Intensive investigation in management of Hodgkin's disease. (1/3116)

Ninety-eight patients with clinically localised Hodgkin's disease underwent laparotomy and splenectomy to determine the extent of microscopic spread. In 68 patients the procedure was carried out for untreated disease apparently confined above the diaphragm. Abdominal disease cannot be confidently excluded on the basis of non-invasive investigation at presentation. Clinical assessment of splenic disease was unreliable unless gross splenomegaly was present. Pedal lymphography was accurate in assessing para-aortic and iliac disease but of no value in assessing other intra-abdominal lymph node involvement, including that of the mesenteric lymph node. Trephine bone marrow biopsy findings were normal in all patients before surgery, and only one patient was found to have diseased bone marrow by Stryker-saw biopsy at operation. Liver disease was identified at operation in nine patients, some of whom were asymptomatic with clinically undetectable splenic and nodal disease. Detailed clinical staging failed to detect disease in one-third of patients who underwent laparotomy. These studies show that if radiotherapy is to remain the treatment of choice for disease truly localised to lymph nodes a detailed staging procedure, including laparotomy and splenectomy, remains essential. The value of this potentially curative treatment is considerably diminished in the patient who has been inadequately staged.  (+info)

Prednisone in MOPP chemotherapy for Hodgkin's disease. (2/3116)

High remission rates have been produced by MOPP (mustine, vincristine, procarbazine, and prednisone) chemotherapy in patients with advanced Hodgkin's disease, but the prednisone component has caused adverse effects in patients who have undergone radiotherapy. The remission rates and length of remission were reviewed in 211 patients with Hodgkin's disease who received chemotherapy either with or without prednisone. In contrast to the findings of a British study, there were no significant differences in remission rates or length of remission between patients who had received prednisone and patients who had not. There were differences between the British prospective study and this retrospective one, but it is difficult to know what accounted for the substantial differences in the findings.  (+info)

Clinical presentation, course, and prognostic factors in lymphocyte-predominant Hodgkin's disease and lymphocyte-rich classical Hodgkin's disease: report from the European Task Force on Lymphoma Project on Lymphocyte-Predominant Hodgkin's Disease. (3/3116)

PURPOSE: Recent studies have suggested that lymphocyte-predominant Hodgkin's disease (LPHD) is both clinically and pathologically distinct from other forms of Hodgkin's disease, including classical Hodgkin's disease (CHD). However, large-scale clinical studies were lacking. This multicenter, retrospective study investigated the clinical characteristics and course of LPHD patients and lymphocyte-rich classical Hodgkin's disease (LRCHD) patients classified according to morphologic and immunophenotypic criteria. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Clinical data and biopsy material of all available cases initially submitted as LPHD were collected from 17 European and American centers, stained, and reclassified by expert pathologists. RESULTS: The 426 assessable cases were reclassified as LPHD (51%), LRCHD (27%), CHD (5%), non-Hodgkin's lymphoma (3%), and reactive lesion (3%); 11% of cases were not assessable. Patients with LPHD and LRCHD were predominantly male, with early-stage disease and few risk factors. Patients with LRCHD were significantly older. Survival and failure-free survival rates with adequate therapy were similar for patients with LPHD and LRCHD, and were stage-dependent and not significantly better than stage-comparable results for CHD (German trial data). Twenty-seven percent of relapsing LPHD patients had multiple relapses, which is significantly more than the 5% of relapsing LRCHD patients who had multiple relapses. Lymphocyte-predominant Hodgkin's disease patients had significantly superior survival after relapse compared with LRCHD or CHD patients; however, this was partly due to the younger average age of LPHD patients. CONCLUSION: The two subgroups of LPHD and LRCHD bore a close clinical resemblance that was distinct from CHD; the course was similar to that of comparable nodular sclerosis and mixed cellularity patients. Thorough staging is necessary to detect advanced disease in LPHD and LRCHD patients. The question of how to treat such patients, either by reducing treatment intensity or following a "watch and wait" approach, remains unanswered.  (+info)

Autologous hematopoietic stem-cell transplantation for relapsed or refractory Hodgkin's disease in children and adolescents. (4/3116)

PURPOSE: To determine the treatment outcome and clinical factors that are of prognostic significance for children and adolescents with relapsed or refractory Hodgkin's disease (HD) who received treatment with high-dose chemotherapy and autologous hematopoietic stem-cell transplantation (HSCT). PATIENTS AND METHODS: Fifty-three consecutive children and adolescents 21 years of age or younger with relapsed or refractory HD underwent HSCT. RESULTS: At day 100 after transplantation, 29 patients (55%) were in a complete remission or maintained a continuous complete response, six (11%) had a partial response, and 11 (21%) failed to respond or had progressive disease. The failure-free survival (FFS) at 5 years was 31%, and overall survival was 43%. Twenty-one patients died of progressive HD, and nine died secondary to transplantation-related complications, including two secondary leukemias. Prognostic factors important for FFS were normal pretransplantation lactate dehydrogenase levels (5-year FFS = 42%), compared with patients with elevated LDH levels (5-year FFS = 0%) (P < .001), and disease sensitivity at the time of HSCT with FFS in untreated relapse, sensitive disease, and resistant disease 44%, 35%, and 9%, respectively (P = .06). There was no statistically significant difference in FFS or overall survival between age subgroups that were analyzed (< 13, 13 to 18, 19 to 21) or in comparison with an adult cohort. CONCLUSION: HSCT is an effective treatment modality that can result in long-term cures and should be considered for children and adolescents with relapsed HD.  (+info)

Reduced health-related quality of life among Hodgkin's disease survivors: a comparative study with general population norms. (5/3116)

