The FDA said that its research showed the risk of developing breast-implant associated (BIA) ALCL
with Allergan's Biocell textured implants was "approximately six times the risk of BIA-ALCL with textured implants from other manufacturers marketing in the US."
(TOKYO: 4519) announced today that it filed an application for ALK Inhibitor, Alecensa[R] capsule 150 mg (generic name: alectinib) to MHLW for an additional indication of recurrent or refractory ALK fusion gene-positive anaplastic large cell lymphoma (ALK-positive ALCL
"Recently however, it has been hypothesized that the relationship of ALCL
with the placement of textured silicone implants may not [be] limited to the breast due to its multifactorial nature and association with texturization of the implant surface," they added.
Food and Drug Administration (FDA) identified over 450 cases of (www.ibtimes.com/rare-type-cancer-linked-breast-implants-2761312) ALCL
caused by breast implants in the past eight years.
National Comprehensive Cancer Network (NCCN) guidelines recommend that if patients with primary refractory or relapsed PTCL-NOS, ALK-negative ALCL
, AITL, or enteropathy-associated T-cell lymphoma had intention to transplantation, allo-HSCT should be considered.
The final histopathologic diagnosis was that of a CD30-positive lymphoproliferative disorder according to the WHO classification, the differential including anaplastic large cell lymphoma (ALCL
) and LyP.
ALK positivity was initially considered evidence of systemic ALCL
; however, ALK+ cases of PC-ALCL have been described, mainly in children (1, 6).

Anaplastic large cell lymphoma (ALCL
) is a rare nonHodgkin T-cell lymphoma characterized by large lymphoid cells with abundant cytoplasm, pleomorphic, horseshoeshaped nuclei, and uniform CD30/Ki-1 expression [1, 4, 5].
The predominant subtype is diffuse large B-cell lymphoma (DLBCL); however follicular (FL), small lymphocytic (SLL), marginal zone (MZL), and anaplastic large cell lymphoma (ALCL
) have been described [1, 4].
Many complications are reported inherent to breast silicone implants, such as late seroma, infections, rejections, intraand extracapsular ruptures, contractures, and more recently, anaplastic large cell lymphoma (ALCL
Merck) used were Na 2 CO 3 , CaCl 2 , NaHCO 3 , K 2 HPO 4 , CH 3 COONa, KCl, CaSO 4 , KNO 3 , KI, MgSO 4 , AlCl
The patient remains in good health, being three years post initial presentation with the diagnosis of ALCL
(1) According to that study, diffuse large B-cell lymphoma (DLBCL) is the most prevalent form, while anaplastic large cell lymphoma (ALCL
), lymphoblastic lymphoma, and Burkitt-like lymphoma are forms with lower prevalence.
The FDA does caution there is a "very low but increased risk" of developing analplastic large cell lymphoma (ALCL
) from implants.
