Nivolumab in Relapsed or Refractory DLBCL Ineligible for or After Failure of Autologous Transplantation

In a phase II trial reported in the Journal of Clinical Oncology, Ansell et al found that nivolumab was associated with low response rates among patients with relapsed or refractory diffuse large B-cell lymphoma (DLBCL) who were ineligible for or experienced failure of autologous hematopoietic cell ...

For Hodgkin Lymphoma, PD-1 Blockade Is Not the Final Answer

Although programmed cell death protein 1 (PD-1) blockade is highly effective in Hodgkin lymphoma, not all patients respond, and not all responses are durable. Stephen M. Ansell, MD, PhD, Chair of the Mayo Clinic Lymphoma Group and Professor of Medicine at the Mayo Clinic, Rochester, described...

Encouraging Results With Pembrolizumab in Relapsed/Refractory Classical Hodgkin Lymphoma

AN EFFECTIVE antitumor immune response relies on cytotoxic T cells that are activated and able to target the malignant clone. As T cells become activated, they upregulate suppressive receptors including programmed cell death protein 1 (PD-1). Upregulation of inhibitory signals is important to...

Stephen M. Ansell, MD, PhD, on Hematologic Malignancies: Results of the CheckMate 039 Trial

Stephen M. Ansell, MD, PhD, of the Mayo Clinic, discusses phase I study findings on nivolumab in combination with ipilimumab for relapsed or refractory disease (Abstract 183).

Nivolumab in Recurrent Classical Hodgkin Lymphoma: Refreshingly Supportive Data

It is commonly said that if something is too good to be true, it usually is. It is therefore quite refreshing when really good results are replicated in a subsequent study. As reported in The Lancet Oncology by Younes et al1 and reviewed in this issue of The ASCO Post, a phase II trial of...

Novel Approaches Harness the Microenvironment Against Hodgkin Lymphoma

In the treatment of classical Hodgkin lymphoma, antibodies targeting programmed cell death protein 1 (PD-1) are just the beginning, according to Stephen M. Ansell, MD, PhD, Professor of Medicine and Chair of the Lymphoma Group at the Mayo Clinic, Rochester, Minnesota.1 Speaking at the 2016 Pan...

Stephen M. Ansell, MD, PhD, on Precision Immunotherapy for Refractory Hodgkin Lymphoma

Stephen M. Ansell, MD, PhD, of the Mayo Clinic, discusses the role of checkpoint inhibitors in Hodgkin lymphoma and the efficacy of nivolumab and pembrolizumab.

SIDEBAR: Addition of Novel Agents May Improve Outcomes With ABVD

In North America, the standard front-line treatment for advanced Hodgkin lymphoma is ABVD (doxorubicin, bleomycin, vinblastine, dacarbazine), but this regimen is not effective in all patient subsets. To improve upon the regimen’s efficacy, researchers are evaluating new combinations, said Stephen...

Brentuximab Vedotin Improves Response Rates to ABVD in Hodgkin Lymphoma

For the front-line treatment of advanced Hodgkin lymphoma, ABVD is a standard treatment, but not all patients have good outcomes with this regimen. The addition of brentuximab vedotin (Adcetris), or its substitution for bleomycin, produces high complete response rates but with a moderate increase...

PD-1 Blockade With Nivolumab Produces High Response Rate in Relapsed/Refractory Hodgkin Lymphoma

Anti–PD-1 antibodies have been shown to be effective in solid tumors. There is evidence that the malignant Reed-Sternberg cells in Hodgkin lymphomas use the programmed cell death protein 1 (PD-1) pathway to evade immune detection, with alterations in chromosome 9p24.1 increasing levels of the PD-1...

Brentuximab Vedotin After Autologous Stem Cell Transplantation in High-Risk Hodgkin Lymphoma: Implications of the AETHERA Trial

Hodgkin lymphoma is generally thought to be a malignancy with a favorable prognosis. Overall, approximately 80% of patients will have durable, long-term remissions with initial chemotherapy. Some patients, however, demonstrate evidence of disease progression, and these patients usually receive...

Anti–PD-1 antibodies have been shown to be effective in solid tumors. There is evidence that the malignant Reed-Sternberg cells in Hodgkin lymphomas use the PD-1 pathway to evade immune detection, with alterations in chromosome 9p24.1 increasing levels of PD-L1 and PD-L2 and promoting...
