Educational Needs in the Management of Relapsed/Refractory Follicular Lymphoma

Follicular lymphoma, an indolent, difficult-to-treat B-cell malignancy, is complicated by evolving disease subtypes. Patient outcomes can be hampered by the failure of the multidisciplinary team to establish consensus on the optimal timing, schedule, and length of follicular lymphoma treatment. In addition, the rapid pace of research makes it difficult to stay abreast of the latest and most clinically relevant therapies. This educational gap in the treatment and management of follicular lymphoma...

Potential Treatment for Relapsed Acute Myeloid Leukemia

Researchers have developed a new treatment that has the potential to work powerfully for some patients with relapsed acute myeloid leukemia (AML). One of the deadliest cancers, AML has a five-year survival rate of around 30%, which drops to under 10% for elderly patients. Around 30% of patients with AML have an activating mutation in the tyrosine kinase domain (TKD) of fms-like tyrosine kinase 3 (FLT3) or an FLT internal tandem duplication. These patients generally respond well initially to...

CAR T-Cell Therapy: New Treatment for Large B-Cell Lymphoma

Large B-cell lymphoma is an extremely destructive, invasive subtype of non-Hodgkin lymphoma. Often, patients with this malignancy have undergone several treatments that have not worked. New therapeutic approaches are necessary for relapsed/refractory disease. A breakthrough personalized treatment, CAR T-cell therapy may be an option for patients with relapsed/refractory large B-cell lymphoma. Patients undergo a process called leukapheresis, in which a patient's blood is collected and put through...
