Robert Knobler, MD of the Medical University of Vienna, Vienna, Austria talks about extracorporeal photopheresis in the treatment of cutaneous T-cell lymphoma (the particular varient being Sézary syndrome) at the 2016 World Congress on Cancers of the Skin (WCCS) and the Congress of the European Association of Dermato-Oncology (EADO) in Vienna, Austria. Extracorporeal photopheresis was invented in 1983 and became well known worldwide in 1987 when the first study was published in the New England Journal of Medicine. Prof. Knobler's role was to review the literature and the progress that has been done in the past 30 years in the use of this therapy. The literature of over 37 published papers (review articles and retrospective studies) have been reviewed and it has been found that the efficacy of this therapy, which was shown to be significant in inducing complete remission (CR) in refactory patients as well as patients who were responding to other therapies but not optimally, has been reproduced in over 1200 patients that were treated with this technology. The complete remission (CR) rates

Dr. Ajay Gopal discusses his optimism at the state of the treatment for Hodgkin Lymphoma, a disease that primarily affects young adults. For the newly diagnosed, he assures us that the standard therapies for the disease have been incredibly successful and most patients will be cured with the first treatment regimen. For those that are not, Dr. Gopal covers the range of options including autologous transplant and the expanding use of allogeneic transplant, made possible by the newly approved brentuximab vedotin (Adcetris).
At ASH 2015, Dr. Charles Herbaux discusses his abstract titled "Nivolumab Is Effective and Reasonably Safe in Relapsed or Refractory Hodgkin's Lymphoma after Allogeneic Hematopoietic Cell Transplantation: A Study from the Lysa and SFGM-TC."
