Jared E. Matya, PharmD, BCOP, on Supportive Therapies for Side Effects Related to Novel Oral Treatments
2021 Pan Pacific Lymphoma Conference
Jared E. Matya, PharmD, BCOP, of Nebraska Medicine, discusses oral agents and their toxicity profiles, as well as newer-generation agents that are often more selective and better tolerated. He describes how toxicity monitoring and management help to ensure patients with cancer remain on treatment.
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.
Sonali M. Smith, MD, of the University of Chicago, discusses the many uncertainties in preventing secondary high-grade B-cell lymphomas, which have a poor prognosis; how to discern the patients at highest risk; and whether prophylaxis with monoclonal antibodies such as rituximab can mitigate the likelihood of secondary lymphoma.
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.
Alexey V. Danilov, MD, PhD, of City of Hope, discusses the uses and side effects of cellular and immune therapies, including venetoclax and obinutuzumab, which may prove to be effective in treating highly resistant lymphoid malignancies such as chronic lymphocytic leukemia.
Steven M. Horwitz, MD, of Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center, discusses treatments for advanced mycosis fungoides and Sezary syndrome, including brentuximab vedotin and mogamulizumab, and how best to choose among treatments.
