ABSTRACT

Este relato aborda o caso de um homem de 52 anos, portador de neoplasia prostática (Gleason 3 + 3), que deu entrada no pronto-socorro com quadro de lesão renal aguda, anemia normocrômica e normocítica e relato de fratura patológica. Encaminhado para o hospital geral, foi iniciada a investigação do quadro. Alguns achados em exames laboratoriais, como inversão da relação albumina-globulina e lesões líticas em exame de imagem, fizeram os médicos levantarem um importante diagnóstico diferencial no contexto de metástase óssea e neoplasias: o mieloma múltiplo. Diante disso, foi indicado aspirado de medula óssea e imunofetipagem, que, surpreendentemente, teve como resultado principal a presença de 12% de células plasmocitárias com caraterísticas anômalas. O tratamento inicial foi estabelecido com dexametasona, ciclofosfamida e pamidronato com melhora progressiva dos parâmetros laboratoriais e clínicos, sendo encaminhado para acompanhamento ambulatorial em cidade de origem com onco-hematologista e urologista.


This study describes the case of a 52-year-old male patient with prostate cancer (Gleason 3+3) admitted to the emergency room with acute kidney injury, normochromic and normocytic anemia, and a pathological fracture report. The patient was referred to the General Hospital to investigate the condition. Laboratory tests indicated inversion of the albumin-globulin ratio and imaging exams evinced lytic lesions, leading physicians to raise an important differential diagnosis in the context of bone metastases and neoplasms: multiple myeloma. Bone marrow aspirate and immunophetyping indicated the presence of 12% plasma cells with anomalous characteristics. After initial treatment with dexamethasone, cyclophosphamide, and pamidronate, the patient showed progressive improvement in laboratory and clinical parameters, being referred for outpatient follow-up in the city of origin with an onco-hematologist and urologist.

ABSTRACT

O Mieloma Múltiplo é uma neoplasia maligna que acomete a medula óssea, sendo comumente diagnosticado em idosos. Para o tratamento no Sistema Único de Saúde (SUS) seguem-se as Diretrizes Diagnósticas e Terapêuticas do Mieloma Múltiplo do Ministério da Saúde, de 2015. O medicamento lenalidomida é um análogo da talidomida. A talidomida e lenalidomida são indicados para tratamento do mieloma. Ambos medicamentos causam efeitos teratogênicos nos fetos. A lenalidomida teve seu registro sanitário aprovado pela Agência Nacional de Vigilância Sanitária (ANVISA) para uso no país em dezembro de 2017. Os pacientes que necessitam do tratamento com o medicamento lenalidomida ingressam com processos judiciais para obtê-lo visto não constar da lista de medicamentos fornecidos pelo SUS. A diferença de preço dos dois medicamentos à base de lenalidomida fabricados e disponíveis no mundo é extremamente alta (Lenalid® e Revlimid®). No Brasil, somente o medicamento Revlimid® teve seu registro de patente junto ao Instituto Nacional de Propriedade Industrial e seu registro sanitário deferido junto à ANVISA, sendo o único autorizado para a comercialização no país, pela regulamentação da RDC ANVISA 191/2017. Considerando a política de Assistência Oncológica no Sistema Único de Saúde, o presente trabalho visou descrever o perfil dos processos judiciais para fornecimento do medicamento lenalidomida utilizada tratamento de Mieloma Múltiplo por determinações judiciais contra a Secretaria de Estado da Saúde de São Paulo. O perfil dos processos analisados confirma o observado na literatura sobre a judicialização da saúde, que, apesar de heterogênea e com características regionais, em muitos estudos, observa-se maior participação de pacientes oriundos de unidades de saúde privadas e assistentes jurídicos majoritariamente de advogados particulares. Além disso, os dados detectados/encontrados demonstraram que os pacientes são residentes em municípios com alto grau de desenvolvimento, segundo o Índice de Desenvolvimento Humano Municipal (IDHM), o qual atua como um indicador que avalia três dimensões do desenvolvimento humano: longevidade, educação e renda. Constatou-se também, pelo perfil dos processos judiciais descritos, a predominância de pacientes do sexo masculino. Descreveram-se os aspectos de regulamentação e de controle sanitário do medicamento lenalidomida, em comparação à talidomida no Brasil, além das normativas da ANVISA vigentes sobre o controle da substância lenalidomida, diante dos riscos associados (segurança do paciente - teratogênese) e as questões relativas a patente e fenômeno de judicialização da saúde no país.


