RESUMO

Mantle cell lymphoma (MCL) has historically been an aggressive disease with poor long-term survival. In the last decade, Bruton tyrosine kinase (BTK) inhibition has emerged as a new treatment strategy for MCL, especially in the relapsed/refractory (r/r) setting. Zanubrutinib, a second-generation BTK inhibitor, was approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) in late 2019 for r/r MCL on the basis of combined overall response rate of 84% in a total of 118 patients from two multicenter clinical trials, BGB-3111-AU-003 and BGB-3111-206. Duration of response was 14-18 months. Although 57% of patients developed grade 3 and 4 adverse side effects including anemia, pneumonia and neutropenia, only 8% discontinued treatment suggesting zanubrutinib monotherapy was fairly well tolerated. As compared to first-generation ibrutinib, zanubrutinib has higher BTK selectivity which may result in fewer off-target effects and improved potential for combination with other targeted therapies. In addition to a confirmatory phase III trial, there are multiple ongoing studies evaluating zanubrutinib as part of two- and three-drug regimens in MCL and other B-cell malignancies. These current results and areas of further interest indicate an exciting future for zanubrutinib in the treatment of MCL.

RESUMO

In clinical trials of tofacitinib for rheumatoid arthritis (RA), Japanese and Korean patients had higher incidence of herpes zoster (HZ) than subjects from elsewhere; however, post-market data from Asia are lacking. Hence, we investigated the incidence of HZ and its risk factors in Taiwanese RA patients receiving tofacitinib. At a medical center in Taichung, Taiwan, we enrolled patients with active RA treated with tofacitinib between January 4, 2015 and December 9, 2017, following unsuccessful methotrexate therapy and no tofacitinib exposure RA patients as a control group. Demographic characteristics, interferon-gamma levels, and lymphocyte counts were compared. Among 125 tofacitinib-treated RA patients, 7 developed HZ, an incidence rate of 3.6/100 person-years. Patients with HZ had shorter disease duration than those without, but higher frequency of prior HZ. Baseline interferon-gamma levels and HLA-DR activated T cell counts were positively correlated and significantly lower in patients with HZ than without. Strikingly, 5/7 HZ cases occurred within 4 months of starting tofacitinib therapy. Incidence of HZ in tofacitinib-treated Taiwanese RA patients is lower than rates in Japan or Korea, and commensurate with the global average. HZ may occur soon after commencing tofacitinib therapy. The role of interferon-gamma and activated T cells in tofacitinib-related HZ deserves further investigation.

RESUMO

RATIONALE: Antimelanoma differentiation-associated gene 5 antibody (anti-MDA5 Ab)-positive clinically amyopathic dermatomyositis (cADM) is frequently complicated with interstitial lung disease (ILD) and has a poor prognosis. Although the short-term prognosis of anti-MDA5 Ab-positive cADM is poor, it has been suggested that the recurrence rate is not higher than that of anti-MDA5 Ab-negative dermatomyositis. Combination therapy with corticosteroids, calcineurin inhibitors, and cyclophosphamide is the gold standard for the remission induction therapy at the onset. Recently, it has been reported that tofacitinib (TOF) could be effective for refractory anti-MDA5 Ab-positive cADM with ILD. Although initial remission induction therapy has been established, therapeutic strategies for relapse cases have not yet been established. PATIENT CONCERNS: A 57-year-old woman who was diagnosed with anti-MDA5 Ab-positive cADM complicated with ILD. In October 2016, she was treated with prednisolone (PSL), tacrolimus (TAC), and cyclophosphamide (CY). These treatments were successful, and PSL could be tapered. However, she developed strong nausea and general fatigue as adverse events of CY. In April 2018, PSL was discontinued, and maintenance therapy was given with TAC. In July 2018, Gottron's sign and ILD recurred. Skin lesions on the finger were partially ulcerated and ILD was also worsening. We proposed a remission reinduction therapy including CY. However, she was rejected CY from experience with past adverse event of CY. DIAGNOSIS: Based on skin lesions and chest computed tomography (CT) findings, the diagnosis was a recurrence of anti-MDA5 Ab-positive cADM with ILD. INTERVENTIONS: Treatment by TOF 10 mg and PSL 22.5 mg (0.5 mg/kg equivalent) was introduced in November 2018. OUTCOMES: After introducing TOF and PSL, her skin lesions and chest CT findings of ILD gradually improved. Six months after the induction of TOF, the skin ulcer was epithelialized. One year after the introduction of TOF, PSL was decreased to 9 mg, and the disease activity did not re-exacerbate. LESSONS: This case report is the first report suggesting the effectiveness of TOF for recurrent case of anti-MDA5 Ab-positive cADM with ILD. TOF might be an effective therapeutic option for treating recurrent case of anti-MDA5 Ab-positive cADM.

