Dr Corinne Summers - Seattle Children's Hospital, Seattle, USA

Dr Corinne Summers speaks to ecancer at ASH 2018 about the potential role stem cell transplantation plays in long-term outcomes after CD19 CAR T-cell therapy for paediatric patients.

She explains that the follow-up reveals late relapse recurrences and that patients with ALL who received a first stem cell transplant after therapy were less likely to experience a relapse, but the role of second transplant is still unclear.

Dr Summers concludes that more follow-up is needed in phase II, which is now underway.
