RESUMO

BACKGROUND/AIM: Dose-dense doxorubicin and cyclophosphamide (ddAC) followed by dose-dense paclitaxel (ddP) (ddAC-P) has improved disease-free survival of patients with breast cancer. The aim of this study was to evaluate the safety and relative dose intensity (RDI) of ddAC-P administered together with pegfilgrastim. PATIENTS AND METHODS: Between May 2015 and Aug 2017, 44 patients were retrospectively reviewed; they were administered 4 cycles of ddAC, followed by 4 cycles of ddP. Pegfilgrastim (3.6 mg) was administered in every cycle. RESULTS: The mean RDIs for ddAC-P, ddAC, and ddP were 95.0%, 94.5%, and 93.3%, respectively. The prevalence of high RDIs (≥85%) for ddAC-P, ddAC, and ddP was 90.9%, 84.1%, and 88.6%, respectively. Seven of the 10 patients with low RDIs experienced grade 1 or 2 fever. CONCLUSION: DdAC-P administered together with pegfilgrastim (3.6 mg) appears to be feasible and maintains RDI in most of Japanese patients with breast cancer. Rapid evaluation and proper management of fever may prevent low RDI.

RESUMO

BACKGROUND: Data regarding the efficacy of treatment with ibrutinib-rituximab, as compared with standard chemoimmunotherapy with fludarabine, cyclophosphamide, and rituximab, in patients with previously untreated chronic lymphocytic leukemia (CLL) have been limited. METHODS: In a phase 3 trial, we randomly assigned (in a 2:1 ratio) patients 70 years of age or younger with previously untreated CLL to receive either ibrutinib and rituximab for six cycles (after a single cycle of ibrutinib alone), followed by ibrutinib until disease progression, or six cycles of chemoimmunotherapy with fludarabine, cyclophosphamide, and rituximab. The primary end point was progression-free survival, and overall survival was a secondary end point. We report the results of a planned interim analysis. RESULTS: A total of 529 patients underwent randomization (354 patients to the ibrutinib-rituximab group, and 175 to the chemoimmunotherapy group). At a median follow-up of 33.6 months, the results of the analysis of progression-free survival favored ibrutinib-rituximab over chemoimmunotherapy (89.4% vs. 72.9% at 3 years; hazard ratio for progression or death, 0.35; 95% confidence interval [CI], 0.22 to 0.56; P<0.001), and the results met the protocol-defined efficacy threshold for the interim analysis. The results of the analysis of overall survival also favored ibrutinib-rituximab over chemoimmunotherapy (98.8% vs. 91.5% at 3 years; hazard ratio for death, 0.17; 95% CI, 0.05 to 0.54; P<0.001). In a subgroup analysis involving patients without immunoglobulin heavy-chain variable region (IGHV) mutation, ibrutinib-rituximab resulted in better progression-free survival than chemoimmunotherapy (90.7% vs. 62.5% at 3 years; hazard ratio for progression or death, 0.26; 95% CI, 0.14 to 0.50). The 3-year progression-free survival among patients with IGHV mutation was 87.7% in the ibrutinib-rituximab group and 88.0% in the chemoimmunotherapy group (hazard ratio for progression or death, 0.44; 95% CI, 0.14 to 1.36). The incidence of adverse events of grade 3 or higher (regardless of attribution) was similar in the two groups (in 282 of 352 patients [80.1%] who received ibrutinib-rituximab and in 126 of 158 [79.7%] who received chemoimmunotherapy), whereas infectious complications of grade 3 or higher were less common with ibrutinib-rituximab than with chemoimmunotherapy (in 37 patients [10.5%] vs. 32 [20.3%], P<0.001). CONCLUSIONS: The ibrutinib-rituximab regimen resulted in progression-free survival and overall survival that were superior to those with a standard chemoimmunotherapy regimen among patients 70 years of age or younger with previously untreated CLL.

