Emerging treatment options for B-cell lymphomas.
New York City, United States. In J Natl Compr Canc Netw, 31 May 2015
During his presentation at the NCCN 20th Annual Conference, Dr. Andrew D. Zelenetz explored many of them, including the newer immunoconjugates, the Bruton's tyrosine kinase inhibitor ibrutinib, agents targeting apoptosis such as venetoclax (ABT-199), the immunomodulator lenalidomide, and novel immune checkpoint inhibitors such as nivolumab.
B-cell receptor signaling in diffuse large B-cell lymphoma.
Bethesda, United States. In Semin Hematol, 30 Apr 2015
Pharmacological inhibition with ibrutinib of Bruton's tyrosine kinase, a kinase that is required for BCR signaling to engage NF-κB, is selectively toxic for ABC DLBCL tumors; a finding that has now been translated to the clinic.
Multiple myeloma: Updates for pharmacists in the treatment of relapsed and refractory disease.
Ann Arbor, United States. In J Oncol Pharm Pract, Mar 2015
New therapies currently in the drug development pipeline for relapsed and refractory disease include additional proteasome inhibitors (oprozomib, marizomib, ixazomib), histone deacetylase inhibitors (panobinostat, ricolinostat, quisinostat), monoclonal antibodies (daratumumab, elotuzumab, SAR650984), Bruton's tyrosine kinase inhibitors (ibrutinib), a selective inhibitor of nuclear export, and others.
MicroRNAs in B cell lymphomas: How a complex biology gets more complex.
Brno, Czech Republic. In Leukemia, Jan 2015
We focus on miR-contribution to the regulation of important signalling pathways (like NF-κB, PI3K/AKT, TGF-β), BCR signalling and its modulators (like PTEN, SHIP-1, ZAP-70, GAB1, BTK), anti- and pro-apoptotic proteins (like BCL2, MCL1, TCL1, BIM, p53, SIRT1), and transcription factors (like MYC, MYB, PU.1, FOXP1, BCL6).
Treatment strategies in mantle cell lymphoma.
Columbus, United States. In Cancer Treat Res, Dec 2014
Therapy for relapsed disease is dependent on prior treatment, age, comorbidities, and toxicities but includes targeted therapies such as the Bruton's tyrosine kinase (BTK) inhibitor ibrutinib, the immunomodulatory agent lenalidomide, the proteasome inhibitor bortezomib, combination chemoimmunotherapy, ASCT, and allogeneic stem cell transplant in selected cases.
