Does ctDNA add value to current prognostic markers for identifying high-risk patients?

This is the third episode in a series of podcasts following the 62nd American Society of Hematology (ASH) Annual Meeting and Exposition, on the topic of circulating tumor DNA (ctDNA) in the management of lymphoma. The Lymphoma hub asked Alex Herrera, City of Hope Comprehensive Cancer Center, Duarte, US, Does ctDNA add value to current prognostic markers for identifying high-risk patients?

ctDNA can be a useful tool for identifying residual disease after the initiation of treatment, and it can also be used as a prognostic factor for outcome with a particular treatment.

Does ctDNA add value to current prognostic markers for identifying high-risk patients?

In this podcast, Herrera discusses the results of a phase Ib/II study evaluating the prognostic value of ctDNA for identifying patients with relapsed/refractory diffuse large B-cell lymphoma, receiving polatuzumab + bendamustine and rituximab versus bendamustine and rituximab alone, at higher risk for disease progression.
