2020 Surgery Grand Rounds | CAR T Malignant Brain Tumors: Progress, Promises and Challenges
Glioblastomas (GBM) are a challenging malignancy with few good treatment options. Current treatment involves surgery, radiation, and chemotherapy. The prognosis remains poor despite multimodality therapy and the field is actively exploring additional options in its treatment.
The management of this disease is highly specialized and the pursuit of investigational therapies is essential for the advancement in the treatment of this disease as it otherwise has poor prognosis. Few physicians have expertise in this field and the dissemination of this knowledge is important. Furthermore, the experiences of investigational therapies in this disease process have the possibility to be translated into other disease processes.
Surgeons, medical oncologists, physicians, nurses, and all other health care professionals interested in this subject matter.
- Discuss the rationale for using CAR T cell immunotherapy for treatment of malignant gliomas.
- Identify side effects of CAR T cell therapy for glioblastoma (GBM).
- Outline potential barriers for effective CAR T cell therapy for GBM.
- Distinguish CAR T cell delivery methods into the central nervous system (CNS).
