Chimeric antigen receptor T-cell (CAR T) therapy, a validated novel therapeutic strategy in leukemic and lymphoid malignancies, continues to provide new hope for many patients, including those with multiple myeloma, with limited treatment options. Multiple new indications for CAR T-cell therapies have been approved by the FDA already this year, and new research may expand treatment options for patients with heavily pretreated disease or those receiving earlier lines of treatment. With these new therapeutic opportunities, questions arise regarding best practices for using CAR T-cell therapy in the clinic. Check out PeerView’s “Seminars and Tumor Board” program featuring the latest research and expert guidance on the role of CAR T-cell therapy in modern hematologic cancer care. Gain a thorough understanding of the latest efficacy and safety data on these therapies, and learn how to manage the practical aspects of implementing these therapies in the care of patients with hematologic malignancies. With patient cases drawn from practice, our faculty will guide participants through important clinical considerations, including referral of patients to specialized centers, coordination of care, and detecting and managing distinctive CAR T-cell therapy–related adverse events such as cytokine release syndrome (CRS) and immune effector cell neurotoxicity syndrome (ICANS). Don’t miss this opportunity to learn more about the timely, safe, and efficacious use of CAR T-cell therapy. Upon completion of this activity, participants should be better able to: Describe the biologic rationale, mechanisms of action, key efficacy/safety evidence, and expanding clinical roles of current and emerging CAR T-cell therapies for patients with hematologic malignancies; Develop strategies to optimize the delivery of CAR T-cell therapy among patients with hematologic malignancies, including considerations for appropriate patient selection, referral to and care coordination with specialized centers, clinical trial enrollment, and pre-/post-treatment care and support; Employ proactive strategies and best practices to monitor for and manage key toxicities associated with CAR T-cell therapy in patients with hematologic malignancies, including cytokine release syndrome and neurotoxicity.