RESUMO

INTRODUCTION: Nilotinib is a selective inhibitor of the BCR-ABL tyrosine kinase receptor and is used in the management of chronic myelogenous leukemia (CML). Nilotinib therapy at high doses is associated with elevated serum bilirubin levels. If the serum bilirubin level exceeds 3 times the upper limit of normal, the recommendation is to either adjust nilotinib dosage or temporarily discontinue the treatment. However, it is unclear whether hyperbilirubinemia indicates obvious liver histology damage. PATIENT CONCERNS: A 24-year-old man with confirmed CML was treated with nilotinib therapy and developed hyperbilirubinemia after the treatment. Although the first remission of the hyperbilirubinemia was achieved after dose adjustment, the hematological parameters deteriorated. Thus, we initiated an antineoplastic therapy (at the standard dose) until complete remission of the CML was achieved. The pathogenic mechanism of hyperbilirubinemia may be related to the inhibition of uridine diphosphate-glucuronosyltransferase (UGT1A1) activity. Liver histological analysis revealed no significant liver damage. In addition, the patient had no family history of hyperbilirubinemia and liver disease. DIAGNOSIS: The patient was admitted to our hospital under the diagnosis of hyperbilirubinemia, and histopathology by liver biopsy showed no obvious damage. We also detected a UGT1A1 mutation [ex1 c.686C > A (p.Pro229Gln)] in the patient and his mother. INTERVENTIONS: When the nilotinib dose was decreased to 300 mg daily, the total bilirubin (TBIL) level decreased to 30 to 50 µmol/L for 1 month. However, because the Bcr-Abl/Abl ratio did not correspond to the major molecular response (MMR; <0.1%), the nilotinib dose was readjusted to 400 mg daily. One week later, the TBIL and indirect bilirubin levels increased to 89 and 79 µmol/L, respectively. The levels of alanine transaminase and other liver functional indicators were normal. OUTCOMES: A Naranjo Adverse Drug Reaction (ADR) Probability Scale score of 13 indicates that hyperbilirubinemia is attributed to ADR caused by nilotinib rather than by drug-induced liver injury. CONCLUSION: Although reducing the nilotinib dose can alleviate the occurrence of hyperbilirubinemia, the effect of MMR is also reduced. Treatment of CML without dose adjustment or discontinuation of nilotinib therapy may be more advantageous.

RESUMO

Evasion of programmed cell death represents a critical form of oncogene addiction in cancer cells. Understanding the molecular mechanisms underpinning cancer cell survival despite the oncogenic stress could provide a molecular basis for potential therapeutic interventions. Here we explore the role of pro-survival genes in cancer cell integrity during clonal evolution in non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC). We identify gains of MCL-1 at high frequency in multiple independent NSCLC cohorts, occurring both clonally and subclonally. Clonal loss of functional TP53 is significantly associated with subclonal gains of MCL-1. In mice, tumour progression is delayed upon pharmacologic or genetic inhibition of MCL-1. These findings reveal that MCL-1 gains occur with high frequency in lung adenocarcinoma and can be targeted therapeutically.

