Antibodies and chimeric antigen receptor-engineered T cells (CAR-T) are increasingly used for cancer immunotherapy. Small molecule inhibitors targeting cellular oncoproteins and enzymes such as BCR-ABL, JAK2, Bruton tyrosine kinase, FLT3, BCL-2, IDH1, IDH2, are biomarker-driven chemotherapy-free agents approved for several major hematological malignancies. LOXO-305, asciminib, “off-the-shelf” universal CAR-T cells and BCMA-directed immunotherapeutics as well as data from clinical trials on many novel agents and regimens were updated at the 2020 American Society of Hematology (ASH) Annual Meeting. Major developments and updates for the therapy of hematological malignancies were delineated at the recent Winter Symposium and New York Oncology Forum from the Chinese American Hematologist and Oncologist Network (CAHON.org). This study summarized the latest updates on novel agents and regimens for hematological malignancies from the 2020 ASH annual meeting.
