  • Overview

    A recent study sought to determine whether CNS treatment or prophylaxis combined with systemic tagraxofusp therapy for blastic plasmacytoid dendritic cell neoplasm (BPDCN) impacts patient prognosis and the efficacy of tagraxofusp. According to the results presented as a poster at the 2022 European Hematology Association Annual Congress, treatment with tagraxofusp and intrathecal chemotherapy was associated with promising efficacy in patients with CNS disease, with no unexpected safety events. Joining Dr. Charles Turck to share the key findings and how they may impact the way we approach treating patients with BPDCN is Dr. Justin Taylor, Assistant Professor of Hematology at the Sylvester Comprehensive Cancer Center of the University of Miami Miller School of Medicine.
