Prof Rupert Handgretinger, Director and Chair, Children’s University Hospital and Department of Haematology/Oncology, Tübingen, Germany

Prof Rupert Handgretinger talks to ecancer at the European School of Haematology (ESH) meeting: International Conference on Acute Lymphoblastic Leukaemia about the various novel therapies that are being developed to treat acute lymphoblastic leukaemia (ALL).

He describes the use of allogeneic haploidentical stem cell transplantation as an immunotherapy to treat children with acute lymphoblastic leukaemia (ALL).

Given the positive initial outcomes achieved, Prof Handgretinger mentions that the next step will be to carry out a prospective, multi-centre clinical trial in patients with advanced leukaemia.

He also mentions the use of memory natural killer (NK) cells and CAR T cells as a post-transplant adoptive T cell therapy.
