2021 Pediatric Grand Rounds | Bench-to-Bedside Translation of Cellular Immunotherapy for Pediatric Acute Myeloid Leukemia (AML)

Duarte, CA US
June 24, 2021

Acute Myeloid Leukemia (AML) is a devastating pediatric diagnosis and refractory or multiple relapsed patients have dismal outcomes.  Novel advancements in the field are occurring with CD33 CAR T-cells and FLT3 CAR T-cells, which are only available at select centers and does not currently include City of Hope. 

The advancements in these CARs is a novel therapeutic strategy for this diagnosis and, while we cannot open these specific trials at City of Hope as we do not have the viral vector to make these CAR T-cells, we can refer patients to these centers in the interim and obtain insight from their experiences, should we have the ability to open our own AML CAR T-cell trials in the future.

Target Audience

City of Hope Pediatric Hematology/Oncology Physicians, Advance Practice Practitioners, City of Hope staff and research teams.

Learning Objectives

  • Integrate management strategies into patient care (who and when to refer, how to care for afterwards).
  • Apply principles of management to pediatric CAR T-cell immunotherapy. 
  • Discuss this therapeutic option with patients.
