Disease symptoms and treatment complications can profoundly affect quality of life (QOL) in patients (pts) with chronic lymphocytic leukemia (CLL). Here, we compare the QOL and hematologic function of patients treated with frontline ibr versus clb.
Patients with chemorefractory non-Hodg­kin lymphoma (NHL) have poor response to standard therapy and short overall survival. The objectives of the phase 1 ZUMA-1 trial were to evaluate the safety and efficacy of KTE-C19, an autologous, anti-CD19 chimeric antigen receptor (CAR) T-cell therapy in patients with chemorefractory NHL.
We reviewed the personal and family histories of patients found to have multiple pathogenic or likely pathogenic mutations when tested clinically for 19 genes for hereditary breast and ovarian cancer and the implications for the patient and his or her family.
