RESUMO

OBJECTIVE: To explore the effect of myrica flavone on male reproductive toxicity induced by cyclophosphamide and its mechanism. METHODS: Thirty 6-week-old male ICR mice were randomly divided into 5 groups: blank control group, cyclophosphamide reproductive injury model group, myricetin low-medium high-dose intervention group. Except the blank control group, the other groups were intraperitoneally injected with cyclophosphamide 50 mg/kg daily for 7 consecutive days. The myricetin group received intragastric administration of 100, 200, and 400 mg/kg myricetin daily for 30 consecutive days since the second day of modeling. The blank control group and the model control group were given an equal volume of a 0. 25% sodium carboxymethyl cellulose solution. The body weight was measured every 3 days, and the day after the last administration, the mice were sacrificed by cervical dislocation, and the epididymis and testes were quickly taken. Testicular weighing, testicular index calculation, epididymis to obtain sperm, sperm analyzer to analyze sperm density and vitality. The expression of Bax and Bcl-2 in testicular tissues was detected by immunoblotting, and the mitochondrial membrane potential of sperm was detected by flow cytometry. RESULTS: After 9 days of modeling, the weight of mice in the model group was lower than that of the blank control group, which was statistically different(P<0. 05). There was no difference between the myricetin treatment group and the model group. The testis index of the model group was(3. 93±0. 91)mg/g, which was significantly lower than that of the blank control group(6. 93±0. 98)mg/g, and the difference was statistically significant(P<0. 05). After treatment with bayberry flavonoids, the testis index increased, in the 100 and 200 groups and 400 mg/kg testis index were(3. 94±1. 21) mg/g, (4. 33±0. 88) mg/g, and(4. 80±0. 43) mg/g, respectively. Compared with model control group, The difference was statistically significant(P<0. 05 and P<0. 01). Compared with the control group, the sperm density, sperm rate of forward movement, sperm rate of non-forward movement, and decreased sperm rate of non-moving sperm increased in the model group. After treatment with bayberry flavonoids, compared with the model group, the sperm density, sperm rate of forward motion, and sperm rate of non-forward motion increased, and the immobility sperm rate decreased. The 200 and 400 mg/kg groups had statistical significance(P<0. 05 or P<0. 01); the normal rate of sperm mitochondrial membrane potential in the model group was(54. 70±5. 45)%, and the normal mitochondrial membrane potential rate after treatment with myricetin of 100, 200 and 400 mg/kg(59. 10±9. 97)%, (62. 10±6. 07)% and(77. 10±8. 87)%, of which the 400 mg/kg group was statistically significant(P<0. 05); the ratio of Bax/Bcl-2 in the model group was 5. 92±1. 45, and the ratio of Bax/Bcl-2 decreased after treatment with myricetin of 100, 200 and 400 mg/kg, which were 2. 52±0. 51, 1. 71±0. 52 and 1. 07±0. 29. There were statistical differences(P<0. 05 or P<0. 01). CONCLUSION: Myrica flavone can protect sperm mitochondrial membrane potential, inhibit testicular cell apoptosis, and protect the male mice from reproductive toxicity induced by cyclophosphamide.

RESUMO

Over the past 30 years, the scientific community has made little progress in changing the natural history of peripheral T-cell lymphomas. Of the haematological malignancies, T-cell lymphomas have an extremely poor prognosis. One reason for this poor outcome has been that no treatment programme has ever been developed specifically for the broader category of the disease-peripheral T-cell lymphoma-let alone any of the specific subtypes, except advances made for patients with CD30-positive anaplastic large cell lymphoma. Decades of effort have focused on retrofitting chemotherapy programmes used for other diseases, such as CHOP (cyclophosphamide, doxorubicin, vincristine, and prednisone) for diffuse large B-cell lymphoma, which have not been associated with much progress, and have universally produced far more toxicity than benefit. A remarkable heterogeneity, a paucity of cases, and the absence of peripheral T-cell lymphoma-specific drugs, until recently at least, have limited the field's ability to make substantive and innovative advances. Over the past few years, however, it appears the field is beginning to make progress. Lineage and disease-specific novel-to-novel platforms are producing, although perhaps not unsurprisingly, compelling results suggesting that the path to a cure for this rare orphan disease might be heading in a different direction.

