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)
Randomized trials comparing autologous stem cell transplant (ASCT) to conventional chemotherapy have demonstrated superior survival among HIV-negative ASCT patients with relapsed non-Hodgkin lymphoma (NHL). Recent trials explored the feasibility of ASCT in the HIV setting. Although these studies have shown that ASCT in HIV-positive NHL patients (HIVpos-NHL)(More)
We conducted a matched-cohort analysis of autologous transplant conditioning regimens for diffuse large cell lymphoma in 92 patients treated with either radioimmunotherapy (RIT) or total body irradiation (TBI)-based conditioning regimens. The RIT regimen consisted of 0.4 mCi/kg of (90)Y-ibritumomab tiuxetan plus BEAM (BCNU, etoposide, cytarabine,(More)
Patients with peripheral T cell lymphoma (PTCL) have a poor prognosis with current treatment approaches. We examined the outcomes of high-dose therapy (HDT) and autologous hematopoietic cell transplant (AHCT) on the treatment of PTCL and the impact of patient/disease features on long-term outcome. Sixty-seven patients with PTCL-not otherwise specified (n =(More)
Anal melanoma is an aggressive tumor with a predilection for early infiltration and distant spread, resulting in poor overall survival. Because anal melanoma is rare, only small case series are reported in the literature, making it difficult to draw conclusions about optimal treatment and outcome. The Surveillance, Epidemiology, and End Results database was(More)
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)
Acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL) with high-risk features has a poor prognosis in adults despite aggressive chemotherapy. Reduced-intensity conditioning (RIC) is a lower toxicity alternative for high-risk patients requiring hematopoietic cell transplantation (HCT); however, it has not been widely used for ALL. We conducted a retrospective study of 24(More)
Transformation from indolent non-Hodgkin lymphoma (NHL) to diffuse large B cell lymphoma (DLBCL) has historically been associated with a poor prognosis. A small series of autologous stem cell transplantation (ASCT) studies using conventional conditioning regimens has demonstrated durable progression-free survival (PFS) rates ranging from 25% to 47%, but(More)
The study analyzed outcomes of a consecutive case series of 37 patients with peripheral T-cell non-Hodgkin lymphoma, from related and unrelated donors, using allogeneic hematopoietic cell transplant (allo-HCT), between the years 2000 and 2007. All patients were pretreated; the majority had either relapsed or progressive disease (n = 25, 68%), 13 had(More)
OBJECTIVE Quantitative computerized tomography (QCT), a scanning method routinely used to classify tissues based on their radio density, was used to detect choroidal calcification. DESIGN Case reports. PARTICIPANTS Two patients with known or suspected choroidal calcium-choroidal osteoma (CO) and pseudoxanthoma elasticum (PXE) and five normal control(More)
