  • [Title] FDG-PET in the detection of bone marrow disease in Hodgkin's disease and aggressive non-Hodgkin's lymphoma and its impact on clinical management.
  • AIM: Identification of bone marrow disease (BMD) is a crucial step in the diagnostic work-up of patients with lymphoma.
  • In lymphoma staging, bone marrow biopsy (BMb) is considered as the gold standard, despite its limitations.
  • The aim of this study was to compare the usefulness of 2-deoxy-2-[(18)F]fluoro-D-glucose positron emission tomography (FDG-PET) vs BMb in the detection of BMD in patients with Hodgkin's disease (HL) or aggressive non-Hodgkin's lymphoma (NHL) and its impact on therapy.
  • METHODS: A total of 194 consecutive patients with malignant lymphoma were referred for staging.
  • The clinical stage was defined according to the Ann Arbor classification by means of contrast enhanced computed tomography (CT), BMb and whole body FDG-PET/CT scan.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • [Title] Salvage abdominal irradiation for refractory non-Hodgkin's lymphoma.
  • BACKGROUND: Abdominal irradiation, as a part of treatment, is often ignored in the management of refractory non-Hodgkin's lymphoma (NHL).
  • MATERIALS AND METHODS: 27 patients with intraabdominal lymphoma underwent salvage irradiation between 1982 and 2001.
  • Thirteen patients, six with follicular and seven with aggressive tumors, had refractory relapsed tumors after achieving one or more complete remissions.
  • Survival rates were significantly better for patients with refractory relapse compared to those with primary refractory lymphoma (P < 0.01).
  • There was no significant difference in terms of response, recurrence, or survival rates between follicular and aggressive types.
  • Out-of-field recurrence occurred more frequently in initial stage III and IV disease.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • [Title] Non-Hodgkin's lymphomas of the colon.
  • BACKGROUND: Non-Hodgkin's lymphoma of the colon is a rare and consequently poorly studied extranodal lymphoma.
  • Aggressive histology was found in 12 patients: diffuse large B cell lymphoma in 11 and peripheral T cell lymphoma in 1.
  • Three patients had mantle cell lymphoma and two had indolent lymphomas: mucosa-associated lymphoid tissue (n=l) and small lymphocytic (n=l).
  • Disease stage influenced prognosis; six of seven patients with limited-stage DLBCL who received aggressive chemotherapy achieved complete remission and enjoyed prolonged survival, whereas patients with aggressive disseminated disease had resistant disease and poor survival (median 8 months).
  • CONCLUSIONS: Most colonic lymphomas are aggressive B cell lymphomas.
  • Those with limited-stage disease when treated with aggressive chemotherapy may enjoy prolonged survival.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • [Title] Non-Hodgkin's lymphoma of the stomach: treatment outcomes for 57 patients over a 20-year period.
  • BACKGROUND: Gastric non-Hodgkin's lymphoma (NHL) is a rare subtype of malignancy, for which no consensus exists about treatment.
  • METHODS: Clinical stages were classified according to the Ann Arbor staging system: 29 patients were stage 1, 17 stage II, two stage III, and nine stage IV.
  • The 46 stage I/II patients received aggressive, multimodal therapy: 24 of these (group A) were treated with surgery-based management, which included surgery alone (n = 6), surgery + chemotherapy (CT; n = 14), surgery + radiotherapy (RT; n = 2), and surgery + CT + RT (n = 2); 22 patients (group B) did not receive surgery, but received CT alone (n = 11), CT + RT (n = 5), or, in patients with low-grade mucosa-associated lymphoid tissue (MALT) lymphoma, an oral anti-Helicobacter pylori regimen (n = 6).
  • The 11 stage III/IV patients received CT and/or RT with regimens similar to those for stage I/III patients.
  • The 5-year survival rates for stage 1, II and III/IV patients were 57.2%, 47% and 0%, respectively (p < 0.005).
  • Of the 22 non-surgical patients (group B) who received CT, alone or combined with RT, 14 remained disease-free after a median follow-up of 40 months (range, 4-189 months); 1 patient died because of massive gastric hemorrhage after CT.
  • All stage III and IV patients died after a median survival of 4 months (range, 1-8 months).
  • CONCLUSION: Clinical stage is the most important factor predicting the long-term survival of patients with gastric NHL.
  • In early-stage gastric NHL, non-surgical treatment seems able to achieve the aims of improved long-term survival and, in some instances, cure.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • [Title] Transformation to aggressive lymphoma in nodular lymphocyte-predominant Hodgkin's lymphoma.
  • PURPOSE Prior observations suggest a higher risk of transformation of nodular lymphocyte-predominant Hodgkin's lymphoma (NLPHL) to aggressive lymphoma, most commonly diffuse large B-cell lymphoma (DLBCL), than in classical Hodgkin's lymphoma.
  • Results Patients with NLPHL had the following characteristics at diagnosis: median age of 37 years, 73% male, and 68% stage I or II disease.
  • With a median follow-up time for living patients of 6.5 years (range, 2.5 to 33 years), 13 patients (14%) experienced transformation to aggressive lymphoma (median time to transformation, 8.1 years; range, 0.35 to 20.3 years).
  • The actuarial risk of transformation to aggressive lymphoma was 7% and 30% at 10 and 20 years, respectively.
  • The 10-year progression-free and overall survival rates in patients with transformed lymphoma were 52% and 62%, respectively.

