SARS-CoV-2 Vaccination IgG Antibody Responses in Patients with Hematologic Malignancies in a Myeloid Enriched Cohort: A Single Center Observation
Keywords:SARS-CoV-2 Vaccination, Hematologic Malignancy, Antibody Response
Objective. Patients diagnosed with hematologic malignancies are at increased risk for severe SARS-CoV-2 infection. We evaluated the serological IgG response following two doses of the SARS-CoV-2 vaccine in patients with hematologic malignancies.
Methods. Patients treated at UT Southwestern Medical Center with a diagnosis of a myeloid or lymphoid neoplasm were included. SARS-CoV-2 vaccination response was defined as a positive quantifiable spike IgG antibody titer.
Results. Sixty patients were included in the study and 60% were diagnosed with a myeloid neoplasm. The majority (85%) of the patients with a myeloid malignancy and 50% of the patients with a lymphoid malignancy mounted a serological response after receiving two doses of the vaccine.
Conclusion. Vaccination should be offered irrespective of ongoing treatment or active disease. Findings require validation in a larger cohort of patients.
