Medical Crossfire®: Exploring the Modern Management of Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia from AYA to Adult

Medical Crossfire®: Exploring the Modern Management of Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia from AYA to Adult


Friday, December 4, 2020

Live, Interactive Virtual Webcast!

11:00 AM – 2:00 PM PST

Overview

Numerous advances have been made in the diagnosis and management of adolescent and young adult (AYA) and adult patients with acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL). These include an improved understanding of ALL pathology, including cytogenetic and molecular abnormalities, and the development and incorporation of novel targeted and immune strategies into the field in recent years. Additionally, assessment of measurable/minimal residual disease (MRD) plays an increasing role in prognosis and treatment, and new MRD tests with increasing sensitivity are becoming available.

To help hematologists/oncologists provide the best possible outcomes for their AYA and adult patients with ALL, this Medical Crossfire® will provide an open exchange of ideas and viewpoints. The program features a case-based agenda allowing participants to consider how they might handle particular cases, integrate relevant evidence into real-world practice, and compare their patient care approaches with those of experts and peers. This program will also address approaches to maximize the tolerability of current and emerging therapeutic approaches.

Benefits of Attending

  • Gain insights into key molecular characterizations influencing treatment choices in ALL
  • Learn the most recent data on promising treatment options for ALL
  • Hear leading experts apply evidence-based treatments to challenging real-world patient scenarios
  • Interact with international experts in ALL

Target Audience

This educational activity is intended for hematologists, medical oncologists, and other healthcare professionals interested in the latest advances in the treatment of patients with acute lymphoblastic leukemia. Fellows, researchers, nurses, nurse practitioners, physician assistants, and other healthcare professionals interested in the treatment of patients with ALL are also invited to participate.

Learning Objectives

Upon completion of this activity, participants will be able to:

  • Utilize risk stratification strategies to develop appropriate treatment plans for adult as well as pediatric patients with ALL based on cytogenetic and immunophenotype characteristics
  • Assess the importance of minimal residual disease and its role in determining prognosis as well as in treatment planning in adult as well as AYA patients with ALL
  • Review the safety and efficacy of emerging therapies in the management of ALL, including monoclonal antibodies, antibody-drug conjugates, and CAR T-cell therapies
  • Identify ALL patients who may benefit from clinical trial participation evaluating emerging ALL therapies and/or strategies
