18176 Realizing the Promise of CAR-T Cell Therapy for Leukemia and Lymphoma: Implications for Long-Term Care in the Era of Stem Cell Transplantation

In this activity, experts in the management of hematologic malignancies discuss the science behind adoptive immunotherapy with chimeric antigen receptor (CAR)-T cell therapy and exciting new developments with this innovative treatment approach for patients with leukemia and B-cell lymphoma, including the latest efficacy and safety data, recent indications for use of different CAR-T cell constructs, and role in the context of HCT. They also provide insight on practical considerations for appropriate integration of CAR-T cell therapies into treatment plans, identifying patients most likely to benefit from these agents, and strategies for managing unique CAR-T cell–related toxicities.

Target Audience

This activity has been designed to meet the educational needs of hematologist-oncologists, oncologists, BMT specialists and BMT nurse specialists, and other clinicians involved in the care of patients undergoing HCT.

Learning Objectives

  1. Discuss the anticancer mechanisms and the latest evidence on efficacy and safety of adoptive immunotherapy with chimeric antigen receptor (CAR) T cells in various lymphoma and leukemia settings
  2. Identify the clinical role of and patients that might benefit from CAR T cell therapy in conjunction with current treatment paradigms including HCT for leukemia and lymphoma
  3. Describe strategies for managing the unique safety issues associated with the use of CAR T cell therapy
