Sunny Day in Orlando, FL

Orlando, FL was the place to be last week thanks to two specialist meetings in town: BMT Tandem 2017 #BMTTandem17 (joint meeting of ASBMT and CIBMTR), and the inaugural ASCO-SITC Clinical Immuno-Oncology Symposium #Immunosym.  Indeed, several speakers spoke at both events!

Throughout this week we’ll be writing about the insights we gained from the two meetings into the latest data and trends in immunotherapy, immuno-oncology and adoptive cell therapy.

We’re kicking off with cell therapy insights from the BMT Tandem Meeting. It’s the joint meeting of the American Society for Blood and Marrow Transplantation and Center for International Blood & Marrow Transplant Research. If you don’t already, do follow the ASBMT President for 2017-2018 Dr Krishna Komanduri, @drkomanduri. He’s actively involved in CAR T cell therapy trials in Miami.

It’s worth remembering that bone marrow transplanters led the way in the use of immunotherapy to provide cures for cancer. Today, the BMT transplant community are pioneering adoptive cell therapy, and in particular  CAR T cell therapy in multiple hematologic malignancies including ALL, NHL, CLL and Multiple Myeloma. This makes the annual BMT Tandem meeting one to watch for some of the latest cell therapy data.
