The abstract concludes: 
Using the CIBMTR registry, we report outcomes of relapsed DLBCL pts in a PR with residual PET/CT avid disease at time of autoHCT. While OS favored LCF pts, the adjusted 5-year PFS (41%) was comparable in both cohorts. This 5 year PFS is comparable to results reported in historical trials of auto-HCT for DLBCL. With no randomized data demonstrating superiority of CAR T-cell therapy in chemosensitive PR patients, these findings strongly support that autoHCT should remain the current standard of care for this patient population.

The abstract concludes: 
AUTO3 at > 50 x 106 CAR T cells with pembrolizumab induces CRs without severe CRS or neurotoxicities of any grade. Clinical trial information: NCT03287817.

The abstract concludes: 
These early data suggest that ALLO-501 and ALLO-647 have a manageable safety profile. ALLO-647 may be an effective and selective lymphodepleting agent with CD52 gene editing, and ALLO-501 shows evidence of clinical activity in pts with advanced NHL. Enrollment is ongoing, and updated safety, efficacy, PK/PD data will be presented including pts treated with increasing doses of ALLO-647. Clinical trial information: NCT03939026.

The abstract concludes: 
We identified ven 600 mg for 5 days per cycle as RP2D with DA-EPOCH-R. DL2B was well tolerated and required no ven dose reductions. Further efficacy and safety is being evaluated in Alliance 51701, DA-EPOCH-R/R-CHOP in DH/double expressor lymphomas, using the dosing regimen defined by this study. Clinical trial information: NCT03036904.

The abstract concludes: 
VR-EPOCH is active for RS. Expected toxicities from intensive chemoimmunotherapy and ven were seen, but daily ven ramp-up was feasible. The 48% CR rate and median PFS of 16.3 mo are favorable in the context of historical results. Clinical trial information: NCT03054896.

The abstract concludes: 
In pts with R/R cHL, pembro was superior to BV and demonstrated statistically significant and clinically meaningful improvement in PFS across all subgroups, with safety consistent with previous reports. Pembro monotherapy should be standard of care for this pt population with R/R/cHL. Clinical trial information: NCT02684292.

The abstract concludes: 
BOVen is well tolerated and achieves rapid uMRD: currently 68% PB uMRD and 51% BM uMRD with limited follow up (to be updated on presentation). Ten (27%) have discontinued treatment thus far. The value of MRD directed treatment duration will be evaluated with continued follow up. Clinical trial information: NCT03824483.

The abstract concludes: 
ASPEN is the largest phase 3 trial of BTK inhibitors in WM and the first head-to-head comparison of BTK inhibitors in any disease. Although not statistically significant, ZANU was associated with a higher CR+VGPR response rate, and demonstrated clinically meaningful advantages in safety and tolerability compared to IBR. Clinical trial information: NCT03053440.

The abstract concludes: 
Axi-cel demonstrated significant and durable clinical benefit, with high rates of ORR and CR, and a manageable safety profile in pts with R/R iNHL. Clinical trial information: NCT03105336.