Multiple myeloma is a malignant neoplasm that affects the bone marrow and is com-monly diagnosed in the elderly. For treatment in the Unified Health System (SUS), the Ministry of Health's 2015 Myeloma Diagnostic and Therapeutic Guidelines are followed. The medication lenalidomide is an analogue of thalidomide. Thalidomide and lenalidomide are indicated for the treatment of myeloma. Both drugs have teratogenic effects on fetuses. Lenalidomide had its health record approved by the National Health Surveillance Agency (ANVISA) for use in the country in December 2017. Patients who need treatment with the drug lenalidomide file lawsuits to obtain it since it is not on the list of drugs provided by SUS. The price difference of the two lenalidomide-based drugs manufactured and available worldwide is extremely high (Lenalid® and Revlimid®). In Brazil, only the drug Revlimid® had its patent registra-tion with the National Institute of Industrial Property and its sanitary registration granted with ANVISA, being the only one authorized for commercialization in the country, by the regulation of RDC ANVISA 191/2017. Considering the policy of Onco-logical Assistance in the Unified Health System, the present study aimed to describe the profile of the legal proceedings for the supply of the drug lenalidomide used in the treatment of Multiple Myeloma due to judicial orders against the São Paulo State De-partment of Health. The profile of the analyzed cases confirms that observed in the literature on the judicialization of health, which, although heterogeneous and with re-gional characteristics, in many studies, there is a greater participation of patients from private health units and legal assistants mostly from private lawyers . In addition, the data detected / found showed that patients are residents of municipalities with a high degree of development, according to the Municipal Human Development Index (MHDI), which acts as an indicator that assesses three dimensions of human devel-opment: longevity, education and income. It was also verified, by the profile of the judicial processes described, the predominance of male patients. The regulatory and sanitary control aspects of the drug lenalidomide were described, in comparison to thalidomide in Brazil, in addition to the ANVISA regulations in force on the control of the lenalidomide substance, in view of the associated risks (patient safety - teratogenesis) and the relative issues the patent and phenomenon of judicialization of health in the country.

ABSTRACT

OBJECTIVE@#To summarize and compare the clinical baseline characteristics of patients with monoclonal gammopathy of undetermined significance (MGUS), primary light chain amyloidosis (pAL), multiple myeloma (MM), or MM with concurrent amyloidosis, especially the differences in cytogenetic abnormalities.@*METHODS@#The clinical data of 15 cases of MGUS, 34 cases of pAL, 842 cases of MM and 23 cases of MM with concurrent amyloidosis were analyzed and compared retrospectively.@*RESULTS@#Cytogenetic statistics showed that the incidence of t (11; 14) in the four groups (MGUS vs pAL vs MM vs MM with concurrent amyloidosis) was 0%, 33.3%, 16.4%, and 15.8%, respectively (P=0.037); that of 13q deletion was 20.0%, 14.7%, 45.8% and 56.5%, respectively (P<0.001); gain of 1q21 was 50.0%, 12.5%, 47.4% and 40.9%, respectively (P=0.001). Proportion of pAL patients with 0, 1 and≥2 cytogenetic abnormalities (including 13q deletion, 17p deletion, 1q21 amplification and IgH translocation) accounted for 41.9%, 41.9% and 16.1%, respectively; while the proportion of the same category in MM was 17.6%, 27.3%, and 55.2% respectively; this ratio of MM with concurrent amyloidosis was more similar to MM. Subgroup analysis showed that genetic abnormalities (including 13q deletion, 17p deletion and 1q21 amplification) were comparable within t (11; 14) negative and positive groups. Compared with positive cases, t(11; 14) negative patients with MM or MGUS were more likely to have 13q deletions and multiple genetic abnormalities.@*CONCLUSION@#Clinical characteristics of pAL, especially cytogenetic abnormalities, are significantly different from MM with concurrent amyloidosis. It suggests that although the onset characteristics are similar, actually the two diseases belong to different disease subtypes which should be carefully predicted and identified.

