Optimizing Outcomes Through Stem Cell Mobilization: Applying Evidence to Patients With Multiple Myeloma and Non-Hodgkin Lymphoma

Optimizing Outcomes Through Stem Cell Mobilization: Applying Evidence to Patients With Multiple Myeloma and Non-Hodgkin Lymphoma

Overview:

The treatment landscape for hematologic malignancies such as multiple myeloma and non-Hodgkin lymphoma is evolving at a rapid pace. Hematopoietic stem cell transplantation (HSCT) has remained a cornerstone approach for the management of many patients with these conditions, but questions remain concerning the timing of HSCT use and how newer frontline treatment regimens may influence transplantation decisions. Furthermore, techniques for optimal stem cell mobilization are continuing to be investigated, with the goals of minimizing the burden on the patient and maximizing the likelihood of successful stem cell collection for anticipated procedures.

This highly interactive continued medical education activity will help you address these and other challenges that you may be facing with your patients. Our panel of clinical experts in the management of hematologic malignancies will explore recent clinical data in an exciting case-based format that will help you apply the data effectively to the management of your patients who may be candidates for HSCT. Key decision points pertaining to transplantation and stem cell mobilization will be reviewed in depth.

Target Audience

This educational program is directed toward hematologists, medical oncologists, researchers/investigators who treat or are interested in the treatment of hematologic malignancies. Other allied healthcare professionals, including nurse practitioners, physician assistants, and nurses involved in the treatment and management of patients with hematologic malignancies, are also invited to participate.

Learning Objectives

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

  • Describe current strategies for mobilizing CD34-positive cells in patients with MM and NHL prior to transplantation
  • Personalize decision making to optimize outcomes for cell mobilization in the context of mitigating treatment-related toxicities
  • Evaluate recent clinical data regarding emerging strategies to improve outcomes in the mobilization of CD34-positive cells
  • Integrate recent evidence to optimize individualized approaches for autologous stem cell transplantation mobilization among patients with hematologic malignancies
