Prof Franco Locatelli - Ospedale Pediatrico Bambino Gesù, Rome, Italy

Prof Franco Locatelli speaks to ecancer at the 2020 ALL Assembly meeting in Frankfurt about the role of immunotherapy in B-cell precursor acute lymphoblastic leukaemia (ALL).

He mentions a frontline, randomised trial which compares the addition of blinatumomab or two courses of consolidation therapy in high-risk patients, to examine whether immunotherapy can reduce toxicity and improve patient outcomes.

Prof Locatelli also describes future trials in this area, including one study that will further examine the role of blinatumomab and CART-T cells in relapsed/refractory patients.

In the future, Prof Locatelli believes that immunotherapy will be more commonly used instead of chemotherapy, due to its reduced toxicity.
