Join Alicia and Lizette as they speak with Dr. Robert Chen about the treatment of mantle cell lymphoma (MCL). Dr. Chen is a hematologist/oncologist at City of Hope in Duarte, California. On this episode, Dr. Chen explains the different variables taken into consideration when choosing the proper treatment for a MCL patient. He also discusses induction chemotherapy, CAR T-cell therapy, and stem cell transplantation, explaining that although allogeneic transplant is potentially curative, it’s important to understand why it should be approached with caution.
