Is the Mantle Cell Lymphoma International Prognostic Index (MIPI) adequate to stage this cancer? (Abstract number 8092; poster session, June 5, 8:00 a.m. 12:00 p.m.)

In this study, Anthony Mato, M.D., Attending, Lymphoma, the John Theurer Cancer Center and his colleagues looked at the usefulness of a tool known as the Mantle Cell Lymphoma International Prognostic Index (MIPI) for guiding treatment strategies for mantle cell lymphoma, a difficult-to-treat non-Hodgkin lymphoma. The index is used to classify patients into "low," "intermediate" and "high" risk groups in order to stage the cancer and determine the best treatment strategy. Although MIPI has been validated in other studies, conflicting results on using MIPI to guide an aggressive therapy known as "HCVAD" led the researchers to investigate further. They conducted a single-center, retrospective cohort study to identify predictors of survival in patients treated with first-line rituximab-plus-HCVAD (R-HCVAD), alternating with rituximab-methotrexate-AraC (R-MTX-AraC), another combination therapy.

Although the study is still ongoing, the researchers found that MIPI did not identify the three distinct staging categories with respect to patients' overall survival or progression-free survival, the primary endpoints for this study. Dr. Mato and colleagues are collaborating with another center to verify their results. Future work will focus on identifying molecular markers for failure in mantle cell lymphoma patients treated with dose-intensive regimens.

Vorinostat proves safe and tolerable for treating various cancers. (Abstract number e13600; publication-only abstract)

David S. Siegel, M.D., Ph.D., Co-Chief, Multiple Myeloma at the John Theurer Cancer Center and colleagues will present their analyses of safety and tolerability data from Phase I and II studies of vorinostat. Vorinostat is a medication that is FDA approved to treat skin problems rel
