2021 Pediatric Grand Rounds | Hematopoietic Stem Cell Transplantation (HSCT) for Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia (ALL): Update on Indications and Outcome

Duarte, CA US
July 8, 2021

CAR T-cells have altered the landscape of pediatric acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL) management.  As this therapy is becoming more widespread, the intersecting roles of CAR T-cells and hematopoietic stem cell transplantation (HSCT) are evolving and frequent reevaluations of the indication and outcomes of pediatric ALL patients to both therapies are warranted.  In July 2020, the American Society for Transplantation and Cellular Therapy (ASTCT) published updated guidelines to help providers navigate these decisions. The purpose of this lecture is to update pediatric oncologists on advances in hematopoietic stem cell transplantation (HSCT) by a leading expert in the field. 
 

Target Audience

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

Learning Objectives

  • Identify indications for hematopoietic stem cell transplantation (HSCT) and for CAR T-cells based on the current literature.

  • Identify current outcomes for pediatric acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL) patients who undergo HSCT.
  • Outline the various types of cultural diversities (gender, age, race, religion, culture, etc.) that relate to demographics, diagnosis and treatment.
