RNA sequences that serve as templates for protein synthesis. Bacterial mRNAs are generally primary transcripts in that they do not require post-transcriptional processing. Eukaryotic mRNA is synthesized in the nucleus and must be exported to the cytoplasm for translation. Most eukaryotic mRNAs have a sequence of polyadenylic acid at the 3' end, referred to as the poly(A) tail. The function of this tail is not known for certain, but it may play a role in the export of mature mRNA from the nucleus as well as in helping stabilize some mRNA molecules by retarding their degradation in the cytoplasm.

The intracellular transfer of information (biological activation/inhibition) through a signal pathway. In each signal transduction system, an activation/inhibition signal from a biologically active molecule (hormone, neurotransmitter) is mediated via the coupling of a receptor/enzyme to a second messenger system or to an ion channel. Signal transduction plays an important role in activating cellular functions, cell differentiation, and cell proliferation. Examples of signal transduction systems are the GAMMA-AMINOBUTYRIC ACID-postsynaptic receptor-calcium ion channel system, the receptor-mediated T-cell activation pathway, and the receptor-mediated activation of phospholipases. Those coupled to membrane depolarization or intracellular release of calcium include the receptor-mediated activation of cytotoxic functions in granulocytes and the synaptic potentiation of protein kinase activation. Some signal transduction pathways may be part of larger signal transduction pathways; for example, protein kinase activation is part of the platelet activation signal pathway.

A class of drugs that differs from other alkylating agents used clinically in that they are monofunctional and thus unable to cross-link cellular macromolecules. Among their common properties are a requirement for metabolic activation to intermediates with antitumor efficacy and the presence in their chemical structures of N-methyl groups, that after metabolism, can covalently modify cellular DNA. The precise mechanisms by which each of these drugs acts to kill tumor cells are not completely understood. (From AMA, Drug Evaluations Annual, 1994, p2026)

The role of alternative splicing of the adhesion molecule, CD44, in lymphoid malignancy. (1/3916)

AIM: To investigate the expression of CD44 isoforms containing variant exon 6 (v6) in a well characterised cohort of patients with non-Hodgkin's lymphoma (NHL) and chronic lymphocytic leukaemia (CLL), and to correlate this with phenotype and disease course. METHODS: Cryostat sections of OCT embedded diagnostic nodal material from NHL patients and cryopreserved mononuclear preparations from CLL patients were used as sources of RNA. After reverse transcription, PCR was carried out with amplimers positioned at either side of the variant exon insertion site to amplify all possible CD44 isoforms. Those isoforms containing v6 were identified after Southern blotting and hybridisation with a radiolabelled oligonucleotide. RESULTS: Of 32 NHL samples analysed, 16 did not express CD44 isoforms containing v6, six expressed an isoform containing exon v6 alone, and 10 expressed v6 long isoforms which contained exon v6 in addition to other variant exons. These data did not correlate with lymphoma classification, disease staging, or the presence or absence of extranodal disease. However, those patients expressing v6 long CD44 isoforms had a worse overall survival than those that did not. The plateau of the survival curves was 50% compared with 82%. No v6 long isoforms were detected in the 21 CLL samples investigated. CONCLUSIONS: The expression of v6 long CD44 isoforms is associated with aggressive disease in NHL, independent of grade, stage, or presence of extranodal disease.  (+info)

Incidence and occupational pattern of leukaemias, lymphomas, and testicular tumours in western Ireland over an 11 year period. (2/3916)

STUDY OBJECTIVE: To determine incidence of the following malignancies, testicular tumours, all leukaemias and all lymphomas in the West of Ireland in an 11 year period. Secondly, to examine the relation between disease patterns and available occupational data in male subjects of working age. DESIGN: A census survey of all cases occurring in the three counties in the Western Health Board (WHB) area, Galway, Mayo and Roscommon, for the 11 year period 1980 to 1990 inclusive. Average annual age standardised incidence rates for the period were calculated using the 1986 census data. Rates for the area are compared with rates from the southern region of Ireland, which had a tumour registry. Trends over the time period are evaluated. All male subjects for whom occupational data were available were categorised using the Irish socioeconomic group classification and incidence rates by occupation were compared using the standardised incidence ratio method. In one of the counties, Galway, a detailed occupational history of selected cases and an age matched control group was also elicited through patients' general practitioners. SETTING: All available case records in the West of Ireland. RESULTS: There are no national incidence records for the period. Compared with data from the Southern Tumour Registry, the number of cases of women with myeloid leukaemias was significantly lower. Male leukaemia rates were significantly lower as a group (SIR 84 (95% CI 74, 95) but not when considered as individual categories. Regression analysis revealed an increasing trend in the number of new cases of non-Hodgkin's lymphoma among both men (r = 0.47, p = 0.02) and women (r = 0.90, p = 0.0001) and of chronic lymphocytic leukaemia in men (r = 0.77, p = 0.005) and women (r = 0.68 p = 0.02) in the WHB region over the last decade. Four hundred and fifty six male cases over the age of 15 years were identified and adequate occupational information was available for 74% of these. Standardised incidence ratios of testicular tumours 100, 938) and agriworkers other than farmers (SIR 377, 95% CI 103, 967). There were also significantly increased incidence ratios for both non-Hodgkin's lymphoma (SIR 169, 95% CI 124, 266) and three categories of leukaemias among farmers. Hodgkin's disease and acute myeloid leukaemias were significantly increased among semi-skilled people. Interview data with 90 cases and 54 controls of both sexes revealed that among farmers, cases (n = 31) were significantly less likely than controls (n = 20) to use tractor mounted spraying techniques (OR = 0.19 (95% CI 0.04, 0.80)) and less likely to wear protective masks (OR 0.22 (95% CI 0.05, 0.84)). CONCLUSIONS: Trends of increase in non-Hodgkin's lymphoma and some leukaemias are consistent with studies elsewhere. The study provides further evidence of the relation between agricultural work and certain lymphoproliferative cancers. The possible carcinogenic role of chemicals used in agricultural industries must be considered as an explanation.  (+info)

