Conclusion cited from the abstract: Integration of CD4 expression inside the follicle at diagnosis with FLIPI improves identification of FL patients at risk for early failure.
Conclusion cited from the abstract: Here, we validated the prognostic utility of the m7-FLIPI for patients treated with R-CHOP/CVP. However, the m7-FLIPI was not prognostic in patients treated with Bendamustine-based regimens. While EZH2mutation status was associated with longer PFS in patients receiving CHOP/CVP regimens (with either R or G), it did not impact treatment outcome of patients treated with Bendamustine, suggesting that EZH2 mutation status is a predictive marker for differential efficacy of the chemotherapy regimen. If confirmed, the EZH2 mutation status might be a highly useful biomarker to guide the selection of the preferred upfront chemotherapy.

Conclusion cited from the abstract: Tazemetostat was generally well tolerated, with a low incidence of treatment-related AEs. Tazemetostat demonstrated clinically meaningful, durable, single-agent activity across a spectrum of patients with FL, including the POD24 subgroup, and pronounced responses in patients with EZH2 activating mutations.

Conclusion cited from the abstract: The MRD data of this phase II trial for early stage FL indicate that RT alone is often insufficient to eradicate the disease, being capable of inducing a negative MRD only in 40% of evaluable cases, with a long-lasting effect only in half of them. The primary objective of this study - MRD negativity after immunotherapy - was achieved, obtaining the disappearance of BCL2/IGH rearranged cells in the majority of patients treated with ofatumumab. The strategy of an immunotherapy consolidation after IFRT in MRD-positive patients allowed to increase molecular responses. A longer follow-up and further studies on larger patient populations will allow to conclusively define the impact of this MRD-driven strategy also on clinical outcome.

Conclusion cited from the abstract: O-Len was associated with very high CR rates and 2-year PFS estimates in untreated, high tumor burden FL. The toxicity profile was manageable. Further study of this effective, immune therapy approach in untreated FL is warranted.
Conclusion cited from the abstract: Our study of the novel triplet combination, Pola-G-Len, demonstrates a safety profile consistent with the known profiles of the individual drugs. This first report of the full efficacy population showed high CR rates at EOI in a heavily pre-treated and refractory population, which compares favorably with currently available R/R FL therapies. These compelling findings support the further investigation of this triplet combination in a larger pt population. To determine the median PFS, a longer period of follow-up, through and beyond maintenance treatment, is ongoing.
