An Introduction to Haematological Malignancies
In recent years, advances in our understanding of the pathological mechanisms underlying haematological malignancies have led to improved outcomes. Several novel drug classes are now emerging, including chimeric antigen receptor (CAR) T-cell therapy, molecular targeted therapies, bispecific T-cell engaging antibodies, CD47 blockade therapy and antibody-drug conjugates. Many challenges remain, however, including how best to combine agents and determining where new therapies fit into the treatment paradigm.
Expert video highlights, insights from the conference hub and comprehensive peer-reviewed articles from our journal portfolio provide updates on the changing treatment landscape. To learn more about how the latest developments impact on patient outcomes view our expert-led learning activities.”

Melflufen—A Novel Agent in the Treatment of Relapsed/Refractory Multiple Myeloma
Oncology & Hematology Review (US). 2020; 16(1):12–4 DOI: https://doi.org/10.17925/OHR.2020.16.1.12
Multiple myeloma (MM) is the second most common hematological malignancy after non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma.1 Although recent decades have seen considerable advances and improvements in clinical outcomes for patients with MM,2 MM remains incurable, with a high disease burden.3 Clonal evolution and genomic instability within myeloma clones inevitably lead to disease progression and treatment resistance.4 An increasing number […]