67Cu-2IT-BAT-Lym-1 pharmacokinetics, radiation dosimetry, toxicity and tumor regression in patients with lymphoma. (3/3916)

Lym-1, a monoclonal antibody that preferentially targets malignant lymphocytes, has induced therapeutic responses and prolonged survival in patients with non-Hodgkin's lymphoma when labeled with 1311. Radiometal-labeled antibodies provide higher tumor radiation doses than corresponding 1311 antibodies. 67Cu has an exceptional combination of properties desirable for radioimmunotherapy, including gamma and beta emissions for imaging and therapy, respectively, a biocompatible half-time and absence of pathways contributing to myelotoxicity. The radioimmunoconjugate, 67Cu-21T-BAT-Lym-1, has been shown to be efficacious in nude mice bearing human Burkitt's lymphoma (Raji) xenografts. Based on these results, a clinical study of the pharmacokinetics and dosimetry of 67Cu-21T-BAT-Lym-1 in patients with lymphoma was initiated. METHODS: Eleven patients with advanced stage 3 or 4 lymphoma were given a preload dose of unmodified Lym-1, then an imaging dose of 126-533 MBq (3.4-14.4 mCi) 67Cu-21T-BAT-Lym-1. Total Lym-1 ranged from 25 to 70 mg dependent on the specific activity of the radioimmunoconjugate and was infused at a rate of 0.5-1 mg/min. Imaging, physical examination, including caliper measurement of superficial tumors, and analysis of blood, urine and fecal samples were performed for a period of 6-13 d after infusion to assess pharmacokinetics, radiation dosimetry, toxicity and tumor regression. RESULTS: In 7 patients, in whom superficial tumors had been accurately measured, tumors regressed from 18% to 75% (mean 48%) within several days of 67Cu-21T-BAT-Lym-1 infusion. The uptake and biological half-time of 67Cu-21T-BAT-Lym-1 in tumors were greater than those of normal tissues, except the mean liver half-time exceeded the mean tumor half-time. The mean tumor-to-marrow radiation ratio was 32:1, tumor-to-total body was 24:1 and tumor-to-liver was 1.5:1. Images were of very good quality; tumors and normal organs were readily identified. Mild and transient Lym-1 toxicity occurred in 6 patients; 1 patient developed a human antimouse antibody. There were no significant changes in blood counts or serum chemistries indicative of radiation toxicity. CONCLUSION: Because of the long residence time of 67Cu-21T-BAT-Lym-1 in tumors, high therapeutic ratios were achieved and, remarkably, numerous tumor regressions were observed after imaging doses. The results indicate considerable therapeutic potential for 67Cu-21T-BAT-Lym-1.  (+info)

Second-line treatment for primary central nervous system lymphoma. (4/3916)

Failure after first-line treatment was reported in 35-60% of immunocompetent patients with primary central nervous system lymphoma (PCNSL). There are currently no reports focusing on salvage therapy. This review analyses prognostic factors and the efficacy of salvage therapy by focusing on data from papers reporting results of first-line treatment in 355 cases. The study group consisted of 173 patients presenting treatment failure. The interval between failure and death (TTD) was compared for age at relapse (< or =60 vs. >60 years), type of failure (relapse vs. progression), time to relapse (< or =12 vs. >12 months) and salvage treatment (yes vs no). Median TTD was similar in younger and older patients (P = 0.09). Relapsed patients had a longer TTD than patients with progressive disease (P = 0.002). Early relapse led to a shorter TTD than late relapse (P = 0.005). Median TTD was 14 months for patients who underwent salvage therapy and 2 months for untreated cases (P<0.00001). A multivariate analysis showed an independent prognostic role for salvage therapy and time to relapse. Age and type of failure had no predictive value. Salvage therapy significantly improves outcome and, possibly, quality of life. As many different treatments were used conclusions cannot be made regarding an optimal treatment schedule.  (+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. (5/3916)

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)

ESHAP as salvage therapy for refractory non-Hodgkin's lymphoma: Taiwan experience. (6/3916)

