Childhood cancer is devastating. Every year over 15,000 children in the United States are diagnosed with cancer, with leukemia accounting for 28% of all childhood cancers in children under the age of 15. Leukemia, however, is not a single class of cancer. There are numerous forms of leukemia each with its own distinct cause.  
In this episode, Tiffany Garbutt from The Scientist’s Creative Services team spoke with Charles Mullighan, member of the department of pathology and deputy director of the Comprehensive Cancer Center at St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital, about the search for the molecular drivers underlying lineage ambiguous leukemias, a diverse subclass of leukemias with unknown origins.

Second-line CAR-T therapy in B-cell lymphoma [Video]

Peter M. Riedell, MD, University of Chicago Medicine, Chicago, IL, shares updates from the Phase III ZUMA-7 trial (NCT03391466) of the anti CD19 axicabtagene ciloleucel (axi-cel), a chimeric antigen receptor (CAR) T-cell therapy in patients with relapsed/refractory (r/r) large B-cell lymphoma (LBCL). A superior event-free survival and overall survival were reported in the axi-cel arm and the findings corroborate with data from the Phase III TRANSFORM trial (NCT03575351), demonstrating the potential of CAR T-cell therapy as a second-line option for LBCL. This interview took place at the 63rd ASH Annual Meeting and Exposition congress in Atlanta, GA.