  • BACKGROUND: There is not univocal concordance for using high-dose sequential therapy (HDS) as first-line treatment for aggressive non-Hodgkin's lymphoma (NHL).
  • We designed this study to evaluate the usefulness of HDS followed by high-dose therapy (HDT) with autologous stem cell transplantation as front-line treatment in different subsets of aggressive NHL.
  • PATIENTS AND METHODS: Among 223 patients aged 15-60 years with aggressive, advanced stage NHL, 106 patients were randomized to VACOP-B (etoposide, doxorubicin, cyclophosphamide, vincristine, prednisone, bleomycin) for 12 weeks (plus HDS/HDT in case of persistent disease) (arm A), and 117 patients to VACOP-B for 8 weeks plus upfront HDS/HDT (arm B).
  • CONCLUSIONS: Aggressive NHL patients do not benefit from upfront HDS/HDT.

  • PATIENTS AND METHODS: Cell-free DNA levels in the plasma samples of 142 patients with lymphomas [45 with Hodgkin's lymphoma (HL), 63 with diffuse large B-cell non-Hodgkin's lymphoma (DLBCL), 24 with follicular, and 10 with mantle cell non-Hodgkin's lymphoma (NHL)] at diagnosis and of 41 healthy individuals were determined using a quantitative PCR for the beta-globin gene.
  • Increased levels of plasma DNA were associated with advanced stage disease, presence of B-symptoms, elevated lactate dehydrogenase levels, and age >60 years (P = 0.009; <0.0001; <0.0001; 0.04, respectively).
  • CONCLUSION: Quantification of circulating DNA by real-time PCR at diagnosis can identify patients with elevated levels that are associated with disease characteristics indicating aggressive disease and poor prognosis.

  • The aim of this study was to determine the prevalence of IgG, IgM, and IgA anticardiolipin antibodies (aCL) and anti-beta-2 glycoprotein I antibodies (anti-beta2-GPI) in patients with non-Hodgkin's lymphoma (NHL), and to investigate their clinical and prognostic significance.
  • There was no significant correlation between elevated APA levels and patient's age or sex, disease stage or grade, bone marrow involvement, B symptoms, serum lactate dehydrogenase levels, serum beta2 microglobulin levels, International Prognostic Index (IPI) score, performance status, type of treatment, or response to treatment.
  • Their level may serve as an independent prognostic variable in aggressive NHL.