BACKGROUND: The ESHAP regimen, a combination of the chemotherapeutic drugs etoposide, methylprednisolone (solumedrol), high-dose cytarabine (ara-C) and cisplatin, has been shown to be active against refractory non-Hodgkin's lymphoma in therapeutic trials. We were interested in determining whether this regimen would be effective and tolerable for Chinese patients. METHODS: Thirty-two patients with refractory/relapsed non-Hodgkins lymphoma (23 intermediate-grade and nine high-grade) were enrolled in this study. Etoposide was administered at a dose of 40 mg/m2/day as a 1 h intravenous infusion from day 1 to day 4, solumedrol 500 mg/day was given as a 15 min intravenous infusion from day 1 to day 5, ara-C 2 g/m2 was given as a 2 h intravenous infusion on day 5 and cisplatin was given at a dose of 25 mg/m2/day as a continuous infusion from day 1 to day 4. Clinical efficacy and toxicity were assessed on the basis of the WHO criteria. RESULTS: Ten patients (31.3%, 95% Cl 15.2-47.4%) attained complete remission (CR) and seven had partial remission (PR). The overall response rate was 53.1% (95% Cl 35.8-70.4%). In eight of the 10 CR patients, the remission lasted for more than 8 months. The remaining two patients had CR of 5 and 6 months. The median duration of CR was 12.2 months (range 5-22 months). Myelosuppression with subsequent infections was the major toxicity. Severe leukopenia (WBC < 1000/microliter) lasted for an average of 12 days and thrombocytopenia (< 25,000/microliter) 18 days. One patient (3.1%) died of neutropenia-associated sepsis within 4 weeks after treatment. Non-myeloid toxicities included alopecia in 66% (28% grade 2, 22% grade 3), stomatitis in 72% (25% grade 2, 28% grade 3, 13% grade 4), hepatotoxicity in 9% (3% grade 2), renal toxicity in 13% (6% grade 2, 3% grade 3) and infection in 56% (18% grade 2, 25% grade 3, 13% grade 4). The majority of the responders relapsed within 2 years after ESHAP treatment. Median survival for all patients was 8.6 months. CONCLUSIONS: ESHAP is an active and tolerable regimen in Chinese patients with relapsed/refractory lymphoma, but the duration of remission is brief and without significant impact on survival.  (+info)

Fludarabine, cyclophosphamide, and dexamethasone (FluCyD) combination is effective in pretreated low-grade non-Hodgkin's lymphoma. (7/3916)

PURPOSE: Fludarabine phosphate is effective as a single agent in low-grade non-Hodgkin's lymphoma (NHL). Combined with other antineoplastic agents it enhances the antitumor effect. Our aim was to define the therapeutic efficacy and toxicity of a combination of fludarabine, cyclophosphamide and dexamethasone (FluCyD) in patients with advanced low-grade lymphoma. PATIENTS AND METHODS: Twenty-five adults with pretreated advanced-stage low-grade NHL were treated with three-day courses of fludarabine 25 mg/m2/day, cyclophosphamide 350 mg/m2/day, and dexamethasone 20 mg/day, every four weeks for a maximum of six courses. RESULTS: Of the 25 patients, 18 (72%) responded, 8 (32%) achieving CR and 10 (40%) PR. Seven were failures. The median follow-up was 21 months (5-26). Eight CR patients remain in CR after 5-21 months. Of 10 PR patients, 3 are in continuous PR without further treatment after 12, 17 and 18 months. Myelosuppression was the most prevalent toxic effect. Although severe granulocytopenia (granulocyte count nadir < 500/microliter) and thrombocytopenia (platelet count nadir < 50,000/microliter) occurred in only 10% and 16% of courses, respectively, slow granulocyte or platelet count recovery caused delay of 40% of the courses. Nine patients (36%) required discontinuation of therapy because of persistent granulocytopenia and/or thrombocytopenia: three after one course, three after 2-4 courses, and three after five courses. Thirteen infectious episodes in 11 patients complicated 11% of courses. Two of 10 patients monitored for the circulating EBV load showed increased viral load. One of these developed aggressive lymphoma. CD4+ lymphocytes declined from a pre-therapy median value of 425/microliter to 141/microliter post-treatment (P = 0.001). Non-hematologic toxicities were rare and mild. CONCLUSIONS: The combination of fludarabine with cyclophosphamide and dexamethasone is effective in pretreated advanced-stage low-grade NHL. It may broaden the range of therapeutic options in the salvage treatment of these patients. The main toxicity of this combination is prolonged myelosuppression that may cause treatment delay or withdrawal. The benefit of adding granulocyte colony-stimulating factor, particularly in patients with poor marrow reserve, needs to be investigated.  (+info)

Is primary CNS lymphoma really becoming more common? A population-based study of incidence, clinicopathological features and outcomes in Alberta from 1975 to 1996. (8/3916)

