Dr. Stephen Robinson | EBMT 2018 | Bridging therapies & novel salvage strategies in DLBCL

L:

  • Dr Robinson explains that since one-third of DLBCL patients fail first-line therapy, the challenges faced by physicians are to improve salvage strategies
  • He described novel agents such as B-cell inhibitors, BCL2 inhibitors and disease modifying agents offer new treatment options.
  • CAR-T is an emerging therapy showing promising response rates, however, Dr Robinson cautions that longer term data would be needed to assess the efficacy of these agents.
