Community Practice Connections™: T-Cell Lymphoma Tumor Board: Application of Novel Agents for the Treatment of PTCL and CTCL

Release Date: February 16, 2021
Expiration Date: February 16, 2022

Activity Overview

T-cell lymphomas (TCLs) are a set of non-Hodgkin lymphomas (NHLs) that account for an estimated 5% to 20% of all NHL cases in Western countries. Common subtypes of peripheral T-cell lymphomas (PTCLs) include PTCL not otherwise specified, which is the most aggressive of all lymphoid neoplasms. There are over 10 subtypes of cutaneous T-cell lymphomas (CTCL) CTCL, with mycosis fungoides (MF) as the most common variant of CTCL, representing about 50% of all cases. The rapid pace and sheer volume of recent data has improved our understanding of TCL pathophysiology and has led to therapeutic advancements for the treatment of PTCL and CTCL focused on personalized management strategies.

This Community Practice Connections™ program provides an in-depth review of some of the key highlights from the 62nd American Society of Hematology Annual Meeting & Exposition, held in December 2020. This unique and engaging multi-media activity is ideal for the community-based clinician and focuses on the practical aspects managing patients with PTCL and CTCL, putting recent clinical trial data into clinical context. The program is designed for those who did not attend the live meeting and to help reinforce learnings for those who did.