BACKGROUND: The incidence of primary CNS lymphoma (PCNSL) is believed to be increasing in immunocompetent patients but this may not be universally true. The objective of this study was to determine in a population if the incidence of PCNSL is increasing, if the histologic subtypes are changing, and to describe the clinicopathologic and outcome characteristics of PCNSL. PATIENTS AND METHODS: We identified all Alberta residents with a histologic diagnosis of PCNSL from 1 January 1975 to 31 December 1996 using the Alberta Cancer Registry. Annual age-standardized incidence rates (ASIR), clinicopathologic and outcome characteristics were determined. RESULTS: There were 50 immunocompetent PCNSL patients; the median age was 64 and 30 were male. Their median survival was 10.15 months. Histology was available for review in 37 (74%) patients: 19 (51%) were diffuse large cell, 16 (43%) were immunoblastic and 2 (5%) were unclassifiable malignant lymphomas. The ASIR ranged from 0.178-1.631/10(6) and no change in ASIR was found (test for trend, P = 0.26) for gender or age. The ASIR of malignant gliomas did not change either but increased for all other non-Hodgkin's lymphoma (94.95-138.7610(6); test for trend, P = 0.0001) The number of brain biopsies increased from 1979-1985 (test for trend, P < 0.0001) but remained stable from 1986-1996 (test for trend, P = 0.99). CONCLUSIONS: Unlike several other populations, PCNSL is not becoming significantly more common in Alberta. If this difference is real (i.e., not due to differences in cancer registry coding practices etc.) comparisons between Albertans and other populations in whom the incidence is rising may provide clues regarding the etiology of PCNSL.  (+info)

A recent study conducted by researchers from the Yale School of Public Health in New Haven, Connecticut has revealed that women who are exposed to organic solvents while at work have a higher risk of getting non-Hodgkin lymphoma. About Non-Hodgkin Lymphoma According to the Mayo Clinic, non-Hodgkin lymphoma originates from ones lymphatic system, the core disease-repelling system in the human body. In this condition, tumors arise from lymphocytes, which are a kind of white blood cell. In its initial stages, symptoms of the ailment may only be the presence of swollen lymph nodes in ones neck, armpit or groin areas; these are usually painless. Other possible warning signs include fever, fatigue, weight loss, abdominal swelling or pain, difficulty breathing, and very itchy skin. Statistics from the National Cancer Institute reveal that there were 66,120 new cases of non-Hodgkin lymphoma in the US in 2008, with 19,160 persons dying from it.

Low-grade non-Hodgkins lymphoma (NHL) is an indolent form of the disease with a generally slow course of progression. Although still usually incurable, low-grade disease has shown responsiveness to some of the newer
The beta 2-adrenergic transmembrane signal transduction was investigated in malignant B-cells from 15 patients with low grade non-Hodgkins lymphoma as compared with normal lymphocytes of seven healthy adults. The number of beta 2-adrenoceptors and the response of adenylate cyclase (AC) to isoproterenol were slightly decreased in lymphoma cells. The responsiveness of AC to forskolin was 8-fold lower in lymphoma cells, whereas the response to cholera toxin showed no difference. These findings demonstrate an impairment of the beta 2-adrenergic signal transduction in low grade lymphoma cells that particularly affects the function of AC. The comparison with forskolin resistant mutants of an adrenocortical tumor cell line, Y1 (Schimmer et al., J Biol Chem 262: 15521-15526, 1987), suggests that the availability of functional active alpha subunits of stimulatory G proteins (Gs) might be reduced in human B-cell lymphoma, although other mechanisms known to inhibit the AC activity might be involved. ...

This information is about non-Hodgkin lymphoma, a cancer that starts in the immune system. Non-Hodgkin lymphoma is also called NHL.. Non-Hodgkin lymphoma begins when a lymphocyte (usually a B cell) becomes abnormal. The abnormal 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. They dont protect the body from infections or other diseases. The buildup of extra cells often forms a mass of tissue called a growth or tumor.. Because lymphatic tissue is in many parts of the body, Hodgkin lymphoma can start almost anywhere. Usually, its first found in a lymph node.. When lymphoma is found, the pathologist reports the type. There are many types of lymphoma. The most common types are diffuse large B-cell lymphoma and follicular lymphoma.. Lymphomas may be grouped by how quickly they are likely to grow:. ...
Overview. Non-Hodgkins lymphoma is the seventh most common cancer in men and women in the United States. According to the American Cancer Society, 74000 new cases of non-Hodgkins lymphoma are diagnosed each year in the US. Non-Hodgkins lymphoma originates in the lymphatic system of the body. The lymphatic system fights diseases throughout the body. In non-Hodgkins lymphoma, tumors develop from white blood cells called lymphocytes. Lymph tissue is found in many places throughout the body, so lymphomas can start almost anywhere. Non-Hodgkins lymphoma is more common than the other type of general lymphoma, Hodgkin lymphoma. The major sites of lymph tissue are:. ...

