BACKGROUND Phosphatidylinositol-3-kinase delta (PI3Kδ) mediates B-cell receptor signaling and microenvironmental support signals that promote the growth and survival of malignant B lymphocytes. In a phase 1 study, idelalisib, an orally active selective PI3Kδ inhibitor, showed antitumor activity in patients with previously treated indolent non-Hodgkin's(More)
We present response and survival outcomes of a pivotal phase 2 trial of the antibody-drug conjugate brentuximab vedotin in patients with relapsed/refractory Hodgkin lymphoma following autologous stem cell transplant (N = 102) after a median observation period of approximately 3 years. Median overall survival and progression-free survival were estimated at(More)
Rituximab therapy is associated with a long in vivo persistence, yet little is known about the effect of circulating rituximab on B-cell non-Hodgkin lymphoma (B-NHL) targeting by the other available anti-CD20 monoclonal antibodies (MoAbs) (131)iodine-tositumomab and (90)yttrium-ibritumomab tiuxetan. Therefore we assessed the impact of preexisting rituximab(More)
Adoptive immunotherapy with T cells expressing a tumor-specific chimeric T-cell receptor is a promising approach to cancer therapy that has not previously been explored for the treatment of lymphoma in human subjects. We report the results of a proof-of-concept clinical trial in which patients with relapsed or refractory indolent B-cell lymphoma or mantle(More)
Cellular immune responses have the potential to elicit dramatic and sustained clinical remissions in lymphoma patients. Recent clinical trial data demonstrate that modification of T cells with chimeric antigen receptors (CARs) is a promising strategy. T cells containing CARs with costimulatory domains exhibit improved activity against tumors. We conducted a(More)
Relapsed mantle cell lymphoma is a radiation-sensitive malignancy that is unlikely to be cured by treatment with conventional high-dose therapy and autologous stem cell transplantation. We tested the safety and efficacy of using a CD20-specific monoclonal antibody conjugated with (131)I to deliver high-dose radiation selectively to all lymphoma sites.(More)
BACKGROUND Brentuximab vedotin is a CD30-directed antibody-drug conjugate. Retreatment with brentuximab vedotin monotherapy was investigated in patients with CD30-positive Hodgkin lymphoma (HL) or systemic anaplastic large cell lymphoma (ALCL) who relapsed after achieving complete or partial remission (CR or PR) with initial brentuximab vedotin therapy in a(More)
Radioimmunotherapy (RIT) with ␣-emitting radionuclides is an attractive approach for the treatment of minimal residual disease because the short path lengths and high energies of ␣-particles produce optimal cytotoxicity at small target sites while minimizing damage to surrounding normal tissues. Pretargeted RIT (PRIT) using antibody-streptavidin (Ab-SA)(More)
Allogeneic hematopoietic cell transplantation after conditioning with 131 I–anti-CD45 antibody plus fludarabine and low-dose total body irradiation for elderly patients with advanced acute myeloid leukemia or high-risk myelodysplastic syndrome We conducted a study to estimate the maximum tolerated dose (MTD) of 131 I– anti-CD45 antibody (Ab; BC8) that can(More)
Retinoids have been shown to be clinically useful in the biological therapy of certain myeloid and T-cell malignancies, whereas CD20 has proven to be an effective target in B-cell lymphoma immunotherapy. Both retinoic acid derivatives and anti-CD20 monoclonal antibodies have also been shown to induce apoptosis of malignant cells in vitro. Retinoid-induced(More)
