Patients with relapsed/refractory B-cell non-Hodgkin lymphoma who experienced grade 3 or higher immune effector cell–associated neurotoxicity syndrome who were treated with early intrathecal therapy experienced improved survival.
The use of axicabtagene ciloleucel for relapse/refractory indolent non-Hodgkin lymphoma continued the duration of response during the follow-up of the phase 2 ZUMA-5 trial.
Younger survivors of B-cell non-Hodgkin lymphoma appeared to have an increased risk of adverse health outcomes 5 or more years after diagnosis compared with older survivors.
Patients with relapsed or refractory aggressive B-cell non-Hodgkin lymphoma did not benefit in terms of event-free survival when treated with the CAR T-cell therapy tisagenlecleucel vs standard-of-care chemotherapy and transplant.
As treatment for T-cell non-Hodgkin lymphomas continues to expand, disparities and inequities continue to grow for those within certain racial groups and of a certain socioeconomic status.
A nulliparous woman, age 25 years, had received a diagnosis of non-Hodgkin lymphoma and now presented with stage IIA diffuse large B-cell lymphoma. Due to potential risks of chemotherapy-induced gonadotoxicity and subsequent iatrogenic premature ovarian failure and fertility loss, the patient was referred to the reproductive medicine department for fertility preservation counseling and further management.
CAR T-cell therapy with axicabtagene ciloleucel (axi-cel; Yescarta) showed promise in patients with high-risk relapsed/refractory indolent non-Hodgkin lymphoma.
CAR066, showed a favorable safety profile and promising efficacy in the treatment of adult patients with relapsed/refractory B-cell non-Hodgkin lymphoma who failed prior CD19 CAR T-cell therapy.
A novel CD20xCD3 bispecific antibody, odronextamab, continues to show intriguing antitumor activity and an acceptable safety profile in patients with relapsed/refractory B-cell non-Hodgkin lymphoma, including those who have previously received chimeric antigen receptor T-cell therapy.
This phase 1 study found that vorinostat (Zolinza) in combination with either sirolimus (Rapamune) or everolimus (Afinitor) demonstrated clinical efficacy in patients with relapsed and/or refractory Hodgkin lymphoma and warrants further investigation.
