Treatments options for various histologies of leukemia are expanding with FDA approvals for drugs such as the combination of ivosidenib/azacitidine and the CAR T-cell therapy brexucabtagene autoleucel.
The FDA has scheduled 3 sessions for the Oncologic Drugs Advisory Committee to review updates on the new drug application for poziotinib tablets and data for the continued approval of indications for melphalan flufenamide and duvelisib.
Sherry Adkins, MSN, ANP-C, discusses the significance of incorporating CAR T-cell therapy regimens, such as lisocabtagene autoleucel, into earlier lines of treatment for patients with relapsed/refractory large B-cell lymphoma.
Gretchen McNally, PhD, ANP-BC, AOCNP, discusses the rationale behind a pilot study which will assess patient reported outcomes for patients with lymphoma who develop chemotherapy-induced peripheral lymphoma.
Phase 3 findings from the POLARIX trial showed that the addition of platuzumab vedotin to rituximab, cyclophosphamide, doxorubicin, and prednisone resulted in a 27% reduction in risk of disease progression, relapse, or death for patients with newly diagnosed diffuse large B-cell lymphoma.
A quality time without symptoms of toxicities analysis of the pivotal ZUMA-7 trial found that patients with relapsed or refractory large B-cell lymphoma experienced longer time without toxicity with axicabtagene ciloleucel than with standard of care.
Mosunetuzumab, a CD20 and CD3 T-cell engaging bispecific antibody, received a priority review designation from the FDA for the treatment of patients with relapsed/refractory follicular lymphoma following at least 2 prior systemic therapies.
