Maloney, MD, PhD, of Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center and winner of this year’s Oliver Press Memorial Award, discuss three CAR T-cell products for lymphoma treatment, comparing their efficacy, toxicity, ease of use, and the clinical resources needed.
Peggy Burhenn, MS, RN-BC, AOCNS, of the City of Hope National Medical Center, discusses the challenges of working with older lymphoma patients and the importance of effective geriatric assessments.
Susan Blumel, RN, BSN, of the University of Nebraska Medical Center, and Laura J. Zitella, MS, RN, ACNP-BC, AOCN, of Stanford Health Center, discuss immunotherapy, CAR T-cell toxicities, and the principles of team management.
Sagar Lonial, MD, of the Emory University School of Medicine, discusses the importance of planning for relapse based on the treatment a patient has received, new targets for refractory myeloma, and the role of cellular therapy.
Kieron M. Dunleavy, MD, of George Washington University, discusses the need for drug combinations to improve lymphoma therapy, despite unexpected toxicities, as our understanding of the molecular biology grows.
Julie M. Vose, MD, MBA, of the University of Nebraska Medical Center, discusses promising pathways for inhibitors—BTK, PI3K, EZH2, bcl-2—and the clinical trials for single agents and combinations that suggest their potential for lymphoma treatment.
