European Hematology Association : la réponse humorale au vaccin Pfizer/BioNTech BNT162b2 est altérée chez les patients recevant un CAR-T ou un traitement immunosuppresseur de haute intensité

Published

on

LA HAYE, Pays-Bas, 12 juin 2021 /PRNewswire/ — Le vaccin Pfizer/BioNTech BNT162b2 a été approuvé pour la prévention de l’infection par le coronavirus 2 du syndrome respiratoire aigu sévère (SRAS-CoV-2) et est recommandé pour les patients immunodéprimés. Cependant, son efficacité et son innocuité chez les patients suivant une thérapie cellulaire immunologique n’ont pas été bien documentées. Dans le cadre de cette étude, nous avons évalué l’efficacité et l’innocuité du vaccin BNT162b2 chez les patients ayant subi une greffe de cellules hématopoïétiques (HCT) et un traitement au récepteur d’antigène chimérique (CAR)-T. Nous avons suivi prospectivement 79 patients vaccinés ayant été activement traités au Centre médical Sourasky de Tel Aviv et surveillé le profil d’innocuité et la réponse immunitaire humorale au vaccin.

Dans l’ensemble, le vaccin a été bien toléré et tous les effets indésirables se sont résorbés en quelques jours, à l’exception d’un rejet de greffe secondaire, qui fait toujours l’objet d’une enquête. Nous avons observé que seulement 36 % des patients ayant reçu un traitement CAR-T ont développé une réponse aux anticorps humoraux comparativement à 81 % des patients ayant subi une TSS allogénique. De plus, les patients atteints d’aplasie des cellules B et ceux ayant reçu le vaccin peu après la perfusion de cellules étaient moins susceptibles de développer des anticorps. Prises ensemble, ces données démontrent que la réponse humorale au vaccin BNT162b2 est significativement altérée chez les patients recevant le CAR-T, par opposition à ceux ayant reçu une TSS allogénique ayant une bonne réponse.

EHA:Eficacia de la vacuna Pfizer/BioNTech BNT162b2 en pacientes que reciben CAR-T

– European Hematology Association:La respuesta humoral a la vacuna Pfizer/BioNTech BNT162b2 se ve afectada en pacientes que reciben CAR-T o terapia inmunosupresora de alta intensidad

LA HAYA, Países Bajos, 12 de junio de 2021 /PRNewswire/ — La vacuna Pfizer/BioNTech BNT162b2 ha sido aprobada para la prevención del síndrome respiratorio agudo severo por coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2) y se recomienda para pacientes inmunosuprimidos. Sin embargo, su eficacia y seguridad en pacientes sometidos a terapia celular inmunológica no han sido bien documentadas. En este estudio, evaluamos la eficacia y seguridad de la vacuna BNT162b2 en pacientes que se sometieron a trasplante de células hematopoyéticas (HCT) y terapia con receptor de antígeno quimérico (CAR) -T. Seguimos prospectivamente a 79 pacientes vacunados que fueron tratados activamente en el Centro Médico Sourasky de Tel Aviv y monitoreamos el perfil de seguridad y la respuesta inmune humoral a la vacuna.

En general, la vacuna fue bien tolerada y todos los efectos secundarios se resolvieron en unos pocos días, excepto un rechazo secundario del injerto, que aún está bajo investigación. Observamos que solo el 36% de los pacientes que recibieron terapia CAR-T desarrollaron una respuesta humoral de anticuerpos en comparación con el 81% de los pacientes que se sometieron a un HCT alogénico. Además, los pacientes con aplasia de células B y los que recibieron la vacuna poco después de la infusión de células tenían menos probabilidades de desarrollar anticuerpos. Tomados en conjunto, estos datos demuestran que la respuesta humoral a la vacuna BNT162b2 está significativamente alterada en los pacientes que reciben CAR-T, a diferencia de aquellos después de un HCT alogénico que tuvieron una buena respuesta.

European Hematology Association: Overall Survival Benefit Established With Daratumumab Plus Lenalidomide and Dexamethasone (D-Rd) in Elderly Patients with Transplant-ineligible Newly Diagnosed Multiple Myeloma (NDMM): Long-Term Interim Analysis of the MAIA Study

Published

on

THE HAGUE, Netherlands, June 12, 2021 /PRNewswire/ — The phase 3 MAIA study evaluated D-Rd versus Rd in 737 patients who were ineligible for high-dose chemotherapy and autologous stem cell transplantation. The primary analysis of MAIA demonstrated a 44% reduction in the risk of disease progression or death after treatment with D-Rd compared with Rd alone. At a median follow-up of almost 5 years (56.2 months), we now report the pre-specified interim overall survival analysis of MAIA.

The addition of daratumumab to Rd treatment significantly reduced the risk of death by 32% (hazard ratio, 0.68; 95% confidence interval [CI], 0.53-0.86; P=0.0013) with an estimated 5-year overall survival rate of 66.3% in the D-Rd group compared with 53.1% in the Rd alone group. These results are despite 46% of patients who received subsequent therapy in the Rd arm receiving daratumumab. Similarly, the significant progression-free survival benefit of D-Rd versus Rd that was identified in the primary analysis was maintained, with a 47% reduction in the risk of disease progression or death (HR, 0.53; 95% CI, 0.43-0.66; P<0.0001) and an estimated 60-month progression-free survival rate of 52.5% versus 28.7%, respectively; these data provide a new PFS benchmark for patients with NDMM who are transplant ineligible. The high overall response rate (93% vs 82%) further demonstrated the added clinical benefit of D-Rd versus Rd alone. No new safety concerns were identified for D-Rd and the most common (>15%) grade 3/4 treatment-emergent adverse events for D-Rd and Rd were neutropenia (54% vs 37%), pneumonia (19% vs 11%), anemia (17% vs 22%), and lymphopenia (16% and 11%). In conclusion, the clinical benefit from the primary analysis of the MAIA study was maintained through 5 years of follow-up and the benefit of upfront D-Rd given to progression was confirmed with a significant OS improvement, further supporting the use of frontline daratumumab as a new standard of care for patients with transplant-ineligible NDMM.

The results of this study will be presented by Prof. Thierry Facon on Saturday, June 12.
