Latest Research: CAR-T Cell Therapy for Lymphoma
We are thrilled to welcome Dr. Sairah Ahmed as our next featured speaker on Share the Science. We have had many requests from the Save the Cord community to highlight the latest research in CAR-T cell therapy and as it relates to cord blood. Indeed, this is a new and emerging area of scientific research with great promise. Given that we welcome not only healthcare professionals to our webinars but also the general public, we feel it is important to give you a brief overview of the basics regarding CAR-T cell therapy.
In this special webinar focused on CAR-T Cell Therapy, Dr. Ahmed will discuss how cord blood sources play a critical role in treating select lymphomas including the potential of using CAR-T cell therapy. This method of treatment shows particular promise in treating lymphomas that are not responding to other methods. During Dr. Ahmed's presentation she will highlight which patients are the best candidates for treatment with CAR-T therapy and how is CAR-T therapy different from autologous transplant for lymphoma. She will also discuss which types of lymphoma can be treated with CAR-T therapy. The toxicity specific to CAR-T therapy, as well as novel lymphoma cellular therapy treatment from cord blood sources will also be discussed.