BACKGROUND: Late complications after curative treatment of Hodgkin's disease are of special relevance because most of the cured are young adults. The aims of the present study were: (1) to compare health-related quality of life (HRQOL) in Hodgkin's disease (HD) survivors with normative data from the general Norwegian population and (2) to examine the relations between disease/treatment characteristics and HRQOL in the HD survivors. PATIENTS AND METHODS: 459 HD survivors aged 19-74 years (mean 44.0, SD 11.8) treated at the Norwegian Radium Hospital 1971-1991 were approached in 1994 and compared to norms from 2214 subjects approached in 1996. The norms are representative of the general Norwegian population. HRQOL was assessed by the Short Form 36 (SF-36), which measures HRQOL in eight separate scales (0 = worst health state, 100 = best health state). RESULTS: The HD survivors had lower scores than the normal controls on all scales after adjustment for age, gender and educational levels. Statistically significant differences (P < 0.01) were found in general health (10.4), physical functioning (6.1), role limitations (physical, 9.3), physical functioning (3.6) and in vitality (4.7). Patients with disease stage IB-IIB had the lowest scores on all scales. The differences in relation to stage/substage reached statistical significance (P < 0.01) in physical functioning and in role limitations (physical). Time since diagnosis, types of primary treatment or having relapsed were not associated with statistically significant differences in HRQOL. CONCLUSION: Long-term HD survivors have poorer HRQOL, primarily in physical health, than the general Norwegian population.  (+info)

Bone marrow scintigraphy using technetium-99m antigranulocyte antibody in malignant lymphomas. (6/3116)

BACKGROUND: The purpose of this study was to elucidate the clinical reliability of immunoscintigraphy (IS) to detect infiltration of the bone marrow in patients with malignant lymphoma. PATIENTS AND METHODS: Whole body IS was performed in 103 patients with Hodgkin's disease (HD) or non-Hodgkin's lymphoma (NHL) using Tc-99m labelled anti-NCA-95 which allows visualization of the granulopoietic bone marrow. Of these, 52% were studied prior to any therapy. Findings were compared to posterior iliac crest biopsy as well as MRI and/or follow-up examination. Criteria of marrow infiltration were a positive biopsy, positive follow-up, or positive results of MRI. RESULTS: Comparison of IS and biospy revealed concordant findings in 69 and discordant findings in 34 of 103 patients. Of the 34 patients with discordant results, IS showed lesions suspicious of bone marrow infiltration in 29 patients despite normal biopsy findings. When follow-up and additional examinations were taken into consideration, 10 patients remained with probably false positive and five with false negative IS findings. IS proved to be highly sensitive and specific in patients with HD (100% and 84%, respectively) and high-grade NHL (93% and 84%, respectively). Moderate sensitivity (60%) was found in low-grade NHL. This was possibly due to false negative IS in three to five patients with chemotherapy in contrast to one of five false negative results in patients without chemotherapy. CONCLUSION: Bone marrow scintigraphy using antigranulocyte antibodies is highly sensitive in HD and high-grade NHL. Positive findings in IS subsequent to a negative biopsy should be followed by guided re-biopsy or MRI.  (+info)

Autotransplants for Hodgkin's disease in patients never achieving remission: a report from the Autologous Blood and Marrow Transplant Registry. (7/3116)

PURPOSE: Hodgkin's disease patients who never achieve complete remission with conventional chemotherapy (i.e., those with primary induction failure) have a poor prognosis. Some subjects who receive high-dose therapy with autologous hematopoietic progenitor-cell infusion experience prolonged progression-free survival. PATIENTS AND METHODS: Detailed records from the Autologous Blood and Marrow Transplant Registry (ABMTR) on 122 Hodgkin's disease patients who failed to achieve complete remission after one or more conventional therapy regimens and subsequently received an autotransplant between 1989 and 1995 were reviewed. RESULTS: Median age was 27 years (range, 7 to 57 years). Median time from diagnosis to transplantation was 14 months (range, 5 to 38 months). Most patients received high-dose chemotherapy without radiation for pretransplantation conditioning (n = 107). The regimen most frequently used was cyclophosphamide, carmustine, and etoposide (n = 47). Fifteen patients received total-body irradiation (n = 15). The graft consisted of bone marrow (n = 86), blood stem cells (n = 25), or both (n = 11). The 100-day mortality was 12% (95% confidence interval, 7% to 19%). Sixty patients (50%) were considered to have achieved complete remission after autotransplantation; 37 of these had negative imaging studies, whereas scan abnormalities of unknown significance persisted in 23 patients. Twenty-seven patients (22%) had no response or progressive disease after transplantation. Probabilities of progression-free and overall survival at 3 years were 38% (95% confidence interval, 28% to 48%) and 50% (95% confidence interval, 39% to 60%), respectively. In multivariate analysis, "B" symptoms at diagnosis and poor performance score at transplantation were adverse prognostic factors for outcome. CONCLUSION: Autotransplants should be considered for patients with Hodgkin's disease who do not achieve complete remission with conventional therapy.  (+info)

Stimulation of autologous blood lymphocytes by malignant lymphoma cells and homogenates. (8/3116)

The blastogenic response to autologous blood lymphocytes to whole-cell suspensions and to homogenates obtained from malignant lymphoma tissue has been investigated. Spleens were obtained from patients in whom laparotomy was performed for staging of malignant lymphoma. Cell suspensions prepared from tumour nodules were treated with mitomycin C and allowed to react with separated autologous blood lymphocytes for 6 days. Lymphocyte stimulation was measured by liquid scintillation counting after exposure to 3H-TdR. Cultures were also prepared in which autologous lymphocytes were treated with spleen tumour homogenate. Control experiments used spleens from staging procedures in which no tumour deposits were present, and normal spleens removed incidentally during other operations. In the controls, the uptake of TdR was never more than twice that of unstimulated lymphocytes. Greater degrees of lymphocyte stimulation were seen in 6 out of 14 patients, using whole tumour cells, and in 7 out of 16 patients, using tumour homogenates. The results indicate an antigenic difference between tumour and host cells, and suggest that lymphocytes can react to a tumour-associated antigen.  (+info)

Its scarcity has made clinical trials difficult and there is no consensus on first-line treatment. We conducted a population-based study of all patients diagnosed with NLPHL in Sweden between 2000 and 2014 (N = 158; 41 women and 117 men), focusing on clinical features, therapy and overall survival. The median female and male age was 59 and 44 years, respectively (P = 0·002). In early-stage disease, there was little mortality and no survival differences between therapies. In patients with advanced-stage disease, mortality was relatively high in patients who did not receive first-line rituximab but absent in those who did (10-year survival, 55% vs. 100%; P = 0·033); there were no imbalances of prognostic factors between those two groups. In advanced stages, first-line rituximab use increased markedly between 2000-2004 and 2005-2014 (7% vs. ...

