Julie Vose, MD, MBA, and Merav Bar, MD, on CAR T-Cell Therapy: Late Effects of CD19-Targeted Treatment
2018 ASH Annual Meeting & Exposition
Julie Vose, MD, MBA, of the University of Nebraska Medical Center, and Merav Bar, MD, of the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center, discuss study findings on the long-term effects in people with relapsed or refractory non-Hodgkin lymphoma and chronic lymphocytic leukemia who received CD19-targeted CAR T-cell infusions, survived more than a year, and had at least 1 year of follow-up data after their first treatment (Abstract 223).
Julie Vose, MD, MBA, of the University of Nebraska Medical Center, and Loretta J. Nastoupil, MD, of The University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center, discuss findings from a multicenter study of axicabtagene ciloleucel CD19 CAR T-cell therapy for relapsed or refractory aggressive B-cell lymphoma when used as a standard of care (Abstract 91).
Steven M. Horwitz, MD, of Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center, discusses phase IIa study findings on the novel SYK/JAK inhibitor cerdulatinib for relapsed/refractory peripheral T-cell lymphoma and cutaneous T-cell lymphoma (Abstract 1001).
John P. Leonard, MD, of Weill Cornell Medicine/Cornell University, discusses phase III findings on lenalidomide plus rituximab vs rituximab plus placebo for people with relapsed or refractory indolent non-Hodgkin lymphoma (Abstract 445).
Laurie H. Sehn, MD, MPH, of the British Columbia Cancer Centre for Lymphoid Cancer, discusses a study by the Lunenburg Lymphoma Biomarker Consortium that confirmed previous reports on the negative prognostic impact of an underlying MYC-translocation for both progression-free and overall survival in diffuse large B-cell lymphoma (Abstract 344).
Paul Richardson, MD, of Dana-Farber Cancer Institute, discusses updated results and the first report on progression-free survival for melflufen therapy administered to people with multiple myeloma that is refractory to daratumumab and/or pomalidomide (Abstract 600).
