Live Tumor Board! Experts Navigate the Impact of Neutropenia Across Tumor Types

Release Date: June 29, 2021
Expiration Date: June 29, 2022

Activity Overview

This online, on-demand virtual symposium brings together renowned international experts from several fields of cancer care clinical research to discuss the challenges associated with management of neutropenia. In this educational program, didactic and case presentations will investigate the use of prophylactic growth factors (granulocyte colony-stimulating factors; G-CSF) and biosimilars in patients receiving induction chemotherapy regimens that convey high risk for developing febrile neutropenia. Expert analyses will include a look at both the benefits and limitations associated with approved strategies. This activity will also include a comprehensive discussion of recent data from clinical trials of emerging agents in this space that aim to address unmet needs in cancer patients, including common quality of life issues, such as bone pain, that can arise from G-CSF regimens.

This educational activity is an archive of the live virtual webcast held on June 7, 2021.
