The OncLive Mantle Cell Lymphoma condition center page is a comprehensive resource for clinical news and expert insights on mantle cell lymphoma treatment. This page features news articles, interviews in written and video format, and podcasts that focus on unmet needs, therapeutic advances, and ongoing research in mantle cell lymphoma.
January 12, 2021 - Stopping combination treatment with venetoclax, lenalidomide, and rituximab after achieving minimal residual disease negativity in patients with relapsed/refractory mantle cell lymphoma is feasible.
Brexucabtagene autoleucel induced durable response in patients with relapsed/refractory mantle cell lymphoma, according to findings from the phase 2 ZUMA-2 trial, leading to an FDA approval for use in this patient population on July 24, 2020.
December 22, 2020 - Minimum residual disease negativity in the bone marrow and peripheral blood prior to autologous stem cell transplant predicts better progression-free survival and overall survival in younger patients with mantle cell lymphoma.
December 18, 2020 - Sequential immunotherapy with rituximab-based therapy and the addition of lenalidomide proved effective among patients with TP53 wild-type mantle cell lymphoma, even among those with a Ki-67 level of at least 30% and/or blastoid morphology.
December 17, 2020 - Lisocabtagene maraleucel exhibited promising antitumor activity with low rates of grade 3 or higher cytokine release syndrome and neurotoxicity in patients with relapsed/refractory mantle cell lymphoma.
December 17, 2020 — The European Commission has granted a conditional marketing authorization to the CD19-targeted CAR T-cell therapy KTE-X19 for use in adult patients with relapsed or refractory mantle cell lymphoma who had previously received 2 or more lines of systemic therapy including a BTK inhibitor.
December 5, 2020 - VLS-101, a novel ROR1-targeted antibody-drug conjugate, demonstrated encouraging clinical efficacy, consistent pharmacokinetics, and a favorable safety profile in patients with heavily pretreated mantle cell lymphoma and diffuse large B-cell lymphoma.
With the shift away from chemoimmunotherapy, and the adoption of novel combinations, as well as cellular therapy, the MCL treatment landscape has entered a new era. Looking forward, minimal residual disease is bound to play a critical role in terms of guiding treatment selection.
Jia Ruan, MD, PhD, associate professor of clinical medicine, Weill Cornell Medicine/NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital, discusses treatment considerations for patients with relapsed/refractory mantle cell lymphoma.
