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.”

Latest Developments in Cellular Therapy for Multiple Myeloma
Oncology & Hematology Review (US). 2020;16(2):111-8 DOI: https://doi.org/10.17925/OHR.2021.16.2.111
Multiple myeloma (MM) is a malignant clonal disorder of plasma cells in the bone marrow, and more than 32,000 new cases are expected in the USA each year.1 Many clinical advances, including novel drugs and continuous therapy with treatment sequencing, have improved survival statistics.2 Despite this, MM remains largely incurable and the relapsed/refractory population remains vulnerable […]
