Donor lymphocyte infusion (DLI) was originally administered as a single, relatively large dose of lymphocytes called a bulk dose regimen (BDR). It has since been suggested that the use of an escalating dose regimen (EDR) may be equally effective against leukemia while it induces less graft-versus-host disease (GVHD). We therefore compared the efficacy and(More)
Carfilzomib is a novel, highly selective, tetrapeptide epoxyketone proteasome inhibitor that irreversibly binds to the N-terminal threonine-containing active sites of the 20S proteasome, which is the proteolytic core particle within the 26S proteasome, as compared with bortezomib, which reversibly inhibits the 20S proteasome. 1 In vitro, carfilzomib has(More)
Renal insufficiency (RI) is a frequent complication of multiple myeloma (MM) with negative consequences for patient survival. The improved clinical outcome with successive Total Therapy (TT) protocols was limited to patients without RI. We therefore performed a retrospective analysis of overall survival, progression-free survival and time to progression(More)
Using a data set of 1217 patients with multiple myeloma enrolled in Total Therapies, we have examined the impact of novel therapies on molecular and risk subgroups and the clinical value of molecular classification. Bortezomib significantly improved the progression-free survival (PFS) and overall survival (OS) of the MMSET (MS) subgroup. Thalidomide and(More)
Bruton's tyrosine kinase (BTK) and the chemokine receptor CXCR4 are linked in various hematologic malignancies. The aim of the study was to understand the role of BTK in myeloma cell growth and metastasis using the stably BTK knockdown luciferase-expressing INA6 myeloma line. BTK knockdown had reduced adhesion to stroma and migration of myeloma cells toward(More)
