Supporting Our Colleagues: Easing the Burden of Referrals for CAR-T in Aggressive B-cell Lymphomas
CAR T-cell therapy is a major advance in the treatment of individuals with non-Hodgkin lymphoma, especially for adult patients with relapsed or refractory large B-cell lymphoma. Several CAR-T therapies are now approved for second-line treatment, and data regarding their efficacy, safety, and real-world outcomes continue to emerge. Collaboration among hematologic oncology clinicians is needed to ensure that appropriate patients are referred for evaluation for CAR-T therapy earlier in their treatment journey, potentially offering them a better chance for lasting remission or even a cure.
During Supporting Our Colleagues: Easing the Burden of Referrals for CAR-T in Aggressive B-cell Lymphomas, expert cell therapists and a community oncologist, along with several special guests, will highlight the clinical implications of the most recent data on CAR-T therapy, explore referring clinicians’ misperceptions about access to and logistics associated with therapy, and provide practical tips to help cell therapists collaborate more effectively with referring colleagues to optimize shared care.