DEAR DR. ROACH: Have you heard that lymphoma patients are more likely than others to develop blood clots after surgery? I nearly died of a pulmonary embolus six days after hernia surgery. I have indolent non-Hodgkins lymphoma and never have had chemotherapy or radiation treatment. -- P.R.. ANSWER: People with many different types of cancers are at higher risk for blood clotting. Those with cancer of the pancreas, colon, stomach, lung, kidney or brain are among the highest risk. Blood cancers, like leukemia and lymphoma, also increase the risk of a blood clot. Surgery already increases blood clot risk, but cancer further increases the risk of blood clots. The combination of cancer, even an indolent lymphoma, and routine surgery imparts about a 6 percent risk of blood clots, which is high enough that routine anticoagulation certainly should be considered. People with cancer should have a discussion with their surgeon about anticoagulation around surgery.. DEAR DR. ROACH: Maybe you will be able to ...
Both Hodgkins lymphoma and non-Hodgkins lymphoma are lymphomas - a type of cancer that begins in a subset of white blood cells called lymphocytes. Lymphocytes are an integral part of your immune system, which protects you from germs.. The main difference between Hodgkins lymphoma and non-Hodgkins lymphoma is in the specific lymphocyte each involves.. A doctor can tell the difference between Hodgkins lymphoma and non-Hodgkins lymphoma by examining the cancer cells under a microscope. If in examining the cells, the doctor detects the presence of a specific type of abnormal cell called a Reed-Sternberg cell, the lymphoma is classified as Hodgkins. If the Reed-Sternberg cell is not present, the lymphoma is classified as non-Hodgkins.. Many subtypes of lymphoma exist, and your doctor will use laboratory tests to examine a sample of your lymphoma cells to determine your specific subtype. Expect to wait a few days to receive results from these specialized tests.. Your type of lymphoma helps ...

The use of high-dose chemotherapy and autologous hematopoietic blood or marrow transplantation for high-risk aggressive non-Hodgkin lymphoma has been extensively evaluated over the past few decades. This treatment was originally used only for patients with relapsed aggressive lymphoma. However, as the patients who were at higher risk for relapse could more easily be identified by clinical features and the technique became safer, it was used in some trials earlier in the course of the disease for higher-risk patients according to the International Prognostic Index (IPI).1. Prior to the addition of rituximab (Rituxan) to standard CHOP (cyclophosphamide, doxorubicin, vincristine, and prednisone), several trials demonstrated an improvement when early transplantation was performed in first remission.2,3 However, there were also conflicting trials that did not demonstrate a benefit for early transplantation in this patient population.4,5 A meta-analysis of these earlier randomized trials demonstrated ...

The cytokine soluble CD23 (sCD23) has been shown to act as a B cell growth factor and to be elevated in serum prior to development of AIDS-related non-Hodgkins lymphoma (AIDS NHL). To further characterize the elevation of serum sCD23 in AIDS NHL patients and investigate its potential as a diagnostic test, a matched case-control study of AIDS NHL (n = 101) was nested within the Multicenter AIDS Cohort Study. Serum sCD23 was measured in cases and controls serum specimens at three different time periods (0-6, 6-12, and 12-18 months) and CD4+ thresholds (0-99, 100-199, and 200-299 cells/microl) prior to the cases NHL diagnosis. Changes in serum sCD23 over time were examined in AIDS NHL cases relative to controls, and t tests were performed to determine whether cases serum sCD23 exceeded that of controls at each time period and CD4+ threshold. Overall, cases median serum sCD23 levels were approximately double those of controls. Serum sCD23 concentration was positively correlated with lymphocyte counts

Background: In 2008, non-Hodgkin lymphoma ranked tenth among other malignancies worldwide with an incidence of around 5 cases per 100,000 in both genders. The latest available rates in Tunisia are from 2006. Materials and Methods: This study aimed to provide an update about NHL incidence for 2009 and its trend between 1998 and 2009 as well as a projection until 2024, using data from the Salah Azaiz Institute hospital registry and the Noth Tunisia cancer registry. Results: In 2009, the NHL incidence in the north of Tunisia was 4.03 cases per 100,000, 4.97 for men and 3.10 for women. Diffuse large B-cell lymphoma (DLBCL) accounted for 63.2% of all NHL subtypes. Between 1998 and 2009, the overall trend showed no significant change. When we compared the trend between two periods (1998-2005 and 2005-2009), joinpoint regression showed a significant decrease of NHL incidence in the first period with an annual percentage change (APC) of -6.7% (95% CI:[-11.2%;-2%]), then the incidence significantly increased

