Expiration Date

In this Build Your Own Case Study | Enhancing Patient Care for CAR T-Cell Therapy in NHL: Comprehensive Solutions for Your Community, learn from expert faculty about the most recent clinical updates and emerging real-world efficacy and safety data of CAR T-cell therapies in NHL. Build Your Own Case Study will guide participants through an interactive learning progression, as they go through two patient scenarios and make selections at critical decision points. Participants will be provided with patient clinical presentation and other relevant factors including age, time and aggressiveness of relapse, social history, genetic profiling/molecular testing results, cytogenetic risk factors, disease subtype, comorbidities, and prior therapies in order to make appropriate treatment decisions. Expert faculty will discuss participant selection of treatments, sequencing considerations, and drug-related toxicities. The activity will conclude with a discussion on how to develop strategies to assist patients with coordinated care and long-term disease management after the receipt of CAR T-cell therapy.

This ancillary educational activity is derived from the 2024 ASCO Annual Meeting, originally held on May 31, 2024
