Community Practice Connections™: Emerging Paradigms to Address Unmet Needs in Relapsed/Refractory DLBCL

Release Date: January 31, 2020
Expiration Date: January 31, 2021
Media: Internet - based

Activity Overview

Diffuse large B-cell lymphoma (DLBCL) is the most common type of non-Hodgkin lymphoma and is an aggressive disease. There is a need for continued clinical development of treatment for newly diagnosed and relapsed/refractory (R/R) DLBCL. In the past few years, several novel agents have been approved by the FDA to treat patients with R/R DLBCL, with many more therapies under investigation. The constant emergence of new treatment options is shifting the landscape for clinicians who manage patients with DLBCL. As clinical trials continue to accumulate data, clinicians must consider these results for appropriate patient recruitment into clinical trials and preemptively contemplate how the reported data may change best practice for R/R DLBCL.

This Community Practice Connection™ program will provide an opportunity for clinicians to participate in an online series of video interviews with top experts in DLBCL on current strategies to assess risk, clinical outcomes related to first-line standards of care, exploration of unmet treatment needs for patients with R/R DLBCL, and frontline data pertaining to treatment of transplant-ineligible patients with R/R DLBCL.

Benefits of Participating

  • See how top experts assess risk and manage patients with DLBCL
  • Gain expert insights into treatment of transplant-ineligible patients with R/R DLBCL
  • Develop strategies to manage therapy-related adverse events
  • Learn about emerging agents for patients with R/R DLBCL
