The overall response rate achieved with ruxolitinib at day 28 proved to be higher than what was achieved with best available therapy in patients with steroid-refractory acute graft-vs-host disease, irrespective of organ involvement.
Treatment with a treosulfan-based conditioning regimen led to a superior event-free and overall survival compared with busulfan-based conditioning in patients with acute myeloid leukemia undergoing allogeneic hematopoietic cell transplantation, according to a post-hoc subgroup analysis of the phase 3 MC-FludT.14/L trial.
Pegcetacoplan treatment was associated with hemoglobin stabilization and normalization, as well as a superior change from baseline in hemoglobin levels, which showed a meaningful correction of anemia, in patients with complement inhibitor–naïve paroxysmal nocturnal hemoglobinuria.
Checkpoint inhibitors prior to allogeneic hematopoietic cell transplant improved progression-free survival and relapse incidence in patients with Hodgkin lymphoma, but the treatment did not improve non-relapse mortality or overall survival.
Axicabtagene ciloleucel demonstrated a clinically improvement in quality of life compared with standard of care chemotherapy in the second-line setting for patients with relapsed/refractory large B-cell lymphoma.