RESUMO

PURPOSE: The optimal dose intensity for conditioning prior to allogeneic hematopoietic stem cell transplantation (alloHSCT) for chronic lymphocytic leukemia (CLL) is unknown. METHODS: We retrospectively compared outcomes of patients who received a first alloHCST after non-myeloablative (NMA) and reduced intensity conditioning (RIC). Data of 432 patients with a median age of 55 years were included, of which 86 patients underwent NMA and 346 RIC. RESULTS: The median follow-up after alloHSCT was 4.3 years. Compared to the RIC group, more NMA patients had purine-analog-sensitive disease, were in complete remission and received matched related donor transplantation. After RIC, the probabilities for 5-year OS, EFS, CIR, and NRM were 46%, 38%, 28%, and 35% and after NMA the respective probabilities were 52%, 43%, 25%, and 32%. In multivariate analysis, remission status prior to conditioning but not RIC versus NMA conditioning had a significant impact on CIR, EFS, and OS. CONCLUSION: Presumed higher anti-leukemic activity of RIC versus NMA conditioning did not translate into better outcomes after alloHSCT, but better remission status prior to conditioning did. Effective pathway inhibitor-based salvage therapies combined with NMA conditioning might thus represent the most attractive contemporary approach for alloHSCT for patients with CLL.

RESUMO

PURPOSE: Combinations of bortezomib (Velcade), cyclophosphamide and dexamethasone have shown significant efficacy and safety for patients of newly diagnosed multiple myeloma (NDMM). In this study, we compared the efficacy and safety of modified VCD regimens with novel changes in bortezomib dose and schedule for NDMM. METHODS: Eighty-five NDMM patients from multiple centers were randomly assigned to a high-dose (1.6 mg/m2) (group A) or a low-dose (1.3 mg/m2) (group B) bortezomib, administrated on days 1, 6, 11, and 16 subcutaneously in a 4-week cycle for nine cycles, combined with 40 mg dexamethasone on bortezomib days and cyclophosphamide 300 mg/m2 on days 1-3 intravenously. RESULTS: After four cycles, complete response (CR) or better in group A (43.6%) was higher than that in group B (12.8%) (P = 0.002). During induction, for patients with R-ISS stage III, the CR or better rate in group A was superior to that in group B (P = 0.01). Of patients < 65, the CR or better rate of group A was superior to that of group B (P = 0.004). Rapid onset of CR occurred in group A (P < 0.01). Meanwhile, rate of 3-4 diarrhea was higher in group A (P = 0.03), which caused higher rate of dose reduction for patients ≥ 65 (P = 0.041). No significant difference between the two groups in PFS and OS. CONCLUSIONS: The studied high-dose VCD as induction regimen had an improved CR rate, especially in patients < 65 or with R-ISS stage III, and is feasible for young and high-risk patients. Trial registration ClinicalTrials.gov: NCT02086942.

RESUMO

De novo CD5-positive diffuse large B-cell lymphoma (CD5+ DLBCL) is increasingly recognized as a distinct pathologic phenomenon with a specific clinical picture. However, CD5+ DLBCL has not been studied on a large scale in China. In this study, we show that CD5+ DLBCL occurs at a low frequency (9.2%). Comparison of clinical characteristics of CD5+ vs CD5- DLBCL showed that CD5+ DLBCL was more frequently elderly (>60 years) and had B symptoms, high-performance status, stage III-IV, an IPI score >2 and bone marrow involvement. Patients with CD5+ DLBCL had tumours with a higher prevalence of BCL-2 and p53 overexpression than CD5- DLBCL. Patients with CD5+ DLBCL had inferior progression-free survival (PFS) and overall survival (OS) than did patients with CD5- DLBCL. For CD5+ DLBCL, the patients who were treated with rituximab showed significantly better PFS and OS than those treated without rituximab. However, patients treated with RCHOP showed similar PFS and OS when compared with the group treated with intensive therapy. In addition, patients with p53 and CD5 co-expression had the worst PFS and OS. In conclusion, CD5+ DLBCL was associated with unfavorable clinicopathologic variables and with inferior survival. CD5+ DLBCL has a high frequency of p53 overexpression, and CD5 augments the negative effect of p53 overexpression in DLBCL.