  • [Title] Limited usefulness of CA125 measurement in the management of Hodgkin's and non-Hodgkin's lymphoma.
  • BACKGROUND: Several papers have reported an association of high CA125 serum levels with advanced non-Hodgkin's lymphoma (NHL) as well as a relationship between high CA125 values and poor outcome.
  • PATIENTS AND METHODS: Ninety-nine patients with NHL or Hodgkin's disease (HD) underwent serum CA125 assessment at diagnosis.
  • Gender, age, presence of B symptoms, performance status (PS), histology, sites of tumor involvement, presence of effusion, clinical stage, age-adjusted International Prognostic Index, C-reactive protein (CRP), Hb, lactate deshydrogenase (LDH) and beta2-microglobulin were evaluated for their association with serum CA125 levels.
  • RESULTS: CA125 serum levels were elevated in 34% of the patients, including 19% of patients with aggressive NHL, 45% of patients with indolent NHL, and 29% of patients with HD.
  • Univariate analyses showed that CA125 levels correlated with poor PS, the presence of B symptoms, advanced clinical stage, abdominal, bone marrow or mediastinal involvement, presence of effusions, high aaIPI, low Hb levels and high CRP, LDH or beta2-microglobulin levels.
  • In univariate analyses, OS and PFS were affected by age (PFS only), poor PS, B symptoms, advanced clinical stage, bone marrow or abdominal involvement (PFS only), high aaIPI, low Hb, high CRP or beta2-microglobulin levels.
  • CONCLUSION: While CA125 serum level correlates significantly with a number of features associated with more aggressive disease, it does not enhance the performance of standard prognostic markers in the management of patients with NHL or HD.

  • BACKGROUND: The prognosis of patients with aggressive non-Hodgkin's lymphoma (NHL) relapsing or progressing after front-line therapy remains poor.
  • RESULTS: Fourteen patients (median age 63 years, range 37-78 years) with relapsed (n = 9) or primary progressive (n = 5) aggressive (diffuse large cell, mantle cell, follicular G3), advanced (stage IV 71%), poor risk (IPI 3-5 50%) NHL were accrued in this pilot study.
  • CONCLUSIONS: Based on the results of this pilot study, we conclude that the R-GIFOX regimen is feasible, tolerable, effective and able to mobilize peripheral stem cells in patients with relapsed and refractory aggressive NHL.

  • [Title] Advanced stage is the most important prognostic factor for survival in patients with systemic acquired immunodeficiency syndrome-related non-Hodgkin's Lymphoma treated with CHOP and highly active antiretroviral therapy.
  • In the era of highly active antiretroviral therapy (HAART), the prognosis for acquired immunodeficiency syndrome-related lymphomas (ARL) seems to be similar to that for aggressive B-cell lymphomas in human immunodeficiency virus (HIV)-negative patients.
  • We evaluated the prognostic factors for response and survival in a series of HIV-infected patients with systemic non-Hodgkin's lymphoma (NHL) in the HAART era.
  • A disease stage of III to IV was the only parameter with prognostic influence on DFS.
  • The factors influencing OS were an International Prognostic Index >2, an Eastern Cooperative Ecology Group (ECOG) score >2, and a disease stage of III to IV.
  • Patients with an advanced stage had a lower OS probability in a multivariate analysis (odds ratio, 4.24; 95% CI, 1.24- 14.57).
  • Advanced stage was the main prognostic factor predicting survival in ARL treated with CHOP and HAART.

  • PURPOSE: Timing, appropriate amount, and composition of treatment before high-dose therapy and autologous stem-cell transplantation (ASCT) in patients with poor-risk, aggressive non-Hodgkin's lymphoma (NHL) are still unknown.
  • We conducted two consecutive multicenter phase II trials with up-front, high-dose, sequential chemotherapy and ASCT in poor-risk, aggressive NHL.
  • PATIENTS AND METHODS: Between 1994 and 2001, 147 newly diagnosed, poor-risk, aggressive NHL patients, age < or = 65 years with stage III to IV and lactate dehydrogenase (LDH) more than 1.5x upper limit of normal (ULN), entered the Dutch-Belgian Hemato-Oncology Cooperative Group (HOVON) -27 and HOVON-40 trials.
  • RESULTS: Patient characteristics in both trials were comparable: 80% had diffuse large B-cell lymphoma, 77% had stage IV disease, and median LDH levels were 3.1x ULN.
  • CONCLUSION: In patients with poor-risk, aggressive NHL, addition of intensified CHOP before up-front, high-dose, sequential therapy and ASCT significantly improved the duration of response and survival.

