Hodgkin Lymphoma and T/NK Cell Lymphoma—Clinical Studies: Hodgkin Lymphoma: Chemotherapy and Response Adapted Approaches

925  PET-Guided Treatment of Early-Stage Favorable Hodgkin Lymphoma: Final Results of the International, Randomized Phase 3 Trial HD16 By the German Hodgkin Study Group

Michael Fuchs, et al.

The Abstract concludes: In early-stage favorable HL, radiotherapy cannot be safely omitted from standard CMT without a clinically relevant loss of tumor control in patients with negative PET-2. PET positivity after 2xABVD represents a risk factor for PFS in HL patients treated with standard CMT, particularly when a Deauville score of 4 is considered as cutoff for positivity.


926  B-CAP (brentuximab vedotin, cyclophosphamide, doxorubicin and predniso(lo)Ne) in Older Patients with Advanced-Stage Hodgkin Lymphoma: Results of a Phase II Intergroup Trial By the German Hodgkin Study Group (GHSG) and the Nordic Lymphoma Group (NLG)

Boris Boell, et al.

The Abstract concludes: B-CAP is feasible and effective in patients older than 60 years with advanced-stage cHL and should be subject of further research.


927  Response-Adapted Therapy with Nivolumab and Brentuximab Vedotin (BV), Followed By BV and Bendamustine for Suboptimal Response, in Children, Adolescents, and Young Adults with Standard-Risk Relapsed/Refractory Classical Hodgkin Lymphoma

Paul Harker-Murray, et al.

The Abstract concludes: For children, adolescents, and young adults with standard-risk R/R cHL prior to ASCT, this risk-stratified, response-adapted approach using nivo, BV, and bendamustine resulted in high CMR rates and was well tolerated, making it a promising novel salvage therapy. Most evaluated patients achieved CMR with IND (nivo + BV); all 6 who went to INT (BV + bendamustine) achieved CMR. Updated results based on a planned interim analysis including more patients and BICR-assessed response data will be presented.

928  Phase 1 Study of Adct-301 (Camidanlumab Tesirine), a Novel Pyrrolobenzodiazepine-Based Antibody Drug Conjugate, in Relapsed/Refractory Classical Hodgkin Lymphoma

Mehdi Hamadani, et al.

The Abstract concludes: In pts with R/R cHL, therapy with Cami-T provided impressive ORRs and CR rates in a heavily pretreated pt population. A 45 µg/kg dose of Cami-T was identified as having optimal activity with an acceptable safety profile. Enrollment of pts with HL is now complete and initial response data for all pts with HL will be available later this year. This data supports further investigation in a planned Phase 2 study.

929  Long-Term Follow-up of SWOG S0816: Response-Adapted Therapy for Stage III/IV Hodgkin Lymphoma Demonstrates Limitations of PET-Adapted Approach

Deborah M. Stephens, et al.

The Abstract concludes: The long-term overall survival of the patients treated on S0816 remains high (94%) at 5 years. Despite historical data suggesting favorable clinical outcomes in patients with a negative PET2, nearly 25% of these patients experienced relapse events, demonstrating limitations of a PET-adapted approach and of standard frontline therapy with ABVD. In patients who were PET2+, PFS was favorable relative to historical series, but was associated with a high rate of secondary malignancies. Our results emphasize the importance of long-term follow-up in this disease, and the need for better biomarkers at diagnosis of HL and less toxic approaches for patients with a positive PET2.


930  Relapse Risk and Loss in Expectation of Lifetime in Young Classical Hodgkin Lymphoma Patients - a Nordic Lymphoma Group Study of 2,582 Patients

Jorne Lionel Biccler, et al.

The Abstract concludes: By reporting five-year relapse risk and loss of life expectancy overall and conditioned on years in remission, we provide relevant patient-centred prognostic measures for young contemporarily treated cHL patients. The results are reassuring and indicate that limited stage patients who remain event-free two years post-diagnosis have a future life expectancy in line with HL-free individuals. Additionally, irrespective of risk group, the five-year relapse risk was minimal once three years of event-free survival was reached. This information should be taken into account in future surveillance programs.
