Interests: strategies for hematopoietic stem cell transplantation in chronic lymphoproliferative disorders; toxicity of hematopoietic stem cell transplantation; population outcomes of hematologic malignancies
During the last two decades we have witnessed a complete transformation in how we approach blood cancers. A deeper understanding of the biology of specific hematologic malignancies has exposed numerous new therapeutic targets that were quickly followed by a plethora of novel therapeutic agents. The availability of novel drugs not only continues to improve patient outcomes but also generate numerous clinical questions. How to best combine or sequence new therapeutic agents? How to balance toxicity with the need for prolonged therapy? How cancer cells escape pharmacological suppression of a presumed vital pathway? How to make therapeutic innovations affordable to most patients? How to ensure barriers for clinical trial participation are removed so patients have early access to disease modifying agents while answering the relevant clinic questions? In this Special Issue of Pharmaceuticals experts discuss recent innovations in their fields and lay out the remaining key questions for the near future.