ABSTRACT

OBJECTIVE@#To investigate the effect of the tripartite motif containing 31 (TRIM31) gene silencing on the proliferation and apoptosis of multiple myeloma cells and its possible mechanism.@*METHODS@#The normal bone marrow plasma cells (nPCs) were selected as control, and the mRNA and protein expression levels of TRIM31 in human multiple myeloma cell lines (U266, RPMI-8226, NCI-H929 and KMS-11) were detected by RT-qPCR and Western blot. Recombinant lentivirol vector containing shRNA-TRIM31 and its negative control were used to infect U266 cells respectively, and the mRNA expression level of TRIM31 in infected cells was detected by RT-qPCR. Then cell proliferation, colony forming and apoptosis were analyzed by CCK-8, soft agar assay, and flow cytometry, respectively. The protein expression levels of TRIM31, cleaved-caspase-3, BCL-2, Bax, p-Akt (Ser473), Akt and PI3K (p110α) were evaluated by Western blot. In addition, the PI3K/Akt signaling pathway-specific inhibitor LY294002 and TRIM31-shRNA lentivirus were used to interfere with U266 cells, and the cell proliferation, apoptosis, and protein expression of p-Akt (Ser473) and Akt were detected by CCK-8, flow cytometry and Western blot, respectively.@*RESULTS@#Compared with nPCs, the expression levels of TRIM31 mRNA and protein in U266, RPMI-8226, NCI-H929 and KMS-11 cells were significantly increased (P<0.001), especially in U266 cells. After lentivirus infection, the levels of TRIM31 mRNA and protein in U266 cells were significantly decreased (P<0.001). TRIM31 silencing significantly inhibited the proliferation of U266 cells (P<0.05), attenuated the ability of cell cloning, improved cell apoptosis, up-regulated the protein expressions of cleaved-caspase-3 and Bas as well as down-regulated expressions of BCL-2, p-Akt (Ser473) and PI3K (p110α). There was no significant effect on Akt protein. Intervention of LY294002 significantly enhanced the inhibition on cell proliferation and the promotion on apoptosis mediated by TRIM31 gene silencing in U266 cells.@*CONCLUSION@#TRIM31 gene silencing can inhibit U266 cell proliferation and promote its apoptosis, which may be closely related to inhibition of PI3K/Akt signaling pathway.

ABSTRACT

OBJECTIVE@#To investigate the effects of autophagy inhibitor ROC-325 and its combination with bortezomib on the proliferation, apoptosis and autophagy of multiple myeloma cell lines.@*METHODS@#Multiple myeloma cells were treated with ROC-325 at different concentration. The cell proliferation was detected by CCK-8. Apoptosis was determined by Caspase-3/7 and Caspase-9 activity assays. Autophagy was detected by monodansylcadaverine staining. The apoptosis-related proteins (PARP and Caspase-3) and autophagy-related proteins (P62, Beclin-1, and LC3A/B) were analyzed by Western blot. The combined effect with bortezomib on bortezomib-resistant cell line was detected by CCK-8.@*RESULTS@#ROC-325 inhibited the proliferation of RPMI 8226, RPMI 8226-BTZ100, U266 and IM9 cells in a dose-dependent manner (r=-0.8275, r=-0.9079, r=-0.9422, r=-0.9305), the 72 h IC@*CONCLUSION@#ROC-325 can inhibit the proliferation, induce the apoptosis of myeloma cells through the mitochondrial pathway, inhibit the autophagy of myeloma cells by affecting the fusion of autophagosomes and lysosomes, and overcome bortezomib resistance by the combination of ROC-325 with bortezomib.

