Complications post CAR-T Cell Therapy in Paediatric and Adult Patients

Event type:
Educational Meeting
Z. Perić, K. Kałwak, K. Kleinschmidt, I. Moiseev, A. Mussetti, I. Bremer-Ophorst, S. Van Lancker


CAR-T therapies have established themselves as the standard of care in relapsed and refractory haematologic malignancies for a variety of indications. With an increasing number of patients and approved CAR-Ts, there is a growing body of evidence on the spectrum of complications, which are distinct from complications of hematopoietic cell transplantation.

This educational course will cover both common and rare complications and ongoing changes in the practices of monitoring, prophylaxis and treatment of these complications.

The joint effort of PDWP & TCWP will cover aspects both in paediatric and adult practice.

Special dedication of the meeting will be to aspects of nursing care in CAR-T recipients.

We welcome you to Málaga, fasten your seat belts and get prepared for CAR(T) crashes!

With best wishes,

Zinaida Perić — TCWP Chair
Krzysztof Kałwak — PDWP Chair
Katharina Kleinschmidt — PDWP Secretary
Ivan Moiseev — TCWP Secretary
Alberto Mussetti — Local Organizer
Ida Bremer-Ophorst — PDWP Nurse
Sophie Van Lancker — TCWP Nurse
