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.
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.

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.
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.
