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 latest data surrounding the use of blinatumomab followed transplantation in paediatric acute lymphoblastic leukaemia (ALL) patients.

In one study, he states that two cycles of blinatumomab successfully translated into a better MRD clearance, disease-free and overall survival - allowing patients to receive an allograft.

Prof Locatelli also mentions some unpublished data, which clearly shows that a TBI containing regimen is able to offer a better probability of leukaemia-free survival in patients with B-cell precursor ALL receiving an allograft.