Nodular Lymphocyte-Predominant Hodgkin Lymphoma. Nodular lymphocyte-predominant Hodgkin lymphoma (NLPHL) accounts for about 5% of cases. The cancer cells in NLPHL are large cells called popcorn cells (because they look like popcorn), which are variants of Reed-Sternberg cells. You may also hear these cells called lymphocytic and histiocytic (L&H) cells. NLPHL usually starts in lymph nodes in the neck and under the arm. It can occur in people of any agge, and is more common in men than women. This type of Hodgkin lymphoma tends to grow more slowly and is treated differently from the classic types.. ...

Quick overview of NLPHL This section is an overview of the information on this page. There is more detail in the sections below. What is it? NLPHL is a rare, slow-growing type of lymphoma. It is a type of cancer where the abnormal cells are lymphocytes (a type of white blood cell).
Nodular lymphocyte predominant Hodgkins lymphoma (NLPHL) is an indolent CD20(+) form of lymphoma. Some people no longer classified it as a form of classic Hodgkins lymphoma (HL). This is because the Reed-Sternberg cell (RSC) variants (popcorn cells) that characterize this form of the disease invariably express B lymphocyte markers such as CD20 (thus making NLPHL an unusual form of B cell lymphoma), and that (unlike classic HL) NLPHL may progress to diffuse large B cell lymphoma. There are small but clear differences in prognosis between the various forms. Lymphocyte predominant HL is an uncommon subtype composed of vague nodules of numerous reactive lymphocytes admixed with large popcorn-shaped RSC. Unlike classic RSC, the non-classic popcorn-shaped RS cells of NLPHL are CD15 and CD30 negative while positive for the B cell marker CD20. The anti-CD20 monoclonal antibody Rituximab has been used in lymphocyte predominant Hodgkins lymphoma with encouraging results. BCL6 gene rearrangements have ...
Nodular lymphocyte-predominant Hodgkin lymphoma (NLPHL) is a rare lymphoma entity with an incidence of 0.1 to 0.2/100 000/y. Compared with the more common subtypes of classical Hodgkin lymphoma, NLPHL is characterized by distinct pathological and clinical features. Histologically, the disease-defining lymphocyte predominant cells consistently express CD20 but lack CD30. Clinically, NLPHL mostly has a rather indolent course, and patients usually are diagnosed in early stages. The prognosis of early-stage NLPHL is excellent, with progression-free survival and overall survival rates exceeding 90% after involved-field radiotherapy (IF-RT) alone (stage IA) or combined modality treatment consisting of a brief chemotherapy with 2 cycles of ABVD (doxorubicin, bleomycin, vinblastine, dacarbazine) chemotherapy followed by IF-RT (early stages other than stage IA ...
PURPOSE: Classic Hodgkin lymphoma is highly curable with contemporary therapy. Although the limited role of surveillance imaging to detect early relapse for patients in complete remission at the end of therapy is well established, there is a paucity of data regarding role of laboratory testing in this setting.. METHODS: Patients with newly diagnosed classic Hodgkin lymphoma uniformly treated with the Stanford V regimen from 1998-2014 and in complete remission for at least 3 months were identified in a single-center institutional database. Laboratory tests categorized by Common Terminology Criteria for Adverse Events v4.03 as grade 2 or higher were considered abnormal. Primary analysis included sensitivity, specificity, positive predictive value (PPV), and negative predictive value (NPV) of surveillance laboratory tests for predicting relapse in the first 3 years after end of treatment.. RESULTS: Among 235 eligible patients, 24 (10.2%) patients ultimately relapsed. In the first 3 years after end ...
Nodular lymphocyte predominant Hodgkin lymphoma (NLPHL) is an indolent lymphoma, but can transform into diffuse large B cell lymphoma (DLBCL), showing a more aggressive clinical behavior. Little is known about these cases on the molecular level. Therefore, the aim of the present study was to characterize DLBCL transformed from NLPHL (LP-DLBCL) by gene expression profiling (GEP). GEP revealed an inflammatory signature pinpointing to a specific host response. In a coculture model resembling this host response, DEV tumor cells showed an impaired growth behavior. Mechanisms involved in the reduced tumor cell proliferation included a downregulation of MYC and its target genes. Lack of MYC expression was also confirmed in 12/16 LP-DLBCL by immunohistochemistry. Furthermore, CD274/PD-L1 was upregulated in DEV tumor cells after coculture with T cells or monocytes and its expression was validated in 12/19 cases of LP-DLBCL. Thereby, our data provide new insights into the pathogenesis of LP-DLBCL and an ...
steveo - Survivor: Hodgkin Disease > Classic Hodgkin Disease > Nodular sclerosing Patient Info: Finished active treatment more than 5 years ago, Diagnosed: almost 18 years ago, Male, Age: 32
Preclinical studies suggest that HRS cells evade immune detection by exploiting the pathways associated with immune checkpoint, Programmed Death-1 (PD-1) and its ligands PD-L. Classical Hodgkin Lymphoma is an excellent example of how the tumor microenvironment influences cancer cells to proliferate and survive. The most common genetic abnormality in Nodular sclerosis subtype of Hodgkin lymphoma is the selective amplification of genes on the short arm of chromosome 9 (9p24.1) which includes JAK-2, with resulting increased expression of PD-1 ligands such as PDL1 and PDL2 on HRS cells, as well as increased JAK-STAT activity, essential for the proliferation and survival of Hodgkin Reed-Sternberg (HRS) cells. Infection with Epstein-Barr virus (EBV) similarly can increase the expression of PDL1 and PDL2 in EBV-positive Hodgkin lymphomas. It would therefore seem logical to block or inhibit immune check point PD-1 rather than both its ligands, PDL1 and PDL2.. Immune checkpoints are cell surface ...
Hodgkin lymphoma is cancer that begins in the lymph system in white blood cells called lymphocytes. When these cells become abnormal, they grow without control and may form lumps of tissue called tumors.. The most common type of Hodgkin lymphoma is called classical Hodgkin lymphoma. The cancerous tumors (lymphomas) in classical Hodgkin lymphoma contain Reed-Sternberg cells. Non-Hodgkin lymphomas dont have these cells.. Symptoms of Hodgkin lymphoma include enlargement of the lymph nodes, fever, appetite loss, weight loss, and night sweats.. Hodgkin lymphoma affects men more often than women. The cause of Hodgkin lymphoma is not known.. Treatment for Hodgkin lymphoma depends on the stage of the lymphoma and may include radiation or chemotherapy.. ...

