T-cell prolymphocytic leukemia (T-PLL) is a chemotherapy-resistant malignancy with a median survival of 7.5 months. Preliminary results indicated a high remission induction rate with the human CD52 antibody, CAMPATH-1H. This study reports results in 39 patients with T-PLL treated with CAMPATH-1H between March 1993 and May 2000. All but 2 patients had received prior therapy with a variety of agents, including 30 with pentostatin; none achieved complete remission (CR). CAMPATH-1H (30 mg) was…

T-cell prolymphocytic leukemia
TLDR
T-cell prolymphocytic leukemia is a rare aggressive post-thymic malignancy with poor response to conventional treatment and short survival, and strategies using both autologous and allogeneic stem cell transplantation are currently being explored.

TLDR
The role of allogeneic transplantation with nonmyeloablative conditioning needs to be explored further in both T- and B-PLL to broaden the patient eligibility for what may be a curative treatment.
Cytomegalovirus viremia during Campath-1H therapy for relapsed and refractory chronic lymphocytic leukemia and prolymphocytic leukemia.
TLDR
Cytomegalovirus viremia may be a significant infectious complication during Campath-1H therapy and should be investigated further in future studies.

Alemtuzumab for relapsed and refractory erythrodermic cutaneous T-cell lymphoma: a single institution experience from the Robert H. Lurie Comprehensive Cancer Center
TLDR
An open-label clinical trial and the clinical use of alemtuzumab in 19 heavily pretreated patients with advanced erythrodermic cutaneous T-cell lymphomas (CTCL) with acceptable toxicities are presented.

How I treat prolymphocytic leukemia.
TLDR
The role of allogeneic transplant with nonmyeloablative conditioning needs to be explored further in both Tand B-cell PLL to broaden the patient eligibility for what may be a curative treatment.
Primary refractory T-cell prolymphocytic leukaemia treated with daily administration of Alemtuzumab plus high-dose methylprednisolone.
TLDR
An entirely non-chemotherapy approach, using escalated Alemtuzumab dosing (daily administration) combined with high-dose methylprednisolone (HDMP) and ascitic drainage, resulted in rapid disease control and complete remission in a patient with T-PLL.

TLDR
CAMPATH-1H alone is not sufficient for long-term remissions, and the role of autologous stem-cell transplantation needs further investigation, but it represents a significant improvement over other types of therapy.

TLDR
It is concluded that DCF is effective as a single agent in T-PLL, Sézary syndrome, and LGL leukemia, but has low activity in other T-cell disorders.
Subcutaneous CAMPATH‐1H in fludarabine‐resistant/relapsed chronic lymphocytic and B‐prolymphocytic leukaemia
TLDR
Seven patients with B‐cell leukaemia who were treated with CAMPATH‐1H — a genetically reshaped CD52 monoclonal antibody, administered subcutaneously three times a week for 6–12 weeks — achieved complete remission and three patients with CLL attained PR; two of the latter were retreated.
Humanized CD52 monoclonal antibody campath‐1H as first‐line treatment in chronic lymphocytic leukaemia
TLDR
Campath‐1H is a highly effective and well‐tolerated agent in patients with previously untreated CLL and further studies are warranted.

TLDR
CAMPATH-1H had significant activity in patients with advanced and chemotherapy-resistant CLL, and the most pronounced effects were noted in blood, bone marrow, and spleen.

TLDR
CAMPATH-1H had a significant but limited activity in patients with advanced, heavily pretreated NHL, and the most pronounced effects were noted in the blood and bone marrow and in Patients with mycosis fungoides.
Indolent course as a relatively frequent presentation in T‐prolymphocytic leukaemia
TLDR
T‐PLL may start as an indolent disease similar to that reported in ataxia telangectasia, and in this rare genetic disorder, some patients develop stable T‐cell clones which progress toward T‐P LL‐like leukaemia.
In vivo CAMPATH-1H prevents graft-versus-host disease following nonmyeloablative stem cell transplantation.
TLDR
This study demonstrates that this nonmyeloablative preparative regimen is associated with durable engraftment, minimal toxicity, and low incidence of GVHD.

TLDR
A 47-year-old male with refractory T-PLL who was treated with high-dose chemoradiotherapy and allogeneic bone marrow transplantation from an HLA-matched sibling achieves complete remission and remains in remission 3 years after the transplant.
