Whole Body PET-MRI in Paediatric and Adolescent Lymphoma

2016-10-18 02:08:21 | BioPortfolio

Summary

Children and adolescents with Hodgkin lymphoma currently undergo multiple investigations including a separate PET and MRI scans during their treatment.

Investigators want to investigate if a combined PET-MRI scan could give the same information.

Children who join our study will have an extra scan twice during their treatment

Description

Children and adolescents with Hodgkin lymphoma currently undergo multiple investigations including a separate PET and MRI scans during their treatment.

Investigators want to investigate if a combined PET-MRI scan could give the same information.

Children who join our study will have an extra scan twice during their treatment

Routine whole body clinical MRI will be performed according to current clinical standard of care. Axial and coronal imaging from the maxilla to proximal femurs will be performed using a combination of T1 and T2 weighted sequences, with and without gadolinium administration.

Prospective Comparison Between FDG-PET/MR and FDG-PET/CT in Classical Hodgkin Lymphoma and DLBC Non-Hodgkin Lymphoma

According to the most recent guidelines, total-body imaging techniques are an indispensable element in the staging and post-treatment re-evaluation in patients with lymphoma. Fluorodeoxygl...

Combined CT Colonography and PET Imaging in Mantle Cell Lymphoma

The goal of this clinical research study is to learn if PET/CT scanning can be used to detect mantle cell lymphoma in the colon. Researchers want to learn if PET/CT scanning can produce g...

A Study for Patients With Non-Hodgkin's Lymphomas

In this study, all patients will get investigational drug. There will be no comparator drug. This study will evaluate three tumor types: T-cell lymphoma, Indolent B-cell lymphoma, and A...

Adjuvant Low Dose Total Body Irradiation in Elderly Patients With Diffuse Large B-Cell Lymphoma

The purpose of this study is to determine whether the application of low dose total body irradiation following chemo-immuntherapy in elderly patients with aggressive with non-Hodgkin's lym...

Study of Pralatrexate to Treat Patients With Relapsed or Refractory B-cell Non-Hodgkin's Lymphoma

The purpose of this study is to determine whether pralatrexate, given with vitamin B12 and folic acid, is effective in the treatment of relapsed or refractory B-cell Non-Hodgkin's lymphoma...

Evidence for a Mesothelial Origin of Body Cavity Effusion Lymphomas.

Primary effusion lymphoma (PEL) is a Kaposi's sarcoma herpes virus (KSHV)-induced lymphoma that typically arises in body cavities of HIV-infected patients. PEL cells are often co-infected with Epstein...

Primary adrenal non-Hodgkin lymphoma: a case report and review of the literature.

Lymphomas are cancers that arise from the white blood cells and have been traditionally divided into two large subtypes: Hodgkin and non-Hodgkin lymphoma. B-cell lymphoma is the most common subtype of...

A Case Series of diffuse large B-cell lymphoma and burkitt lymphoma presenting with peritoneal lymphomatosis.

Non-Hodgkin lymphoma (NHL) can occur at any site of the body, however diffuse and extensive involvement of the peritoneal cavity occurs rarely. Diffuse large B-cell lymphoma (DLBCL) is one of the domi...

Increased body mass index is associated with improved overall survival in extranodal natural killer/T-cell lymphoma, nasal type.

The role of body mass index (BMI) in lymphoma survival outcomes is controversial. The prognostic significance of BMI in extranodal natural killer (NK)/T-cell lymphoma (ENKTL) is unclear. We evaluated ...

Silent presentation of multiple metastasis Burkitt lymphoma in a child: A case report and review of the literature.

The Burkitt lymphoma (BL) is a very aggressive B-cell non-Hodgkin's lymphoma. It accounts for 34% of lymphoma cases in children.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

A leukemia/lymphoma found predominately in children and young adults and characterized LYMPHADENOPATHY and THYMUS GLAND involvement. It most frequently presents as a lymphoma, but a leukemic progression in the bone marrow is common.

B-cell lymphoid tumors that occur in association with AIDS. Patients often present with an advanced stage of disease and highly malignant subtypes including BURKITT LYMPHOMA; IMMUNOBLASTIC LARGE-CELL LYMPHOMA; PRIMARY EFFUSION LYMPHOMA; and DIFFUSE, LARGE B-CELL, LYMPHOMA. The tumors are often disseminated in unusual extranodal sites and chromosomal abnormalities are frequently present. It is likely that polyclonal B-cell lymphoproliferation in AIDS is a complex result of EBV infection, HIV antigenic stimulation, and T-cell-dependent HIV activation.

A form of undifferentiated malignant LYMPHOMA usually found in central Africa, but also reported in other parts of the world. It is commonly manifested as a large osteolytic lesion in the jaw or as an abdominal mass. B-cell antigens are expressed on the immature cells that make up the tumor in virtually all cases of Burkitt lymphoma. The Epstein-Barr virus (HERPESVIRUS 4, HUMAN) has been isolated from Burkitt lymphoma cases in Africa and it is implicated as the causative agent in these cases; however, most non-African cases are EBV-negative.

Two or more distinct types of malignant lymphoid tumors occurring within a single organ or tissue at the same time. It may contain different types of non-Hodgkin lymphoma cells or both Hodgkin and non-Hodgkin lymphoma cells.

A systemic, large-cell, non-Hodgkin, malignant lymphoma characterized by cells with pleomorphic appearance and expressing the CD30 ANTIGEN. These so-called "hallmark" cells have lobulated and indented nuclei. This lymphoma is often mistaken for metastatic carcinoma and MALIGNANT HISTIOCYTOSIS.