Scientists at the Queensland Institute of Medical Research have discovered that a simple blood test can determine how well chemotherapy is working in Hodgkin lymphoma patients.. The discovery by Professor Maher Gandhi and Kimberley Jones from QIMRs Clinical Immunohaematology Laboratory could mean personalised treatment for patients with the blood cancer.. This has the potential to be a huge aid for doctors in their decision making and a faster and less invasive process for the patients, Professor Gandhi said.. Up until now, clinicians have relied on scans to help them judge how well people are responding to chemotherapy. The imaging is expensive, it can be difficult to interpret, and can be limited to just one scan before treatment starts, and another when treatment is finished.. This discovery means we can work towards using simple blood tests to provide quicker, cheaper, and more regular monitoring of how a person is responding to treatment.. About 400 Australians are diagnosed with ...

Paraffin sections from a series of 50 lymph nodes affected by Hodgkins disease were examined by means of the unlabelled primary antibody peroxidase-antiperoxidase method to detect those cells which contained S-100 protein. In addition, 15 lymph nodes showing reactive follicular hyperplasia were studied. A simple enumeration procedure (eyepiece graticule) was used to count the number of such cells in 20 standard 25 X microscope fields. In the specimens of nodular sclerosing Hodgkins disease many cells positive for S-100 protein were present, in contrast to the other Rye subtypes, which showed a relative paucity. By comparison, the lymph nodes showing reactive follicular hyperplasia contained a similar number of cells containing S-100 to those seen in the nodular sclerosing lymph nodes affected by Hodgkins disease.. ...

AU - Ansell, Stephen Maxted. PY - 2016/1/2. Y1 - 2016/1/2. N2 - Cancer cells are able to escape surveillance from the immune system by co-opting physiologic mechanisms such as the programmed cell death-1 (PD-1) receptor pathway. Agents able to block the interaction between the PD-1 receptor and its ligands have the potential to release T cells from tumor-induced suppression and eradicate malignant cells. Nivolumab-a PD-1 inhibitor-is approved for the treatment of patients with metastatic melanoma and lung cancer. This agent has been tested in patients with advanced Hodgkin lymphoma (HL) and showed impressive results in a phase I trial. Here we review the profile of Nivolumab including its pharmacological properties, clinical efficacy and safety in patients with advanced classical HL.. AB - Cancer cells are able to escape ...
In patients with Hodgkin lymphoma who are at risk for disease progression following autologous stem cell transplantation, early consolidation with brentuximab vedotin (Adcetris) post-transplant significantly improved progression-free survival compared with placebo in the phase III AETHERA trial.1 The median progression-free survival was 43 months for the brentuximab-treated group vs 24 months for the placebo group, representing a significant 43% reduction in the risk of disease progression (P = .001).. In my opinion, once this study is published, brentuximab should be the standard of care for patients with the characteristics in this trial: that is, remission duration less than 1 year, extranodal disease, B symptoms, two or more prior salvage therapies, and primary refractory disease, said lead author Craig Moskowitz, MD, Clinical Director of the Division of Hematologic Oncology at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center, New York.. Dr. Moskowitz explained that autologous stem cell ...
16 December 2011 Toronto - A Canadian-led clinical trial has found that patients with limited stage Hodgkin lymphoma have better overall survival rates when treated with chemotherapy compared with those receiving extensive radiation. The results were presented at the American Society of Hematology annual meeting and published online by The New England Journal of Medicine.. Currently, patients with limited stage Hodgkin lymphoma receive radiation therapy combined with chemotherapy. While this combination therapy is effective at controlling the disease, patients may experience long-term side effects, such as heart conditions or subsequent cancers, from the radiation. For this study, the researchers recruited 405 patients with limited stage (IA or IIA) Hodgkin lymphoma (HL). The trial participants were divided into favourable- and unfavourable-risk groups and randomized into two treatment arms: those who received the ABVD chemotherapy regimen and those who received radiation therapy (with or ...

