Bispecific antibodies have emerged as potent new therapy for resistant aggressive lymphomas. Integration of this new class of immunotherapy agents into the DLBCL algorithm represents new opportunities and new challenges, including timing relative to other treatments in the relapsed setting, and the management of cytokine release syndrome and prevention and management of infections. Opportunities for bringing these agents into the front-line, high-risk setting will be described.
Speaker: Dr. Michael Crump
Professor of Medicine at the University of Toronto and attending physician in the Division of Medical Oncology and Hematology at the Princess Margaret Hospital, University Health Network
1) Indications for bispecifics in DLBCL