RESUMO

BACKGROUND: Circulating tumour DNA (ctDNA) testing might provide a current assessment of the genomic profile of advanced cancer, without the need to repeat tumour biopsy. We aimed to assess the accuracy of ctDNA testing in advanced breast cancer and the ability of ctDNA testing to select patients for mutation-directed therapy. METHODS: We did an open-label, multicohort, phase 2a, platform trial of ctDNA testing in 18 UK hospitals. Participants were women (aged ≥18 years) with histologically confirmed advanced breast cancer and an Eastern Cooperative Oncology Group performance status 0-2. Patients had completed at least one previous line of treatment for advanced breast cancer or relapsed within 12 months of neoadjuvant or adjuvant chemotherapy. Patients were recruited into four parallel treatment cohorts matched to mutations identified in ctDNA: cohort A comprised patients with ESR1 mutations (treated with intramuscular extended-dose fulvestrant 500 mg); cohort B comprised patients with HER2 mutations (treated with oral neratinib 240 mg, and if oestrogen receptor-positive with intramuscular standard-dose fulvestrant); cohort C comprised patients with AKT1 mutations and oestrogen receptor-positive cancer (treated with oral capivasertib 400 mg plus intramuscular standard-dose fulvestrant); and cohort D comprised patients with AKT1 mutations and oestrogen receptor-negative cancer or PTEN mutation (treated with oral capivasertib 480 mg). Each cohort had a primary endpoint of confirmed objective response rate. For cohort A, 13 or more responses among 78 evaluable patients were required to infer activity and three or more among 16 were required for cohorts B, C, and D. Recruitment to all cohorts is complete and long-term follow-up is ongoing. This trial is registered with ClinicalTrials.gov, NCT03182634; the European Clinical Trials database, EudraCT2015-003735-36; and the ISRCTN registry, ISRCTN16945804. FINDINGS: Between Dec 21, 2016, and April 26, 2019, 1051 patients registered for the study, with ctDNA results available for 1034 patients. Agreement between ctDNA digital PCR and targeted sequencing was 96-99% (n=800, kappa 0·89-0·93). Sensitivity of digital PCR ctDNA testing for mutations identified in tissue sequencing was 93% (95% CI 83-98) overall and 98% (87-100) with contemporaneous biopsies. In all cohorts, combined median follow-up was 14·4 months (IQR 7·0-23·7). Cohorts B and C met or exceeded the target number of responses, with five (25% [95% CI 9-49]) of 20 patients in cohort B and four (22% [6-48]) of 18 patients in cohort C having a response. Cohorts A and D did not reach the target number of responses, with six (8% [95% CI 3-17]) of 74 in cohort A and two (11% [1-33]) of 19 patients in cohort D having a response. The most common grade 3-4 adverse events were raised gamma-glutamyltransferase (13 [16%] of 80 patients; cohort A); diarrhoea (four [25%] of 20; cohort B); fatigue (four [22%] of 18; cohort C); and rash (five [26%] of 19; cohort D). 17 serious adverse reactions occurred in 11 patients, and there was one treatment-related death caused by grade 4 dyspnoea (in cohort C). INTERPRETATION: ctDNA testing offers accurate, rapid genotyping that enables the selection of mutation-directed therapies for patients with breast cancer, with sufficient clinical validity for adoption into routine clinical practice. Our results demonstrate clinically relevant activity of targeted therapies against rare HER2 and AKT1 mutations, confirming these mutations could be targetable for breast cancer treatment.

RESUMO

Ibrutinib-based therapy represents a recent success in managing high-risk CLL patients with 17p/TP53 deletion. However, a subset of CLL patients are resistant to therapy. Deletion of lipoprotein lipase (LPL) has been postulated as a potential evasion mechanism to ibrutinib-based therapy. In this study, we assessed for LPL deletion by fluorescence in situ hybridization in 176 consecutive CLL patients with 17p/TP53 deletion. LPL deletion was detected in 35 (20%) of CLL patients. Patients with LPL deletion (del) showed a higher frequency of CD38 expression but have comparable frequencies of somatic hypermutation and ZAP-70 expression compared with patients with normal (nml) LPL. Gene mutation analysis showed that TP53 was mutated in 68% of LPL-del versus 91% of LPL-nml patients. The overall response to ibrutinib-based therapy was 57%, including 37% complete remission (CR) and 20% partial remission (PR) in patients with LPL-del versus 90% (56% CR and 34% PR) in patients with LPL-nml (p < 0.001). LPL-del patients also showed a poorer overall survival (OS) compared with patients with LPL-nml (median OS, 236 months versus undefined, p < 0.001). In summary, the data presented establish an association between LPL deletion, resistance to ibrutinib-based therapy, and poorer overall survival in TP53-deleted CLL patients. We suggest that LPL deletion might be utilized as a biomarker for risk stratification and to predict therapeutic response in this high-risk group of CLL patients.

RESUMO

Chronic myelogenous leukemia (CML) is characterized by a reciprocal translocation between the long arms of chromosomes 9 and 22 leading to the formation of a constitutively active tyrosine kinase. Tyrosine kinase inhibitors (TKIs) are the treatment of choice for patients diagnosed with CML and have many associated side effects including the rarely-reported eruption of squamous cell carcinomas (SCCs). Herein, we report a patient with CML who presented with sudden onset of multiple scaly lesions on his legs and trunk after beginning treatment with nilotinib, a novel TKI. Six biopsies were performed at his initial presentation and four of these lesions were confirmed to be keratoacanthoma-type SCCs. One month later, the patient reported the development of multiple new similar lesions on his legs, arms, and face. Four more biopsies were performed revealing keratoacanthoma-type and well-differentiated SCCs. Certain tyrosine kinase inhibitors such as sorafenib and quizartinib have been reported to cause eruptive keratoacanthoma (KA)-type SCCs as seen in our patient. However, there is only one other report in the literature of nilotinib promoting the development of SCCs or KAs. Physicians should be aware of this potential adverse effect and patients taking nilotinib should be closely monitored by a dermatologist.