MONDAY, March 13, 2017 (HealthDay News) -- The risk of developing a second type of cancer may be high among Hodgkin lymphoma survivors, especially those with a family history of cancer. Thats the finding of a new European study in which researchers examined data from more than 9,500 Hodgkin lymphoma patients. Hodgkin lymphoma, once known as Hodgkins disease, is a cancer that starts in the white blood cells called lymphocytes. Lymphocytes are part of the immune system, according to the American Cancer Society.
54 NCCN Guidelines for Patients ® Hodgkin Lymphoma, Version 1.2015 4 Treatment guide: Classical Hodgkin lymphoma Review Review • First-time treatment for classic Hodgkin lymphoma almost always consists of chemotherapy and radiation therapy. Sometimes, chemotherapy alone is given if it works really well. More chemotherapy is given to cancers that are larger or more widespread. • Refractory cancer is cancer that isnt cured during first-time treatment. Chemotherapy is often first used for treatment. If the cancer responds well, you may have a stem cell transplant with or without radiation therapy. If the cancer responds less well, you may receive other drug treatments with or without radiation therapy. Radiation therapy alone is also an option to treat refractory disease following chemotherapy. • A relapse is cancer that re-appears on tests after a cancer-free period. Treatment options for stage IA or IIA depend on whether you had radiation therapy before. If not, chemotherapy with or ...
If Hodgkin lymphoma returns after treatment, you may receive stem cell transplantation. A transplant of your own blood-forming stem cells (autologous stem cell transplantation) allows you to receive high doses of chemotherapy, radiation therapy, or both. The high doses destroy both Hodgkin lymphoma cells and healthy blood cells in the bone marrow.. Stem cell transplants take place in the hospital. Before you receive high-dose treatment, your stem cells are removed and may be treated to kill lymphoma cells that may be present. Your stem cells are frozen and stored. After you receive high-dose treatment to kill Hodgkin lymphoma cells, your stored stem cells are thawed and given back to you through a flexible tube placed in a large vein in your neck or chest area. New blood cells develop from the transplanted stem cells.. ...
Kandukuri Mahesh Kumar1, V. Indira2, Sudhir Kumar Vujhini3 1Assistant Professor, 2Prof & HOD, 3Associate Professor, Department of Pathology, Malla Reddy Institute of Medical Sciences, Suraram, Hyderabad.. Abstract Of all the pediatric malignancies, lymphomas account for about 10-15% of the cases with half of them diagnosed as Hodgkins lymphoma. Remarkably, this malignancy has a high cure rate with a 5-year survival rate approaching 95%. Hodgkins lymphoma has an overall incidence rate of 14 per 100,000 less than 15 years of age. It has a typical bimodal distribution with respect to age. In developed countries, the peak incidence is seen in young adults and the elderly. While, in developing countries the incidence is higher among children and young adults with a male preponderance. Histologically, mixed cellularity subtype of classical Hodgkins lymphoma occurs commonly in the children and in developing countries. We report three typical cases of classical Hodgkins lymphoma, mixed cellularity ...
People with Hodgkin lymphoma may be treated with chemotherapy, radiation therapy, or both.. If Hodgkin lymphoma comes back after the treatment of lymphoma, doctors call this a relapse or recurrence. People with Hodgkin lymphoma that comes back after treatment may receive high doses of chemotherapy, radiation therapy, or both, followed by stem cell transplantation.. Chemotherapy. Chemotherapy for Hodgkin lymphoma uses drugs to kill lymphoma cells. It is called systemic therapy because the drugs travel through the bloodstream. The drugs can reach lymphoma cells in almost all parts of the body.. Usually, more than one drug is given. Most drugs for Hodgkin lymphoma are given through a vein (intravenous), but some are taken by mouth.. Chemotherapy is given in cycles. You have a treatment period followed by a rest period. The length of the rest period and the number of treatment cycles depend on the stage of your disease and on the anticancer drugs used.. You may have your treatment in a clinic, at ...

3. What are the symptoms of Hodgkin lymphoma? The most common signs of Hodgkin lymphoma are swollen (painless) lymph nodes in the neck, underarm, or groin, as well as fever, night sweats and weight loss. Other symptoms can include itchy skin, fatigue, cough or shortness of breath.. 4. How do doctors diagnose Hodgkin lymphoma? Typically, the doctor will first conduct a physical exam to check for signs of health and any unusual lumps. The doctor will also check routine blood tests and perform scans, such as a CT scan or MRI.. A biopsy of involved tissue or lymph nodes is essential to make a diagnosis. A pathologist then examines the lymph node tissue to look for the malignant B cells.. A doctor may decide to run additional blood tests, including a blood chemistry study and a check for erythrocyte sedimentation rate.. 5. What are the treatment options for Hodgkin lymphoma? There are two main tools used in standard treatment for Hodgkin lymphoma: Chemotherapy and radiation therapy.. Combination ...

Background. Reports dealing with clinical outcomes of classical Hodgkins lymphoma in low- to middle-income countries are scarce and response to therapy is poorly documented. This report describes the characteristics and clinical outcomes of patients with classical Hodgkins lymphoma from a single institution in Latin America.. Method. A retrospective study was conducted over ten years of patients with classical Hodgkins lymphoma treated at a referral center. Progression-free and overall survival rates were estimated by Kaplan-Meier analysis. The univariate Cox regression model was used to estimate associations between important variables and clinical outcomes.. Main results. One hundred and twenty-eight patients were analyzed. The mean age was 28.5 years. The five-year progression-free and overall survival were 37.3% and 78.9%, respectively. Of the whole group, 55 (43%) were primary refractory cases. Only 39/83 (47%) patients with advanced disease vs. 34/45 (75.6%) in early stages ...
PURPOSE: To assess the effect of more extensive radiotherapy and of adjuvant combination chemotherapy on long-term outcome of early-stage Hodgkins disease. METHODS: In a collaborative worldwide systematic overview, individual patient data were centrally reviewed on 1,974 patients in eight randomized trials of more versus less extensive radiotherapy and on 1,688 patients in 13 trials of radiotherapy plus chemotherapy versus radiotherapy alone. Crude mortality data on 226 patients in two other trials of chemotherapy were also reviewed. RESULTS: More extensive radiotherapy reduced the risk of treatment failure (resistant or recurrent disease) at 10 years by more than one third (31.3% v 43.4% failures; P | .00001), but there was no apparent improvement in overall 10-year survival (77.1 % v 77.0% alive). The addition of chemotherapy to radiotherapy halved the 10-year risk of failure (15.8% v 32.7%; P | .00001), with a small, nonsignificant improvement in survival (79.4% v 76.5% alive). This involved a

