Stem Cell Mobilization 101: Maximizing Outcomes in Patients with Multiple Myeloma and Non-Hodgkin Lymphoma

Stem Cell Mobilization 101: Maximizing Outcomes in Patients with Multiple Myeloma and Non-Hodgkin Lymphoma


Wednesday, February 19, 2020

Scientific Session: 12:30 PM – 1:30 PM in Palms: Royal, in the Main Convention Center

Location:
Orlando World Center Marriott
8701 World Center Drive
Orlando, FL 32821

Overview

Autologous stem cell transplantation (ASCT) plays a key role in the treatment of hematologic malignancies, especially multiple myeloma and lymphoma. Mobilizing stem cells from the bone marrow for peripheral blood collection is an important procedure that circumvents the need for bone marrow harvest, which comes with additional complications. However, conventional stem cell mobilization techniques fail to mobilize an adequate number of stem cells for transplantation in up to 40% of patients. In this symposium, expert faculty will review the latest advances in improving stem cell mobilization outcomes. Strategies, techniques, and therapeutic options to optimize mobilization will be discussed and placed in the context of clinical scenarios to enhance your understanding of how new data should be applied to your patients. Additionally, ongoing clinical trials and new approaches to improve mobilization will be reviewed.

Benefits of Participating

  • Learn how the experts apply the latest data in stem cell mobilization to patient scenarios.
  • Interact with expert faculty to address your questions about stem cell mobilization.
  • Hear emerging data regarding new techniques and therapeutics on the horizon for stem cell mobilization.

Target Audience

This educational program is intended for hematologists, medical oncologists, researchers, and investigators who treat or are interested in the treatment of patients with 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

At the conclusion of this activity, participants should be better prepared to:

  • Review current strategies for stem cell mobilization in patients with multiple myeloma and non-Hodgkin lymphoma undergoing ASCT.
  • Utilize optimal strategies to individualize stem cell mobilization outcomes in the context of mitigating treatment-related toxicities.
  • Assess recent clinical trial evidence regarding agents available to increase the efficacy of stem cell mobilization.
  • Integrate recent data into current clinical practice to optimize personalized approaches for stem cell mobilization among patients with multiple myeloma and non-Hodgkin lymphoma