  • [Title] Phase II study of rituximab plus three cycles of CHOP and involved-field radiotherapy for patients with limited-stage aggressive B-cell lymphoma: Southwest Oncology Group study 0014.
  • PURPOSE: To evaluate the effect of rituximab in limited-stage diffuse large B-cell lymphoma (DLBCL), we conducted a multicenter phase II trial combining rituximab with three cycles of CHOP (cyclophosphamide, doxorubicin, vincristine, and prednisone; R-CHOP) followed by involved-field radiation therapy (IFRT).
  • PATIENTS AND METHODS: Southwest Oncology Group (SWOG) study S0014 enrolled patients with newly diagnosed, aggressive, CD20-expressing non-Hodgkin's lymphoma (NHL).
  • Patients had limited-stage disease and at least one adverse risk factor as defined by the stage-modified International Prognostic Index (nonbulky stage II disease, age > 60 years, WHO performance status of 2, or elevated serum lactate dehydrogenase).
  • RESULTS: Sixty patients with aggressive NHL were eligible.
  • CONCLUSION: In limited-stage DLBCL, the addition of rituximab to three cycles of CHOP plus IFRT met prespecified study criteria of efficacy, with 2-year PFS of at least 84%, meriting further investigation.
  • We hypothesize that such a pattern may be the result of biologic differences between limited- and advanced-stage lymphoma.

  • BACKGROUND: Data assessing the role of positron emission tomography (PET)/computed tomography (CT) imaging in lymphoma staging is still being accumulated and current staging is based primarily on CT.
  • This study aims to compare the value of PET/CT over conventional CT and bone marrow biopsy (BMB) in the initial evaluation of patients with lymphoma.
  • RESULTS: Among the 122 patients, 101 had non-Hodgkin's lymphoma (NHL) and 21 had Hodgkin's lymphoma (HL).
  • Compared with conventional CT, PET/CT upstaged 21 (17%) cases [B-cell non-Hodgkin's lymphoma (B-NHL), 12; T-cell non-Hodgkin's lymphoma (T-NHL), 3; HL, 6].
  • A maximum FDG uptake of >10 standardized uptake value (SUV) seems to significantly correlate with an aggressive B-cell lineage (odds ratio 2.47, 95% confidence interval 2.23-2.70).
  • Of note, all 13 with early-stage HL had negative PET/CT scan and BMB.
  • In patients with aggressive B-NHL, BMB and PET/CT agreed in 58 patients (92%) and disagreed in five (8%), while the corresponding rates in indolent B-cell lymphoma were 14 (67%) and seven patients (33%), respectively.
  • SUV >10 may predict for an aggressive histology.
  • This is particularly true of early-stage HL, suggesting that BMB may be safely omitted in this group.

  • Lymphomas highly expressing CD were associated with a worse stage (III-IV) at diagnosis (31/34 cases; p=0.002) and with a poor clinical outcome (i.e., partial remission and death; 28/34 cases; p=0.03).
  • In the subgroup of aggressive/high grade of malignancy lymphomas (i.e., DLBCL, FL IIIB and PTCL), the Kaplan-Meier curve revealed a very low cumulative overall survival probability (approximately 20% at 5 year) for patients bearing a NHL with > 40% CD-positive cells compared to that of patients bearing a NHL with < 20% CD-positive cells ( approximately 70% at 5 year).
  • In Cox multivariate analysis CD failed to be a prognosticator independent of pathologic stage, though the hazard ratio confirmed the association of low expression with a better survival probability.

  • [Title] Secondary central nervous system lymphoma.
  • This review summarizes current knowledge of secondary central nervous system lymphoma (SCNSL) in adults.
  • We define SCNSL as CNS involvement not obvious at the initiation of treatment for systemic lymphoma.
  • Elevated serum lactate dehydrogenase levels, the involvement of more than one extranodal site, an advanced stage, a high age-adjusted International Prognostic Index score at presentation, and special anatomic sites of involvement such as the testis are important risk factors for SCNSL.
  • The value of CNS prophylaxis according to histologic subtype, status of systemic lymphoma, and other risk factors is summarized.
  • Although prophylaxis is fundamental for treating highly aggressive non-Hodgkin's lymphoma (NHL), it is beginning to be appreciated for the treatment of aggressive NHL.
  • CNS involvement is almost always fatal; however, a CNS-active strategy could complement other approaches that have led to recent improvements in the prognosis for lymphoma.