Abundant macrophage infiltration in tumors often correlates with a poor prognosis. T cell/histiocyte rich large B cell lymphoma (THRLBCL) is a distinct aggressive B cell lymphoma entity showing a high macrophage content. To further elucidate the role of tumor-associated macrophages in THRLBCL, we performed gene expression profiling of microdissected histiocyte subsets of THRLBCL, nodular lymphocyte predominant Hodgkin lymphoma (NLPHL), Piringer lymphadenitis, sarcoidosis, nonspecific lymphadenitis and monocytes from peripheral blood. In a supervised principal component analysis, histiocytes from THRLBCL were most closely related to epithelioid cells from NLPHL, with both types of cells expressing genes related to proinflammatory and regulatory macrophage activity. Moreover, histiocytes from THRLBCL strongly expressed metal-binding proteins like MT2A, by which histiocytes of THRLBCL can be distinguished from the other histiocyte subsets investigated. Interestingly, the validation at the protein ...

In industrialized populations, Hodgkins disease (HD) has an initial peak in young adulthood, whereas in economically developing populations the initial peak occurs in childhood. This pattern resembles that of infection with poliovirus and suggests an infectious cofactor in the etiology. Serologic studies have linked Epstein-Barr virus (EBV) to young adult and adult HD, and viral nucleic acids and antigens have been detected in a subset of Hodgkins tumor specimens. To investigate the association of childhood HD with EBV we studied tumor specimens from 11 children treated in Honduras and 25 children treated in the United States using in situ hybridization and antigen detection techniques. Among the patients from Honduras, tumor specimens from all cases were EBV positive. Among the patients from the United States, tumor specimens from six of seven patients with mixed cellularity histology, 2 of 15 with nodular sclerosis histology, and neither of two patients with lymphocyte-predominant histologies were
Derivation of H/RS cells from mature B cells was previously demonstrated in 18 out of 18 informative unselected cases of cHD analyzed in Cologne and Frankfurt (3)(4)(5)(17)(18)(19). In addition, recent results obtained by others indicate B cell derivation of H/RS cells in 24 out of 25 cases of cHD (20). On the other hand, in a nonselected collection of 13 cases of primary cHD, Daus and colleagues did not detect clonal TCR-γ gene rearrangements in micromanipulated H/RS cells from any of these cases (21). Therefore, these data collectively indicate that cHD represents a homogenous entity as a B cell lymphoma.. However, there are some observations raising the possibility that-in a subset of cHD-the tumor cells might stem from T lymphocytes. Some putative H/RS cell lines, for example, are derived from T cells (2). For these cell lines, proof of derivation from H/RS cells in the patients is missing. Furthermore, a TCR-α gene rearrangement was amplified from whole tissue DNA of lymphomatoid ...

Hodgkins lymphoma is one of the most common lymphoid cancers, particularly among young adults. Although there have been dramatic improvements in the treatment of Hodgkins lymphoma, leading to high cure rates in some groups, current combination chemotherapy regimes are associated with significant secondary complications in long-term survivors. Furthermore, although a proportion of patients with Hodgkins lymphoma will be cured, there still remains a significant rate of relapse and also a smaller proportion of poor responders who will go on to die of their disease. Therefore, developments in the treatment of Hodgkins lymphoma must be directed at improving cure rates and reducing the burden of secondary complications. In recent years, the underlying pathogenesis of Hodgkins lymphoma has become better understood. In particular, it is emerging that a key pathogenic event in Hodgkins lymphoma is protection from Fas-induced cell death. Recent studies by the authors group, and others, have ...

Hodgkin lymphoma was first described in an 1832 report by Thomas Hodgkin, although Hodgkin noted that perhaps the earliest reference to the condition was provided by Marcello Malpighi in 1666.[51][13] While occupied as museum curator at Guys Hospital, London, Hodgkin studied seven with painless lymph node enlargement. Of the seven cases, two were under the care of Richard Bright, one was of Thomas Addison, and one was of Robert Carswell.[51] Carswells report of this seventh person was accompanied by numerous illustrations that aided early descriptions of the disease.[52]. Hodgkins report on these seven people, entitled On some morbid appearances of the absorbent glands and spleen, was presented to the Medical and Chirurgical Society of London in January 1832 and was subsequently published in the societys journal, Medical-Chirurgical Society Transactions.[51] Hodgkins paper went largely unnoticed, however, even despite Bright highlighting it in an 1838 publication.[51] Indeed, Hodgkin ...

Magnetic resonance images demonstrated a circumscribed diffusely enhancing mass with a dural tail attached to the cerebellar tentorium. INTERVENTION: Operation inspection also suggested a meningioma, but a frozen section of the firm mass revealed an inflammatory lesion. Subsequent pathological analysis demonstrated Hodgkins disease, nodular sclerosing type. An extensive workup revealed no systemic disease. CONCLUSION: This case illustrates the ...
Despite a high clinical success, relapse in Hodgkin lymphoma occurs in 10–30% of cases and 5–10% patients are nonresponsive to initial chemotherapy. The standard management of these patients includes high-dose chemotherapy followed by autologous stem cell transplant. However, 50% of patients ultimately relapse after autotransplant which poses a big challenge. Allogeneic stem cell transplantation offers the only chance of cure in these patients. For patients who are not candidates for allogeneic stem cell transplantation, achieving cure with other possible options is highly unlikely, and thus the treatment plan becomes noncurative. Various novel agents have shown promising results but the duration of response is short lived. A standard approach to deliver the most effective treatment for these patients is still lacking. This review focuses on the treatment options currently available for relapsed and refractory disease after autotransplant.
Immunologic studies were done on 47 long-term survivors of Hodgkins disease who had been treated with MOPP chemotherapy (mechlorethamine, vincristine, procarbazine, and prednisone). Percentages of E rosettes and mitogen-induced lymphocyte proliferation were significantly reduced compared to those in normal control subjects. There was no tendency for these abnormalities to return to the normal range with increasing disease-free intervals. No abnormalities of B-cell number or function were detected. Long-term survivors of advanced diffuse histiocytic lymphoma treated with comparable chemotherapy, who served as a control population, had significantly higher percentages of E rosettes and no reduction in mitogen-induced lymphocyte proliferation. Thus these persistent immunologic abnormalities cannot be attributed to chemotherapy alone. The presence of similar immunologic abnormalities in untreated patients with Hodgkins disease of all stages and in patients cured by either MOPP or radiotherapy ...

