What you'll learn:

  • How to select eligible patients for CAR T-cell therapy
  • Clinical data that is changing treatment paradigms
  • Addressing cytokine-release syndrome and other toxicities


The recent approval of chimeric antigen receptor (CAR) T cells has given even patients with highly chemorefractory hematologic malignancies additional treatment options. While these new therapies hold the promise of benefit for an expanding number of patients, becoming familiar with new therapeutic modalities can be very challenging for busy clinicians. We would like to help you to develop familiarity and competency with CAR T cells, which may offer the chance to improve outcomes for your patients. CAR T cells differ from traditional systemic therapies with respect to patient selection, manufacture, and treatment administration. To that end, we have developed an exciting educational opportunity for you to further enhance your skills on the frontlines of cancer care.

This symposium will provide you with the opportunity to learn from an expert panel of physicians in a dynamic setting. We have created a format that features both didactic and interactive panel discussions to help illustrate the application of clinical data in real-world patient care scenarios.