  • [Title] Diagnostic role of 18F-FDG PET in gastric MALT lymphoma.
  • BACKGROUND: The aim of the study was to evaluate the usefulness of 18F-FDG-PET in patients with gastric lymphoma, in particular those affected by mucosa-associated lymphoid tissue (MALT) type and aggressive gastric non-Hodgkin's lymphoma (NHL).
  • In 9/15 patients the subsequent histological evaluation was consistent with a gastric MALT lymphoma, while aggressive gastric NHL was diagnosed in the other 6/15.
  • PET scan was carried out in patients with known active disease in order to stage or re-stage disease prior to treatment or in patients in complete clinical remission to monitor disease during follow up.
  • RESULTS: Overall 18F-FDG-PET was true positive in all cases of gastric MALT and non-MALT aggressive NHL with known active disease, while no pathological 18F-FDG uptake was evident in the subjects who were in complete clinical remission.
  • The degree of 18F-FDG uptake (mean SUVmax values) in MALT lymphoma was much less intense in comparison to aggressive gastric NHL, suggesting a prognostic role of SUV calculation in gastric lymphomas.
  • CONCLUSION: Our data demonstrate the significant accuracy of 18F-FDG-PET in detecting active disease in gastric lymphoma of both MALT and non-MALT NHL type.
  • A higher SUV value appears to be related to a more aggressive disease.

  • [Title] Characterization and clinical relevance of circulating and biopsy-derived endothelial progenitor cells in lymphoma patients.
  • We, therefore, investigated the presence, differentiation potential and molecular characteristics of EPC in lymphoma patients.
  • DESIGN AND METHODS: EPC (CD133+CD34+KDR+ cells) were detected in peripheral blood (PB) and lymph node (LN) biopsy samples of 70 lymphoma patients by reverse transcription-polymerase chain reaction (RT-PCR) and flow cytometry.
  • Lymphoma patients were classified according to disease aggressiveness (indolent vs aggressive lymphoma) and their data (tumor angiogenesis, tumor stage and clinical treatment) were related to the presence or absence of EPC in the circulation or in tumor samples.
  • RESULTS: Circulating EPC (CEPC) were more frequent in patients than in healthy controls and more frequent in younger patients than in older patients and in those with aggressive lymphomas.
  • The levels of CEPC decreased in patients with complete response to treatment, but were sustained or increased in the non- or partial- responders to lymphoma therapy.
  • Gene expression profiling of isolated LN-EPC revealed the expression of pro-angiogenic and tumor growth factors that may influence lymphoma growth.
  • INTERPRETATION AND CONCLUSIONS: EPC are present in the circulation and in tumor samples from patients with non-Hodgkin's lymphoma.
  • Since there are relationships between EPC and various characteristics of lymphoma, our research has demonstrated the clinical and biological relevance of studying CEPC and LN-EPC in lymphoma patients.

  • [Title] Treatment results of tonsillar lymphoma: a 10-year experience.
  • Primary extranodal non-Hodgkin's lymphomas of the head and neck account for 10-20% of all non-Hodgkin's lymphomas.
  • Primary tonsillar lymphoma accounts for less than 1% of head and neck malignancies, although the tonsil is the most common primary extranodal site of head and neck non-Hodgkin's lymphomas.
  • In this study we analyzed our cases of tonsillar lymphoma treated in our institution during the last 10 years to compare the finding of this study with those of previous studies.
  • We reviewed the cases of tonsillar lymphoma treated in the Radiation Oncology Department of Shiraz University from 1992 to 2002.
  • Between 1992 and 2002, 19 patients with stage IE (10), IIE (7), and IIIE (2) disease were treated.
  • The vast majority of patients presented in early stages with aggressive histology.
  • A late fatal side effect was observed in one patient who developed radiation-induced sarcoma 7 years after initial diagnosis and died 8 months later without evidence of recurrent lymphoma.
  • Age, sex, stage, bulk of disease, performance status, number of chemotherapy cycles, number of involved sites, histologic subtypes, and radiation dose were analyzed as prognostically significant for disease-specific survival in our cases.
  • Combined chemotherapy and radiation therapy is safe, highly effective, and probably curative for most patients with primary tonsillar lymphoma.

