Tasian, MD, University of Pennsylvania School of Medicine and Abramson Cancer Center, Philadelphia, PA, outlines the use of blinatumomab and inotuzumab for the treatment of children with relapsed or refractory (R/R) B-cell acute lymphoblastic leukemia (B-ALL). The study reported that both blinatumomab and inotuzumab can induce deep remissions in patients with R/R B-ALL and that blinatumomab can be used as an effective bridging therapy during infection.
