Activated BCL11B in acute leukemias, SARS-CoV-2 antibody responses in lymphoma patients receiving B-cell therapies, and PD-L1 in neutrophil apoptosis and tissue inflammation
In this week’s episode, we will review a study that shows that BCL11B is an important oncogene in acute leukemias with myeloid and T-lymphoid features, learn more about antibody responses to SARS-CoV-2 vaccination in lymphoma patients receiving B-cell directed therapies, and examine the role of programmed death ligand 1 (or PD-L1) and the PI 3 kinase-AKT survival pathway in delayed neutrophil apoptosis at sites of tissue inflammation.
First on today’s podcast, we’ll review results of a randomized phase 2 study demonstrating that inhibition of ROCK2 with belumosudil is well tolerated and effective in patients with steroid-refractory graft-versus-host disease. Next, we’ll review the work of researchers who have uncovered new...
All four studies included in this podcast present preliminary data with modest numbers of patients, and therefore, the findings should be interpreted with these limitations. Likewise, the impact of specific strains and waning antibody levels after COVID-19 vaccination will require further...
