib with ibrutinib in mantle cell lymphoma could potentially overcome the drug resistance that many patients face.

The FDA approved idelalisib (Zydelig) yesterday for the treatment of relapsed chronic lymphocytic leukemia (CLL), follicular B-cell non-Hodgkin lymphoma (FL), and small lymphocytic lymphoma (SLL).

Rapidly generated virus-specific T cells (VSTs) were safe and effective against five infections that commonly affect immunocompromised patients after marrow or stem cell transplantation, according to a new small study.