RESUMO

BACKGROUND: Prolonged fever (PF) is a challenging problem for physicians since it can be the first manifestation of a large variety of pathologies. Exceptionally, intra-cardiac thrombus (ICT) could explain PF and reveal Behçet's disease (BD). We are reporting a 45-year-old man with BD who has these unusual manifestations. CASE REPORT: A 45-year-old man presented with PF and inflammatory biological syndrome during a few months. Echocardiography showed an inhomogeneous and mobile mass in the left auricle. During his hospitalization, the patient had multiple oral aphtosis. The angioscanner showed a sacciform aneurysm of the coeliac trunk. The diagnosis of BD was retained and he was treated with high doses of steroids and cyclophosphamide with a favorable follow-up. CONCLUSION: The search for BD should be systematic in view of any suggestive manifestation of severe cardiovascular complications like ICT especially in a young adult man from a high endemicity region.

RESUMO

BACKGROUND: Fludarabine, cyclophosphamide, and rituximab (FCR) can improve disease-free survival for younger (age ≤65 years) fit patients with chronic lymphocytic leukaemia with mutated IGHV. However, patients with unmutated IGHV rarely have durable responses. Ibrutinib is active for patients with chronic lymphocytic leukaemia irrespective of IGHV mutation status but requires continuous treatment. We postulated that time-limited ibrutinib plus FCR would induce durable responses in younger fit patients with chronic lymphocytic leukaemia. METHODS: We did a multicentre, open-label, non-randomised, single-arm phase 2 trial at seven sites in the USA. We enrolled patients aged 65 years or younger with previously untreated chronic lymphocytic leukaemia. Our initial cohort (original cohort) was not restricted by prognostic marker status and included patients who had del(17p) or TP53 aberrations. After a protocol amendment (on March 21, 2017), we enrolled an additional cohort (expansion cohort) that included patients without del(17p). Ibrutinib was given orally (420 mg/day) for 7 days, then up to six 28-day cycles were administered intravenously of fludarabine (25 mg/m2, days 1-3), cyclophosphamide (250 mg/m2, days 1-3), and rituximab (375 mg/m2 day 1 of cycle 1; 500 mg/m2 day 1 of cycles 2-6) with continuous oral ibrutinib (420 mg/day). Responders continued on ibrutinib maintenance for up to 2 years, and patients with undetectable minimal residual disease in bone marrow after 2 years were able to discontinue treatment. The primary endpoint was the proportion of patients who achieved a complete response with undetectable minimal residual disease in bone marrow 2 months after the last cycle of ibrutinib plus FCR. Analyses were done per-protocol in all patients who received at least one dose of study treatment. This trial is registered with ClinicalTrials.gov (NCT02251548) and is ongoing. FINDINGS: Between Oct 23, 2014, and April 23, 2018, 85 patients with chronic lymphocytic leukaemia were enrolled. del(17p) was detected in four (5%) of 83 patients and TP53 mutations were noted in three (4%) of 81 patients; two patients had both del(17p) and TP53 mutations. Median patients' age was 55 years (IQR 50-58). At data cutoff, median follow-up was 16·5 months (IQR 10·6-34·1). A complete response and undetectable minimal residual disease in bone marrow 2 months after the last cycle of ibrutinib plus FCR was achieved by 28 (33%, 95% CI 0·23-0·44) of 85 patients (p=0·0035 compared with a 20% historical value with FCR alone). A best response of undetectable minimal residual disease in bone marrow was achieved by 71 (84%) of 85 patients during the study. One patient had disease progression and one patient died (sudden cardiac death after 17 months of ibrutinib maintenance, assessed as possibly related to ibrutinib). The most common all-grade toxic effects were haematological, including thrombocytopenia in 63 (74%) patients, neutropenia in 53 (62%), and anaemia in 41 (49%). Grade 3 or 4 non-haematological serious adverse events included grade 3 atrial fibrillation in three (4%) patients and grade 3 Pneumocystis jirovecii pneumonia in two (2%). INTERPRETATION: The proportion of patients who achieved undetectable minimal residual disease in bone marrow with ibrutinib plus FCR is, to our knowledge, the highest ever published in patients with chronic lymphocytic leukaemia unrestricted by prognostic marker status. Ibrutinib plus FCR is promising as a time-limited combination regimen for frontline chronic lymphocytic leukaemia treatment in younger fit patients.

