Highlights

  • A Case Series of TERC Variant Telomere Biology Disorders in Unrelated Families From Atlantic Canada

    TERC variant telomere biology disorders (TBDs) are a rare, heterogenous group of disorders that arise from germline variants in TERC, a gene that encodes for the RNA component of telomerase. Variants in TERC lead to accelerated telomere attrition and can manifest as many different phenotypes.

  • Opioid Use in Adults With Sickle Cell Disease Hospitalized During Vaso-Occlusive Crisis: A Systematic Review

    While pain is the hallmark of sickle cell disease (SCD), healthcare personnel are often ill-equipped to adequately treat patients who present in vaso-occlusive crisis (VOC).

  • A Pilot Phase II Study of the Feasibility and Efficacy of Vincristine Sulfate Liposome Injection in Patients With Relapsed or Refractory Acute Myeloid Leukemia

    Resistance to therapy and a poor outcome characterize relapsed or refractory acute myeloid leukemia (AML). There is a clear need for additional palliative approaches with acceptable toxicities.

  • Ofatumumab and Complement Replacement in Relapsed/Refractory Chronic Lymphocytic Leukemia

    We conducted a phase 2 trial involving patients with relapsed/refractory chronic lymphocytic leukemia (CLL). Patients were treated with ofatumumab with fresh frozen plasma (FFP) used as a source of complement replacement.

  • Spontaneous Remission in a Patient With Acute Myeloid Leukemia Leading to Undetectable Minimal Residual Disease

    Although rare, spontaneous remission (SR) of acute myeloid leukemia (AML) has been reported in the literature, the underlying mechanisms driving remission remain unknown. However, it is most commonly associated with a preceding severe infection.

Monthly Continuous Erythropoietin Receptor Activator Versus Weekly Epoetin-Beta, Similar Hemoglobinization but Different Anisocytosis Degree in Hemodialysis Patients: A Randomized Controlled Trial
The monthly continuous erythropoietin receptor activator (CERA) utilization maintains stable hemoglobin (Hb) after conversion from weekly epoetin-? (EB); however, how the different pharmacologic properties affect the red blood cell (RBC) size determined by RBC distribution width (RDW) has not been evaluated yet. Full Text

Pulmonary Toxicity of Hodgkin Lymphoma Treatment: A Prospective Single-Center Study
Standard bleomycin-containing first-line therapy and/or irradiation may cause pulmonary toxicity in Hodgkin lymphoma (HL) patients. Our aim was to prospectively assess effects of chest irradiation, bleomycin administration, and other factors on lung function in the treatment of patients with HL. Full Text


Key Clinical Image

Myelodysplastic Syndrome Associated With Auto-Immune Inflammatory Disease in VEXAS Syndrome
Recently, VEXAS (vacuoles, E1 enzyme, X-linked, auto-inflammatory, somatic) syndrome has surfaced as a new disease entity linking an auto-inflammatory clinical presentation with an underlying hematologic disorder. Recently published case reports outline the clinical course and hematologic pathologies associated with this condition. We present a 62-year-old male, with history of type 2 diabetes mellitus and coronary artery disease, who presented with a 6-month history of intermittent fevers, fatigue, body aches, weight loss of 30 lbs, and palpable purpuric lesions on the lower extremities.
