Novel treatments show improvements in survival and response rates for leukemia and lymphoma
Date:12/6/2008

with diffuse large B-cell lymphoma (23 patients), those with follicular lymphoma (21 patients), and those with other B-cell non-Hodgkin lymphomas (24 patients), including chronic lymphocytic leukemia/small lymphocytic lymphoma (11 patients), mantle cell lymphoma (nine patients), MALT lymphoma (three patients), and lymphoplasmacytic non-Hodgkin lymphoma (one patient). Patients previously received an average of five therapies, and many had previously received an autologous stem cell transplant or radioimmunotherapy.

The study found that fostamatinib disodium produced complete or partial responses in 21 percent of patients with diffuse large B-cell lymphoma, 54 percent of patients with chronic lymphocytic leukemia/small lymphocytic lymphoma, 11 percent of mantle cell lymphoma patients, and 10 percent of those with follicular lymphoma. Stable disease was also seen in an additional 23 patients, including 12 with follicular lymphoma, four with diffuse large B-cell lymphoma, four with mantle cell lymphoma, two with chronic lymphocytic leukemia/small lymphocytic lymphoma, and one with MALT lymphoma. A proportion of these responses was prolonged, with some patients remaining on therapy for more than one year. Given the refractory nature of these patients' lymphoma, the toxicity profile was quite favorable.

There were four cases of febrile neutropenia with eight patients requiring a dose-modification due to neutropenia, hypertension, liver function test abnormalities, fever, and mucositis.
