2021 Pan Pacific Lymphoma Conference
David S. Kroll, MD, of Brigham and Women’s Hospital, discusses the symptoms of distress in patients with lymphoma and other oncologic malignancies, risk factors for poor outcomes, and how best to approach the management of depression and anxiety in this population.
Stephen M. Ansell, MD, PhD, of the Mayo Clinic, and Bruce D. Cheson, MD, of the Lymphoma Research Foundation, engage in a lively debate about CAR T-cell therapy, how it fits in with immunotherapy and nonchemotherapy approaches, and how to decide which treatment is right for which patient, especially given the many challenges of obtaining CAR T cells.
James O. Armitage, MD, of the University of Nebraska Medical Center, discusses various treatment regimens for patients with Hodgkin lymphoma, including BEACOPP, brentuximab vedotin, ABVD, A-AVD, nivolumab, and pembrolizumab—and the factors to consider when choosing among them.
Alison J. Moskowitz, MD, of Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center, discusses the combination ABVD (doxorubicin, bleomycin, vinblastine, and dacarbazine), individualized approaches for treating patients with Hodgkin lymphoma, and novel methods for risk stratification.
Peihua Lu, MD, of Lu Daopei Hospital, discusses the state of research in China on CAR T-cell therapy, placing it in the context of the global development pipeline and the progress being made.
Andrew D. Zelenetz, MD, PhD, of Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center, discusses the role of minimal residual disease evaluation in the treatment of non-Hodgkin lymphoma, techniques used to predict relapse such as immunosequencing and CAPP-Sequencing, and whether such assays could replace the use of imaging with its attendant radiation exposure.