RESUMO

Objective: To assess the efficacy and safety of tocilizumab and cyclophosphamide in patients with Takayasu arteritis (TA). Methods: Twenty-seven TA patients treated with tocilizumab (TCZ group) and 22 treated with cyclophosphamide (CTX group) were enrolled and retrospectively analyzed. The duration of treatment was 6 months. Disease activity and side effects were compared between the two groups. Results: After treatment, the median C-reactive protein (CRP), erythrocyte sedimentation rate (ESR) and disease activity scores in TCZ group were significantly lower than those in CTX group respectively [ESR 3 mm/1h vs. 8 mm/1h; CRP 0.13 mg/L vs. 1.09 mg/L; National Institutes of Health (NIH) score 0(0,1) vs. 0(1,1); the Indian Takayasu clinical activity score (ITAS 2010) 0(0,2) vs. 2(0,3.5), and the Indian Takayasu activity score with the acute phase response (ITAS-A) 0(0,2) vs. 2.5(0,3.5); all P<0.05]. The daily prednisone doses before treatment and after treatment in TCZ group were significantly lower than those in CTX group [(20.1±15.9) mg/d vs. (39.3±16.7) mg/d;(5.1±4.2)mg/d vs. (12.1±4.6) mg/d,both P<0.05)].The incidence of drug-related side effects in TCZ group was significantly lower than that in CTX group, which was 22.2% vs. 54.5% (P<0.05). Conclusion: Compared with CTX treatment, TCZ treatment for TA with less prednisone has better efficacy and safety.

RESUMO

Pneumocystis jirovecii (P. jirovecii) causes a potentially fatal pneumonia in immunocompromised individuals (Pneumocystis pneumonia or PcP), particularly in HIV-infected patients and those treated with immunosuppressive drugs, such as transplant patients and those with systemic autoimmune diseases. P. jirovecii colonization can be found in almost a third of patients with systemic autoimmune diseases. Although the incidence of PcP in such patients is usually low, mortality is quite high, ranging between 30% and 50% in the majority of autoimmune diseases. PcP development is almost always observed in patients not receiving prophylaxis for the infection. Despite the above, there are no clinical guidelines established for PcP prophylaxis in patients with autoimmune diseases treated with glucocorticoids, cytotoxic drugs, or more recently, biological agents. The objective of this review is to analyze the available data on the incidence of PcP and the effect of PcP prophylaxis in patients with autoimmune diseases that may be useful in clinical practice


El hongo Pneumocystis jirovecii (P. jirovecii) es la causa de una neumonía (Pneumocystis pneumonia o PcP) potencialmente mortal en individuos inmunodeprimidos, sobre todo en pacientes infectados por el VIH, y en aquellos tratados con fármacos inmunodepresores, como los sometidos a trasplantes y los afectos de enfermedades autoinmunes sistémicas. En estos últimos, alrededor de un tercio de los casos puede estar colonizado por P. jirovecii y, aunque la incidencia de la PcP suele ser baja, la mortalidad de la misma es considerablemente alta, y oscila entre el 30 y el 50% en la mayoría de las enfermedades autoinmunes. El desarrollo de la PcP se observa casi siempre en pacientes que no reciben profilaxis para la infección. Aun así, no existen guías clínicas establecidas para la profilaxis de la PcP en pacientes afectos de enfermedades autoinmunes que son tratados con glucocorticoides, fármacos citotóxicos o más recientemente, con agentes biológicos. El objetivo de esta revisión es analizar los datos disponibles sobre la incidencia de la PcP y el efecto de la profilaxis para infección por P. jirovecii en los pacientes afectos de enfermedades autoinmunes que puedan ser útiles en la práctica clínica