Most patients with chronic lymphocytic leukemia (CLL) are diagnosed with early stage disease and managed with active surveillance. The individual course of subjects with early stage CLL is heterogeneous and their probability of needing treatment is hardly anticipated at diagnosis. We aimed at developing an international prognostic score to predict time to first treatment (TTFT) in CLL patients with early, asymptomatic disease (IPS-E). Individual patient data from 11 international cohorts of patients with early stage CLL (n=4933) were analyzed to build and validate the prognostic score. Three covariates were consistently and independently correlated with TTFT: unmutated IGHV genes, absolute lymphocyte count ,15 x109/l, and presence of palpable lymph nodes. The IPS-E was the sum of the covariates (one point each), and separated low-risk (score 0), intermediate-risk (score 1) and high-risk patients (score 2-3) showing a distinct TTFT. The score accuracy was validated in 9 cohorts staged by the ...
Seattle Genetics Adcetris has received a boost after the US Food and Drug Administrations (FDA) granted the lymphoma drug priority review status.. Adcetris (brentuximab vedotin), an antibody-drug conjugate, was awarded the status based on the results of the phase III ECHELON-1 trial, which had a primary endpoint of an improved PFS in previously untreated advanced classical Hodgkin lymphoma patients..

Purpose: There is evidence that Hodgkin Reed-Sternberg (HRS) cells in classical Hodgkin lymphoma (cHL) could display some molecular and morphologic markers of cellular senescence (CS). We hypothesized that CS mechanisms may have potential prognostic relevance in cHL and investigated whether the expression of the well-established CS biomarkers p21CIP1/WAF1 and p16INK4a by HRS cells might be predictive of the probability of event-free survival (EFS).. Experimental Design: The study analyzed a retrospective cohort of 147 patients and the results were validated on a cohort of 91 patients independently diagnosed and treated in a different institution. p16INK4a and p21CIP1/WAF1 were categorized as dichotomous variables (, or ≥ 30% of HRS cells at diagnosis) and evaluated in univariate and multivariate analysis.. Results: Both molecules were independent prognostic factors. A positive staining of one of the two molecules in more than 30% HRS cells predicted a better EFS (P , 0.01). ...
Hodgkins lymphoma. Why is it always Hodgkins lymphoma? OK, its not always Hodgkins lymphoma, but it frequently is. Whats so frustrating about seeing young people with Hodgkins lymphoma choosing quackery instead of effective medicine is that Hodgkins lymphoma is so treatable for cure. Indeed, even stage IV Hodgkins lymphoma can be cured about 65% of the time. Sofronsky must have had stage III Hodgkins because the story says she had an estimated 80% chance of beating it with standard treatment. Remember, Hodgkins disease is usually treated with a combination of chemotherapy and radiation therapy.. Of course, the problem is the chemotherapy. Of all the treatments for cancer, chemotherapy tends to be what scares people the most. Its understandable. Take breast cancer, for instance, which I treat surgically. Most women operated on for breast cancer undergo fairly small operations, but even for those who undergo mastectomy, the recovery is generally within a month and the pain not long ...

Lymphoma refers to a family of cancers of the lymphatic system, which includes the parts of the immune system responsible for fighting disease and infection. Lymphomas are divided into two categories, Hodgkins and non-Hodgkins.. Hodgkins lymphoma, also known as HL, is a cancer that begins in lymphocytes, the white blood cells responsible for immune system responses. HL begins when a lymphocyte (usually a B cell) becomes abnormal, with the presence of a particular abnormal cell called a Reed-Sternberg cell. (See photo below.). The Reed-Sternberg cell divides to make copies of itself. The new cells divide again and again, making more and more abnormal cells. The abnormal cells dont die when they should, and they dont protect the body from infections or other diseases. Instead, the buildup of extra cells often forms a mass of tissue called a growth or tumor.. HL can start almost anywhere in the body because of the extensive reach of the lymphatic system. Usually, HL is first found in a lymph ...
Fine needle aspiration (FNA) or core needle biopsy. Your doctor may choose this type of biopsy if you have swollen lymph nodes in your neck or armpit. For FNA, the doctor uses a very thin, hollow needle. For a core needle biopsy, the doctor uses a slightly bigger needle. The needle is used to take a small sample of tissue from the lymph node. For tumors deeper in the body, ultrasound or CT scans may be used to help the doctor guide the needle into place. A needle biopsy may not remove enough tissue for the pathologist to see cancerous cells. Or the sample may also be too small to tell the type of lymphoma. Because of this, most doctors dont use a needle biopsy to try to diagnose Hodgkin lymphoma. But there are times when a needle biopsy may be helpful. If you have been diagnosed with Hodgkin lymphoma, your doctor may use this to see if swelling in another part of your body is also lymphoma.. ...

