Nilanjan Ghosh, MD, discusses the significance of the data from a pilot study of lisocabtagene maraleucel in patients ineligible for second-line transplant with relapsed/refractory aggressive large B-cell non-Hodgkin lymphoma.
Lenalidomide in combination with rituximab (Rituxan, R2) induction has the ability to achieve high rates of complete molecular response (CMR), similar to rituximab plus chemotherapy, when used as frontline therapy in patients with follicular lymphoma (FL), according to results from the phase 3 RELEVANCE trial (NCT01650701).
Tisagenlecleucel, a chimeric antigen receptor T-cell therapy, showed evidence of clinical benefit for patients with relapsed or refractory follicular lymphoma, in terms of complete response rate, meeting the primary end point of the phase 2 ELARA clinical trial.
The FDA has approved tafasitamab-cxix in combination with lenalidomide for the treatment of adult patients with relapsed or refractory diffuse large B-cell lymphoma not otherwise specific, including DLBCL arising from low-grade lymphoma, and patients who are not eligible for autologous stem cell transplant.
The combination of camrelizumab plus gemcitabine, vinorelbine, and pegylated liposomal doxorubicin demonstrated promising efficacy in patients with relapsed/refractory primary mediastinal B-cell lymphoma. The combination also had a manageable safety profile, according to findings from a phase 2 clinical trial.
