Dr. Anna Sureda | EBMT 2018 | Summary of the transplant algorithm in Hodgkin lymphoma

L:

  • Dr Sureda gives a summary of the transplant algorithm in lymphoma highlighting that autologous stem cell transplant (ASCT) is still a standard of care in relapsed / refractory Hodgkin lymphoma.
  • She explains that the results of ASCT have been improved by PET-adapted strategies. New drugs such as brentuximab vedotin and checkpoint inhibitors can improve disease status before transplant.
  • Finally, she notes that allogeneic transplant is an option for those who relapse after ASCT but this will become less frequent as new drugs are more successful.
