I. Evaluate the effects of a GA-informed multi-disciplinary intervention in attenuating physical function decline among older patients receiving CAR-T therapy at day +30 post-CAR-T infusion.
I. Determine success in coordinating trimodality optimization before lymphodepletion.
II. Compare rates of geriatric syndromes of frailty, cognitive impairment and malnourishment in SOC and GA-intervention cohorts at 30 days post-CAR-T infusion.
III. Evaluate rates and duration of CAR-T related neurotoxicity in SOC and GA-intervention groups.
I. Quantify trimodality optimization intensity throughout treatment course. II. Compare longitudinal trajectory of Short Physical Performance Battery (SPPB), frailty, cognitive impairment and malnourishment between the two arms, at day +100 post-CAR-T infusion.
III. Evaluate quality of life trajectories using the Patient Reported Outcomes Measurement Information System (PROMIS) Global Health Scale at baseline and days +30 and +100 in both cohorts.
IV. Incidence of intensive care unit (ICU) admissions by day 100. V. Overall survival, response rate and progression-free survival through one year.
OUTLINE: Patients are randomized to 1 of 2 arms.
ARM I: Patients undergo GA before lymphodepleting chemotherapy and recommendations based on assessment results communicated to treating physicians. Patients receive physical therapy (PT) and delirium prevention education prior to lymphodepletion, at least once before CAR-T therapy, at least 2 times a week while inpatient, and at least once every other week outpatient up to day 30. Additionally, patients receive personalized nutritional guidance from a registered dietician prior to lymphodepletion, prior to CAR-T therapy and at least once a week up to day 30.
ARM II: Patients undergo GA and receive standard of care throughout study.
After completion of study treatment, patients are followed up at day 100 and then up to 1 year.
