Researchers hypothesized that overlapping characteristics between autoimmune disease and NHL could be the result of similar genetic components.
Although statistically insignificant, results of a randomized study determined the potential for nurse-led interventions as adjunct posttreatment care for lymphoma survivors.
Antibiotic treatment with carbapenem for S. aureus infection was efficacious in patients with cutaneous T-cell lymphomas.
A retrospective analysis suggests that monitoring MRD in early-stage follicular lymphoma may predict prognosis and guide rituximab therapy.
Tisagenlecleucel appeared to be safe and showed clinical activity in a small group of patients with secondary CNS lymphoma.
Results from a phase 2 trial suggest that adding lenalidomide to follicular lymphoma treatment with rituximab may be efficacious.
Researchers reported follow-up data for patients with advanced-stage Hodgkin lymphoma evaluated for response with positron emission tomography scanning.
Half of patients required no “antilymphoma treatment beyond 10 years.”
Survivors of NHL should be offered genetic counseling.
Patients with concurrent diffuse large B-cell lymphoma (DLBCL) and follicular lymphoma were more likely to have germinal center B-cell-like DLBCL.
A classic Hodgkin lymphoma patient had a false-positive PET, leading to unneeded workup.
Healthcare providers are being advised to report all cases of BIA-ALCL in individuals with breast implants to the FDA’s MedWatch Reporting program.
A retrospective study sought to determine the risk of solid-tumor second malignancy associated with an infectious etiology for patients with certain lymphomas or leukemias.
Patients with lymphoma or myeloma were assessed prior to and 1 month after initiating chemotherapy for depressive symptoms.
Researchers evaluated whether time to diagnosis of diffuse large B-cell lymphoma was associated with prognosis and survival.
Another study showed that surveillance imaging for patients with follicular lymphoma did not improve survival outcomes after first relapse.
A case report suggests that endoscopic techniques may have utility in the diagnosis of the gastric involvement that can occur in follicular lymphoma.
HIV-induced regulatory B cells may inhibit T cell function through multiple mechanisms, potentially driving lymphomagenesis.
The investigational treatment was associated with a high rate of neurotoxicity.
Risk for malignancy was increased in patients who underwent 2 or 3 lines of treatment compared with patients who only underwent 1 line of treatment.