RESUMO

BACKGROUND/AIM: To study the long-term clinical efficacy and tolerability of ibrutinib monotherapy in real-world relapsed and refractory chronic lymphocytic leukemia (RR-CLL) patients outside clinical trials. PATIENTS AND METHODS: Clinical data of 171 RR-CLL patients treated with ibrutinib were collected within the observational study of the Polish Adult Leukemia Study Group. RESULTS: Median patient age was 64 years. Patients were pretreated with 3 (1-10) median lines of therapy, while 42 (24.6%) had 17p deletion. The median observation time was 40 months (range=1-59 months), while median ibrutinib monotherapy reached 37.5 months (range=0.4-59.2 months). Response was noted in 132 (77.2%) patients. The estimated 5-year progression-free survival (PFS) and overall survival (OS) rates were 61.1% (95%CI=49.3-70.9%) and 56.8% (95%CI=45.6-66.6%), respectively. At the time of analysis 97 (56.7%) remained under ibrutinib monotherapy. CONCLUSION: Ibrutinib is clinically effective and tolerable as a monotherapy in real-world RR-CLL patients.

RESUMO

With recent advancements in the understanding of vitiligo pathogenesis, Janus kinase (JAK) inhibitors have emerged as a promising new treatment modality, but their effects remain incompletely elucidated. Tofacitinib, an oral JAK 1/3 inhibitor approved for the treatment of rheumatoid arthritis, has previously been shown to induce significant re-pigmentation in vitiligo. However, as with other novel targeted therapies, cutaneous adverse effects have been observed. We report a 36-year-old woman with a history of rheumatoid arthritis, refractory to multiple pharmacotherapies, who was initiated on tofacitinib and subsequently developed progressive depigmented patches consistent with new-onset vitiligo. Although definitive causation cannot be established in this case without additional studies, it is important to note that many targeted therapies have the potential to induce paradoxical effects, that is, the occurrence or exacerbation of pathologic conditions that have been shown to respond to these medications. Paradoxical findings with other targeted therapies include the occurrence of melanoma during treatment with BRAF inhibitors, keratoacanthomas with PD-1 inhibitors, vitiligo and psoriasis with TNF-alpha inhibitors, and hidradenitis suppurativa with various biologic agents. Although JAK inhibitors hold therapeutic promise in the treatment of inflammatory skin disorders, further research is warranted to more fully comprehend their effects.

RESUMO

Therapeutic strategies for pulmonary arterial hypertension (PAH) have made remarkable progress over the last two decades. Currently, 3 types of drugs can be used to treat PAH; prostacyclins, phosphodiesterase 5 inhibitors, and endothelin receptor antagonists (ERA). In Japan, the first generation ERA bosentan was reimbursed in 2005, following which the 2nd generation ERAs ambrisentan and macitentan were reimbursed in 2009 and 2015, respectively. The efficacy of each ERA on hemodynamics in PAH patients remains to be elucidated. The aims of this study were to evaluate the hemodynamic effects of ERAs and compare these effects among each generation of ERAs.We retrospectively examined the clinical parameters of 42 PAH patients who were prescribed an ERA (15 bosentan, 12 ambrisentan, and 15 macitentan) and who underwent a hemodynamic examination before and after ERA introduction at our institution from January 2007 to July 2019.In a total of 42 patients, mean pulmonary arterial pressure (mPAP) and pulmonary vascular resistance (PVR) were significantly decreased and cardiac index was significantly increased after ERA introduction (P < 0.001) and the World Health Organization-Functional class (WHO-Fc) was significantly improved after ERA introduction (P = 0.005). Next, in a comparison between 1st and 2nd generation ERAs, 2nd generation ERAs were found to have brought about greater improvements in hemodynamic parameters (mPAP and PVR. P < 0.01), heart rate, brain natriuretic peptide, arterial oxygen saturation, and mixed venous oxygen saturation than the 1st generation ERA bosentan.We conclude that all ERAs could successfully improve the hemodynamics of PAH patients and that the newer generation ERAs, ambrisentan and macitentan, seemed to be preferable to bosentan.