In endometrioid cancer cases, the depth of myometrial invasion, the lymphovascular space invasion (LVSI) and the microcystic, elongated, and fragmented (MELF) glands type of invasion are predictors for a metastasis. Although the intermediate grade papillary endometrioid adenocarcinoma of the endometrium is currently not included in the latest classification of the tumors in the female reproductive system, its existence provokes an interest due to the necessity to perform differential diagnosis against other endometrioid tumors. Hereby presented is a case of papillary endometrioid carcinoma of intermediate grade with invasion in leiomyoma, expressed via LVSI and MELF syndrome with intact myometrium. Morphological and immunohistochemical algorithms have been performed.
Non-Hodgkin lymphoma treatment depends on the type of cancer you have, its stage, your health and your age. If only one lymph node is affected by the tumor, you can definitely be cured by radiotherapy. In advanced non-Hodgkins lymphoma, survival chance decreased considerably. In general, non-Hodgkins lymphoma treatment includes radiotherapy, chemotherapy, biotherapy, and other therapeutic methods such as stem cell transplantation.. Radiotherapy (Radiation therapy) Radiotherapy consists of using high doses of X-rays to kill cancer cells in order to eliminate or shrink the tumor. If the cancer is too advanced to be completely destroyed, radiation therapy can reduce symptoms and prolong your life. In the case of a non aggressive non-Hodgkin lymphoma, radiotherapy combined with chemotherapy can lead to a complete cure in about 50% of cases.. Chemotherapy Chemotherapy is the use of anticancer drugs to kill cancer cells and prevent metastases. Chemotherapy is often used to treat advanced non-Hodgkin ...
Rituximab is a monoclonal antibody approved for treatment of non-Hodgkin lymphomas that targets CD20, an antigen expressed by mature B cells. Single-agent rituximab treatment elicits clinical responses in many patients with non-Hodgkin lymphomas such as follicular lymphoma (FL) and diffuse large B-cell lymphoma (DLBCL), but few treatment options are available for patients who relapse or are refractory to rituximab. Another B-cell antigen, CD22, which is expressed by the vast majority of B-cell cancers but not by lymphocyte precursors or memory B cells, also represents an attractive target for non-Hodgkin lymphoma therapy. Inotuzumab ozogamicin (INO) is a CD22-targeted therapy in which a humanized CD22 antibody is conjugated to calicheamicin, a cytotoxic antibiotic. In a multicenter open-label phase I/II study, Fayad and colleagues evaluated the combination of rituximab and inotuzumab ozogamicin (R-INO) in patients with relapsed FL, relapsed DLBCL, or refractory non-Hodgkin lymphomas. A ...
Non-Hodgkins lymphoma (NHL) remains the second most common malignant complication in patients with human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) infection. As we enter the third decade of the acquired immunodeficiency syndrome (AIDS) epidemic, it is apparent that the evolution of antiretroviral therapy and the emergence of combination antiviral strategies have greatly affected the natural history of HIV infection and its neoplastic complications. For example, there may be a trend for declining incidence of AIDS-related lymphoma in the United States for the first time. However, in regions of the world where the burden of HIV infection is greatest, such as in East Africa, AIDS-related lymphoma is an increasing cause of morbidity and mortality. Treatment of lymphoma has evolved coincident with improvements in antiretroviral therapy. Infusional chemotherapy regimens may offer advantages over other regimens and schedules, but comparative trials have not been done. Clinical trial data are available on which to ...
The Agricultural Health Study investigated the relationship between specific fungicides and pesticides and the development of Non-Hodgkin Lymphoma (NHL) in pesticide applicators, primarily farmers, from North Carolina and Iowa. In a recent article published in PLOS One, health information was analyzed from 54,306 participants enrolled in the study, including 523 applicators who were diagnosed with NHL between 1993 and 2010. Twenty-six different pesticides including insecticides, fungicides and fumigants were investigated to determine if exposure was linked to NHL incidence. Results suggest that exposure to pesticides from many different classes of chemicals was linked to an increased risk of NHL. This study is the first to find a correlation between exposure to the pesticides DDT, lindane, permethrin, diazinon and terbufos with specific types of Non-Hodgkin Lymphoma.. ...

