Community Practice Connections™: MPN Tumor Board: Application of Novel Agents for the Treatment of Polycythemia Vera and Myelofibrosis

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

Activity Overview

This interactive, case-based online activity features commentary from leading clinical experts in MPN treatment: Ronald Hoffman, MD; Rami S. Komrokji, MD; Ann Mullally, MD; and Abdulraheem Yacoub, MD. Topics include the impact of histologic and molecular patient characteristics on treatment decision making, JAK-STAT inhibition and interferon therapy as clinical strategies, and a look at the evolving therapeutic landscape for patients with myeloproliferative neoplasms‎ (MPNs). Specifically, clinical cases examining appropriate treatment options for patients with varying degrees of risk with polycythemia vera (PV) and myelofibrosis (MF) are presented. The latest data from clinical trials investigating emerging agents and combination strategies across MPNs are applied to faculty discussion of pertinent clinical cases.

Benefits of Participating

  • Update your clinical approach through a discussion of the most up-to-date risk-scoring systems for MPNs in patients with varying risk levels
  • Review best practices for management of patients with MPNs
  • Learn how to evaluate patients for referral to clinical trials
  • Hear top experts develop appropriate treatment plans for a variety of patients with MPNs