RESUMO

INTRODUCTION: Hemophagocytic lymphohistiocytosis (HLH) is a condition characterized by a hyperinflammatory state and persistent macrophage activation, resulting in reactive phagocytosis of the hematopoietic elements. In children, it is usually a hereditary disorder, while in adults it is usually acquired secondary to viral infections, collagenoses, or tumors. Although accounting for 10% of hematologic malignancies, HLH is rarely associated with multiple myeloma (MM) and other plasmacytic dyscrasias. PATIENT CONCERNS: A 64-year-old Brazilian man seeked medical care with a 3-month history of intermittent fever, weight loss, night sweats, and progressive anemic symptoms. DIAGNOSIS: Total blood count showed severe bicytopenia (normocytic-normochromic anemia and thrombocytopenia), biochemical exams showed elevation of creatinine, as well as monoclonal peak in serum protein electrophoresis, high IgA dosage, and serum immunofixation with IgA kappa paraprotein. Bone marrow biopsy showed 30% of monoclonal and phenotypically anomalous plasmocytes, confirming the diagnosis of MM. Diagnosis of HLH was established by the presence of clinical and laboratory criteria: fever, splenomegaly, cytopenias, hypofibrinogenemia, hyperferritinemia, elevation of triglycerides, and several figures of erythrophagocytosis in bone marrow aspirate. INTERVENTIONS: The patient experienced pulse therapy with methylprednisolone for hemophagocytic lymphohistiocytosis, followed by initial therapy for multiple myeloma with cyclophosphamide and dexamethasone. OUTCOMES: Once the diagnosis of MM and secondary hemophagocytic syndrome was established, the patient had a rapid clinical deterioration despite the established therapeutic measures, evolving with cardiovascular failure, acute liver failure, acute disseminated intravascular coagulation, worsening renal dysfunction requiring dialysis support, respiratory dysfunction, and lowering of consciousness, characterizing rapid multiple organ dysfunction, ultimately leading to the death of the patient. INNOVATION: Here, we aimed to describe the sixth reported case of HLH associated with MM, according to cases cataloged in the PubMed database, and the first case evaluated by 18-fluordeoxyglucose positron emission tomography (18-FDG-PETCT). CONCLUSION: Our case report seeks to provide support for a better clinical and laboratory characterization of this rare paraneoplastic entity associated with MM, and aims to call the attention of hematologists and intensivists to this condition that falls within the scope of the differential diagnosis of rapid onset multiple organ failure in patients with plasmacytic neoplasms.

RESUMO

RATIONALE: The Goodpasture syndrome is an extremely rare disease, with renal and pulmonary manifestations, and is mediated by anti-glomerular basement membrane (anti-GBM) antibodies. Renal pathological changes are mainly characterized by glomerular crescent formation and linear immunofluorescent staining for immunoglobulin G on the GBM. There are few reports on the atypical course of the syndrome involving serum-negative anti-GBM antibodies. Therefore, we present a case of Goodpasture syndrome that presented with nephrotic-range proteinuria and was seronegative for anti-GBM antibodies. PATIENT CONCERNS: A 38-year-old Chinese man presented with a lung lesion that was discovered by physical examination a month prior to presentation. The chief concern was occasional hemoptysis without fever, cough, chest pain, and edema. DIAGNOSES: Laboratory testing revealed that the urinary protein level and urine erythrocyte count were 7.4 g/24 hours and 144/high-power field (HPF), respectively. Serological testing for anti-GBM antibodies was negative. Chest computed tomography revealed multiple exudative lesions in both lungs, indicating alveolar infiltration and hemorrhage. Electronic bronchoscopy and pathological examination of the alveolar lavage fluid indicated no abnormalities. However, kidney biopsy suggested cellular crescent formation and segmental necrosis of the globuli, with linear IgG and complement C3 deposition on the GBM. These findings were consistent with the diagnosis of anti-GBM antibody nephritis. INTERVENTIONS: The patient underwent 7 sessions of double filtration plasmapheresis. He was also administered with intravenous methylprednisolone and cyclophosphamide. After renal function stabilization, he was discharged under an immunosuppressive regimen comprising of glucocorticoids and cyclophosphamides. OUTCOMES: Three months later, follow-up examination revealed that the 24-hour urine protein had increased to 13 g. Furthermore, the urine erythrocyte count was 243/HPF. After a 6-month follow-up, the patient achieved partial remission, with a proteinuria level of 3.9 g/24 hours and a urine erythrocyte count of 187/HPF. LESSONS: This extremely rare case of Goodpasture syndrome manifested with seronegativity for anti-GBM antibodies and nephrotic-range proteinuria. Our findings emphasize the importance of renal biopsy for the clinical diagnosis of atypical cases. Furthermore, because renal involvement achieved only partial remission despite therapy, early detection and active treatment of the Goodpasture syndrome is necessary to improve the prognosis of patients.

