Burkitt Lymphoma (BL) Therapeutics Market : Emerging Trends, Business Growth Opportunities, Major Driving Factors

Press Release

Burkitt lymphoma (BL) may be defined as an aggressive rare disorder that constitutes approximately 1% to 2% of all non-Hodgkin lymphomas. Burkitt lymphoma is known as one of the most aggressive forms of lymphoma, with a doubling time of approximately 24 hours. The term was coined after an Irish surgeon named Denis Burkitt, who first described the lymphoma in 1958, and was the first to successfully compile description of significant number of cases with the disorder. A range of intensive therapy regimen is available to choose from which depends upon local practice. The CODOX-M/IVAC is the most commonly administered regimen, first introduced as pediatric regimen in 1980 by Magrath

Various regimen for Burkitt lymphoma (BL) are R-CODOX-M/IVAC regimen, BFM/GMALL/NHL regimen, Hyper-CVAD regimen, CALGB and LMB regimen, DA-EPOCH-R regimen, and other high-intensive regimens. Burkitt lymphoma is represented by three clinical sub-types: endemic Burkitt lymphoma (eBL), immunodeficiency-associated Burkitt lymphoma (iBL), and sporadic (sBL). These clinical sub-types share similar morphological and immunophenotypic features, while conform largely with respect to genetic makeup, and differ in exhibiting few clinical features as well as incidence pattern. Sporadic Burkitt lymphoma (sBL) is a rare disorder generally affecting all age groups. It accounts for approximately 1% of adult lymphomas and reported in areas lacking endemic malaria. Endemic Burkitt lymphoma (eBL) is predominantly a pediatric disease or disorder, accounting for about 30% to 50% of pediatric cancer in regions with holoendemic malaria. Endemic Burkitt lymphoma (eBL) clinically differs by affecting facial bones especially the jaw. Immunodeficiency-associated Burkitt lymphoma (iBL) accounts for 10% to 40% of all HIV (Human Immunodeficiency Virus) associated lymphomas and was the first to be recognized in HIV setting.

The CODOX-M/IVAC regimen includes cytarabine, cyclophosphamide, doxorubicin, etoposide, high-dose cytarabine, IT methotrexate, leucovorin, vincristine/ifosfamide. BFM/GMALL/NHL regimen generally consists of pre-phase treatment with prednisone and cyclophosphamide, which is then commenced by alternating chemotherapy with six cycles including doxorubicin, dexamethasone, ifosfamide, high-dose methotrexate, teniposide, cytarabine, and vincristine.

It also includes triple IT therapy with cytarabine, dexamethasone, and methotrexate. Hyper-CVAD regimen which was initially developed for acute lymphoblastic leukemia includes four cycles of hyperfractionated cyclophosphamide, dexamethasone, vincristine, and doxorubicin. CALGB and LMB regimens utilize prednisone and cyclophosphamide as a pre-phase cycle, followed by alternating chemotherapy cycles depending upon the risk. DA-EPOCH-R regimen consists of different approach with low concentration chemotherapy agents being exposed for long period of time as compared to that of other high-intensive regimen, comprising infusional EPOCH (cyclophosphamide, etoposide, doxorubicin, vincristine, and prednisone). This regimen is specifically used in order to provide continuous exposure of cytotoxic agents to tumor cells and to bring about decrease in toxicity. Many variations of short-cycle, high intensive regimens are being developed and used in addition to these regimens.
