Patients with mantle cell lymphoma treated with second-line ibrutinib or the R-BAC regimen experienced improvement in progression-free survival 2 compared with treatment on rituximab and bendamustine and other regimens, according to findings from the international, retrospective MANTLE-FIRST study.
A new report on ibrutinib-resistant mantle cell lymphoma patient-derived xenograft mouse models shows the potential benefit of the EZH1/2 inhibitor OR-S1, as other similar inhibitors have shown benefit in patients with hematologic cancers.
In relapsed and untreated patients with mantle cell lymphoma, the combination of obinutuzumab, ibrutinib, and venetoclax achieved molecular response rates and was found to be well tolerated, results from the phase 1/2 OAsIs trial demonstrate.
In an interview with Targeted Oncology, Maria Lia Palomba, MD, a hematologic oncologist at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center, discussed the efficacy and safety of liso-cel in patients with R/R MCL as observed in the phase 1 TRANSCEND NHL 001 study.
Constantine Tam, MD, discuses the outcomes of the phase 3 Sympatico Study, which evaluated the safety and efficacy of ibrutinib (Imbruvica) plus venetoclax (Venclexta) for the treatment of relapsed or refractory mantle cell lymphoma compared to monotherapy.
Expression or mutations in SAMHD1 does not appear to be linked with failure-free survival or complete remission rates in patients with mantle cell lymphoma who are treated with high-dose cytarabine-based chemotherapy.
