Medical Crossfire®: Leveraging T-Cell Engaging Immunotherapy for the Treatment of Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia
Acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL) is a heterogeneous hematologic malignancy, and the American Cancer Society estimates 6150 new diagnoses and 1520 deaths will occur in 2020. Progress is being made in terms of increased understanding of disease pathophysiology as related to identification of new cytogenetic and molecular abnormalities, as well as development of novel targeted agents for the treatment of ALL. The addition of tyrosine kinase inhibitors (TKIs), monoclonal antibodies, novel immune therapies, and chimeric antigen receptor (CAR) T cells to the treatment landscape has resulted in improved clinical outcomes. These new developments have shifted clinical management from a “one-size-fits-all” approach to a more individualized treatment approach based on immunophenotypic, cytogenetic, and molecular features.
This Medical Crossfire® will provide an ideal format for the ALL care team, inclusive of hematology-oncologists, to participate in an open exchange of ideas and viewpoints fostered by a case-based agenda allowing in-depth review of patient scenarios integrated with relevant evidence into real-world practice. Expert faculty will discuss methods to best integrate the latest therapies into the ALL treatment paradigms, address barriers to optimized integration of these novel agents, and provide best practices for the management of adverse events.
Benefits of Attending
- Hear how the experts and your peers are treating their patients with ALL, using examples from challenging, real-world cases
- Determine optimal treatment algorithms for specific patient groups across ALL
- Improve your knowledge about how emerging and cutting-edge treatments may be incorporated into your clinical practice
- Fine-tune your clinical skills for preventing and/or minimizing treatment-related adverse events for your patients with ALL
This educational activity is directed toward hematologists, medical oncologists, and other health care professionals interested in the latest advances in the treatment of patients with ALL.
Learning ObjectivesUpon completion of this activity, participants will be able to:
- Describe the biology of ALL in terms of biomarkers, testing strategies, and methods to stratify risk for patients with this hematologic malignancy
- Outline the role of T-cell–engaging immunotherapy in measurable residual disease status in treatment decisions for patients with ALL
- Incorporate key findings from recent clinical trials concerning the use of T-cell–engaging immunotherapy treatment strategies for patients with ALL in the frontline and relapsed/refractory settings into practice
