Management of Hodgkin Lymphoma Status Post Autologous Hematopoietic Stem Cell Transplantation

Originally presented at HOPA's 13th Annual Conference, March 2017.

Although aHSCT is the standard of care for patients with relapsed HL, only about 50% of these patients will be cured. Patients who relapse or have progressive disease after aHSCT have a very poor prognosis. This session will focus on risk factors associated with disease relapse following aHSCT and the use of brentuximab vedotin as consolidation treatment in high-risk patients. The use of novel agents such as PD-1 inhibitors in patients who relapse post aHSCT will also be discussed.

Learning Objectives

  • Identify risk factors associated with relapse after autologous hematopoietic stem cell transplant (aHSCT) in patients with Hodgkin lymphoma (HL).
  • Review the role of consolidation therapy with brentuximab vedotin status post aHSCT.
  • Describe novel treatments for patients with relapsed HL status post aHSCT.
