We previously reported that brentuximab vedotin (BV) enabled successful reduced-intensity allogeneic hematopoietic cell transplantation (RIC-alloHCT) in patients with relapsed Hodgkin lymphoma, after a median follow-up of 14.4 months. We now provide an updated report on 21 patients who were treated from 2009 to 2012 with BV before RIC-alloHCT with a uniform(More)
BACKGROUND Patients seropositive for cytomegalovirus (CMV) and undergoing allogeneic haemopoietic stem-cell transplantation (HCT) are at risk for CMV reactivation. Stimulating viral immunity by vaccination might achieve CMV viraemia control without the need for antiviral agents. CMVPepVax is a chimeric peptide composed of a cytotoxic CD8 T-cell epitope from(More)
Brentuximab vedotin induces an overall response rate of 75% in patients with relapsed/refractory Hodgkin lymphoma, but its impact on future allogeneic transplantation (allo-HCT) is not known. We retrospectively examined the records of 18 patients with relapsed/refractory Hodgkin lymphoma who were treated on brentuximab vedotin clinical trials to evaluate(More)
We report feasibility and response results of a phase II study investigating prolonged weekly bortezomib and dexamethasone followed by thalidomide and dexamethasone as maintenance therapy after single autologous stem cell transplantation (ASCT) in patients with multiple myeloma. Within 4 to 8 weeks of ASCT, patients received weekly bortezomib and(More)
Current conditioning regimens provide insufficient disease control in relapsed/refractory acute leukemia patients undergoing hematopoietic stem cell transplantation (HSCT) with active disease. Intensification of chemotherapy and/or total body irradiation (TBI) is not feasible because of excessive toxicity. Total marrow and lymphoid irradiation (TMLI) allows(More)
