ASH: New Therapies for Better Patient Outcomes in Acute Myeloid Leukemia: Integration of Recent Data Sets Into Clinical Practice

Keeping up with the unprecedented development of new therapies for patients with acute myeloid leukemia (AML) has become particularly challenging for busy clinicians. The past 2 years have seen nearly a dozen new agents approved or in review by regulatory authorities, including inhibitors of FLT3, isocitrate dehydrogenase (IDH), and BCL-2, as well as hypomethylating agents, anti-CD33 agents, and novel cytotoxic formulations. Moreover, use of these new therapies is increasingly being tied to molecular markers. These developments have changed the paradigm of care for patients with AML.
To help you better navigate the changing therapeutic landscape, we are pleased to present New Therapies for Better Patient Outcomes in Acute Myeloid Leukemia: Integration of Recent Data Sets Into Clinical Practice, a cutting-edge program designed to help you apply with confidence the latest therapeutic developments for your patients with AML.
If you are able to take part in this exciting event, we hope to augment your foundation of knowledge and clinical competence in several areas, including:
- Recent data on next-generation FLT3 inhibitors in newly diagnosed patients with relapsed/refractory AML
- Expanding applications for IDH inhibition, including both IDH1 and IDH2
- New approaches for patients with AML who are not candidates for intensive therapy
- Managing therapy-related adverse events
This educational activity is directed toward medical oncologists/hematologists, nurse practitioners, nurses, and fellows who treat and manage patients with AML. Physician assistants, pharmacists, researchers, and other healthcare professionals interested in the treatment of AML are also invited to participate.
Upon completion of this activity, participants should be able to:
- Identify prognostic factors for risk stratification in patients with AML, methods to apply testing strategies and their findings, and monitoring strategies for patients managed for these tumors
- Detail results from recent clinical trials that have evaluated emerging treatment strategies for patients with AML
- Apply emerging data sets in the context of evolving treatment paradigms in the management of AML
- Apply evidence-based strategies for proactive management of treatment-related toxicities that occur in the real-world management of patients with AML