RESUMO

The efficacy of programmed cell death protein 1 (PD-1) blockade in metastatic triple-negative breast cancer (TNBC) is low1-5, highlighting a need for strategies that render the tumor microenvironment more sensitive to PD-1 blockade. Preclinical research has suggested immunomodulatory properties for chemotherapy and irradiation6-13. In the first stage of this adaptive, non-comparative phase 2 trial, 67 patients with metastatic TNBC were randomized to nivolumab (1) without induction or with 2-week low-dose induction, or with (2) irradiation (3 × 8 Gy), (3) cyclophosphamide, (4) cisplatin or (5) doxorubicin, all followed by nivolumab. In the overall cohort, the objective response rate (ORR; iRECIST14) was 20%. The majority of responses were observed in the cisplatin (ORR 23%) and doxorubicin (ORR 35%) cohorts. After doxorubicin and cisplatin induction, we detected an upregulation of immune-related genes involved in PD-1-PD-L1 (programmed death ligand 1) and T cell cytotoxicity pathways. This was further supported by enrichment among upregulated genes related to inflammation, JAK-STAT and TNF-α signaling after doxorubicin. Together, the clinical and translational data of this study indicate that short-term doxorubicin and cisplatin may induce a more favorable tumor microenvironment and increase the likelihood of response to PD-1 blockade in TNBC. These data warrant confirmation in TNBC and exploration of induction treatments prior to PD-1 blockade in other cancer types.

RESUMO

Peripheral neuroectodermal tumors (PNET) of the kidney are extremely rare. They are often diagnosed at a late stage due to their nonspecific clinical presentation. Treatment of patients with metastases is based on palliative chemotherapy. We here report a case of PNET of the kidney with sudden onset of metastases to the lymph nodes and to the skin. The patient showed good clinical and radiological response and experienced progression-free survival at 6 years after polychemotherapy with vincristine, doxorubicin and cyclophosphamide.

RESUMO

RATIONALE: Anti-IgLON5 disease is a complex neurological illness which is characterized by progressive sleep and movement disorders and defined by specific autoantibodies to IgLON5. We here describe the first case of a patient with coexisting anti-IgLON5 as well as anti-γ-aminobutyric acid B (GABAB)-receptor antibodies and predominant clinical features of anti-IgLON5 disease. PATIENT CONCERNS: The patient initially presented with subacute symptoms of severe sleep disorder, gait stability, dysarthria, cognitive impairment, depressive episode and hallucinations. DIAGNOSES: The patient was diagnosed with autoimmune encephalitis, based on clinical features and positive anti-IgLON5 antibodies in serum as well as in cerebrospinal fluid and anti-GABAB-receptor antibodies in serum only. INTERVENTIONS: Initially, the patient was treated with high dosages of methylprednisolone and subsequently with plasmapheresis. Due to the lack of clinical improvement immunosuppressive treatment with intravenous cyclophosphamide was initiated. OUTCOMES: Following the first year of cyclophosphamide treatment, neurological examination revealed an improvement in gait instability, visual and acoustic hallucinations and sleep disorder. LESSONS: The case report demonstrates that anti-IgLON5 and anti-GABAB-receptor antibodies can coexist in the same patient whereas clinical leading symptoms are determined by those antibodies that were tested positive in cerebrospinal fluid.