RESUMO

The induction therapy containing ixazomib, an oral proteasome inhibitor, has shown favorable efficacy and safety in clinical trials, but its experience in real-life remains limited. In routine practice, few patients received ixazomib-based induction therapy due to reasons including (1) patients' preference on oral regimens, (2) concerns on adverse events (AEs) of other intravenous/subcutaneous regimens, (3) requirements for less center visits, and (4) fears of COVID-19 and other infectious disease exposures. With the aim of assessing the real-life effectiveness and safety of ixazomib-based induction therapy, we performed this multi-center, observational study on 85 newly diagnosed multiple myeloma (NDMM) patients from 14 medical centers. Ixazomib-based regimens included ixazomib-lenalidomide-dexamethasone (IRd) in 44.7% of patients, ixazomib-dexamethasone (Id) in 29.4%, and Id plus another agent (doxorubicin, cyclophosphamide, thalidomide, or daratumumab) in 25.9%. Different ixazomib-based therapies were applied due to (1) financial burdens or limitations on local health insurance coverage, (2) concerns on treatment tolerance, and (3) drug accessibility issue. Ten patients received ixazomib maintenance. The median age was 67 years; 43.5% had ISS stage III disease; 48.2% had an Eastern Cooperative Oncology Group performance score ≥ 2; and 17.6% with high-risk cytogenetic abnormalities. Overall response rate for all 85 patients was 95.3%, including 65.9% very good partial response or better and 29.5% complete responses. The median time to response was 30 days. The response rate was similar across different ixazomib-based regimens. Median progression-free survival was not reached. Severe AEs (≥ grade 3) were reported in 29.4% of patients. No grade 3/4 peripheral neuropathy (PN) occurred. Patients received a median of 6 (range 1-20) cycles of ixazomib treatment; 56.6% remained on treatment at data cutoff; 15.3% discontinued treatment due to intolerable AEs. These results support that the ixazomib-based frontline therapy was highly effective with acceptable toxicity in routine practice and the ixazomib oral regimens could be good alternative options for NDMM patients.

RESUMO

Metronomic chemotherapy, giving low doses of chemotherapeutics (e.g., docetaxel) on a frequent schedule over a long time, may improve outcomes and reduce side effects for cancer patients. Oral medications are vital for applying metronomic chemotherapy. However, low solubility, low absorption, low drug availability in the targeted tissue, and side effects limit the development of oral chemotherapeutics. Many chemotherapeutics are intravenously delivered. In this work, we developed a new docetaxel granule that produces docetaxel-loaded in situ self-assembled nanoparticle (180 nm) upon contact with water. The process of manufacturing docetaxel granules is scalable in industrial settings. The lung selectivity of docetaxel granule was observed in animals. The mechanistic studies demonstrated the nanoparticle bound with red blood cells, which selectively delivers docetaxel to the lungs. Finally, docetaxel granule (5 mg/kg twice per week) can profoundly inhibit the tumor growth of lung-metastatic cancer xenograft model over 24 days. The material-based lungselective oral nanoformulation provides an opportunity for conventionally intravenous chemotherapy drugs to be easily applied in oral administration for metronomic chemotherapy for cancer patients with lung cancers.

