What should supportive care look like for patients with GvHD? What role does physical activity play in these patients?
Savani begins by highlighting the importance of supportive care for patients with GvHD. Perić then discusses how, if local therapy is effective enough, systemic treatment can be avoided, and how there should always be an aim to use the least immunosuppression possible. Savani goes on to talk about pain and fatigue management in these patients and how physical therapy could play a role. Finally, both Perić and Savani emphasize that supportive care should be a priority, and more data on the use of physical exercise and therapy is key to improving the quality of life for patients with GvHD.