RESUMO

BACKGROUND: The aim of this investigation was to study the effects of supervised combined intermittent aerobic, muscle strength and home-based walking training programs on cardiorespiratory fitness in women with breast cancer during adjuvant chemotherapy treatment. METHODS: Thirty-two women with breast cancer undertaking adjuvant chemotherapy participated in the study (trained group n=20 and control group n=12). The trained group carried out 6weeks of supervised intermittent cycling aerobic, muscle strength and home-based walking training programs. The self-selected walking speed (WS), walking distance covered (WD), heart rate (rHR), blood lactate ([La]b) concentration and rating of perceived exertion (RPE) were assessed in the two groups during the 6-min walking test before and after the training period. RESULTS: Compared to controls, a significant increase in the WS (P<0.01) and the WD (P<0.01) accompanied by a significant decrease in resting rHR (P<0.01), exercising HR6' (P<0.01), [La]b (P<0.05), HR6'/WS (P<0.01) and [La]b/WS ratios (P<0.01) was reported in the trained group. However, a significant decrease both in WD (P<0.01) and WS (P<0.01) has been observed in the controls. No significant difference was observed in resting HR, exercising HR6', [La]b, HR6'/WS, and [La]b/WS ratios were observed in the control group. A significant improvement was observed for RPE in training group (P<0.05). However, no difference was shown in controls. CONCLUSION: Combined training based on intermittent aerobic exercise, muscle strength and walking improve cardiorespiratory responses and reduce the perception of fatigue in women with breast cancer.

RESUMO

A 67-year-old male was transferred to our hospital with diplopia, decreased deep tendon reflex and ataxia. He had been suspected Fisher syndrome because of previous upper respiratory tract infection. A cerebrospinal fluid examination showed marked hypoglycorrhachia, pleocytosis and elevated protein, and cytological examination suggested malignant lymphoma. Abdominal computed tomography revealed a left adrenal mass. A biopsy of the left adrenal mass revealed diffuse large B-cell lymphoma. He was treated with a combination of R-CHOP (rituximab, cyclophosphamide, doxorubicin hydrochloride, oncovin and prednisolone) and intrathecal administration of methotrexate, cytarabine and prednisolone. Neurological symptoms were gradually improved. Malignancy should be considered in addition to bacterial, fungal or tuberculous meningitis in a case with marked hypoglycorrhachia.

RESUMO

OBJECTIVE: Introduction: Cyclophosphamide has wide spectrum usage as first-line drug in cancer chemotherapy that is why a detailed study of its effect on individual cell populations is of great interest for science and practice. The interaction of the nervous, immune and endocrine systems plays essential role in the homeostasis maintaining. The aim: This study aimed to investigate the ultramicroscopic changes that occur in the parathyroid glands and thymus of male rats after cyclophosphamide administration. PATIENTS AND METHODS: Materials and methods: Twenty-four WAG matured male rats were divided randomly into two groups. The first group served as control and was provided 0.9% soluble sodium chloride. The second group received cyclophosphamide in a dosage 200 mg/kg of body weight of animal by intramuscular single injection. All animals were sacrificed on the 7th and 30th day after injection. Parathyroid gland and thymus specimens were dissected out and processed for electron microscopy. RESULTS: Results: The results showed that cyclophosphamide exposure caused marked ultramicroscopic changes in rats parathyroid glands and thymus. On the 7th day after immunosuppression, the nuclei of parathyrocytes have deep wavy invaginations, amount of the organelles that participate in the protein synthesis is reduced to a minimum in the cytoplasm of the chief cells. Characteristic feature is the appearance of numerous plasma cells and active macrophages in thymus. There is a tendency to normalization of the parathyroid structure on the 30th day after administration of cyclophosphamide and reduction of mitotic activity of lymphocytes in thymus, which points to the development of involution process. CONCLUSION: Conclusions: This data can be successfully extrapolated from experimental animals to humans.

