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).
Alok A. Khorana, MD, of the Cleveland Clinic, discusses study findings on rivaroxaban thromboprophylaxis in high-risk ambulatory patients, which showed a reduction in venous thromboembolism and related death (Abstract LBA1).
Anas Younes, MD, of Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center, discusses trial findings on ibrutinib plus rituximab, cyclophosphamide, doxorubicin, vincristine, and prednisone in people with previously untreated non–germinal center B-cell–like diffuse large B-cell lymphoma (Abstract 784).
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).
Alexander B. Pine, MD, PhD, of Yale School of Medicine, discusses a survey gathering data on health-care providers’ practices and preferences in using direct oral anticoagulant therapy to treat venous thromboembolism.
Readers of The ASCO Post are invited to participate in this research by completing the survey, entitled: “Perspectives and Practices in Utilization of Direct Oral Anticoagulants in Patients With Cancer-Associated Venous Thromboembolism.” The survey takes approximately 3 to 4 minutes to complete and can be taken on a mobile device or a computer.

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).
