  • Efficacy of Frontline Chemotherapy for Extranodal Natural Killer/T-Cell Lymphoma: A Systematic Review and Network Meta-Analysis

    Treatment with non-anthracycline (ANT)-based chemotherapy has increased survival in patients with extranodal natural killer/T-cell lymphoma (ENKTCL). However, the relative efficacy of various drug combinations has been contentious.

  • Harnessing the Immune System: An Effective Way to Manage Diffuse Large B-Cell Lymphoma

    Diffuse large B-cell lymphoma (DLBCL) is a heterogenous hematological disorder with malignant potential controlled by immunological characteristics of the tumor microenvironment. Rapid breakthrough in the molecular pathways has made immunological approaches the main anchor in the management of DLBCL, with or without chemotherapeutic agents.

  • Incidence and Risk of Hematological Adverse Events Associated With Immune Checkpoint Inhibitors: A Systematic Literature Review and Meta-Analysis

    Immune checkpoint inhibitors (ICIs) have been a breakthrough in cancer therapy. ICI therapy is generally better tolerated than cytotoxic chemotherapy; however, hematological adverse events (AEs) have not been fully analyzed.

  • Mature Type T-Lymphoblastic Leukemia/Lymphoma Presenting With Isolated Central Nervous System Symptomatology in a Patient With Giant Cell Arteritis on Long-Term Steroid Treatment

    T-lymphoblastic leukemia/lymphoma (T-ALL/T-LBL) is a malignancy comprised of T-lymphoblasts that can present as one of four clinical subtypes (pro-T, pre-T, cortical T, and mature T).

  • Acute Myeloid Leukemia Following Myeloproliferative Neoplasms: A Review of What We Know, What We Do Not Know, and Emerging Treatment Strategies

    Acute myeloid leukemia (AML) arising from myeloproliferative neoplasms (MPNs) represents a small subtype of secondary AML (sAML). This entity is well known to be associated with poor responses to available treatment options and dismal outcomes.




Real-World Data of Crizanlizumab in Sickle Cell Disease: A Single-Center Analysis
Crizanlizumab was approved by the United States Food and Drug Administration agency in 2019 for decreasing vaso-occlusive events (VOEs) in sickle cell disease (SCD). Data regarding the use of crizanlizumab in the real-world setting are limited. Full Text

Local and Systemic Immunity During Five Vaccinations Against SARS-CoV-2 in Zanubrutinib-Treated Patients With Chronic Lymphocytic Leukemia
Patients with chronic lymphocytic leukemia (CLL) are vulnerable to coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) and are at risk of inferior response to severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2) vaccination, especially if treated with the first-generation Brutonís tyrosine kinase inhibitor (BTKi) ibrutinib.

Key Clinical Image

Sickle Cell Trait: Is It Always Benign?
Sickle cell disease is a well-known homozygous inherited hemoglobinopathy that causes vaso-occlusive phenomena and chronic hemolysis. Vaso-occlusion results in sickle cell crisis and can eventually lead to complications involving multiple organ systems. However, the heterozygous counterpart, sickle cell trait (SCT) has less clinical significance as these patients are generally asymptomatic. Full Text
