22131 CAR-T Cell Therapy Rises to the Challenge: An Expert Clinical Consult on New Evidence & Best Practice in Driving Modern Cellular Therapies as a Standard of Care for Leukemia and Lymphoma

Do you know the best practices for integrating chimeric antigen receptor (CAR)-T cell therapy into the management of patients with hematologic malignancies? Within the past few years, the indications for CAR-T therapy in leukemic and lymphoid malignancies have expanded significantly and now include acute lymphoblastic leukemia and multiple types of non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma. These advances, driven by the use of CD19-directed cell therapy constructs, have spurred numerous ongoing investigations of existing CAR-T therapies in additional CD19-expressing leukemias and lymphomas (eg, chronic lymphocytic leukemia, small lymphocytic lymphoma). Unfortunately, many hematology-oncology and bone marrow transplant BMT professionals have not adapted their practice to reflect the reality of cellular therapy in 2022—from the availability of new constructs with recent regulatory approvals to the management of practical considerations, such as referrals to specialized centers, appropriate follow-up, and toxicity management.

This video-based activity from PeerView will deliver expert guidance on the latest safety and efficacy data regarding the use of CAR-T therapy in a variety of settings. The panelists will draw on personal anecdotes and intra-institutional experiences to illustrate best practices for effectively incorporating cellular therapies into treatment plans while addressing practicalities of care, including enrollment of eligible patients in clinical trials testing the next steps with CAR-T therapy.

This activity is supported through educational grants from Novartis.

 

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 care of patients with relapsed/refractory leukemia and lymphoma.

Learning Objectives

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

  • Identify patients with leukemia or lymphoma who are eligible for and may benefit from CAR-T therapy based on current indications, clinical evidence, guideline recommendations, and clinical trial opportunities
  • Implement best practices for integrating CAR-T therapy into the care of patients with leukemia or lymphoma, including referral to specialized treatment centers, clinical trial enrollment, and provision of post-treatment follow-up care
  • Utilize appropriate AE management strategies for patients with relapsed/refractory leukemia or lymphoma who are experiencing toxicity while receiving CAR-T therapy, including cytokine release syndrome or neurotoxicity