  • [Title] [Efficacy of modified B-NHL-BFM-90 protocol on Burkitt's lymphoma in Chinese children and adolescents].
  • BACKGROUND & OBJECTIVE: Burkitt's lymphoma is an aggressive non-Hodgkin's lymphoma (NHL) and often involves bone marrow and central nerve system.
  • The efficacy of CHOP regimen on Burkitt's lymphoma is poor.
  • This study was to evaluate the efficacy of modified B-NHL-BFM-90 protocol on Burkitt's lymphoma in children and adolescents, and observe the survival status.
  • 2006, 31 untreated Burkitt's lymphoma patients aged less than 20 were enrolled.
  • According to St Jude staging system, 1 (3.2%) was at stage I, 6 (19.4%) at stage II, 8 (25.8%) at stage III, 16 (51.6%) at stage IV; 24 (77.4%) were at stage III/IV.
  • According to clinical stage, lactate dehydrogenase (LDH) level and treatment response, these patients were divided into low, moderate and high risk groups.
  • At a median follow-up of 33 months (range, 3-98 months), the 3-year event-free survival (EFS) rate was 86.0% for all patients, with 100% for stage I/II patients and 82.1% for stage III/IV patients, 100% for low risk group, 92.0% for moderate risk group, and 70.0% for high risk group.
  • CONCLUSIONS: Modified B-NHL-BFM-90 protocol can improve the responses and survival of Burkitt's lymphoma in Chinese children and adolescents, with tolerable toxicity.

  • [Title] Gastric Burkitt lymphoma is a distinct subtype that has superior outcomes to other types of Burkitt lymphoma/leukemia.
  • Burkitt lymphoma/leukemia (BL) is a highly aggressive non-Hodgkin's lymphoma (NHL) often presenting in extranodal sites or as an acute leukemia.
  • Because of the shared molecular and genetic features, the World Health Organization classification of lymphoid diseases recognizes the lymphomatous and leukemic phases of BL as a single entity: a mature B cell neoplasm, subtype Burkitt lymphoma/Burkitt cell leukemia.
  • Stage 1 was found in five patients, stage 2 in five patients, and stage 4 in 11 patients.
  • These data show that a high proportion of patients with gastric BL have a localized disease that is limited to stage 1 and 2, and that these localized BLs have outstanding outcomes.

  • BACKGROUND: Mycosis fungoides during large cell transformation to lymphoma has a poor prognosis with mean survival of 36 months.
  • CASE REPORT: A 25-year-old man presenting eczema-like patches since childhood was treated by chemotherapy for multiple lymphadenopathies considered as Hodgkin's lymphoma.
  • Non-infiltrated patches showed small T-cell lymphoma with epidermotropism.
  • Non-transformed mycosis fungoides patches persisted but were controlled with topical mechlorethamine.
  • DISCUSSION: This was probably a case of juvenile mycosis fungoides diagnosed and transformed in adult age.
  • It highlights the value of this method in aggressive transformed mycosis fungoides, especially in patients ineligible for allograft.

  • Aggressive non-Hodgkin's lymphoma (NHL), including primary central nervous system (CNS) lymphoma, lymphoblastic lymphoma and non-endemic Burkitt's lymphoma have been recognized as AIDS-defining cancers in most developed countries.
  • Patients with a histological diagnosis of malignant chronic lymphoproliferative diseases {non-Hodgkin lymphoma (NHL), chronic lymphocytic leukaemia (CLL), Burkitt's lymphoma (BL) and Hodgkin lymphoma (HL)} at the Obafemi Awolowo University Teaching Hospitals' Complex, Ile-Ife from January 1993 to August 2008 were noted.
  • A total of 391 patients were histologically confirmed to have lymphoma {NHL-109, (27.9%); CLL-76, (19.4%); BL-178, (45.5%) and HL-28, (7.2%)} during the study period.
  • Patients with NHL presented at advanced stage of the disease (at least clinical stage IIIb), and all those with CLL presented at stage C of the International Working Party Classification.
  • However, it is interesting that no single case of AIDS-associated BL was seen, despite the fact that Burkitt's lymphoma is endemic in this part of the world.
  • All the patients presented at a very advanced stage of the disease with significantly shortened survival.

