Increased diversity in clinical trials remains an unmet need, and in the new SEQUOIA trial, the majority of patients being White males meant researchers could not do a subgroup analysis looking at outcomes for specific races, age groups or genders, said Mazyar Shadman, MD, MPH, of Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center.

Elli Papaemmanuil, PhD, assistant professor in computational oncology, Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center, spoke on current methods of classification and stratification for myelodysplastic syndromes (MDS) and the applicability of a novel scoring system, presented during her plenary session at EHA2022, that aims to improve and refine MDS risk estimation.
John Mascarenhas, MD, director of the Adult Leukemia Program at The Tisch Cancer Institute at Mount Sinai, spoke on preliminary data findings of the phase 2 MANIFEST study investigating the efficacy and safety profile of pelabresib, ruxolitinib combination therapy in JAK inhibitor-naive patients with myelofibrosis and those with suboptimal response to ruxolitinib monotherapy.
A primary analysis of the phase 2 ROSEWOOD trial finds that a combination of zanubrutinib and obinutuzumab is superior to obinutuzumab alone in relapsed/refractory follicular lymphoma (FL). Results were presented at the 2022 European Hematology Association Congress.
The late-breaking oral session at the 2022 European Hematology Association (EHA) Congress allowed investigators to present recently emerging data from abstracts submitted after the deadline, including outcomes from trials in chronic lymphocytic leukemia, multiple myeloma, and sickle cell disease.

Mandy Lauw, MD, PhD, physician scientist and chair of the YoungEHA committee, discussed the content presented at the YoungEHA Research Meeting at the 2022 European Hematology Association (EHA) Congress and core themes of the session she cochaired on the ethics of artificial intelligence (AI) and science in hematology.
Swaminathan P. Iyer, MD, of the University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center, explains the mechanism of action and efficacy/safety observed in phase 1 results of CTX130, a CD70-targeted allogeneic chimeric antigen receptor (CAR) T-cell therapy, in the treatment of relapsed/refractory T-cell lymphoma.
During a session at the 2022 European Hematology Association Congress, speakers discussed how artificial intelligence (AI) can help advance the principles of ethical medicine—but also how new technologies are being used to undermine the integrity of scientific research.
Abstracts presented at the 2022 European Hematology Association Congress demonstrate superior health-related quality of life (HRQOL) outcomes among patients with chronic lymphocytic leukemia (CLL) and small lymphocytic leukemia (SLL) taking zanubrutinib.