Twelve of 18 patients received a radiation dose of 30 Gy or less. To properly protect the lens during irradiation, the contact lens blocks were ...
Treatment varies depending on the exact type of B or T-cell lymphoma you have, where it has spread in your body and how fast it is likely to grow. Your age and your general health are also taken into account. When deciding how to treat your lymphoma it is important to know how fast it is likely to grow and cause problems in your body. This is called the grade of your lymphoma.. Some types of lymphoma grow slowly, cause few symptoms and may not need to be treated urgently. These are known as indolent lymphomas (also called low-grade lymphomas). Others grow more quickly, cause more severe symptoms and generally need to be treated soon after they are diagnosed. These are known as aggressive lymphomas (also called intermediate-grade and high-grade lymphomas).. Low-grade lymphomas (indolent). Many low-grade lymphomas take years to grow, cause few if any symptoms and do not necessarily need to be treated initially. In these cases the doctor may recommend regular checkups to carefully monitor your ...
Researchers affiliated with the German High-Grade Non-Hodgkin Lymphoma Study Group (DSHNHL) have reported that conventional chemoimmunotherapy was superior to sequential high-dose chemotherapy with autologous stem cell support for the treatment of high-risk patients with aggressive B-cell lymphoma. The details of this randomized study were presented at the 2011 meeting of the American Society of Clinical Oncology.. Non-Hodgkins lymphoma (NHL) is a form of cancer that begins in the cells of the lymph system. The lymph system includes the spleen, thymus, tonsils, bone marrow, lymph nodes, and circulating immune cells. The main cells in the lymph system are lymphocytes, of which there are two types: B- and T-cells. Each cell type has a specific function in helping the body fight infection.. Non-Hodgkins lymphoma is characterized by the excessive accumulation of atypical (cancerous) lymphocytes. These lymphocytes can crowd the lymph system and suppress the formation and function of other immune ...
Fourteen-day CHOP supported with granulocyte colony-stimulating factor in patients with aggressive non-Hodgkins lymphoma: results of a phase II study.
Transformation is the evolution of an indolent lymphoma/leukemia to an aggressive lymphoma, typically harboring a very poor prognosis. This phenomenon is well described in humans , but under-estimated in dogs although recognized as a possible evolution of indolent lymphomas/leukemias. In canine chronic leukemias blast crisis (mainly in myeloid ) and Richter syndrome (transformation into a high grade lymphoma) (mainly in B-cell lymphocytic leukemia) has been reported. Transformation is a possible event also in canine low grade lymphomas, although rare. The increased knowledge has also generated new questions and posed challenges that need to be addressed to improve outcome, including the recognition of the clinical characteristics at diagnosis associated with a higher risk of transformation in an attempt of anticipating the typical evolution.
Lymphomas. Lymphoma is a type of cancer that originates in cells of the lymphatic system. There are many types of lymphomas; however, these tumors are commonly divided into two main categories: Hodgkins and Non-Hodgkins Lymphomas.. Lymphomas are curable if detected early and treatments are well tolerated. Historically, Non-Hodgkins Lymphomas were one of the first cancers cured with Radiation Therapy alone due to its radiation sensitivity.. Non-Hodgkin lymphomas can be further divided into cancers that have an indolent (slow-growing) course and those that have an aggressive (fast-growing) course. These sub-types behave and respond to treatment differently. Both Hodgkin and non-Hodgkin lymphomas can occur in children and adults, and prognosis and treatment depend on the stage and the type of cancer.. Lymphomas Treatment. The management of lymphoma requires a multidisciplinary team as the efforts of the surgeon, the hematologist, and the radiation oncologist must interact in the management of ...
Species: Human Category: Cancer Tissue of Origin: B-cell / Plasma Cell Cancer Type: B-cell Non-Hodgkin Lymphoma Description SK-LY-18 is a human lymphoma cell line. Source This cell line was established from a B-cell in a person with lymphoma
Lymphomas are any cancers of the lymphatic tissues. They are distinguished/classified by the World Health Organization (WHO) system, using the latest information on the appearance and growth pattern of the lymphoma cells and genetic features, including whether or not it is a Hodgkin lymphoma, a T-cell or B-cell lymphoma, and the site from which the lymphoma arises.. Hodgkin lymphoma is marked by the presence of a type of cell called the Reed-Sternberg cell.. Non-Hodgkin lymphomas, which are defined as being all lymphomas except Hodgkin lymphoma, are more common than Hodgkin lymphoma. A wide variety of lymphomas are in this class, and the causes, the types of cells involved, and the prognosis vary by type. The incidence of non-Hodgkin lymphoma increases with age. It is further divided into several subtypes ...