ABSTRACT

OBJECTIVE@#To analyze one case of multiple myeloma (MM) initially presenting cold agglutinin syndrome (CAS), so as to improve clinical understanding and screening of this disease.@*METHODS@#The clinical data, laboratory examination, bone marrow result, diagnosis and treatment of the patient were analyzed and summarized to provide ideas and clinical experience for the early diagnosis and treatment of CAS secondary to MM.@*RESULTS@#The clinical manifestations of asthenia, hemolysis, jaundice and scattered livedo reticularis were caused by CAS secondary to MM, which was different from the general Raynaud's phenomenon. IgMκ type MM was definitely diagnosed according to the morphological features of bone marrow cells and immunofixation electrophoresis. After 3 courses of chemotherapy with BAD regimen and enhanced thermal support, anemia was corrected, M protein was decreased and the cold agglutinin phenomenon was significantly reduced. The evaluation of efficacy reached very good partial response.@*CONCLUSION@#There are very few MM patients with CAS as the initial presentation, so it is easy to misdiagnose. Early diagnosis and individual therapy are particularly important, which requires clinicians to observe and gain experience further.

ABSTRACT

OBJECTIVE@#To explore the influence of controlling nutritional status (CONUT) score on the prognosis of newly diagnosed patients with multiple myeloma (MM).@*METHODS@#The clinical data 119 patients with MM who were diagnosed according to the international myeloma diagnostic criteria in Lanzhou University Second Hospital from April 2010 to October 2018 were collected and retrospectively analyzed. The relationship between clinical indexes, including age, sex, MM type, absolute lymphocyte count (ALC), absolute neutrophil count (ANC), absolute monocyte count (AMC), hemoglobin (Hb), platelet (PLT), β@*RESULTS@#Compared with high-scoring group, low-scoring group had a better OS [median OS was 43.3 months and 127.67 months, respectively, 95% confidence interval (CI): 57.065-78.345, P=0.038]. At the same time, the low-scoring group also had higher level of ALC, ANC, AMC, Hb, PLT, ALB, and CHO but lower of GLO. Multivariate survival analysis showed that age (HR=1.027, 95%CI: 1.000-1.054, P=0.048), AMC (HR=11.284, 95%CI: 22.968-42.897, P<0.001), CONUT score (HR=1.198, 95%CI: 1.036-1.385, P=0.015), M protein (non-IgG/IgG type) type (HR=0.503, 95%CI: 0.259-0.977, P=0.043) were independent factors affecting the prognosis of MM patients.@*CONCLUSION@#The CONUT score as an immune-nutrition score is a convenient and easy-to-obtain index to effectively predict the prognosis of MM patients.

ABSTRACT

OBJECTIVE@#To summarize the clinical and Laboratory characteristics of patients with multiple myeloma (MM) and analyze the prognostic factors.@*METHODS@#Two hundred MM patients were retrospectively analyzed for the following parameters, including peripheral blood, bone marrow morphology, cytogenetics, clinical staging, and response to the chemotherapy in order to summarize related factors affecting overall survival (OS). The prognostic factors were also analyzed.@*RESULTS@#200 patients with MM were divided into 3 groups according to bone marrow plasma cell percentage (BMPC%) in bone marrow smears: <10% group (74 cases, 37.0%), 10%-50% group (75 cases, 37.5%), >50% group (51 cases, 25.5%). Compared with the other two groups, patients in BMPC%<10% group were characterized by lower clinical staging levels, lower rates of 13q14 deletion and t(11;14) positive, better response to chemotherapy and favorable three-year OS rate. The univariate analysis showed that prognostic factors indicating favorable outcome as evaluated by OS included age≤55 years old, BMPC%<10%, WBC<7.5×10@*CONCLUSION@#The clinical characteristics are different among MM patients with different BMPC% in bone marrow smears at initial diagnosis, and prognostic analysis shows that the BMPC% in bone marrow smears has an effect on OS rate. BMPC% in bone marrow smears at initial diagnosis, age, WBC, Hb, response to the fourth chemotherapy are also the main factors impacting the prognosis of patients.

