In Landmark Study, an Arthritis Drug Appears to Prevent Deadly Acute Graft-versus-host Disease after Bone Marrow Transplant News

In Landmark Study, an Arthritis Drug Appears to Prevent Deadly Acute Graft-versus-host Disease after Bone Marrow Transplant

An immune-suppressing drug normally used to treat rheumatoid arthritis could make bone marrow transplant safer, report researchers at Dana-Farber/Boston Children’s Cancer and Blood Disorders Center. In a Phase 2 multi-center trial, the drug abatacept (ORENCIA®) reduced rates of severe, acute graft-versus-host disease (GVHD) and boosted rates of survival without acute GVHD or relapse in patients with leukemia and other blood cancers.

Study Underscores Need for Multidisciplinary Care for COVID-19 Long-Haulers

Physicians across the country have analyzed the emerging scientific data about the long-term effects of COVID-19, creating an initial knowledge base about the clinical experiences of so-called “long-haulers” – patients with COVID-19 who experience prolonged symptoms and/or the emergence of new ones well after the initial viral infection has resolved. A comprehensive review published today in Nature Medicine offers an initial glimpse of the multi-organ effects of long-term COVID-19 and suggests a framework for the care of COVID-19 long-haulers through dedicated, multidisciplinary clinics.

Dana-Farber Research Leads to Better Understanding of the Immune System in Kidney Cancer

In the last two decades, immunotherapy has emerged as a leading treatment for advanced renal carcinoma cancer (more commonly known as kidney cancer). This therapy is now part of the standard of care, but it doesn’t work for all patients, and almost all patients, no matter how they respond initially, become more resistant to treatment over time.