CD19-specific chimeric antigen receptor (CAR)-modified T cells have antitumor activity in B cell malignancies, but factors that affect toxicity and efficacy have been difficult to define because of differences in lymphodepletion and heterogeneity of CAR-T cells administered to individual patients. We conducted a clinical trial in which CD19 CAR-T cells were manufactured from defined T cell subsets and administered in a 1:1 CD4+/CD8+ ratio of CAR-T cells to 32 adults with relapsed and/or refractory B cell non-Hodgkins lymphoma after cyclophosphamide (Cy)-based lymphodepletion chemotherapy with or without fludarabine (Flu). Patients who received Cy/Flu lymphodepletion had increased CAR-T cell expansion and persistence, and higher response rates [50% complete remission (CR), 72% overall response rate (ORR)] than patients who received Cy-based lymphodepletion without Flu (8% CR, 50% ORR). The CR rate in patients treated with Cy/Flu at the maximally tolerated dose was 64% (82% ORR; n = 11). Cy/Flu ...
INTRODUCTION Lymphomas are malignant neoplasms arisen from lymphocytes (B or T) that affect mainly lymph nodes, spleen, and other non-hematopoietic tissues. They are classified as Hodgkin´s lymphoma or non-Hodgkin´s lymphoma.1 Diffuse large B-cell lymphoma (DLBL) is the most common variant of non-Hodgkin´s intermediate-grade lymphomas, and frequently involves extranodal sites. Even though DLBL is characterized by an aggressive behavior, it responds favorably to chemotherapy.2 Non-Hodgkin´s lymphomas are usually manifested as localized or generalized lymphadenopathy. However, the primary lesion can occur in other sites, principally where lymphoid tissue is present such as oropharynx, intestine, bone marrow and skin.3 DLBL is often associated with systemic symptoms such as night sweats, weight loss and fever. In the oral soft tissues, lesions can occur as hard and diffuse tumors involving oral vestibule, gums and the posterior region of the hard palate. In bone tissue, they may cause mild ...
The flvi-2 locus is a target of insertional mutagenesis in thymic lymphosarcomas induced by feline leukemia virus (FeLV). flvi-2 encodes the gene bmi-1, whose product is implicated as a myc-collaborator in the induction of B- and T-cell lymphoma. We have examined the involvement of flvi -2 and myc in natural and experimentally induced FeLV-positive feline lymphosarcomas which are heterogeneous in anatomical origin, geographic origin, and strain of FeLV involved. We further compared these findings with previous reports of novel FeLV env genes in the same tumors. The results show that proviral insertion at flvi-2 occurs commonly in natural and experimental feline thymic lymphosarcomas of diverse origins [52% overall], and that alterations in c-myc commonly accompany insertional mutagenesis of flvi-2 [54% overall]. However, 46% of tumors with flvi-2 insertions apparently lack involvement of c-myc. These observations support the hypothesis that interruption of flvi-2 may be an early event in a ...
The treatment of non-Hodgkin lymphoma (NHL) patients has been recently informed by several important studies, which were discussed at the Best of ASCO Boston meeting by Michael E. Williams, MD, of the University of Virginia Cancer Center in Charlottesville.. Bendamustine Outperforms R-CHOP in NHL In a presentation at this years ASCO Annual Meeting Plenary Session, German investigators reported that in the phase III Study Group Indolent Lymphomas (StiL) NHL1 trial, the combination of bendamustine (Treanda) plus rituximab (Rituxan), or BR, more than doubled the median progression-free survival vs standard treatment with R-CHOP (rituximab, cyclophosphamide, doxorubicin, vincristine, prednisone) and proved more tolerable as well in patients with NHL.1 While B-R has been a recommended treatment option by the National Comprehensive Cancer Network since the initial study data were announced in 2009, many U.S. oncologists have not yet utilized the regimen.. The updated StiL NHL1 results will likely ...

Hodgkins disease was the primary lymphoma to be defined as early as 1832 by Prof. Hodgkins. Over the years, non-Hodgkins lymphoma has become quite common. In the United States, it is estimated that 69,000 new cases and 19,000 deaths from non-Hodgkins lymphoma will occur yearly. It has not been pursued in detail as of now, and there are many points still in the dark.. Many doctors adopt a waiting policy where they inspect the patient patiently before coming to a practical conclusion. It is diagnosed (Understanding a Lymphoma Diagnosis) by biopsy through needle insertion. In severe manifestations, the whole part containing affected lymph nodes needs to be taken out. A combination treats it of radiation and chemotherapy. The logic is to retain the white blood cells to grow and multiply. Since it is an immune system-specific disease, immunotherapy or boosting the immune system is deemed the best antidote.. Stem cell transplant that has its precepts on DNA strands is also quite active but highly ...

Between January 2001 and December 2013, all patients (n= 19) that underwent surgical management for primary DLBL were identified from a retrospective database. All data of the clinical and pathological features were reviewed retrospectively. Gastrointestinal intestinal DLBL satisfied the lymphoma definition of Lewin et al. [7]. A total of 19 patients were included in this study, of which 69 were extranodal type of Non-Hodgkin lymphoma patients, 25 were gastrointestinal lymphoma and 21 were primary gastrointestinal DLBCL patients. Of these patients, a total of 19 patients were included in the study, excluding 2 patients who underwent palliative surgery during chemotherapy (Fig. 1). All patients underwent surgery and adjuvant chemotherapy using cyclophosphamide, hydroxydaunorubicin, oncovin, and prednisolone (CHOP) or rituximab CHOP (R-CHOP) regimens except postoperative mortality. All patients underwent gastroduodenoscopy, colonoscopy, and a biopsy, staging scans (computed tomography scan of the ...
Non-Hodgkin lymphomas (NHLs) in the head and neck region are malignant lymphoid neoplasms that usually originate from B-lymphocytic cell lines. Primary extranodal manifestations of this hematolymphoid tumor in the oral cavity are rare and involve the maxillary jaw including the palatal soft tissues, the mandible, and gingival tissues in patients between 60 and 70 years of age without sex predilection. This case report of an extra nodal NHL in the palate of a 75-year-old patient emphasizes the importance of accurate clinical, radiographic, and histologic diagnostic procedures to avoid delayed diagnosis or inappropriate treatment strategies. Chemotherapy, radiotherapy, or a combination of the two with a regular clinical and hemic follow-up is recommended. (Quintessence Int 2010;41:93 97 ...
Mantle-Cell Lymphoma: A form of non-Hodgkin lymphoma having a usually diffuse pattern with both small and medium lymphocytes and small cleaved cells. It accounts for about 5% of adult non-Hodgkin lymphomas in the United States and Europe. The majority of mantle-cell lymphomas are associated with a t(11;14) translocation resulting in overexpression of the CYCLIN D1 gene (GENES, BCL-1).
