Sonali M. Smith, MD: Can CNS Prophylaxis Prevent Secondary High-Grade B-Cell Lymphomas?
2021 Pan Pacific Lymphoma Conference
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.
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.
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.
Nina Shah, MD, of the University of California, San Francisco, discusses triplet drug combinations that are the current standard of care for transplant-eligible and -ineligible patients with multiple myeloma, as well as quadruplet therapies that demonstrate depth of response in newly diagnosed cases, where they may become the standard of care along with transplantation and maintenance treatments.
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.
Jonathan W. Friedberg, MD, of the University of Rochester Medical Center, discusses treatment options for follicular lymphoma, focusing on the combination of lenalidomide and rituximab and why he uses that regimen for first relapse but not front-line therapy.
