Sarah Cannon Leaders to Present at the 2021 TCT Meetings of ASTCT® and CIBMTR®


 

The Sarah Cannon Transplant and Cellular Therapy Network, formerly the Sarah Cannon Blood Cancer Network, announced 19 abstracts and presentations have been accepted for presentation at the 2021 TCT | Transplantation & Cellular Therapy Meetings of ASTCT and CIBMTR, held virtually from February 8-12, 2021. The meetings bring together thousands of healthcare professionals for a full scientific program that address the most timely issues in hematopoietic cell transplantation (HCT) and cellular therapy.

"We look forward to discussing the important developments in our rapidly evolving field at this year's TCT meetings," says Fred LeMaistre, MD, Physician-in-Chief of Blood Cancers, Sarah Cannon. "Sarah Cannon experts will share presentations focused on immune effector cell therapy and the efficacy and treatment standards of HCT for both adult and pediatric patients. Together, the advances we are making across the network will ultimately better serve our patients."

The Sarah Cannon Blood Cancer Network has evolved, as have the therapies it offers, to become the Sarah Cannon Transplant and Cellular Therapy Network in 2021. This transition reflects the latest advancements in the field and the broader options now available to patients. In 2020, the Sarah Cannon Transplant and Cellular Therapy Network performed ~1,200 hematopoietic cell transplants and treated more than 100 patients with various cellular therapies, including both FDA-approved and research options, across eight Foundation For The Accreditation of Cellular Therapy (FACT)/Joint Accreditation Committee ISCT-Europe & EBMT (JACIE) accredited sites.