RESUMO

BACKGROUND: Anthracycline dose optimisation in the treatment of diffuse large B-cell lymphoma has rarely been tested. We aimed to find out whether R-CEOP70 was non-inferior to R-CHOP50 with less cardiotoxicity, and whether R-CEOP90 had a superior efficacy to R-CHOP50 or R-CEOP70 with acceptable toxic effects. METHODS: In this multicentre, phase 3, randomised, controlled study (NHL-001), patients with newly diagnosed diffuse large B-cell lymphoma or follicular lymphoma grade 3B were enrolled from 20 centres of the Multicenter Hematology-Oncology Programs Evaluation System in China. Young patients (16-60 years) were randomly assigned 1:1:1 (block size of six) to six courses of R-CHOP50, R-CEOP70, or R-CEOP90, and older patients (61-80 years) were assigned 1:1 (block size of four) to R-CHOP50 or R-CEOP70. Patients were randomly assigned using computer-assisted permuted-block randomisation. Investigators and patients were not masked to treatment assignment. In the R-CHOP50 group, patients were given rituximab 375 mg/m2 intravenously on day 0, cyclophosphamide 750 mg/m2, doxorubicin 50 mg/m2, and vincristine 1·4 mg/m2 (maximum dose 2 mg) intravenously on day 1, and prednisone 60 mg/m2 (maximum dose 100 mg) orally from day 1-5; in the R-CEOP70 group, epirubicin 70 mg/m2 replaced doxorubicin; and in the R-CEOP90 group, high dose epirubicin 90 mg/m2 replaced doxorubicin. All patients received two additional courses of rituximab 375 mg/m2 intravenously every 21 days. Consolidation radiotherapy was given to patients with bulky disease at diagnosis or residual disease at the end of treatment. The primary endpoint was 2-year progression-free survival. The non-inferiority margin for R-CEOP70 versus R-CHOP50 was defined by hazard ratio [HR] as the upper limit of its 95% CI being no greater than 1·50. Analysis of efficacy and safety were of the intention-to-treat population. This study is registered with ClinicalTrials.gov, number NCT01852435. FINDINGS: From May 15, 2013, to March 16, 2016, a total of 648 patients were enrolled, including 404 (62%) young patients (R-CHOP50 [n=135], R-CEOP70 [n=134], or R-CEOP90 [n=135]), and 244 (38%) older patients (R-CHOP50 [n=122] or R-CEOP70 [n=122]). Four patients were excluded from the study for consent withdrawal and one patient for misdiagnosis before treatment. The 2-year progression-free survival in the R-CHOP50 group was 72·5% (95% CI 66·6-77·6) and in the R-CEOP70 group was 72·4% ([66·5-77·5]; HR 1·00 [0·73-1·38]; p=0·99). The non-inferiority was met and adverse events were similar between the two groups. Fewer patients in the R-CEOP70 group (14 [13%] of 110) presented with over 10% decrease in left ventricular ejection fraction (LVEF) than those in the R-CHOP50 group (31 [29%] of 108) at 3 years after remission. For young patients, the 2-year progression-free survival in the R-CEOP90 group was 88·8% (82·1-93·1) and was significantly improved compared with the R-CHOP50 group (75·9% [67·7-82·3]; 0·44 [0·25-0·76]; p=0·0047) and the R-CEOP70 group (77·4% [69·4-83·7%]; 0·49 [0·27-0·86]; p=0·017). Grade 3-4 neutropenia occurred more frequently in the R-CEOP90 group (97 [72%] of 134) than in the R-CHOP50 group (87 [65%] of 133) and R-CEOP70 group (84 [63%] of 133) in young patients but without further increase of clinically significant infections. Fewer patients in the R-CEOP70 group (7 [11%] of 66) and in the R-CEOP90 group (10 [13%] of 79) presented with more than 10% decrease in LVEF than those in the R-CHOP50 group (17 [26%] of 66) at 3 years after remission. INTERPRETATION: R-CEOP70 could serve as an alternative regimen to R-CHOP50 with mild long-term cardiotoxicity. Young patients with diffuse large B-cell lymphoma might benefit from high-dose epirubicin. Epirubicin is an alternative drug to doxorubicin in regular R-CHOP with mild long-term cardiotoxicity.