RESUMO

The photocatalytic activity of two bio-based polymer photocatalysts [poly(ethylene terephthalate)-TiO2 (PET-TiO2) and poly(L-lactic acid)-graphene oxide-TiO2 (PLLA-GO-TiO2)] towards Tamoxifen (TAM), Cyclophosphamide (CP), Cytarabine (CYT) and 5-Fluorouracil (5-FLU) removal was explored and compared. The highest photocatalytic activity for the degradation of the cytostatic drugs was accomplished by PET-TiO2. Among the contaminants, TAM was the most easily removed, requiring 90 min for complete elimination, while CP showed the highest resistance to photocatalysis, not being completely removed after 6 h. Liquid chromatography coupled with high-resolution mass spectrometry analysis was employed for the identification of several transformation products (TPs) and potential pathways were proposed. A total of seventy (70) TPs including thirty-four (34) novel ones detected in AOPs were identified. The ecotoxicity of the mixture of the cytostatic drugs and TPs formed during the photocatalytic treatment was evaluated using Daphnia magna assay and was associated with the occurrence of specific TPs during the treatment process. The follow-up ECOSAR (Ecological Structure Activity Relationship) analysis further elucidated that only minor chemical transformations, such as the hydroxylation or the oxidative opening of an aromatic ring system, could hamper the adverse effects of cytostatic drugs in aquatic species. Such a comparative study on the mixture toxicity of cytostatics and their TPs is presented for the first time.

RESUMO

BACKGROUND: Preferred neoadjuvant regimens for early-stage triple-negative breast cancer (TNBC) include anthracycline-cyclophosphamide and taxane-based chemotherapy. IMpassion031 compared efficacy and safety of atezolizumab versus placebo combined with nab-paclitaxel followed by doxorubicin plus cyclophosphamide as neoadjuvant treatment for early-stage TNBC. METHODS: This double-blind, randomised, phase 3 study enrolled patients in 75 academic and community sites in 13 countries. Patients aged 18 years or older with previously untreated stage II-III histologically documented TNBC were randomly assigned (1:1) to receive chemotherapy plus intravenous atezolizumab at 840 mg or placebo every 2 weeks. Chemotherapy comprised of nab-paclitaxel at 125 mg/m2 every week for 12 weeks followed by doxorubicin at 60 mg/m2 and cyclophosphamide at 600 mg/m2 every 2 weeks for 8 weeks, which was then followed by surgery. Stratification was by clinical breast cancer stage and programmed cell death ligand 1 (PD-L1) status. Co-primary endpoints were pathological complete response in all-randomised (ie, all randomly assigned patients in the intention-to-treat population) and PD-L1-positive (ie, patients with PD-L1-expressing tumour infiltrating immune cells covering ≥1% of tumour area) populations. This study is registered with ClinicalTrials.gov (NCT03197935), Eudra (CT2016-004734-22), and the Japan Pharmaceutical Information Center (JapicCTI-173630), and is ongoing. FINDINGS: Between July 7, 2017, and Sept 24, 2019, 455 patients were recruited and assessed for eligibility. Of the 333 eligible patients, 165 were randomly assigned to receive atezolizumab plus chemotherapy and 168 to placebo plus chemotherapy. At data cutoff (April 3, 2020), median follow-up was 20·6 months (IQR 8·7-24·9) in the atezolizumab plus chemotherapy group and 19·8 months (8·1-24·5) in the placebo plus chemotherapy group. Pathological complete response was documented in 95 (58%, 95% CI 50-65) patients in the atezolizumab plus chemotherapy group and 69 (41%, 34-49) patients in the placebo plus chemotherapy group (rate difference 17%, 95% CI 6-27; one-sided p=0·0044 [significance boundary 0·0184]). In the PD-L1-positive population, pathological complete response was documented in 53 (69%, 95% CI 57-79) of 77 patients in the atezolizumab plus chemotherapy group versus 37 (49%, 38-61) of 75 patients in the placebo plus chemotherapy group (rate difference 20%, 95% CI 4-35; one-sided p=0·021 [significance boundary 0·0184]). In the neoadjuvant phase, grade 3-4 adverse events were balanced and treatment-related serious adverse events occurred in 37 (23%) and 26 (16%) patients, with one patient per group experiencing an unrelated grade 5 adverse event (traffic accident in the atezolizumab plus chemotherapy group and pneumonia in the placebo plus chemotherapy group). INTERPRETATION: In patients with early-stage TNBC, neoadjuvant treatment with atezolizumab in combination with nab-paclitaxel and anthracycline-based chemotherapy significantly improved pathological complete response rates with an acceptable safety profile.