ABSTRACT

OBJECTIVE@#To investigate the expression of CD56 in multiple myeloma (MM) cells and its relationship between extramedullary disease and extramedullary relapse.@*METHODS@#Clinical data of 99 patients with MM treated in our hospital from January 2015 to December 2019 was retrospectively analyzed. The patients were divided into positive group and negative group according to the expression of CD56. The relationship between CD56 and multiple myeloma extramedullary disease, extramedullary relapse was analyzed.@*RESULTS@#Among 99 newly diagnosed patients with MM, the positive rate of CD56 was 65%, and the incidence of extramedullary disease of patients in the CD56 positive group was lower than that in the CD56 negative group (17.19% vs 48.57%) (P<0.01). Meanwhile, the incidence of extramedullary relapse of patients in the CD56 positive group was lower than that in the CD56 negative group (1.56% vs 34.29%) (P<0.01).@*CONCLUSION@#CD56 is highly expressed in MM, and its low expression is associated with the occurrence of extramedullary disease and extramedullary relapse, which suggests that CD56 may be an important indicator for predicting the occurrence of extramedullary disease and extramedullary relapse.

ABSTRACT

OBJECTIVE@#To explore the clinical features, prognosis and survival of patients with IgD multiple myeloma (MM).@*METHODS@#The clinical data of 20 patients with IgD MM was analyzed retrospectively. The prognostic factors and survival analysis was carried out. We summarized their clinical characteristics. The survival analysis was carried out by Kaplan-Meier method, and the prognostic factor were analyzed by using log-rank test for single factor analysis of observation index. Variables of P<0.15 in single factor analysis were enrolled in multifactor cox regression analysis.@*RESULTS@#IgD MM patients accounted for 4.3% of all MM patients in the same period, among which 80% were male, the median age of patients was 57.5(35-77) years old, 90% of the patients belongs to λ light chain type. At the time of diagnosis, 18 patients (90%) were in DS-Ⅲ stages, while 10 patients were in ISS-Ⅲ stage. The first clinical manifestations were fatigue, bone pain, kidney function impairment, anemia (Hb<100 g/L) in 14 cases (70%), 12 cases (60%) with osteolytic bone destruction≥3, combined with renal impairment in 8 cases (40%), and elevated blood calcium in 11 cases (51.4%). In only 5 patients the ratio of albumin to globntin was inverted, hypoalbuminemia accounted for 40%, and globulin increase accounted for only 15%. FISH results showed that the positive rate of 1q21 amplification (50%) was the highest, and it was easy to occur at the same time as other cytogenetic abnormalities. Extramedullary infiltration occurred in 4 cases (20%). The analysis of prognostic factors showed that only the increase of lactate dehydrogenase (LDH) level was an independent poor prognostic factor for IgD MM patients. Extramedullary infiltration and various cytogenetic abnormalities were found in 2 IgD MM patients with primary drug resistance, suggesting that extramedullary infiltration and various cytogenetic abnormalities may be prognostic factors, but the difference was not statistically significant, Which maybe related to the small sample size. All 20 patients were treated with bortezomib-containing regimen, of which 19 patients were evaluated, 17 patients (89.4%) showed effective, including CR+VGPR (52.6%), PR (31.5%), MR (5.3%), 2 patients primary drug resistance. The median PFS and OS was 9.5 and 10.5 months, respectively.@*CONCLUSION@#IgD MM is a rare and invasive disease. Increased LDH is an independent prognostic factor. Bortizomib-containing regimen can improve the prognosis of IgD MM patients.

