Objective. To evaluate results of the 7-year experience in treatment of multiple myeloma (MM) with proteasome inhibitor (bortezomib) in the Novosibirsk Municipal Hematological Center.

Methods. 199 MM patients treated in the Novosibirsk Municipal Hematological Center over the period from July, 2006, till December, 2014, were enrolled in the study. The median age of patients was 68 years (varied from 36 to 81). 98 patients received bortezomib as the first line therapy and 101 patients as the second line.

Results. The overall response rate of the first line therapy was 78.5 %; at that, 25 % of patients achieved a complete and almost complete remission. The median time to achieve response was 72 days. With the progression or refractory MM, the efficacy of bortezomib as a part of a combined antitumor therapy was 68.3 %. Bortezomib proved to be effective when its administration was resumed by patients who had received bortezomib and other components of the combined regimen previously (overall response: 68.4 %). The median overall survival rate has not been achieved, and 7-year survival rate was 70 %. Adverse events of bortezomib were predictable and manageable; the most relevant of them included gastrointestinal and hematologic disorders, fatigue, and peripheral neuropathy.

Conclusion. Bortezomib is a highly effective drug, which plays an important role in the treatment of MM as the first and subsequent line therapies; its administration results in significant increase in patients’ overall survival.

Keywords: multiple myeloma, effectiveness of treatment, bortezomib, overall survival.

Over the past decade, major research centers with large databases in Europe and the USA have conducted a comprehensive analysis of the effectiveness of treatment programs, delayed treatment-related complications and long-term survival of patients with advanced stage Hodgkin’s lymphoma. This analysis allowed us to develop new, more effective programs and introduce them into practical medicine, as well as to start searching for less toxic treatment options. However, in Russian scientific literature, this complex analysis has not been presented. Available publications and scientific investigations cover only some aspects of diagnosis and treatment of Hodgkin’s lymphoma or selectively discuss the problem of complications. The proposed literature review allows the reader to see the changes in the approach to management of advanced-stage Hodgkin’s lymphoma over the last 75 years: from absolutely pessimistic prognosis for the disease to modern high achievements with further improvement of treatment options for this disease.

Keywords: Hodgkin’s lymphoma, advanced stages, treatment, effectiveness of treatment, toxicity.