RESUMO

BACKGROUND/AIM: Adult T-cell leukemia/lymphoma (ATLL) is a relatively refractory CD4-positive peripheral T-cell lymphoma. VCAP-AMP-VECP (mLSG15) is one of the standard chemotherapeutic regimens for patients with aggressive ATLL. Mogamulizumab (moga), a monoclonal antibody for C-C chemokine receptor 4 antigen expressed on the cell surface, has recently been poised for use as monotherapy and in combination with chemotherapy. However, to date, a significant survival benefit has not been obtained with the combination of moga + mLSG15 therapy. PATIENTS AND METHODS: We retrospectively analyzed 77 patients diagnosed with aggressive ATLL. Of them, 22 were treated with moga + a chemotherapy regimen comprised of etoposide, vincristine, doxorubicin, cyclophosphamide, and prednisolone (EPOCH), 16 with moga + mLSG15, and 39 with chemotherapy alone. RESULTS: A risk reduction of approximately 30% was obtained with moga + EPOCH compared with moga + mLSG15. CONCLUSION: The addition of moga to chemotherapy did not result in a survival benefit compared with chemotherapy alone. However, a statistically significant overall survival benefit was observed in patients with moga-induced skin disorders.

RESUMO

OBJECTIVES: Both intravenous (IV) and oral (PO) cyclophosphamide (CYC) showed beneficial effects on skin and lung involvement in systemic sclerosis (SSc) in placebo-controlled randomised clinical trials and observational studies. Our goal was to compare the relative efficacy and safety of PO- versus IV-CYC for treating interstitial lung disease and/or skin involvement in SSc. METHODS: Patients were derived from the EUSTAR centres and the Scleroderma Lung Studies I and II. A minimum of 6 months of CYC treatment and 12 months follow-up were required. Serious (SAEs) and non-serious adverse events and efficacy data (change in FVC%, DLCO%, mRSS) were analysed at the end of CYC treatment (EoT) and at follow-up (FU). Analysis included descriptive statistics and linear regressions. RESULTS: Differences in ethnicity, previous DMARD exposure, previous and concomitant steroid exposure/dosage were observed in the PO (n=149) and IV (n=153) CYC groups. Adjusted and unadjusted changes in FVC%, DLCO% and mRSS were similar irrespective of mode of administration. PO patients had more leukopenia (p<0.001), haemorrhagic cystitis (p=0.011) and alopecia (p<0.001) at the EoT visit, while the IV group had more SAEs (p=0.025) and need for oxygen supplementation at FU (p=0.049). CONCLUSIONS: In a comparison of PO- to IV-CYC for SSc, we found no differences in lung function or cutaneous sclerosis after one year. Some differences in side effects were seen. The results need to be considered as preliminary; however, because we needed to use a combination of RCT and registry data, with some differences in demographics and concomitant medications, well-controlled studies are warranted.

RESUMO

BACKGROUD: Mycophenolate mofetil (MMF) has been recommended for the treatment of lupus nephritis (LN). Although inter-racial differences exist regarding the appropriate dose and efficacy of MMF in patients with LN, no definitive meta-analysis has yet been conducted in Chinese patients. This analysis investigated the efficacy and safety of MMF in Chinese patients with proliferative LN. METHODS: A systematic literature search was conducted to select randomized controlled trials that reported at least one of the following: complete remission (CR), partial remission, total remission (TR; defined as complete remission + partial remission), relapse rate, serum creatinine, creatinine clearance, end-stage renal disease, death, infections, amenorrhea, leukopenia, alopecia, gastrointestinal symptoms, or liver damage. RESULTS: Eighteen trials (927 patients) were included; 14 (750 patients) reported CR, partial remission, and TR. Two trials (58 patients) reported relapse rates during maintenance treatment. MMF induction significantly improved CR and TR vs cyclophosphamide (relative risk 1.34, 95% confidence interval: 1.13-1.58; P < .001; relative risk 1.16, 95% confidence interval: 1.02-1.33; P = .03), and was associated with significantly lower risks of infection (P < .001), amenorrhea (P < .001), leukopenia, and alopecia. No significant difference in relapse rate was evident between the MMF and azathioprine groups (P = .66). CONCLUSION: According to this meta-analysis of 18 trials, MMF is significantly more effective than cyclophosphamide induction, and is associated with reduced incidences of infections, amenorrhea, leukopenia, and alopecia in Chinese patients with proliferative LN.