RESUMO

INTRODUCTION: Waldenstrom Macroglobulinaemia (WM) is a heterogenous condition which poses a challenge to manage. Novel therapies such as Ibrutinib have been shown to be efficacious in treating WM. The landscape of Ibrutinib's role in treating WM is everchanging with new discoveries in disease genomics and evolution together as well as through new findings in clinical trials. AREAS COVERED: A systematic literature review was carried out using two databases 'Medline' and 'Embase' from 2009 to July 2019. Keywords used included 'Ibrutinib,' 'Waldenstrom Macroglobulinaemia,' and 'lymphoma.' There were four major clinical trials identified primarily describing outcomes of Ibrutinib in managing WM which this paper evaluates in detail. The authors present evidence of the role of Ibrutinib in the management of specific complications associated with WM. They also explore the recently discovered genomics of the disease affecting response to therapy. EXPERT OPINION: The evidence for the use of Ibrutinib as a treatment option for relapsed/refractory WM is compelling in MYD88 mutated WM with the response and survival rates potentially better than conventional salvage chemoimmunotherapy. There is also a case for it to be used in the frontline setting in patients unfit for conventional frontline chemoimmunotherapy.

RESUMO

BACKGROUND: Abrocitinib, an oral selective Janus kinase 1 inhibitor, was effective and well tolerated in adults with moderate-to-severe atopic dermatitis in a phase 2b trial. We aimed to assess the efficacy and safety of abrocitinib monotherapy in adolescents and adults with moderate-to-severe atopic dermatitis. METHODS: In this multicentre, double-blind, randomised phase 3 trial (JADE MONO-1), patients (aged ≥12 years) with moderate-to-severe atopic dermatitis (Investigator Global Assessment score ≥3, Eczema Area and Severity Index [EASI] score ≥16, percentage of body surface area affected ≥10%, and Peak Pruritus Numerical Rating Scale score ≥4) with a bodyweight of 40 kg or more, were enrolled at 69 sites in Australia, Canada, Europe, and the USA. Patients were randomly assigned (2:2:1) to oral abrocitinib 100 mg, abrocitinib 200 mg, or placebo once daily for 12 weeks. Randomisation was done using an interactive response technology system, stratified by baseline disease severity and age. Patients, investigators, and the funder of the study were masked to study treatment. The coprimary endpoints were the proportion of patients who had achieved an Investigator Global Assessment response (score of 0 [clear] or 1 [almost clear] with a ≥2-grade improvement from baseline), and the proportion of patients who achieved at least a 75% improvement in EASI score from baseline (EASI-75) score, both assessed at week 12. Efficacy was assessed in the full analysis set, which included all randomised patients who received at least one dose of study medication. Safety was assessed in all randomised patients. This study is registered with ClinicalTrials.gov, NCT03349060. FINDINGS: Between Dec 7, 2017, and March 26, 2019, 387 patients were enrolled: 156 were assigned to abrocitinib 100 mg, 154 to abrocitinib 200 mg, and 77 to placebo. All enrolled patients received at least one dose of study treatment and thus were evaluable for 12-week efficacy. Of the patients with available data for the coprimary endpoints at week 12, the proportion of patients who had achieved an Investigator Global Assessment response was significantly higher in the abrocitinib 100 mg group than in the placebo group (37 [24%] of 156 patients vs six [8%] of 76 patients; p=0·0037) and in the abrocitinib 200 mg group compared with the placebo group (67 [44%] of 153 patients vs six [8%] of 76 patients; p<0·0001). Of the patients with available data for the coprimary endpoints at week 12, compared with the placebo group, the proportion of patients who had achieved an EASI-75 response was significantly higher in the abrocitinib 100 mg group (62 [40%] of 156 patients vs nine [12%] of 76 patients; p<0·0001) and abrocitinib 200 mg group (96 [63%] of 153 patients vs nine [12%] of 76 patients; p<0·0001). Adverse events were reported in 108 (69%) of 156 patients in the abrocitinib 100 mg group, 120 (78%) of 154 patients in the abrocitinib 200 mg group, and 44 (57%) of 77 patients in the placebo group. Serious adverse events were reported in five (3%) of 156 patients in the abrocitinib 100 mg group, five (3%) of 154 patients in the abrocitinib 200 mg group, and three (4%) of 77 patients in the placebo group. No treatment-related deaths were reported. INTERPRETATION: Monotherapy with oral abrocitinib once daily was effective and well tolerated in adolescents and adults with moderate-to-severe atopic dermatitis. FUNDING: Pfizer.