Between 11/2010 and 12/2011, 16 pts were included. The trial was closed early because we observed only 5 responses after 4 cycles. Median age was 34 years (18-77). The median number of previous lines was 5 (2-6). Ten pts were primary refractory and 11 were refractory at inclusion. Twelve pts were R/R a median of 5 months after ASCT and 4 pts never had achieved a chemosensitive status. Five pts had also received aloSCT. Twelve pts presented with extranodal disease at inclusion. A total of 110 cycles were administered, with serious (grade ≥ 3) toxicity in 43 cycles (39%). The most frequent serious toxicities were neutropenia (14% of cycles) and thrombocytopenia (7% of cycles). A toxic death was observed after a septic shock in a non neutropenic pt. An ORR of 38% (1 CR and 5 PR) was observed and 10 pts (62%) achieved clinical benefit (response or disease stabilization for more than 6 months). Median progression free survival (PFS) and overall survival (OS) were 7 and 19 months. With a median ...
Hodgkin lymphoma (HL) survivors treated with radiotherapy and/or chemotherapy are known to have increased risks of heart failure (HF), but a radiation dose-response relationship has not previously been derived. A case-control study, nested in a cohort of 2617 five-year survivors of HL diagnosed before age 51 years during 1965 to 1995, was conducted. Cases (n = 91) had moderate or severe HF as their first cardiovascular diagnosis. Controls (n = 278) were matched to cases on age, sex, and HL diagnosis date. Treatment and follow-up information were abstracted from medical records. Mean heart doses and mean left ventricular doses (MLVD) were estimated by reconstruction of individual treatments on representative computed tomography datasets. Average MLVD was 16.7 Gy for cases and 13.8 Gy for controls (Pdifference = .003). HF rate increased with MLVD: relative to 0 Gy, HF rates following MVLD of 1-15, 16-20, 21-25, and ≥26 Gy were 1.27, 1.65, 3.84, and 4.39, respectively (Ptrend | .001). Anthracycline

AU - Tóth, László. AU - Illés, Árpád. PY - 2004/1/1. Y1 - 2004/1/1. N2 - Purpose Secondary malignant tumours and cardiovascular complications are of great importance among the late complications after treatment for Hodgkins disease (HD) because they may significantly reduce the patients life expectancy. We report on coronary artery disease (CAD) after treatment for HD. Methods and Materials We present the case of two female patients with HD who received mediastinal irradiation after which complete remission was achieved. In 12 and 19 years after the onset of the disease, control examinations revealed ischaemic heart disease, which was confirmed by coronary arteriography and solved by stent implantation in one of the patients and bypass surgery in the other one. Conclusions Ischaemic heart disease ...
Clinical Definition Hodgkin disease, or Hodgkin s disease, is a malignant neoplasm of lymphoid cells and is one type of lymphoma. It differs from other lymphomas in that it produces abnormal Reed-Sternberg cells. It is characterized by enlargement of the lymph nodes, spleen and possibly liver. Hodgkin disease is divided into two main subtypes based on…. ...
CD30 is a type I transmembrane glycoprotein of the TNF receptor superfamily. CD30 was originally identified as a cell surface antigen of Hodgkins and Reed-Sternberg cells using monoclonal antibody Ki-1. The ligand for CD30 is CD30L (CD153). The binding of CD30 to CD30L mediates pleiotropic effects including cell proliferation, activation, differentiation, and apoptotic cell death. CD30 has a critical role in the pathophysiology of Hodgkins disease and other CD30+ lymphomas. CD30 acts as a costimulatory molecule in thymic negative selection. In addition to its expression on Hodgkins and Reed-Sternberg cells, CD30 is also found in some non-Hodgkins lymphomas (including Burkitts lymphomas), virus-infected T and B cells, and on normal T and B cells after activation. In T cells, CD30 expression is present on a subset of T cells that produce Th2-type cytokines and on CD4+/CD8+ thymocytes that co-express CD45RO and the IL4 receptor. Soluble form of CD30 (sCD30) serves as a marker reflecting Th2 ...
A 25-year-old male with an existing diagnosis activated his CancerCARE benefit. The patient reported a diagnosis of a rare, high-risk subtype of Hodgkins disease. The patient was receiving treatment for this initial diagnosis. Upon activating his CancerCARE® benefit, the patients samples were sent to a Center of Excellence for diagnosis confirmation. The second opinion determined that the patient had classical Hodgkins disease, not the high-risk diagnosis he originally received. With CancerCAREs help, the patients treatment was adjusted and his overall outcome was improved.. ...

Figure 24-3 illustrates a relatively rare event in children with Hodgkin disease: the direct infiltration of malignant cells into the skin. A biopsy analysis of these brownish papules, nodules, and plaques reveals a histology similar to that of affected lymph nodes. These lesions may occasionally ulcerate, and pruritus is a distressing symptom. ...

AFM13 is a RECRUIT-TandAb (CD30xCD16A) for treating Hodgkin Lymphoma by recruiting NK-cells and macrophages to the specific CD30 surface antigen on Reed-Sternberg cells. This redirected immune response leads to potent tumor cell killing. RECRUIT TandAbs are tetravalent and bispecific, and address key deficiencies of monoclonal antibodies such as (i) differential binding to V/F allotypes of CD16A receptor and (ii) non-selective binding to activating CD16A and non-signalling CD16B receptors. Furthermore, RECRUIT-TandAbs have significant advantages over other antibody fragment technologies such as (i) bivalent binding to the targets and, (ii) longer half-life.. AFM13 binds with high affinity to both CD30 and CD16A and is able to rapidly induce lysis of CD30+ cells at picomolar concentrations in the presence of PBMCs. Intensive in vitro characterization demonstrated that AFM13 is specific for the CD16A receptor, which becomes activated only in the presence of tumor cells: there is no systemic ...
Unfortunately, it was not the good cancer and the road to remission was a bumpy one to say the least. It took a rare syngeneic stem cell transplant and almost two years of back-to-back high dose chemotherapy treatment and radiation therapy to bring our sister into remission status. As a family, we experienced this two-year challenging journey right along our sister. This sobering experience inspired us to do something tangible in our sisters honor and in honor of other cancer warriors and survivors to help promote worldwide awareness for Hodgkins Lymphoma, a cancer wrongly deemed the good cancer ...