  • Due to the characteristics of FDG-PET as an imaging tool, FDG-PET is supposed to be superior to the conventional imaging such as CT for the accurate assessment of the treatment response in patients with malignant lymphoma.
  • Malignant lymphoma usually undergoes chemotherapy or chemoimmunotherapy as a treatment of stage III and IV patients.
  • Recent advancement in the therapy of malignant lymphoma enables optional treatment strategies such as radioimmunotherapy with 90Y-labeled anti-CD20 monoclonal antibody or oral fludalabine for indolent non-Hodgkin's lymphoma and high-dose chemotherapy with autologous stem cell transplantation for aggressive non-Hodgkin's lymphoma.
  • The purpose of the present study was to determine the clinical value of FDG-PET for the early assessment of therapeutic response of malignant lymphoma.
  • Twenty-six patients with malignant lymphoma were enrolled in the study.
  • The subject consists of 10 patients with follicular lymphoma, 9 diffuse large B-cell lymphoma, and others.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • OBJECTIVE: Previous studies have demonstrated the feasibility of targeting lymphoma lesions with somatostatin receptor binding agents, mainly with In-111-pentetreotide.
  • METHODS: One-hundred and six patients, 47 with Hodgkin's (HL) and 59 with various types of non-Hodgkin's lymphoma (NHL), were imaged with both Tc-99m depreotide and Ga-67 citrate.
  • The opposite was true in aggressive B-cell NHL.
  • However, there were notable exceptions in all lymphoma subtypes.
  • On the basis of depreotide findings, 32% of patients with early-stage HL were upstaged.
  • CONCLUSION: Except perhaps for early-stage HL, Tc-99m depreotide as a stand-alone imaging modality has limited value for the initial staging of lymphomas.
  • Post-therapy, however, depreotide scintigraphy seems useful in the evaluation of certain anatomic areas, particularly in non-aggressive lymphoma types.
  • If fluorodeoxyglucose positron emission tomography is not available or in case of certain indolent lymphoma types, Tc-99m depreotide may have a role as an adjunct to conventional imaging procedures.

  • Furthermore, in patients with severe disease or extra-articular symptoms, mortality is equal to that for patients with triple artery coronary artery disease or Stage IV Hodgkin's lymphoma.
  • Cord blood, because of its rich mix of fetal and adult hemoglobin, high platelet and white blood cell (WBC) counts, and a plasma filled with cytokine and growth factors, as well as its hypo antigenic nature and altered metabolic profile, has all the potential of a real and safe alternative to adult blood transfusion.
  • After collection, the blood was immediately transfused following the standard adult blood transfusion protocol.
  • The patients received two to six units of freshly collected placental umbilical cord blood without encountering any clinical, immunological or non-immunological reactions.

  • INTRODUCTION: Recently, in the diagnostics and treatment of Hodgkin's disease significant developments have occurred.
  • AIM: To summarize the clinical and histological data of patients with Hodgkin's disease, treated at the 3rd Department of Internal Medicine, University of Debrecen between 1995-2004.
  • RESULTS: The mean age of the 163 patients at the diagnosis was 36 years (14-75), with bimodal age distribution, the most frequent disease subtype was mixed-cell Hodgkin's disease (48.5%).
  • 41.1% of the patients was at early stage, 15.7% had the worst prognosis, while 28.8% had bulky tumor.
  • 10 patients with partial remission and 5 non-responders were continually treated.
  • During the follow-up 18 patients died, 11 due to the lymphoma progression, or as the result of treatment, 6 had secondary malignancies, 1 due to other reasons.
  • CONCLUSION: The treatment results of our Hodgkin's disease patients improved, additionally we showed that patients with early stage favourable disease the treatment toxicity should be reduced, while patients with advanced, unfavourable prognosis (10% of all patients) aggressive primary treatment should be used even with more severe side effects and complications.