RESUMO

Objective - to study the ability of N-oxide-2,6-dimethylpyridine to modify the cytogenetic effects in mouse bone marrow cells caused by an alkylating antitumor cytostatic cyclophosphamide.; The cytogenetic activity and mutagen-modifying effect of the plant growth regulator N-oxide-2,6-dimethylpyridine (Ivin) were studied by the method of accounting for chromosomal aberrations in the bone marrow cells of CD-1 mice (males) with a single joint exposure to cyclophosphamide. In the first variant of the research, Ivin was administered single orally in the form of an aqueous solution at doses of 710, 71, 7.1, 0.7, and 0.07 mg/kg bw, which corresponds to 1/2, 1/20, 1/200, 1/2000 and 1/20000 from LD50. In the second variant - Ivin was administered together with Cyclophosphamide (Ivin - in the same way as in the first research variant, cyclophosphamide was administered intraperitoneally at a dose of 40 mg/kg bw the same as the positive control group). Intact animals (negative control group) were orally administered purified, UV-sterilized, deionized water.; It was shown that with isolated administration of Ivin in the studied doses did not show mutagenic activity. When combined with Cyclophosphamide, Ivin at a dose of 710 mg/kg bw did not induce the frequency of metaphases with chromosome aberrations and at a dose of 71 mg/kg bw reduced the frequency of metaphases with chromosome aberrations by 1.8 times in comparison with the positive control. In both of these dose groups, Ivin reduced the number of chromatid-type aberrations and polyploid cells but increased the number of multi-aberrant cells. This is probably due to the additional chemical load and physicochemical state of the Ivin molecule. When combined with Cyclophosphamide, Ivin at low dose levels (7.1, 0.7 and 0.07 mg/kg bw) significantly reduced the frequency of metaphases with chromosome aberrations (by 55.7%, 62.9% и 72.9%, respectively), the amount of chromatid-type aberrations, polyploid, and multi-aberrant cells. This may be due to the gene protective effect of Ivin, because of the stabilization of membranes and its antioxidant effect.

RESUMO

BACKGROUND: In adults with active lupus nephritis, the efficacy and safety of intravenous belimumab as compared with placebo, when added to standard therapy (mycophenolate mofetil or cyclophosphamide-azathioprine), are unknown. METHODS: In a phase 3, multinational, multicenter, randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled, 104-week trial conducted at 107 sites in 21 countries, we assigned adults with biopsy-proven, active lupus nephritis in a 1:1 ratio to receive intravenous belimumab (at a dose of 10 mg per kilogram of body weight) or matching placebo, in addition to standard therapy. The primary end point at week 104 was a primary efficacy renal response (a ratio of urinary protein to creatinine of ≤0.7, an estimated glomerular filtration rate [eGFR] that was no worse than 20% below the value before the renal flare (pre-flare value) or ≥60 ml per minute per 1.73 m2 of body-surface area, and no use of rescue therapy), and the major secondary end point was a complete renal response (a ratio of urinary protein to creatinine of <0.5, an eGFR that was no worse than 10% below the pre-flare value or ≥90 ml per minute per 1.73 m2, and no use of rescue therapy). The time to a renal-related event or death was assessed. RESULTS: A total of 448 patients underwent randomization (224 to the belimumab group and 224 to the placebo group). At week 104, significantly more patients in the belimumab group than in the placebo group had a primary efficacy renal response (43% vs. 32%; odds ratio, 1.6; 95% confidence interval [CI], 1.0 to 2.3; P = 0.03) and a complete renal response (30% vs. 20%; odds ratio, 1.7; 95% CI, 1.1 to 2.7; P = 0.02). The risk of a renal-related event or death was lower among patients who received belimumab than among those who received placebo (hazard ratio, 0.51; 95% CI, 0.34 to 0.77; P = 0.001). The safety profile of belimumab was consistent with that in previous trials. CONCLUSIONS: In this trial involving patients with active lupus nephritis, more patients who received belimumab plus standard therapy had a primary efficacy renal response than those who received standard therapy alone.

