WEBCAST Treatment Innovation in Hodgkin Lymphoma

Integrating New Therapeutic Options with Autologous Transplant Across Clinical Settings

In this activity, experts in the management of Hodgkin lymphoma (HL) discuss progress in integrating novel therapies into treatment protocols that include autologous stem cell transplantation (ASCT) as part of an overall management approach to HL; the experts discuss new evidence on antibody–drug conjugates and immunotherapies as both pre- and post-transplant regimens, as well as practical issues related to the safe and effective use of newer agents in transplant-eligible populations, including the combination of antibody and immune treatments in the HL setting.

Target Audience

This activity has been designed to meet the educational needs of hematologist-oncologists, oncologists, BMT specialists, BMT nurse specialists, and other clinicians involved in the management of Hodgkin lymphoma.

Learning Objectives

Upon completion of this activity, participants should be better able to:

  1. Summarize transplant eligibility criteria and evidence on the role of novel therapeutics in conjunction with ASCT in the HL setting
  2. Cite updated evidence on the use of novel therapy for HL as induction therapy, post-transplant consolidation, or as post-ASCT options in relapsed disease
  3. Integrate novel therapeutics into pre- and post-transplant regimens for patients with HL who are eligible for ASCT
