New Targets, New Data, New Guidelines: Assessing Treatment Options to Personalize Care in B-Cell Lymphomas

Release Date: January 11, 2021
Expiration Date: January 11, 2022

Activity Overview

Non-Hodgkin lymphomas (NHLs) are a diverse group of lymphoproliferative disorders that can occur at any age. The American Cancer Society projects a total of 77,240 new NHL diagnoses in 2020. These new cases, combined with new cases diagnosed in previous years, will result in an estimated 19,940 deaths. More than 680,000 people in the US are currently living with NHL. More than 60 different NHL subtypes have been identified and assigned names by the World Health Organization. This program will focus on the 3 most common B-cell lymphomas including diffuse large B-cell lymphoma (DLBCL), follicular lymphoma (FL), and mantle cell lymphoma (MCL).

This online, on-demand virtual symposium brings together renowned experts in in B-cell lymphomas. In this educational program these experts use a case-based format to discuss the latest data regarding the management of non-Hodgkin lymphoma, share their perspectives and best practices, and provide insight into the mitigation and management of key safety issues among patients with follicular lymphoma, mantle cell lymphoma, and diffuse large B-cell lymphoma.

This educational activity is an archive of the live virtual symposium held on December 4, 2020.

Learning Objectives

Upon successful completion of this activity, you should be better prepared to:

  • Describe tumor biomarkers across NHLs in the context of NHL pathophysiology to understand the relevance of these data in determining patient prognosis and selecting appropriate therapy for patients with DLBCL, FL, and MCL
  • Integrate available treatment strategies, including chemotherapy-free treatment strategies across NHLs, to better understand the efficacy and safety of these agents in patients with DLBCL, FL, and MCL
  • Evaluate approaches to mitigate, monitor, and manage adverse events associated with therapeutic regimens used in the treatment of patients DLBCL, FL, and MCL
  • Assess clinical trials of novel agents and therapeutic combinations for patients with DLBCL, FL, and MCL