RESUMO

Immunosuppressive therapies increase the susceptibility of patients to infections. The current pandemic with severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2) compels clinicians to develop recommendations for successful clinical management and surveillance of immunocompromised patients at high risk for severe disease progression. With only few case studies published on SARS-CoV-2 infection in patients with rheumatic diseases, we report a 25-year-old male who developed moderate coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) with fever, mild dyspnea, and no major complications despite having received high-dose prednisolone, cyclophosphamide, and rituximab for the treatment of highly active, life-threatening eosinophilic granulomatosis with polyangiitis (EGPA).

RESUMO

RATIONALE: Follicular non-Hodgkin lymphoma (fNHL) is a neoplasm characterized by an indolent course and chemosensitivity, but also by disease recurrence. Bendamustine is often used as frontline treatment or second line. HEADING DIAGNOSIS:: fNHL. PATIENT CONCERNS: A 63-year-old Caucasian male with diagnosis of fNHL lymphoma underwent to cyclophosphamide, doxorubicin, vincristine, and prednisone associated with rituximab chemoimmunotherapy, during which interim reevaluation showed progressive disease and severe toxicity. INTERVENTIONS: Early switch to rituximab-bendamustine. OUTCOMES: This regimen was well tolerated, patient compliance was optimal, there were no delays in administration and no infectious episodes. An interim reevaluation after 3 courses revealed that the patient was fit, the blood cell count was normal, and lymphadenopathies and nocturnal sweating had completely regressed. Of note, the PET/CT scan did not show fluorodeoxyglucose pathological uptake, clearly confirming disease regression. LESSONS: Early switching to a bendamustine-rituximab-based scheme, even during conventional chemotherapy, decreases toxicity and reduces the risk of treatment interruption or delay, with favorable effects on overall response and prognosis.

RESUMO

BACKGROUND: Lupus nephritis (LN) remains a predominant cause of morbidity and mortality in SLE. Here we performed a meta-analysis to evaluate the efficacy and safety of the induction treatment with mycophenolate mofetil (MMF) and cyclophosphamide (CYC) for LN. METHODS: Relevant literature was searched by computer from the establishment of the database to November 2019. A meta-analysis was conducted to analysis the efficacy and safety between mycophenolate mofetil and cyclophosphamide as induction therapy in LN patients. The primary end-point was response to urine protein, serum creatinine (Scr) and serum complement C3, and the secondary end-points were complete remission and adverse reactions. RESULTS: Eighteen articles were selected for the final meta-analysis, involving 1989 patients with LN, of which the renal biopsy result could be classified into class III-V according to the standards of WHO/ISN. The results revealed that MMF was superior to CYC in increasing the level of serum complement C3 [SMD = 0.475, 95%CI (0.230-0.719)] and complete remission [RR = 1.231, 95%CI (1.055-1.437)]. Furthermore, the subgroup analysis showed that it was in Asian patients, rather than in Caucasian patients, that CYC exerted a better effect on lowering the level of urine protein (UPRO) than MMF [SMD = 0.405, 95%CI (0.081-0.730)]. Besides, when the initial UPRO level was less than 4 g/day, the effect of CYC was better than MMF [SMD = 0.303, 95%CI (0.014-0.591)]. There was no significant difference between MMF and CYC in improving Scr [SMD = 0.090, 95%CI (-0.060-0.239)]. When it came to the comparison of safety between MMF and CYC, the meta-analysis showed that MMF was superior to CYC in decreasing infection in Caucasian patients [RR = 0.727, 95%CI (0.532-0.993)], reducing the risk of leukopenia and menstrual abnormalities in Asian patients and lowering the frequency of gastrointestinal symptoms [RR = 0.639, 95%CI (0.564-0.724)], independent of race. CONCLUSIONS: MMF precedes CYC in improving serum complement C3 and complete remission regardless of race, as well as shows fewer adverse drug reactions in the induction treatment of LN belonging to type III-V. But for Asian patients or those initial UPRO levels are less than 4 g/day, CYC may be superior to MMF.