ABSTRACT

OBJECTIVE@#To investigate the clinical efficacy and prognosis of patients with multiple myeloma (MM) treated by long-term maintenance lenalidomide treatment.@*METHODS@#A total of 97 patients diagnosed as MM in the Department of Hematology of First Affiliated Hospital of Guangzhou University of Chinese Medicine from 2012 to 2019 were selected, and the basic clinical characteristics and laboratory indicators of the patients were tested and evaluated. After long-term maintenance lenalidomide treatment for patients with MM, the short-term and long-term clinical efficacy and the incidence of adverse reactions were evaluated, and factors affecting the prognosis of the patients were analyzed.@*RESULTS@#Before maintenance treatment, 47.42% of the patients (46/97) did not achieve complete remission (CR), among 52.58% (51/97) of CR patients, there were 20.62% of the patients showed minimal residual leukemia (MRD) negative. After lenalidomide maintenance treatment, the patients who did not achieve CR were reduced to 24.74% (24/97), among 75.26% (73/97) of the patients with CR, there were 47.42% of the patients showed MRD negative, the difference showed statistically significant (P<0.001). After maintenance treatment, the median pro-gression-free survival of the patients was 58 months, and the 5-year survival rate was 89.69%. The incidence of adverse reactions was 40.21% (39/97), including neutropenia (31/39, 79.49%), fatigue (21/39, 53.85%), thrombocytopenia (17/39, 43.59%) and gastrointestinal reaction (15/39, 38.46%) were the most common. The discontinuation rate was 24.74% (24/97), and the median time for discontinuation was 21 months. The main reasons for discontinuation were neutropenia (12/24, 50.00%) , thrombocytopenia (8/24, 33.33%) and gastrointestinal reactions accounted for 8.33% (2/24). Old age and positive MRD were the risk factors affecting the prognosis of the patients. The adjusted OR was 1.43 (95% CI 1.03-1.76, P=0.034) and 3.78 (95% CI 2.56-9.56, P=0.037), respectively.@*CONCLUSION@#The long-term maintenance lenalidomide treatment shows a good clinical effect on patients with MM, and MRD detection can assist the cilinical judge the prognosis of the patients. During maintenance treatment, the clinical symptoms, especially blood system damage of the patients should be take care, so as to avoid serious adverse reactions.

ABSTRACT

OBJECTIVE@#To assess the impact of early relapse (ER) after autologous hematopoietic stem cell transplan-tation (AHSCT) on overall survival (OS) for multiple myeloma (MM) patients.@*METHODS@#Clinical data of 37 patients with MM undergoing AHSCT in department of hematology of Shanxi Bethune Hospital from January 2012 to December 2017 were retrospectively analyzed. The effect of ER on OS of patients was analyzed. The effects of international staging system (ISS) staging, cytogenetics, pre-transplant efficacy, minimal residual disease, and age on OS of the patients were also analyzed respectively.@*RESULTS@#Among the 37 patients, 13 cases (35.1%) had ER, and 24 cases (64.9%) had non-ER. 3 patients with ER had extramedullary disease, but none with non-ER showed extramedullary disease. More than or equal to very good partial rate (VGPR) in patients with ER and without ER were 3 cases (23.1%) and 15 cases (62.5%), respectively, and the curative effect of the former was significantly lower than that of the latter (P<0.05). The median follow-up time was 31 (12-96) months, and median OS time was 93 months in all the patients. The median survival time of patients with ER was 17 months, and the median progression free survival was 7 months, both were significantly shorter than 93 months and 38 months of patients with non-ER (P<0.05). Univariate analysis showed that the OS was affected by ER, cytogenetic abnormalities (FISH), and ≥VGPR before transplantation. Multivariate analysis showed that ER was an independent prognostic factor.@*CONCLUSION@#The prognosis of patients with ER after AHSCT in newly diagnosed MM is poor. ER is an independent prognostic factor of survival.

ABSTRACT

OBJECTIVE@#To analyze the influence of serum homocysteine (Hcy) levels to the prognosis of newly diagnosed multiple myeloma (MM) patients, and to explore related factors affecting the prognosis of the patients.@*METHODS@#The clinical pathological data of 180 newly diagnosed MM patients treated in our hospital from March 2013 to February 2015 were collected, and the patients were divided into high and low Hcy groups based on the median Hcy. The survival curves of the patients in the two groups were drawn to compare the differences of the survival; univariate and multivariate survival analysis was used to observe the influence of serum cysteine to the prognosis of newly diagnosed MM patients; the clinicopathological data of the patients with high and low Hcy in the two groups was compared, Pearson test was used to further analyzes the relationship between Hcy and different factors, and explores the related factors of Hcy affecting the prognosis of the patients.@*RESULTS@#The median survival times of patients in the high and low Hcy groups were 32 (5-59) and 41 (7-71) months, respectively. The 3-year survival rate of the patients in high Hcy group was significantly lower than those in low Hcy group, and the difference shows statistically significant (P<0.05). The results of univariate survival analysis showed that the OS of newly diagnosed MM patients whom with advanced age, high bone disease grade, high-level bone marrow plasma cell count, LDH, C-reactive protein, Cr, β@*CONCLUSION@#Serum Hcy level has a correlation trend with the survival of newly diagnosed MM, which is affected by factors such as Hb.