RESUMO

Limited data are available regarding treatment patterns, healthcare resource utilization (HCRU), treatment costs and clinical outcomes for patients with diffuse large B-cell lymphoma (DLBCL) in Japan. This retrospective database study analyzed the Medical Data Vision database for DLBCL patients who received treatment during the identification period from October 1 2008 to December 31 2017. Among 6,965 eligible DLBCL patients, 5,541 patients (79.6%) received first-line (1L) rituximab (R)-based therapy, and then were gradually switched to chemotherapy without R in subsequent lines of therapy. In each treatment regimen, 1L treatment cost was the highest among all lines of therapy. The major cost drivers i.e. total direct medical costs until death or censoring across all regimens and lines of therapy were from the 1L regimen and inpatient costs. During the follow-up period, DLBCL patients who received a 1L R-CHOP regimen achieved the highest survival rate and longest time-to-next-treatment, with a relatively low mean treatment cost due to lower inpatient healthcare resource utilization and fewer lines of therapy compared to other 1L regimens. Our retrospective analysis of clinical practices in Japanese DLBCL patients demonstrated that 1L treatment and inpatient costs were major cost contributors and that the use of 1L R-CHOP was associated with better clinical outcomes at a relatively low mean treatment cost.

RESUMO

INTRODUCTION: The kidney is one of the common extraglandular sites involved in primary Sjögren syndrome (pSS), with chronic tubulointerstitial nephritis (TIN) the most common pathology type. Renal involvement in pSS often presents as chronic TIN accompanied by type 1 or 2 renal tubular acidosis (RTA). Description of renal involvement as acute TIN with type III RTA in pSS has been rarely reported. PATIENT CONCERNS: A 37-year-old woman was admitted with complaints of dry mouth, dry eyes, and progressive muscle weakness for 17 months. Two months before admission, the patient had a blood potassium level of 1.7 mmol/L. DIAGNOSIS: Further tests confirmed pSS and type III RTA. Renal biopsy demonstrated acute TIN and thin basement membrane nephropathy (TBMN). INTERVENTIONS: Full-dose corticosteroid (1 mg/kg/day) and cyclophosphamide (100 mg/day) were applied. OUTCOMES: The creatinine levels of the patient decreased 0.28 mg/dL (1.18-0.90 mg/dL) during 3-month follow-up. CONCLUSIONS: We reported a patient with pSS-associated kidney injury, presenting as acute TIN with type 3 RTA and TBMN. This case increases the awareness of a rare manifestation of pSS-associated kidney injury. In pSS-associated acute TIN, cyclophosphamide combined with full-dose corticosteroids may achieve good outcomes.

RESUMO

Lymphoma (lymphosarcoma) is the second most frequent cancer in dogs and is clinically comparable to human non-Hodgkin lymphoma. Factors affecting canine lymphoma progression are unknown and complex, but there is evidence that genetic mutations play an important role. We employed Next Gen DNA sequencing of six dogs with multicentric B-cell lymphoma undergoing CHOP chemotherapy to identify genetic variations potentially impacting response. Paired samples from non-neoplastic tissue (blood mononuclear cells) and lymphoma were collected at the time of diagnosis. Cases with progression free survival above the median of 231 days were grouped as 'good' responders and cases below the median were categorized as 'poor' responders. The average number of variants found was 17,138 per case. The variants were filtered to examine those with predicted moderate or high impacts. Many of the genes with variants had human orthologs with links to cancer, but the majority of variants were not previously reported in canine or human lymphoma. Seven genes had variants found in the cancers of at least two 'poor' responders but in no 'good' responders: ATRNL1, BAIAP2L2, ZNF384, ST6GALNAC5, ENSCAFG00000030179 (human ortholog: riboflavin kinase RFK), ENSCAFG00000029320, and ENSCAFG00000007370 (human ortholog: immunoglobin IGKV4-1). Two genes had variants found in the cancers of at least two 'good' responders but in no 'poor' responders: COX18 and ENSCAFG00000030512. ENSCAFG00000030512 has no reported orthologue in any other species. The role of these mutations in the progression of canine lymphoma requires further functional analyses and larger scale study.
